11 of my last Rivals games out of 12 have been against 4231 sheeps.
No need to even mention the 2 depth and/or drop back as this is a given at this stage.
Sure, this formation is part of football, no doubt, and is a real formation. But it's so damn annoying to be playing litterally every game against the same formation. Div 2 to 4 are filled with 4231, there's nothing else. Never been in Div 1 but I assume it's the same.
They have created an OP formation that 99% of the pros use (which also help making tournies the bore fest they are given how this formation plays) and that all sheeps play with now as well.
It participates to make this game so dull, it's way better to have some diversity in the games, it's not the case when you constantly face the same formation.
The game would just be bettter without this formation and would force people to try something new. Irrespective of the fact that it would remove a formation that exists in real life, who cares about that, it's not like all teams were playing it in real life either. If we were to remove another formation, say 41212 wide, no one would care. They should just remove 4231 it would make the game more fun.
