    Double up on the wings. 442 or 4222. Just make sure you don’t keep your full backs staying back and you should hurt them getting down the wings. Also have a pass around the back to pull their defence out a bit too before attacking

    I tried 532 to see what the fuss was and it has to be one of the most boring fifa experiences I've had. Went back to my normal options after three games.
  • I was wondering why everyone's using 532? Is it supposed to be good? Alls that's happened is I've dominated the ball in every game why the other guy sits with a deep line of players and then struggles to get forward when he gets the ball. Yawn. Only lost 1 WL game and that was against a guy who wasn't using it 😂

    the hype started when a PRO player took apart everyone with 5atb
    Youtube jumped on the wagon

    I use it on 7 depth with heavy pressing. The wing backs are actually way wider than any other formation or squad because everyone has low defensive width and low defensive depth. For me it is the anti-meta formation best against 1 depth drop back as its hard to counter - iv gone from conceding 2-4 counter goals a game to conceding 0-1 counter goals a game. This has turned many losses and draws into wins.

    People who dont play 1 depth drop back do a lot better against me and the formation so there we go.

    I take this back played someone who scored 2 counter goals from 2 shots against me, fouled me from behind everytime i was through on goal, and played 9 men in the box. So it doesn’t necessarily beat the meta way of playing ...

    It’s the opposite for me. 2 full backs bombing forward and 2 cm’s on balanced to score goals. It’s actually given me an incentive to play against everyone’s usual formations, including the ultra boring 4231

    4231 and 4222 with defenders and cdms stay back is 6atb. U all jusy cry while Jota goes 30-0 in wl. 5atb the lwb and rwb bomb forward all the time, use your brains and doubke up the wings like some ppl said.

    Well, I think it's the way you play it.

    Everybody spits on 5atb, yet a 352 is considered brave.

    The 352 ultra defensive is way more defensive than a 51212 ultra attacking.

    It really is pathetic that people want to play like this to sweat wins.

    I had one guy sub off an attacker for a CB and switched to 532 at half time.

    The game was already 0-0 and dull as dish water and my opponent made it even more dull.

    I celebrated like hell when I scored the winner late on 😄

    Yeah it’s really pathetic that people want to use a formation that’s in the game,

    Glad you celebrated like “HELL’” that must have taught him real guuuud,

    Ea should just get rid of all formations it’s totally pathetic

    Its the fact that all the sheep are all just starting to use it because of some youtuber. They will move onto another formation in a few weeks when a youtuber tells them what to use 😴 😴 😴 😴 😴

    So what !

    If people want to check on YouTube for a formation that’s there choice, some people are bad at setting up a formation n tactics, some don’t have time to test every formation out. Some watch the videos and like the way the formations is said to play out.

    So many babies in here crying

    Sheep’s are spamming skill moves because of youtubers

    Sheep are spamming passes because of pep

    Sheep’s don’t even like fifa they on bought it coz of youtubers

    I just stick to 4411, the more the other person defends with the less there is to deal with at the back for me.

    That is what I use this year I'm really liking it a good well balanced formation

    Why can't people just try formations and tactics without having to have their hands held by the goons on youtube
