Tell me why you think that formation is currently working for you, i'm interested!

Been rocking a 4411 for a while but it's become a little lackluster. Really depends on stamina imo.

    ive been using 433 for the last few fifas but might have to change it up, as its not really working out. i want to either use 41212 with lm/rm, lcm/rcm or 4312. only problem is that i have to fit in purple sterling somewhere.

    3-5-2 or surprisingly a 4-4-2 they seem rather balanced this year

    41212 (2) because its the only thing I've been using so far but I feel like I need wingers in div 2 so I can bang in crosses and score atleast.

    4231(2) hard to break down lots of passing options.

    Strikers is a bit too isolated for my taste though :'(

    I think it is the first year that every formation is viable, I've moved over to 352 now and am creating far more chances but have used both 4231(2) and 433(2) with good success too

    442, suits the way I play, 2 box-to-box type midfielders in the middle and 2 target men because I'm a cross abusing little **** :)

    I'm also having this problem, it started off really well for me but the last 5-10 games I'm struggling to create chances

    Intrigued by the 352 but I'm a terrible defender. What sort of set up is needed?

    I can't decide!

    Started with 41212 (2)...then moved to 4231 and found something that works.

    Now I'm finding it's not as effective (I think people are adjusting to the game and thus the lone striker is starting to get isolated).

    So I'm considering going back to 41212 (2).

    I've always liked at least one defined CDM and one CAM so I kinda back myself into a corner when it comes to formations.

    I have been using 433(4) and having a bit of sucess. Like it's mentioned everyone online seems to be rockinng the same.

    Had a go at 352 last night for 1 game and was really impressed. The CB's had to be fast with good work rates (used some from the K League, stupidly good CB's).

    Liking 352 a lot this year too. Worried I might get destroyed by wide play but it's really changed my results for the better

    I was hating the game until i switched to the false 9, if you like to play possession football i would recommend

    Had a lot of success with 442 thus far. Won the draft 5 times and I think 4 of those was using 442.

    For the first time since FIFA 12, I'm really liking this formation! Seems really well balanced, and finding a lot of space for my players

    Width, depth, just all around a complete formation. Doesn't have weaknesses.

    Does that formation create enough chances? Because I want to use it but not sure about it attacking wise.
