    I've used 433 (4) and the 41212 wide a bunch

    Used 433(2) for the most part. Tried 41212(2) this WL & i'm not sure i like it.

    I play 4411, 433(2) or both 4231 variations. I want to have width and try to play nice football. Those formations are too narrow and direct, I get no satisfaction playing them. I don't blame those who use them but it's kind a boring playing against 4321 all the time, it's like playing the same opponent on and on.

    Guys be proud of yourself because you chose to play football in the correct way. All these other guys with narrow formations are just ****!

    Was going to post my response but yours pretty much sums it up. Ha.

    I only play the 4321 when I want to make hybrids around a certain player like Jonas, but IF Pizzi fixed that.

    Instead of complaining think WHY people are favouring these formations. Surely if 85% of the community is playing this way it makes it easier to think of an effective counter tactic.

    Hint: 3 at the back formations are good if you set the width up correctly.

    Also playing 4411 and constantly reaching Elite 1 or Top 40 on PC. The formation allows you to play through the middle and with wingers and crosses, so the variety is very nice.

    3421 for me.

    I used to play 433(4)

    But 4-3-2-1 is just miles easier to make a team with higher chemistry, at least with my squad.

    Not sure why you hate a formation.

    I play 4411 and the 4231(2). The 4231(2) has been great for me so far.

    Got to Gold 1 with 4-1-4-1 formation. Would have hit elite 3 with it if it wasn't for Internet problems early on.

    I play 4312 as I feel it's the most balanced formation in the game.

    And in my opinion, your formation doesn't dictate how you play the game.

    I play 4141 exclusively. Has everything and is strong in attack as well with a lot of passing.
    In FUT11-12 I played 4312 only. It was insane for me. Than the next 3 FIFAs I went with 451 only. Loved the attack and now it's 4141

    I play 4-2-3-1 (2) at the moment as well, it seems to be the best at countering the 4-3-2-1 and 4-3-3(4) i meet in 9 out of 10 games.

    Use whatever formation you like, it's up for your opponent to counter it if he struggles against you lol.

    I need width in my side and I've used both 4-4-1-1 and 4-2-3-1(2) to great effect.

    Don't understand why many formations are hated. Alot are very similar, those 433 variations are close to 4321. The players in the positions annoy me more, pace pace pace

    4-3-3 (4) is also super scummy. I play 4-4-2 and 4-3-3 (5) for the record.
