Changing formation from kick off shouldn't be allowed

Feels like every weekend more and more players are doing the stupid switch from 4321 to 4-1-2-1-2 at kick off due to popular youtubers doing it.

Why is this allowed to happen? It's cheating the chemistry system deleting the point of building a good hybrid if it can just be cheated.

    It should be allowed, however the chemistry should be changed. Ea will never do anything about it tho

    I concur. Formations should be locked ala draft

    All modes should be like draft? That's stupid.

    Seems that'd be an "or" not an "and." Unless you're being stupid again.

    I think you should also be allowed to adjust players positions in a game, why did ea take this away, its stupid.

    If i get a red card i would like to be able to adjust positions to make up the gap and sucks ea took it away

    I just find it annoying if you cant find and make a team and players work within the chemistry restrictions and formations available and need to try abuse a change for a few points of chem you will likely not notice you can EAD... it is a slog playing WL anyway every game (nearly) copping the inherent pause ASAP is a pain! or right after scoring - just play the fkn game ladssssssssssss

    We all know that's not the real reason people change formation.

    It is one reason people do it.

    Yes, I realize people do it to avoid chem penalties too. But plenty of people did simply use it to adjust to an opponent or situation.

    Worst case lock formation until the half. Even that is excessive, really.

    Personally I say make it a quick change option, like with tactics. Allow them to change formation (defining pre-match which players go where) anytime without pausing.

    I honestly don't care if somebody wants to move Ronaldo to striker at 10 instead of 7. The difference is marginal. I'm just sick of waiting around while they do it.

    Better solution is to add more positioning change like lw--> st or rb--> rm

    Should have to wait 30-45 mine before you can do it.
    Too many sheep playing this game

    I try to keep the ball at kick off, if I see a very odd looking 4321.


    To be honest it just very annoying.

    I don't mind either, I just hate waiting.

    You should just get chem penalties. Everyone goes to 6 chem if you swap formation IMO.

    Simple solution is that chemistry changes to what it would have been if you'd started with that formation.

    Should of been that way period

    The issue is (as with most of this horrendous game) that people are doing it to exploit the glitches, rather than just getting good at the game and playing normally.

    You should be able to change formation if you wish, as if you get a red card or find yourself against a particular opponents PTB style play or high pressure nonsense you may want to adjust. However doing it from kick off should be a no no. The easy fix would be to include chemistry "in game" or get rid of it altogether

    In addition, for me, it says a lot about a player when they do this and likely that they are the same players who will glitch the life out of this game until it breaks and hold the ball in the corner at 70mins

    Just my opinion tho

    they never gonna do this because In Forms with an position change will be less valueable. Which causes less people opening packs so less money for EA.

    Nope they will never change it because it's allowed in the big tournaments... also this has been in FUT for years never saw so many people complaining about a 20 second pause at the start of a game.

    When i play them i know there whole game is cut back passes and corner expliotd and just every youtube tutorial out there
  • I don't personally do this, but i don't think i should be punished for changing my formation if i need to change things up. Why does it bother you guys anyway? Lemme guess you're getting beat by people who change their formations?
