Haven't played any seasons yet, just some drafts so I am wondering what formation I should use to build a squad to play with? I am leaning towards 4-3-3 or either the good old 4-1-2-1-2 (2). Which formation seems to be populair at the moment?

Any insight is appreciated!

    433(4) for me.

    Due to it bein. Slower paced you don’t gotsa worry about being caught on the counter. It’s quality

    Thank you for your comment. I have always liked 4-3-3 (4), but more in a casual way. For those who played a bunch of games, which formation do you see the most?

    why would you pause to switch when the game now has custom gameplans?

    Custom game plans can be for the formation they want, but the balanced game plan still needs a formation change

    Getting some good results with 4222, i imagine 442 to be good as well.
    41212(2) is way too narrow for 19, for me at least.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I think I'll either go with 4-3-2-1 or 4-4-1-1 and see how it goes. Probably 4-4-1-1 because it seems more fun

    Ive come up against 442 the most and I play the 4411. Usually use 433-2 but 4411 seemed to work better for me

    Couldn’t get on with any 4-3-3 variation but 4-4-1-1 is working an absolute treat right now.

    Any guys fancy sharing their 4-4-1-1 custom tactics please? I am going with:

    Immobile
    Dybala
    Costa Savic Matuidi Cuardardo
    Telles Miranda Manolas Cancelo
    Handanovic

    I picked 4-2-3-1 and it seemed solid, but I switched around alot when things weren't working out. I usually went with the classic 4-3-3 (4). I am not really sure about 4-4-1-1 yet and didn't face anyone using that formation either. I am however tempted to try it out still

    This confused me. Sat there thinking why on earth would you use an 83 rated La Liga CB in central midfield, went and looked at his stats on FUTBin to see if I was missing something.. and then it clicked. Jesus I need to go back to bed :joy:

    Heisenburg- I recommend Cancelo overlap, matuidi stay back while attacking.

    4-1-2-1-2 (2) is now ❤️❤️❤️❤️. I Find it so funny when I encounter it and the guy thinks he can still play like in FIFA 15, 16, 17 & 18 :))))
