Has anyone found their definitive formation?

Has anyone actually landed on a formation to stick with yet? I keep going back and forth between 1 and 2 striker formations but without ever really making any conclusions.

    4231 with CAMs seems to be the meta

    4132 loving this atm its solid all round & sometimes switch IG to 4222. 4411 is also very good, was having a bit of fun with 433(2) as well but nothing beats 4132 for me yet

    To those using one striker are you not struggling at all to create? I’m enjoying 4231/433(2)/4411 defensively but finding it hard work to create. I’ve seen someone recommending setting the tactic to fast build up so might try that.

    4411 has given me the most success. Target man up top, fast, shifty player at CF/CAM and two do-it-all CMs.

    See I've got a fast shifty player up top (87 Butragueno) and Pogba as CF. Works very well too. However, now contemplating putting Pogba back into CM (replacing David Silva) and buying a new CF like Bergkamp. Not sure yet.

    When you will reach skill rating where you play people on your level. And you lose one, win one, you will never be sure about formation. I want to switch formation every game now :D

    Interesting. My CF usually makes runs off of my striker holding the ball up but I may opt to give it a shot the other way around and see how it goes

    I am switching between 41212(2) and 4231 at the moment. I am finding that 4231 works better really but I do struggle having only 1 striker sometimes.

    It's a bit of a catch 22. Either I only have 1 striker and struggle without having 2 or I have only 1 CDM and struggle without a second :lol:

    Any suggestions welcome.

    442 was good
    41212(2) poor and repetitive
    4321 and 433(2) is what I'm using atm, but I think it doesn't impact my skill level forn now

    You'll get countered ALOT on fast build up. But it does help with runs forward. I use the get in the box quick tactic on the d-pad, that works well.

    Just stuck to 442 atm, tried a few others like 41212-2 which wa any go to, but with a lot of wide formations and crossing being op it’s not the best defensively.

    442 seems pretty well rounded even with my average team so I reckon with 2 quality cms it would be very good.

    Always floated around with 41212 and 352 but this year loving the 4132. It just suits my play style perfectly. That with the new dynamic custom tactics I’m loving online play

    I’ve had great success using 433(2).

    It’s not my favourite formation but I’m winning games with it.

    Width is so important this FIFA and this formation suits the gameplay to a T
