Had a lot of fun using my old favourite last night. The wingers actually work on this game. It’s nice for playing tiki taka and keeping the ball and pretty decent on the break to. I’m happy to see classic football formations working in game.

    Yeah my teams are both terrible however I might spend some coins soon. Will be using 433 5 for possession and 433 4 and 2 for attacking.

    Lots of triangles for attacking.

    I couldn't make it work, never could figure out the proper instructions/tactics to have my wingers make properly timed runs. I'm back to using a 4-2-2 (2) and switching between it and 4-2-2-2 in game and finding it far easier to create offense with two strikers.

    I've been thinking of running this myself with KDB as a CF due to his great passing

    I'm also enjoying the false 9 this year. Depay at CF with Robben and Coman as my two wingers. Cutting inside and crossing works great with this formation.

    Depends entirely on how you play. I just use standard stuff. Stay back on cdm, cut inside get in behind for wingers.

    Is it back for a casual player lol, I use to use this about 4 years ago and never got it to work since them. 433 (original) seems good

    Try a few win wingers on balanced. I find it plays a lot better. 433(4) if that matters

    Anyone got some attacking custom tactics to get the best out of this? I really like this, but feel like I could attack better

    Anyone got some attacking custom tactics to get the best out of this? I really like this, but feel like I could attack better

    I am playing with these instructions:

    LW+RW: cut in + get in behind
    both CM: free roam
    CDM: stay back
    LB+RB: join the attack

    LB+RB that attacking leaves me vulnerable in defense, but my RB IF Meunier is just to good to stay back.

    i use false 9 as one of my formations to counter the narrow formations on the fly, then switch back and forth..dynamic tactics are very useful in this FIFA

    How is firmino at CF? Passing and finishing is great, i know. But can he win headers too? I am playing Lukaku as false 9 at the moment. he is not agile at all, but his strenght and heading are so good. I think i will miss that on firmino

    I prefer a small guy at cf. Was using Mertens but now splurged on 91 Hagi. Tend not to cross so heading not important.

    Do you all set your F9 as F9 in instructions?

    Loved this formation in fifa 13 with Ronaldinho at CF. Through the years it was difficult to use but i might have try this again!

    He is perfect for me, bangs in headers also

    Yes posession on balanced.
    I use only false 9 instruction on him. Works fine for me.
    Wingers stay forward, cut inside, get behind
    Cdm stay back

    I must say starting off safe I used 4411 & 4231 wide, but the 433[5] is great for me
    Defence is try to gain possession when lost ball, one notch narrower & deeper
    I kept attack on balanced
    wingers GIB CI
    CDM SBWA & CC
    I did not touch the ST yet

    How about Neymar as CF? That double 5* looks great for the position, plus good shooting and passing

    Anymore success? Trying aguero as CF right now and really he sort of works but feel I could be better off with somebody with more hold up play
