    Yes, I noticed weekend when I was on WL, every game after gold ranking had or changed to this formation. If you can't beat them.....

    Just experienced this as well, quit the game in the 50th minute as the guy had 2 shots 2 goals, with 29% possession and he was rocking 41212 narrow. Absolutely ruined me on them two counters, it was fun playing with 4222.. sigh

    Found that as soon i got to div 3, everyone is playing it.

    Doing alright scoring but you can't switch off for a second defensively.

    433 or 4231 wide seems to work against it fairly well

    What kind of tactics and instructions? Play style? (full on pressuring from top?)

    4231 is a 41212-2 killer

    The best killer is 5212.

    41212 is the best and it doesnt have counterplay. Your best chance is to play 41212 against 41212. Sad state of the game and the same every year.

    There is no formation i hate more than 41212(2).

    I make sure to abuse any game mechanic i can when i come up against it.
    If i take the lead i switch wide and just keep the ball until they are forced to open up gaps and press me.

    No way im getting into a wall of 7 defenders just for them to make 1 pass and get a 3 vs 4 situation every time.

    Anything you can utilise the space on the wings with works - two wide players each side up against their full backs, with plenty of space to run into - if you draw their central players wide bring the play inside they’ll be unbalanced in midfield and you’ll have a runner free on the opposite wing.

    Am I the only one who uses 4-1-2-1-2 wide? Enjoy running at people with the wingers.

    Works well for me. But I like them to come back and help for defense, so stamina and defense is needed for my play style.
