Is there a formation in particular you are enjoying using atm? Be interesting to see what everyone is rolling with.. oh and post your WL finish also! I'm a average player and had Gold 3 with 4321.

    Nope. Feel like my mids get overrun in 433. Seems no matter what adjustment I make it’s exploited.

    Yeah 442 flat is working for me too. Did use 41212 narrow pre patch, and since FIFA 10 lol but needed width to break the Berlin wall every game without sacrificing my full backs due to counters. A proper mix it up formation, love it so far.

    Never used 442 in any Fifa, is it a fun formation to use?

    Bit of a dumb question probably, but what position is the Key position in this formation? Are the wingers involved in a lot of goals or is it mainly strikers?

    Start 433(4) and switch to 41212(2) at half time.

    Played this weekend with 4312 for the first time.

    Started off 9-2, since then I seem to have lost my thumbs. 12-6 now.

    In my opinion it's all about having a well balanced team. I like to have a defensive minded CM and an attacking CM. Two good midfielders will play a large role in defense and be able to create chances for the strikers and wingers. Also helps if they can score a goal or two.

    I play everything on balanced with no instructions except for the fullbacks to stay back.

    I find I am able to adapt to my opponent's attacking style and am able to counter it fairly well.

    You need elite cms in it. Very tough formation to play without them.

    I play 87 Scholes and standard Kante as cms in my 442, have Kante on stay back and Scholes on mixed, I don't like him too close to the strikers.

    Stick with 4321 - it's a good mix of effective and fun.

    Don't fall in with the 2 CDM 4231 crowd.

    Ran 41212 wide for the second half of the WL after I had it set on one of my CT's and realized I was playing better with it than my default & only lost 2 games iirc

    Bizarre because when 41212 used to be the top formation I never got on with it at all.

    Gone back to 4132 now. I don’t need 2 cdms anymore since timed finesses shots got nerfed big time. Also two strikers helps to occupy both cb’s which helps with overloads

    Fair enough. I get bored defending so throwing a minimum of 5 players forward with every attack keeps the game interesting for me.
