4-4-1-1-formation-guide

Comments

  • Hi all, was struggling with this FIFA for so long. Tried this formation last night and it felt like a different game. Such a balanced formation and really enjoying it. Going to stick with it and try and tweak custom tactics.

    This is my current and only team now.

    Some of my more notable subs.

    Really unsure what direction to go in next. Sold my French team as it wasn't performing as good as this one.
    In my game plans I have the 41212(2) and it plays well. I want to play with the 4411, but I can't seem to get it to play similar to the 41212. The movement just isn't the same for some reason and I've tried different tactics and instructions.
    Also am I missing something by having Ibra sat on the bench. Would love for him to be in the starting 11 but then that means he starts on 4 or 5 chem unless I put Alessandrini at RM. If I do that then I'm using a sub straight away. What's your thoughts guys? What should I improve and how best to get Ibra in and what are the best tactics and instructions for him and as a whole?

    Anyone have any advice?

    Squeeze in Ibra. YYou can always sub Alessandrini. He's worth it.

    I use Ibra as the CF, he is perfect for this role imo. Great range of passing and his shots from the edge of the box are deadly. I have him set to target man though, not sure what instructions others are giving him?

    Finished gold 2 with 2 games left. Was 14-5 at one point but just couldn’t keep up the good form.

    @Littleland95 and @Khangaskhan17 if you played 4231 and used everything that is classed as the meta do you think you could get a lot higher rank or would it be the same as with 4411?

    I win more with 4231. Gold 1- Elite 2 depending on the squad if I go that route but it’s not enjoyable so I’d rather finish G2 with players I like in a formation I enjoy.

    Thanks. Yer it’s about enjoying the game isn’t it. I played a few games against it and the opponent was just running around with rttf Fabinho was so hard to create chances.

    He’s such a nuisance to play against but so terrible when I use him :sweat_smile:

    What tactics you using for 41212(2) ? Was thinking of having that set up on the d-pad if I’m chasing a game or trying to match my opponents to change it up

    That seems a bit extreme! 1 width and 5 depth?

    Getting TOTY Modric was the game changer. Not sure how I feel about Rijkaard. Feel like he always ends the game with 0 tackles, and have a hard time trying to catch anyone. However, he’s saved my butt against cross abusers many times this WL.

    Would you say Mendy is a game changer?

    I am thinking of buying TOTY Modric or mid Gullit, to partner mid Vieira. Who do you think is better for that spot? Does Modric's height cause problems?

    No.

    I don't enjoy playing the other formations and can't find anything that plays similar to 4411.

    Icons or Alessandrini and Felipe Anderson ?
