How does this instruction work ???

Does it only kick in during the final third or what??

On LM/LW
How does free roam differ from balanced?
Presumably a player can either stay wide, cut inside, or do either.
So how does free roam differ from balanced for a winger ???

How does it interact with "get in behind" instructions?? Etc

What dictates a players movement?
How does the player decide to move where they do?? Do they randomly move about the pitch or do they have an "intention" when roaming Free?

Is there any clear guide on how free roam works ¿?

    I think they just move into space if it's available. Unfortunately this game is pretty linear when it comes to movements, so I notice it a bit, but the player generally stays near his position. Like when I used to put my CAM on free roam in a 41212 narrow you'd see him in different spots in front of the penalty box, but you'd rarely see him like out on the wing or something.

    I tried it on my LM didn't really notice much, but because it's a really deep role I dunno if it was starting too early.

    But he seemed far less effective or featured than usual. In fact my LB took over his role.

    Yea, I noticed they will switch positions a lot of the time. I generally only notice a positive difference when they are a middle of the field position.
  • Free Roam usually works best for a creative winger. They usually just go more central in game around the CAM position. I've noticed stamina is drained faster.

    When Arsenal played Man Utd I noticed Ozil on paper started out as a RW and I'm sure Unai gave him instructions to float around to try and create and link play. This is how it would work in real life but in game it's pretty limited.

    I'm sure Özil was supposed to be more central in that game...

    Like a 3412. I know the formation got presented like this, too.

    Tbf they seemed to move about a bit that front 3.
