Been using it mostly in offline squad battles on legendary level with this team and so far it has been good but tends to be too open some times after attacking.
My wingers are more involved in the games and same goes for my midfielders as well .
only issue I have with the formation is it leaves my mid really open when i attack and was wondering if maybe there is a way to tweak this

    I can't see your teams, but maybe have your CMs stay back when attacking or have one attack and one defend.

    Does anyone use this formation in Rivals effectively?

    Never lost a game to players using this formation .

    It’s to offensive and just wide open in the middle ... I usually have 3,4,5 players in the middle (433 or 4411)

    So opponent just runs around to get a ball....

    Pros:- it’s good for high pressure (4 forwards vs 4 defenders ) . But only if you are good at counter press in final 1/3.

    Cons- if you face a good (not top, just good ) player , he easily would pass a ball to the center mid area cutting your 4 players behind

    It might work if you have 2 tank CMs , strong , aggressive , fast ( like Gullit/ Viera/ TOTY Kante etc . ) who are forced to stay back ...

    Ps: this formation is used by PROs as super attack when they are loosing 1-2 goals. But other than that - it’s not competitive in WL

    very incisive post...have not used it against online players yet so have no idea what it might be like but you are very right with regards to how open my mid seem to be with this formation
    its ore like a 41212 wide if you have a combative midfielder who can run every where or 2 combative mids who can run everywhere and have an eye for attacks and also good to decent defensive abilities

    True ! And I hardly remember I lost many games to 41212 wide either .. maybe 2-3 games out of 50-60 ones

    It’s up to you but I personally don’t play either of those ...

    Ps: when loosing and need to score I switch to 352 or 3412 . All in :)))

    Works 7-8 times out of 10 I score 1 or 2 ..

    I use this formation, and find it enjoyable to use. I use prime Ballack and Futmas Torreira as cm. Torreira at stay back, and get in the box with Ballack. Torreira is a beast, covers a lot of ground. Sure, I get countered sometimes, but hey, downside of playing offensive football.

    I use this as my all out attack option and works relatively well. I wouldn't use it for an entire game though, linking defence and attack becomes a problem.

    Small tip - 3 at back with attacking instructions is very effective VS people using 4312 or similar with only 2 players up front .

    You got 3 CBs VS 2 ST ...

    Plus tons of space on the wing with your winger mids

    This is the main formation I've used all year I normally get Gold 2 Weekend league almost Gold 1 and i'm in division 3 on Rivals. What I realised early on is whatever formation you have if opponent is better or EA wants them to win theres nothing you can do. Formation is fun and can leave you open but you instruct CM to stay back which helps a bit. I've beat every formation with this this year full icon teams etc

    8/10 people i play against use it to go all in.
    Barely works though, probably cause of the lack of midfielders.
    I lways switch to 3412 when im down in the end of the game.

    I also think it depends on how good a player you are and can play almost all formations..if you take the time to find your players and make intelligent decisions,you do have a chance

    Yes I always play this formation if u get a early lead they tend to quit its most effective to have 1 cm on high high and the other on low high I have potm geortza and sbc de rossi it's much better than the 4231 which is sooooo boring to play I rather attk n score lots

    Not if ur good at passing its not if u just want to keep lumping the ball in behind will leave to much space but it's perfect for a passing build up game
