Best formation for all out attack?

I'm looking for a formation/tactic that just swarms my opponent... I don't care how many goals I concede, I just wanna pound their defense to the ground.

I've tried 451, but it's bugged for me. My cm is constantly switching places with my right mid...

Any suggestions for an all out offense? My favorite way to play is possession and slow build up, but ea just doesn't reward this kind of play - ❤️❤️❤️❤️ it, I'm going full out zerg!

    424 I would think. Leaves you sparse in midfield but attack is savage.

    Always liked 3412 for attacking as well and it’s not “that horrible” defensively

    I'll try that. Just tried 3142... won 5-1 but my opponent sucked... 3142 implies that you have wingers, but really they are cms...

    424 with attacking fullbacks might be savage. Like I said, could care less about conceding. Division rank is pointless right now. I just wanna ground n pound lol.

    Lol. Been playing max depth, fast build up, and constant pressure. Haven't tried much of 4222 this year - I'll give it try with overlapping fullbacks.

    4411 has been insane for me for the last few months.

    I used 4321 for a long time, but had trouble finding passing options near the final third. It's a good one though - I use it with a false 9 on the striker.

    3412 is getting it done right now. Surprisingly, it's been good defensively too. Played 2 matches - won both, 5-1 and 4-1.

    Probably an unpopular opinion but I find 5212 with attacking instructions really good. High pressure and high line. Still keeps some balance though. Just be wary of long diagonal chip through balls to the wingers while your wingbacks are still upfield...

    You need 424. Depth 10, pressure on heavy touch, FB’s on get forward.

    4222 has CDM’s, 424 has CM’s. Much better!

    I'm a fan of 3142 with 2 tall, offensive CMs who can win physical battles.

    8 depth
    Pressure on possession loss
    Winger stay forward, cut inside, gib
    CDM stay back
    Both CMs get forward, get into box
    1 ST target man
    1 ST go wide and GiB

    Yep, so far out of the ones I've tried, 3142 seems to cause the most havoc lol. The goal is to completely overwhelm and consume these drop back 1 depth sheep.

    I'm using gullit and pogba as cms. Both get forward. The high line helps my players get back... don't wanna use drop back tactic. Fast build up and constant pressure (I hate constant pressure, but ❤️❤️❤️❤️ em).

    I'm getting a lot of penalties lol - the opposition is clearly overwhelmed. Had three messages attacking me for being "sweaty". Looks like I'm achieving my goal 😅😅😉

    One CDM at stay back. The other one with get forward and get in the box.
    One ST with central and get in behind. (Pacey)
    The other one with target man. (Strength plus good passing)
    CAM as stay forward.
    And the wingers with get in behind.

    I think that should do it. It works for me sometimes as I'm an average player. I assume you are a much better player with even a better squad so that can help.
