Have a glut of attacking players, seeing if anyone dares to play a more attacking formation that the usual?

    Yeah just the one holding CDM, run the 4-1-2-1-2 (2) with this team.

    I dont play any, 2CMs all the way, none of this stifling, defensive nonsense.

    Changed to 433-4 last week so havent used any CDM since then.

    Struggle against elite players and would probably not be able to reach elite but its more fun and I reach gold 2 much faster than before since most quit within the first 30 min.

    Mainly used 4231 in WL before and had good results but it was to boring.

    4132 is my go to formation gives a lot more attacking options when you have a wall of defenders to break down, only switch to 4231 if I'm getting battered.

    That's what I've been using.

    Had both CM on balanced for most of the year but eventually went more defensive to protect against counter attacks. One stay back (currently Witsel) and edge of box for crosses works well.

    4-3-2-1 for me no actual CDM. I have Kostic acting as one the in the middle of the 3 on Stay back, the other two CM's are on get forward. Such a fun formation. I don't gave much love for defensive players, want as many attackers as possible!

    Have never played 4231, can't stand playing defensively from the off. I'd much rather lose more and have fun than set ut worrying about losing.

    433(4) all out attack, although my CMs are 2 out of TOTY Kante, FB Allan, TOTS de Jong and Base Blanc

    That's pretty much two CDMs then :#

    It all depends on player instructions really.

    I play Maradona as a cdm in a 352.

    He's like one of the dogs who barks at your feet but doesn't bite :D

    No, 4132 for me.
    Can’t stand one up front formations.

    I play a flat 4-3-3. Wingers and striker on stay forward.
    One midfielder on stay back and the other two on balanced.
    Fullbacks also on balanced and overlap.
    7 depth press after possession loss.

    It's probably why I haven't reached elite in a while but so much more enjoyable as its basically non stop attack.

    Used to play 4-2-3-1 but it's agonisingly boring.

    41212 was the most meta abusive formation for 5 years (and still remains so if you use bs pressing tactics), but for some reason users think their unique because they spam 1-2s between their strikers and rely on aid$ to score
