Re: Tactics Help Thread

I want to play a 4-1-3-2

my question is' date=' in the 3 spot can I play wingers on the far sides instead of RM and LM... it would look like this...

[center'] A. Robben C. Fabregas F. Malouda [/center]

does it make any difference??

thanks

It is best if you play a:

right midfielder --- centre midfielder --- left midfielder

The formation is not designed to play wingers. I think the way the game engine works is that if you play say a 90 rated winger in a left midfield, the game engine will realise he is playing out of position and interpret the player to be a 88 as he is out of position.

So the answer to your question, is that it does make a difference. Maybe the formation is not right for your team. Maybe try play 4-3-3

Re: Tactics Help Thread Well, imo at least last year they played 4-3-3 with wingers, full backs making runs: Dani Alves - Puyol - Pique - Abidal YaYa Touré Xavi - Iniesta Messi - Eto'o - Henr

You do realise this post is from 2008?

Re: Tactics Help Thread For those struggling with tactics I myself have tried a multitude of different formations/tactics and to me this is the best three formations that work, you might have to buy

Re: Tactics Help Thread

I need to beat 4-4-2 diamond. Their team is stronger than mine and they have won their last 6 games in a row.

I usually play 3-5-2.

I also signed Ganso but the image above is quite old so he is not on there.

If you need any other information, e.g. their team or my pre-match instructions just say and i can get it.

Re: Tactics Help Thread

Hey, I dont usually ask for help but my barcelona is in a bit of trouble and i need a formation change. I usually play a 4-2-3-1 that looks like this

---------------Buffon--------------

---Lahm---Puyol---Pique---A.Cole--

-----------Xavi-----Busquets------

---Higuain------Messi----Arshavin--

-----------------Villa--------------

It is the end of the season and I have come between 5th and 9th the last two seasons and would like to do better next season. It is probably the best lineup in this game world but can't seem to win

At the moment Higuain and Arshavin are injured but I have Pedro and Di Maria to back them up, unfortuetly Di Maria is injured too but I have James Rodriguez to back him up

ATM I just put in a 40 million bid for Bastian Schweinsteiger which I expect to be accepted soon as that was the counter offer

I just ask what would be the best formation in your opinion. I can beat the top two teams (Atletico Madrid and Sporting CP) because I have before but it is against teams like Internazionale and Liverpool i have screwed up in.

Any Help?

Thanks In advance

When u get schweini, play him in busquet's place. Then play a slow possession tactic using men behind the ball, ur playmaker (xavi), counter attack.

Mix it with short passing and put ur mentality as defensive.

I'm not entirely sure i would get Schweini, the Sporting Manager is actually a little stubborn with his players but after selling Dani Alves to arsenal for 30m and Arshavin (great Deal) I have the money tho satisfy the asking price. I'm just not sure if it will work out, hope it does coz the last manager of Sporting was a LOT worse;)

It's usually an AM position but yes, wingers can play there too, Someone like Iniesta would play their best there

Re: Tactics Help Thread

Hi, I have a new team that lines up like this:

I can play 4-5-1 like this:

......................................GIVEN

...ANYUKOV................ALVES...MEIRA.............LOMBAERTS

...JOAQUIN.................SEMAK...DENISOV.........DANNY

...................................ZYRYANOV

.....................................LIEDSON

Or I can play 5-4-1 like this:

......................................GIVEN

....................ANYUKOV.....ALVES.....LOMBAERTS

......SEMAK.......................MEIRA........................DENISOV

...........................JOAQUIN........DANNY

..................................ZYRYANOV

................................LIEDSON

They are one of the worst teams in Division 1 and seen as they are in WC 10000 they will be up against very expiriansed and higher rated opposition most of the time so I need a formation and tactics that can be giant killers.

But to get to my main point, how well to you think SEMAK and DENISOV would play in the 5-4-1 formation? Or do you think swapping their position with DANNY and JOAQUIN would be better? Or just play 4-5-1?

just play the 4-5-1 mate. Bring back Semak and Denisov with arrows, set Liedson as Target man and Zyryanov as Play maker. Play the Defensive long ball tactic that speegs mentions as that works really good against teams better than you.

And to think this is coming from another WC 10000 manager is crazy, but it has ;)

OK, I was going to play short passing (As that gets possession I think) or direct, but I'll take you advice:)

Thanks! :D

Re: Tactics Help Thread

My team's form is....well...weird.

I was 1st in my league after 4 or 5 games, then i ended up 19th somehow!

I'm doing pretty well in the cups, but thats not relevant.

I won my last game 1 nil, and that took me up to 16th :D

Ive changed my tactics to let some new guys get it, but i'd love your opinions on what to do :)

Formation: 4-2-2-2

Van Der Sar-94

A Beck-89 D Bonera-89 G Milito-91 J Capdevila-92

I Denisov-90 T Frings-92 Defensive Midfielders

A Ronaldinho-94 H Nilmar-90 Attacking Midefielders

D Forlan-94 M Petric-91 Forwards.

Thanks in advance :)

Do not repetitively change your formation as it makes you have inaccurate results. Stick with a succesful formation and keep your tactics the same (find something which works then just don't change it). Also, make sure you choose players according to their condition (if they are fit). E.g. Don't choose Messi just because he has a really good rating... if he is too tired (below 95% fitness, then don't play him). I find that playing players which are fully fit is better than playing better players that are tired. So you can change the players round in your team (which also helps morale) but don't change your formation and tactics around.

I suggest a 3-5-2 is a consisstent formation and you tend to get lots of wins consecutively if you stick with the formation for atleast 5 games.

Re: Tactics Help Thread

Ok' date=' so after recently bringing in 3 new guys to my team, my team looks like this...

Player---Position---Rating

Diego ALVES---GK---89

Hernan PELLERANO---CB---87

Jose Manuel CHICO---CB---88

Santiago ACASIETE---CB---87

Nicolas BURDISSO---CB/RB---90 (New, Played at RB)

Modeste M'BAMI---CM/DM---88 (The furthest back of 3 midfielders in 4-3-3 Wingers atm)

Kalu UCHE---Fwd/AM---87 (I play as the right attacking midfielder in 4-3-3 Wingers)

Ryan Giggs---LM/AM---93 (Played at left side attacking midfielder)

Pablo PIATTI---Wing/Fwd---88 (The left side winger atm)

Albert CRUSAT---Wing/Fwd---88 (The right side winger atm)

Ryan Babel---Wing/Fwd---89 (Played center attacker spot... see form 4-3-3 wingers for more info)

Basically looks like this atm.

---------------Alves---------------

-Burdisso-Pellerano-Chico-Acasiete-

--------------M'Bami---------------- (Midfield line on tactics page)

----------Uche-----Giggs-----------

-Crusat-----------------------Piatti-

---------------Babel-------------------

My next target is to get a LB to replace Acasiete, and I've got 15.8m to work with- who should I go after?? Aside from that, where should I focus on finding a player to upgrade, and who should I look to go get?

Also, 2 or 3 names per spot would be GREAT. Please note, 15.8m cash atm, and will also be able to offer another player with each deal to lower the price by 1.7m at least.

Thanks![/quote']

I think u should get Vermaelen,He's 91 ,he can play cb as well,and hel surely rise to 92

Ok, well done. Then it is probably best to keep 4-2-2-2 for now as you are winning. If you go on a bad run of games then maybe change to 3-5-2 and see how that goes. Well done anyway.

------------- BETO -------------

---- Fernandez - Ruiz - Rojo -----

-- Reus - Cesar - Gibson - Delph --

I suggest you get a new left midfielder/winger as you only have one good player who's preferred position is winger/left midfielder. Then you can drop Delph to the bench.

Hope that helps.
