I think you should use 3-5-2

Neuer

Boateng - Martinez - Chiellini

-Strootman-

Gotze - Kroos - Mata - Asamoah

Suarez - Aguero

Tackling Style : HARD

Mentality : ATTACKING

Pressing Style : MIXED

Attacking Style : DOWN BOTH FLANKS

TEMPO : FAST

Pressing : OWN HALF

Tight Marking

Use PlayMaker

Use Target Man

Play Offside Trap

Men behind ball

Play Maker: Mata , Captain: Chiellini , Penalty taker:Aguero , Free Kicks : Mata/Suarez , Corner Taker : Mata , Target Man : Aguero/Suarez

I use this

Good Luck !

I have a pretty decent outfit for a D3 team, I decided last season that I would attack and finished 1th :rolleyes:

Just wondering should I go all defensive 3-5-1 and rely on Marchisio/Jovatic/El Shaawary to get me promoted?

Or should I consider other formations?

Re: Tactics Help Thread

Hi guys, I need help with setting my tactic.

The team that I built in last years is quite strong, but still I cannot achieve anything in my league.

These are my best players:

GK: Courtois 91, Szczęsny 90

DEF: Chiellini 94, Hummels 93, Martinez 92, Piszczek 92, Rafael 91

CM:Vidal 93, Hazard 93, Gotze 93, Oscar 92, Marchisio 92

Wing: Bale 94, Reus 93, Mata 93, Neymar 93

ATT: Messi 99, Lewandowski 94

Any idea how I should play?

Also, as you can see side defenders and GK are my weak spots. The problem is that the best GKs and side defs are already 'unavailable' as they play in human teams. Any advices on who should I sign that can reach 92+ in future on those position?

Re: Tactics Help Thread

Anyone out there want to have a shot at what I'm doing wrong??? Consistantly loosing D3 games even though my team is probably the stand out team in the division' date=' player for player that is...

So far, played 3, lost 2, 1 draw....

I must be doing something wrong???

Plz help :confused:[/quote']

I have the same problem. I can't seem to win. I started playing again after 3 years or so. Back then my average was 2.7 points per game. Meaning, I won almost every game.

I have 3 teams right now. Pretty strong teams, mostly focused on youth. I have won about 2 matches and the other games ended in a draw or I lost. Mostly lost. Can someone explain this?? :confused:

I have played various strategies. I looked at my opponents last match. If they lost against an unmanaged team which was weaker than mine, I used the same tactics as that unmanaged team and I still lost :confused::confused::confused:

What is going on?

Just now I played 4-5-1, very defensive against 94 rated managed Real Madrid. That manager has not been online in a few days and all his starters had <75% health, ALL my players started 100% fresh. I still lost 1-2 :confused:

Really could use some help! I'm losing to both managed and unmanaged sides constantly. I tried different formations. Defensive, regular, attack mode. And every time I go and check the score I'm like W-T-F

If you have a full squad with only new players you just added to your team, does that influence the game?? I think not.

HELP PLEASE!

Re: Tactics Help Thread

I usually play the same formation with all my teams. But usually this formation will have a long period of getting me decent results, then all of a sudden it doesn't work in any setup.

I'm looking to use a new formation, if anyone can suggest one they are using in multiple setups and working right now.

The formation I was using was 4-3-3 wingers.

Instructions included please.

Here are my better players:

Buffon

----------

Alba

Hummels

Bonucci

Dante

Varane

-------------

Isco

Mata

Hazard

Reus

Oscar

Neymar

Vidal

----------------

Ibra

Negredo

Balotelli

Hey, so I'm new to this game and I'm in a league with 12 other friends so losing is almost unbearable :P

Song - Matuidi

Farfan - Rodriguez - Lavezzi

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 an extra player to cover a position or an extra defender/midfielder as you will need an extra spare if your squad does not have them available.

I have taken screenshots of the three formations as I had a wee bit spare time.

THE 4-3-3 WINGERS

Notice I am using Ribery as captain[high rated player] and as playmaker as if using the 433W formation its all about the wings.

433w_zps6f2df8ea.jpg

THE 5-4-1

Notice I use the defensive midfielder as the playmaker and captain as this is a defensive formation and that ties in.

541_zps594d680a.jpg

THE 4-5-1

As this is a modification formation with the arrows I like to use the AMC as the playmaker as he will have the ball a lot, Captain I like to put to a strong winger, this formation works well with a high rated CB & Striker.

Re: Tactics Help Thread

Can someone please explain to me HOW a squad can beat my squad 2-0 when I have higher overall rating but MOST OF ALL my players are all 100% fit and the other squad has players of which NONE, I repeat NONE(!), are over 75% fit. Now after the match, most of those players are around 25-30% health.

SO HOW CAN I LOSE?? :confused:

Mind you I also changed styles in the game and used subs, the other team did not. I had more shots on goal also.

With better overall rating and with most players of the other squad NOT MATCH FIT, I should not be able to loose.. no matter what tactic I deploy! :mad::mad::mad:

Can someone give a reasonable explanation?

Going to try something new....

Whoever does not get over a 6 rating for the previous game is getting dropped....

Worth a shot since nothing else works!!! It's funny because for friendlies and in connect GW games I'm doing REALLY well, punching above my weight no problem

Have you tried changing tactics? You said before that, in your opinion, your tactics are correct but maybe the match engine does not agree with your opinion?

I would try a complete new strategy by looking at your recent defeats and see if there is a pattern developing. If you are in a human filled league then try and establish what is working for the other managers. SM says that the match engine looks at several different parameters to decide the result. Therefore just having higher rated players or match fit players might not be enough to win games in your league.

If you are playing against mainly unmanaged sides then I believe that the "random" factor is greatly increased to give those sides a fair chance and to keep the GW challenging. As you know, building a good squad in an unmanaged league is kids play and so SM has to do something to keep it interesting.

In the particular game world I'm referring to its 95% managed with 80 clubs total so unmanaged teams are not the issue...

The problem is that I've tried most tactics at this stage, I think its more of a case of picking a formation now and sticking with it.... I certainly believe that the game engine needs work, as you said it should not be the case of just having higher rated/fitter players BUT when you have BOTH coupled with your tactical homework done then you should really win more often than not, and it just not happening at the moment.

I'd like to stress once more, I'm not complaining that I have better players and therefore I deserve to walk the division, my issue is that I've spent the time working on tactical setups that make sense in real life with relation to the players I have & the results are just random.... Some of which are bordering on insultingly random :confused:

As I've said before, if this continues it will put people off the game it really will, I've won leagues using various formations and tactics whilst not having the best players in that league so why is it that the same tactics do not seem to work for me when I do have the better players...

I did mention this on the SM facebook and they posted that the game engine is something they are working on, I can only hope that this was the truth and not just a comment to pacify.... :rolleyes:
