Re: Counter formations Updated Version!!!: In my experience at managing and also general comprehension of tactics, I think that: To counter 4-4-2, I would use 3-4-2-1 with diagonal arrows on player

In this thread I will tell you which formations counter which. This is a simple, down to earth thread, easy for everyone to use. Enjoy

Re: Counter formations Well the 4-2-3-1 formation may be very strong, but one thing a team needs is good full backs to make it strong. Worse if the person uses counter attacks, because it leaves it v

Re: Riferimento: Re: Counter formations

use arampage's 5-4-1 with arrows pointing forward on your fullbacks/wingbacks

use:

HARD' date=' ATTACKING, SHORT/MIXED, MIXED, FAST, ALL OVER, COUNTER-ATTACK, MEN BENHIND BALL, TARGET MAN (your CF or Fwd)[/quote']

Thanks for that, i've only lost 2 games all season but it's goal diff that is letting me down.

I need to play Neymar though, on lvl 4 concern, so he would be my front man and not Villa.

It's not affected my team avg though.

Will let you know how i get on.

Re: Counter formations

541 still works for me :/ did you have backward arrows on your fullbacks? I think you need to have them for it to work :)

Impressive:D It Worked' date=' I'd Won 3-1

to counter a 4-1-3-2, do you think it's better a 4231,451,352,442 or 4222?

thanks a lot;)

Don't Even Use 4231 Or you Will Be Trashed :D I Suggest 451 To Use, Don't Know About 4222 & 352

Re: Counter formations

A new interesting formation against 433:

Nice win there-you should probably use tiny pic as your uploader-not seeing your file as a .jpeg/bmap or .png extension so most likely wont show as an image.

had a couple wins with 352 over 433/442 but nothing spectacular enough to share.

Re: Counter formations

Okay. Desperately need help here on countering 4-2-4 formation. I've tried 4-5-1' date=' 4-3-2-1, 4-3-3 and 3-5-2. All failed miserably. :(

I have joined 3 different setup just to see if anyone can really beat the 4-2-4. But rarely see one.

Any ideas fellas? :)[/quote']

Did beat one a while back-but had superior ratings (90 to 88) using 4231 , the score was 3-1 I think-but that was before the new engine kicked in.

I need to play in more customs I figure-need to experiment a bit more with different formations..:(

Just remembered also lost against 4222, 2-1 against evenly matched side again before the new engine..while playing 424 :(

Cool- might want to run a friendly with a similar team and let them play 424 /look at their match schedule and see if they lost or were held to a draw and upgrade tactics of their opponents/ match their formation/tactics if you have a better side.

Re: Respuesta: Re: Respuesta: Counter formations

Yes I would use 4-4-2 diamond against a 4-3-3 wingers :)

I'm wondering about other possible counters to 4-3-3- wingers:

4-2-3-1

4-2-2-2

Both of them would appear to be positionally superior.

4v3 on D

4v3 or 5v3 in Mid

takes advantage of the huge gaps between the fullbacks and the wingers

Any feedback?

Re: Counter formations

Do you recall what your opponent's tactics were? I'm thinking of using a 4-2-3-1 vs a 4-3-3 wingers and counterattacking down the flanks.

Here's a result where 4-3-3 wingers beat 4-2-2-2 by score of 3-1. The loser was much higher rated' date=' but I don't know if they did something bozo like leave in unconditioned players- the manager is more or less a set-it-and-forget-it type.[img']http://www.berdu.com/images/433w-vs-4221.png[/img]

Riferimento: Counter formations

This evening i'll play a very important match, this is the situation:

My opponents generally use 4-3-3 Wingers or 3-5-2 but there is a possibility he will use 5-4-1...

He'll plays with an average strenght of 90 and his best players are not at the best conditions:

Ashley C. (78%)

Terry (73%)

Torres (88%)

I'm at home, in the last 8 games I have never conceded a goal and in the last 9 matches I never lost.

My average is about 90,5, all my players are at 100%.

I'm thinking about 4-2-3-1 or 3-5-2...what do you think about it?

I played 3-5-2 formation I have arrows on the wings and on the defensive midfielder facing the center back.

I won 3-1 and have by far the weakest team. It was the first game of the season so we both had the same level of fitness. :)
