I prefer using a 4-4-2. Have speed up top and with your left and right backs. Have one CM that is more offensive with good passing and one CM that is more defensive with good passing. Hope this helps. --- GT- HLG Marshall
It's all in your play style dude. 4-4-2 is pretty standard and you can use it with just about any team.
Some teams have personell that requires different formations. The 4-3-3 for instance allows more wing play so if you have good wings it might be a better option. It all depends.
I go with the 4-3-1-2 or whatever it is where I have two strikers and a center forward usually, but again, you gotta have the personnel to make that work. In my club career team, I always have an excess of strikers and I like having lots of options on offense. In video game football, It critical especially late in close games to have a lot of focusa on offense.
In UT, I personally never go below 4 defenders. Other players are too good and they'll counter you too fast if you get cute and try to be too aggressive.
4-5-1, 4-4-1-1 and 3-4-1-2 are the best if you know how to pass and dribble since you'll dominate possession and create great scoring chances. If you're bad play 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 and just run the wings and spam crosses in or play 4-1-2-1-2 (obviously on assisted) and do nothing but pingpong pass then spam LB+Y. --- Let's be honest, the cards on the table, Jealousy's a sin, Cain killed Abel, Backstabber, Caesar had Brutus, It's hard to weed 'em out, even Jesus had Judas
3-5-2 is my favorite as long as you have the fast defenders. For me it works even better with CDM's who have a high defensive workrate.
So you need 5-7 atb in order to defend (and they have to be pacy), gb. --- Let's be honest, the cards on the table, Jealousy's a sin, Cain killed Abel, Backstabber, Caesar had Brutus, It's hard to weed 'em out, even Jesus had Judas
