    6.  F o r m a t i o n z  -----------------------------------------------
    ------------------------
    
    4 - 5 - 1
    ---------
    +    : Great defence role, great mid-field.
    -    : Really bad when it's your turn to attack. you must have a really      
           good & high skilled player to combine with this formation.
    Tips : Maximize your midfielder, either DH OH LH or RH.
           Be patient & find the right time to counter attack.
    
    
    4 - 4 - 2
    ---------
    +    : The most balanced formation. Commonly used.
    -    : The Sideback (SB) is not that good for defending, can't support
           the Centerback (CB).
    Tips : Edit all your defender to behind, include SB. Put all of 'em
           into your penalty area (on the screen) or you can use 1-3 
           defender formation. (edit 2 CBs into a stright horizontal line
           set the most behind as a sweeper) but beware of attack from 
           opponent's winger.
    
    
    4 - 3 - 3
    ---------
    +    : Balanced defense & offence role. Great for attacking role.
    -    : Since it's harder to score by heading (not like WE 4) it's 
           rather difficult to cross the ball. Weakness point is on the 
           midfield area which only has 3 midfielder.
    Tips : same as 4-4-2 formation, use 1-3 defender formation. make the 
           good use of your 2 winger. try to have a good crossing.
    
    
    3 - 6 - 1
    ---------
    +    : Great midfield area. Promising ! depends on how good you've 
           edited your player.
    -    : Weak against counterattack, the 3 defender can't support a good
           defense. must be patient sometimes.
    Tips : make a good use of your OH. Edit their position 'till u've found
           it better.
    
    
    3 - 5 - 2
    ---------
    +    : Great midfield area, easy to attack cause it's like your player
           are everywhere.
    -    : Weak against counter attack especially wing area. 
    Tips : Edit your player position. Use a good 1-2 attack. Be creative.
    
    
    3 - 4 - 3
    ---------
    +    : Great attacking role, the balanced midfielder can sometimes help
           to defend.
    -    : Weak against counter attack & wing attack.
    Tips : Make a good use of your winger. Set the defender to behind 
           (either in awareness or position edit)
    
    
    5 - 4 - 1
    ---------
    +    : Best defense role, balanced midfield area.
    -    : Lack of offence role. It's really hard to attack unless you
           must be patient (very patient!) 
    Tips : This formation isn't recommended to use. only use when you 
           already win & want to keep the score difference.
    
    
    5 - 3 - 2
    ---------
    +    : Best defense role. more balanced than 5-4-1 formation.
    -    : Difficult to attack, must be patient. Too depends on counter
           attack.
    Tips : PATIENT ! i saw some expert int this game use this formation.
           the counter attack & 1-2 play is KILLING ! so,
           make a good use of it.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    - 1-2 . . 1-2 and 1-2 ! the MOST great way to score in this game !
      make it short ! not a long 1-2 pass.
    
    - EDIT your player POSITION ! it's a must ! sometimes edited formation
      has a better effect to the teamplay.
    
    - Put your attention on STRATEGY. Practice to make a good use of it.
      try to find the rite settings depends on your attacking type.
    
    - Make a benefit from deadball situation (free kick or corner kick)
      
    - For Free Kick, above the 30 m, try to shoot directly 'bout 75 or 80 %  
      of your power bar or sometimes while holding up on your D-pad. make  
      sure to aim the direction. below the 30 m, try to shoot directly 
      about 60 or 75 % of your power bar. when it comes near the penalty 
      kick area, hold down on D-pad, shoot about 40 or 50 % of your power
      bar. practice makes it well. and please select the best free kick 
      taker in your team. (AIM the DIRECTION !)
    
    - For Long Freekick select player who has :
      Shoot Power    :  min 18
      Shoot Accuracy :  min 17
      Curve          :  min 17 (not really important though)
      Recommended    :  R.Carlos (Brazil), Batistuta (Argentina), Davids
                        (Netherlands), Beckham (England)
    
      For Short Freekick,
      Shoot Power    :  min 16
      Shoot Accuracy :  min 17
      Curve          :  min 16
      Recommended    :  Del Piero (Italy), Zidane (France), Rui Costa 
                        (Portugal), Beckham (England), Rivaldo (Brazil)
    
    - For Corner kick, select the kicktaker with Passing : min 17.
      you can choose to cross it directly or pass to the nearest player 1st
      then have a crossing pass. the ideal powerbar should be at 55 - 75 %.
      Tips : try to find out about corner with curving pass ! it rocks !
             it's like passing with banana kick. the power should be at
             50 - 60 % of your powerbar.
    
    - To AVOID being scored by 1-2 there are some tips,
      Don't MARK a player who try to have a 1-2 pass, instead of it use
      Square button to have nearest player controlled by computer to chase
      than wait the 1-2 ball at behind.
    
    - Play with MANUAL cursor change to block the 1-2 pass. (it's really
      difficult though) don't use AUTO. some great WE2000-U23 player
      i knew use MANUAL cursor change. Practice makes Best !
    
    more to come . . .

    Maybe it's too late for writing this Faqs, because by now Winning Eleven 
    5 has already out. I've already bought the game and I'll try to write 
    the Faqs soon eventhough there's already one @ gamefaqs.com.
    
    Well, my favourite team in WE2000-U23 is obviously Brazil, sometimes i 
    like to play with Ukraine or France too.  When i play using Brazil, i 
    use 3-5-2 B formation with starting line up :
    Goalkeeper  : Dida
    Center Back : Aldair, Zago, Cacapa/Evanilson
    Def Half    : Emerson, Conceicao/Cafu
    Wing        : Denilson, Cafu/Elber
    Off Half    : Rivaldo
    Center Fwd  : R.Carlos & Ronaldo
    I edit all the centerback to move back near the goalkeeper, than move 
    the DH to the back too, set Aldair as sweeper & give him a covering 
    role, after that i set the awareness for CB & DH to behind and the other 
    to forward.
    Set the FK long to R.Carlos, short to Rivaldo
            Ck left to R.Carlos, right to Cafu
            PK to Ronaldo
    Strategy    : CB Overlap, Counter Attack, Center Attack, Zone Press.
    So, that's it ! the mid-field is very . . very strong, but defending 
    maybe is the biggest problem (especially when against opponent who has 
    great wing attack). the 2 striker are very fast & have strong shoot, so 
    i often use 1-2 pass to score, especially using R.Carlos.
    You can attack from second line too, using either Rivaldo, Denilson or 
    Cafu. How about yours ? tell me ! (ahunkz@yahoo.com)
