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.

8.  T i p s  a n d  T r i c k z
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


- 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 !

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)
