4141 Is pretty damn good...

Post by Bradfleu on Sun Oct 20, 2013 6:32 pm

So some of you may have seen [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] where I was saying that I was having some issues doing well recently in FUT. I took dannyrhinos89's suggestion to try out the 4-1-4-1 formation; and man oh man, I have got to say that it is the best formation I have tried so far. These are the teams I use:







It is such a balanced formation. You can rock possession with the crowded midfield, you can pace it up the wings with your wingers, you can play through balls for days.

I highly recommend reading this guide on the EA forums: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for a little more detail on the formation.

Is it just me or do you get nearly no traffic on the wings? Maybe it's just my playstyle or my team(http://www.futhead.com/14/squads/1489563/) but even my CBs have more ball contact than my LM/RM.

Might have to use the bottom squad but replace Cavani with Falcao and the RM with IF Rodriguez

Thanks for the advice guys. My record at the moment is 50-7-19 but I haven't been able to find THAT formation in which I feel the most comfortable with. I am going to look to use my Bundesliga squad with the 4-1-4-1 and see how it goes.



If anyone has any recommendations on who would play better and in what position that would be helpful.

Replace Robben with any other Bundes RM, maybe Muller, Farfan or if you like it expensive IF Aubameyang. Robben's 2* WF just sucks. You Either have to swap your wingers if you want to cross or cut in with Robben, which gets pretty damn obvious if you do it more then 2 or 3 times.

I actually switched my Bundelsligsnto something like that as well. Here are my thoughts:

Schweinsteiger works well as CDM, use him there and get IF Kroos or Gotze in his spot. As much as I love Lahm IRL, I much prefer Piszczeck in game. Gundogan is a monster in this formation! And like said above, you need a new RM. I prefer Muller in this formation, or, if you want to bomb down the wings, the Blaszcakowski works fine.

Thanks for the advice guys, going to try Schweinsteiger at CDM and get Gotze. Replaced Lahm at RB last night, even though I also love him IRL, just feel Piszczek is better in-game.

I did an experiment last night as well, I switched my formation to a 433 (5) at half time and felt that it is very similar to the 4141, just more attacking. So if you are ever looking for a goal late on or just feel like going gung-ho try it out. I would always start with the 4141 formation though, just to steady the game and then suprise your opponent with the change in formation.



P.S. Robben and Reus really came alive when I chose this formation as they were more of an attacking threat and with their quality I was ripping through the oppositions defence and scoring for fun.

I might have to try it.

4231 is my favoured formation with the widemen.

However boredom is kicking in with this formation.

With this formation I felt that I had to depend on the wide men too often for crosses than actually playing my usual passing counter attacking game.

Try out the 4141 to start off with and as I said deploy the 433 (5) at some point point during the game and you will actually see a big difference, in your game play and how many avenues you have to score goals.

The more goals you score the more enjoyable the game is Smile
