FIFA 18 – BEST FORMATION (LINEUP)

24. December 2017
von Tim Lenzmeier

Yeah, your team may be included in the Ultimate Team mode and have the players with the highest rating, but do you really have the right lineup? Instead of looking for the player’s highest rating, why not find the right lineup for your team and pay good attention to the Workrates or Working rates? If these two important factors are ignored, you may find yourself with a weak defense and lose many goals.

Think of your gameplay – do you like to play through the middle or wrap the wings? Are you a counter-player or just prefer a simple game setup?

Below is a quick glance at the strengths and weaknesses of the respective top formations.

3-5-2 The Secret Weapon

3-5-2

What Do The Players Need?

ST: Pace, Physique

ZOM: dribbling, longshots, pass

RM / LM: Pace, flanks, 4-star skills (if you want to draw in the middle)

ZDM: Physique, Medium / High or Low / High Workrate advantage (but also customizable in the instructions)

IV Outside: Pace, Physique

IV Inside: Physique, Defensive

TW: Any

How Should You Play?

You should always start by playing in the middle, try the outside or try a pass. The most effective are double passes and a simple game structure.

The game is explained clearly here:

 

4-3-1-2 The Superior Power

4-3-1-2

The 4-3-1-2 line-up is my favorite formation in FIFA 18. This formation is very dangerous especially because of the strong center. I really recommend this lineup to anyone who has trouble picking up a variety of scoring opportunities.

  • Extremely strong through the middle
  • Fast combination game
  • Always playing stations
  • No outside players

What Do The Players Need?

ST: Pace, Dribbling, Shot

ZOM: Pace, Dribbling, Shot, 4-Star SKills (If you want to draw in the middle)

ZM: Allrounder

RV / LV Outdoor: Pace, Defensive

IV Inside: Physique, Defensive

TW: Any

4-1-2-1-2 (2) The Alternative

4-1-2-1-2(2)

The 41212 (2) is very similar to the 4-3-1-2 and can be played by anyone. You will have the ability to distribute the ball effectively through ZOM and the ZDM can be relieved in the middle of the 4 chain. Thus, it will be a wise choice if you invest in these players along with the strikers who are responsible for scoring.

  • Extremely strong through the middle
  • Fast combination game
  • No outdoor player

What Do The Players Need?

ST: Pace, shot

ZOM: dribbling, longshots, pass

ZM: Allrounder

ZDM: Physical, defensive

RV / LV: Pace, Defensive

IV: Physical, defensive

TW: Any

How Should You Play?

In this strategy, you should always try to involve the three offensive people (2xST; 1xZOM) with double passports. After that, you can play in the back of the defense and win the game.

4-2-3-1 (2) The Ball Possession Lineup

4-2-3-1(2)

You will be able to take over the Kontrolle on the player using this setup. You have to be fast outside to overcome running duels in getting the ball. Things you need to remember are:

  • Possession
  • Stable midfield
  • Good defense
  • Fast winger
  • Possible Konter

What Do The Players Need?

ST: Pace, shot

ZOM: pass, dribble, shot

RM / LM: Pace, Dribbling,

ZDM: Physique,

RV / LV: Pace,

IV: Physical, defensive

TW: Any

How Should You Play?

You will have an excellent gameplay using this formation whenever you play against your friends.

4-3-2-1 Die Konter-Lastige

4-3-2-1

4-3-2-1 The Counter Player

If you’re more into fast attacks and describe yourself as a counter-player, then this formation will suit you. Advantages include:

  • Solid midfield
  • Good counterplay
  • No ZOM who can direct the game

What Do The Players Need?

ST: Pace, Dribbling, Shot, (passing)

RS, LS: Pace, Shot, Dribbling

ZM: All-rounder

RV, LV: Pace, Defensive

IV: Defensive, physique

TW: Any

How Should You Play?

You will have excellent counter-play with the outside players especially if the opponent has lost the ball on offense. In this play, the central striker can be used effectively as a play setter and then forward to the fast outside players and put the opposing defense under pressure.
