What formation do you use in WE9?

Also like the individual attack/defend arrows.

Post some screenshots if possible.

Too soon to post any decisive formation :).

My usual 442 from WE7 and 8 seems inefective although I only tried it in the first games, when I was yet very rusty. On the other hand 433 seems to have gained the importance it had in the past, in the first PS2 versions and thrughout PSX versions.

But I haven't reached a decision. I think this WE adds even more the importance of picking the right formation for the team you have, something that started in the past but seems now even more evident.

I just use the default formation for Manchester United. Backward arrows for goalkeeper, defenders and defensive midfielder. The rest have forward arrows. Everyone with high defense. Can't be bothered making my own formation as I just think the default one should suit the team the most. :lol:

Inter's formation sucking is a MAJOR improvement... that 422 "square" was veeeeery efficient last year, with the 2 strikers continuously getting free space and clear passes from the OMFs.. now it all feels a bit more stuck. I used that tactic a lot but I'm happy to see it less effective, it's a good change.

the 4-4-2a formation is quite a good one. the midfield kinda looks like an arrow

another good one is Italy's default formation

Ive noticed that the flat formations work alot better on this version too. e.g Englands

i use this team with a 4-3-3.
Valdes in goal.
Belletti, Puyol, Marquez, and Gio.
Xavi, v.Bommel, and Deco.
Guily, Eto'o, and Ronaldinho.
it's a good team (especially with updated stats/growth curves etc :lol: ) but i'm hoping to get Henry for the right wing and Cicinho for right back.

Do you add your own arrows? And what about defence levels?
the arrows a bit, but i have no real tactics set out on the formation settings. i just try to attack and keep possession as much as possible.

Yeah thats what i do, and then wait for an opening,
i put my attackers and midfield apart from the dmc on the lowest defence arrow. the back 3 and dmc on higest setting. then for attacking arrows i have the wingers going going forward and diagnal towards the wing. then the strikers and amc going forward

I use a 4-4-2 diamond formation with Real Madrid.

I have to say that I am still experimencing with my formation so it isn't the final one:

-------------------Casillas--------------
---Diogo---Arbeloa---Woodgate---Carlos
-----------------Gravesen---------------
------Beckham-----------Zidane-------
-------------------Guti------------------
-------------Ronaldo--------------------
----------------------Raul---------------

When I substitue I rotate a bit with Raul, Ronaldo, Guti, Zidane, Robinho and Baptista.

I'm using arrows too, so when Diogo runs upward the field, Arbeloa goes to fill out the center midfield AND the Right Back. When R. Carlos runs up, Gravesen goes down to play a Left Back.

The next thing I have to look into is the Man Marking and who's going to start in or going to sit on the bench. I have to test all the new players like, Arbeloa, Diego Lopez, Javia Garcia and so on.

But my formation is still a work-in-progress.
