How to implement custom tactics.

To make or update tactics or view what one each club team uses, just start a single player match on the main Fifa menu you get when the game loads. Once you've chosen team go into team management. One of those options that appears is Custom tactics. Here you can make them and save them. To assign them to your dpad, go to quick tactics and you can assign up to 4 of your saved ones to replace the Possession, Counter Attack, and other two preset ones you have.

This is useful reading about custom tactics on the darkside:
http://forum.ea.com/uk/posts/list/2659213.page


Go to the Customize tab in the main menu > Edit Teams > Team Management
Choose the team you want (any)
There you will find custom tactics, and you can edit the numbers to your liking.
After you are satisfied with your custom tactic, save it to an empty slot.


Assigning the custom tactic

Go back to team management screen and then select Quick Tactics.
Select an arrow to assign your custom tactic to, for example ↓, and select the custom tactic you just created.
After you selected it, you will see your custom tactic appear next to the ↓ arrow.

Using the custom tactic

After assigning the custom tactic, you're ready to use it in a game!
During the game press down on the D-pad, bringing up 4 options for your custom tactics.
We just assigned our Custom Tactic to the ↓ arrow, so we press ↓ on the D-pad one more time to select the custom tactic. You will see it being Highlighted and you're ready to go!

Custom Tactics from TWS

good to hear TWS

will you share your custom tactics with us?  ;)

Speed - 34
Passing - 23
Positioning - Free Form

Chance Creation

Passing - 85
Crossing - 40
Shooting - 60
Positioning - Free Form

Defence

Pressure - 15
Aggression - 55
Team Width - 50

Think this why I'm loving all these Italian CM's. They seem perfect with it. IF Aquilani, Montolivio, IF Cigarini, Marchisio, and the foreign Serie A CM's, Borja Valero and Pizarro. Looking at IF Conti next and also IF Borja Valero, if he gets cheaper when the upgrades come. They all have great passing and good work rates for the 433(4) apart from Valero maybe,and can set any of the more advaced players loose in an instant. They can also hit great long shots.
Has anyone used IF Conti? Seems like a great deep playmaker and will be decent hopefully in 433(5) which I want to attempt at some point. Would probably suit Borja Valero a bit better as well in 433(5) as one of the CM's in that.
Do we have a tactics, work rates and formation thread to get deep into this sort of thing?

Has anyone else had any luck, or felt their play, especially attack wise because we know how random the defensive AI can be, has improved using custom tactics?
I have never ever touched them until around Christmas, and the difference is huge when you get a tactic that suits you. I really would recommend persevering with them and keep tweaking one until you get it right.
Also I think getting good work rates in the right positions is very important. A H/M CM can be immense in one formation but a liability in another.

As you know TW, I have tried them, but only for a couple of games, with the Turtle Tourney sides.  Didn't have much luck.

I wonder if the formation makes a big difference also.

As always with FUT, there are so many variables it's sometimes hard to know which one is / how many are broken..

I will persevere.

You have been using 433 predominantly with these customisations haven't you?

Have used it to best effect with 433(4), and 442(2). Have only used 4312 in the tournament but that works quite well it seems. Also did well for a bit with 4411 and 451, but they're not too far removed from 433(4).
What works well for me may not work for someone else though.
Another variable is that I play on the co op camera at maximum height and fully zoomed out so I can see a large amount of the pitch and can see off the ball movement and positioning of mine and my opponents players. Some people dislike this but I got used to it playing pro clubs a lot last year. Helps with switching play to the opposite wing which is especially useful against manic high pressure. You can also plan 3 passes ahead once you are comfortable with it and control the match better. You can pull defenders out of position easily when you can see all your attacking players.

Custom tactics does not work unless you put it on full on pressure extreme right or to the extreme left.
Everything in between is just a placebo effect.

It helps for passing so much having the camera zoomed out. More than you can possibly imagine. And if you can control possession better, they have less opportunities to spam lob through balls at you.

Another big tip I will give that seems to work against more than half of the people you play. I touched on this a couple of weeks ago somewhere.
When you get an attacking throw in, anywhere in line with their penalty area and works even deeper. Press L1 or L2 (can't remember which) to take control of one of your players. Run him past the defensive line and near to the touchline. A lot of players will just leave you in masses of space because they don't realise that you can't be off side from a throw in. If they let you do it, you have a fantastic crossing or layoff opportunity and I have got a number of goals this way.
Pressing the L1 or L2 button (can't remember) from throw ins to move you players locks the thrower onto that player, so if you don't throw it to him press the L? button again and it will lock off him. If you don't it will still throw the ball to him even if you point the stick in the complete opposite direction.

So 15 has been out a week now and we all seem to be adapting to some extent. But are there any tips we can share for the new game? The 4 new corner routines? The ability to control a player on set pieces? Custom tactics? Defending?
Maybe we can all pool together things, however small, and help each others game?

good idea, well running is something you should avoid. Giving you extra stamina at the end of the match

also noticed that IF's don't have 99 stamina anymore..

Well, we've probably played the most  :-[

But, the issue we have in sharing ideas, is the co-op delivers a different game.

Off the point - right now, the major challenge is the fact that the guest does not have the 'standard view' at set piece time. Yes - when you are taking a penalty, you have the standard camera view ::)

In game though, the ability to run controlling 2 players is at times a huge advantage. But, in defending attempting to control players can be challenging. The first thing I do is make sure that it's manual selection - not Auto nor Air Balls. Cannot rely on the AI.

Am definitely slowing down the defending though - not easy, as the tendency to 'jump in' is always there. Sometimes the AI or switch to the player means he's out of position already. So, I do my best to take the CB and run straight back. When they striker starts jinking I turn around and try 'read him'. I genuinely feel that facing the player and trying to stop is better than running next to him. So many times the OP striker overruns the defender or gets it back after the attempted tackle.

Have not looked at custom tactics as yet.

We were playing against a moron so the kid used the "park the bus" tactic. Was quite funny going forward (CAM & striker) and the wingers were playing as fullbacks :D.
