What experiences have you guys had with 433 (4) this year? Am messing about making teams on futhead and have a possible 433(4) team. The trouble is the two CM's. They would both be M/M but both small and not particularly great at defending. Would this be defensive suicide? Last year you would get countered constantly, but with the runners this year, this team looks dodgy. With no CDM and the CM's lack of presence and defensive ability, would I just be inviting the usual suspects to be straight in running on the CB's?
Any experiences with this would be appreciated!

tried it, its similar to last year, but you got countered, so WR must be diff for the 2 CMs, one being M/H ...
i do suggest 433 (2) tough with 1 cdm ... that is better this year

Would agree with OT - at least one CDM-type player in there.

Was a favourite formation last year, but did not find much love at the start. So, have avoided it.

Thanks, have built my new 433 (4) team and have changed it from what I had initially because I found a way to change one of the CM's to Fernando from Man City, a M/H, thanks to a sneaky little strong link between Nastasic and Ivanovic. At one stage thought the only option I had in CB was Demichellis!
Haven't been countered too badly, no worse than any other formation. Yet.

I have played with a couple of 433(4) teams and wasn't countered that much. Bit I have also defenisve minded RCM and LCM well at least one.

Good news on the custom tactics side. They've added the ability to edit Instructions on the Squad.

EA actually adding functionality that is worthwhile! :o :o

dont get it, what did they add? wasnt it already there?

update: ok got what you mean now, guess you are mentioning this, from the darkside http://forum.ea.com/uk/posts/list/2972050.page if you ask me sounds promising for most of them.
  • Added players, kits, and badges for the two new MLS expansion teams Orlando City and New York City FC to FIFA Ultimate Team - that is good news actually.
  • Updated FIFA Ultimate Team player item portraits for 18 high-profile players - dont know what that means
  • Added ability to assign Player Instructions via the squad screen in FIFA Ultimate Team - that is also good, so that i wiould not spend time on the match screen and keep oppo waiting
  • Gameplay improvements to defensive positioning and lob through balls - no more kick off glitch?
  • Using the “Compare Price” feature on in-form Players Items now compares the item with other in-form versions instead of the normal version. - very good one, now its easier to search on IFs, get what you want into a concept team, press search in market, then compare, very nice...

All sounds good. But this being EA, you just know that it'll completely break something else. A return to the KSI from last year perhaps?

PS3 even has the latency bar back. I wonder who decided it would be a good idea to remove it in the first place?

Ah ... your comment raises something that happened yesterday. One of the rage quits - we were 2-0 up and just been given a penalty - he dashboarded.

He sent a message  afterwards, stating that he cannot handle the lag any more. There was no animosity towards us. He was in NZ, we had green bars preceding the game & we could feel no lag whatsoever. I mentioned that and he went off on his anti-EA rant.

It highlighted that the connection is not the same for both. In some way I'd assumed this was the case in the past, now it was clear that one person was benefiting.

Yes - it could be that he had a low ping/connection speed due to his broadband, who knows.

connection is a big issue. Bigger than I thought it would have been. Maybe the 'handicap' discussion is fed by this too. The moment your players feel sluggish and passing is off could be a connection thing rather than a real programmed handicap/momentum thing.

okkkkeyyy, first time playing after the patch, definitely game is slower, played a few games to judge, and i can't sprint past defenders, as i did with ease in the past weeks, that is due to 1) game is slowed down 2) the magic dribbling is gone 3) there is quite an amount of clumsiness injected, players falling down, team mates tackling each other (guess they wanted to differentiate higher rated cards as opposed to OP non rare cards, and as i do play with those non rares most of the time, my midfield was on the ground in the last game : )

the passing also slowed down, so my ideal world of good passers but slow players is a bit far away now, the ball barely reaches to your teammate, guess that was an attempt to kill the ping pong. that respect, defending is easier now (although i conceded an KO from aubabiatch). not complaining but game is more of H2H now, a new learning curve for me, adapting will take time

anybody experiencing similar stuff?

dont get it, what did they add? wasnt it already there?

Hey OT. Only played a few games on Thurs night & was busy work-wise so not able to really do much yesterday.

I do agree that it's slower & the one thing I noticed immediately was that the passing was 'weak'. Had to really power things up.

Overall the games were a bit clunky & not the most enjoyable.
