This got posted on the dark side about custom tactics earlier. Was a bit of discussion on them recently so might be useful:

That was actually a good read @TWS001.

A few things I took from it:
Build up play - speed - always been low, but can understand that this can be increased, base on comfort/knowledge of formation, players (incl. quality).
Build up play - positioning - interesting that this is in 'own half only'. I do like the creativity aspect, but may switch to 'organised' especially when conceding more goals. Makes a little sense why Smolnikov likes to play ... well, everywhere.
Chance creation - passing - now this is an interesting one. Currently it's at 40, but this is probably going to need adjustment, if the opponent is abusing with high pressure. Might be better for passer #1 to move around rather than staying in position and getting caught out, especially if said HP-abuser reads those passes well.
Chance creation - shooting - I think I'll be pushing this up a little too. Found his statement quite funny actually - "With keepers having line reflexes of a **** **** addict ... So true at times!

I've been playing different tactics on 16 to the ones that served me well on 15.
Last year I was playing the possession default tactic but with the defensive settings adjusted to 20 pressure, 55 aggression and 50 width. That was useful against the lob through balls but at times I was vulnerable to the sweetspot longshots you would face. Started with the same set up on 16 but didn't last long.
With lobs massively weakened this year, I soon bumped up pressure to 30. I also altered a few other bits that coincided with my upturn in form of late.
Have been playing with build up speed on 65 instead of 20 previously, but keeping passing on 20. Had that on free form.
For chance creation, I also changed Passing to 65, but kept Crossing and Shooting on 25. Also had this on free form.
This has been extremely successful for me and has won me a load of cups in a short space of time for my standards.
Since the latest patch, I just haven't felt in control of matches. There are only small changes but these small changes seem to have really had a negative effect on my game. Been struggling in the past week.
Had a think about things. One thing that I have noticed is that my possession in matches is a lot less than it used to be. In seasons I think it has dropped down from mid 50's to just 50%. After having a bit of a mare in the dark side cup earlier (creating chances at will, but low possession and bad defending) and then the first couple of online matches not going well, I decided to change things.

Have switched back to 20 speed, 20 passing in my build up play, and have put it onto organised. Straight away I've boosted my possession percentage stat in the few games I played. Also trying to concentrate on taking it into the oppo half slower again like I used to. I've kept the chance creation on Passing 65 Crossing and Shooting 25, free form. Have also kept the same defensive set up. Hopefully keeping build up on organised may help keep my defensive shape.
Final result of the night, I played a one half rage quit. Had 61% of possession and was in total control. Picked my passes again and it worked a treat.

It is interesting stuff. Never used custom tactics until 14, and they definitely do change things. Will see how things go with my altered set up.

Good one mate. I need to tweak some more still and play more games.
