All The FUT Formations
Since it launched a couple of years ago, more customisation and a variety of formations have been one of the most requested features that players have asked for to be included into the FIFA 14 Ultimate Team mode. This year, there are a total of nine brand new formations to choose from, and we’ve got them all listed below for you to check out yourself.
4-3-3 (4) Attack
This setup is the most attack orientated out of all the 4 3 3 formations, and it simply swaps one of your CM players to become a CAM and sit just behind the front attacking three.
4-3-3 (3) Defend
This type contains two defensive midfielders protecting the back four, with a standard centre mid sitting slightly in front that’s more suited as a Playmaker type that has that creativity spark.
4-3-3 (5) False
Now this setup is for players who like to rely on a big build CF that possesses amazing strength and aggression to hold the ball up for others around him. It’s a possession type formation that works well if you know the system and know how to play with it.
4-3-3 (2) Holding
This specific variation concentrates on an anchor man in the middle of the pitch who’s job is to break up play and then pass it simple. The middle of the park contains one CDM and two CM either side with two wingers up top supporting the lone striker.
This is literally the most requested, and the most used formation in the whole of FIFA Ultimate Team. There are numerous clubs that have made the switch in real life to use this setup, and it’s actually our personal favourite too. It uses a LM, RM with two central defensive midfielders and one CAM behind the lone striker.
4-5-1 ( 2) Flat Midfield
This is one of the new formations that EA Sports added to this years installment. It’s more of a packed midfield than what the standard 4 5 1 setup uses, you’ll have a striker up the top on his own, but with five midfielders just behind him he’s got plenty of support.
4-4-2 (2) Base Formation
This second option of the classic 4 4 2 formation uses two defensive midfielders instead of the usual CM. Everything else will not be foreign to you as the other positions remain the same.
The 4 1 4 1 setup is suited to gamers who prefer to pack their entire midfield and just have one striker on his own up top. Again, this formation is for players who like the big strong centre forward attacking type ST.
This is quite simply the alternate version to the hugely popular 4-1-2-1-2 formation that so many FIFA players love. It’s another setup where you’ll completely dominate the midfield areas of the pitch and try and score goals on the break when possible.
