How to Choose the Right FIFA 14 Ultimate Team Formation for your Club

 

Before even starting to sign players, you should start by setting the formation that will implement on your squad. If you leave the decision for later, you will not equip your squad with players who really need and you will be penalized in the individual and squad chemistry. You can solve the problem by buying new players and, in certain cases, positioning cards but the investment will be very high.

 

There is not a better formation than other. All of them have strong and weak points. You should decide which one is better to you.

The most common question is: How do I decide the formation that I’ll use ?

There is no one exact answer, but you should consider a few factors:

 

  • What is your play style ?
  • Do you often attack by the wings ? Do you enjoy possession ? Do you have a patient style ? Do you often play in counter-attack ?

  • With which formation you are most familiar and which ones you like most ?
  • There is any formation that let’s you more comfortable ? Did you have better results with some formation ?

  • Into which formations the players that you think are essential fit ?
  • The attributes and skills of your essential players can be better used in some of the formations?

  • What are the formations best suited to the goals you set for your FUT 14 clubs?
  • Do you want to try to win all the matches even taking risks or do you will be happy even not winning all the matches ?

  1. As promised, we have closed the comments to this article when we reached the 500 comments. It is more than enough to explain everything you need to know about it. It makes no sense to have so many comments since nobody will read all of them and most was asking the same questions. Thank you.

  2. Hey Rodrigo!

    I’m having difficulty picking my formation that would suit my play style the best. Apparently, I do well with 2 strikers and I need a very good defence. I’m a sort of a player who doesn’t keep possession all that much and attack more, which furthermore reinstates the reason I need a solid defence. Please help me out here!

  3. Hey man, love the site. Awesome work. The Bpl guide was full so I’m posting here. Could you please rank vertonghen,Kaboul,Luiz in order of preference with reasons? I play a 41212. Thanks a lot.

    • Hi. Thank you.
      It depends of many factors as your play style, his team mate, formation, etc…
      My favourite is Luiz, then Kaboul and then Vertonghen. But if you play with Kompany, Luiz may not be the right player due to his work rates.
      We have explained this better on the guide and on the comments. That’s why they are closed.

  4. Rodrigo, very informative articles here buddy. I like your insight & knowledge. I am playing with a bundesliga squad…which happens to be your exact squad 🙂 in your bundesliga squad guide unlimited budget…I am not patient and love attacking straight forward taking turns with Ribery & robben on the wings..I have been switching between the 4-3-3 (3), 4-3-3(4) & 4-4-2..is there any other formation you suggest to utilize my style & wings more??

  5. Hi,

    I have about 750k coins and like playing the 4-2-3-1 formation. What league would you recommend?

    Thanks
    Ben

  6. Hi Rodrigo,

    can i use custom formation (not tactics) in Ultimate team? for example, the formation i did for Seasons(not FUT) it’s not listed as a custom formation when i am choosing the formations for my U Team..
    thank you!

  7. Players: Ronaldo Pele Messi Maradonna Best Bale Zidane Beckenbauer

    not fifa another game do suggest the best formation…

    • Hi.
      In my opinion, you should try Navas and Kompany. 30k should be enough if you sell the players you have right now. Also check if RVP is a good player for you. If he is not, try another one. He is very expensive and you could improve your team with his coins.
      Regards
