You are only allowed one final custom formation with player roles and team instructions.

In the upcoming pre-season friendlies, you are allowed to use 2 different custom formations for your 2 pre-season friendlies (1 per match), however you are only allowed to have one once the season starts. Your custom formation can be changed half-way through the season (I will let you know when the time comes).

Now onto how this is going to work. Basically, I want you to give me a template of what your custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles looks like, kinda map it out for me, either in text form, or a picture of some sort, or if you have the game, make the formation in the game and take a screenshot. Now, just because you've given me a custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles doesn't mean it's confirmed as the one you've given me might not be viable in the game. Every custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles you give me, I will try to make it in the game as close as possible, afterwhich I will take a screenshot and post it for your viewing. Then it's up to you if you're happy with it or not. You are NOT allowed to use a custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles for matches if it's not been confirmed by myself. If you are to use 2 different custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles for the friendlies, you'll need to get both of them confirmed by me also before you submit your teams. Of course, you don't have to use either of the custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles you've tested in your two friendlies, you can use a completely different one as your final custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles if you wish. If you post a screenshot of the custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles from the game itself, then consider the it automatically confirmed as it's obviously viable.

Of course, you don't have to use custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles at all.

If you created a custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles last season and would just like to continue using that one, let me know in this thread also. Also, if you wish, you can add player roles/team roles to the standard formations also, like 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 in this thread, but like everything else, these can't be changed once you've done them.

Also, you are not allowed to change player roles and team roles in every match. The player roles and team roles you assign with your final custom formation are the same roles that will be attached with that same formation every time.


With regards to player roles, you can have one player role for the following positions in your formation:

Goalkeer: Defend (default)
Sweeper: Defend, Support, Attack
Central Defender: Defend, Stopper, Cover
Full Back/Wing Back: Defend, Support, Attack
Central Defensive Midfielder: Defend, Support
Central Midfielder: Defend, Support, Attack
Central Attacking Midfielder: Support, Attack
Winger: Defend, Support, Attack
Striker: Support, Attack


With regards to team roles, here's what you have available to choose from. You're only allowed to choose one option for different team instruction:

Team Mentality: Contain, Defensive, Counter, Standard, Control, Attacking, Overload
Passing Style: Short, Mixed, More Direct
Closing Down: Press More, Mixed, Stand-Off More
Tacking: More Aggressive, Mixed, More Cautious
Marking: Zonal Marking, Mixed, Man Marking
Crossing: Float Crosses, Mixed, Drilled Crosses
Player Roaming: Stick to Position, Mixed, More Roaming
Defensive Line: Deep, Normal, Push Up
Width: Narrow, Normal, Wide
Tempo: Quick, Normal, Slow
Time Wasting: Rarely, Sometimes, Often
Focus Passing: Mixed, Down both flanks, down right flank, down left flank, through the middle
Counter Attack: Yes, No
Play Offside Trap: Yes, No

Primary Playmaker: Select the position of who the primary player maker will be
Primary Target Man: Select the position of who the primary target man will be
Target Man Supply: Mixed, To Feet, To Head, Run On To Ball


The deadline for your ONE FINAL custom formation/tactics/player roles/team roles is Monday 16th July, 1 pm GMT.

In a 4-2-3-1 Formation, you can have your two attacjing players on the flanks as inside forwards.
 
you can create your custom formation with tactics and then i will set it for your team.
 
iBad their isn't a formation for 4-2-3-1

Thats going to be probably the most used by everyone, is there anyway we can add that to the formations thread?
 
Ibad, can you add the inside forwards roles so I can get my tactics in? :)

if you know their roles then tell me with your custom tactics and i will add it. If not then its not that important then.

and yes it is there in the formation thread.
 
Here are my 2 formations for now, one of which I will confirm after both friendlies (probably evident which one I will confirm). This is exactly how it should be, all the team details on the left and don't miss out the playmakers/target man info at the bottom. Also can player types and mentality you see e.g. for my Right Centre Midfielder it's BWM (D).

Is every team meant to do this... if so how do we see all the options in the drop down boxes ect :/
 
Unfortunately I have problems wth running the editor and have my FM in Norwegian so I cant post a pic of the formation and strategies I want Ibad.

Is it ok if I just post the information here?

You don't have to do this. It's optional.

All the options in the drop down boxes are listed in the opening post.

Does anybody read around here?

Yep, you don't have to post a screenshot, it's just that posting a screenshot is easier. Posting the information is fine.
 
I don't have FM so looks like I will be going the traditional route and drawing formations (did this on a daily basis during middle and high school :yk )
 
Just downloaded fm12 :) (is this the one you are using) will get used to it and then try and post my team through screenshots :p
 
Just a reminder: No illegal activity or links to anything illegal on this forum. Thanks.
 
and you guys don't need to post a screenshot if you can't. just use the first post info to create your formation.
 
Here is my preferred formation:



It is a attacking but hey I'm a risk taker :misbah
 
Edit....

I`ll Post a bigger and better screenshot later :))

I want to use the same formation PB has used above but i want the 2 wide men of the attacking midfielders to be slightly more wider, so proper wingers is what i mean. Is it possible ??
 
How do I take a screenshot... I am trying to printscreen from my keyboard but it is coming up with just an image of my desktop :s

Thanks for pointing it out, although this is more for ibad's attention. He's surely seen it now though after you've mentioned it.

cheers guys, let me know if anything missing
 
SLightly confused once we choose a formation are we stuck with it for every match or can we change it every time there is a new match

Also Rizzy says in the friendly's thread that we can use 2 different formations, does that mean in the match thread we post our formation?
 
Ibad

The Advanced Playmakers role is Attack and not Support!

Mistake by myself there.

ok noticed.

you can create two custom formations now and you can use both in friendlies for testing purpose. But before closing of this thread you will have to confirm only one custom formation for your team for the season.

You can use any other formation in the formation thread and will also be able to use one custom formation with them throughout the season.
