Identical WIBWOB - Different Overview

Post by Cam F »

It is not identical, it is almost identical with players moved about in wib/wob so they don't move out of the 442 or full backs end up as central midfielders or get moved out of of poistion.

This is what happens if you copy the wib & wob from 262 MMJ into my 442.

I know yours isn't identical, but it's still possible to have identical WIBWOB with different Overview. Yours just reminded me of that fact.

Full playtrough tactic

Post by samsami »

Any tactic is only as good as your players are

There's no point in playing a 4-3-3 tactic if you have only one decent striker (with at least good off the ball movement and good finishing)
There's no point in playing a 3-5-2 tactic if you have no decent wingers (with at least good acceleration and good crossing skills)
And so on...

Besides, if a tactic uses arrows they need to fit your players as well.
When the arrow points to a position for which your player has a low score he gets a positional penalty.

So a DL (or a DR) with a forward arrow gets a positional penalty if he has a low score for DML/ML (or DMR/MR)
And an AMC with a forward arrow to FC gets a positional penalty if he has a low score for FC

There's a good discussion on this topic right here: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=2321

Wibwob tactics which offer a challenge

Post by ejonr65 »

Was wondering which wibwobs are not completely overpowering and still make the game challenging.

Wibwob tactics which offer a challenge

Post by Alias47 »

Dude, I'm not being funny but that is a question with an incredibly broad answer. Here on the forum there are hundreds of tactics available and only a select few of them are considered the "top" tactics - which means that the vast majority fall under what you are describing.

Why not experiment, have fun...maybe start by picking a formation and then trying some tactics from the forum that fit your specific formation...

In full play, 3142Looper is a very stable tactic. Also in the never versions off the database

Can share my piece, used it with Avellino, 1st season won serie C of course (only 1 game haven't won), 2nd season won serie B plus Italy Cup, 3rd season Serie A bronze plus won Italy Cup plus won UEFA Cup. But it's wibwob as you could already guess.

424 Tactics

Post by Shiny »

Me again :o

Has anyone ever had any success using a 424 formation? I know Bayern use it on the ODB when the AI is running the team.but I've never seen anyone post a 424 on the forum?

I'm tempted to try it myself as most of the teams I go for will naturally fit the formation but interested to hear of you're experiences.

Thanks

4-3-3 / 4-2-3-1 on April Database

Post by bbrants »

Hi all!

Im currently using Scemokas 4-3-3 HPT and it works very well in full play. Is there any other solid 4-3-3 / 4-2-3-1 tactics that are great in full play? I just want one more solid tactic to use in the slump periods when your preffered tactic is not as effective.

Thank you all for keeping this game alive :D

Iodine does break the game, most user created wibwob tactics do. Check the tactics league for more info: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=3031

strong centralised formations?

Post by a_j217 »

i came across this video on youtube which says that centralised formations with 2 at the back are usually quite strong in the game:



but when trying this out i seem to always concede goals, even if my defenders have high tackling, marking, position, bravery and strength. i tried wibwobbing, having nearly all my players on the goal line when without the ball, and similar having nearly all my players on the opposition goal line when on goal with the ball, hoping for some strongly favourable scores, but it doesnt seem to work?
i am always conceding and when looking at the match report stats its like i have lots of shots on goal to their few and ending up losing 2-0 or something.

is there a strong centralised formation anyone can link me to on here i could try out?

otherwise i might stick to the iodine tactic which has been good though at times even that doesnt always guarantee success in the big games

thanks

It doesn't use any left or Right sided players.

I've created it using my old tactic and using iodine wibwob.

I recall some of info0s DWS tactics were very good, 2 Centre Halfs, central to the Mid then went wider up the field.
