    Hope for my CL final.

    So the NGE strikes yet again!

    I would have bet money/tokens on this outcome and lost big. This guy is my main competition in the CL and I expect to meet him in the final. Nice to know he can lose vs lol teams.



    Nothing special about this game. Just one of those days for him I guess.

    4-1-2-1-2 ND counters the 4-3W-3 it seems.

    Does the scout buyer even have a good squad depth? I know some who just buy for the sake of buying and end up with stupid formations or players they can't even replace

    ya wanna bet?



    I just played vs this arrow formation and beat it 6-1 with 4-5-1V. This 6th place team(30Q) beat the 2nd place team(32Q) that was playing a 3-5-2 down the left flank, watched the game and got 55% of possession, made 3 subs at 55' and still got jack squat vs this arrow formation.

    There is something to be said for countering. If this guy knew that 4-5-1V beats this formation, he might have changed his formation. He played me with that same 3-5-2 left flank formation and lost 1-0 a few games ago. If it works for him, fine, but now he was beaten twice and drawn once in the past 3 matches.

    But that is besides the point. There are some strange results and I dont think you can just let your team ride the same formation game after game anymore.

    @ Craciot That's not good. This guy is winning most of his games, probably over 85%. If the game engine decided to lose this one there is a good chance he'll win his next 9 or 10... You know what i mean

    You are getting boring pal. Every weird result you see or even sniff become "omfg game engine is shit see this". Wtf. I could easily say like many to stop complaining or quit the game, but i'm not that type. But AT LEAST try to look deeper into things before going nuts over any tiny piece of match and spouting nonsense.

    In the first case, not only he left totally unguarded his center vs the diamond (which is a very offensive type formation, yet rock solid in defense), but he left alone his 3 STs against 4back + 1 DMC. That is enough to double/triple mark each of the STs. Point is, you can't set 3 forwards against the ND. 2 AMS + 1 ST woulda have been WAY better. Not to mention the keeper's 9 rating.

    In the second case, despite the arrow looks idiotic, it is indeed effective. Playing on only one flank is retarded, as you limit too much your play. Even having better Q players against a massive attacking side would be enough to stop it. If you wanna go deeper, the guy played with a DMR and a AMR, which at turns were double marked by 1(AMC-MC) and 2(MC-DR). Again, a 4back vs 2 STs aided by the DMC, while his 3 STs are facing 2 DCs and 1 DL, with an extra AMC as backup. If the other played left flank, the DML was on red arrow for sure. The 3-5-2's MR would be countered by the DL of the arrow's formation, still leaving DMC+ 2 DC dealing with the strikers and the AM, so at WORST a 1vs1 situation. If the arrow formation went for long balls, then the 2-0 is pretty real as result, and probably could have been even a wider gap.

    Nonsense. The guy is second place with this left flank formation. He has beaten everyone in the league except me and the one in the pics with this formation. That is 8 wins and a draw with that stupid formation.

    Your take on both games, although it has logic, is flawed in that you forget to factor in the NGE. Sometimes the games just dont make sense and THAT is my point. You can pick any formation in the world and sometimes it will win, no matter how unlikely.

    I watch ALOT of games and pay attention to the "odd" ones, so I feel I can point out ones that should not happen. It would be so easy to say the arrow formation should lose to all formations that cover the middle and exploit the lack of pay on the wings. This guys left flank attack should have done much better and at least scored a goal. That arrow formation is not as good as the narrow diamond, IMHO.

    Add all the commentary you want, I appreciate the feedback and take it into account, but sometimes these odd formations defy explanation.
