16-07-2003, 22:38
Hey everyone, i'm new here. I was just wondering if some of you could tell me the formations you use, as i have a pretty much complete master league team but still havn't found a formation that i'm happy with. Thanks in advance.

Check the General section for a formations thread if not many reply here.

I never use the default formations but I use them to make my own.

3-2-2-3 are interesting for using in ML.

(typical gooner)

lol and whats that supposed to mean, its the secret to greatness

It's interesting how the team people follow affects their playing of the PES/WE games.

17-07-2003, 11:30
lol cheeky very cheeky

17-07-2003, 11:39
Not trying be cheeky, mate.
I've noticed this with quite a few people.

BTW, when's your next Lewisham tournament?

17-07-2003, 11:43
its not probably gonna be untill 09 august cause thats when evrybody can make it, are u that desperate to lose your money

17-07-2003, 11:54
hey don't be cheeky now.
I can compete.
If you want, I can bring a couple of players who will be sure to take all the winnings.

17-07-2003, 12:33
im not being cheeky im just talking from my views im not saying that im not beatable cause i think everyone is beatable, im just saying that ive never been beaten my more than 3 goals and out of all my firends and the people ive ever played on pes ive beaten them by more than 5 clear goals im not boasting or anything im just talking form my experience ever since ive started playing this game ive never come across anyone that i couldnt beat

17-07-2003, 12:35
So you win most of these tournaments yourself?

17-07-2003, 12:39
i wouldnt say i win most of the tournaments but iave have won the tournaments the most out of everyone there

17-07-2003, 12:40
Then I look forward to playing you.
You want me to bring the best player I know?

17-07-2003, 12:42
yeah all newcomers are welcome Zyg to be the best u have to play the best

and how good is he on a scale of one to ten and how good do u rate yourself

17-07-2003, 12:45
I think I am 8.
Some of the guys I know are 9 and 9.5

No-one is 10 as even the official champion can lose sometimes.
Mind you, they do make him stand and play for hours....

How about you?

17-07-2003, 12:51
id probably say about and 8 but when im having a really good day id say a 9 cause this might sound big headed but on a really good day im unstopable

17-07-2003, 13:32
How about getting back to the original question anyone.

They should let us have 4 CFs if we want.
Could be useful in an emergency.

A bit more creativity maybe.

18-07-2003, 00:35
Yeah, you should be able to have entirely manual formations. Teams quite often do have up to 4 CFs towards the end of certain games when losing/drawing.

I also like annoying friends by going one up and then changing formation to the most defensive one. But that's probably only 4-5-1, so it's not much fun.

19-07-2003, 12:41
thanks guys i'll try some of those out.

19-07-2003, 12:50
try 4-1-2-1-2

19-07-2003, 17:15
i always use 4-1-2-1-2! basic diamond but players out a little

28-07-2003, 11:54
3-5-2 is the best formation
with two definsive mf depending on who ya playing but u will dominate most teams using this formation plus still score plenty of goals from mf just set 1 df mf to sit back and cover the back 3 and the other to push onto support the forwards so most of the time you have a front 3 or 4 depending wot ya do with ya attacking mf...it works for me :D

dream team

i like the simple 4,4,2 it provides lots of defensive cover and going forward in numbers as the wing backs push up the wings and defensive midfeilders will then hang on the edge of the box so if u have a dm with a decent shot then u will have a extra man going forward

In 3-2-2-3 you don't have any SB's or SMF's so defending from sides if very difficult. If someone plays against you with 4-4-2, you're in big trouble.... ;)

05-08-2003, 14:55
Not necessarily as they will have to get into the centre eventually and you have 3 (hopefully big) CBs to clear and if it lands outside the area, 2DMFs to clean up.

Even if you have SBs, the opposition usually manage to get a cross in anyway and though it's useful to try to block the cross - then they go for corners which are even more risky!

OK then, 4-2-2-2 then. How's that?
I had a lot of ML success with 3-2-2-3 including a 13-0 win on Extreme level.

05-08-2003, 15:01

I use a 3 - 4 - 3 and it's not bad but risky!!
I use the German team with Nowotny, Metzelder and Worns at the defense ans it's works pretty good!!

07-08-2003, 08:30
4-3-3b only. it's very good. but not the deault one I change it a bit
