FC 24 Post Patch Meta 4222 Custom Tactics and Attacking Instructions Guide
In this guide, we're going to explore the updated tactics for the 4-4-2 formation, particularly the 4-2-2-2 variation, for both FIFA veterans and newcomers. These tactics have been thoroughly tested and fine-tuned to cater to various skill levels, from Division 5 to the elite divisions. We'll discuss both player instructions and tactics to help you improve your game and secure more victories in Weekend League matches.
↖ Player Instructions
- Stay Central
- Stay Forward
- One of the strikers should be set to "Get in Behind" if they are an agile player who excels at making runs behind the defense. For example, a player like Son should be set to "Getting Behind," while a more balanced player like Smith can be set to "Balanced."
Left and Right Attacking Midfielders (LAM and RAM):
- Get into the Box for a Cross
- These players should focus on attacking and creating scoring opportunities. However, it's essential to note that even though they are not set to "Come Back on Defense," they will still contribute defensively.
Center Defensive Midfielder (CDM):
- Stay Back While Attacking
- Cover Center
- The CDM should be a defensively-oriented player who remains behind to provide stability in your midfield.
- Stay Back While Attacking
- Your center-backs must prioritize defensive duties and not venture forward.
Left Back and Right Back:
- Overlap (You can use Balanced for a more balanced approach)
- You can choose to have them overlap to add width to your formation, but this is optional. It depends on your preference for a more attacking or balanced approach.
↖ Tactical Settings
Now, let's dive into the tactical settings for the META 4222 formation:
- Defensive Behavior: Use "Cut Passing Lanes" as your defensive behavior instruction for your team. Avoid using "Tight Marking" as it may not work as effectively as desired.
- Depth: Set your depth to 71. This is the recommended depth for the current meta and ensures you have good control over your defensive positioning.
- Width: Width can be set to 55 for a balanced approach. If you want a more narrow formation to utilize finesse or trivela shots, you can reduce it slightly (e.g., 30-35).
- Chance Creation: Use "Direct Passing" for your chance creation. This setting is more effective if you have pacey players to exploit quick transitions.
- Attacking Play: Consider using "Long Ball" as your attacking play instruction. This encourages your players to make runs in behind the defense. However, this can be adjusted based on your playing style.
- Crossing: Set "Get in the Box for Cross" to 7. This instructs your players to be in the box, ready for scoring opportunities, without being overly aggressive.
- Corners and Free Kicks: Keep both corner and free kick settings at 3 to maintain a balanced approach in these situations.
↖ Customizing Width for Attacking Play
If you wish to have more control over the width in attacking situations, you can set specific player instructions to achieve this:
- You can use "Drift Wide" or "Hug the Sideline" on your wide players (LAM and RAM) to make them play wider. This is particularly useful if you want to create a wide attacking play.
- This allows you to push your full-backs wider and promote wide play, which can be effective for certain tactics, such as cutbacks.
The META 4222 formation is a potent choice for Weekend League success. These tactics and instructions provide a well-balanced approach to help you achieve more victories in your matches. Be sure to adapt these settings to your preferred play style and the players in your squad. Good luck in the Weekend League, and may your skills lead you to victory!
