We understand that many of you don’t like the counter formation 5-4-1. Propably mostly you don’t like losing against it.
Furthermore, 4-2-3-1 is being played less than in reality. We are going to change this.
4-2-3-1 will get a counter attack propability lower than 5-4-1 but larger than the other formations starting next season. This means that 4-2-3-1 is versatile and can score with counter attacks but also by other means like before.
Additionally, we tweak counters to work in a more realistic way. If you are leading, your team will start less counter attacks, and if your opponent scores the first goal, they will play more secure resulting in quite a problem for 5-4-1 but not for 4-2-3-1.
We are sure that this changes will further improve the tactics experience in Kick it out.
