What is Team Shape? Team Shape is one of 3 primary factors which determine a players individual mentality. Team Mentality determines the team's collective mentality / strategy. Player Duty determines an individual's duty, within that collective team strategy. Team Shape how individual players prioritise the collective team mentality vs their own individual duty. → More Structured team shapes instruct players prioritise their individual duty over the team mentality. → Flexible team shape means players balance team mentality and individual duty equally. → More Fluid team shapes mean players prioritise the team mentality over their individual duty, hence why we talk about "compactness". How do we apply this in the Tactics Creator? Select the most logical Team Mentality for your overall strategy. Apply Team Instructions to tailor defensive, build-up and attacking strategy. Select a Formation which sets defensive structure and facilitates your overall strategy. Apply Individual Duties to define your attacking structure. Choose your Team Shape depending on how players should prioritise their Team Mentality vs Individual Duty. Select Player Roles and Instructions based on their movement and status as a playmaker (not their name). Set your Set Pieces. When you look at it this way, it makes the Tactics Creator pretty simple, logical and easy to relate to real life football. There. That's it. Simple. Next question. World peace? ============================================================ This is a very short article but can be a work in progress, if people don't understand it clearly. I actually wrote a much longer article in the first place but boiled it down and it's actually not as complicated as we often make out.
