Top Eleven – Best Tactic to Use in 2016

I’ve been playing the football management game Top Eleven for a while now and I must admit that I am completely amazed with how complex this game really is. Finding the best tactic in the game requires a lot of trial and error – and if you want to end the season at the top of table, you don’t have that option. So I decided to come here and share with you the best tactic to use in Top Eleven in 2016. But my recommendation might not be exactly the one you were hoping to get.

The truth is that there is no “win all” tactic in the game – some perform better than others, while the team value matters a lot. A mediocre team might do well with a 4-4-2 formation, but get crushed by a 4-3-3, which in turn will get crushed by a 4-1-2-1-2 and so on. However, there are indeed tactics that are better against most, and that’s what we’re talking about today.

So what’s the best tactic to use in Top Eleven in 2016?

I would go for 4-1-2-1-2, which is the tactic that had the best results in my case and the tactic I’d recommend. It’s also easy to tweak out depending on how the game is going (go in defense or offense more), so let’s see how to do things to set up this tactic.

I personally try to keep things as simple as possible and that works best. Here are my player instructions:

– the 2 central defenders and DMC with blue arrows
– the DL and DR (wingbacks) with red arrows
– your best striker with red arrows, nothing else

Now regarding the Team Orders, here is what to choose:

– Team mentality: Attacking
– Focus passing: mixed
– Pressing style: advanced
– Tackling: hard
– Passing: Mixed
– Marking: Zonal
– No pressing, no counterattack

It might sound strange, but this tactic works well in the game and it’s easy to customize it. If you want to defend, simply drag the attacking midfielder to the central area and give him a blue arrow, and remove the red arrows from the wingbacks. If you’re losing or you want to go more offensive, switch to a 4-3-3: move the DM in the central midfield position and the AM as a Striker, all strikers with Red Arrows.

Just give it a try! You will be surprised to see how easy it is to win matches with this tactic!
