    Tactic Contest: 4-4-2

    Hi everyone!

    I think it is fun to do some contests to see who can create the "best" tactic for certain formations. This was done in the past and I think it's fun to pick it up again (many thanks to Desp for bringing this to my attention ).


    For this first contest I want to start with the most basic formation of all: 4-4-2.


    Rules

    • - Team instructions, player instructions, arrows and wibwob can all be used, but the formation on overview must look like this:




      - Submit your tactic to me by PM before Saturday 24th February.


      -I will test each tactic the same way I test the tactics in the Revamped Tactic League. So each tactic will be run for 100 seasons.


      -All tactics will be ranked by Points Average.


      -The winner will receive 10 points, the runner-up 9 points, the nr. 3 will get 8 points, etc. The best 10 tactics will score points. There will be an overall table where all points for each contestant will be kept.



    So start creating those 4-4-2's and submit them in the coming two weeks!


    Contestants (have send in a tactic)

    - Desp
    - Offside Trap
    - evesham
    - ViK
    - giopos
    - Dermotron
    - AtomicAnt
    - scemoka

    Hi Ray, here's my entry for the contest, I have the tactical genious of a Turnip If I even get in the top 10 I'll be surprised, the only WIBWOB on it is the GK square, without the ball

    I will enter too, but... I don't know if sharing links here is best idea GFRay.

    I would do it via PM, just as insurance, but then again, people learned how to play with their own tactics, so they seldom download tactics from others.

    . Anyway, I wonder if I can still compete.

    We should send tactic by PM to GFRay. After having test results, GFRay could release all tactics later!

    Alright, I've edited the OP and all tactics must now be submitted to me by PM to avoid copying eachothers tactics!

    Also the download links from Desp's, Offside Trap's and evesham's post have been removed for the above reason.

    I think we need to add three more rules to get real 442. First rule : The central two MCs can't have arrows to AMC and can't have arrow MLC to MC/MRC to MC. Only two arrows can be used if u want. MLC to DMLC - MRC to DMRC. If you use two back arrows, these two back arrows must be used together. One MC has back arrow other MC has not arrow must be forbidden.

    Second rule : You can give ML arrows to AML and AMLC. MR arrows to AMR or AMRC. Again here if you use ML with arrows, MR has to be arrowed same. If you don't use ML arrow, MR must non arrowed.
    Otherwise from 4 middfielders (ML-MC-MC-MR) with only one arrow - 442 converted into triple midfielded system so we can't name the tactic as 442.
    Third rule : Full backs can't be arrowed to center.. eg DMLC and DMRC. If you you want arrows for full-back it should be only to DML-DMR. if full backs has arrows to ML-MR (caz full-backs to ML-MR can be centered GDO), tactic again will be converted to christmas three or diamond winged-backs. again here not clean 442.

    I know why you would want to add these rules and personally I agree with you scemoka. But this will make the challenge much harder and I fear that people will not participate because of it.

    Therefor I will decide that these rules will not be added to the challenge. Any arrows and wibwob are allowed, but the formation must look like a 4-4-2 on overview.

    Not so much restrictions... These rules can give our mates to improve 442_tapani iodine_6e, i need passing, 442CJF which they never passed before.
    Here is avaible arrows. I only said my opinion Of course everyone free - they can do what they want.

    I know and like I said in my reply: I agree with you personally.

    But I fear adding your rules will scare people away from this challenge. By keeping the restrictions to a minimum, I'm hoping that quite some people will submit a tactic. If we add too many restrictions it will be a contest between only a few people which will be the same people that submit tactics in the RTL. I want this to be a simple challenge that anyone can participate in.

    One simple rule to add and a lot of folks are busted before they even try: don't use any Tapani influence in your tactics.

    I want creativity to be back. I wanna see some inspirational work. However, ever since Tapani released his 2 tactics to public, Hell froze and everyone started copying his works. Even when doing improvements you cannot claim this to be your work alone.

    You're saying the same thing basically as scemoka, but in different words.

    It's totally fine if you yourself play by this rule, but I will not state it as a general rule for everyone.

    I believe avoiding tapani's findings would be counterproductive. His tactics proved to utilize the game engine in the most efficient and effective way. There is no need to reinvent the wheel. Since there are practically no 4 defender tactics in the RTL top 20 at the moment, this contest could produce some interesting additions. Building upon tapani's base would be the wisest way of creating them.
