This forum area was created for those who wish to easily share or download user created tactics. If you wish your tactic to appear on our download area instead, please read this.

Please take the time to include the following details:

Topic name - Be as descriptive as possible.
For example: 4-2-3-1 Goal Machine - Great With Top Clubs

Opening Post - Provide as much detail as possible. Include important information and if possible, images or detailed descriptions of the formation, team and player settings.

Don't forget to include information about what types of players you try to use in each position or role. What player attributes others should look for, that work well with the tactic.

If you use additional settings, such as shouts (touchline instructions) during matches, Opposition Instructions (OI's), or have media and motivational tips that you use with your tactics, don't forget to provide details of those as well.

Try to provide examples of how you've done with your tactic and what teams you've used them with, what divisions or countries they've worked well in.

Download link - Try to provide as many download links as you can, using reputable and well known free file hosting sites such as - - - anything that doesn't require someone having to register in order to download the file.


If you didn't create the tactic yourself, you need permission from the original author to post it here. In case we discover that you shared someone else's tactic without permission, we'll delete the topic and issue warnings/bans to those who have posted them here. Simply put, if it isn't your tactic, don't post it unless you have permission to do so.

If you want to post a modified or updated version of someone else's tactics, please take the time to credit them for their original efforts in your opening post and provide a link to their original creation.

Be prepared to interact with your audience here on the forums. People are bound to have questions, so be patient and as helpful as you can explaining things or answering their questions.

Constructive Criticism - There's nothing worse than someone posting stuff like "is crap", "doesn't work for me" and nothing else. If someone has taken the time to share their tactic here, the very least they deserve is a little common courtesy. If you don't like the tactic, either leave it at that (and post nothing), or offer reasons why you don't think it worked for you, or ways you think it could be improved.

Share your FM16 Tactic here.
