Formation Shifts

Does anyone know a good reference about fomation shifts? I bought the strategy guide, but it didn't provide any details.

Thanks for any help

It's actually in the game. Just go to coach options(I think that's where it's at) and you can see what each formation shift looks like.

Re: Formation Shifts

This feature is useless as far as I'm concerned. It's totally done backwards. The way it works now, you choose a play and then switch to a different formation. ie you pick singleback-normal-hb dive, then you switch to 4 wr. I wish you could select a bluff formation first, and then pick your play that you want to run. To me it's a lot easier to choose the final formation you want to run from the play-call screen rather than having to audible to it at the line of scrimmage.

Thoughts?

Re: Formation Shifts

I think I agree with Mizzou23...not positive what he's trying to say, but I think they have it backwards.

Instead of picking the play and changing the formation set, I think the formation should stay the same, and you should be able to choose a play for that formation. That way if you come out in a 2 TE Singleback formation and plan on running up the middle but you notice they have all their DT's pinched in and 2 LB's showing blitz up the middle you change the play to a pitch or a playaction pass but keep the same formation.
