Attack in the middle (AIM) tactics raises the probability that your team attacks in the middle, lowering at the same time the probability that a chance is created on the side of the field.

Using AIM, the game keeps adding a modifier throughout the match and the effectiveness is reported with a level of tactics at the start of the game and in the match ratings. When calculating AIM level, an experience bonus is added for each involved player.

The AIM tactic is reported with events and lost opportunities are detailed.


The distribution of regular chances between center, wings and set pieces (direct or indirect) is 35%, 25% (left ad right), 15%. Playing AIM would change this distribution by at least 15% up to 30% (if the ability in the tactic is the highest possible).

The ability in the tactic is calculated by summing the Passing ability of all outfield players.

Benefits and drawbacks

At the price of weakening of the wing defence, the AIM tactics allows you to push in the middle where (hopefull) your attack is stronger.


As with all predictable formations and tactics, if you use AIM all the time, don't be surprised when the opposition stack the central defence against you.


You need Passing, Passing, Passing. All your players must have Passing.


There's no particular Specialty directly bound to this tactics.


You need to attack in the middle, so a good idea is to use 3-4-3 or 3-5-2. Anyway it depends on your training.
