One thing i love about soccer is the ability to use tactics. In hattrick you can only have 3 tactic formations at the same time. Are you ever going to get rid of the formaton experience?

building up enough experience so that you wouldn't lose experience. I like the idea that i can surprise an opponent using a formation he doesn't expect.

One should never say never, but I hardly think we'll ever get rid of the formation experience.

I think one can endlessly debate on if formation experience make the game more tactical or less tactical, I for one says it makes the game more tactical. If you can't foresee (well, at least have a clue) how your opponent will play, then how to know which tactic you should use against him? If we get rid of the formation experience then you'll have to guess and rely on luck on which formation your opponent will use, which means your tactical choice is in fact less tactical as it relies on pure guessing. I also think formation experience is kind of realistic. Not that realism is the most important thing in a game, but it's for sure not a bad thing either.

Moreover I think that many users are too afraid for surprising an opponent with a new formation. Even with the lowest formation experience you can get away without any confusion - read the rules for advice. Secondly, even if you get some confusion it's not always that bad - it may pay off anyway. One possible thing is also to use the new formation in a friendly a week in advance, just one match gives a lot of experience.
