Criminally under used. 5s on huge is a thing of beauty that is neglected too often by the good people of FM and other leagues. There are so may advantages to this.
It gives you so much space on the ball which although creates a slower tempo game to 4s it also means individual skill becomes a lot more important. It's like a game of 3s because of the space, but a game of 4s with the need for tactics.

It also allows for more variation on formation. Rather than the standard GK, DM, AM, ST formula for 4s, it means you can play GK, 2xDMs, AM, ST, or GK, DM, 2xAMs, ST, or GK, DM, AM 2xSTs. You can get rid of AMs and DMs altogether and just have GK, 3xMids, ST. Makes it much more interesting than simply an attacking mentally vs a defensive mentality as in 4s.

Say yes to 5s bounce

Though I do see 5v5 as the format of the future, the popular format is 4v4 ATM and its still a fun format for the time being.

4s for now imo

I'm not suggesting a change of format for the league, just that 5s on huge should be played more. Well, should be played a bit as opposed to the none existent playing it has now.

True.

5s on big easy is pretty good too, especially with 3 man def.

Realistically with a Goal Size that's the same size of my hand span, even Qezo could snipe GQKU from a mile away.

The only reason it's never played is that you have to rely on 10 players to understand how to play it properly. Otherwise it turns into a shitfest and could turn out like 4v4 4 man def which is just terrible and boring.

Not if proper tactics are devised. Realistically, the pitch is so large that having right sided and left sided players is a possibility.

Bubblehax already being pioneers.

5v5 might work if people acutally make tactics for it, the only times anyone had really played 5v5 prob is in crap pub rooms where everyone spams and stuff. We should at least try it at some point.
