Attacking formations and tactics

What are the different attacking formations? What attacking tactics would you recommend ?

There are mainly 2 attacking formations.
3:3
- 2 wing players and a pivot in the first line
- left - center - right backcourt players

2:4
- 2 wing players and a left and right pivot in the first line
- left and right backcourt player

Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Tactics:
- position play : players remain at their own positions and try to score by getting past their own defender - blocking defenders for each other - pass to another attacker after having drawn attention from 2 defenders etc
- concept play : consists of players moving to other positions like e.eg. going from 3:3 to 2:4 (center backcourt player goes to pivot left/right, wing players going to pivot position etc.

There are two different attack formations.

The first with a pivot, a central - back , two fullbacks (left and right), two wingers (left and right).

The second with two pivots, two fullbacks and wingers finally . Note that the two side rear posts and wingers are all the time occuped.

But, in some professional teams , we see a game with two pivots, two fullbacks , a rear - central , and one winger, in view of the favorite forms of racing and shapes fire the players.
