If the base is WB and you do not use WB at all in the actual game plan. No one will get credit for a start. You can not name a formation and not use it.
fermor, this statement is incorrect. As already mentioned, you can set any game plan you would like in the base setting. As long as the player you promised a start, plays in one play during the 1st half, he will get credit for the start. (play doesn't count if a penalty occurs)
I often use this strategy on defense alternating between the 4-3 and 5-2 to get my DL credit for more starts and I never play the 5-2.
