|How to run a 16 Team Compass Draw Tournament|
The bracket is labeled with the 8 directions on a compass(North, South, East, West, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest). When a team loses they are moved to a different bracket, winners always just advance in their current bracket. The numbers inside each match represent the order the games are to be played in. Where you see L9, L10, L11 ect.. this is where the loser of each one of those games is to be moved(L stands for loser, the number represents the game number they lost).
The losers in the second round from the East Bracket move up to the North Bracket and the the losers of the West Bracket drop down to the South Bracket. The winners just move over in the current bracket.
At the end of round 3, the losers of the West drop down to the Southwest Bracket and the losers from the East will move up to the Southeast Bracket.
The losers of the South Bracket will move over to the Southeast, and the losers of the North Bracket will move over to the Northwest Bracket.
At the end of round 4, the winner of each game is the champion of that particular bracket.
