There are plenty of formation primers around and I don't really feel like doing that much writing right now... However, sometimes there just isn't enough visual information attached to said primers, and we could always do with more ways of seeing what all of these abstract shapes look like on the field. I also thought it would be a nice idea to show just what I'm abbreviations I'm using for certain positions in my formation charts. So, without further ado (apart from the story jump), Graham's Quite Excellent Formation Visualisation Tool!
