Our user crystalkiddo created this small applet, which could give you a much better idea how these formations pair to each other on the field. Click here to open the applet.

STBL and STT line up "crossed" against each other. This means the STT are filled from left to right, while the STBL are filled from right to left. By this, STT1 is facing STBL1, as example.
