How I generate the draws using A Random Number Generator.

Every knockout has a different amount of players or teams every year, I have to adjust each K/O sheet to suit & then assign each starting position a number, high vs low numbers, this also acts as a random draw.  As we (siwsso) don't use 'seeding' to form  knockouts, I use a RNG to provide each player with a number. The numbers get generated 3 times before they are transferred to the PLAYER.  I will not know who is playing who at this point.   I then copy the players & random number to the competition & place in their starting positions. So each draw has 3x random number x random start position, what starting position you will get assigned is any body guess, then do the same for your opponent & you have as good chance of NOT playing a last years Champions.  Good Luck.
