Arch - HAHAHA!

Okay, seriously, I have a question. Could someone briefly explain to me how the groupings work, and how they decide who goes on to each level of competition? It all seems so random to me, who plays who. How do they decide? That way maybe I can have fun in this pool too.

The 2 teams with the best records in each group, after the round robin, advance to the 2nd round. From there it's single elimination to advance. (1st in A plays 2nd in F, 1st in B plays 2nd in E etc...)
