since we are 32 which is quite a lot (and a good thing!) will there be a 2nd group round (the top 16 going into 4 groups) or we directly go into knockout round and whoever wins there advance?

The Top 16 will advance directly into the Knockout Round (Single-elimination tournament).

Ok, how are the knockout brackets made? 16 people randomized?  In a real world cup format, you'd have 1st place group A against 2nd place group B on top of the bracket, and 2nd place group A against 1st place group B in low part of the bracket, then repeat the process with group C-D, E-F, G-H.  Two reasons for this are giving a little advantage to those who got 1st place (facing second is supposed to be easier at least) the other is avoiding refacing the same opponent again unless meeting in the finals.  I know it's a bit more job but it would be much appreciated to use the format to it's full potential :)

Players from the same group won't meet again until the finals.
