    I think pairings are made somehow based on when people entered tournaments.

    For example, in a quartets tournament, I think the people who entered the tournament 45th, 46th, 47th and 48th are all put in the same group.

    Coincidence.

    This may either be 'Original' or 'Random'. In a 'Random' tournament players are allocated between groups randomly. In an 'Original' tournament players are distributed by rating between the groups so the best rated players do no meet until later rounds.
