Incorrect, in Div 1, 12 of the 16 clans get automatic bids as 4 were demoted.
In Div2, where most of the issues were, only 4 of the 16 (or however many ended up finishing the season) get auto-bids due to promotion.

There are currently 9 play in spots and so far 11 play in teams have applied. If I were a leader of a play in team, I think I would like those odds. Given that 8 of the auto-bids have not confirmed, there may not have to be any play in battles. We will see in the next few days what actually happens. If all clans applied, then the likely scenario would be groups of balanced 3, and 2 teams moving on. Not sure exactly how play-ins will work.

There are no real rights here, only privileges. Every clan last year was given the privilege to play in the league, and a number of clans disappointed me, and made running Division 2 very difficult. I would like to be all-inclusive, however, practicality will win out.

I very well could have to play a top team like FOED or the LEGION to get into the league witch I think would be a great battle and think we could beat or be beaten by ether one of them and maybe a very low ranked team gets in by default or has to play another low ranked clan to get into the league? I for one think if any clan meets the requirements to get in they should be in and you and who ever else is helping should be able to make it work. If clans are eliminated due to a short series of games this is nothing more than a tournament and should not count for anything towards a ranking system.
I would like to think that I am very fair. Have a little faith. There are potentially 26 clans right now that may want to participate. If I believe all 26 can make it through the season, I have not ruled out letting all play. 26 would be 2 groups of 6 and 2 groups of 7.
