In this way, new clans will play against new clans,and experience clans will play against same quality clans.

I thought of it too, but how would that look like, 6 old clans and 3 new...
I want to winner win that 3 wars

If I was just to organize a pure Newcomers Cup, every clan would get only one time to play in it.
There's no more newcomer anything in most of those clans.
Also I would have to ban any clan that was started by experienced players or former clan leaders.
I had to draw the line somewhere and this is best I could come up.
Also during the whole time I also invited all of those clans
and only those that really wanted to participate truly did so, others were not interested.
And as a last thing, I am trying to give birth here to some new clan that can do something relevant
in the future and not just be a punching bag.
The come out as a winner you must show more then just appear on the battlefield.

I have already made my ruling.
Bracket will be random.

It is tough to decide where to draw the line... obviously most of the clans above 20 shouldn't be playing in this but I think that the ones below 20 should look forward to it. We are proud of having won the first one and it wasn't a cake walk to do it. Some of the clans involved were Pig Renters, TNC, Grim Reapers, AKA, and others.
This event has prestige to it because you have to win multiple wars. Also, Sometimes you have new clans form like fallen. I am not sure if they will join or if they even want to but they can. There are many clans that are not so new anymore but they are still trying to improve all the time (RA comes to mind). I think that this event should still be something that clans like that strive to win.
Maybe a name change could be in order but I can't think of any good suggestions. All I know is that I totally agree that it can't be limited to strictly new clans and that it is a very fun event to participate in. If we didn't win and we still qualified, I am certain that we would join again because it is more than just a war and it is worth winning. Some new clans may not like the thrashing they get but at least they will understand how competitive you have to be to get even near the top 20.
