First, I would like to say that limiting the number of clans isn't really my opinion. My opinion is irrelevant, I suggested it to accommodate those that complain about playing year around. I understand the concept of a "play in round." For those of you that have been here a long time would know that anything over 16 was considered the "play in round" in the first two cups. My idea was for that to be the same. As Bruce pointed out, we are not done with CC2. It takes a long time to finish all of these wars. The clans who are repeatedly in the final 4 or so are never getting a break. I also suggested limiting it because if we expand it to another play in round, then the entire tournament will last even longer. Eventually I feel the tournament needs to be capped somewhere, otherwise it'll turn into a 2 year event which would be entirely too long in Conquer Club life terms.
This also may be a mute point. At quick glance I see 38 teams on the FD400. Surely not all of them have 2 completed wars of 40 challenges, do they? I also wouldn't imagine they'd all sign up. So we may only have 28ish signup. Anyone care to check these numbers?
p.s. My orinigal statement about starting the first Conqueror's Cup was to give EVERY clan a chance to fight and prove they are the best, regardless of status (but still using a 2 war rule to make sure the clans will stick to their commitment).
I do still agree with that, only reason I would consider denying anyone so far down now is the logistics of completing so many wars.
