The reason only 20 and 24 clans are being considered if there is a increase in the playoff pool is because the quality and activity of clans after the top 24 decreases significantly. Clans this season from position 17-24 have are good enough to be a part of the playoffs. Clans from positions 25-32 are not really that great or are inactive.

Pros

Soldat has become more competitive and more popular. With over 100 clans joining SCTFL, only 16 advancing into playoffs may be somewhat disproportionate. Many clans that missed the playoffs are good enough to be part of them. A larger playoff group will give the SCTFL playoffs more parity. Less active clans will have a chance to win SCTFL.

Cons

With 20 or 24 clans joining playoffs, there is a necessity of a bye-round or qualifier round. With 20 clans joining, there is a qualifier where clans from positions 13-20 will play eachother to decide the final 4 spots for a more conventional 16 clan bracket (Positions 1-12 receive a bye). With 24 clans, there is a bye round where clans from positions 9-24 will play eachother (Positions 1-8 receive a bye). More matches means more chances of matches not being played and possible delays.

I think an increase would be good, there are some clans this year that didn't make it that I think had just as much right to be there as some of the others. But I s'pose that's what the free-play is for and they should have just taken it more seriously. An increase would please a lot of people, in my opinion.

more than 16 clans are overkill.

16 is fine, since it's freeplay system clans needs to be active in case to get in playoffs. More clans to playoff could even lead that some clans go inactive durin' playoffs and wont play they matches and that would suck.

16 clans is quite good. I believe more clans wouldn't put up the drama and excitement of the last moments from freeplay period...
