To qualify you need to be in rank 2000 pop OR rank 1000 off OR rank 1000 def. Since most of the off and def ranks already have qualified by pop it’s only a smaller amount of players that qualifies by off or def. Many of the off players also is in rank 1000 def. I’ve checked that so the counted def/off players have only qualified by def/off.
We usually lose around 30% to 40% of the players, wildcards will be added. I guess on 9-10K players in Final.
