I think they are referring to the maximum number of players per association. If there are too many entries, they might limit each association to less than 6 players per gender for singles, etc.

OK, that makes more sense. Still, the total entries is way more than 170, and they approved over 6 entries for at least China and Japan regardless...

I'm glad someone overruled the 6 player limit. If you want the best players in the world to actively participate, then you can't have a 6 player limit when China and Japan have so many great players. And I'm sure that sponsors(both tt and non tt) are eager to market to the Chinese and Japanese audience.

====================
It has been this way all along. Each event has a limit (shown at the bottom of the prospectus), when the limit is exceeded - country that has more than 6 players per gender, the extra players are put on the WL (waiting list). In the end ALL of them get to play including those on WL. (ITTF removed the WL behind those players' names just before starting.)

2018 Hungarian Open is the only exception, ITTF enforced the rule on that one - those on WL didn't get to play.

All other ITTF tournaments, they never enforced the rule - everybody get to play.

Now 2018 Qatar Open, before starting, ITTF removed all "WL" designation behind those players who have that.  Everybody gets to play.

Apparently ITTF thinks that enforcing the rule in that Hungarian Open was a bad idea, they choose to return to the old way of letting everybody play.  They must think that letting everybody play is good for table tennis.

Ding Ning, Liu Shiwen, Sun Yingsha, Mu Zi and several other Chinese female players will play in the "Qualification Groups".
On men's side: Fang Bo, Zhou Yu, Xue Fei, Liu Dingshuo and Wang Chuqin will play in the "Qualification Groups".

============

If promising young players, in the "qualification" stage, should run into these players - they will have a hard time to advance to the Main Draw.  These Chinese players are stronger than some of the seeded players.

That's a good point.  This new ranking system has really wreaked havoc in both the qualification groups and main draw.  If they were so adamant to use this system, then I would rather have them start with last year's rankings/points as a baseline for rankings and then in 2018, start accumulating the best of 8 results.

Too much assumption from a little fact...
