So recently I just found this really confusing to me.

I'm the manager of a Hong Kong team, Kitchee, and also the Hong Kong national team manager. We have won the Asian Champions League (like the European Champions League in Europe ,the first tier continental club competition) many times, also the national team rank is rising soar to 12th. However, I just noticed that Vietnam got more quotas for entering the ACL group stage directly than Hong Kong.

As you can see, Hong Kong got 1+0+2 but Vietnam got 2+1+1, and last season Vietnam only got 1+0+1. In my opinion, Hong Kong should get 2+1, China should get 2+1 too and Australia rises to 3+1, as the semi-finalist of the East are usually Kitchee against a South Korean or an Australian team.

This shows the past winners of ACL.

There is no way for Vietnam getting more quotas than Hong Kong, as they only entered ACL for the first time last season and ranked the last in my group H.

This is the league ranking of Asia. Hong Kong is 5th and Vietnam is 9th.

Here are the national team rankings. Hong Kong is 12th and Vietnam is 93rd.

So, how does it calculated for the continental qualification places? I have remained 1+2 for many seasons and I want more teams from Hong Kong to play in ACL. Could someone help me? Or is this just a bug?

Did a bit of digging, and you'll never progress beyond 3 participants because of the size of your local league:

*5.4. Member Associations shall be allocated a maximum of one third (1/3) of the total number of clubs in their national top division league. This figure includes direct slots and playoff slots.

From http://www.the-afc.com/afc/documents/PdfFiles/entry-manual-afc-club-competitions-2017-2020-33728

Further, it also stipulates that qualification places are allocated based on REGION, where Vietnam is in the ASEAN region (top 3 countries get 2 direct qualifiers), whereas Hong Kong belongs to the EAST region (where the #1 country only gets 1 direct qualifier). 

So basically, the game is correct, and under the current format you can never gain additional ACL places.

Thanks for your help, the piece of information you provided is very useful. This should be the reason why Vietnam gets 2 places in group stage.
