It is interesting to notice, now it is almost a month that it happens, that every league starting from the one that has promotion score at 1200, and with the exception of grand master that is not yet stable, has roughly half of the active players within 100 points from the demotion threshold.
So the league with demotion score 1000 and promotion 1200, has 50% of the players between 1000 and 1100.
Almost 50% of the players are between 1100 and 1200 in the league with promotion score 1300. Etc.
I suppose also grand master will have this but it is not yet finished.
Moreover the league before the top league, and this was true also with only 4 leagues, has always less people than the top league. It is like the ones that can go through they do it quickly, they do not get stuck there.
I did not thought about the reason though. I strongly believe it is due to how the score model works (score formula + matchmaking) but I think it is not so trivial to formalize.
