There are several other variables than the rather abstract ‘more players.’ Yes, if the players just sat around being ‘active players,’ somehow, rather than doing anything. As it occurs, adding more players allows for as many opportunities to dampen fun as it does to increase it. Saying that there are more players tells us nothing about the players in question – compare an active player from S14 to an active General from S1-3 or S4-9, for instance. The question is whether the new situation adds up to something fun for most usual players, not whether some aspect of it taken in the abstract is fun (and that still depends entirely upon the players involved, not merely upon their quantity regardless of who is involved.)
Although DA probably has more people, so that is an option if you want them.
