I was just wondering, how does the computer decide who gets promoted into the bottom league of the respective country's league pyramid?

For example, if 3 teams get relegated from the English Conference South, how does the computer decide which three come up?
thats a question that has been haunting me since i started playing this game!!!
I think it just makes a short calculation to decide which non-league teams are the best in that country and then those teams will get promoted (and maybe some randomness is added).
It's not completely random, as I have seen teams relegate into the nothingness and get promoted again the next season (the probability for this to happen would be incredibly low if it was random).
I think its random, although obviously the better the team in the unavalible leagues then the more likely they are to get promoted, e.g. if u see the entire team in the division below getting average ratings of 7.5 then they are likely to get promoted
I am 100% sure that reputation have effect on that,maybe not the only factor but it have effect for sure.
I think it's a mix of reputation, team strenght (non league sides often keep non-greyed out players) and past league posistions.
