Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, if you exceed the Droop quota you're guaranteed a number of seats regardless of the allocation system. So you can
  1. exclude parties not making the threshold
  2. allocate seats by full multiples of the droop quota
  3. apply the d'Hondt method if there are any remaining seats unallocated
Step 2 just takes care of most of the initial steps of the d'Hondt method.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
