Here are my guesses for the semi-finals... from the first category I had picked 11 and had a really tough time cutting one song!  Iceland's entry is insane; I was rofling the entire time I watched it, but it was such a train wreck that I couldn't stop watching it and voted for them for kicks!  Russia's ended up being one of my favorites!


Semi Final 1 Qualifiers:

1. Cyprus - Replay
2. Finland - Look Away
3. Czech Republic - Friend of a Friend
4. Hungary - Az én apám
5. Belarus - Like It
6. Serbia - Kruna
7. Belgium - Wake Up
8. Iceland - Hatrið mun sigra
9. Estonia - Storm
10. San Marino - Say Na Na Na


Semi Final 2 Qualifiers:

1. Armenia - Walking Out
2. Moldova - Stay
3. Switzerland - She Got Me
4. Azerbaijan - Truth
5. Denmark - Love is Forever
6. Croatia - The Dream
7. The Netherlands - Arcade
8. Russia - Scream

Good evening Europe! And thank you T'Lara for hosting such a wonderful event... love your dress by the way!

And now, here are the results from Chipz' gambling considerations:

Winners from the first semi-finals:

Cyprus
Montenegro
Finland
Poland
Czech Republic
Belarus
Belgium
Georgia
Estonia
Greece

Winners from the second semi-finals:

Armenia
Ireland
Switzerland
Denmark
Sweden
Lithuania
Russia
Norway
the Netherlands
Azerbaijan

I do agree with hippie... the quality of the contestants in the second semi-finals is way higher than in the first. As long as the Netherlands qualify I'll be a happy little Chipz.

Good Evening Europe, Hello World, Hey Fleethearts! This is the hippiepunk calling and here is what I guess who's gonna qualify:

First Semi:
Cyprus
Poland
Czech Republic
Hungary
Georgia
Australia
Iceland
Estonia
Portugal
San Marino

Second Semi:
Armenia
Denmark
Sweden
Croatia
Malta
Russia
Norway
Netherlands
North-Macedonia
Azerbaijan


I'd like to add that I think the first Semifinal is rather weak and the second is much stronger generally. From personal taste and general impression of song strenght, there should only be seven or eight countries from the first and 12 or 13 countries from the second, but.... that's not an option.
So I go with this guess of what will happen!

Take your chance to win up to 100 million EC in this years Heavy Betting Game!

Make bets on the results of the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest. Who will win? Who will get the least points? Which place will a certain country make?
Also predict the qualification results from the Semifinals to get a bonus. Here are the rules of this years Yourovision Heavy Betting Game:




Quick Guide


Step One - Predict Semifinal Qualifications
Starting from April 12th, one month before the in-game-event, place your bets on the qualifications from the Semifinals (10 qualifiers per Semifinal) by either making a post in this thread, sending an ingame mail to TedHembach or following this link to a google online form:
Google Form Eurovision Semi Final Qualifier Bets
Step Two - Place your Grand Final Bets!
You can place your bets for the Grand Final also in this thread after the Semi Finals took place, or, if you dare and you have enough Guramba, now!
Step Three - After the final, receive your EC winnings!

Please note: You can find an example post after this one!


Detailed Guide


Every correct bet in the Grand Final wins! You are allowed to place 10 different bets on the results of the Grand Final on May 18th.

Three types of bets are possible:
a) Winner Bet
Predict a nation to win. You can have various winner bets with different countries. You can not bet on the same country more than one time.
b) Loser Bet
Predict a nation to receive null points (or the least amount overall) in the end result. Like with the winners, you can have several loser-bets with different nations, but only one bet per country.
c) Position Bet
Predict which nation will take a certain position, for example the second place or the fifth. Position Bets are limited to only one Postion Bet per position and per country.
You can neither put the same country in a lot of places nor can you bet on different nations in the same position. Make your mind up and bet on a set of different places and different nations!


Winnings


Every correct bet with regards to the Grand Final from all players wins the same share from a pool of 50 million EC. The pool of 50 million EC gets divided in as many shares as there have been correct bets overall from all players. That means if only few people guess correctly, they win lots of EC. And if a lot of people get a lot of things right, everyone wins some EC!

Math Example:
10 correct bets overall 5 million per bet
5 correct bets overall 10 million per bet
2 correct bets overall 25 million per bet
only 1 correct bet 50 million for the one lucky bet

The five fleeties with the most correct bets will also receive 1 ship box of the following:

  • Ferengi D'Kora Ship
  • Tholian Orb Weaver Ship
  • Voth Bastion Flight-Deck Cruiser
  • Hirogen Hunter Heavy Escort
  • Undine Nicor Bio-Warship

The person with the most correct bets may choose one of the ships first, then the person with the second-most correct bets chooses one of the remaing ships and so on until the person with the fifth most correct bets receives the last ship. Should there be ties in between who has the most correct bets, the person who posted their bets first chronologically will be allowed to choose first.
Note: betting on several different winners means that only one of your bets can be correct. If you bet on things that can be true simultaneously, your chances to get one of the ships might be higher.




Predict Semifinal qualifications to win even more!


You will also have the opportunity to predict the qualifications from the Semifinals and guess which ten nations are going to qualify from each Semifinal. For every correctly predicted qualification, you will receive a bonus modificator on the amount of EC you can win with your bets on the Grand Final. For every correct prediction, that predictions number is added as a bonus.

If you predict one qualification correctly, you get 1% bonus added. Betting right on two qualifications, you will receive the 1% from the first one and additional 2% bonus for the second one. So two correct predictions give 3% bonus. The third correct prediction adds another 3% and now you would receive 6% bonus EC to your final win. With a fourth correct prediction, you would receive 10% bonus. This adds up until, in case you predicted all ten qualifiers from this Semifinal correctly, you would receive 55% bonus from one Semifinal to your Grand Final win.

Math Example:

If you won 1 million from the 50-million-pool of the Grand Final and predicted
4 qualifiers from the Semifinals, you receive (1+2+3+4 = 10)
10% bonus which gives you a final sum of (1 million + 10%)
1.100.000 EC winning prize.
Had you predicted all 20 qualifiers from both semifinals correctly, you would receive
110% bonus which would turn your 1 million base win from the pool into 2.100.000 EC in the result.

If one person gets the complete pool 50.000.000 EC
and predicts all Semi Qalifications correctly 2 x 55% bonus
that would result in winnings of 105.000.000 EC

Stonewall Screenshot Challenge

2 weeks ago


Greetings Stonewall!

Slowly but surely the frosty touch of winter is dissipating from the Northern hemisphere. The warmth of the sun is again touching our faces, and this can only mean one thing: it is spring once more! This makes for a perfect opportunity to board your starships and traverse our Milky Way Galaxy in the sweet company of your fellow Fleeties in search of that perfect photograph. Whether you’re swooning to get a superb screenshot with Sela, or posing for the perfect picture with a Pakled, your Department of Fleet Morale is here to challenge your skills at making screenshots!



As a part of #SGNSpring, you can participate in the Stonewall Screenshot Challenge to win lots of Stonewall Credits and other amazing prizes. But most importantly, you will have a chance to spend precious, memorable time and a good laugh with your fellow Fleeties in order to get that perfect picture. The event will start on Friday 19 April 2019 at 18:00 UTC1) when a list of challenges will be posted behind the link below:

The Complete List for the Stonewall Screenshot Challenge

There will be sixty (!) challenges divided into three difficulty levels. Thirty of the challenges will be labelled as easy, meaning that a single participant can perform one challenge within several minutes. The fifteen challenges with a medium difficulty can sometimes be performed by a single participant, requiring a little more effort, but other times a medium challenge requires a bit of coordination between you and another Fleetie. Now, for those who truly seek to be put to the test… there are also fifteen difficult challenges, which will need a lot of preparation and coordination between you and multiple other Fleet members!

The points awarded for completing each challenge will be scaled with the difficulty level of the challenge, and the goal is to earn as much points as you can before the deadline of Sunday 5 May 2019 at 18:00 UTC1). The Fleet Morale Department is not expecting that any of the participants will be able to finish all the challenges, but it would make for an awesome surprise if you could indeed pull of that amount of cooperative fun!



We’ll be awarding the following prizes for the contest winner and the first four runners up:

1st place – 6 Stonewall Credits
2nd place – 5 Stonewall Credits
3rd place – 4 Stonewall Credits
4th place – 3 Stonewall Credits
5th place – 2 Stonewall Credits

Stonewall Credits can be redeemed for in and out of game merchandise by visiting the Stonewall Credit Store!

Moreover, some of the challenges will not only require a screenshot, but will also challenge your creative side. The most creative entries of these tasks will be rewarded with very shiny extra prizes such as Lock Box Master Keys, or even a Ferengi D’Kora Marauder!

Even if you were unable to win any of the above prizes, you will still be rewarded for your effort though! Every non-winning participant will be given a special Duty Officer Requisition Pack as a thank you for your participation!



You can participate in the event by performing as many challenges as you can from the list before Sunday 5 May 2019 at 18:00 UTC1). You should make a screenshot of each challenge you performed and name the file in the following manner:

[Challenge number]_[your handle].jpg

For example, Chipz416 makes a screenshot for Challenge 34. He locates the file and renames it to: 34_Chipz416.jpg.

Save and bundle all the images you made so that you can submit them all in one go before the deadline of the event. When you’ve finished making all the screenshots you could, upload them all to https://wetransfer.com/ for delivery to SGNMoraleDept@gmail.com. Remember… submissions should be in the mailbox of the Department of Fleet Morale before Sunday 5 May 2019 at 18:00 UTC1)!

You don’t have to do all the screenshots with just one character! In fact, some of the challenges can only be performed by KDF Warriors, Starfleet Captains, or members of the Romulan Republic.

In general you are not allowed to photoshop the screenshots except for a few exceptions. You are allowed to crop, rotate, resize, and/or mirror the image. You are also allowed to add little bits of text to the image… in fact some challenges will even need you to add text in order to qualify for bonus points or additional prizes! It is also allowed to make use of features such as /renderscale, and /setregionfov.



Making screenshots can either be done by pressing the [PrtScr]-button on your keyboard, by using Demorecord2), or by entering either of two in-game commands in the in-game chat window:

/screenshot_jpg – This will save a JPEG-file in your default screenshot folder without displaying the game's user interface.
/screenshot_ui_jpg – This will save a JPEG-file in your default screenshot folder while displaying the game’s user interface.

Screenshots in STO are by default stored in the following folder:
\Star Trek Online_en\Star Trek Online\Live\screenshots

For example for me they are installed in the folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Star Trek Online_en\Star Trek Online\Live\screenshots

If you use the [PrtScr]-button on your keyboard, the screenshot without the user interface is also stored in the above folder. If you would like to show the user interface as well when using [PrtScr] you can just paste the image made by the [PrtScr]-button to your favourite image editor like Paint, Photoshop, or whatever suits your fancy!

If you need any technical assistance in making the screenshots, or if you have any other event-related questions, don’t hesitate and ask your nearest friendly neighbourhood Fleet Morale Department Member; Balduranne, Caijamin, Chipz416, or SaintPlazma! We will be more than happy to help you out!

1)11:00 UTC is the same as:
4:00 AM PDT (Los Angeles)
7:00 AM EDT (New York)
12:00 BST (London)
13:00 CEST (Amsterdam)

2)VietHai has produced a very helpful tutorial for those of you who would like to learn about Demorecord:

We like that idea, but right now it will be more like a chat based tell-your-tale thingie. We've did a klingon boasting contest a while ago, and it was done in this manner. Was a lot of fun. So, if you want to take part, please prepare a short song/poem/story, which can be posted in the fleetchat in, say, up to 5 - 10 posts.

The singing or sometimes mentioned live karaoke thing has the problem of synchronizing around the world. Most people are unaware of this problem, but you have it even in the PvE's of the game. We use 2 computers with the same connection and we sometimes measure a difference about 1.5 seconds. In the game that isn't that dramatic, but in live singing it is really awful. But we're working on it for the future...
