We will decide the winner via the game. xcheer The rules are very simple: I will post the hints from time to time (most likely one hint per day) and you have to guess a city according to the available hints. You can post only once per semi-final/final, what means that you can make 2 posts (one in each semi) while we have semi-finals (with limited number of guesses by semi-final). The game is very popular and exciting and it definitely won't be boring. xcheer Also, the winner will be contacted, but he/she won't be revealed until they will decide to use the twist.

HINTS:
1. It is a place (3 guesses x 2 semis = 6 guesses -> 3 guesses in each semi)
It is a city (yeah I accidentally revealed this :D)
2. Its population is lower than 500 000 (3 guesses x 2 semis = 6 guesses -> 3 guesses in each semi)

Hey to everyone and welcome to one of the most popular forum games! xcheer I'm back once again as one of ESC Big Brother hosts. If you are playing this game for the first time, please check the rules below! :D

ESC Big Brother 2018 has two big parts: 2 semi-finals and the big final. Semi-finals are equal to the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 semi-finals with prequalified countries that are voting in that semi-final. While there are no prequalified countries, the big final will consist of 13 songs from every semi-final! xcheer The last standing song in the final will be crowned with ESC Big Brother 2018 winner award. Both semi-finals and final include special twists/challenges which are here to make this game more interesting for everyone, so let's hope that we will succeed! xcheer

http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p562/jukishka/ESC%20BB%202018/game%20rules%20new_zps73jzvtci.png
1. ESC Big Brother 2018 is back! The game consists of 2 parts: nomination and elimination and both will be very exciting. xcheer

2. Head of Household is also back! At the beginning of every round, 3 HoHs will be chosen and they will be required to send a list of 3 songs for nomination. Everything together will give 3 songs which will be up for eviction. The most voted song will be eliminated from the game. :D

3. The songs that are nominated and not eliminated in the current round cannot be nominated in the next round!

4. How to become the HoH? Every person who will post in the thread will be thrown in the hat from where we will draw 3 names. Also, it is irrelevant if you post once or 20 times during the round.

5. All HoH winners will be required to PM 2 members when they're sending their nominations: @Jukica (http://www.escunited.com/member.php?u=4374) and @ParadiseES (http://www.escunited.com/member.php?u=4437) (unless defined different). Don't worry about remembering who to private message because we will write everything in PMs we will send to the winners.

6. Everyone will be able to vote in the polls, while only the forum members will be able to become one of the HoHs. There will also be exciting twists which are created to make the game interesting. :D

7. Mostly each round will be around 24 hours long. If one round will be longer or different, we will inform you in advance.

8. The last song standing will be crowned "Big Brother 2018".

http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p562/jukishka/ESC%20BB%202018/strategy%20guide_zpsqhjrnajw.png
1. There is no rule on who you should or should not vote for, but voting for your least favorite could actually hurt some of your favorites at times, so just consider some of these strategic suggestions.

2. You are not required to reveal your votes in the thread (all polls are private), but you are allowed to share your vote and encourage members to vote with you.

3. Check the thread on who people vote for because that could give you an indication who is in danger and who is not (of course that you will never know for sure because the majority of players do not reveal their votes).

4. Base your vote on voting patterns and trends because your favourites can have bigger chances to survive.

Example: You hate Germany’s entry and also dislike the Slovenian song. While you would rather see Germany go, it may be a better idea to vote for Slovenia first if you can see a lot of members want to get rid of it first. If you have a feeling Germany will not get enough votes, you may just be throwing your vote away, so maybe going for a different song until the opportunity arises to get rid of Germany would be the smart thing to do.

5. Get with your friends and buddies and vote in groups to increase your chances to nominate/evict a song.

6. Don’t forget that the HoHs play a big part in this game, so be sure to use them wisely if you have this unique power instead of just throwing it away by nominating something you know won’t go home at this point.

So, to sum up the most important parts, the most vital things here are understanding of the rules and strategy.

http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p562/jukishka/ESC%20BB%202018/additional%20notes_zpsomemlnsk.png
1. Same as last year, the Big 5 and host are not safe from the semi-finals. :twisted: This means that Semi-Final 1 will have 22 songs and Semi-Final 2 will have 21 songs.

2. Each semi-final will give us 13 finalists, so we will be down from 43 to 26 participants by the end of semi-finals. :D

3. While the official board rules still apply here, we are more tolerable here because of usual game discussions.

4. This is not ESC Ranking Game, this game was designed to be strategic where you can either try to keep your favourites in the game or vote strategically. It was also created to be dramatic and bizarre, so you can know what to expect in most of the rounds.

So, before playing this game, please answer to these questions: Do you get mad when people try to find you in Hide And Seek? Do you get angry when someone is beating you in any game? I understand that this game isn’t for everyone and that some people will not be able to stand all the drama and pressure (or your favourites getting eliminated from the game), so please take part in this game only if you are sure that this issue will not cause any problems for you.

The main word in this game is strategy and everything is based on that. The most important thing in this game is to play smart. So, if your favourite is eliminated, SEEK REVENGE :twisted: and play smart, but if you refuse to play strategically and get upset about your favourites being kicked out early in the game, you can blame only yourselves for not playing smart.

ESC Big Brother is a ridiculous premise that encourages anti-voting and consistently results in the most milquetoast songs winning. I fundamentally disagree with the manner in which it assesses entries, and there's no point caring about something so not indicative of anything to be proud of. So you didn't offend anyone badly enough to get nominated? Cool, is there ANYTHING interesting about your song? In fact, I should take it as a badge of honor should my favorites go early.

OMG SAVE ISRAEL!!1! SAVE ESTONIA!!1! ALSO SAVE SWITZERLAND BUT THEY'RE PRIORITY #3 HERE!!1!

Every damn year.

It's not the most liked that is going through. It is the most disliked song that gets eliminated. Israel was in the top 4 with 0 points. That was the reason of Israels loss.

But wait, there is a twist! :o Since this will be the final semi-final round, I decided to make everything very spicy, so we will have Positive nominations. Instead of nominating songs they want to eliminate, they will send a list of the songs they don't want to eliminate. :o :twisted:

Poll is coming within 10 minutes (HoHs will be PMed then as well), but we are also starting something else. :o


http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p562/jukishka/coup_zpsfdvbdwop.png

We will decide the winners via the game. xcheer The rules are very simple: I will post the hints from time to time (most likely one hint per day) and you have to guess a city according to the available hints. You can post only once per semi-final/final, what means that you can make 2 posts (one in each semi) while we have semi-finals (with limited number of guesses by semi-final). The game is very popular and exciting and it definitely won't be boring. xcheer Also, the winner will be contacted, but he/she won't be revealed until they will decide to use the twist.

So, hint #1 is:
HINT #1: It is a place (3 guesses in single post per semi-final thread = 6 guesses and 2 posts total)

::be Belgium 2018 - Sennek - A Matter of Time
::fi Finland 2018 - Saara Aalto - Monsters
::mk Macedonia 2018 - Eye Cue - Lost and Found

Due to less than 3 songs after checking the nomination, the song with lowest number of points (1st choice = 5 points, 5th choice = 1 point, max number of points was 15) had to be nominated.

This also means ... congrats to all countries which have qualified to the final. xcheer 2 more countries will join them in 2 days. :D

Additional info:

This round (both semi-finals) and first round of the final will both be 2 days long due to Easter holidays. We are back to 1-day rounds after that.
