Decent countries, will have to do some work to find something amazing though. Should be fun!

Everyone of the 28 members that signed up so far should have two countries now. I hope no one is too unhappy, but if you are I don't really care.

Part of the twist will become clear once the Quarter Finals open. Good luck song hunting guys!

The music scenes of both of my countries are worse than I had first thought.

Well, 2 countries I've never had, that takes some doing. Or at least I don't remember having either, I may have had the good one but am getting mixed up. Could be better, could be worse on both counts.

Oh I've missed DSFE and the descent into breakdown. I've got multiple choices for my "bad" country but I've got pretty much nothing for my "good" country, and this is after spending the last couple of hours looking. Not even the distant ancestry links are helping me here, I think this is the hardest DSFE experience which is odd...

Found something quite good, in my opinion, for my 'bad' country but struggling to choose between 4 songs for my 'good' country eep.

I doubt we'll get any extra players, so if you want an extra country tomorrow you can send me a message! I'll be dividing the extra countries among those who want an extra country. Some of those will be pretty good, some of those will not be pretty good. No take backsies!

Can we ask now? I think I might need an extra country.

EDIT: Yay 5000 posts. What a lovely way to mark the milestone.

For my good country I found something that probably wasn't very risky, then found something which does have a bit of risk to it. Then I found something else which was back to not being that risky.

To be honest I'm not sure how a song will be confirmed as risky or not (probably just up to Gwen). Not sure how they will get any advantage (if that is indeed what they do get). They can't exactly start with extra points of something.

Anyway, will be interesting to see how that all plays out. Not really finding anything exciting for my bad country. Had them before and nothing is really standing out to me, think I may have got lucky with them in the past.

I won't have any say in it, the votes will decide whether you'll get an advantage.

The other side of this twist could be that so many people "take a risk", that the safe entries are in a minority and one of them actually wins through whilst the risky entries split the votes.

I would also hate for a generally good song to lose out just because it isn't considered risky enough. With my good country I kind of feel I have to go safe, I am probably not going to be getting them anytime soon again, so need to take my chance now.

With my bad country I have a bit more free reign, so will try for something risky there and will be signing up for a third country, so depending on how that falls I might try something risky with that one too.

We will see, I am hoping I can get my second win this year, or at the very least have full hosting rights at some point.

Sending in good music will pay off I think, It's just a bonus, I tested the formula with a couple of the last contests and I think it did what it should do.

Interested to see this. Especially your formula, I expect evidence of this once the contest is over, plus all your working out.

The twist even comes with its own algorithm, this is getting better by the day.

Although if sending in good music is a perquisite I might be screwed already what with my usual offerings.

I don't think I'll find a good song with my harder country. It doesn't help that I'm on vacation this weekend as well. But, I hope to do really well with the song I found for my good country.

I'll hand out the extra countries when you guys can start sending me your entries at 7! (Of course a few people did already because reading is super hard)
