Notes

a. ^ 1 2 If city fails to submit a screenshot before the deadline, the last in the draw order will replace that city's draw number. If the semi-finals become uneven due to cities failing to submit screenshots before the deadline, then a randomly selected screenshot would move from one semi-final to another and the new empty draw space would be taken by the city last in the draw order of the former semi-final.
b. ^ The screenshot was taken at the MRT Marina on the New World, which is not considered a city due to the lack of a mayor.
c. ^ The screenshot was taken on the Lab World.
