i am a highly formiddable debater- despite many poor stats


if you look at my percentile ranking, im 99+% ranked. it's so high, that you can count numberically, that i'm just under 100th place in the ranking. in a realm of thousands upon thousands, that is not bad at all. if you look at my ELO and win ratio, you might conclude that perhaps i aint so great. i could get into reasons why those are so low, given my laid back nature, but i'm mainly interested in focusing on the stats. also, to be honest, i'm looking for someone with knowledge of h...
