As of 10:01PM EST my win ratio is 33.33%
We will continue the debate as if it stays 33.33% the whole debate.
I Pro will argue that my win ratio should indeed be higher.

1) The following debates are debates that I should have won.
http://www.Debate.org...
My opponent argued for my side, and then forfeited his next and final round.

http://www.Debate.org...
I was winning this by about 7 points... until last week.

http://www.Debate.org...
I supplied far more arguments, many of which my opponent was unable to refute. My opponent also forfeited his final round.

http://www.Debate.org...
My opponent was convinced by me during the debate. She told the audience to "Vote 4 Labrat228 he's a better explainer and deserves to win!" And then forfeited her next round.

http://www.Debate.org...
He forfeited every round but his first one, which contained 1 sentence.

http://www.Debate.org...
Forfeited every round.

The above debates are the more obvious wins by me, if you would like to check out the rest please go to http://www.debate.org... which also contains some well deserved losses. Good Luck Opponent.

People can vote for whoever they want to vote for. Just because you thought you did better on those debates doesn't mean you should have won. People have the right to vote for who they want to and so they do.
And just because you think your win ratio should be higher doesn't mean it should be higher.
Some people may think that they should be the president but that doesn't mean they are gonna win.
Thanks for this topic and Good Luck.

As shown in R1 I have at least 4 debates when my opponent never argued. These debates are won by default, therefor my win ratio should indeed be higher than 33.33%.

"Just because you thought you did better on those debates doesn't mean you should have won."
Again, my opponents didn't argue, therefor I win by default.

"And just because you think your win ratio should be higher doesn't mean it should be higher."
I proved that it should be higher.

"Some people may think that they should be the president but that doesn't mean they are gonna win."
While running for president against an opponent, your opponent drops out and nobody hears from him again, you win.

Con

A. Obviously just because someone doesn't respond to the debate doesn't mean you automatically win because you didn't win.
B. All you did was just state reasons why you think it should be higher.
C. And the people still have the right to vote for whoever they want.

"Oh look! Labrat gave us a bunch of links to debates we can bomb him on!"

No wonder your win ratio is so low.

Now come on FeatherBoy I thought about this and you can't accuse someone for Vbombing another person like this. This is a close debate. And I hope it stays this way.
