The best debate tactics are when you know what you are talking about. You know your topic inside and out. When you don't give them a chance to argue with you or you have so much so say that you know your right.

Con

Freestyle structure, 750 Characters. Welcome to DDO.

Pro's apparent claim is that the best tactic to use in debating is to know your topic. I will argue why studying your opponent's side of the issue to infer what your opponent's arguments will be is a better tactic to use in debate. With that being said, explain why you are correct using the severely limited character space allowed.

Good luck! This should be mildly fun.

Why should someone, tell you what to pick for your debate pro or con? Not to mention that we are sapost to be talking about the best tactics to debate.

Con

In a debate, pro and con take opposite sides surrounding a resolution or propose opposing resolutions and stick to them. However, since this is a matter of opinion, I'm arguing why the tactic I propose is better.

Knowing your opponent's arguments makes refutation a breeze, making your side far more telling. If you know or have a good idea of what your opponent will argue, your own arguments will be far more compelling since they effectively clash with your opponent's. Thus, you would gain control of the entire logos of the debate.

Merely knowing your side of the issue would result in a debate much like Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham.

Your right I should have been con.

Con

In regards to this topic, whether or not you are con is irrelevant, since no resolution is readily apparent other than that which invites both sides to choose a tactic or a host of tactics to argue for. As a general tip, it is best to not surrender because it eliminates every chance you have at winning debates (in DDO). With that being said, Pro forfeited; if you wish to vote, take that in mind.

Good luck in DDO (and increase the character limit).

Pro should have first instigated the debate with the tactics that he/she deemed best, and then tried to affirm that they were the best.

Personally it's a matter of opinion.

Should the debater acting as Con try to refute you or offer what he or she thinks is the best tactic/strategy?
