Sadolite easily. He is so good that people decided to hack into debate.com and remove nearly all the votes in favor of him on his debates.

Oh yeah, and . . .

Since, I am new, is there any way can tell me what "+1" means?

Too hard to decide. It's a handful of people.

I've been reading Tatarize's Debates, Sodolite's Debates, and even i-am-a-panda's Debates and think they're all great.

Charles15 is a newbie that joined three weeks ago, and I like his debates, his organizational style is good. For long term debaters I like the skeptic

Well, first of all congratulations on your 2nd place. I just got first in student congress. And, after viewing sadolite's debates, I must agree.

Before she got banned I think it would be a tie between Maya9 and GodSands. I mean have you seen how amazingly good they are.

I would say its a cross between LM and Yraelz. Beem0r was pretty good too. Don't forget Kleptin...

But alas, this new generation of DDO-ers don't know those people.

Nobody.

I'm clearly the best debater but I'm not the best by far. Therefore there is no "by far" "best debater". Oddly enough I'd say MoonDragon613 is way up there. He's since closed his account but for raw debating power he was a force to be reckoned with.

Its not that fair, actually.
I got a forfeit in LD and Regular, and expect a forfeit in round 2, as my opponents are not active. But I just got really lucky, as soon as I get a GOOD opponent, i'll probably lose. =(

Back to the original question, I must say LM.
I'll get by with a little help from my friends.

I propose a tournament to decide this issue of who's the best the percentiles are confusing and favor experience over skill.
I will start a topic in this forum to set it up and give explanations and take entries.

THERE IS NO LIMIT TO # OF ENTRIES! JUST A DATE TO ENTER BY!

I don't know . . . InfraRedEd is pretty good at that.

RE: Panda's selection to this title...

No.

RE: Sadolite selected to this title...

Why don't you just pick InfraRedEd?

I like Roy, Skeptic, and Puck.

We seriously need a new design for a leader-board.

Given what standard?
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Just take (wins - losses); the person with the highest numbers will be at the top. :P

There should be a voting system somewhere, too; not for debates, but rather for who everyone likes most; like, I hate to say it this way, but in the same way that people would vote for Prom King and Queen, users ought to be able to vote for who they believe to be the top debater, maybe say, once a month. Just a half-baked idea.

Good choices. I don't know enough about Puck to say if he's any good, but he seems eloquent. Roy is definitely one of the best. I also nominate alto2osu. LM also knows what he's doing. Kleptin deserves a nomination because of his awesome win ratio.
