There is a special class reserved for the best debaters. It's called the "Elitists." Whether it be from skill, age of pure activity, these debates have climbed to a high percentile.

This is a tournament with one restriction- you must be 95th percentile or higher to signup.

Something actually elitist would be more along the lines of people in the 99th percentile with a higher than 80% win ratio. You only need like 9 or 10 wins to get into the 95h percentile and that doesn't even take into account the win ratio

You may be right.

Sign up only people who have beat the people who have beaten people in the 99'th percentile.

I'm sorry, but that's unrealistic for me and I don't want to hold a tourney for people way better than me.

You only need 8 wins to be in the 95th percentile.

I think most people who join tournaments have more wins than that anyway, so this tourny isn't anything special.

I suppose I could make it a 98th percentile.

Will you, aka "Brainmaster," be debating with those who sign up?

This should be "Tournaments of Elites" rather than Elitists. Those are two different kinds of people.
in the blink of an eye you finally see the light

I don't want any joke debates either. I prefer Big Issues.

Also, you have to have at least 5 big issues filled out to join.
