Okay, DDO'ers, hang onto your socks, because I'm hosting a tournament! The structure and rules are as follows (NOTE: By signing up, you agree to follow these rules—breaking them will have you be replaced!)

THE STRUCTURE:

1. There will be two divisions of four (4) debaters each, with a total of eight (8) debaters.
2. In the first tier of debating, ALL 8 debaters will be debating a resolution.
3. THE RESOLUTION WILL BE CHOSEN BY ME (Don't worry, I'll try to make them fun).
4. I will also choose who is Pro and Con, so please only sign up if you can play Devil's advocate.
5. This makes for a total of four debates happening, two (2) in each division.
6. After the first tier, the two winners in each division will debate in the same way.
7. Finally, the winner of each division will debate each other in one final championship round!

THE RULES:

1. As soon as we have our debaters, I will let you know what division you are in, and who you are debating. Whoever I assign to be Pro MUST instigate the debate within one (1) week from the time the first tier is announced. The same goes for the next two tiers.
2. Debates must have at least three (3) rounds, but no more than 4.
3. Unless both debaters agree on an alternative and both say they agree, the debates should have the standard 72 Hour period for posting arguments, and max amount of characters (8,000).
4. Make it so that voters MUST leave a voting comment. This is non-negotiable.
5. The voting period can be as long as both debaters agree on, but know that I will call the debate after 3 days or so.
6. If you think there was an unfair vote/votebomb, talk to me.
7. Even though I have a stricter set of rules, have fun!

If you have any questions, please ask them before putting your name on either list.

If you want to be in the tourney, put your name here:

Oh, and as a note: Your number doesn't matter. Your division and first opponent (from the same division, of course) will be randomly assigned.

Thats how real debate is done. Also that this doesnt happen more on DDO is one of the sites biggest shortcomings I believe.

Okay, so, I'm waiting for darker to clarify in PM whether he's a replacement or a debater--if he's the latter, we'll only need 1 more person.

From what I've seen of the people who have signed up, I'm sure we won't need replacements, but, it's always good to have 1 or 2.

As excited as I am for a blind resolution, random Pro/Con tournament, the choice of resolution is going to play a huge part in determining the winner of each round.

True. Very true. However, I think it'll be a nice challenge to go in blind on a resolution.

Agreed. If I get morality, I feel confident. If I get a legal topic, well that will be interesting.
