My opponent forfeited this debate and yet I am losing. Please cast a vote and restore justice to the universe.

Thank you.

A forfeit is not an automatic win. A forfeit is deducted conduct, and nothing more.

Unfortunately, 000ike is right. If you noticed, some of us did give you the points for conduct, but if someone else gave your opponent points for arguments, there is nothing we can do about it.

Especially if it is only a last round forfiet. There were a good number of videos presented, and so enough material to make an accurate decision for "arguments." Only conduct should go to you in this case.

The other guy's first video won it for him.

A forfeit doesn't automatically mean that u will win, especially in the last round.
