3. larztheloser- 2433

How is it decided who we are going to be facing within our group?

I prefer invitations to signups. It allows me to target debaters I think are most likely to stay the course and not flake out on the tourney. With signups, you can provide limitations on who can join but invitations give you more control.

I understand, I can assure you that I will stay on course however I can't assure you that I am competent enough to actually compete well.

That would be great. Also spinko, I apologise if anything I said in our battle that offended you. I have respect for you and was just doing it to entertain readers and to of course win.
