This was an interesting read. As a whole, I'd say the anarchist and not saying categories are home to the most well-rounded and impressive debaters.

I remember from my own statistics that the ideology with the highest average of percentile and win ratio was the Anarchists by a long shot.

Be interesting to see if the results were significantly different if Elo rankings were used instead of numbers of wins. I suspect it would change a lot. Number of wins puts a premium on being earnest.

There should be a tournament where Other, Undecided, and Not saying battle it out on the issues.

Lol. I didn't even think there were 10 progressives.

Judging by the forums, you would think so.
