I could use some clarification on final rounds, specifically ones where the rules/conditions specify that there can be no new arguments.

I understand no new evidence, but what exactly are we supposed to do without forming an argument? Just pure impact calculus? (I did look into that on my own)

Any help?

Thanks guys and hopefully this is my last annoying newbie issue.

It means that you cannot bring up new clash points, essentially. So if you don't talk about economics, you can't bring it up. That's essentially what it means.

If your opponent presented new arguments in the final round, it can be necessary to address them. If not, it's usually helpful to recap the main contentions and why you either won them or demonstrated their irrelevance.
