This tournament will be double elimination, so everyone will debate at least 2 rounds. For those of you unfamiliar with the up-down-out system, please refer to the following link[1]
[1] http://en.wikipedia.org...

Rounds will be structure in the following format-
4 Rounds (All used to debate and clash, decide the rules via PM)
4,000 character max per round
24 hours to post each round
2 week voting period.

There should be no rules posted in the round, but any agreed upon rules should be sent my way via PM for accountability purposes.

These debates should have a public focus, so that voters can read through them easily and vote without the need to deliberate too much on the minor details.

Each round will be themed, and debaters will decide the resolution themselves based on the given theme. The theme for each round will be posted in this thread along with the pairings for each round.

With the exception of the primary round, all rounds will be power-matched high-low based on the the number of votes each debater has received, and the number of votes their opponent has received; their own vote count will be considered first, and then their opponents (in the case that a tie occurs)

These vote counts will be cumulative throughout the debate.

For example, if these four debates were round one-
https://www.debate.org...
https://www.debate.org...
https://www.debate.org...
https://www.debate.org...

Then round two would be as follows
Up-
brian_eggleston (27, 0) v. GarretKadeDupre (3,0)
JasonGlen (9, 5) v. LaL36 (4, 0)

Down-
Dale.G (5, 9) v. ValentineLocke (0, 3)
Maurice (0, 27) v. tennis47 (0, 4)

Out-
No one

Sso you debate about video games?

The themes will be related to video games, but all of the debates don't necessarily have to be about video games. For instance if the theme for one round was 'Nintendo' two debaters could decide on a resolution that stated 'Pokemon cards should be an official currency' as it would fit under the theme of nintendo.

I'll join.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Yeah, after I'd already posted I realized that Bossy was already second to begin with. XD
