The finished debates (voting and all) came up with Roy, TUF, Larz, and you as winners. TUF and Roy are already conversing via PM on what to debate. Crappy thing is whoever you and Larz would be facing, they haven't even started their debates yet. WSA and F-59393 and DK and FT haven't even begun yet. I'm thinking about just kicking them out but that would kind of suck for everyone else given the already ridiculous amount of concessions.

My debate's almost done. Just waiting for malcolm to post the last round.

Who does the winner of our debate have the potential to be up against next?

Didn't anyone offer to be a replacement?

If not, it's only the first round so you could probably get some people. That's what I did with my 99th percentile tourney.

I say that's the luck of the draw and you just got a pass into the second round. That's what would happen in any scheduled tournament in the real world. Why should this be any different?

And, for anyone who says it's unfair, teams in sports tournaments lose at a rate which is quite high, considering their are typically a top seed in that tournament, because they lose out on the enhanced competitive nature of the elimination game in the 1st round, so while dude gets a free ride, he also comes into the next round cold and has to kick himself into gear, while everyone else in the 2nd round is conceivably already in that gear.

I do apologize to all 1st round competitors, but I am unable to vote on your debates because I lack the requisite 3 debates with which to do so.

Once this 1st round debate with Tom Phan (that would be funny if that was his real name, but I have no knowledge if it is...just playing with phantom's userid) has concluded, win or loss, my dues will have been officially paid and my voting ability will kick in, which I will use to vote in subsequent rounds (if I lose, though, just make sure to shoot me a note so that I know what's up, as I may or may not keep up with things after I am knocked out).

Give Dk a bye round and disqualify the other two. Let's keep this moving.

I am waiting for WSA to send me a challenge. Sorry about the delay but we have school/college and other stuff and before that, there were the holidays and before that there were finals, and before that midterms and so on. I apologize. But we are going to start soon.
