I will try and host a debating tournament based on topics that I haven't seen (or seen very often, or debated out properly) at all on DDO. In other words, a tournament based on issues that I would like to see debated.

The rules for these debates are as follows:

8000 max characters
3 days per argument
2 weeks voting period
Minimum of 1800 ELO (can be negotiable)

I'm not exactly sure if this tournament will be a success. Hoping it will be though.

Sign-ups:

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.

This will either be a knock-out tournament but may have a loser's bracket.

The debate topics will be randomized and positions taken by the debaters will also be randomized. I will try to ensure that neither side has a significant advantage.

Debating positions can be switched if both sides agree on the swap.

Some topics will be troll topics (most of it will be a some-what serious debating topic).

Sounds fabulous.

I do, however, only succeed at 'serious' debates.

I wish to sign up. My ELO doesn't meet the requirement apparantly. I'm in the 99.7 percentile though.

Considering I know Lannan13 will take the debates seriously, I will except him from the minimum 1800 ELO rule.

Natoast, on the other hand, sorry. You don't qualify. I need people who construct stronger and denser arguments (between 900-1500 words per argument).

Sorry, but you do not meet the minimum ELO requirement of 1800.

And there is a reason why I do not mention the topics beforehand.

The participants are suppose to be able to debate on a topic, regardless of how familiar their knowledge is on the subject beforehand.

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
