Hello! I know we have a ranking system for the top debaters but this will be different. The ranking system does not reflect new debaters and favors older members who have simply debated more. This tournament has the implications of determining who is the best debater on DDO, period.

This tournament format will be determined by the debaters who choose to participate. I expect the best of the best to come out and get in the action. As so, I will not participate because I do not feel I rank in the that company quite yet. But anyone who is ballsy enough then please join.

This tournament will go as follows:
Members will join for 2 weeks. On April the 1st we will start deliberations on debate topics. Remember that the debaters choose what they debate in each round. Once members have been chosen after the 1st then a pecking order will be established by PLO. Top ranking member have choice of Pro or Con.

The most important thing about this tournament is that the winner will be DDO champ. We should also make a challengers system afterwards or during. Members get involved and lets make us a champion of DDO and those who are not champ, try to knock them off.

It's never going to determine the best debater on ddo though.

Being "the best debater" is completely relative. So naturally I agree.

Note the type of topics debated from each debater. No doubt the existence of God is the hardest, most metaphysical and far reaching debates. Anything said don these types of debates whether atheist or theist, is by definition a very hard claim to defend. It takes the best of metaphysics and physics... whereas topics of, "who raps the best" don't really require that much academic skill- sorry.

I like the idea of a DDO Champ who has to defend his crown every month. This would be a good way to have regular high profile debates that draw people in to judge and write ballots. It would also be a good community focal point that actually involves debate instead of drama and the weekly stupid.

A monthly tournament to defend the crown? Sounds interesting.

But I don't think a month is long enough between tourneys since they take so damn long.

It looks tempting. I am going to wait and see who else signs up though.

Also, god debates aren't as challenging as political, economic, or technical/science debates. It pretty much involves just moving words around. On the other hand, debating the viability of solar energy or a moon base is sure to involve tons of research.

That's epic. The populace of DDO could elect a champion to challenge the person wit the crown
