This is just a plee and one that I hope juggle will eventually implement into the site. I really think it would be a great add on to the site. The ability to chose a partner in a debate(not actually make a team per say). Also a feature that automatically assigns topics and brackets for tournaments. Maybe its own section

Each could be awarded their own individual elo and leader board, apart from the 1v1 elo.

The tournament section would be tricky but could be done something like this. Add a drop down for tourney at the top. Set your criteria for creating or searching for a tourney. You cold add individual elo as a requirement or number of debates .The creator of the tournament could actually name the tournament and assign the number of people in the tournament along with round times and guidelines. So like 4, 8, or 16 people. So if you did 4 people it would be like

(1) X
(2) Y
(3) Z
(4) A

these contenders will be randomized and matched

X vs A

Y vs Z

The winners go on the final round. It could be an automatic database of compiled topics 100+ that the rounds are chosen from randomly. Each person is randomly assigned pro or con with a random topic.

11 easily spottable mistakes in two posts... In January, let's debate. Your win streak needs to be ended, and if you haven't lost a debate by then, it might as well be to me.

I have 3 debates open, a 50 hour a week job, and college. I debate whenever I have time these days. Only reason I took 3 was because of a weekend off. You are way in the back of the line man, but if i get a chance sure. I still owe thette a match on the death penalty, roy a match, and a rematch with justin moffat before I even take on new challenges.
