(Play the music for added effect!)

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...

DEBATE!

As the flame war between the forces of STALIN and Imabench rages, a disturbance is felt in the the force. Far off on the debate page, there are no active Star Wars debates. The jedi of DDO rush to the forums, in order to bring about a new era.
The era, of the DDO STAR WARS FAN TOURNAMENT!!!

Welcome, friends, to the DDO Star Wars Fan Tournament! This will be an 8-12 person tournament, with knockout rounds, and a losers bracket. The winner of this tournament will receive a special prize. A limited edition Return of The Jedi Designer poster!!! The winner shall also be named an official DDO Jedi Master! All entrants will be named DDO Jedi Knights

Here is the poster: http://www.thinkgeek.com...

Very nice, eh?

Here are the rules.

-All entrants must have at least 5 completed debates, but there is no stipulation for minimum ELO
-All debate topics must relate directly to Star Wars. They can be about lore, production, the actors, you name it! As long as it is directly related to the Star Wars universe. Here are some examples
Han shot first
The unifying force theory is invalid
George Lucas should not have cast actor x for part y

etc.
-All debates must be 4-5 rounds, with 10,000 character limit, and 3 day reply time
-The first round of each debate will be used for acceptance, introduction, definitions, and background information. Arguments begin in the second round.
-You may not bring up new arguments/replies/rebuttals in the final round of any debate, as it is unfair to your opponent.
-Wookiepedia, and any piece of literature/media that is published by Lucas Licensing are accepted as fact, or at least, near to the truth, should there be conflicting sources.
-The will be a 10 day voting period
-The debates may be voted on by anyone, but the outcome for the sake of the tournament will be based upon only the votes cast by official judges.
-Each debate must have a minimum of 3 official judge votes cast on it to be considered valid

The winner of the losers bracket (2nd place) shall receive either a Death Star bottle opener or a Millennium Falcon bottle opener.

Time is a little tight for debating, but i can definitely judge! Seeing as all debaters are named DDO Jedi Knights, should the Judges be given a title as well?

We can only hold the competition if we recruit more for our order, Master Brian.
We must travel to the outer rim forums and seek those out who are force/debate sensitive.

Help bsh1. You're my only hope!

I'll participate & you have bsh1 to thank for inviting me. I'll probably suck since I love the movies but have little knowledge about the non-movie canon. Some debate ideas:

*Star Wars is not science fiction and isn't really trying to be, or
*Actual space battles will never resemble Star Wars space battles, or
*By definition, Palpatine led a right-wing coup, the rebellion was a left-wing insurgency, or
*Killing a clone is not morally distinguishable from killing a human, or
*Killing a droid is not morally distinguishable from killing a human, or
*Anakin Skywalker had demonstrably awful management skills and had no business being placed in any leadership position.

I've kind of been wanting to participate in a debate tournament. Though I do like star wars and have watched all the movies, I am not a hard core fan and might get slaughtered easily in this tournament. I'll give it a day or two of deciding, then give an answer on whether I will join or not.

Actually, I'd like to be a judge for this instead. Reading and voting bsh1's debate was really fun, I could vote more debates like that.

I kind of want to debate, and judge... But if I have to choose, I would rather be the judge.

I recommend having just 8 open spots, as tournaments have a tendency to last a long time, 8 debaters leaves 3 rounds, and less of a chance of forfeit's, loss of motivation, etc.

I'll participate & you have bsh1 to thank for inviting me. I'll probably suck since I love the movies but have little knowledge about the non-movie canon. Some debate ideas:

*Star Wars is not science fiction and isn't really trying to be, or
*Actual space battles will never resemble Star Wars space battles, or
*By definition, Palpatine led a right-wing coup, the rebellion was a left-wing insurgency, or
*Killing a clone is not morally distinguishable from killing a human, or
*Killing a droid is not morally distinguishable from killing a human, or
*Anakin Skywalker had demonstrably awful management skills and had no business being placed in any leadership position.

These are great. Thanks for signing up.

The tournament won't start until we have 8 competitors, which probably won't be until the beginning of February.
