If DDO were a disease, its mortality rate would be 96.3%

There are 4566 people who have completed 3 or more debates
http://www.debate.org...
(152 x 30 per page plus the 6 left over = 4560 + 6 = 4566)

And there are 122882 people who joined this site
http://www.debate.org...

so 4566 / 122882 = .0371 which equals 3.71%
100.00 - 3.71 = 96.29 = 96.3% of people dont make it past 3 debates before 'dying', which means that DDO has a mortality rate of 96.3%

==========================================================

If you make it 5 debates though, the number of survivors drops down to 2359, which divided by 122,882 = .01920 or about 1.92%

100.00 - 1.92 comes out to 98.08, or about 98.1%

So if youre reading this and have completed 3 -5 debates are more, then congrats, you survived a disease that kills 96-98% of its victims :D

So, are you suggesting that the only cure is to debate, or is the cause of death debates?

Hmm, that latter part seems strange. I have a 97.6 percentile, and completed 16 debates (lost 2, tied 1). That means there are at least 2.3% higher than I, which doesn't fit with 1.92% who survived 5 debates...

Huh. That's odd. That's about the mortality rate of the souls of people who watch 'Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo'. Coincidence?

DON'T LISTEN TO HIS LIES! THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS DDOITIS! IT'S A LIE ENGINEERED BY THE DDO ELITE (if they were to exist) TO SCARE PEOPLE INTO A FRANTIC "DEBATE TO SURVIVE" MENTALITY THAT WILL INCREASE THE NUMBER OF NOOBS OPENING DEBATES, WHICH INCREASES NOOB SNIPING POTENTIAL FOR MEMBERS OF THE DDO ELITE (should they exist), LEADING TO AN ELO GAIN OF UNPRECEDENTED MEASURES. THEY COULD TAKE OVER THE SITE IN A SINGLE FELL SWOOP! DON'T FALL FOR THE TRAP! RESIST!

I think the desire to debate is the disease and the all those that have left are those that have been cured of the desire to debate. So far, 96%+ are cured fairly quickly.

I think the desire to debate is the disease and the all those that have left are those that have been cured of the desire to debate. So far, 96%+ are cured fairly quickly.

If DDO were a disease, its mortality rate would be 96.3%

There are 4566 people who have completed 3 or more debates
http://www.debate.org...
(152 x 30 per page plus the 6 left over = 4560 + 6 = 4566)

And there are 122882 people who joined this site
http://www.debate.org...

so 4566 / 122882 = .0371 which equals 3.71%
100.00 - 3.71 = 96.29 = 96.3% of people dont make it past 3 debates before 'dying', which means that DDO has a mortality rate of 96.3%

==========================================================

If you make it 5 debates though, the number of survivors drops down to 2359, which divided by 122,882 = .01920 or about 1.92%

100.00 - 1.92 comes out to 98.08, or about 98.1%

So if youre reading this and have completed 3 -5 debates are more, then congrats, you survived a disease that kills 96-98% of its victims :D

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.
