Just a thought, but what if we had a group of 8 people. That were to be chosen individually, and by beating these group of 8 people you could work your way up to one of Roberts Gauntlet Towers where some of the best debaters are.

So in the context of the current tower it would work like this

Elite Four (Tower)

(1) Bluesteel
(2) Mikal
(3) Raisor
(4) CP

Badge Holders

(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
(5)
(6)
(7)
(8)

At any time a Badge Holder can be challenged, and can chose if he takes the contender. If this is a serious contender he should say. When the contender can provide proof that he has beat all 8 gym leaders, he can apply for a tower run. If he looses at the tower, he must wait 3 months before attempting to climb the tower again

I am sure I can talk Tuf into possibly helping with this, so if someone where to actually beat all the leaders and the elite 4 they would get some prize or something.

thoughts?

I think it would be a fun way to add a Pokemon element and get some good debates going. It also stops me from getting spammed with constant challenges that I have no desire to take, and would help me filter could opponents.

This is a really cool idea. It would be great for the badge holders to be quality debaters of a specific topic or subject. Like one badge holder might specialize in economics, one in philosophy, one in politics, etc...

If this is happening, I would like to be the first to take on the badge holders. Other than my pride, dignity, sanity, self-worth and self-respect, what have I got to lose?

Lol, you could even have different types of debaters like religious one's, economic, etc.

Are the badge holders supposed to go from easy to hard, or all as hard as possible?

Does this system sound overly idiotic, or should I go home because Drunk?

With respect to the 4 'predetermined' 'elite four', I think that anyone who wants to be one of the badge holders must defeat any one of the Elite Four to be granted status of Badgeholder. So perhaps after the first 8, anybody who actually beats the old champion becomes the new champion, while if you get beaten by an Elite Four, you can be eligible to be shuffled into the badge holders? (Would it be too cruel to have a tourney between the 'waiting list' to make the best first choice for next badge holder?)
With regards to shuffling in, I was thinking that in a Badge Holder defeats all of the other badge holders, he can challenge an elite four for his place, while if an elite four defeats all other elite four, he can challenge the Champion for his spot? Or maybe badge holders/elite four hold their position for a period of time (say 3 months) while the Champion holds his position until defeated?
If this wall of text is too confusing, I'll make a chart later. If the idea is that bad I won't even bother with the chart.

I think this is brilliant. Only it is close to impossible for one to defeat all badge holders and elite four, especially when the elite four are so strong.

How about this? One must defeat all the badge holders. But after debating the Elite Four, if the Elite Four deem him or her worthy enough of a debater, they can get the prize, regardless of whether or not he or she defeated all four of the elite.

Also, if you wish to expand upon this further. Every gym has henchmen who you must battle first before you can battle the badge holder. Suppose a badge holder can choose one or two henchmen that one must defeat before debating the badge holder?

This is my proposal, in simplified form:

To elaborate, I think challengers should only be eligible to challenge at 2500 ELO, then eligible to challenge the Elite Four at 5000 (Would you get 2500 ELO from winning 8 debates?) Also, i think voting should be limited to the Elite Four, Badge Holders and Champion.

I like this plan though. I'll still be proceeding on with the Gauntlet tournament in the meantime, but if the guards are willing to be perma-elite four, this is sick.

I'd love to be an gym leader. Impromptu random topic live debate for a twist.

Yeah i thought so.

I just realized how abrasive what I just said sounded. It's only because there is literally no need for some weird elo requirement to challenge the elite four, because elo means nothing other than you've done a few debates. If you can beat the gym leaders, you probably stand a decent chance against the elite four, regardless of what your elo is.

With respect to the 4 'predetermined' 'elite four', I think that anyone who wants to be one of the badge holders must defeat any one of the Elite Four to be granted status of Badgeholder. So perhaps after the first 8, anybody who actually beats the old champion becomes the new champion, while if you get beaten by an Elite Four, you can be eligible to be shuffled into the badge holders? (Would it be too cruel to have a tourney between the 'waiting list' to make the best first choice for next badge holder?)
With regards to shuffling in, I was thinking that in a Badge Holder defeats all of the other badge holders, he can challenge an elite four for his place, while if an elite four defeats all other elite four, he can challenge the Champion for his spot? Or maybe badge holders/elite four hold their position for a period of time (say 3 months) while the Champion holds his position until defeated?
If this wall of text is too confusing, I'll make a chart later. If the idea is that bad I won't even bother with the chart.

This is my proposal, in simplified form:

Comments?

If there's no elo requirement, does it sound better?

I'd love to be a badge holder - I could probably do the social aspects one (particularly sports, music, and video games).

Just a thought, but what if we had a group of 8 people. That were to be chosen individually, and by beating these group of 8 people you could work your way up to one of Roberts Gauntlet Towers where some of the best debaters are.

So in the context of the current tower it would work like this

Elite Four (Tower)

(1) Bluesteel
(2) Mikal
(3) Raisor
(4) CP

Badge Holders

(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
(5)
(6)
(7)
(8)

At any time a Badge Holder can be challenged, and can chose if he takes the contender. If this is a serious contender he should say. When the contender can provide proof that he has beat all 8 gym leaders, he can apply for a tower run. If he looses at the tower, he must wait 3 months before attempting to climb the tower again

I am sure I can talk Tuf into possibly helping with this, so if someone where to actually beat all the leaders and the elite 4 they would get some prize or something.


thoughts?


I think it would be a fun way to add a Pokemon element and get some good debates going. It also stops me from getting spammed with constant challenges that I have no desire to take, and would help me filter could opponents.

Perhaps a ELO cap would be favorable to avoid a badge holder that eliminates the vast majority of competition, how about 3,250?
