If someone has set up a debate, and asks voters to specifically vote a certain way. for example 1 point per who had the better argument.

are you obliged to vote that way? Would it be illegitimate to stick to the 7point system?

debaters have control via their voting options. But yes, it would be considered poor sportsmanship if you disregard their voting requests.
