This cup is not won lightly - you'll have to go through five grueling rounds of some of the toughest competition that online debating has ever seen. This is going to be the most epic tournament in online debating history.

Not only will you be debating for yourself, but you'll be representing all of DDO. You'll be facing challengers from edeb8, meevsu and possibly others (to be announced) both at home (on DDO) and away (on your opponent's site). The tab is the most intricate power-pairing tab ever used in an online debate tournament (it's no Tabbycat but you're basically still guaranteed some terrific match-ups). The tournament has been very carefully planned and will be awesome.

Why? Because experience. This tournament is all about trying something new, learning new things, and competing for a neat title.

Check out the full rules at http://www.edeb8.com...
And ENTER NOW! http://www.edeb8.com...

Have questions? You can ask me here. And good luck!

PS if anyone wants to help me organize/co-ordinate the tournament, let me know. Keeping a tournament in sync across 3+ sites will be no easy feat so I'm grateful for any help I'm offered.

This sounds amazing! I'd love to help you organize it in any way I could. Just let me know.

Should probably have noted that there's a really quick entry form on that page I linked that you'll need to fill out if you want to join. Cheers and good luck!

Of course that's assuming Blue and Raisor get their entries in. Come on DDO!

I've signed up. As 9spaceking rightly inferred, I'm at least step below the best and I'm probably not going to win, but it'll be fun.

Edeb8 vs. DDO...this will definitely be a competition to remember.

I think I'll try to help by making sure this thread stays on the front page near the top.

Less than two weeks to go until the tournament begins - do you have your entries in yet?

Entries from DDO so far:
bsh1
jh1234l

Remember, if you'd like to join, you must fill out the short form at http://www.edeb8.com...

We might have a fourth website joining the competition very soon - one which I'm pretty excited about having on board.

What is this fourth Site? Is it CreateDebate?

I don't think CreateDebate lets you make a 1v1 debate. It's always many vs many. This would cause creating match-ups for them in the tab to be impossible. As CD says on their home page, they're more of a debate forum than a formal debate site like DDO or edeb8. If this were not the case, though, I'd totally include them.

Thanks for the help offers! I'll be in touch if I need anything.

Almost at a dozen sign ups now - thanks to everyone that's signed up already. To the rest of you, go check it out! This is going to be a tournament you don't want to miss.

Good news everybody. A fourth site has decided to enter the fray - the #1 Arabic debate site, naqeshny.com. They're a bit like CreateDebate but have a cool profiling concept and, crucially, allow you to do a one-on-one debate (which is important for this tournament, where the tab is based around 1v1).

Sign up now to compete with the best from naqeshny, meevsu and edeb8 - just go to http://www.edeb8.com... to get your entry in!
