That means, of course, that the chances are good your debates in later rounds won't be on edeb8.

But I've yet to activate my account on Edeb8, and I likely won't be able to for several days.

That would require people's logins. I will track predictions round-by-round though, so in round 3 you'll see stats like: you've predicted 60% correctly so far, on average people have been 50% correct. Also I'm tracking how the odds of various debaters change from round to round.

And... This is a swiss system tournament?

It's not quite swiss but very close to it - the main difference is that rounds are begun before the results of the last round are known.

And yeah, you can vote on this thing too. Whatever.

I have a question: since Ba'al Hamon is almost assuredly Chosenwolff, why can't they just debate on DDO and save Ajab the trouble?

Because the system needs to be fair. The rules are that if you have an account on multiple sites you can choose any one to be your home site. I think this is probably a strategic move on his part to ensure more than half of his debates are done on a site that's unfamiliar territory for his opponent.

this is pretty much just a DDO tournament...

Members may have accounts on both. Still they're competing for the site they'd prefer to represent.

After all the other debate sites dropped out, this is basically the World Cup if only Germany and the US showed up. And Germany didn't even bring its best players. But was gonna win anyway.

This should just be labeled the "DDO vs. Edeb8" tournament. And with Edeb8 being represented by people like Jifpop and Spencerjoy, while DDO has people like Bsh1, it's pretty obvious which side will come out on top. (Sorry, Larz, just being truthful.)

I'm keeping the name because I hope that more sites will come on in future years and make this bigger. I know the system has a lot more potential than this.

I wouldn't dismiss edeb8 so easily. bsh1 is a fantastic debater, but on average one debater is hardly enough to win it for ddo. Since ddo has more competitors then statistically, if we assume a random sample, ddo should have a more average result. edeb8's may be worse than that ... or better.

I agree, the name should stay. I mean, the first Football World Cups had only 4 teams.

Since everyone here seems to be so sure, let me ask what you may find a more difficult question.

Who will be bsh1's opponent in the final?

Ajab. If he can make it past his non-philosophy debate rounds.

Yup. It's gonna be between CJK and Ajab. Either way, DDO walks away as victorious.
