PREFACE

I think that, with the noob tournament going on, it would be nice to run a parallel tournament for some of DDO's best debaters, who can be loosely termed the "DDO Elite." I ran this idea past Blade recently and he agrees this might be fun.

I've long wanted to do this tournament set-up, and I hope it comes to fruition! The idea would be to pit high-ELO debaters against one another in a sudden death tournament. Initial seeds in the bracket would be determined by ELO (high-low), as that is an easy and objective means of doing so.

Individuals are eligible to compete if they have an ELO of 3,900 or more at the time they sign up. This will allow everyone on the first two pages of the leaderboard (plus some) to be eligible.

I will try to find some dedicated judges for the tournament, but I'd prefer to keep the voting open to anyone who is willing to vote so long as they provide a solid RFD. I would like to do this because I know that tournament judges don't always have the time to get around to every tournament debate, and I wouldn't want any to go unvoted. Please PM me if you'd like to judge (do not post here.) Thank you!

I'll leave sign-ups open for at least 5 days (maybe more) and if we have at least 8 people, I'll host the tournament.

Good luck, and please sign up!

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

Going back to school next week. Won't have the time for even normal debates.

I'm cutting myself off from pretty much everything debate over the next several weeks (unless I happen to win my debate against phantom), so unless this gets started sometime after September 18th, I'll have to abstain.

I don't have internet at home still which would mean it would be rather challenging to research and post the arguments required. If it changes before the start I'll think about joining but as for now I can't.

I might join. I start back college tomorrow, with a fuller, more challenging schedule than I had either semester last year. I want to settle in and see how much free time I have. The main problem I'd have is time flexibility.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.
