We're up to the penultimate main round of the WODC title!

bsh1 (DDO) currently leads the field with 3 points, but is narrowly chased by Ajabi (DDO), 9spaceking (DDO) and Krit (Edeb8). 9spaceking and Ajabi have agreed to a draw in R4 which will put them on 3 points also. At this point it is almost certain that bsh1 will make the final, having a perfect score and rising every round in the standings. ArcTImes (DDO) and nzlockie (Edeb8) are long shots, but they are not completely out of the competition either with each having (slim) chances of making second place in the last two rounds. Those in the top two places advance to the grand final.

Round 5, the final round, will see an nzlockie vs ArcTImes rematch, an Rebekah (Edeb8) vs cooldudebro (Edeb8) rematch, bsh1 vs 9spaceking and Ajabi vs Krit. Correct odds picking with our awesome odds picker (which you can still participate in!) has been quite consistently 50% in all debates that were not draws, which is pretty much as good as tossing a coin. The odds box has some graphs at the bottom if you haven't noticed already for you to see how well you did in each round.

Ba'al Hamon (Edeb8) finishes the tournament with two byes after a series of concessions - they will still end the tournament on 2 points despite not winning any debates, meaning the bottom 4 debaters (all drop outs) will be certain to be from ddo. Nevertheless DDO is still presently overall in the lead for the championship - but that shift alone will easily be enough to lose them their top place. Much ultimately depends on the outcomes of the remaining matches, particularly the nzlockie vs ArcTImes conflicts.

ArcTlmes has won against Rebekah, won by concession against jh1234l (DDO), and lost to bsh1. 63% of pundits on the odds favor them to win. nzlockie has won by concession against CJKAllstar (DDO), and agreed to a draw with Krit in a rematch debate they had, but lost to Krit in their first encounter after what may justifiably be called the single most biased vote in the tournament (as the lowest-rated vote on the entire edeb8 site). nzlockie is certainly very much the underdog but will be hungry for the win, with the straw poll placing him as second most likely to win the tournament overall.

Krit and 9spaceking will no doubt struggle against bsh1, but Ajabi vs Krit will be another interesting debate to watch in round 5.

Also, remember to keep nominating good votes for the voter of the tournament!

*me goes to edeb tourney webpage
"Wow, Bsh1 is number 1, impressive. He definitely gonna make it to finals."

"Lets see....good, good, the draw's fine, as long as I defeat my next opponent I can definitely stand in the finals...."

*And then--
GASP

oh, no.

No.

NO.

I don't think I will very likely survive. Already I can see the odds--94-6, very heavily skewed against my favor. Ah, life is so short. I have died against the hands of Raisor and now I will die against the mighty Bsh1. I might even decide to just concede round one instead of acceptance...but I will fight on! I will do this! I will strain to put up a good fence against Bsh! Against all odds, we just MIGHT have a tie!! *Crosses fingers and toe-fingers*
Until then, asumalyum. We shall meet again in the morning to discuss possible topics.

Because I really should have thought that through beforehand. It takes ages to publish news on there compared with forums. I'll probably add it later on.

well, with that kind of attitude...

it's not as hard as you make it out to be.
bsh1's debate style is very 'contentiony'; all you have to do is find one flaw in each of his contentions and you win ;)

and by the way, i saw the comment you posted on bsh1's profile... do NOT debate bsh1 on gay marriage.... if you want any chance of winning, that is.

I just realized - if you hadn't used your free tie against Ajabi then this would have been the perfect time to declare one.

You are now, but you weren't when the timer ran out. This happened to nzlockie in the earlier round, only for him it made him have a loss, not a draw, so be glad that didn't happen to you.
