Howdy DDO!

There seems to a noticeable lack of quality debates going on, and far too much focus on drama and other icky stuff.

Therefore, I propose a gauntlet tournament, similar to the one I believe classic robert has previously organised! Essentially, the challenger shall debate the guards in order of ELO lowest to highest. If he beats the guard, he moves forward, until he loses or completes the tower. The guards have the luxury of instigating the debate, and creating the resolution (but should discuss the resolution with the challenger, but the point is to put the challenger outside of his/her comfort zone).

PLEASE AVOID ABUSIVE RESOLUTIONS (too vague/truisms)

If you're interested, I'd like to have 7 tower guards, and a 10 judge panel.

The gauntlet tower guards will be ordered in ascending order by ELO.

Tower Guards

*7.
*6.
*5.
4.
3.
2.
1.

*Slot reserved for 4,000+ ELO guards.

Judges

1. Tyler Graham
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Challenger
1.

PM me or post here if you're interested in guarding/judging/challenging.

Should the challenger manage to pass through the tower, they will be awarded a prize equivalent in value to 20$ USD (Some rinkydink nick nack Idk, you'll love it trust me).

I'll be involved in this to one extent or another. Right now, I'm thinking guarding or judging, though I'll see which position people would rather have me take.

Actually, being the challenger would be cool, but being a simple guard is fine too.

I'll be the challenger if the High Elo debaters are the 4+ guards and there is no one else to be a challenger.

If the ELO of slots 2-3 could be between 3k and 4k that would be optimal!

Yes! The one challenger must face the tower guards in ascending order 1 by 1, and wins by reaching the top! If the first challenger fails, we may allow for a second challenger!

Bluesteel or Raisor should be the final guard. LOL

Now for the Gauntlet, is it regular Open voting debates or are the Judges going to be in the Judge type debate.
