I have been a member of this website for nearly 6 months. I have yet to participate in a tournament despite intending to. It just seems that I am always late in finding others doing them. That stated, I am an impatient fellow. I would like to participate in a Debate tournament.

I am looking for at least 7 other members.

To qualify all I ask is that all who participate have voting privileges and vote on each others debates in the tournament. We can develop more of the format and such if people show interest in participation.

Perfect, As far as what topics to be debated, I left that vague so as to not keep people from wanting to debate. Once we are paired up we can figure that out.

That's okay. We all just have different prespectives and such. I just shape it like the NBA playoff bracket though the 2-7 match-up and the 3-6 match-up should switch places, but it's about the same.

Official Bracket: For round one.

1: Wylted
8: Lannan13

4: Philocat
5: Nymphomanaic

2: Kasmic
7: Geo

3: misterman
6: That1user

If anyone drops first round 9spaceking can take that spot.

Remember that each debate has judge style voting for the other members in the tournament. Please keep the debates to four rounds so as to mitigate overly long debates. Other than that Agree with your opponent on a topic.

Round 1 starts on Monday the 5th.

Please past links to your debate to this thread.

If you need help finding a topic let me know.

If anyone has an issue with this format, let me know.

Cool, the one problem with me when I face Lannan, is I have a hard time giving a crap about winning. I'll try to focus this time.
