Thank you to everyone who signed up as either a competitor or mentor. I'm extremely excited at the amount of talent and ambition among this group, and am looking forward to an explosive tournament. May the best debater win!

The final sign-ups list is as follows:


Beginners

1) Diqiucun_Cunmin
2) Hayd
3) 8elB6U5THIqaSm5QhiNLVnRJA
4) Diego_St.Clair
5) 1harderthanyouthink
6) Espera
7) That1User
8) kingkd
9) Himans45
10) Malacoda
11) ScarlettPrecious
12) Tumblrnatic

Mentors
1) Wylted
2) YYW
3) whiteflame
4) Kasmic
5) Zmikecuber
6) 1Historygenius

There's been some confusion as recent as to how this tournament will be structured. I wanted to accommodate interest as best I could, with the intent of catering to the people for whom this tournament is intended: newer members. Therefore, I expanded the capacity from 8 participants to 12, though obviously that presents us problems down the road if we were to operate via single elimination. Therefore, there will be two rounds of single elimination. After that, we'll be left with three participants, who will engage in a round robin round - whereby they will debate the other two remaining competitors - in order to determine the winner.

Round 1, which was completely randomized, is posted below. Mentors are listed in parenthesis.

Diqiucun_Cunmin (Wylted) vs. Diego_St_Clair (Zmikecuber)

8elB6U5THIqaSm5QhiNLVnRJA (1Historygenius) vs. Kingkd (1Historygenius)

That1User (Whiteflame) vs. Tumblrnatic (YYW)

1harderthanyouthink (Whiteflame) vs. Malacoda (YYW)

ScarlettPrecious (Zmikecuber) vs. Hayd (Kasmic)

Himans45 (Kasmic) vs. Espera (Wylted)

Please start your debates as soon as you can. You have until Friday, May 8th, at 11:59 p.m. (DDO time) to choose a topic and start your debate. If you haven't done so, a topic will be assigned to you.

Best of luck! Feel free to contact me at any point if you have any questions.

Cheers,

Good luck, debaters!

No, I don't fit the requirment's. I was just saying because I was chosen to replace someone in the May tournament.
Lexus maybe.
Kozu.
Shab Shoral maybe?

Shab wouldn't qualify due to his past activity and experience. I don't know the other two, but if they're interested, have them contact me.

Something when horribly wrong with your tags and removed the part about two rounds of single elimination... so I thought I'd fix that real quick. Cheers.

My opponent's having finals, and isn't on DDO much. I've created a debate using a resolution I brought up in our PM (he said 'sounds good', but didn't confirm). I hope he'll be able to see it before the deadline...

By popular demand, and out of fairness, I had to set a criterion whereby beginners would take priority over members who aren't really beginners - such as yourself, since you've been on DDO for several years, have done over 300 debates, etc. I thought that was only fair, and failure to do otherwise would discourage a lot of newbies from participating.

This is... extremely upsetting - that, and the failure of a lot of people to set up their debates or even inform me as to the status of their debates (obviously you aren't in that group, since you're at least updating me). Obviously the deadline is tonight. I haven't any real desire to move it, but I also don't want to doll out topics en masse - especially since inactivity begets inactivity, and it isn't as though cracking a whip in the form of assigning a topic will really breed a jolt of activity.. nor will extending the deadline.

I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do yet. I'll decide later on tonight when I get out of class.

Before then, I *urge* any participant in this tournament who hasn't already to make contact with your opponents and launch your debates ASAP. If you cannot, or want an extension or have some other sort of complication that will prevent you from doing so, contact me immediately. Otherwise, I may be forced to pick a random topic and flip a coin for sides - clearly, no one wants that. I don't even want that.

This is... extremely upsetting - that, and the failure of a lot of people to set up their debates or even inform me as to the status of their debates (obviously you aren't in that group, since you're at least updating me). Obviously the deadline is tonight. I haven't any real desire to move it, but I also don't want to doll out topics en masse - especially since inactivity begets inactivity, and it isn't as though cracking a whip in the form of assigning a topic will really breed a jolt of activity.. nor will extending the deadline.

I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do yet. I'll decide later on tonight when I get out of class.

Before then, I *urge* any participant in this tournament who hasn't already to make contact with your opponents and launch your debates ASAP. If you cannot, or want an extension or have some other sort of complication that will prevent you from doing so, contact me immediately. Otherwise, I may be forced to pick a random topic and flip a coin for sides - clearly, no one wants that. I don't even want that.

If you need a replacement, let me know.

That may be a viable option, yes - though obviously that person would need to be active enough to launch their first debate relatively soon. I can grant a replacement some extension, but not a giant one that throws off the entire round.

But, by all means, if you know anyone who may be interested, let me know or have them contact me.

@ Beginners:

Here's a list of past LD topics. I would likely end choosing a random topic out of this list if I were forced to assign one - though, obviously, perusing this beforehand in order to find a topic will obviate that last resort.
