Hello everybody and welcome to the July beginners tournament! I'm really hoping this tournament will go allot better then last months beginner tournament. (Allot of people had dropped out)

In this tournament, there will be a maximum of 8 competitors. I will also ask 4 people who have time to be sign up as a replacement incase a competitor drops out.

Requirements:

This is a beginners tournament. You are eligible if you have under 10 debates, or have a minimum ELO of 2,500.

Each competitors will have 7 days in between rounds to come up with a new topic. If you fail to do so, I will assign you a topic. Here is a website with some ideas for your debate (http://idebate.org......) (http://www.speechanddebate.org......)

Mentors

There will be a total of 4 members. I have already asked 4 experienced, well rounded members to help mentor. I'm just waiting for conformation from 3 of them. Each mentor will be assigned 2 competitors.

If you are having any issues with you mentor, please PM me and tell me why you should be appointed a new one. I will appoint a new mentor if needed.

I'm not even talking about your perceived mistakes. The flaws in your rules are blatantly obvious.

Lannan has 387 debates done. He can join the tournament against people who are completely new to the site.

However, someone with 11 debates and a 2,501 Elo cannot join.

No, they're really not.

Can you really tell me I'm not a beginner? Some of my debates are one-round bullsh!t debates and one was non-voting and not really a debate at all. I really only have "debated" a couple times. But I cannot join, because I have 100 points of extra Elo, and 3 extra debates. Bullsh!t.

Note: I don't even want to join the tournament, I just think your rules are that bad.

Hello everybody and welcome to the July beginners tournament! I'm really hoping this tournament will go allot better then last months beginner tournament. (Allot of people had dropped out)

In this tournament, there will be a maximum of 8 competitors. I will also ask 4 people who have time to be sign up as a replacement incase a competitor drops out.

Requirements:


This is a beginners tournament. You are eligible if you have under 10 debates, or have a minimum ELO of 2,500.

Each competitors will have 7 days in between rounds to come up with a new topic. If you fail to do so, I will assign you a topic. Here is a website with some ideas for your debate (http://idebate.org......) (http://www.speechanddebate.org......)

Mentors

There will be a total of 4 members. I have already asked 4 experienced, well rounded members to help mentor. I'm just waiting for conformation from 3 of them. Each mentor will be assigned 2 competitors.

If you are having any issues with you mentor, please PM me and tell me why you should be appointed a new one. I will appoint a new mentor if needed.

No. I will post another forum in the next few days. You will then see whom you are up against, and who your mentor will be. You and your opponent have 7 days to come up with a topic, if you fail to do so, I will assign you a topic.
