ATTN: NOOBS

If you are my noob, I expect you to reach out to me. Bring me questions, your cases, etc. and we'll go from there.

My help is conditional on you making a good faith effort. It is not my job to write your case for you; it is only my responsibility to guide you in the process of learning and developing this new skill.

I am more than willing to help you, but I will not do the work for you.

How did you come up with the mentor and the opponent pairings?
I will change my sig weekly. Week 4.

Fun fact of the week
Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

Joke of the week:
Nerd 1: "Why can't you trust atoms?"
Nerd 2: : "Cause they make everything up!"

I've got no problems in fact my current opponent is good. I just want to know how you paired us with our opponents and mentors.

I paired opponents whom were close in Elo/skill level. As for the mentors, that was random.

I can give everybody a perfect pairup. If you do well, you'll advance.

Out of curiosity, under what circumstances will replacements be needed? Would a failure to debate not just end in a forfeit?

I have 4 replacements signed up. I already used #1 due to one of the contestants de-activating their account. You are #2 on the list. I just had another contestant tell me they may not be able to continue. I told them to let me now by tonight. If they are unable to continue, you will take their place :)

Yeah, some of them either A) Decided they can't do it. Or B) Not responding to me at all..
