We've had some interesting debates so far, but round 3 is usually where the really interesting matchups start to happen.

Expected match-ups for the next round:
TheJuniorVarsityNovice v Zaradi
FourTrouble v Wylted
shabshoral v Kasmic
UtherPenguin v RXR.
The Redneck v debatability
lannan13 v That1User
Stag will probably get the bye

Full details on the standings are on the site as always: http://www.edeb8.com...

What's been your favorite topic of the tournament so far?

Round one topic for sure. I f*cking hated the last rounds topic, no offense.

Are the emails already out?

The Darknet topic was probably the only one I liked. I would never have even considered debating any of the other ones if it wasn't in a tournament setting.

I know nothing about Kasmic so this should be fun, haha. I want to get this tournament over with asap so I have no attachments to this site.

I'm glad some of the topics made you think outside the box a little! That's a big point of the tournament.

There's 5 rounds total, so we've got 3 like them to go. Best of luck, you're leading the second bracket!

I just realized that my comment could be misinterpreted - I'm in no way saying that they're bad topics. They're perfectly good topics for a tournament. Just clarifying!

To be fair, all I did was beat RXR and win via forfeit, lol - I don't feel very accomplished yet.

Hang on - you do have two wins. Sorry, messed up the draw - you swap places with Wylted in that case.

Ooh, interesting. I've been wanting to do a serious debate with FT for a while.

RXR made it this far??
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:

It's not a knockout tournament. Everyone makes it for at least 5 rounds.

I tried that, but for some reason it just doesn't work. I tried my other 2 already.

Set it to your edeb8 email address so it goes to your edeb8 messages. If you've got the "allow external email" option set up in your edeb8 settings you should be sweet, and I can guarantee you get the message.

I hated the last round topic also, and I'm not ready for the next round until my debate receives more votes, but since I'm losing I'm obviously biased in that regard.

We already did a serious debate. It was on a very important topic.
