INTRO

Welcome to round one of the official Autumn Tournament (Sept-Nov). Tej and I are happy to be co-hosting this tournament for you! These are the pairings for round one. They were totally randomized. Good luck to all contestants!

RULES

All debaters will be given 3 days to select a topic and begin their debate. If they fail to decide on a topic, a topic from the National Forensic League (aka National Speech and Debate Association) LD and PF databases will be selected and assigned to them. The hosts will use relevance, fairness, balance, and clarity to choose potential topics from those lists. Sides will also be assigned at random in those cases. If a topic is assigned due to an expiration of the 3-day discussion period, debaters will be given an extra 24 hours to start their debates. Finally, given the odd number of debaters, "bye" rounds (i.e. free rounds) will be randomly awarded to debaters; no debater will be given a "bye" round twice in this tournament.

In order to keep things progressing in a timely fashion, debaters have the following options regarding how to set-up their debates:

A. 4 rounds with a 72 hour (or less) response time; or
B. 5 rounds with a 48 hour (or less) response time.

All other formatting (voting systems, elo caps, etc.) are up to the debaters to agree upon. Hosts will only become involved in those issues should the 3-day timeframe expire, as well as a 24 hour grace period that will be granted if debaters are hung up on formatting disputes.

If you have any rules-related questions, please query Tej and I in your official tournament PMs. Again, good luck :)

R1 PAIRINGS

1. FT vs. Shab
2. Debate vs. BYE
3. Philo vs. Voice
4. Thett3 vs. Whiteflame
5. Lannan vs. Wylted

That would be a clear conflict of interest, so no.

If not, can I still do it and just have it not count towards who progresses in the tournament?

Ask the debaters for their permission.
