Hello all participants, and welcome to Round 1 of the September Beginner's Tournament!

PAIRINGS:

1. AdithyaShark vs. TheDebater_101
2. That1User vs. Debate-master1
3. MisterMittens vs. SolonKR
4. The_Commander vs. ThePhrophett

MENTEES/MENTORS:

1. TheDebater_101/tejretics
2. That1User/Romanii
3. Debate-master1/Kasmic
4. AdithyaShark/Philocat
5. MisterMittens/Romanii
6.SolonKR/tejretics
7. The_Commander/Kasmic
8. ThePhrophett/Philocat

RULES:

All debaters will be given 3 days to select a topic and begin their debate. If there is a failure to decide on a topic, a random topic will be selected and assigned to them. When deciding a topic for debaters, the mods will take into account relevance, balance, and clarity in order to prevent unfairness and promote non-bias. Sides will also be assigned at random in those cases. If a topic is assigned due to the failure of the debaters to establish a resolution, debaters will be given an extra 24 hours to start their debates.

The debaters are free to establish formatting (voting, layout, etc.) as they wish, although it is suggested that the number of rounds for debates is no less than 4.

Any questions regarding the rules of the tournament may be directed at either me or Lannan.

Good luck, debaters!

Lol... tbh this looks more like a team debate tournament than a noob/mentor one.

Some of these "noobs" are pretty close to the skill level of their mentors.

VOT - you copied the Autumn Tournament format -_-

As a mentor, looking forward to the tourney!

Correction: That1user and the debatemaster-1 had a late start, but they failed to share the link with me.
