INTRO

Congratulations to all participants who advanced and thank you to all those who have competed thus far. The debates have truly been excellent! These are the pairings for round two. Good luck to all remaining contestants!

RULES

All debaters will be given 3 days to select a topic and begin their debate (begin = to accept the 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 are asked to keep voting periods at 10 days or less and 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 :)

I think, due to the forfeit, we can call Romanii and FT's debate too, and advance FT. I'll post round 3 shortly.

OK. Give them 48 hours to select a topic, please (-24 hours from the status quo).

I am going to give them 3 days...since we're on track to finish on time, and since some of the contestants are involved in the WODC, and I don't want to overtax them.
