This tournament is engineered to help new members of DDO get orientated to the site and learn how to debate well. Each participant will be assigned a mentor to give them advice on debating, assist in crafting arguments, critique their rebuttals, help format, etc. Now since this tournament is intended for beginners, only beginners are allowed to sign-up. To qualify, you must:

Have an ELO of 2,500 or less
Maximum of 10 completed debates
Been on the site for less than 3 months

As I am the host, I will have the final say in who can and cannot sign up. I expect to have 6-8 members sign up, but the more the merrier! This will be a single elimination tournament, meaning if you lose once, that's it. Please keep in mind that signing up for this tournament is making a commitment. If you are going on a trip soon, or are extremely busy with work please do not sign-up for this tournament. Save us the hassle of arranging a replacement when you forfeit. Expect to put about an hour of work typing up a response for each round, every 3 days. Anyways, I highly encourage anyone who is new to debating, or new to the site to sign-up for this tournament. It will be lots of fun!
