This is a single-elimination tournament, with 8 beginners and 4 mentors. Mentors will be decided upon by me, so there is no need to contact me for that.

As a note, it feels weird for me to post this when the October sign-up wasn't even posted two weeks ago. Whatever. I like to start on time...

Criteria for a beginner:

These members cannot participate:

Those with over 3000 Elo.

Those with over 40 debates with a win percentage of at least 50%.

Those who have not yet been a member for 2 weeks by the set beginning of the tournament (November 1st). (Justification - we should make sure they can actually be trusted to put effort into the tournament.)

These members can participate:

Those with 20 or less debates and less than 3000 Elo

*For those with 21-40 debates with an Elo of under 3000, their win percentage must be under 60%.

I also reserve the right to use my judgement to block people from joining the tournaments, if I feel they should not qualify as a noob. (I most likely will not do that.)

---

The bracket will be randomized.

---

This shall start by November 1st (though I will try to get it in motion before then - so debating can commence by then).

Beginner

1. logical-master123 (reserved

I will be asking people to mentor. Do not ask me to let you do it.

Jeez, you sure weren't kidding about getting it started early. Sounds like fun to me, and I wish the other debaters good luck.

Yes I am, the tournament moderator and I had discussed the early start, but I did not expect it THIS early.

If I get paired with a debater as good as the debater I got paired against in the October tournament then I've lost. So far I think that you'll win this tournament.

Yep, though perhaps it'd be best if I knew what the specific requirements would be.

By signing up, you participate in at least one round. The first round has 4 debate rounds with 72 hours given to write arguments. So you'll probably have to write 2-3 debate arguments each week, depending on how quickly you and your opponent write them. You also have to engage in debate preparations.

Before the start of the round. You're given a couple days to decide on a topic and come up with definitions.
