Who's got a reputation for being a good debater when they really aren't?

1) F-16: Lost a whole lot of debates, many of them to not-so-good members and newbies so the low ELO is not surprising. Usually loses debates when challenged by good debaters. For whatever reason people seem to think I'm good despite the evidence (ELO) showing otherwise. Don't think there's an active members who has lost as high a percentage of debates as me.

Please add lists of debaters who you think are overrated and explain why. Here's your chance to put someone in their rightful place!

2) Mikal: Whilst I would be happy to lose to Mokal, his Elo is a huge exaggeration of his ability. He is constantly noob swiping and is apparently considered the best debater on the site (by some) just because of his high Elo.

2) FourTrouble: If I ever beat a noob, it's only because they forfeit. They're usually winning the debate before that moment, so I'm just lucky. The forfeits keep me and my ELO looking good. Sometimes, good debaters forfeit too, like Mikal in my prostitution debate or Yraelz in the drunk driving debate. I only win against forfeiters. But at least it gives people the wrong impression about my skill.

If you'd like a vote on your debate, please send me a link. I'll do my best to offer a sufficient RFD in your favor.

Also: If you'd like to vote bomb a debate and need help crafting a sufficient RFD, let me know.

All the time your soul is craving and longing for something else. And in vain does the dreamer rummage about in his old dreams, raking them over as though they were a heap of cinders, looking in these cinders for some spark, however tiny, to fan it into a flame so as to warm his chilled blood by it and revive in it all that he held so dear before, all that touched his heart, that made his blood course through his veins, that drew tears from his eyes, and that so splendidly deceived him!

I quite liked Zarroette after a while but I think she's pretty overrated as a debater.

It seems to me that she was only really rated because she gets into arguments, occasionally insults people, and says controversial things.

How are you supposed to evaluate who's overrated without a reliable benchmark to compare against?

DDO's problem is it doesn't determine who's a good debater in the first place. You can't say who's overrated if there's no good ratings to begin with.

No, FourTrouble, you don't suck.... shut up.
