Congratulations to the winning debaters of Round One! There have been stellar debates, and I cannot wait to see what the future brings. I have taken a break from the tournament process during Christmas due to requests from participants, but now we will return to business as usual.

Rules:

Rule 1: Every pair of debaters will be given four days to decide their topic in the opening round, and three for the ensuing rounds. If anyone fails to decide in a topic in the specified time frame, I will select a topic from the past National Speech and Debate Association list of Public Forum or Lincoln-Douglas topics, and the contenders will debate the assigned topic. Failure to abide by the assigned topic will result in an immediate disqualification, and your opponent will advance to the next round.
Rule 2: In the event of an odd number of competitors, there will be bye rounds, and I will randomly choose people to freely advance to the next round.

Debate Format:


I will try to leave most of the debate specifics up to the contenders, but these guidelines must be followed.

1. Each debate will be 4 or 5 rounds in length, and the time to post will be set at 72 hours, regardless of the number of rounds.
2. Voting restrictions are up to the debaters, but are encouraged.
3. Definitions must be supplied in the opening rounds, and both debaters must agree to them.

Here are the pairings for R2:

TUF vs. bsh1


tejretics vs. Hayd

Good luck to all competitors and may the odds be ever in your favor! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to message me or post in this thread. Thank you!

Are we preparing this structurally like an LD debate, or just debating the topic normally? I think it's standard for AFF to begin. I am okay with being AFF on this though, if you'd prefer.

You can take AFF. Let's just do a normal debate.
