Objective To attract the sites best debaters by offering a fun low stress debate tournament that anybody and everybody can win.

Fire Wings This is an invitational tournament. If you're looking for tournament sign ups, Fire Wings is in the processs of starting a tournament. Look there.
http://www.debate.org...
I am starting this tournament sooner than I should, but since it is invitational and doesn't appeal to the same group of debaters, I think it's fine.

Rules This is by no means a complete list of the rules, just a general outline of how the debate works.

Each person will be given a list of 3 "wylted" like topics (flat Earth for example) to choose from. They must choose one and only one of those topics to debate. They may challenge anyone they wish to debate the topic against. The point is to reverse noob snipe people in most cases. The winner of the match-up will be the one who conducts the most skillfull reverse noobsnipe. A panel of Judges will score each persons debate with a ten point ranking system of the following 3 attributes.

1-10 points based on quality of opponent.
1-10 points for quality of argument
1-10 points towards overall humor

See a laid back tournament system for good debaters currently too busy or lazy to put a lot of time into a tough debate, or that just think this will be fun. This entire debate can conclude without a single person losing any debates.

Sign-ups for judges

I will need a handful of judges to judge debates on the above criteria. Ideally each debate will be judged by three judges and only three judges, but a lot of judges to volunteer will be nice so there are plenty of backups to insure everyone gets fair votes.

Judges

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Opponent sign up

Though debaters can debate anybody they want, people who need to get better at debating and want to debate the best the site has to offer, can sign up to debate here. The worse your debate abilities are the more likely you are to be chosen as an opponent.

First round of invitations have went out for the most part. The responses to those will determine if a second round is needed. If brackets are not filled out by the round two invitations, sign ups will be opened up to the public.

Debaters can choose to use the source provided or not. I have no control over what the negating side does, since they aren't tournament participants

/in for bad debaters

I have only completed a single good debate so far, and I learned a lot from it. Debating against good debaters should help out my skills a lot.

They do not need to vote on the debate and will give a 1_10 score on the folllwing criteria.

1.quality of opponent
2. Quality of arguments
3. Humor

Make sure to read and understand the rules. The guidelines are different than any other tournament ever on DDO
