Thank you everyone who partook in this tournament, it went very smoothly! You all did a awesome job. Also, thank you to all the mentors! Also, I would like to thank Fire_wings for co-hosting this tournament with me, he has been very helpful, and was eager to learn. :)

Final:

Picsbad (YYW) vs. Bob13 (YYW)

Please have your debate started by 2-11-16. If you fail to start your debate, I will appoint you a topic, along with your positions. Good luck!

You might want to give one of them an alternate mentor.

Uhm, no? That was just how it worked out. Anyways, I asked another member to mentor instead.

That's actually a great exercise for the mind. I love debating myself, playing devil's advocate, etc., those are the challenges that make debate fun because you are pushing yourself to go further and further as you dissect each argument and rebuttal that comes to mind.

Indeed.
