Hello! I"m excited to be your host for the Spring Regular Tournament! After having a lot of fun in the last regular tournament, I am more than happy to be hosting this one! My duty will entail organizing and overseeing everything; to make sure everything is going just fine. If anyone has any questions about anything, you can voice them here or PM me.

Rules
1) In order to make sure the tournament gets by on time, there must be some time restrictions. When you are assigned to your opponent, you will have 4 days to come up with a topic, and start your debate. If for some reason you and your opponent fail to decide on a topic and start your debate, I will assign you and your opponent a random topic from idebate [http://idebate.org...] If you refuse to debate the assigned topic, you will be kicked from the tournament.

2) If we end up with an odd number of competitors bye-rounds will be given out randomly. A bye-round being free advancement to the next round.

3) This tournament will be single-elimination power tournament. Single-elimination meaning that one loss and you are out; and power meaning that pairings are decided based on Elo. The person with the highest Elo will go against the person with the lowest Elo.

Criteria to sign up
In order to add your name to the list you need to have met of of these two criteria

Have completed at least 10 debates on the site.

Or

Or have participated in another tournament (Beginner's, Regular, etc..)

If you meet one of those, feel free to sign up!

But those idebate resolutions are horrible. I'd suggest you pick from past LD/PF/Policy topics [http://www.speechanddebate.org..., http://www.speechanddebate.org..., http://www.speechanddebate.org...].

The chance that it will even happen is low, and I can't fix it now. I will do that in future tournaments tho

In that case, /out

The topics framed there are horrible, and it's easy to just say "I've made a revision, pick from here." But whatever -- it's your tournament.

Revision to Rule 1

Instead of using idebate for debate topics in the case of undecided pair, I will use a random past speech and debate topic.
