Round 1 has begun. You each have 3 days to select your topic and start the debate; you and your opponent must agree on a topic.

If you and your adversary fail to agree on a topic within 3 days, I will assign a random topic to the two of you from a source of my choice. You must then start (start means send and accept the challenge) the debate within 48 hours. Failure of the instigator to start the debate on the assigned topic, or of the contender to accept the topic, will result in an automatic win for the other party.

Debates should have at least 3 rounds of debating. Voting periods should not be below 1 week, and should not exceed two weeks. No troll topics, and no one-sided topics (I have full discretion to decide which topic is "one-sided" or unfair in any other way).

The Bracket

1. nikhilworld123
8. Bob13
----------------------- Semi-Final #1: winner of (1/8) vs. winner of (4/5)
4. lannan13
5. Joey888
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Final Round: winner of SF#1 vs. winner of SF#2
2. OreosAreCool
7. That1User
----------------------- Semi-Final #2: winner of (2/7) vs. winner of (3/8)
3. Blamonkey
6. Lexus

Your opponent, for clarity's sake, is the person immediately next to you on the bracket. So, for instance, Blamonkey is debating Lexus and That1User is debating OreosAreCool.

...

Have fun!

Same. You and Tej should post the Unique Topic Tourny debate topic soon, Fires/Me are going to face the winner of that.

Well, we have to do 3 debates together and since DDO doesn't allow the same person to debate each other in multiple debates at a time, it will have to be spaced out.

I sent Oreos a list of debate topics 2 days ago but he hasn't replied yet. What do I do?

Bob13 has reportedly dropped out of the tournament; looking for a replacement.
