Well on DDO I just do most of my research when it's my turn to argue. I do this mainly because I know what i want to say I just want to find the Sources to back my arguments. If I pick up a few on the way then so be it. For most of my debates I hold on to a few key sources and stats and the rest is impromtu unless it's where I'm reading cards.

It's better to have early failures than early successes. Early successes make you think there isn't much to improve, while early losses, keep you humble enough to continually improve.
