I would be interested in a spot in the future tourney if a spot is still open.

*Edited to add:

I've issued a pre-tourney challenge to Argos to get some experience under my belt.

Hello to all debaters!
I am here by throwing my hat into the ring of fire by invite by my worthy opponent MemoryShock.
May the best man win (me of course)

Some good old fashioned trash talking....


I'm going to give you a good practice for the tourney, ken, so don't get too ahead of yourself.....

I want to be in this Tournament if allowed.

Is the first round of the other Tournament (Team Debate) going to be wrapped up soon, or will it even continue?

Where we stand now

The team debate series has an uncertain future at present. It's up to all of the participants to determine that tournament's future. Considering the very relaxed nature of the team debate series, if someone participating in that series joins this tournament, they can probably be given extra time in the team series so that the two debates don't interfere with eachother.


We have 14 debaters now out of a field of 24. There are 10 spots remaining open. This is the current order of priority, in case there we end up with too many fighters. This order will change slightly if people hold debates before the tournament.

Experienced fighters who have not yet entered will be inserted into the list in order of ranking (the numbers on the side)

semperfortis 12
MemoryShock 9
kenshiro2012 8

(This is where a new debater goes if he wins 2 debates before the tourney)

Skyfloating 3
budski 2
NYK537 2

(This is where a new debater goes if he wins a debate before the tourney)

GAOTU789 1

Northern

(everyone still above this line when the tournament starts gets a first round bye, assuming we have 24 fighters).

LDragonFire
dominusluciferi
GUNSINWAR
TLomon
bodrul
Sublime620

(This is where new debaters with no experience go if they haven't already signed up)


I'm going to send U2U notifications to experienced fighters to bring more of them in.

Tentative Dates
Although this is subject to change, right now you should expect the list to become final on February 14th. That gives you 3 weeks to get your ranking up and to study past debates. If it works out, then
Round 1 will begin on February 15th.

Hello Bodrul,

since you normally tend towards anti-isreal and I normally tend towards pro-israel I could imagine us two having a civilized debate over it.

ok. rather than doing a seperate debate, lets hereby request the Vagabond to line us up for the first round of the tournament with me taking a pro-isreali stance and you taking an anti-israeli stance.

You may be new to debates, but you know your stuff when it comes to arguing your side.

Looks like I found my bookmark just in time. I had been away for a few months on personal matters, I suppose I am ready.

Might also have a debate before the tourney as well.

Should be quite fun as it was last time
I am much calmer than I was before

Yes, we´d like a debate to be set up. That would be greatly appreciated.

Possible Title (to keep it general): "Isreal Pro and Con"

Bodrul will attempt to put Israel in a bad light, I will attempt to put Isreal in a good light. Will be an educational debate for us both.

I'd be up for a warm up debate if any of the new members want to practice.

Subject doesn't matter and I'll take whatever position you don't want.

Just u2u me.

Are you signed up by replying to this, could it be that easy? If so, I guess I am signed up unless otherwise stated by whomever runs this site. Rules, everyone has them, imagine that.
