*First off, this topic's purpose is to keep tabs on all the debates. This topic will constantly be updated throughout the tournament.

IMPORTANT: Due to complaints, I have gotten rid of the polls and instead found a third judge.

IMPORTANT: I have gotten rid of the page limit. Participants can now argue as many pages as they want within the 72 hour time limit

Countdown: 0 days left to debate.

What is This?
I have chosen 8 of the BD's best debaters, based on their activity in the BD and the content of their post, and have asked them to participate in this tournament to choose the BD's best debater !

Who is participating?
The 8 Participates are choppy, markua, lilnaruto_legend, _venemous_, Shadow_Minato, T-Dot, SaninlevelAloauo, and EvanGrant.

How will winners be decided?
This tournament plays out like any 8-Man tournament. Two debaters are put up against one another, each supporting a different character in the debate.The debaters will have a total of 3 days to debate. Once time is up Marceline, EarsofGod, and I, Creed-, will decide the winner of the debate. I will also include a short paragraph explaining why we chose the winner based on the content of the participant's debates. The winner will move on to the next round and be one step closer to becoming the BD's #1 Debate!

What does the winner receive?
The winner will receive bragging rights, a spot in the next tournament, and the following sig.... ARjyqSK.png

I create the match-ups, then they chose which character they want to represent in the match-up.

Agreed for the most part. Shadow has an easy opponent since there is a judge who is not that guy choosing.
Everyday 100 of low post count members die due to nosebleeds...with just one topic a day we can all help to save the lives of these members.

I don't want to post on the voting topic, so I'll say here.

You should probably bold who can post in the topic, also allowing "goodlucks" kinda clashes with NBs forum rules I believe, where you can't actually post goodluck(although its hardly enforced).

2nd, its not a big deal but I really don't like that "1st ever..." its kinda... uneeded. But thats just me. I hope the second isn't "2nd ever".

Thirdly, the page limit is kinda dumb. The time limit is fine but the participants should have as much discussion as they want during those 3 days.


I have high hopes for this, didn't even see the registration. Hopefully I can join next time around.

Well, I'm always glad to here constructive criticism. Its my first time doing this so, yeah there's going to be a few kinks here and there.

I don't think bolding who can post will make much of a difference, trolls are gonna troll. But then again its not gonna make any less of a difference, so I'll take that idea into consideration.

Well, I'm not to familiar with NB rules, I guess I should have checked with EarsofGod before posting any of this, thanks for the head's up.

Yeah, the "First Ever" thing is a one time thing xD

Hmmmm, i guess your right again, now that I look at it a page limit is kinda pointless...

There wasn't any registration, I just Pm'ed people who I knew would be interested in competing. Honestly, I didn't think many would be interested, I guess I was wrong. i'll take a registration topic into consideration next time.

Thanks for all the advice!

What do you mean? You do understand that this is not the actual debate itself.

This tournament is just like any other debate. I give the participants a topic, they chose a side, and then defend which ever side they choose.

@Marceline-lol, I'll keep note of that

Sweet, it's up!

@Kamic, nonsense will not be tolerated on this or any thread period. The next time, it will be a warning/ban. Up to you.

Good luck, guys!
There's no need to be upset. :teeth?

Thank you EarsOfGod. I just hope I get to enjoy a debate with facts thrown at me (rather than mere speculations and beliefs....).
