What's that? Another tournament? Can it be?

Opening Argument

Is it de ja vu or this time will there be a turning of the tides?

Am I just a tornado that's about to get cooled or you the tornadoes and me the mountain you must spin around? Time will tell. Hope I don't get bitter-voted though. Please justify your votes.

I will put effort into being friendlier this time as people didn't like my tone last time.

Good luck opponents, you're going to need it.

    I liked the first tournament and had a great experience (although I uktimately didn't win in the finals).  I look forward to this improved tournament.  There are 3 tweaks that I think will make it better.
    1) topics are not random - you get to select from a list of choices. @whiteflame 's suggestion.
    2) votes require an explanation.  That's a tricky one, but on balance a step in the right direction.
    3) final round isnt 1 hour, so Don't need to stress about time commitment

  • I believe that aarong has made at least two of those changes @agsr, aarong will message debate choices and votes will require an explanation, I think that there will be a minimum word count that must be reached, but that is what I have obtained from the page.
    A good debate is not judged by bias, but in the context of the debate, where objectivity is key and rationale prevalent.

    I will try and vote in every debate in be as fair as possible.

    I totally agree I’m only here a short while but I’ve already raised hackles as I like to ask very controversial questions , so no matter who and why I fall out with here I will attempt to be as fair as possible when it comes to voting

    Good change of colour. :)

  • Let's see this Round 2, who dares take on the champ?

    Can the Shadow out-darken the whiteflame? Will Mr. Shulz find his way to conquer Corbyn and his regime?

    Time will tell...

    Fear Me

    Too many users on this site want a bite of a slice,
    Of the pretty pie called 'thinking 234'll be nice',
    Take my advice, don't gamble on it throw in the towel, chuck the dice,
    This aint luck motherf***er, this is tongue-swelling spice,
    I'm not the greatest due to haters, they're a given that's a fact,
    Imma lay you all to waste just like Round 1. I debate and the body goes SPLAT!
    I'm the one they call enforcer and you're what they call a rat,
    What you doing here in Sicily? On seconds thoughts you won't live to answer that.

  • I TELL YOU BIG BAD ROAR OF THE ALPHA LION OF THE PACK 


    ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    You know you're alpha when both round 1 and round 2 your opponent runs scared.

    This is that aura of the alpha male. I don't care if it's sexist to say I am an alpha male and am better than the rest male and female put together. BRING IT ON, IT ELL YOU STRAIGHT YOU WILL GET THROWN TO THE GALLOWS IF YOU DARE STEP TO ME!!!!!!!!!

    AHAHAHAH WAHOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAA

    Sadly someone234, you're not the only rapper on this site
    Your conduct is worse than your skills on Fortnite
    So hide your points and let burdens by
    Wearing down time to the second so you get the bye
    The challenge to the throne is coming real soon
    But trust me, I'll see it, even if its a new moon
    So trust me in the debate, I'll read between the lines
    A person never won the pregame, by posting random vines.

    I yearn for this battle.

    I was noticing an error earlier today where ShadowCorbin was not facing @whiteflame, instead, you were listed as the opponent for both debates. Was this a mistake?

  • @WilliamSchulz I am more important than him so not is wasn't. In the end he will run away just like Dee did from me.

    Just like my round one opponent did from me.

    Just like whiteflame will wish he had from me.

    I am the chosen one.

    Gotta go classic: 
  • @whiteflame Who is 'we'? You and the voting crew who are so braindead they say I had worse sources than the opponent no matter what because they can't retype their RFD?

    Sorry but I'm the CO2, your flame is going out.

  • Well, trash talking's never been my thing. You certainly have me beat on that (though I will be reporting any vote on our debate that doesn't meet the basic standards that are now being enforced on this site). But, if you want my opinion, I don't think you're CO2. With your usual brand of humor, CH4 seems more your speed, and you know what methane does to flames...

  • LET'S GET GOING BOIIIIIIIIIS AND GURRRRRRRRRRLS AND GENDERFLUIDSSSSSSSSSSSS
    WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOHAAAAAAAAAAAAA


    Primaries vs Caucuses? It's not that simple. Why not both? ;)

    Why not Caucuses only?

    Why not increase the power of the informed voter over the uninformed ballot form-filler?

    Can I change the world one debate at a time? You bet!

  • Come on whiteflame, I'M HUNGRY FOR ROUND ONE. GONNA LEAVE IT UNTIL THE LAST SECOND, BOY?


    This big black flame can't wait all day...

  • Oh whiteflame... Oh darling, best of luck on Round 2, I'm so sorry if you feel too badly annihilated I'll be sure to inject you with some painkillers. You really did try hard but I was just too smart I'm so sorry!!!!!!!!

  • I still am at a loss as to why people don't believe I won that debate but whatever happens, I'll be back next time no less ready to win.

    Sure, I'm not smirking now but if you think I'm any less arrogant you are quite mistaken. I see this as a glitch, an anomaly where for whatever reason the voters didn't comprehend the angle I took which I genuinely executed to the best of my ability. There's no one out there who (at the high level like this) gets 100% winrate in debates. People who are obsessed with 100% winrate on sites tend to (not tend to basically always) avoid tournaments with other highly skilled debaters.

    Over many tournaments, it becomes obvious who the true champion is and isn't.

    You are wrong @agsr. Whiteflame has to prove that we ought to abolish rather than fix, I need only prove that he hasn't.

    @with_all_humility is the only voter who mentally processed the whole debate and spotted how whiteflame tried to avoid his BoP entirely.

    Whiteflame can't disprove every hypothetical scenario how to fix a broken system.  If there is sufficient change to the system I would even argue if thats still the same system. Since you presented specific plan how to fix, it became your BoP to demonstrate in a reasonable way with lots of specificity how it would work and why better. Your propose changes to the system were pretty dramatic and not just incremental.  Thats just my opinion reading both sides.  
    In any case - great job, and I thought you did very well.

    I did that. I explained exactly how my system integrates Caucuses into primaries and whiteflame never explained why we ought to abolish them rather than fix them.
