Debate Information

Dimensional Debate Matrix (DDM): Can you escape?!

Why "Dimension"? Each dimension represents the depth and complexity of debate topics and the game's expanding universe.

Goal: Ascend through 10 Dimensions by winning debates. Reach Dimension 10 or be the highest level player when the game ends to win.

How to Play

Starting Point 

  • All players begin in Dimension 1. Topics must be debated in the relevant sections of the site forums; not here. This space is for polls and poll discussions. (This setup may change depending on feedback). When you decide to play this game, your challenge should be formatted as: "I challenge [Opponent] to a [Tier] tier debate on [Topic]. [Reference to the Debate Matrix]."

Dimensions and Tiers:

  • Each Dimension has three tiers: Green (Basic), Blue (Intermediate), Red (Advanced).
  • Players can choose any tier within their dimension, but progression to higher tiers within the same dimension offers more prestige.

Ascending Levels:

  • Win a debate in any tier to advance to the next dimension.
  • Winners from each previous dimension compete with each other in any tier to level up to dimension 8.
  • In dimension 9, all winners from the previous dimension must compete in the advanced tier. Rankings are determined by vote counts. 

Debate Challenges:

  • Players can either challenge or be challenged.
  • Debates occur within the same Tier and Dimension.
  • Topics are chosen randomly or by choice.

Voting Mechanism:

  • Everyone can vote on debates. For structured voting, out of 10 points: 4 for quality, 3 for sources, and 3 for presentation.
  • Ties result in a rematch with a new topic.

Conduct Rules:

  • Personal attacks result in downvoting and level freeze.
  • Report harassment to moderators.

Hall of Fame:

  • The first to reach the 10th Dimension is the ultimate winner, but there will also be recognition for the top 3 or top 5 participants. Another game will soon follow, giving other members a chance to win.
  • The winner receives:
    • Premium memberships
    • Discord Nitro
    • [Other possible prizes Deemed fit either by me, you or both]
