I just came from DDO today. An intricate and sophisticated debate like "Proof of the existence of the Biblical Deity" would receive 0 votes, let alone one like this.
I've noticed that a win or loss isn't a set number of points. So how is the number of points determined? I'm guessing that it's in direct correlation to points, in which case this debate will be a huge boost for Pro.
I'm not sure if I care enough about it to debate you on it. How about a rap battle instead?
I don't think that it's unfair for new arguments to be presented in the final round. That's like saying that white can't enjoy a first move advantage in chess. It's the nature of the game. It is on the instigator to cover any possible weak points in their arguments. If this is done, then any new points brought up in the final round are liable to be ineffective or even harmful to the contender's position.
Dude, you are talking to a young guy who uses the site for Lols. Let him be. Goat is losing conduct no matter what and unless goat produces good arguments, I am voting Pro on that too because bringing new arguments when your opponent can't reply is out of order to even have those points considered (only exception is in a 1-round debate)
Not in the comments section! In the actual debate!
You just made it a tie by typing "okay then".
If in the future your opponent forfeits like this again, then make a basic argument in the debate itself, not in the comments section.
The gravitasonal pull makes it sphere.
Sorry I am not good at spelling.
If you want to win you're going to have to make an argument first.
It looks like your opponent is just going to forfeit every round. All you really have to do in order to win is make a very basic version of your argument.
Isn't the earth slightly pear shaped? It's not a perfect sphere impart because of things like mountains.
After a copy paste,
I have decided to vote Pro because he has a sexier body
no arguments on con side.
forfeit. Auto win to Pro
lmao full forfeit
Justification is null in this debate so long as I don't vote Con.
Question if anyone reads this: will the large margin by which Pro will win mean that this debate will give him more points?
lol con ff every round. Dear god...
Con forfeited every round which is poor conduct.
FF is conduct and arguments
After much deliberation, I have decided to vote Pro because he has a sexier body
This was clearly an incredibly heated debate that displayed truly masterful critical thinking skills and strategic argumentation.
On a serious note... full forfeiture by Con. No arguments made.
FF is bad conduct
Why did I even bother to vote on this?
No appearance by Con. Full forfeit.
FF. Con can't win because NASA have ruined the world but that's fine with me.
