Specifically, how do points in a debate translate to leaderboard points?

Voting points make no difference. 

Essentially, what happens is that when one debated wins, their current score - and difference between them and their opponent is taken into consideration in determining the amount of points you earn.

For example, Type1 had super low points at one point, around 1240. Winning against him would earn you only a few points. Losing against him would lose you a lot of points.

Think of it as awarding more points when winning against people you’re not expected to beat. And losing more points against someone your expected to beat.
