DISCORD INVITE LINKhttps://discord.gg/8Dn9pkk


Welcome to our first ever live debate tournament thread on DART. For those who do not know me, I am SupaDudz, Head Discord Moderator and Laision for the DART Discord Server. Today I am here to announce the first annual Discord Live Tournament.

This tournament is to boost our Discord and to have people on the site feeling connected to the Discord Moderation/Community. We felt the need to do something big and have the same impact DDO Hangouts did to the DDO Community with live tournaments and such. With willing moderation in Bsh1, Virt, etc, I was honored to host this great tournament

General Structure
  • The seeding will be determined by ELO
  • 1 will get a bye up to semis, 2 will get a bye up to R2
  • All events will take place on Discord
  • Voting will be done on DART, the debate votes will be registered on DART
  • People must agree on a topic to debate about within a time period. If not, it will be auto assigned by commissioner 
  • The finals will consist of 3 judges
Debate Setup
  • The debate will be set up into a normal DebateArt rounds structure to it. There will be a few points added though
  • The speech will be debated using the "PRO/CON" type format
  • PRO will ALWAYS have first speech, CON will ALWAYS get last speech.
  • There will designated judges for each debate. 
  • R3 is concluding statements only. NO REBUTTALS/ RECAP
Times of Each Debate
  • R1 PRO: 13min 
  • CON CX PRO: 3min
  • R1 CON: 13min
  • PRO CX CON: 3min
  • R2 PRO: 8min
  • R2 CON: 8min
  • R3 PRO: 5min
  • R3 CON: 5min
A MAX OF 5MIN TOTAL OF PREP TIME CAN BE USED THROUGHOUT THE DEBATE

  • Vote will be cast on DART via a debate section. Judge should notify when
  • Arguments will be winner selection, but taking into consideration sources, clarity, and all other things
-----------------------------------
{JUDGES OATH}: I hereforth decree that I will be a fair and honest judge to the debaters at hand and will promote fairness, integrity, and thought into my RVD. If found in violation, I am subject to punishment and will be removed of my duties. 
-----------------------------------

Rewards
  • FREE CRUISE TO THE BAHAMAS FOR 100,000K DOLLARS, YEEHAW (wait we can't do that)(we have no money)(shit ok
  • I guess then for Discord you will receive access to all chats and have a separate role that changes your color :)
  • If Mike want's to add the spinny thingy by ur name maybe he will maybe he won't
Conduct
  • Misconduct in debate/outside of debate, will result in a DQ
  • Follow the CoC on DART, Discord ToS, and Server Guidelines
Discord
  • It is very easy to create a discord account. Go to www.discord.com. Create a new account on there. Install the app onto your PC/Mac/Linux (or open web broswer but downloading it is better).
  • Use the invite link to join
  • You are all set!
I will announce times when sign ups are filled

Not the best idea to have a real-voice chat on something THIS BIG with a discord account, DA account attached to the voice and opinions conveyed on all platforms.

I'd love this if it didn't entail risk like that, I have a wonderful command of language vocally, in my opinion. Then again I do love myself a bit too much for my own good.

@RM

If you follow the ToS of Discord, you are fine. They do not check in on that stuff and only respond to VC. Many political based servers in Discord

Discord mods are not who I don't want knowing who I am IRL.

Those times are way too long. I am happy to participate if we can set our times with our opponents by mutual consent.
