Tag Team Debate Tournament #2
Created by soulcollecter34, 4 y 1 mo 28 d ago.
If you know of the first one, this one is exactly the same, just an improved version. For those who don't, a brief summary. You and one other user on this site will team together and debate other teams of 2 in a knockout tournament style to crown the first official Tag Team champions (the first one didn't go so well). This time it will have to be mid-level characters. You will chose a character form the player pool and after enough people have joined you will be randomly paired up and the tournament will begin, rules are down below. I hope this one goes much better.
You need to be logged in to post comments..
1) Don't abandon me (very easy :D)
2) Please read up on the debating rules. We want to win, right? ;)
@AkhilPDX- Spider-Man (not surprised about the choice)
Anyone else want to join?
• Definition of 'Beat': "Defeat someone in a game, competition, election, or commercial venture."
You can't beat someone if you are equal to them. That takes simple logic to comprehend
@AndreasVer, I already chose Colossus before you joined which is why you can't have him, Namor was one of your choices so I gave you that as an option and you chose it but anyway, characters such as Magneto, Loki and all the others you listened is because they are TOO powerful. Magneto might lift less than Iron Man, but his ability to affect electromagnetic fields FAR exceeds his physical limits. He is an Omega level mutant which by definition can wipe out all life on Earth at the bare minimum meaning Magneto is around planet surface levels of power, continental if you want to low ball, and this is proven as he has in the past altered a planet's rotation. Loki isn't allowed because while physically he's average, his magic is extremely powerful, as he has harmed Thor in the past. No, you can't use Martian Manhunter feats for Namor. That is the single most ridiculous thing I've heard in a LONG time for one they are completely different characters, for two, I don't care what the site says, Martian Manhunter outclasses Namor in strength, and finally you can't use that as a reason to use those feats. That's like using TOAA feats for the Flash because they have the same speed, that is a flawed way of debating and no one will take you seriously. I'm not saying anyone should, it's an analogy, knowing you I had to explain that part.
1. Each match has a time limit of 3 days, after those three days are up, the match will be scored and the next round will start.
2. If a participant is inactive for more than 1 day, they forfeit that round, and their teammate must debate for both.
3. Each debater can ONLY defend their own character, but can debate either of their opponents.
4. You must show scans for the statement you are trying to make, giving a comic book will not be counted.
5. Special scoring system for the debates will be given below this comment.
Claim without evidence- 1 point
Claim with evidence- 3 points
Debunking a claim- 3 points
Debunking a claim with evidence- 5 points
Rebuttal- 3 points
Rebuttal with evidence- 5 points
Each comment will be scored 0-5 depending on it's relevance to the topic, if it's poor it gets a 0, if it is good, 5 points, those points will be added to the base score (the points listed above). So the highest amount of points for 1 comment is 10.
Deduction of Points-
For every insult; -1 point
Comments that have nothing to do with the debate; -3 points
Useless comments; -5 points
A comment without evidence: My character has been shown to destroy planets before, and has defeated and contended with powerful beings such as _ and is multiple times the speed of light.
A comment with evidence: My character has been shown to destroy planets (link to scan) and is easily capable of massively faster than light speeds (link to scan).
Comments that have nothing to do with the debate: Well my character is similar to (random character) from (completely different franchise) and would win because that person has small similarities, and because (random political figure) is bad at what they do and is ruining (random country)'s economy where (random character) is said to live at.
Useless comments: You are wrong. My character stomps. That's not true. Prove it. You did a bad job debunking it.
