    Pretty sure it isn’t a joke but it would be interesting to see how speaks turn out since it is a new scale. Also, it may be unclear what an “average” debater is since all these people qualed to the TOC, but I would be interested in seeing if this new system works out.

  • Anon Debater

    Its a joke. (No, its not)

  • Dat Pool
