Re: TDL XI: MANY A PRINCE, BUT ONLY ONE A KING - THE RESULTS

Wow, don't know how I pulled through there, let alone WIN. My debate had obvious flaws, which were pointed out expertly by each of the judges. I'll tidy that shit up next time. Fair play to STEVIE and sami for their debates too. I think the reason I was SO down on my debate after submitting it was the fear of the level of competition that each of you can bring to the table. I was demanding perfection from myself, and when I didn't get it, I was legitimate worried. You each make me step my game up, so hats off to the both of you.

Other thoughts / musings:

- DDMac and ANDRE, Thank you for showing the world how to debate. World-class. This actually goes out to Bulk as well. GODDAMN 5 STARS FROM ANDRE!?!

- TLK absolutely FEEDING SHG, as a CHAMPION does. I admire SHG's effort and gumption to take on the CHAMP (and it was a good debate, too), but TLK's on that next level shit. Well played.

- MoveMent with the win! MoveMent with the win!

- I've been noticing you, CGS and BOLO. Some upper-echelon quality AND consistency coming from both of you lately.

- SPORTS DIVISION, A MODEST PROPOSAL: Seabs, fire MrMister from the judge's ranks. Hell, give him paid vacation from all future cards. I volunteer myself to judge anything on the North American side of things. I'll research the topic, become informed (so as to make an actual informed vote), and give appropriate feedback that the competitors actually deserve (and need, if they wish to improve). Seeing the effort that every other judge puts in contrasted with that is just sad.

I was almost forgetting what the word 'WIN' meant. Seriously though, I'm stoked to have won, didn't expect it at all and I appreciate the effort and feedback from the judges, thank you.

Additionally, Oxi was being SARCASTIC with his closing line? For real??? That one line KILLED the debate, as there was no way BUT to take it seriously.

Re: TDL XI: MANY A PRINCE, BUT ONLY ONE A KING - THE RESULTS

Yeah, it goes without saying Oxi that you should never try that ever again. You can throw that line out in the middle and then conclusively argue further to indicate it's sarcastic, but to end with it? You can't assume the judges will be on the same wavelength as yourself and understand what your intention was.

As far as Andre's comments re. the level of performance, I sympathise with him. I appreciate not everyone will excel at debating, and many in particular are still developing/adjusting to what is expected of them. But I think it's fair to say quite a few undercard matches in the Wrestling Division have seen some lax entries in terms of word count, formatting and arguments. At the end of the day, it can be more annoying when it's repeat offenders because it seemingly communicates a stubborness on their part to not take on board the feedback of the judges.

Don't get me wrong, overall the standard across these eleven shows has been super and a few people have really elevated themselves primarily through TDL. It can just be frustrating when a select few seemingly refuse to take on board/listen to the feedback and then submit the same entry which gets the same critique. It does nobody any favours truthfully.

Re: TDL XI: MANY A PRINCE, BUT ONLY ONE A KING - THE RESULTS

Yea.

Like I said about my word-count though, I wanted to keep it more natural than my dojo debate, which I aimed for a high post count, which felt like a stretch. So I just ended at what I thought was fairly acceptable.
In hindsight looking at it in comparison to other debates, even in the same word-count bracket, I realised it's a bit too short. I think this next debate I will have a successful total word count.

wait wait wait, you're telling me you can manage to write a debate and not get to the max word count.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

I don't think my last one reached 800, but that's because I didn't know much about the topic.
