I competed as a part of El Camino College's debate team this last fall. My background is primarily in Parliamentary debate, but I also was involved in IPDA. So with that in mind, I definitely know the rules of debate and can follow you down most rabbit-hole of technical arguments you want to go for. I'll list my views on certain aspects of debate:
Structure: please be hyper-organized. I tend to favor teams who sign-post and keep things line-by-line (unless you're in IX calc)
ON/OFF Case: remember to have responses to you're opponent's cases, because in reality that is literally what debate is. I love engagement through things like case turns.
Topicality: I like it if it's done correctly. It's a tool for the neg, so if you're abusing it and it's an obvious time suck I won't be happy. Aff, remember to respond to everything.
Counterplan: I also like CPs. I'm fine with PICs and topical CPs, but just remember to explain NB.
Kritiks: Don't go for it unless the round truly calls for it. I don't like Ks. I recognize it when it's used correctly, but I value true debate.
Speed: I can follow if both teams are willing, but I was in IPDA so persuasion in rebuttals are important.
Overall, just remember to IMPACT OUT and EXPLAIN in the context of the value. Lay things out for me. Make it easy for me to want to vote for you.
