Debate is what you make it, so first and foremost ALWAYS DO YOU!!!!!

 

With that said most of my decisions are made off of what is said in the last 2 speeches, IMpact comparrison is really really important.

 

I view the debate in terms of offense and defense. Offense wins games, defense wins championships! ( except in debate)

 

I hate most theory args (unless its super creative), I hate high theory,by high theory I mean all those white dudes who were clearly high when they were writing their sh***, If you read that stuff make it as real world as possible! I hate debaters who just read into a computer screen and never look at the judge, stuff like that causes you to lose speaker points.

 

Speaker point Scale=27-30, if i give you below a 27 you did smthing really rea
