I’m currently a varsity PF debater

she/her

dorescaalice@gmail.com (for card sharing)

NOVICES: take everything below with a grain of salt, debate the best you can, and have fun!

General:

- tech>truth

- I will always disclose, unless told not to

- Run what you want, as long as it's warranted

- If you bring me bubble tea before the round, i'll up your speaks by 0.5 :)

Things I want to see:

- Off-time roadmaps & signposting

- Trigger warning if your arguments could be sensitive

- You need to start frontlining in 2nd rebuttal

- Weighing, especially in summary and final focus

- Interaction (aka, actually RESPOND to your opponents' arguments)

- Time yourselves

- collapse, don't extend stuff you know you can't win

Things I don't want to see:

- "Bruh homies out here having an asthma attack while reading cases." Don't spread. This is pf.

- Obviously, don't be rude in cross

- New arguments in final focus or 2nd summary. This is abusive; your opponents don't have enough time to respond.

- Skewed cards

- Bringing stuff up in final focus that wasn't brought up in summary

- DON'T just read card after card. You need to analyze and explain how they prove your point

- Discrimination

Speaks:

30: god-tier

29.5-29: great

28-27: average

26-25: comprehendible

Below: oops something went wrong :(
