TLDR: Do what you want to do and do it well. Paradigms can be more dissuasive than informative so let me know if you have any questions before the round. I've almost exclusively done K debate so more judge framing in policy v policy rounds is very helpful. Debate well and have fun!

K affs

Go for it. Affs that defend doing things in the direction of the topic tend to do better in fw debates but if your aff doesn't do that, just win why not doing that is good and you'll be fine.

T/FW

Go for it. I think T is especially underutilized against certain policy affs. For the neg, I find arguments about clash and advocacy centered on the topic generally more persuasive than arguments about procedural fairness, For the aff, sometimes its easier to win impact turns to fw but having a solid defense of your model/counter interp goes a long way in mitigating neg offense.

K's

These debates are where I have the most background and feel the most comfortable judging. The two biggest issues for the negative in K rounds tend to be link application and alt explanation. Focusing on these areas along with round framing (for both the aff and the neg) will largely determine the direction of my ballot in debates.

CPs/DA's

Make sure to explain how the counterplan is mutually exclusive with the aff and what the net benefit is. When going for the disad the negative needs to have a clear link, preferably reasons why the disad turns the case, and Impact Framing. Both the 2nr and the 2ar need to explain to me why your impacts outweigh theirs because I don't want to do that work for you.

LD:

While I've done LD, I have done exclusively progressive LD so I'm not familiar with some of the traditional LD norms. I'm fine with general theory arguments like conditionality and disclosure theory but if your strat relies on the other person conceding a bunch of blippy, unwarranted statements I'm probably not the judge for you. I'd much rather you see you win on the content of the debate than you extending a blippy 1ar theory argument so you don't have to debate the substance of the case. Go as fast as you want as long as you are clear. I'm not likely to vote on tricks/spikes and long underviews in 1acs are annoying. If the 1ac involves reading 5 minutes of preempts with 1 minute of content I’m probably not the judge for you.
