Debate is a game first and foremost.
Summary of my debate style - I am a memer who really enjoys debate so just remember debate is supposed to be fun and be creative with what you do.
Please note one that I have strong opinions on what debate should be but I will not believe them automatically every round they have to be won just like any other argument. Tech>truth no exceptions.
If you want good speaks in front of me you can do a couple of things
- be entertaining either with good music good jokes etc
- explain something to me really well
- be very strategic and just smart the whole round
- in order to get super high speaks 29.5 + in front of me you really need to do something new or innovative, reading your 2NR doc on Wilderson will never get you this high no matter how good it is. A new meme or strategy is almost a guarantee of this speaks range.
do any of these things and you will def get above a 28
how to get low speaks
-making bad jokes
-doing really stupid things
-being really rude or mean. I will put here that being aggressive to the point of making your opponent uncomfortable is what I mean here.
Styles of debate -
before I get into every style just know that I will vote on all of them if I see your winning them, this is just to say what my bright line for winning the arguments tends to be
the only K I ever really read was Baudrillard, but I know a decent amount of the lit here. just make sure if your reading Lacan or something like that to explain it super well or else I will have no idea what your talking about. I will not vote on something I don't understand. Side note if your the type of person wondering whether I will like cap good or other impact turns to standard Kritiks I will.
Larp - not much to be said here Larp is about being tech and having good cards. if you have both of those things you will win the debate in front of me
Tricks - I really like tricks and don't have a bias against them like most people. that being said if you just blip storm a ton of aprioris I will probably miss some so please be clear with what you're doing. also I do not think CX is binding, so if you wanna be really tricky go for it just make sure to justify why CX isn't binding.
Theory - this is my favorite type of debate because it requires the least amount of prep. Make sure to be clearly extending and weighing your standard and please read paradigm issues. I don't get this new trend of not reading voters it really makes me mad. I will vote on anything no matter how frivolous if its won. My mentality is if its so frivolous it should be super easy to beat back.
Phil - same as k just make sure I know what the syllogism is and you will be good. if you have skep or permissibility triggers make sure to do a good job explaining why that triggers it just saying "extend this card it says trigger skep in the tag gg" does not do it for me. Side note I really enjoy theological debate if it’s possible. I promise good speaks if you make the debate interesting. Do with that what you will.
