I did LD for four years on the TFA circuit. I also did Extemp with equal vigor and had a brief jaunt in Congress.
I'm down with speed so long as y'all flash me cases and stay clear. If I have to yell clear more than once, I will start deducting speaks. I'm decently familiar with Critical Lit and philosophy, but I still want you to explain your arguments like I'm a five-year-old. I'm mostly tabula rasa, but I will not stand any arguments extended without warrants. If you blip, your speaks dip (you'll probably lose the round too). I love performances, and I encourage you to run them, but I'm a harsh critic. I'm cool with theory debate and will vote off of it if the debate isn't too muddy. On T, I default to reasonability unless you can convince me otherwise. I give speaks from 26 to 29.9 based on the clarity of your arguments as well as your posturing and strategies. Rudeness will dock you speaks. Make me laugh, and I will give you an extra 0.5 point.
I'm cool with speed and theory. I'm substance over rhetoric. If you want my ballot, give me a comprehensive and persuasive framework.
Pretty much the same as LD.
I'm substance over speaking here. I don't care if you have the voice of an angel, if you make bad arguments with faulty reasoning, you aren't going to place. Also, don't yell at me; I can generally hear you from across the room. Don't BS sources, I'm lenient if you fumble dates, but I will drop the hammer on you for incorrect information.
Same as Congress with the minor caveat being, I appreciate comedy more here than anywhere else (except of course in Interp). It won't supersede substance, but it may be a decision maker.
I want to see a clear articulation of your arguments that displays your familiarity with the topic. The topics are broad, and I encourage you to be creative with your arguments and introduce new and esoteric concepts while making them accessible. In addition to proper argumentation and refutation, I want to see a good explanation. I'm peeved by filler words and would appreciate you going slow if you can remove them from your speech.
