Welcome to the debaters Club people...This just for every Electricferret member to test their debating skills and to improve it. I know I need to improve mines. Here in the Debaters Club members would call out any member they want to debate one on one. They choose any characters they want to use and then they debate in the CBUB Rumbles. A good example is the debate with me and sirmethos.

...and this (see previous posts) is why we can't have anything nice.

Seriously, why create new matches to debate, when there are dozens of older matches that don't get any attention. A true debater can get thrown into any fight and come out swinging. Two people challenge each other and find a match in progress and debate.

But by the looks of these responses, it won't happen.

I'd like to see Dinsdale vs sirmtheos(probably spelled his name wrong) go all out on each other. Respectfully though, respectfully.

Just for fun...And I find strictly just one on one debates to be interesting.

I will, to a certain point, agree with Treacherous here in saying that, a true debater can go in to any match, and put in a good fight.

The point where I will contest that, is that here on EF, each individual match, has a tendency to only stay alive for a certain amount of time. And each debater is then constricted by which characters they already know. Because by the time you are done thoroughly researching a character, that was unknown to you, the match/debate is already over. Especially with the attitude towards thread necromancy.

What debaters challenging each other, instead of creating a completely new match. Is to create a new thread, specifically for their debate, starting in the OP, with a link to the match in question. So that people can click the link, and see what the match being debated is, what the rules and restrictions of the match are, etc. But so that the debate itself, happens on a thread of it's own, making it much easier for the debaters to respond to each other(providing that the spectators don't drown the debating thread with their comments), without having to click and scroll, through several pages of, to the debate, irrelevant comments.


As for a debate with Dinsdale. I would have absolutely no problem with that. As I've pointed out to Dinsdale already, he has already, in the short time he has been a member, impressed me with his debating skills.

But as with any other skilled debater, I would much rather have a debate about a deeper topic, than a simple cbub-style match. Simply because debates about deeper topics, are much more challenging, and much more rewarding to all parts.

Unfortunately, which a lot of people don't seem to realize, is that in order to debate in a match. You should be knowledgeable about both sides/characters.

You don't necessarily have to know everything about both sides(if you do, then in most cases, there's no need to debate), but you should at least have some knowledge about the 'other' side/character, and actually do your research about the other side/character.

Why? Because if you don't know anything about the 'other' side/character, then how can you say that 'your' side/character would win?


To give a slightly controversial example: If you a non-believer, and you haven't actually read the bible, then you have no business debating against Christianity. Again the general existence of a Prime Mover, sure, but not against Christianity. The same goes for any debate.

Indeed. It really grinds my gears when people debate just to defend their favored character. *cough*CORVETTE*cough* :P

There's nothing wrong with debating, purely to defend your favorite characters. As long as those characters actually have a moderate chance of winning. And as long as you have some knowledge about the opposing characters as well.
