What to do when you have no idea what they read against you?

Recommended Posts

What is the proper way to handle a situation in which you have no background info about what they just read?

Ask in CX

lol 95% of debaters are either shifty asshats that never answer your question or don't know what they just read either but because you don't know what they read and therefore don't know how to answer; they end up winning cuz you conceded their super crucial round ending FW that your hippie 420 liberal judge from a High-Horse college somehow understood

Get them into a dichotomy you can impact turn. "Do you defend the state?" If yes, PIC out of the state and advocate their politics. If no, CP to do their politics within the state and then read CTP and other state good arguments.

 

Easiest answer. :)

Try and preclude/moot their offense as much as possible - this makes the case debate unnecessary to win the round. Generic Ks (Anthro/OOO, Wilderson, etc.) that you can frame to preclude aff offense (ROTB or "Ontology first" for example) are good. DAs with generic links and exinction scenarios are good - you can just outweigh case. If you are good at theory, read a bunch of conditional CPs and bait for a theory debate. Also, a powerful 1-off K works
