Hey y'all, I just qualified to the NSDA national tournament in, (you guessed it), Policy debate! If any of you have any information as to what to expect at Nats, I would love to hear it. I'm from a fairly traditional circuit, (Eastern Missouri), and I know that Nats policy is quite different than what I'm used to. (to put it into perspective, T and DAs were the only offcase that we ran or encountered at districts). My partner and I want to be competitive at nationals, (we don't plan to win the whole thing, but breaking from prelims would be nice). What advice do you have for us in terms of preparation, strategy, or anything else? A bit of info: 1) We've been running a super-stock policy aff all year, and we crush with it, but we've basically never hit anything but T and terror, so... 2) We have a very basic understanding of kritikal debate, but don't know a lot of the theory behind most Ks. 3) We kinda suck at speed, (but can improve). So what do we have to do to have a chance to be decent at nats? Thanks a ton!
I am going to nationals and LD and was wondering if anyone knew what would happen on this topic? The popular arguments and any help you can give me. I obviously know the topic pertains to the NSA scandal, but does anyone know what will be popular or where to look for anything?
