What's gonna happen to Cross-X?

28 April 2018 - 11:18 AM

Given the recent collapse of the site, and it's general state of disarray/disrepair - let's discuss.

(Sides TBD) iheartzizek vs AQuackDebater / Snowball

High key this happened btw. 





Ready whenever you are. Literally whenever. Later in the week, next month. You said yourself you wanted this. Let's go.


EDIT: My K files are all better than yours. Multiple people on this site can confirm.

Real Debaters Only Pt. II

19 December 2017 - 11:37 AM

The following is for real debaters only. If any of the following apply to you, get out - 


1. Your name is Holden
2. You think the fiat double bind is not a real arg

3. You have never given an entire 2AR on Framework against the K. That's right, 2AR.

4. You have never won a round off of condo good + a judge kick.

5. You have never won a round off of condo bad.

6. You have never been asked to turn down your prep music.

7. You somehow think Dead Presidents II by Jay Z is the greatest rap song of all time what the fuck Ben smh.

8. You have never been asked to turn up your prep music.

9. PF.

10. Parli.

11. If you have never given a 3NR during the judge RFD.

12. PF again.


Anyways, now that we have weeded out the lesser debaters - feast your eyes.


Interpretation: The NEG cannot run "K's"
Violation: They read a "K"
Judge, this is a voting issue. Drop them for the following reasons
1. Education-- This has nothing to do with the topic. Camp never taught me what a ""Rhizome"'" is!
2. Fairness-- K's are cheating because they are impossible to predict, and we can lose on them even if we win that the plan is a good idea. That's unfair. How would you like it if someone read a K against you?

Where in the World is Ian Stark?

See title. CynicClinic/Ian Stark is missing. Anyone know where they at?

Small School Starter Pack

28 August 2017 - 03:27 PM

I'm back baby


I've been meaning to distribute this specific file for a while - consider this my apology for being awol from Cross-X for so long. I posted this on another thread, but I wanted to put this here because I wanted to start this thread anyways.


This isn't everything I have on CtP (not even close), but it's a good baseline file. Hopefully this helps anyone who needs it.


Expect more files like this in the coming weeks - I'm assembling what I'd like to call a "Small School Starter Pack." I met a lot of debaters at the UTNIF camp (both in CX and LD) who came from similar situations I did as a debater, starting your own program or trying to make an underdeveloped one competitive, but I was fortunate to have a lot of help with that when I was at Kealing since I got that hella thicc prep out from LBJ-LASA - not everyone has a support network like that. Consider this my way of giving back to the community that has given me so much, and making it so that people who want to get into this activity have an easier time about it.


Don't expect much topic specific literature here for a couple reasons - 


A - Snowball's already doing that with the Daily Card (and a fantastic job he's doing indeed)


B - I want this to be a place for good backfiles you can use for years to come, the kind of stuff that I've found small programs are in dire need of the most, on account of the fact that they don't have much prep-out from prior years.


C - I want this to work for both LDers and CXers (gotta look out for my own kind). I'll also be posting some LD-specific files from time to time.


Anyways, this is the first of three files I already plan to release - the other two are a Cap and FW masterfile. If you wanna request specific stuff, let me know! And if anyone wants to contribute, feel free to post stuff here, whether it's add-ons to some of my files, or completely different ones. I'm also probably gonna be writing lectures to put up here, so if you wanna help out with that hit me up! And feel free to let me know what all you guys think about this!
