In the past the idea has been that we have two days for debate before the polls open. Since a lot of the first round is going to be one sided, I'm not going to do that this year. However, I'll give you guys the option of doing that. If you want to talk about a specific match, you can make a thread (remember that it's non-spam) called "Preview of *insert match here*" You can use this thread to give reasons why you think someone should win or shouldn't win etc. Make them in this section though so that they wo'n't be confused with the regular threads. Once we get deeper into the tournament I'll have regular pre-match debates as usual.
