Utrecht, Stuttgart win League – Christine Simpson and Daan Welling best speakers

Seven tournaments in seven capitals (that counts Amsterdam as the Dutch one) – and we have a winner of the first season of the Debating League of Europe.

The winners will be honoured at the opening ceremony of Manchester EUDC 2014 with a nice looking certificate.

The best society throughout those seven tournaments in the Open Break was Utrecht. In the ESL Break, Stuttgart could reap the award for the best society. The best speaker over all tournaments in the Open Break isChristine Simpson, and the best speaker for the ESL Break is Daan Welling. Congratulations!

Here are the final tables:

Standings after 6 of 7 Tournaments – First Stats

Only a few days are left before the last tournament of the first season of the DLE. Time to take a look at the current standings.
Up to now, 35 societies could score pointa in the Open Break and 31 societies are on my list for the ESL Break.
The number for speaker are much higher. In the Open Break there are 90 different speakers with points next to their names. In the ESL Break it’s 88 – with Dutch and Romanian Speakers leading the pack.

Four societies can still win the league: UCD, Utrecht Belgrade and Sheffield could make it.

In the ESL-Break it is even more thrilling – mathematically, seven societies could still be in for the big win: Leiden, BBU, Belgrade, Bonaparte, Erasmus, Rossevelt and Stuttgart could be the ones.6o7_eslteams

 

 

 

 

In the speaker tab, nothing has changed to the Open Break – since there were virtually no native speakers in Belgrade (shame!), this categoy skipped one tournament.

In the ESL Speaker-Tab some things have changed. But mathematically, it is impossible for anyone to overtake Daan by now. Congratulations!6o7_eslspeakers

Three of Seven: Trinity IV start in two days

Trinity_College,_Dublin,_Ireland_(Front_Arch)In two days, the third tournament of the Debating League of Europe will begin. The Trinity IV takes place from the 27th of January to the 28th of January on Dublin, Ireland. It’s a wonderful tournament with more than a handful of amazing teams competing in it.
It is the third out of seven tournament – maybe after this one, the tables stop being meaningless and start saying something about debaters and institution. Remember: There’s lots to gain. The best societies and best speakers will be honoured at the opening ceremony at Euros!

Standings after UCU Open

And here they are: The standings after the second tournament of this year’s DLE, the UCU Open. If you have any correction, just drop me a quick message.

The standings of the Debating League of Europe

eslsoc1Note:  If a debating society has more than one teams in the top ten, only the first team will get points. The other teams get no points, but they still “block” the points for the other competing teams. If a team is made up of people who are not students, the same holds true.

Standings After First Tournament – Revised

With help of a few fellow debaters who detected sime mistakes, I was able to eliminate irregularities that had skneaked into the first version of the standings of the DLE. I guess that these are hick-ups that happen in something is new. The changes include: In the speaker tab of the DLE, speakers with the same amount of speaker points in the SOAS IV tab got the the same amount of speaker points in the DLE speaker tab. Speakers who are not students are now excluded. A similar rule holds true for the team standings, where all teams with no student in it got taken off the tab. That does not mean, that the other teams and speakers move up in points.
If you find more things that ought to be corrected, please inform me in the comments! Thanks a lot.
