The NAMSDC has a few key differences from tournaments you're used to.
- All teams allowed, including hybrids, unaffiliated, and clubs
- Speaker points are now the last tiebreaker
- Circuit Rating points based on performance
- Enforced topicality (theory/K not allowed)
- Specialized, monthly themed trophies
- Grand Prix system
- No division of entries between online and in-person
- Badges for various achievements
*some tournaments are automatically ending regardless of teams left in out-rounds. We will run Semis and Finals and declare a champion, unless a school closes out and prefers not to debate.
