    Use of evidence: 4.5 3
    Delivery skill: 3.6 3
    Coherence of arguments: 4 3
    Responsiveness to opponent: 2 3
    Identification of key points: 4 3
    Comments: Your opponent clearly uploaded the wrong constructive. Presuming you recognized this as well, a more appropriate response than commenting on your opponent's incorrect pronouns would have been to contact the tournament organizers to correct the problem. Yes, your opponent's mistake meant that you easily won the round, but it did not make for a good debate. I wasn't quite sure how to reflect my concern on this point in the scoring, so I did so in the "Responsiveness to Opponent" rating.

    I think you uploaded the wrong video for your rebuttal. I checked with the tournament organizer who said there is not enough time to fix the problem at this point.

    You scores were incomplete. I just left them at the default values.

    In your constructive you did a good job at critiquing the evidence your opponent provided, but you didn't do much to establish your own evidence to establish alternatives.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Leslie De La Cruz Martinez

    Reason for Decision:

    I am pretty sure the opposition uploaded the wrong rebuttal. That meant that the rebuttal didn't address the proposition argument at all in that speech, and the proposition proceeded briefly address what the opposition said, and then carry through the rest of the arguments.
