They formed teams and rules, three on a team, rules which state which condition the two people(with the superpowers of course) would be in. (good health and stuff) Two referees. And the debate began. After some period of time, the referees would compare their arguments and choose the superior one. The teams worked flawlessly, each of them providing sources, references and text to back their claims. (They were from a book, they even showed scanned pages from the book to validate their arguments) It felt like the debate we never had. Anybody up for implementing something like that in our forum, because the Arjun vs T-90 is dragging on too much and I have decided, the best we could do is make people volunteer to be on whichever side they want, set some rules and let them debate. Something like this: Teams: Team Arjun: Three people Team T-90: Three people Rules: 1. Comparisons shall be between T-90S and Arjun MK.1 only. The teams may compare only the present characteristics of the tank as given below: Arjun has the ARDE gun with the old APFSDS, MTU engine, APS and APU. T-90S has the 2A46M-2 with 3BM-42 "Mango" rounds or the Indian MK-2 being the best available, LEDS-150 as bought by the Indian Army and no APU. All teething problems for both tanks are fixed. 2. Judges' decision is final. 3. No swearing or one-liners 4. No flaming. ------------------- ------------------ What do you guys think? Can we do it? Oh, and If you want to know the link of the forum and thread where I observed something similar, PM me.
