Going Postal: Answering Counterplans
Aligned with CDL Benchmark 28:
Offense, defense, and impact calculus against negative off-case arguments
designed by Péter Puklus for Prezi
The affirmative can run Disads! (or turns)
Make sure it doesn't link to your affirmative
Don't forget the 3 parts: link/uniqueness/impact
Short and sweet

Weird CPs:

Add on Advantage
The perfect time to bring out a new advantage
Make it one the CP can't solve
Short and sweet
Link (to Net Benefit)
Advanced Affirmative Strategy
Always run a permutation!
Don't force the judge to choose
Combine plan and counterplan texts
Write out the text
Weigh the benefits of multiple perms
Be ready to debate:

Look to theory blocks for arguments, but write your own
Set up just enough that you could win
Don't read blocks too fast
Violation, standards, voter
Be prepared to give a 5 minute 2AR on theory
Status of CP
Net benefits
CP text
Solvency ev

Status of the CP
The conditionality debate

To the net benefit, the counterplan does link.
Dear Debater:

When you hit that counterplan, remember to:

Use Cross Examination
Generate Strategic Options in 2AC
Use 2AC frontlines
Use your Aff. Case
Deal with Net Benefits
