During WSDC half of the motions for the preliminary rounds and the Grand Final motion are pre-released, all the other motions will be impromptu. Team Netherlands worked very hard over the last few month to be well prepared.
Each of the rounds at WSDC will be judged by 3 judges. These judges, contrary to university debating, will individually vote for the winner of a round. This means that a team can win a round unanimously (with all 3 judges) or on a split decision (with 2 judges). The total amount of wins, judges and speaker scores will in the end determine the break.
