Worlds doesn’t have oral adjudication for rounds 7-9. The next announcement will be the actual break. So how does this work?
In each debate teams gets 3 points for a win, 2pts for second, 1pt for third and 0pts for forth. With 324 teams the cut off 32nd team will probably be on 18 points. However so will the 33rd team and a number of teams above and below the break. Therefore the final positions in the knock out rounds will be determined by speaker points.
Once the Top 32 are determined these will be announced just after midnight tonight.
After this the draw goes into Octo-Finals.
