It's been dry for a while now. Not me, nor Sweden, but the QW scene.
A tournament of importance to start would be great for another bump, but I think I read somewhere that signups for another Ownage start soon? That's great, perfect timing as I think everyone can feel the feeling when not much is happening but random pracs on wgz really. It's not very pleasant... Give me tournament finals with Jehar! That's something I can watch for hours. Quakeworld finals with a good commentator. No offence to Phil or adde or anyone who has ever commentated something I've watched, but Jehar is by far the best one.
Somehow people speak differently. Jehar is as "taught" how to commentate. Usually non-"professional" commentators end up saying some small thing that is going on and usually giving opinions about if an armor is up or if someone fails at something or so. It usually, in my opinion, end up incredibly boring. But Jehar, just as other good commentators commentate in a very different way and keep the viewer updated of pretty much everything all the time. Even without speaking fast!
So, if you ask me - bring Jehar to every single final in whatever tournament. Would do great for QuakeWorld. Hell, I'd even want a commentator when watching QTV of pracgames. Hehe!
Of course Jehar needs a sidekick which is important, but I think it shouldn't be the same person all the time. Adde was damn nice to hear the first times, but it got boring after a while. A little bit too repetetive (try to say that word fastly many times). Invite good players to commentate with Jehar, different for every game! Would be so great. Of course, not all players feel confident in commentating as their English might not be great, but I'm sure some people can speak proper English. Besides, Jehar does the most of the talking! So don't be discouraged because of bad English skills! Jehar will do the spam-talk and the side kick should simply comment when he feels it appropriate.
Imagine having all the top players (perhaps even a rookie or two? I know I'd definetly do it if I was asked) commentating a game each every time there are huge official games. Would be awesome!!
Bleh, now I'm gonna enjoy this hangover and wait patiently for the next tournament!! Oh and we also await Adde's duel tourney grand prix thingy!
