Hi-Rez Studios finally figures out how to eliminate the infamous "skiing" glitch
Ever since the release of the original Starsiege: Tribes in 1998, players have been exploiting a glitch which allows them to glide or "ski" very quickly across wide-open terrain, thus earning an incredible boost of speed.
However, it seems that after 13 long years, the developers over at Hi-Rez Studios have finally figured out how to eliminate the glitch. How will this discovery effect Tribes: Ascend? Developer Don Zubis (whose high-level de-bugging skills made this discovery possible) said there will be no more skiing!
