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!

Sadly Hi-Rez's devs are a bunch of clowns. They recently broke their own launch program causing a lot of people to have to uninstall and then re-download and reinstall the games that use them.

Finally... as a real player who doesnt exploit glitches, this bugfix surely and truly is awesome
Wouldnt it be great to go from skiing to prone and still travel at 200kph'ish.
Loved the tag April Fools
Haha, funny post, you got it in before midnight. This was one of the best jokes I have seen today.
