Greetings fellow advocates of spaceship violence,
I would like us all to raise a glass and toast to the passing of a dear friend. Well… by friend I mean a long standing bug / feature / mechanic (delete as appropriate) of Faction Warfare game play.
Some of you may know it by the name of “Hans Sliding” though more may know it as “Gate Sliding”. For those unfamiliar with either of these terms, to following links will shed some light on the matter.
Since Into The Abyss hit TQ gate sliding has not worked on FW gates. There will be arguments for and against the mechanic. MHO is that gate sliding enabled some amazing conflicts to take place inside the FW plex environment and it should continue to be a feature of the game. I’m sure others will feel equally as strongly that the “Hansploit” should never have been a thing in the first place.
o7 Hans Slide, I will miss you.
