ArenaNet set the bar pretty high with last year's Commando class for Guild Wars / Guild Wars 2.

@Ken from Chicago Whoa, the Commando's back at Embark Beach! Rubi tweeted the Moahawk had returned but, well, you know, the date, but she wasn't joking.

MMO-wise, FFXI's Gymnast reveal featuring CowCow is pretty hilarious.

It's early..lolz at the author..

New Zealand started their April 1st full 12 hours ago.

You west-coast americans and going to continue until I wake up tomorrow morning.

The cruelest April 1st joke on Internet is that April 1st doesn't happen on April 1st.

I thought the "RAISE your expectations!" line in the description for Blizzard's Supply Depot game was cute.

Holy crap, HiRez's joke was really good:

http://www.hirezstudios.com/hirezwp/?p=1900

"Today, Hi-Rez Studios announced that they have finally identified and corrected the ‘skiing bug’ within the popular Tribes gaming franchise.

The infamous bug was introduced in 1998 with the release of the original Starsiege: Tribes. A defect deep within the game’s physics subsystem allowed players to slide or ‘ski’ very quickly across wide-open terrain. For over 13 years, and across numerous Tribes sequels, this exploit has been used by players to gain incredible movement speeds – earning Tribes a reputation as the World’s Fastest Shooter.

Now, thanks to the debugging skills of Hi-Rez developer Don Zubis, skiing in Tribes has been eliminated.

“No more skiing! Tribes players can now travel at the more comfortable walking speed found in other modern shooters”, explains Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer. “With this bug finally behind us, our dev team can move onto new gameplay mechanics including Super-Slow Walk, Go Prone, and the highly anticipated Crawl.”

The release date of Tribes: Ascend remains April 12, 2012. And Hi-Rez would not confirm whether this bug fix would indeed make it in time for that release build.

There remains significant risk that, on release day, Tribes: Ascend players will be able to go very, very fast."

I think the supply depot from Blizzard is the clear winner this year. Because it makes fun of the Mass Effect 3 endings while still being a sweet joke on its own.

The thing I like about blizzards April Fools jokes over all is they aren't just pranks or jokes. But are things that you might actually want to see done. The best pranks are half joke half reality.

"Multiple endings, each influenced by your choices and color-coded for your convenience! (Further epic endings planned for post release as downloadable content.)"

OH SNAP

I did have a look on Blizzards website today to see if the whole Mists of Pandoria had been a giant joke and they were going to annouce a massive gotcha and reveal the new expansion has nothing to do with Pandas what so ever . I wonder how many people did the same thing .

On a side note if aliens did ever want to invade the earth this would be the best day to do it .
