In the game Tribes Ascend you have the ability to "ski" on terrain in place of a sprint. They explain it as technology in the suit that allows you to toggle friction allowing you to slide on any surface preserving momentum. Gravity still affects you however, so sliding down hill you can pick up a lot of speed while going up hill reduces speed. This movement mechanic is insanely fun and skill intensive but also intuitive and easy to pick up. It would make battles feel fluid, fast paced and intense allowing for high speed flanking maneuvers or launching yourself off a hill to get high above the enemy to rain fire from above. It also gives a unique opportunity to try abilities and weaponry that gain additional damage and/or functionality with velocity. I think this would really fit the overall feel the game is going for adding to the fast and mobile focus in combat. Also races across large areas would be a blast! What do you guys think, would this "skiing" mechanic work for EM8ER?
