1st April Round-up
Posted by Nat "volmasoft" F 7 years, 16 weeks ago
Well, it's that time of the year again, April the 1st, it always cheers me up when I realise that I will be able to laugh at nearly every fun and energised website. So let's get on with the show.
Please note that for all cases, I have applied a link to their title and also a total roundup of links at the bottom of the news post.
So what did GosuGamers do?
Didn't you see? Here it is:

As you can see we were supposedly bought by Google. I think this year's was a nice addition to the site, rather than gosubet, gosu this gosu that, suddenly it all became googlebet, google this and google that.
Whether it was the best, or the worst in your minds is not the matter at hand, the number of people fooled is.
Meet your Makers decided to continue our efforts on by adding more "spice" as crow puts it (link)
Google's my personal best for this year, I'm sorry but they've definitely put hard work into it and I did believe it for a minute or two, until I clicked the second link and saw the toilets.
"Google TiSP (BETA) is a fully functional, end-to-end system that provides in-home wireless access by connecting your commode-based TiSP wireless router to one of thousands of TiSP Access Nodes via fiber-optic cable strung through your local municipal sewage lines."
The Pirate Bay is a torrent website and this year they pulled out all the stops, with the recent problems with Pirate Bay trying to find a safe haven, including "Sea World", it seems that they found their safe haven in the North Korean Embassy in Stockholm.
"We are also promised immunity against foreign copyright holders and all of the crew will get North Korean citizenships."
Blizzard / WoW
As usual Blizzard chose to base their April Fools off World of Warcraft, I haven't seen a Starcraft one for a few years myself.
This year it combines World of Warcraft and Signs (the movie) and they've created a brilliant new epic item!
Every engineer knows that in order to achieve true greatness, it is imperative to always keep a clear, unclouded mind.

MyM had no offical April fools this year, crow says, as he did not like any of the ideas.
It seems, however, that one user decided to submit a news as an April Fools joke. This one was about Crow being asked to work for SKT as a news writer, not the most original April Fools but not bad.
One of the Gamingeye admins who has always been renowned for the size of his nose has decided to increase it by 140 milligrams -- of silicone.
"I have been thinking about doing this for quite a while now.
It has come to my notice that a lot of my fans like my nose, especially my Chinese ones.
So as an act of appreciation towards my fans I have implanted 140 milligrams of silicone into my nose
just to make it even more personal and intimate."
Broodwar.de decided to release their new "pimpest plays" after they were bored of waiting for SCLegacy.com's version.
Zorg [FP] created a movie for the release, avaliable here
- Please note that you need to download VLC player to watch the movie.
in.Warcraft decided to create something Blizzard has yet to do: Warcraft 4.

For all those cat lovers out there, Team Liquid has joined forces with sc2.org and ilovecats to create a very nice joke.
Have you seen the cats in the banner?
Now this one I'm not sure about, is it an April Fools or is it real?
It was posted late on the 31st of March, which could just be time difference, but they do have a website. I'll update when I know more!
