What happened to Renegade?


Recommended Posts

I have played since the game came out and I will go through phases of playing a lot then putting it down. I tried to pick it back up. Went on Renlist and tried to join a server and was forced to DL W3D which i didnt mind, but all they do is new player made maps.... Where are the original maps like; hourglass, island,under, canyon, city flying, etc....???!! Are the original maps dead? Do the players only want new player made maps? I cant find a server with anyone in it with the OG maps!?!?

Custom maps are on MPF. Rencorner has just a few custom maps but almost all vanilla maps except hourglass because hourglass is mostly a base-snipe fest when the AGT/OBI is dead.

 

you can get ingame and type in !rotation to see wich maps are on the server.

Similar to what rackz said, we (rencorner) are the vanilla-est Ren server with mostly stock maps, a few variations on these maps (called RXD, they are basically the same maps but with different textures and upgraded pickup weapons) and a few very selected fan maps that follow the Ren spirit.

What happened to Renegade, you ask...?

  1. Xphaze died not much after people found out Yonnie (the owner) was cheating...
  2. St0rm died cause Wilost0rm (the owner) got caught attacking the Jelly servers and received a XWIS ban IIRC...
  3. Jelly died because it got inactive somehow... wasn't really following what happened their, but the owner shut it down after their servers got too inactive...
  4. Renforums is gone because their hosting provider went dark...
  5. Rencorner is fortunately still active at certain times....
  6. MPF, is by some miracle, one of the last servers on Renegade, albeit they're very customized...
  7. TMX got inactive, but there was a lot of bitching on their forums too... (aka sniper ego's...)
  8. Black-cell was probably one of the most decent servers, but died aswell...
  9. FNfall is gone too, had read 'bout their mods being corrupt...
  10. Kamuix, not sure what happened to them...
  11. Baddog-gaming became Atomix and Atomix became dead, thanks to Xpert, who went on a ban-rampage at a certain point lol. 
  12. ... insert other servers here.

Got split and the Exodus server was born...  the shit-talking between the two was hilarious asf.

There was some big drama at the annual N00bst0ries party too at one point lmao. It involved Crimson and luv2b I believed... Too bad I can't research it anymore lol.

Kamuix returned, but now he doesnt code, he now learns modeling. (and the wanna be kamuix servers are not from kamuix himselfe)

Let's not forget Liquid being such a dick to everyone he made sure nobody would even want it back lol he played a huge part in its demise.

12. I mean, tmx is gone for the last couple of days; I don't know what that means... And with RC removing its sniper server, there are no more Renegade sniper servers as of two days ago. RC's demise has begun, I couldn't access the forums this morning.

13. Dun gaming (owned by klote1234) was the short-lived but most popular crazy capture the flag mod. It died as well, although I've seen some of the past-owners and admins still play occasionally (kill4ya2 & killar912)

14. Tsugaming gave up Ren years ago. Sean aka fl00d3d decided to host better games than Ren. There was constant drama here as well, but it was a decent community.

15. What the hell happened to CloudyServ? I remember just joining regularly with other nicknames and suddenly it was gone.

16. The n00bstories forums are still around, but they are ofc dead AF.

17. A Path Beyond, not officially renegade, is still active sometimes - but most of the games that you see where there's a lot of players are actually scheduled from their forums. The players that are 'gods' here are crap at Ren.

18. Interim Apex (dblaney's & kaskin's) is around and somewhat active; with some ex-cheaters and modding nerds plaguing the server. As with MPF, noobs that play decent in these servers are too terrified to play real Renegade anymore because they would get crushed (Abdelraman, darkzero, cocain, hunter-seeker, guard55, seif, muslium).

19. Renegade X is still active and popular I've heard?

20. Fun-fact: For some reason this stupid blackhand studio's renegade ladder is still active after DECADES of operation; and it is currently stupidly listing noobs like Techie and mr.ed at the very top. Dude, this ladder used to be THE THING that good players would aspire to before the sniper boom in 2007, and before !recs and !rank systems were incorporated in the local servers. The top of the ladder was usually dominated by the very early AOW gods like BomBzu, angel6, xxxozxxx & some members of the CnC clan.

It's a game from 2002, with tons of bugs, outdated graphics, a fairly toxic community, a ton of cheats, with servers ran by donations for no profit.
Unfortunately even modern games die fast. The new generation of gamers suck balls. All they want is to collect skins, stream their great moments for views and fame, etc...
Besides, there is nothing left to prove at ren. We all have played a 100000 matches so far, with every possible combination of sieges, snipers, handicaps, etc... Even when RenX came out, the OG renegade players just dominated that game, it was too easy. No I dont count myself as one, but still I'd rank #1 in pick up games that RenX ran when you peeps wheren't there.
Modern games update balancing every so often to fix this issue. Maybe that's why MPF does so well? Like it or not, their fans probably enjoy the new stuff that keeps coming?

You guys were throwing fits about cpu, lag, everything lately. So, I shut down everything but Mara and the bots. If you want it up, just ask one of the mods, they can start it.

As for the forum: broken on purpose, I suspended it and was trying to get the new forum host to work.

Im baffled as to how Jelly could have failed. It was still full every day when I left like 2010-2011ish? What the hell happened.

By 2015 both RC and MPF were already more popular than Jelly I think. They pretty much attracted the remaining players leaving their server regularly empty. My guess is that only temporary ren players were the base at Jelly, while the other communities had a more loyal base.

Actually Jelly lost most of its playerbase because RenX was just released and everyone went to play there for a couple of weeks. Then, after like 3 months when RenX started to die out as well, people didn't bother to play normal Renegade anymore.

Could unironically blame Jelly's downfall on that trash wannabe Renegade 'remake'.
