I am so very curious here at year ten when you got into Renegade and what made Ren a distinctive experience over the 10 gazillion other FPS that have come and gone.

I'll start:

2002 - General Release
Ren's story, the tight community, destructible bases and the ability to go lone wolf and win a game were key for me.

Most commonly known nick: KIRBY098

I have never ever had an issue that the graphics were less than perfect, the reality factor low or that support was missing.

GO!

December 2005 i got it in a Command and Conquer set for Christmas. I didn't start playing til after the new year though in 2006 hence the "06" in my name.

Fell in love from that moment on even though I had no clue of what i was doing being like 13 years old. I have not stopped playing and it got more exciting with each new thing I found (TS, Forums, Clan Wars) and just making friends with people as I play to make the game more fun!

That brings up another interesting thing about ren that I never stopped to consider.

I never really had any interest in online gaming until it came out. Prior to this online westwood games were crud. (Sole survivor or engi rush TS anyone? Angry )

Now that I think of it, one of this game's "features" is either a super skilled lone wolf or team coordination to break through defense with a liberal application of luck that no one is in the buildign you enter.

It was almost a secondary game once you survived the trip there, then entered to plant c4 and avoid being killed.

Game designers take note...

I played some casual comp stomp games with random players (and my nephew) on RA2 online, but Renegade was the game that really got me hooked to online gaming.

Edited option #1 for 2001 Beta. I remember being a forum member waiting for general release while you beta primadonnas were telling us how awesome it was.

I still have the original disks from 02. They are beat up, and I really should burn a copy.

The kids have instructions not to touch.

I tossed the envelope, but I kept the beta disc. I also have my Renegade t-shirt. Not sure if anyone else has one of those, since it's just a gray t-shirt with the Renegade logo embroidered in light silver on the left breast.

I'm still using my original CDs, same for all my other C&C games. My nephew broke his Renegade CDs ATLEAST 4 times.

Good replies so far and an interesting data population to date. I truly expected to see a heavier weighting at the release date for "The first decade", and certainly didn't expect as many betas as there seem to be.

Hopefully they will throw a .jpg up showing the beta bling.

I was inspired to reload ren into my newer win 7 machine this week and finally got it running after spending a good amount of time finding the latest scripts 4, CP2 and XWIS /Strike Team registration. I think dental surgery would have been more pleasant, but now it's done and I am back in.

Played the campaign in 2002, but started playing online when I got a broadband connection which was 2 years later.

So I voted for 2004.

Yeah that was an interesting time. We had just got DSL where I lived when I started playing. A lot of people back then had serious latency issues as the net started getting seriously rolled out.
