Dear community,

After more than 6 years, EvilWhiteDragon and I (StealthEye) have decided to step out of Tiberian Technologies. Development, support, PR, and management require a lot of time, and we are no longer sufficiently interested to spend that amount of time on Renegade, especially since the shutdown of the BlackIntel Renegade section. As we do not want to continue as partial, inactive, or undependable team members, we decided to step down. We have been planning this for quite some time now, and thought that the 4.1 release would be an appropriate moment. After today, expect no more official involvement of us in TT and other Renegade development. We will still visit the forums occasionally, but will certainly be a lot less active.

With our resignation from TT, we stop developing for Renegade. We are proud of what we have delivered with 4.0 and 4.1, and the work we did as BlackIntel mostly before TT was founded. We believe that our efforts had a significant positive impact on Renegade, and helped it to counter cheaters, hackers, and bugs. We also believe that new features like the map downloader helped to keep the game interesting for many.

We do regret that the development of the first public TT-release took so much time. We know that it was a long wait for the community, but it was a long wait for us as well. We feel that for 4.0, the main problem was that there was no clear leadership and no (time) goals. We have done a huge amount of work, but in hindsight, maybe we should have done a smaller amount of work faster. While developing, we saw the interest of developers, testers, and the public decrease, especially after 4.0's first release. For 4.1, we chose to be involved only in bug fixes, necessary changes, and the necessary preparations for release, and not in adding functionality.

We always aimed for high quality software and for the community support to be as large as possible, meaning no regressions, only improvements, and no core game changes. This turned out to be incredibly time consuming, because there was always someone opposing even the smallest change. 4.0 was often delayed significantly because of this. We never dropped our quality goals however, and are proud of TT's successful, high quality, stable, well-supported, and well-accepted software releases.

A big thank you to our fellow and former TT team members and to everyone who supported us, BlackIntel, or Tiberian Techologies, including contributors, private and public beta testers, bug reporters, server owners, and other players. You helped us, motivated us, taught us, and enjoyed with us the wonderful game of Renegade! Thank you all for the great times!

StealthEye and EvilWhiteDragon

Thank you for ALL of your help StealthEye and EvilWhiteDragon over the years towards the Renegade community.

You guys have done so much for us and the game it's incredible, we have really lost two major people from TT. It's a shame to hear that you won't be doing work on it anymore, even more so to lose a ASM coder and a coder that worked so actively.

I hope to see you around still and wish you all the best for the future!!

Thank you for all the hours of work you've both put in as well as all the help you provided to Renegade players both in public and private.

BlackIntel was like a breath of fresh air in the Renegade community and I think most of us remember BIATCH and the help it provided in finding cheaters.
You guys had the skill and attitudes to help the community move forward and you did. Joining TT was perhaps inevitable as it was/is the main force for improving the game.
The work you did is something you can be proud of. TT has brought Renegade to another level, the map downloader alone was something the game needed since it was released. Not to mention all the various bugs that tormented players for years on end.
You were passionate about the game and made it better for all of us.

Farewell.

Thank you for everything you have put into this game, and everything you have helped me with personally, too.

Both good guys, and both a loss to Renegade.

As a player going back as far as Renegade Demo days, I truly appreciate all that you have done. You both have always been class acts and a big part of why Ren is still going today. Thank you.

All good things must come to an end but not without much to celebrate. I still remember installing BIATCH for the first time and being elated that we had something now in our toolkit against cheaters. The contributions made by BI and yourselves is greatly appreciated and has helped extend the lifetime of this game beyond what any of us could have hoped for.

All the best and kudos to whatever you apply yourselves to next!

Sad to hear but I know this day will come for everyone; it is just a matter of time.

A sincere thanks goes out to the both of you. Your contributions to the Renegade community have been far greater than most.

Best of luck for whatever you will pursue next!
