theta123 Posted February 28, 2014 Share Posted February 28, 2014 Congrats Ren-X team for making a splendid, original remake of Renegade, a game i played for...years. First on n00bstories, then towards exodus when the other servers went wacko. Seeing renegade players again is great..But seeing some people running around in absolute chaos.... Its just worthy of a million dollar scientific research.. But for now, i think we ren vets should all post and share our advices, tips and tricks for those who are currently in need of it. Vehicles and engineers/hotwires/techies: New players often dont understand that you always have to go engineer/hot/tech when you grab yourself a tank, arty of APC. Emergency repairs can asure your safe return to base and when your vehicle is destroyed, you can go out and repair friendly vehicles. This is Key in surviving the battlefields of renegade/X. DOCTOR!!= Fighting in those tunnels with infantry? one hotwire/techie can act as the medic of the team keeping everyone in the fight. This was something often overlooked in the origenal renegade, but it was something i did Alot and it kept the team at the front lines, not shippering back to the base to refill their precious character wich they just spended money on Do not underestimate the Free classes= They are free, fun, and they give away very little points when you get killed. 15 IIRC. All of them can quickly deal 15 points of damage and it helps you save up for important stuff later Snipin's a good job= Most of the folks went havoc/sakura in the origenal renegade because they were overpo...i mean powerfull. Some brave man, found it their purpose in grabbing a deadeye/black hand sniper and hunt these bastards down by killing them with one placed headshot. Humiliating them in the process. Its important to win, but its more important to have fun and humiliate! Shotgunners= Barracks down? hand wiped out? You are all scum! maggots! cowards! If you choose to abandon all hope... Change tactics...Grab yourself a shotgunner....And let them come to you.. Because at close range, No infantry class is going to survive that shotgun blast in the face. Stealth black hands and nukes= They are not OP. People in origenal renegade were efficient and effective SBH counters...So you can be one aswel. One disarmed nuke delivers 300 points...And i have won many times with points as GDI because Nod went spam ga-lore with nukes. SBH and nuking requires teamwork. Because Even one hotwire defending the base can stop a single SBH/Nuke and you get nice points out of it. This is not Battlefield, nor call of duty modern whorefare. Teamwork is essential. Be that one man who scouts the base with a female hotwirez (wait whut) to hunt down those nasty SBH's. Use those mines to make sure that they cannot enter the building. Organise a friendly neigbourhood watch to take down those pesky bastards.. Improvise! For example...Buy an APC..Place Remote C4 on it. Refill and start scanning the base. Found the nuke? No SBH in sight? exit the APC, blow it up (or let the SBH enter it and THEN blow it up!) and defuse that nuke! Size matters= One mammoth tank can wipe out an entire Nod battalion Size does not always matter= A mammoth can be quickly killed without support tough. Dont be egocentric around kills. Join the mammoth repair crew today! What do you need? no experience! just grab a hotwire and jump in that cozy second seat. Organize rushes=Sometimes, it is key for nod to win, by organizing a rush. In Renegade, stealth tank and flame tank rushes were very effective if properly excecuted. Especially when nobody on GDI expected what was coming towards them. Just now on Walls_flying, we destroyed the entire base with flametanks with merely 4 flame tanks. Stealth tanks have big advantages aswel. They can even destroy the AGT with 4-5 Stanks. Do not post suggestions for radically changing the games mechanic= New players are often posting stuff in chat and forums about "improvements".. Improvements wich lead to clones of already existing shooter games wich are already very unorigenal and saturating the market(and pretty much destroying it). This is renegade X. the remake of Renegade. We do not want another Battlefield/call of duty game. We want this game. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
