Renegade has now officially switched to the community-run XWIS servers. Here's the official announcement from Crimson at the Renegade forums
It's official! Renegade players are now directed to the XWIS service instead of Westwood Online. Just remember that you don't have to do anything different to connect to XWIS. Just select the "Westwood Online" option in your Renegade client and connect as always.
Along with this transition, I am very happy to announce that Blackhand Studios has partnered with Strike Team to support the Renegade XWIS server. As part of this partnership, BHS will be equipped to handle several types of support issues, as well as communicating more effectively with the community through the MOTD seen when players log in.
We are very confident that this transition will turn out to be a great thing for Renegade. We will keep the Renegade Wiki updated with information and answers to your questions as they arise.
In closing, I want to extend a HUGE thanks to the following people who made this all possible: Olaf and DonCarlo at Strike-Team, Apoc and Pete L. at EA, and Scorpio9a who worked with Olaf to get the NAT bug fixed.
