Thank you for your patience with these cheaters while RenGuard is in development, and thank you for providing a place for gamers to play this game that's got us so hooked. We'd also like to thank the gamers who play legitimately for their patience and cooperation in getting through this rough spot in Renegade history. We got through the beacon/leave exploit, we'll get past the cheaters, too.
