    Greetings Raiders, Tinkerers, Harbingers, and Wardens,

    Over the past 15 years, the community created hostbots, mastered the arcane art of port forwarding, and passed down knowledge of the most popular maps. Self-solves, workarounds, and the resolute desire to keep friends playing; hallmarks of why we love this game and those of you actively contributing to its legacy.

    We’ve been working on direct fixes to those server-based problems as we addressed issues that couldn’t be self-solved beyond the codebase like widescreen support, hardware cursor, anticheat, and balance.

    We’re excited to bring these next evolutions in the restoration of online play over
