      Goodbye old website

      1 week ago

      Work on creating this website began some time in June of 2004 and it was completed and launched for the public in October of 2004. We decided that rather than join the other social media websites at the time that we should carve out our own home on the internet that we could call ours.

      At the time Friendster was two years old and going strong. In fact, Google offered to buy them for $30 million in 2003. Myspace was one year old and was later acquired in July 2005 for $580 million.

      I think we made the right decision.

      The site has been sorely in need of an overhaul for a while and I'm happy that day is finally upon us. You've served us well, but it is time to move on. I, for one, welcome our new website overlord.

      Rooster Teeth at SDCC

      3 weeks ago

      If you're at San Diego Comic Con this week make sure to come say hi to us in booth 1437! Burnie, Jordan, Lindsay, Matt and I will all be there representing Rooster Teeth and we will also be joined by Alan Ritchson and Colton Dunn on Saturday! Alan and Colton will be in the booth and will also be joining us up on the stage for our panel Saturday evening at 8pm in Room 6DE. I hear we may be showing some videos at the panel....
      --edit--
      Also, did you know that Alan, Burnie, Colton and Matt will all be on the Nerdist live stage at PetCo Park on Saturday at 1pm? It is open to the public and you do NOT need a badge for Comic Con to attend! Quite frankly I'm insulted I wasn't invited but go check it out and let me know how it goes!

      Additional RTX badges and hotel rooms!!

      1 month ago

      Hey all, in case you missed the announcement, I am happy to tell you that we have some additional RTX badges available on sale now! Just go to our ticketing website and you should see weekend passes available.

      Now that you're coming to RTX, you need a nice place to stay. May I suggest a room at the brand new JW Marriott? We are holding some events there at the hotel in addition to the convention center...and this is MUCH nicer than sleeping in the convention center. Rooms are limited and the deadline to book a room there is July 15th, so act now!

      tl;dr

      RTX 2015 tickets

      4 months ago

      SO, it's that time of year again. We are ready to put RTX badges up for sale, so be sure to come back tomorrow at 3PM Central time to get them ( http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html ).

      Before badges go up for sale I want to make a few announcements to keep you guys in the loop. This year RTX is expanding. The past couple of years we have been in the Austin Convention Center which is a fantastic venue. In order to accommodate the continued phenomenal growth of RTX we are expanding and in addition to the Austin Convention Center we will also have space in the Hilton across the street and the beautiful brand new JW Marriott which is two blocks away from the convention center. We are working on finalizing hotel deals so please don't book a hotel yet. We'll have a great rate for you guys at those hotels as well as the other usual suspects we get rates for every year.

      We also are unveiling a new exclusive VIP level pass for the show. Some of these were previously offered as part of a perk package for the Lazer Team Indiegogo and we will have a very limited number of them available when tickets go on sale tomorrow. By no means does this mean that the standard pass is in any way less special than it was in previous years. The VIP level badge has always existed, we merely gave them out to friends and family rather than selling them. This year we are allowing a small number of them to be purchased. Further details about what these offer will be posted tomorrow when the tickets go live.

      If you attended Let's Play Live you'll remember you were promised a discount code for RTX badges. We will send you those unique codes to you via email tonight so that you have them when badges go live tomorrow. Make sure you check your spam folder for the email and/or add [email protected] to your address book to avoid the email going to your spam.

      Check back here or follow @rtxevent on twitter to keep up to date.

      TL;DR:
      Badges go on sale tomorrow
      Don't book your hotel yet, we're finalizing great deals for you
      There will be a small number of VIP badges for sale
      LPL attendees will be getting discount codes tonight

      Let's Play Live....more seats?

      5 months ago

      We've been at the venue all day preparing for the event, and guess what? We realized that there are twelve extra floor seats that we didn't sell!

      We of course have a few balcony seats left but we threw those twelve floor seats onto the ticketing website as well, so if you're interested go buy a ticket!

      Let's Play Live Giveaway

      5 months ago

      The RWBY team has donated some awesome items to give away at Let's Play Live next week. I am in possession of several copies of the Japanese fan book produced exclusively for Comiket 87 in December.

      1423606254_rwby_bookb.jpg

      You can find some more information about the book here if you can read Japanese. If you prefer English, Crunchyroll wrote about the book. We will only be getting a handful of these to sell outside of Japan, but we are going to give the first ones away at Let's Play Live.

      We will be giving several of these copies away at random to attendees of Let's Play Live. There are tickets still available. I'm pretty sure floor seats will be gone today or tomorrow, but the balcony seats are still amazing and have a great view.

      Let's Play Live Seats

      5 months ago

      I've been reviewing the tickets left for Let's Play Live and I noticed something interesting. The VIP tickets are currently completely sold out and the mezzanine & floor seats are nearly sold out as well. What does that mean? I think it means you guys are avoiding the balcony seats because you think they will be bad. Just in case you've never been to that venue before, let me tell you, every seat is amazing in there.

      The balcony seats are not nosebleed seats. If you're sitting there you don't need to bust out binoculars because you are still extremely close to all the action. Don't be afraid of sitting in the balcony because trust me sitting in the balcony you'll have awesome seats and you'll be there to see this new crazy show with us.

      We're only a couple of weeks out so get your tickets now!!!

      Don't forget if you're a sponsor you can get a discount code good for 20% off tickets here.

      Also we are finalizing work to send all Let's Play Live attendees discount codes for RTX 2015 badges when those go on sale.

      Oh, and in case you missed the news, ScrewAttack will be joining us for some shenanigans.

      Get tickets now!

      Not sure where to leave feedback, I noticed something after the site update that's a bit off. So far I've only watched RT Podcasts, but the way they are set up now, it's hard to get the description and who's in it before choosing an episode. Pretty minor. Just wasn't sure if anyone felt the same way.
