Barbara Cast & Crew

To our Sponsors

Recently, some of our sponsor benefits were taken away. We would like to begin by apologizing for this and for failing to communicate this change to you.

Our video distribution network discontinued a service which allowed us to have our videos available for download to sponsors. This happened with no warning to us and we have been in the process of trying to find a solution. Our sponsors should not have been left in the dark about this, and we are very sorry for doing that. We are super appreciative of your support and we are working on getting this feature back as soon as we can. As you can imagine, migrating ten years worth of video content is a daunting task.

In the meantime, as a "thanks for understanding" gift, we are giving all sponsors 15% off in our store for an entire week (code found at the top of the sponsor page). In addition, we are removing ads from all Achievement Hunter videos for sponsors. We will also be rolling out some cool new Sponsor features that we are extremely excited about in the coming months.

Again, we apologize for the confusion and lack of communication. We love you guys, and want to make sure you continue to come back day after day. Thanks for making this the best community ever. Of all time.

Meh. I don't sponsor to download stuff. I sponsor to support the coolest group of people ever. Of all time.

This is why Barbara is the PR for RT/AH, who in the world could get mad at that face. Besides, like others I didn't sponsor for any of beneifits, i did it because you always support those who work so hard and who are just very cool folks.

It's all good.

However, the lack of a sponsor only Joe the cat 24 hour webcam is deeply disappointing.

New Features?
They have altered the deal, pray they do not alter it further.
#1  Posted 3 years ago
Thank you so much for addressing this, Barbara. I know I'm not alone in that I was pretty upset over how the loss of the downloads was handled and communicated. I'm glad to hear a solution is being worked on.

And now, to buy one of those new women's shirts! Perfect timing. ;)

Meanwhile....ohhh shiny new features??

Ohh, I was really wondering about that. Downloading is one of my favorite sponsor perks. Thanks for letting us know!

DarthDude Sponsor
it is always nice when those in charge (in this case Roosterteeth) communicate about a problem that plagues their entire system, such as the video removal. I'm glad to see that is wasn't removed because they wanted people to buy the episodes individually or as a movie, but was instead because of something completely out of their own control. So thank you Roosterteeth for informing us.

But now I'm going to spend lots of money...
Worth it.

I would be mad, but Barbara's cute face attached to this post melts all the pain away...

and thanks for noticing an issue. I wish a lot of video games paid as much attention to their servers for the sake of their fans like you guys

I just became a sponsor 4 days ago, and earlier today i was talking to my friends about how I'm going to buy an RT shirt. Am I dead?

I know I'm excited. It's kinda funny that they are apologizing by encouraging us to give them more money, but I think the rest of the stuff makes up for it.

Well, even with a discount, I'm too broke to buy anything right now. So I'll have to wait to see what the new benefits are. XD

Wait... does this mean that petitioning actually did something for once?

If by petition you mean endless comments after each video filled with rage and frustration...then sure you can believe that...I prefer to think Adam was awakened by a raging Gus asking "What did you do wrong?"

Love for the fans, that is why Rooster Teeth is the greatest company in the world.

Will the no ads on achievement hunter videos just be for the week or forever.

oh and by the way THANK YOU

PhilB I am Catbug
here are the reasons that i'm a sponsor (and in this order):
1) to support the coolest company around
2) to not watch annoying ads when i want to watch the content i want to watch
3) watching exclusive stuff
though i am sad that i cannot download and vids right now, at least AH will no longer have ads, that i'm appreciate for. keep up the awesome work and i'll keep contributing

Dopp whatever
It's not a feature that I used, but I can see why people were upset.

This is just a shining example of why I love all you guys at RT (and yeah, it's still cool/odd to lump you in that category). You actually listen to your fans and respond accordingly.

Rargh! How did this happen?!? And *drool* why, oh, why, did they have to send Barbara to... subside... rage...

I just recently became a sponsor, not because I wanted some cool video or because I wanted to watch RvB early but because I love the content that you guys put out and as Burnie always says "if you want to show your love for something, put money into it". Thanks for all the great content guys/girls of Roosterteeth.

No problem. It just sucks that I can't buy anything at the moment. I always have such rotten luck with the releasing of store codes. I am excited, however, for the new sponsor goodies. Couldn't have bought it at a better time.

Thanks for explaining! Honestly I don't really care about the missing features! It's good just to know I'm supporting Roosterteeth! But thanks for the explaination and apology, it is very much appreciated. And I think it's safe to say I speak for everyone when I say We are very Thankfull for the 15% off and all of the other new perks. Thanks!

Thank you so much for the explanation.
And a big, huge THANK YOU for the upcoming perks!
It is very gracious and kind of you guys to give us the 15% off. How many times can I say THANK YOU in this comment?

Ditto. Nothing drives me more crazy than when websites randomly change things without providing an explanation or rundown of new features. It's like when your parents aren't talking to each other but expect you to know what's going on.

So yeah, thanks for being awesome and keeping us i...
