    Uhhh, is it just me or is RT making to much content anymore? I'm not joking. When I started watching them 2-3 years ago you could keep up with all their content, now there's too much stuff to watch in one day. I feel like dropping my sponsorship just so I can go back to watching the fundimentals.

    One thing that has been impressive, repeatedly, is how involved Burnie remains with the community. I'm always seeing him conversing with the fans and acknowledging tweets during the podcast. It's probably just something he doesn't think twice about, but it's really nice to see, as a fan, how appreciative he is. That's just something that I absolutely love about Rooster Teeth, the love towards the fans that is made apparent all of the time. It's something that I like to take a step back and really focus in on the strengths of this company. I've been enjoying the content of Rooster Teeth since the beginning of RvB season 5, and I'm looking forward to many more years of hilarious shows.

    When I initially got the DVD the case was all fucked up. However your support team fixed the situation with a email saying "ho no, this won't do at all. We'll send you a new one, no questions asked." Two weeks later I had the new DVD. The reason this is really mentionworthy is because two weeks is crazy fast for RT goods. As a swede, I'm expecting things within a month, not two weeks. support team gets a strong A+, BTS department gets a C (That's considered a lacking grade even though it passes with some shit under it, right?) simply because the BTS perk made it sound like the BTS was a backers exclusive thing. I'd give the movie a B+ (can't really have a say here, I'm fanboy biased to a unbelievable scale). make of this what ya will

    You mentioned a report card on the Lazer Team rewards, so I thought I'd just share my experience and give my own grade.

    First off, I thought the rewards were very nice overall. Plenty of physical goods as well as some amazing things like the walk on role, RWBY characters, etc.

    When the campaign was first announced, I knew I was going to donate, no matter what. When it finally launched, I jumped on the page immediately and tried to figure out the most I could give and stay within my budget. I eventually settled for the $125 signed DVD perk. While I had a decent job at the time, my friend had just offered me an extra RTX ticket he had, so I had already committed most of my savings for the flight down and stuff. Getting the signed version was a great call on my part since I ended up standing in two autograph lines for about 3-4 hours without getting one. Not blaming anyone for that.

    So when the rewards first started coming in, I got the shirt and the poster first. The shirt was alright, standard plain logo t-shirt. The poster, like every other poster I've gotten from RT, was a bit wrinkled and had tattered edges. Obviously a fault, but one I more or less expected from 3 past poster orders. Then the DVD itself finally came. Great movie, watched it three times already. My only problem with it was that my signed copy came with only a single signature. Not only that, but the signature was just a letter M. I've already gotten the "Sorry, it is what it is." So I'm not trying to bring it up to start something again, just giving an overview.

    Overall, I'd give my personal rating a C+. Passing, and I'd give again if I have the money at the time, but I'll probably lower my expectation.

    I got my ticket for the RWBY screening. I'm super excited for that! Also, are we going to be getting another trailer for RWBY Chibi sometime within the month or before the premiere day? The trailer didn't really show anything about what kind of show it will be like and I'm just curious to see what kind of direction it will take compared to the main series itself.

    Is the new season of RvB going to be continuing from the end of Season 14 or will it set during previous story arcs of the show? Are the stories self contained episodes or is there gong to be an overarching storyline running through them?

    Really appreciate the vlogs, Burnie! Great to know what's coming up, and I'm sure we all appreciate the transparency and openness of RT.


    One thing for future vlogs though: you might want to step back a bit further and/or use a diffeerent location. I know I'm not the first to point it out but with how close you were to the camera, combined with the fact that we could rarely see either of your arms and heard the running water... it really seemed like you were taking a piss through the whole video.


    BUT, that aside, great! Really looking forward to all three of the upcoming shows; animation's always been my personal hook from RT productions. RVB has of course always been outstanding, RWBY quickly became my favorite show anywhere, and I'm a sucker for 2D animation, so looking forward to Camp Camp as well. Keep up the great work!

      He was either peeing or something similar.

    Could you explain the seperation between joining Let's Play and Joining Rooster Teeth. There seems to be some sort of difference i.e. Funhaus and ScrewAttack are part of RoosterTeeth, while Kinda Funny and the Creatures are partnered with Let's Play. At the same time, they're all available on the RoosterTeeth store. Are they going to eventually end up merging with the RT site, like ScrewAttack?

    • RKezizz FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold The Worst Sponsor

      I think the thing about being partnered is like easier access to each other collaborating but not full ownership. Either party could say "see ya!" with a lot less ramifications

    Anyone else get the feeling like Burnie is taking a piss the whole video. I know he is not actually peeing but all the fidgeting and how close he is to the camera and the running water gives me that feeling.

    I agree with nowplayingbl. Any updates you can provide about the developmental structure of RT as it continues to grow would be appreciated (ex. Screw Attack news, Kind'of Funny, other partner statuses, and even anything from Fullscreen you think should trickle down). The growth is exciting, but it does have the potential to create distance from the community standpoint if the company becomes more amorphous. And Burnie you certainly have a way of clarifying important information for the community. Love getting information this way. Keep'em coming!

      Payton knows it.


      This is why the video logs are essentials. They are a medium that the fans love and can connect to while informing them of the changes to the company. This helps relieve the feeling of disconnect as the company grows and decreasing the possibility of the company crashing during this expansion stage. As business owners know, what is most important during and after expansion is stabilization. So you have to balance this expansion with keeping the community feeling connected and loved, which is the possibility that these vlogs bring.


      This is what I do for a living, keeping businesses stable during and after growth. As we know, RT will not stop evolving to the community and the times, which consistently calls for new ways to keep the community involved with the company as it changes.

    Two months away from being an RT sponsor was too long. It feels good to be back. It's like being in on the secret cool kid club meetings.

    Camp Camp looks great I can't wait to see it. RWBY Chibi teased so little I'm dying for more info. I think it looks great myself -- saw some not so great people on twitter already condemning it but hey fuck them right? How do you know you hate something when you barely know what it is.


    So glad these sponsor vlogs are now in a playlist :) although having to hunt through all the personal journals to find them felt like an elaborate game of some kind. Is there a sponsor vlog this week? I don't know! Who posted it? What"
    Great stuff.

    Keep it up RT, <3 u guys

    P.S.

    This is probably more for @Adam, but a general website status update/changelog on things that have been updated on the website, things in progress, and things to come (mod history?), as well as bug fixes, etc. woud be greatly appreciated. I haven't seen one of those in a while, and I know the dev team is hard at work, but it's difficult to tell exactly what changes have been implemented over the past few months on the site.

    I would love to hear more about what the "lets play" family is. The growth of the channel and rooster teeth has been awesome. But is the way Kinda Funny and the Creatures joined the lets play family different than when funhaus and screw attack joined? Regardless I am thrilled. Just curious if they will have their own rooster teeth website or if sponsors will see any of their content early.

    Most definitely the structure of RT. Who is incorporated, who has been given a title (like when Gavin became the Creative Director). You just cannot find that on this site, and allows the first gen fans to still feel like there are apart of something they can comprehend. Now RT is so big, there is this feeling of unfathomability.

    I don't want to sound like a broken record, but how about employment opportunities? I noticed most of the job listings have moved to the Fullscreen website, but maybe give sponsors a heads up if you're looking for certain skill sets or people living in certain locations like CA/TX.

    Burnie, something I've been wondering about recently was if you or someone else could give us an insight into how joining Fullscreen has impacted RT.

    I know there was a lot of people whining about it, because this is the internet, but I also know that it opened up a lot of new things for you guys to be able to do.

    I'm guessing it also brought about more funding and I'm curious if that has been a part of the more recent things like the Immersions where you're doing much bigger and cooler things?

    I guess what I'm asking is if there are any concrete signs or examples of how Fullscreen has improved things at RT?

    Maybe the TV I use as a monitor is too big, but if you could just take like one step backwards that'd be great. I was getting like a Great Face vibe from this and it was making me uneasy.
