Teen Choice...So the Teen Choice award nominations are going on, and it would be pretty cool to get some RT love in there.

I've decided I'd like to try to be nominated for #SocialMediaQueen because, why not? Also, BOW DOWN TO MY HOLINESS JUST KIDDING
Go here, and click to vote for Social Media Queen (it's under the Digital category) and then it will give you something to tweet to give your nomination, and that's it! (my Twitter handle is @bdunkelman)

I know Lindsay is also hoping to get some nominations for #ChoiceFemaleWebstar and Arryn is looking at #ChoiceTwit, so throw some love into those two, if you can!

Thanks guys! <3

Make a music video!...for RvB Season 13!
That's right, it's another Community Contest!

A few years ago, we had a contest to make a music video using the RvB Season 9 soundtrack. This time, we're asking you to use any song from the AWESOME band, Trocadero! Read the contest description for all the details. The entire team at RT, and everyone working on RvB is so excited to see what you guys do.

There are prizes for the top 3 videos, but who knows -- maybe if you guys make the decision too hard, we'll have to give more prizes. Just to give you an idea, this was the winner of the previous Music Video Contest.

Make sure to read all the rules, and good luck! Contest ends June 22nd at 11:59 PM CT.

Want a copy of SMITE?Hey folks!

You’ve probably heard us talk about, or have seen us play a whole lot of Smite. It’s a free-to-play game on PC, and is coming to the Xbox One later this year.

Well… we have a TON, and I mean a TON of early access keys for Smite on Xbox One!
All you have to do is comment on this journal, and you’ll receive a private message (on the RoosterTeeth site) with your code.

If you play Smite on the PC, don’t worry- you’ll be able to merge your account with the Xbox One version and copy over progress and items.

We’ll be streaming some Smite later today, so keep an eye out. Don’t forget to leave a comment to get your key!

Have fun! You’ll have a SMITE-y good time.

Edit -- Make sure you check your message inbox after commenting! Sometimes it can take a few minutes to show up!

12 Year Anniversary Contest WinnersLast month, we held a contest for our 12-year Anniversary. Winners of our Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr contests have already been contacted personally, but I'm here to announce our 2 winners from our site who win a set of RTX VIP Passes!

First up, congrats to...

JDunlap!

And second, congrats to...

Twobit_!

If you're curious how the winners were selected, all 600+ entries were read, then a top 50 we liked were chosen, and then random selection for the top winners. There's no way to justify one entry being better than the other, as everyone is a fan for their own reasons - just know how much we appreciate every single one of you, and how amazing it was to read your stories and experiences.

I hope you don't get tired of hearing it, because I'll never get tired of saying it- best. community. ever.

<3

(And don't worry, we'll have more contests in the future. So if you didn't win this time, do not fret!)

An Australian Road TripAs some of you may know, @Arryn and I are in Australia for Supanova in Melbourne and Gold Coast. We have some down time in between each event, and our friends at @Hanabee have been taking great care of us. Yesterday (Monday), Cameron from Hanabee, Arryn, and I left around 1:30 PM to drive down south to stay in an Air B&B that was in the middle of nowhere Australia. It was quite the adventure. Here's how it went down:

Cameron picked us up, and we left Melbourne for our journey to the Great Ocean Road … even though we took the fast route, and would end up driving through the wilderness, and would take the "scenic" ocean road drive back.

About 2 hours into the drive, we found ourselves in the middle of no-where Australia. We spent about 45 minutes on the windiest, most terrifyingly beautiful path, surrounded by trees. mountains, and golden hour. Cam off-handedly mentioned we should see if there was a “petrol” station nearby, not realizing he asked because he was running dangerously low. We decided to pull over to ask a man working in his toolshed where the closest station may be. He said that the closest one may be 20 miles away, and we had about a tank left for 10 kilometers. Overhearing this, he said then nearest petrol station would be in his truck. Luckily, this man we happened to pull over to ask had a jug in his car full of gasoline, which would end up saving us from a very potentially scary experience.

We made it to our destination about an hour later- a house on Red Johanna Road. This place looked unreal - when you looked anywhere surrounding the house, it looked like a desktop background. No photo or video would or could do it justice. Rolling green hills as far as the eye can see, and not a single ounce of civilization. Truly secluded,

We dropped our things and glanced at the Guest Handbook for suggestions on how to get liquor and food. We drove up towards a town called Lavers Hill, hit up a shop for wine, and then a Tavern for fish and chips. We left to drive home, and on the way, saw a REAL LIFE KOALA just standing on the side of the road. Not running, not crawling on something, just standing there, as if waiting for us to arrive. After screeching our car to a halt, screaming for a full 2 minutes while trying to take a photo, Tyrone the Koala (that's what we named him) proceeded to slowly climb over the road barrier back to it’s home.

We returned home, and at this time it was night. Looking up, I’ve never seen more stars in all my life. It almost looked like a clusters of freckles. We drank wine while watching Game of Thrones, then slept.

This morning, we woke up, had tea on our porch with the world's most amazing view, then left to get more gas and breakfast nearby. Thus began our drive along the "Great Ocean Road" - a drive on the South East coast of Australia. It was about a 4 hour drive of more windy roads, but with gorgeous ocean, mountains, and greenery. Every turn you took was more beautiful than the last.

We then decided to stop at a rest stop because someone (me) has a small bladder or something. The restroom was located in a trailer park type area. We walked around in there, and on the way out, saw ANOTHER FUCKING KOALA just walking. It climbed up a small tree (about 4 feet high) and started eating leaves. We got right up close to it and took about 70000 pictures and videos, and one of the locals there told us we could pet it, as long as we were gentle and not intimidating. We did. He was so soft.

After leaving, we continued our drive back to Melbourne.

It was an amazing experience, and was so cool to get to experience that side of Australia. 10/10 would do again and again and again (maybe minus the part where we almost ran out of gas, though).

PS- I'll be posting an album of photos here shortly.
PPS- we're still in Aus, heading to Gold Coast this weekend for Supanova! Hope to see you guys there!

and finally. CONTESTS!

We want to hear from you, the best community and friends we could ask for, on why you are a Rooster Teeth fan. This contest will run until April 12, and winners will be selected at the end of the month. There are a few ways to participate:

We'll pick 2 winners from across all platforms who will win a set (2) of VIP Tickets to RTX 2015, and 2 winners from each social media platform who will win $50 to the RT Store!

....

LOOKING BACK

A lot has happened since April 1, 2014, so here's a quick recap on some of our favorite moments & milestones:

With the help of the RT community, we successfully funded our first-ever Feature Film, Lazer Team (and broke the Indiegogo record!) - make sure to watch the trailer here.
Rooster Teeth joined forces with Fullscreen
Funhaus joined the Rooster Teeth family
The first ever Let's Play Live was held in Austin, and it was AMAZING!
We launched a whole bunch of new shows, including X-Ray & Vav (Season 2 this Summer!) , Social Disorder, Happy Hour, On The Spot, Sunday Driving, Ten Little Roosters, and many more!
Over 30,000 of you came out to Austin for RTX 2014, making this the event to be at every summer! (including 2015- get your tickets now!)
We launched a new kid-friendly gaming channel, Game Kids!

...And more things than we have room to talk about.
Thank you for an incredible 12 years. Each one just keeps getting better.

With love, and a mouth-full of birthday cake,
