Extra Life!Aloha folks,

If you’re on Rooster Teeth then you probably like games. If you like games then you probably really enjoy playing them. If you enjoy playing them – why not join us for Extra Life and challenge yourself to a 25 hour marathon? (With regular breaks of course!) We'll be streaming on November 2nd from 8am until November 3rd at 8am!

As you may know, Extra Life is a charity dedicated to helping children cope with sickness by providing them with interactive “distractions” that bring them joy and laughter. Games. In conjunction with other organizations, business’ and you, the community, Extra Life also raises money for equipment that hospital desperately need to help treat sick children.

This year, Rooster Teeth has teamed up with Extra Life to help raise money for a Children's Miracle Network hospital: Dell Children's Medical Centre of Central Texas as they are in desperate need of a Magneto-Encephalography Device (MEG).
There isn't a single MEG device in central Texas, so you can imagine the impact a machine like this will have on treating children suffering from brain tumors, epilepsy, head traumas and even autism. Keep in mind though, you can also choose a local charity when signing up if you want to help someone closer to home!

“But wait Jack, how can I, an awesome community member, help?” In so many ways, my good friend!

You can join Team Rooster Teeth and seek out donations for yourself, or you can donate directly yourself. Linking our team on Facebook and Twitter will help us achieve our goal.

For the event, Rooster Teeth will be live streaming for the entire 25 hours on the podcast set. Staff will be revolving throughout the duration of the stream, so no matter what time you check in (if you’re not with us the whole time) you’ll get to tune in and watch someone you know and love play games as terribly as we all do – unless you’re Ray. There will also be some sweet prizes as we hit our fundraising milestones!

Don’t forget to follow Extra Life on Twitter and Like them on Facebook for updates, or if you’re in Austin – Extra Life ATX. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be collaborating with Extra Life ATX so be sure to watch them for exclusive events!

If you have any questions, ask below in the comments or hit up @Caiti and she’ll be sure to answer them for you.

Thanks for all your support!

What's a children? You're using things that look and sound like words, but they don't make any sense!
#3  Posted 6 months ago
I'm not sure, but a Children's Miracle Network hospital is a thing. Is that what you are referring to?

Is there a specific game you'll be playing of will you guys rotate through the games as well?
#5  Posted 6 months ago
Caiti StoryTeller
There will be tons of different games! Most likely, they'll have a few chosen ones to start off with, but may take community requests during the stream

I had a good bit of fun doing Extra Life last year. Think year will be even better, and plus I'm a part of the RT team on there now :)

Starting at 8am and going to 8am the next day!
#2  Posted 6 months ago
So, I asked this on the Team RT site on extra, has anyone thought of how Team RT will talk with each other? Are we going to use Teamspeak, Ventrillo, Mumble? And are we all starting at 8am EST? Or staggered at our 8am (I happen to be in the Hawaiian time zone)?

Generally people start their marathon whenever they can locally. For example, the RT SideQuest team is going to start at 11am.

As for communication, you might see if RoosterSpeak (Community group based around a TeamSpeak server) has any Extra Life plans.

How would one watch this? and will there be a recording of this? as in a post on youtube or the site or something if some people are unable to watch this great display of vdieogames?

They will stream from the website - possibly another medium, but that will be announced closer to the date :)

Thanks for the heads up Jack. I might as well donate some money to a fundraiser such as this since I give some cash to the homeless around the city. Hopefully this year we can double up the proceeds like the previous years.

I'm somewhat ironically helping put on a 5k the same day to raise money for the children of NC Children's Hospital. Otherwise I would love to do this.

Good on you jack for doing this.

I have to say that is sucks that its only for america and not for Australia to it makes it harder for me to donate.

Roo Teeth have a team set up for this year where all proceeds go to a children's hospital in Toronto, Canada. That specific hospital is one of only three that provide urgent medical treatment to Australian children with cancer who can't receive their specific necessary treatments in Austr...

Got my Extra Life page set up not long after the original announcement. Figured since I have a decent YouTube audience, I'd do what I could. My viewers have surprised me with their generosity and blown my original goal out of the water. Never thought making dumb game videos would have that much of an impact. I think I'm third or fourth on the RT Team, which I never expected.

I promote the page and ask for donations every time I do a live stream (every week or so) and I'm planning on streaming for a sizable chunk of time on November 2nd. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...though that may just be the drugs.

I always loved it when YouTubers would do these kind of streams because it is such and amazing thing and it is for charity. It sounds like it will be fun and I will see if I can dig up some money to donate.

I am currently trying to rally support from all the serves on Guild Wars 2 for this. Have post up in the GW2 Subreddit , GW2 official forums, of course the RT PC gaming forum. I hope to have at least 20 people from every server and with a player base of well over 200,000 at any given time it shouldnt be that hard. I have also reached out to the biggest GW2 Youtubers as well. Thank you Jack for having this on the main page.

Ok done and done...even though I won't be able to do the full 25 hours like i want to (damn you job & bills) it's great that we can do this and play with a revolving team of RT staff.

Do you know what games we will be playing by any chance?
