      We just posted our panel & autograph schedule for this year's RTX! Click "Schedule" at the top of, or go direct via this link.



      There are a lot of moving pieces to RTX, which means things may get moved around, added, or cancelled. Once the app comes out (closer to RTX), that will have the most accurate version of the schedule, and we'll replace the uploaded site schedule with the corrected version. We'll keep you posted! Still more info to come about evening events and other details, so stay tuned.

      ​MDB Game and YOU

      2 weeks ago

      Hey friends!

      As you (hopefully) heard yesterday, we launched a Kickstarter campaign for our first ever CARD GAME! It’s based off the show you all know and (...hopefully) love, Million Dollars, But…! See our announcement video here.

      If you haven’t seen the actual show yet, go watch the episodes! It will be important for what we have in store below.

      You guys blew us away yesterday with your enthusiasm for this project. We are all so excited, and can’t wait until everyone gets their copy and starts playing!


      We wanted to do some fun stuff during this campaign, so starting TODAY and going on throughout the month, we’re going to be doing various video and photo challenges on Twitter/Instagram. Every few days, we’ll be asking you to get a photo or video related to memorable moments from the Million Dollars, But… show.

      Why, you ask?

      We have 4 stretch goals for our campaign, each are unlocked by us getting certain achievements including you guys participating in these challenges below, and others are things like getting a certain number of followers for @MDBGame or number of backers - things of that nature. Here's a breakdown:

      1. Hitting Our Goal within 24 hours = Live Stream with our cast -- WE HIT THIS ONE! That means we will be doing a live stream in a few weeks, so stay tuned for info.

      2. Getting 8 Achievements = Unlocking a 400 Card Deck (current deck is 300 cards)

      3. Getting 17 Achievements = Unlocking a 500 Card Deck

      4. Getting all 26 Achievements = We begin production on a Million Dollars, But... MOVIE.

      The achievements can be found on our Kickstarter page at We'll be announcing more as we go.

      Ready for the first one achievement challenge?

      Your first challenge (WHICH STARTS NOW) is to get a video 
      of you eating birthday cake with your hands
      Post this to Twitter or Instagram (or both!) using # ButStuff and tag @MDBGame. 

      As a heads up, the challenge after this one (Starting May 14th) will be a photo of A Date with Hitler. We’ll pick and repost our favorite one within the 2 days of the start. (e.g. Birthday Cake video challenge starts today, May 12th, and ends May 14th when we pick one to repost. Then, same day, the Date with Hitler photo challenge begins, and we let you know what the one after that will be to give you some prep time)

      We have a bunch of these for you guys to do, and it should be a ton of fun. There are even some that will involve your friends!

      Alright, ready? Get us those videos of you eating Birthday Cake with your hands, and tag it with #ButStuff and @MDBGame so we can find it!

      GO GO GO!

      Sponsor Release Window UPDATE

      3 weeks ago

      Hey folks!

      The Rooster Teeth Community is an amazing thing. Seeing how you guys interact with each other, what you create, and how you’ve grown amazes us every day.

      A few weeks ago we announced that episodes for all animated shows – including Red vs. Blue, RWBY Chibi, and Camp Camp – would be released a week earlier for Sponsors. We’re always trying to add to the value of Sponsorship, and to give you guys as much as we can as a thank you for supporting us. After reading your comments, it became clear that this was not a perk that most Sponsors wanted. So we did something about it.

      Starting this weekend, Sponsors will be able to watch animated shows the moment they’re released, and 24 hours later those shows will be available for all registered, signed-in users on (both Sponsors and non-Sponsors). That means non-Sponsors will have to have an account on the Rooster Teeth site to be able to watch shows 24 hours after they’re released for Sponsors. If you don’t have an account, you’ll have to wait one week to see it.

      In short, there’s a new three-tier release schedule for RWBY Chibi, Red vs. Blue, and Camp Camp:

      1. Rooster Teeth Sponsors see the episode first
      2. One day later, everyone signed into a Rooster Teeth account (including non-Sponsors) can watch the episode on the site
      3. Six days after that, the general public can watch the episode on or YouTube

      We recognize that a huge part of our story-driven shows (such as RWBY and Red vs. Blue) is the discussion surrounding the show, the fan art, and the ability to share your reactions and theories. We hope to unite the community on the Rooster Teeth site, encouraging discussions among fans whose paths might not have crossed in the fragmented fan communities across the internet. We want to make sure this can continue and flourish as much as it has. You guys make what we do all worth it, and sharing is caring, right?

      Tune in Saturday, May 7 at 10 AM CT for the premiere of RWBY Chibi, and Sunday, May 8 at 12 PM CT for the premiere of Red vs. Blue Season 14! (May 8 and May 9 for non-Sponsors signed into the Rooster Teeth site, and May 14 and May 15 for the public, respectively.) If you aren’t already a Sponsor, now is a great time to take advantage of our free 30-day trial.

      We love you.

      Let's Play and Kinda Funny

      2 months ago

      Recently, you might have seen the Let's Play channel ( going through a few changes. We're happy to announce another exciting change: Kinda Funny, a group of guys we admire and love to work with, have officially joined the Let's Play family!

      This means in addition to the Rooster Teeth, Achievement Hunter, Funhaus, and ScrewAttack videos you see already on the Let's Play channel, you'll also be seeing contributions from the Kinda Funny crew, too.

      And that's not all!

      We've teamed up with them to bring you Let's Play Presents: Kinda Funny LIVE!

      This is the second KFL that they've done, and we're happy to partner up to bring our guys over to San Francisco for this 2-day event. Tickets for that are NOW ON SALE! Come see us (and I guess Kinda Funny, too) May 28-29, 2016!

      And before you go, make sure to check out Kinda Funny. They're more than kinda funny, IMO.

      Day of DOOM!

      2 months ago

      That is probably the most awesome title of anything we’ve been a part of, right?

      We’re super pumped to announce that we’re hosting a live stream event called Day of DOOM.

      This is the very first live stream of DOOM multiplayer in a tournament with athletes, YouTubers, and our very own Rooster Teeth people, and hosted by the lovely Tyler Coe and Jack Pattillo.

      This takes place TUESDAY, March 29th at 5 PM - 7 PM CT, on our YouTube channel!

      Here are the teams. Start placing your bets.

      • Adam Kovic and Chad Ochocinco Johnson
      • Michael Jones and Rob Gronkowski
      • iJustine and Antonio Brown
      • SSSniperwolf and Thierry Henry

      That’s right. We’re pairing Adam Kovic and Michael Jones up with real athletes. I’m not sure who will be more prepared… or scared.

      Join us for this event, what some are calling “SO COOL” and “ULTIMATE DOOM BATTLE EXTRAORDINAIRE” and “OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!”- real quotes, I swear.

      Check out the trailer for the tournament here.

      See you then!

      Still haven't seen Lazer Team?

      2 months ago

      In case you've been off the internet for the last few months, Rooster Teeth's first feature film, Lazer Team, was released in theaters and online on YouTube Red! We're so excited to be able to share the movie with you guys, the people who helped us make it happen and who support us throughout everything.

      We know we have a very worldwide audience, and we want as many people as possible to be able to watch the movie. If you DON'T live in a country that has YouTube Red, there may still be a way to see it!

      If you go to this link, it should take you to the watch page for Lazer Team.

      1) If you live in a country with YouTube Red, you'll have the option to start your trial and watch the movie (or watch it if you already have Red).

      2) If you live in a country that DOESN'T have YouTube Red, you may still be able to purchase it! Go to this page, and see locations that the movie is available to purchase in "Purchase Locations." If your country is listed, you should be able to get the movie from this link. Attached is a screenshot from Canada to show you what it should look like.


      Hope this helps for any of you who still haven't gotten a chance to watch it online!

      I ,The8Bit,call dibs on Yang's right armed ShotGauntlet. I have made this post to clearly state that I have called dibs on Yang's right shotgauntlet. It seems to me that Yang has cut off her career of being a huntress and will no longer need a bracelet full of shells. In this case I could use this weapon in better purposes instead of her. If she needs a hand then I am sure that the general can make that girl her very own arm. I have already notified her that I will be arriving next month to pick up the weapon from her. Fraid not good people for this weapon will be cared for in the upmost respect. I know that a weapon like this would cost an arm an a leg anywhere else. I would love to explain more but I must be packing for it will be a very long and interesting trip.

      Hi Barb

      I was hoping it would be possible to get a tweet about the Lazer Team screening at Tamworth, NSW Australia it's a small rural town and the best shot at reaching the rooster teeth fans that are not members of roo teeth would be to have rooster teeth itself put out the word. It would mean the world to me and all the other rooster teeth fans in this small area if we could pull this screening off as would not only be an opportunity to see Lazer Team on the big screen but an opportunity to meet other rooster teeth fans in this remote area. We are halfway there we just need some help.

      Thank you.

      Hey Barbara,

      I bought tickets to the Lazer Team showing in NYC on the 27th. My girlfriend received tickets to see Muse the same night so now I can't go. I want to try to make the most of the situation though. Would it be okay if I tried to give the tickets away to a Rooster teeth fan who volunteers with my old company, St Bernard Project? (D.B.A.; Friends of Rockaway and Sea Bright Rising)

      They do Hurricane Sandy recovery work in NYC and NJ respectively. They are also starting some work in Texas and South Carolina but I assume fans in that area probably can't make it to NYC.

      I just want to make sure I can actually do it and it wont effect the showing or anything. If that works let me know. I'm not sure who else I could ask.

This nomination is made on the grounds of your singular pun prowess and how many puns that show's narrators squeeze into each instructional sequence. I'm convinced you could make a much more enjoyable segment.

      Can I ask about the Vue screenings of Lazer Team in the UK? The link of Tugg just seems to link straight through to the Cinema's website but they don't seem to have sold many tickets and I'm confused as this is not the way the other cinemas on Tugg seemed to work (having to have over a certain number before being confirmed etc.) ... can you tell me what the deal is? Have Vue auto-confirmed all the screenings? (The one we're particularly interested in is Vue Omni Edinburgh, Scotland).

        Either way, it is going to be an awesome fight. (Can't help feel that this is another nod to Monty)

        If anybody has seen the sneak peek picture of the fight, looks like Yang is going to bust up another bar, more specifically Tifa's bar.
