Oh man! Our RTX London parties sold out in minutes, much to the dismay of at least a few people who sadly missed out. If you were one of them, have no fear!
We've got two chances for you to win a ticket to our pre-RTX Party Boat, and they won't cost you anything more than a little time.
The first pair simply need you tofollow @RoosterTeethUK and retweet their tweetfor the giveaway! Good luck!
The second is a little more involved, and also helps out the RTUK team get source images for a new profile banner to go on Twitter and Facebook. Head to this form, submit an image from an RTUK meetup, and get entry to win another pair of tickets!
It really could be as simple as that to join us on a Thames party cruise ahead of RTX London. And who knows, maybe we'll be giving away After Party tickets at some point as well.
As a final point, we're also planning a Pokémon GO Trade Event for the Saturday of RTX London. Times to be confirmed as the schedule is released, but if you dream of being the best, like no one ever was, get involved and make some PoGo friends for trading!

After a hugely successful After Party for last year's RTX London, I've decided that RTUK are gonna run not one, not three, but TWO parties this year!
Our Community After Party is making a return to the Secret Weapon bar in Stratford on the Sunday evening. There'll be a smaller charity raffle, but a Mario Kart tournament will help fill the night, along with Rooster Teeth and RWBY themed drinks as well as a music playlist put together by RT Radio!
But even before RTX begins, we're taking to the Thames on a floating nightclub for a beach party themed Boat Party! Floral patters, leis, hula skirts and for anyone brave enough, maybe even swimsuits!
Tickets for our RTX London parties are launching next week! You'll have multiple chances to snag your tickets (up to 2 tickets in one transaction) for our community events! See the dates and times below and set your reminders!
All profits from both parties directly support the work of our friends at Special Effect!
Batch 1 - 25/06 13:30
Batch 2 - 27/06 20:00
RTX London - Community After Party
Batch 1 - 26/06 13:30
Batch 2 - 28/06 20:00
Any questions on either event? Ask away!

Today marks the 10th anniversary of me being bored on a night shift, finding a series of comics about Halo 3, and then remembering a little web series called Red vs Blue. Diving into the first result on Google led me here.
Never in my wildest dreams did I expect a website, the company behind it and the people frequenting the then lively forums to be such a huge part of a third of my life. But that's exactly what happened when I first went looking into the Grifball forums. There was a team of friends looking for new members, and I'd recently fallen in love with the gametype! So with that, I joined Sarge's Angels and even designed them a team picture!
Of course, it was just after that another RT property started up and things really got serious! I am of course talking about Achievement Hunter! And what started with me sending @jack a few achievement tiles for Smackdown vs Raw, led to me helping write news and community pieces for the front page, as well as running the AHTV stream one Extra Life and even posting a bit on the AH Twitter account. None of that would have happened if @geoff didn't look at the community for people to help with managing the games database that was so painstakingly created!
But while the experiences in Grifball, Achievement Hunter and even more recently in the RT Store at MCM and RTX London, have all been incredible experiences of my life, it's the community that keeps me here. RTUK as an event and community has grown faster than I could have ever imagined when @Boomer first invited me to help out on RTUK'09. I've made friendships that I hope will last another decade at least, and a new found love to plan events, not only for the community but for the charities we support.
It's been a hell of decade.
And a huge shoutout to all of you I still wish to meet! Far too many to name, but you know who are, and one year I will make it to RTX Austin to see you!

Hello there friends, hope 2018 is being kind to you so far.
It's that time of year when many resolutions have been made and in some cases forgotten. I entered this year with the same goal in mind: lose weight. It's been a constant struggle for me, I've always been bigger, even for someone of my height, and grew up with a family that put more food in front of me then my older brother just because I was bigger and a "growing lad". I put some blame on my parents, but ultimately it comes down on me and my choices in life.
So this year, on my first weigh in, I initially shrugged off the increase and put that down as Christmas weight. Then I went to enter it into my app to log my weight, and all I saw was a constant, steady rise. When I converted my weight into pounds, I was truly stunned.
This is, without a shadow of a doubt, the heaviest I have ever been. I'm ashamed, I'm disappointed and I'm angry at myself for letting this happen. I'm the father of two wonder young boys, and everyday I spend not doing something about it, could be another day I'm taking off my life. Another day my boys could have to deal with not having me around. And that terrifies me more then anything.
So what am I doing about it? Well, more than anything, I need to retrain my mindset and how I treat food. And I definitely need to get more active. But it needs to start slow.
- Gym, twice a week. More so to strengthen my core, as I already suffer from sciatica at times.
- Meal prep, especially lunches. When I'm hungry, I usually end making bad choices, especially at work.
- Walk at least 3 lunch breaks for 30 minutes.
I'm hoping that putting my weight public for the first time will play on the back of my mind, I don't want to report back here in a couple of months time, no better off. I need to make a change, and I need to start now.

Infinity War trailer just dropped, and while I don't need to be sold on the film, I am completely stoked for this! Just knowing that this will be the culmination of 10 years of film making and story telling is not only an incredible feat for Marvel that will not be replicated!
And yes, I've seen Justice League, it is not a candle on the Avengers!
If you haven't seen the trailer:

Hard to think that the first RTX London already ended over a week ago! Normality has set back in far too quickly, but the memories of my first ever RTX are still plenty fresh! The scars are even fresher though, I had a couple of issues over RTX which included a very rough throat the whole time, giving me little to no voice, and on top of that, I slipped in the hotel shower on the Friday morning so had a wound ony my hand to deal with on top of everything else! Those two definitely put a downer on the weekend, I lost precious socializing time in the evenings by getting an early night to rest my voice. And looking back on the whole weekend, I wish nothing more than I had had more time to actually speak to the community and generally hang out with awesome people I otherwise only have contact with over social media.
Gotta say though, I have to give a huge thank to all of the RT personalities that came out to see the fans, everytime I passed them by or got a brief chance to speak to them, they were just the absolute best human beings possible. The events team as well, for planning the shit out of this RTX, which on the whole went so smoothly. And of course, my fellow Guardians, most of which worked a damn sight harder than me. Veteran Guardians were such a boost too, @SailorTweek, @sirNARVY and @mrarcys especially, who surprised us all with their presence and their huge wealth of RTX experience. Put all of those hard working people together, and the result was absolutely amazing!
So how was it being a Guardian? Well, I jumped feet first into that by leading the Store team! The guys are such an interesting group of individuals, but we gelled so well together, and worked damn hard throughout the weekend! I couldn't have asked for a better assignment, given some past experiences helping on the RT booth at previous MCM's, and of course we were helped out loads by Zac, Frankie and Ryan from RT.
Of course, the cherry on the cake of RTX was the Community After Party that we hosted in support of Special Effect. The themed drinks were a hit (we finished the night with most of us taking a whole Team RWBY shot set!), the raffle went down a storm, and in the end we raised £1899.83 for a good cause! Although the party was my baby, I couldn't have pulled it off without the support of @Boomer, @Arileya, @TopherBeadle, @CaptainNai, @The_Hybrid, @Lixxieb and many others! The bar also did a lot of the work, so if you are ever in Stratford, Dalston or even Brighton, check out the local Loading Bar because those guys are top!
I loved my whole experience at RTX, wounds, sore throat and all. But I'm seriously considering going as a weekend pass holder next time to focus on you guys, the community, and put all of my effort into making the next After Party bigger and better!

I haven't slept well for the last week. I think it's been a huge mixture of emotions that have come out of a few things. Whether it was preparing to launch the after party tickets, in shock at how well they sold, or now just anxious about running both the RT Store and the RTUK Community After Party. It may be affecting my sleep, but these are all good things that I'm so proud to be involved in.
When we released the after party tickets, I started getting messages to say they'd been sold out just two minutes afterwards! It took a while longer than that due to ticket reservations on the site, but the even was certainly sold out within the hour. This has been a bit of a labour of love for me, because despite never been to an RTX, I know the fantastic charity work that groups like SideQuest do, and I knew I wanted to get something going for RTX London knowing that SideQuest weren't coming. I started my dreams big, looking into venues that could hold up to 1000 people, but the reality of the costs involved soon sunk those dreams. We had no startup cash to begin with, and Eventbrite doesn't payout until some time after the event. So this being the first year we're doing this, we've had to opt for the smaller venue at Loading Secret Weapon. But knowing some of the staff there, I think we've definitely gone for quality over quantity!
So the party is already a big hit, and there's still some more to come on that, but there's also more fundraising going on before RTX London. RTUK has a few items up for auction to benefit Special Effect, and they're all very hard to get hold of tickets at this point:

Don't believe changing the currency is an option for First membership. Your card will just be charged in pounds at the current exchange rate.
If you wanted further info, I'd suggest contacting FIRSTsupport@roosterteeth.com

That point was specifically put in to prevent "Xbox vs Playstation", "COD vs Halo", "Digimon vs Pokemon" type threads.
