    As mentioned in the OP, this is an unofficial Q&A thread. Best bet for knowing when tickets go live is to follow RoosterTeeth and RTXEvent on Twitter, or regularly checking http://rtxlondon.com/


    That said, successful Guardian applicants will be notified before tickets go on sale. So my personal theory is late March / early April for tickets.

    In reply to SamUK They will announce the ticket release date, and any other relevant information for tickets, before they go live. So you won't be caught unaware and racing to get tickets.

    Hey so um, as someone who has severe anxiety and has dreamed of going to rtx for 5 years and havent been able to (due anxiety and other reasons), can anyone (preverably people who also have bad anxiety and struggle doing Anything) tell me what last years rtxlondon was like? 

    If you have bad anxiety and still managed to go to rtxlondon, is there anything you can say thatll help reassure me?

    Like i said, ive wanted to go to rtx for years and now i finally can go but my anxiety is really holding me back. im planning on only going for one day because thats as much as i can handle at the moment

    Hey Rachel.

    Personally I do not have severe anxiety, but I do have it. Enough to where I've skipped events before but RTX London was something I couldn't miss.


    Going alone, I was scared as hell. Especially since I was having to fly and travel alone for the first time.


    When I arrived in London on the Friday, I went to the convention centre to see what it was like as I knew this would make me feel more comfortable the next day when I was actually there with all the people.


    When the convention start, I will admit the convention floor was very crowded. When going to booths I had to move between other walkers or people who had to park them self right in the middle of the path. It made me nervous about hitting people, or getting knocked over myself (not very big), but after a while I got used to it. I would wear my headphones nearly all the time and listen to music or podcasts which I found helped.


    Panels and Lines I didn't talk to people as this is something I can't do. So again my headphones helped a lot. I also had my Kindle for reading, but if you can talk to people, you'll be fine.


    For the nights, I had talked to some people before the con and we had drinks together. Alcohol helps....a lot (in my case).


    Last year I setup a group chat for many of us travelling to RTX London alone. If you happen to be going alone, you're free to join us. Talking to these people ahead of time helped me a lot as it meant I had someone to message if I needed help or just didn't want to be alone. 


    I do think being from a much smaller place (Belfast) made it worse for me. Over here conventions are A LOT smaller, like maybe 1000 people at max, so coming to RTX with 15,000 people was insane to me.


    Something important to remember is that nearly every single person there can be your friend. You have something in common with 99% of the people attending. There will always be a guardian or another attendee there to help you with whatever you need.


    Hope this helped even the slightest, and if there is anything else you need to ask or need help with, feel free!

    There was a quiet room situated between the registration and exhibition hall for people that get overwhelmed. Guardians are present like every other step or at least eye sight so you can always request their assistance

    Tickets are not yet released. They will be sold through an external site which you will receive an email to when they are live. Keep an eye on Rooster Teeths Twitter for updates on this.

    Not yet. That information will start being revealed from early Summer.


    Whoever is there will likely be better on both days though.

    Did anyone get their First or Double Gold codes for tickets yet? I've got my little gold star, but I got the pre-public code for Sydney last fall and never got one for RTX Austin or London. I've already booked my flight and hotel so if I don't get a  RTX London ticket I will die of eternal sadness.

    Codes will be sent out tomorrow for RTX London, and Bethany had said in her post that if you don't receive it by the evening of the 19th, then to contact FIRSTsupport [@] roosterteeth [.] com
