    The dates for RTX 2016 have officially be announced. The community will be reconvening once again July 1-3 for another weekend of mind blowing excitement. The countdown is already up on their site and they've posted a blog with additional info:

    I definitely plan on going again! Who all can I expect to see there as well?

    I have to see if I finally get guardianship this year. If I don't Ill have to weigh the costs since my other friends already have a plan for hotel room and such. Plus after being VIP this past RTX I can't not be one, it was too damned convenient.

    I've never actually gone to RTX as a VIP. What extra do you get with the upgraded pass? From what I've heard it sounds like it's worth it.

    The VIP party is worth it alone. SO many chances to interact with the cast and crew in a slightly more normal scenario. I remember walking up to Bruce and him being surprised to see me (we had met the past October before FunHaus was a thing when he and his fiance came down to Puerto Rico to an event I staffed).


    Other than that, being able to go to the popular panels an hour early and have almost front row seats is a god send. The two autograph slots you have, The VIP lounge right next to the stage. Its honestly the best way to experience RTX if your ultimate goal is to meet the cast and crew and interact with them on a more personable level than just a quick selfie and the like.

    Yeah, definitely going to have to do that if they offer it again this year. Thanks!

    Well if enough people decide to go we could always set up a little meet up after one of the day or something. Although, hopefully by then we will have already have some sort of event. :)

    My group plans on going, again. Pretty sure we are going to try to get VIP tickets this year since the lines were rough this year.

    Tell me about it, they get worse and worse every year. And that's great and all for the convention with how big it's getting, but I miss the simplicity of the first two years.

    Wanted to go to the AH panel, but I would have had to line up 3 hours early for it instead of enjoying the events on the floor.

    The biggest reason I went in 2014 was because of how amazing 2013 was for a friend of mine. It was jarring how incredibly different my experience was from his. Getting up at 6am for the RWBY panel when the panel was at 10. The terrible way the autograph sessions were handled and run. While this past year I had some social issues (my fault entirely) the VIP experience was amazing.

    I'm definitely going to go again this year. I can't believe how amazing RTX 2015 was! I'm with you guys on the lines. The VIP badge is going to be a hot commodity.

    We should try to get a group photo sometime. ;)

    I hope to go, but $$$ is the issue. I have a trip up to Toronto to see some friends already planned out and I don't know if I can afford 2 trips and still take time off work.

    I'm gonna do everything I can to make it back. Wish I could do it with a VIP pass, but I just don't have the money for that.

    That's what tax returns are for. Every year mine have gone to the cost of the trip.

    Good point. Hopefully I'll be able to set enough aside for that.

    I liked Austin a lot so I should end up there for RTX again regardless, but I applied to be a guardian so I'll see how that goes.

    I struggled for a while on whether or not to apply to be a guardian. I decided to get one more year as an attendee before applying. Lol

    I was thinking that those of us who do go to RTX next year, we should definitely meet up. If not during the day at the actual event, then we could always do it somewhere nearby afterwards. Those who get shirts from the meet up can even wear them when we do to show our communityness! :)

    I applied to be a Guardian again, since it was so rewarding last year. But, I'll be there either way. One day I'll maybe experience it from the attendee stand point, but it's too awesome working with everyone and helping out the community!

    I wanted to go last year but I had a few trips timed around the sametime. If anyone wants to split the costs and go there it would be super cool.

    Definitely want to go, never been yet. All my friends can never afford to go and I don't want to go by myself, would be cool to maybe meet up with some of you guys if you're near the Treasure Coast.

    Don't let the concept of "being alone" deter you from attending if you can! You'll meet so many awesome new people there, whether it be standing in line waiting for a panel, or seeing a cool cosplayer. I went alone last year, and talked to so many amazing, cool people. There are off-hours events, too, which if you're old enough to drink or hangout that's a pretty chill time to play games or check out concerts together. :)

    Yeah there will most likely be an RTFL Meetup if not a room or set of rooms with RTFL members in them.
