      RT Florida

      Hey all, hope you had a great week and weekend. Not much happened as we mellowed down from RTICD. Hope you all have fun doing that as there will definitely be more like it in the future (maybe not only April 1st).


      Coming up this week we have our rematch for Rooster Rumble against the Midwesterners. We are planning for Thursday (April 14th) playing some Halo 5 with some regular game types. Keep a look out for more updates later this week and we look forward to seeing you out there to represent RT Florida!


      Then later this weekend we have a Minecraft Let's Play hosted by one of our own. If you have capture capability, we would appreciate if you would record if you want to play. Chances are afterwards will also lead to other games too, as per our usual nights. See more details here:


      http://roosterteeth.com/forum/rt-florida/topic/307...


      That's all really, not too much else. We'll be having a few other events for the next few weeks here and there. RTX is coming up fast guys!

    • RTFL Weekly Update #05 - Are You Ready to Rooster Rumble!!??

      2 years ago

      RT Florida

      Hey all of you awesome RT Florida people!


      So Round 1 of Rooster Rumble is upon us and our opponents, the Midwesterners, have challenged us to a few rounds in Halo 5. To make it a little more interesting, they have proposed we have a 5 round match consisting of two challenge maps from each community potentially culminating in a final round of a normal Halo 5 game type. These challenge maps can consist of anything from races, assassination battles, king of the hill, etc. They can either be custom made game types or forge map challenges (think HORSE, but more like HO... wait, no... think PIG, but more like PI... there we go).

      My thought is that we can have a little competition among our community for whose maps/game types we'll use. If you would like, spend this week making a map and then we can pick our favorite ones on Friday. Do keep in mind while you make these that you would not be able to participate in that round due to an unfair advantage you would have as the creator. Also, when making these maps, remember we don't want it to take all night, so create something that can be completed in a reasonable amount of time (remember the long hours Jack and Geoff spent on HORSE!?). If you have any questions in regard to creating a challenge, feel free to message me (@WB_Spartan) or Victoria (@ArnettV).

      That being said, lets talk scheduling. It looks like the best time for the Midwesterners is Saturday April 9th after about 6pm. Looking at the RT Florida Gaming Roster, we have a lot of availability at that time. For the time being, lets plan on holding the match at 6pm Saturday, April 9th.

      Check out the new forum below for discussions on map creation, scheduling, and participation in round 1.

      Also, if you would like to participate, please feel free to fill out your information on our group gaming google doc!

      Thirteen years. Thirteen years! It's been thirteen goddamn years and we all still love these people so much. And to show our love, a bunch of events have been put together across the community- scratch that, across the world! And we were glad to have been a part of it.


      As I'm sure you've heard me talking about over the past month, A new group, Rooster Teeth International Community Day, was formed for the sole purpose of bringing together all the fans on Rooster Teeth's anniversary for a bunch of fun, silliness, excitement, and general enjoyment. So of course, we chipped in our fair share and brought you some great events this weekend. Later this afternoon starting at 6 PM EST, we will be hosting a game night on Xbox One featuring Minecraft, GTA V, and Halo 5. Then tomorrow, we have our RT anniversary meet up in Orlando at Firkin and Kegler by Waterford. You can see more on our events page here. If you haven't been to any of our meet ups before, they're a blast, people have fun, and we only sometimes break stuff. But we always have fun. We're looking forward to seeing old faces, and new. And whether you've been to all our events, or not a single one, we'll welcome you with open arms, because that's what this community is about. That's what this entire weekend is about. Celebrating the company as a whole, who they are- come and gone, the work they've done, and you, the fans, who love them because of all of these reasons plus more!


      Look forward to seeing you out there this weekend, and I want to give a big thank you to Tasha from RT Maine for helping starting RTICD. The community groups may of come together to make it happen, but without Tasha's view, her desire to see this happen, I don't think we would've gotten this far without her. Cheers!


      Have a great weekend, guys. Oh, and happy birthday, Rooster Teeth!


      With love, from RT Florida

      So, I forgot yesterday was Monday. Whoops!


      Not too much new on the update front. It's pretty much been decided that if we ever do an On the Spot: RT Florida Edition, then Ricky would definitely be the host. Oh, and we're having a mini-meet up in Orlando at Lazy Moon. Apparently they have these giant ass pizzas and it'll be fun!


      This week is RT's 13th anniversary and, if you've been living under a rock (or are a rock), theRooster Teeth International Community Day group was founded to bring all the communities together to do some fun stuff for the weekend. RT Florida is having a game sessions Friday and meet up Saturday. Fun stuff, find more details on those (and tonight's mini-meet up) on our Facebook event page here:


      https://www.facebook.com/groups/RTFlorida/events/


      Rooster Rumble tourney is around the corner! Be prepared for that April 3rd - 17th. If you would like to participate, please be sure to mark your information down in our gaming roster below so we can come together to show to RT community how we kick ass!


      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XTbMbglFLK...


      Just so you guys don't forget, there are the RWBY Volume 1 Tugg Screenings. We've listed the Florida locations here, and are even giving away tickets to the Orlando showing on our Twitter later this week. Follow us there for updates on that. Also, it's pretty much been decided that the after party for the screenings will be karaoke. We're still looking for a location off site from City Walk (due to age restrictions), so if you know a place near I-Drive in Orlando, let us know!

      What else, what else? Um... How is everyone's day going?


      Also, we won't stop cramming this down your throat until it's done, so here it is again, you're weekly-ish reminder about the N RT Florida meet up. See our previous post for more info and voice your opinion! No reason, really except because we're awesome.


      That's really all we have. You guys are wonderful and make this group what we are. $10 gift card to the RT store if you can tell us you're favorite part of RT Florida. We'll announce a winner Friday!

    • North RT Florida Meetup Update #1

      2 years ago

      RT Florida

      Hey All!


      After another awesome meetup in Orlando, were one week closer to the first North RT Florida meetup! Looking through the questionnaire, more people seem to be available on the weekend of May 20th and are wanting to meet up in Jacksonville. With that we have a few more things to consider for this awesome event.

      In the past, most of our meetups have been on a Sunday, but I want to make sure we pick a day that works for most of us. If you have a preference on having the meetup on either Saturday, May 21st or Sunday, May 22nd, post it in the comments.

      At the moment, we're looking at holding the meetup at the Dave & Busters. It's a great place to eat, drink, play some games, and socialize with your fellow RT fans! If you're from the area and know a great place, let us know in the comments.

      Any questions, concerns, thoughts about your march madness bracket, excitement for more FLCL, or general HYPE? Feel free to message me (@WB_Spartan).

      Time for an obligatory hype gif!!

      How are these supposed to work again? Oh, yeah!


      Hey, everyone!


      The meet up this past Sunday at Whirly Dome was great, lots of new faces, good times, and breaking of games. That's right, we broke a carts in one of the whirly ball courts, well, one of us in particular. You know who you are... Lazer tag of course went great too. What could be better than a bunch of online gamers who play FPS, to meet in the real world and play an FPS course. Definitely need to do this again.


      We got some great footage that will be posted soon, some nice on court and in game videos as well as pictures and other great content to show you guys!


      Next up are our events for Rooster Teeth's 13th anniversary. Friday, April 1st, we will be hosting an online game session (no not a Drunk Gaming, this will be later in the month). To decide what game(s) we'll be playing that afternoon, please be sure to take our poll here to add your input! Then our meet up Saturday, April 2nd, where we are zeroing in on our location for this. The meet up location will definitely be in Orlando, we're just waiting to hear back from one location, following up with another, and then we'll put it to a vote with you guys to finally decide. Since RT's anniversary is a week and a half away, this vote will be later this week on our Twitter.


      There will still be a lot going outside of RT Florida for RTICD weekend. You can check out their group here for updates on what they have planned: http://www.roosterteeth.com/group/rt-international...


      If you have a video of you and your friends having fun, wearing merch, or anything else RT related that's totally awesome from the community, see their most recent post to possibly get it into a complication video! There is also the RTICD Twitter with frequent updates and information on what to expect from the community.


      Also, don't forget about the new season of Rooster Rumble that starts April 3rd! See Will's previous post on what to expect and where to sign up!


      And of course, don't forget about about the RWBY Tugg Screenings April 27th. We have listed all of the Florida showings on our Facebook group events page here and intend on having another one of our amazing after parties post Orlando screening. Karaoke has been requested so prepare to drink and sing horribly with the rest of your fellow members because it's happening.


      Love you guys!

    • Rooster Rumble Tournament!!

      2 years ago

      RT Florida

      Hey All!


      Rooster Rumble is upon us and the bracket has been finalized! While we were assured the placement was totally random, we're secretly relieved we're not the 16th seed (sorry, not sorry RvBTX). Here is the full bracket.

      RoosterRumble%20Bracket_1.png

      The first round is scheduled to be played anytime between April 3rd and April 17th with the game TBD. Like we did with the previous Rooster Rumble, we'll use a group forum and the group gaming spreadsheet to schedule when we are all available to play. However, now that the community has grown (which is freaking awesome!), we'll need to decide who will be participating in each round. If you haven't already, head over to the group gaming doc and fill out your information.

      Can't wait to show the rest of the RT community how we do it in the sunshine state!!

    • RWBY Volume 1 Tugg Screenings

      2 years ago

      RT Florida

      *Internal screaming and uncontrollable excitement*


      Okay, so maybe the uncontrollable excitement is external too, but we're excited to relay the message about RWBY Volume 1 being hosted by Tugg in theaters across the world! You can find a screening near you on their new site here:


      http://teamrwby.com/


      While they aren't allowing for self-hosted events like they did for Lazer Team, but you can request Rooster Teeth to add one near you for their Volume 2 screening coming soon. Side note: they'll also be doing Volume 3. I cannot wait to see everyone's reactions to the finale in person! You can find where to voice your demand for Volume 2's location under the event list on their site here:


      http://teamrwby.com/screenings.html


      As another side note: we're hosting an event at the Orlando screening. Like last time, there will be fun gatherings beforehand, the movie itself, a give away after the movie, and an after party just as there was for Lazer Team.


      https://www.facebook.com/events/845653148880054/


      This will be held at the one in Orlando at City Walk again, however, if you cannot make it to this one, feel free to host your own meet up at your own location. We'll help you set it up with some fun times, and maybe even some free stuff to give away! Contact us if you would like to host an RT Florida meet up for this event near you!


      There's a lot going on with this at the moment so we apologize if this is a bit short for now, but we will be following up with more information about our RT Florida RWBY Screening Event at Universal as we get closer to the event.

      You may find the other Florida RWBY Volume 1 screening listed on our facebook page here:

    • RTFL Weekly Update #02

      2 years ago

      RT Florida

      Hello, RT Florida members!


      Welcome to our second weekly update with our intro brought to you by the DFW crew!




      This Sunday is our March Meet Up at Whirly Dome in Orlando off I-Drive. I don't know about you guys, but I'm excited! There will be lazer tag, bowling, lazer maze, food, drinks, and this awesome game called whirly ball. We timed it so we'll be ther during happy for food and drinks, plus special pricing on certain games! Event starts at 3:30 and really kicks off at 4:00. We will be recording a video segment for the RTICD community video to show the company and its workers how much we appreciate and adore them. Just show up and listen up when we announce we're about to record.


      We have a few more announcements relating to Rooster Teeth International Community Day (You can find the RT group here for more information on the multiple events as well as to interact with your other community groups). If you're discussing on social media about this event, please be sure to use the hashtag #RTICD16 for all related posts. Liv from Rooster Buckeyes is heading her own community video project, to learn more, see our previous update, or Liv's original post on how to record and upload your video segments. Remember the cut off for these submissions are MARCH 25th, so be sure to get yours in before then.


      We are also planning our RT Florida events for that weekend, some of which will include rabb.it streaming of RvB and RWBY with RT Maine and the rest of the community, and a game session hosted with various members of other community groups. There will also be various community game sessions throughout the weekend with other communities we will link for you. While we will be dealing mainly on the Xbox One with Halo 5 and GTA V, there will also be other sessions on different consoles like PC and PS4.


      In addition to online sessions, we will also be having our own anniversary meet up April 2nd (Saturday). While the location is still being decided (bouncing between Dave & Busters, Whirly Dome again, and Cloak and Blaster again), we know it will start around 3-4 pm that day so if you need to request off work or make plans, you have the information! We want this weekend to be all about you guys so if there's something you want to do, and it's in our power, we'll do our best to get it done!


      This comes up usually at least once for each of our events, but if people want to come to our meet ups but don't have a ride, make it known! Ask your fellow members and see who is in your area that might be willing to pick you up.


      We will also be having our North RT Florida meet on the weekend of May 20th in Jacksonville. Keep a look out for more information from Will later on this week as well as a Twitter poll to decide what specific day works best for everyone. Based on previous meet ups, it will likely be on a Sunday, though this, along with the location, is still to be decided. But by all means, if you have a suggestion of where to host the meet up in Jacksonville, or input in general, let us know in the comments!


      With St. Patrick's Day this week, show your pride and tag us in your photos on Twitter or upload them to Facebook. We like to see our members hanging out and enjoying themselves! In general, you can also find us at the following social sites where we post funny content, interact with other RT community groups, and keep you up to date with the most recent happenings in RT Florida.

    • Rooster Teeth International Community Day 2016

      2 years ago

      RT Florida

      Otherwise known as #RTICD16.Tell your friends!


      In case you haven't heard or have been living under a rock, the admins of each community group have gotten together for a big project for Rooster Teeth's 13th anniversary April 1st. More details on this are provided below, but first let me tell you how hard it is being in a chat with admins trying to admin admins while being admined themselves. It's about as loud and confusing as that statement. But, after a lot of re examining, tearing down what we already had and building it back up, and being scolded by the veterans of the site, we have our track set.


      So, the fun details. There are three big projects; a "Thank You" community video, a "Fans of RT" video, and meet ups during the weekend of April 1st.


      "Thank You" Community Video

      This is going to be done in AHWU-style segments in which we will film it next Sunday at our March Madness Meet Up. This will be along the lines of "We are the Florida community and we love you Rooster Teeth. Thank you for all you've done!" So be sure to show up for that if you want to be involved in this RTICD16 video.


      "Fans of RT" Community Video

      This is a personal project run by our friend, Liv, over at Rooster Buckeyes. This is different than the above video in that it is a bit more personal to each individual, showing their journey through RT. For this, you will make your own video answering a few questions that will then be spliced together in a video with everyone else's responses. Don't forget to wear your favorite RT merch!

      1. How long have you been part of the Rooster Teeth community?
      2. Who/What got you into Rooster Teeth?
      3. Who is some who inspires you that works at Rooster Teeth?
      4. Why do you love Rooster Teeth?
      5. End the video by saying "Thank You, Rooster Teeth" (You can make the thank you personal but just make sure you say thank you :D)

      Please send your video to Liv at roosterbuckeyes@gmail.com with your name and RT site username somewhere in the email so you can be given credit. You must have this in by MARCH 25TH. She wants to get as many community members involved in this project as possible because it's truly for everyone whether you've been a fan or a few days or since RvB started. Please help spread the word so everyone can be part of RTICD.


      April 1st Weekend Meet Up

      This is being done individually by groups and is still being planned on our side. So, if there is anything you would like to see done here let us know; either post it in the comments or send Will or myself a message and we'll do what we can!


      That being said, we have two ideas. Drunk Gaming Part III, Friday (April 1st) afternoon. While Drunk Gaming is fun, I would also like to do a physical met up that weekend (likely Saturday + Sunday). However, how do people feel about combining the two a bit? Dave & Buster's, games and drinks, Sunday so people under 21 won't get kicked out.


      Let us know and be sure to check out our social media sites and follow us to stay up to day on the most recent information. Especially when we just put out a new Let's Play video on our community YouTube channel. ;)
