      Also, we are working on creating an intro card for our YouTube videos and want your opinions (as this is a community group after all).

    • Rooster Rumble is back!!!

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Hey All!


      As the title of this journal indicates, Rooster Rumble is back in action! This season will be set up as a double elimination tournament with each round consisting of a specific game type (e.g. Halo Round). They are currently accepting teams right now, so I went ahead and signed us up. There is currently no schedule set up for when this tournament will take place, so be sure to check back for more info. You can also find out more on their group page here.


      If you haven't already, head over to the group gaming google doc and fill in your information. This will be one of the main ways we will make teams for RR matches.

      Can't wait for RT_Florida to kick some major ass!

    • March Meet Up Madness

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Alrighty. I couldn't sleep last night so ended up planning a lot of stuff until 3 am, including our next meet up. May you appreciate what my body hates.


      We will be hosting our next meet up at WhirlyDome off I-Drive on Orlando on March 20th (Sunday) at 3:30 pm.


      6464 International Dr,

      Orlando, FL 32819

      http://whirlydome.com


      As may have seen me explaining previously, WhirlyDome has a lot of fun activities such as whirly ball (just google it), lazer tag (yes, I will be using a Z due to the movie), bowling, an arcade, a lazer maze (like the one that was previous seen on Free Play), and a full bar and restaurant all inside the building. It's pretty sweet.


      Why 3:30 you ask, it's such an odd time. Well, starting at 4 pm they have a happy hour for both their drinks and their games. People can begin to gather at 3:30 pm, then the real fun can kick off at 4 pm. From 4 - 8 pm, you can pay $25 dollars for all-you-can-play whirly ball and lazer tag. Normally it is $8 per game, which isn't a bad price, but if you intend on playing more than 3 games between the two of these, you may want to opt for the special. They also have drink (and possibly food?) happy hour during the same time, so it'll be a big money saver for people too. Menu here: http://whirlydome.com/bloodhound-brew/


      While WhirlyDome opens earlier, they also close earlier at 10:00 pm. However, going there at 4 still gives us six hours to have fun. And worst case, we can all invade Steak N' Shake like last time. It was a blast; new friends, fried foods, milkshakes. What's not to love?


      We had said we were going to do this at the end of February/beginning of March, HOWEVER we had no planning done and really wanted to advertise and give people a chance to arrange their schedules. So, no excuses that you couldn't get off work; I'm looking a you Jake. We'll be talking about it until the actual day, and even then, tweet your ears off with hype and info like... free prizes? I guess you'll just have to stay tuned to find out.


      Also, if you can make it, but need a ride or want to save on gas and tolls, talk to your fellow members. I'm sure they'll love to help out. I myself took a car full of people to one of the Lazer Team screenings and we had fun, plus there was less cars being used. Yay environment!


      So, as per the usual, post if you are attending or considering attending in the comments below so we may get an accurate head count on what to expect. There is not RSVP required, you can just show up without any notice the day of, but we still like to have and idea on what we are dealing with.


      Any questions? Comments? Concerns? Not sure if it'll be fun? Let us know below or contact myself (use that awesome new question feature!) to answer whatever ridiculous notions you have about how awesome I am- I mean, the event. Yeah, that one.


      Cheers.

    • RT Florida Meet Up

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Hey, everyone!


      Planning of our next meet up is underway. So far we have an incredible demand for lazer tag, someplace with food and alcohol, and definitively name tags. We will likely be hosting this in Orlando again since it's pretty centrally located for everyone coming from Tampa, Gainsville, Jacksonville, and while it may be a bit of a drive, also Ft Myers and South(ish) Florida.

      With all this in mind, we are looking at Whirly Dome off I-Drive: http://whirlydome.com/


      It has food and drinks, an arcade, this interesting sport called whirly ball (think go-carts mixed with hockey and basketball... Yeah), a mission impossible-style lazer maze, and bowling. So, a bit of everything, and the best part, it opens before six. Cloak and Blaster was a good place, but it opened a bit too late for people who had to drive to Orlando and back the same night.


      Also, we are looking at the end of February/beginning of March to do this. Be sure to let us know your availability or when (days, time or day, parts of Orlando even) would work best for you so we can include as many people as possible. Last time we managed a good 12-15 people. Let's beat that!


      Of course, we are still open to ideas as well. If you think there's something we should add/do different compared to the last meet up. We want this to be a community-driven group, so if there is something you want to do, show off, advertise, host, or just straight up rant about either during a meet up or any other time, let us know and we'll help make it happen.


      Also, if you're new to the group or have been with us for a while and just don't know where to start, check out our previous post on how to get started with RT Florida. We have many different sub-groups/forums for nearly anything, and if you don't see one you need, create one!

      So, any ideas?


      Cheers.

    • An Introduction to Everyone New (and Not So New)

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      How'd everyone enjoy the movie! I did, we all did. No one didn't. That's a fact, straight from RT Florida so it must be real. Right?


      Now, we had a lot of new people join over this past week, so this is going to sever as a sort of introduction to anyone new to the group.


      First off, we appreciate everyone coming out, and Rooster Teeth did as well. Congratulations to people who got to meet Matt at the Orlando and Jacksonville this past weekend. If you got some cool picture, we'd love to see them, so upload them to the group or post them on our Twitter @RT_Florida. We also had another giveaway Saturday with a new round of winners so congratulations to those who won your prizes. See the winners here!

      And one unnamed winner who didn't have an account


      Did you buy something with your gift card? Send us a picture with your swag!


      If you're new, we suggest you keep on reading because we have some really good information on how to get started within the group. Also, we really want RT Florida to be group driven, so if you have a game session, meet up, or anything else you want to do, let us know and we'll help you set it up and get the word out. Starting out, we suggest stopping by our location forum and letting us know where your from. General locations are fine, but it also lets you know what other members are in your area:

      http://roosterteeth.com/forum/rt-florida/topic/302...


      We also have a forum for group gaming sessions where you can put together a game/party/session/group/co-op/whatever. Currently this is a general gaming group, however if you would like to make one for PS4, PC, or any other obscure system... Go for it! This weekend we're even having our first drunk gaming night, Saturday at 5pm so bring your game and liquor for some idiotic fun. Check out the group to find out more information on our gaming within the group:

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

      We also have an RT Florida Gaming Roster to put your gamer tag, console, and availability. This is very useful for when you want to put together your own game night. We use it constantly for our game sessions (mixed with the forum), and it makes everything so much easier. So fill it out and know who you can game with and when!

      https://docs.google.com/a/toria.me/spreadsheets/d/...


      We had a lot of people asking about shirts as well. We were giving them away and selling them at the Lazer Team events, and now we've made them available for shipping online! Check out the shop on our website below (also, we have a website):

      http://rtflorida.com/


      The site is still pretty buggy so we can't upgrade our group description, but we also have a variety of social sites for you to check out and join. See them below:


      Twitter: @RT_Florida

      Facebook: RT Florida

      YouTube: RT Florida

      Twitch: RT Florida

      GTA Crew: RTFL

      (Who would have guessed that everything would be named RT Florida, am I right?)


      If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask us. You can post it in the respective forum. Use the Contact Us on our website, tweet us @RT_Florida, or send Will (WB_Spartan) or myself (ArnettV) a message and we'll help you out however we can!


      Cheers!

      There are two people missing from our list, so if you won something and don't see your name above, please, let us know in the comments, or email us at admin@rtflorida.com. We want to make sure you're credited and received your prizes!

      To anyone who won a gift card, you will find that in the inbox of the email address you provided shortly.

      Remember kids, pics or it didn't happen!

      Now on to fun stuff.


      Especially if you were at the Orlando Lazer Team screening, you probably heard us yelling about a very special guest coming to Florida this Saturday. That's right, Saturday, January 30th, Matt Hullum will be attending the premier. He will be there at the 7:05 showing. Tickets are still available so be sure to get yours before they run out. Get yours here!


      http://ow.ly/XEz3R


      We do have some events planned so definitely be sure to stick around. Before the movie, meet us at the Splitsville Bowling alley next door for some food, drinks, and fun.

      Right after the movie, you guessed it, we're having another giveaway! So stick around outside the theater for some fun questions and your chance to get some cool prizes. After all that, join us back at Splitsville for a fun night of bowling. Don't think bowling is cool? Check out our photos from last night after the Orlando Lazer Team premier, everyone there will tell you otherwise.


      http://www.splitsvillelanes.com/location/orlando/


      We have reached out to Matt and the RT community team to see if he will be available to join us before or after the event, so keep an ear out for more information on that. We do ask however, that if Matt is able to join us, please do not crowd or push at him as with all the hard work they've been putting into this movie, plus RTXAU, needless to say everyone's a bit exhausted. So please be kind and respectful.

      More information soon!


      Cheers,

      Victoria

    • Lazer Team Theatrical Release

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Hey guys, so I know we haven't even fit the first Lazer Team mark, but I figured we should also see who is also going to the theatrical releases of the movie this weekend. More information on the different locations and theaters can be found in Caleb's post here:


      http://www.roosterteeth.com/post/51196577


      I for one an considering going to the Disney one in Orlando (probably Friday or Saturday). Just need to see how much money I throw at the movie this Wednesday first. :)


      If you're considering going to any of the theatrical Lazer Team releases, post in the comments or open a forum and maybe we can get another gathering together.


      Cheers!

    • Funny Story...

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      So last night, a few of us were getting ready to start the King's Fall raid in Destiny. I was checking a few things out on the RT group page while we were getting people added to the fire team. While scrolling through the page, I looked up to see if people had been added. When I looked back down, my finger was accidentally on the "Leave Group" button. "Uh oh," was all anyone else heard in the party chat. I left the group... and I was the only admin. "I'm a f**king idiot" were my next words.

      Long story short, RT Florida was without an admin for 6 hours last night.... my bad. However, thanks to the site admins, both Victoria and I are now admins. Dodged a bullet for sure. Lol :)

      Not sure I'm going to live this one down.

    • Guys, we did a thing!!

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Hey guys,


      If you haven't already seen, the AHWU opener we made at the Orlando meet up was chosen for AHWU #299! As Victoria pointed out on her facebook post, our coolness has been recognized by the AH crew! Mad props to all you guys for being awesome and making this group freaking legit.

      In Rooster Rumble news, we lost our last match against the RT fans from down under in GTA V making our final record 1-4. This may or may not have been due to someone's inability to land a helicopter... but he wants everyone to know that he's sorry and that he's working on it (it may or may not be me...maybe). I'm not sure when the next Rooster Rumble will be, but until then, let's keep the group gaming sessions coming! There have been talks of having one this Friday in Minecraft on the XBONE to start the RT_Florida world. so keep your eyes open for updates from our social media accounts.

      Hope you all have an awesome week!!
