      Hey Everyone,


      I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season. I just wanted to post a quick update on round 5 of Rooster Rumble before the holidays are in full swing. After talking with the wonderful folks over at Roo Teeth, it looks like we are going to try and have our match on Friday, January 8th (Saturday morning for them). We haven't agreed on a game yet, but I suggested GTA V. If you haven't already, please fill out your availability on the google spreadsheet and include your gamertag and other pertinent info. This competition is open to any member of RT Florida regardless of whether or not you've participated in any previous event. Feel free to sign up!!

      Rooster Rumble Roster and Date Availability

      We also have a forum thread for round 5 to discuss what games/game types we would like to play.

      Finally, if you didn't hear, we have a new forum for setting up group gaming events! Our most recent one was this past Sunday and it was freaking awesome! You can check out Victoria's recording from the RT Florida twitch account here.

      We hope you all have an amazing and safe holiday season!


      Best,

      Hello Everyone who made it out to our event last night!

      First off, thank you for coming. We had a huge turnout, and that was amazing, way more people than I expected (which was great), and everyone seemed to have a blast. Needless to say we will have more of these in the future.

      After speaking with the rest of the people at the group, it seems like our next get together will be during the Lazer Team screening. While this will most likely be for people going to the Universal screening, we encourage you guys to host your own get together before, during, or after the movie and tag us. We had lots of great photos and quotes from tonight, and apparently a new tagline "Giving birth." If you missed anything, check out our Twitter page for a quick, and quite frankly, disturbing recap of the event last night @RT_Florida(https://twitter.com/rt_florida).

      There was also a lot of suggestions saying that we should have some sort of convenient place to put people's gamertags for when we want to do game nights or just a buddy to kill stuff with. Well, lucky for you guys we already have that for your right here:

      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XTbMbglFLKIKVLkgiv76qNLLj6ixwFpaR3D_lLauMw8/edit#gid=0

      This is where we put all of our information, dates, and availability for the Rooster Rumble matches. However, it can also be used as a general information sheet for people just looking to game. Fill it out with your site username, gamertag, and other various game information, and you now have a convenient location where you're able to find all the fireteam, party, or co-op buddies you need.

      Also, if you haven't heard about the Rooster Rumble events we're taking part in, check out Will's previous post here(http://roosterteeth.com/post/51189321) and sign up if you're interested. Leave your input on what game you'd like to play, and we will gladly include you in our ranks.

      So again, thank you to everyone that came out. We appreciate the support and had a great time, and definitely hope to interact with you guys more often, in person and through online gaming sessions.


      Cheers!

      Hello RT Florida members!

      Our first meetup is only a few days away and we're making this post for a summary of everything to expect. Convenient, right?


      Date: DECEMBER 13


      Time: 6:00 PM - WHENEVER


      Location: THE CLOAK AND BLASTER PUB - Located in the Shoppes at Waterford Place Plaza

      875 Woodbury Rd, Ste 108

      Orlando, Florida 32828


      A few important notes...


      Shirts: Everyone who replied to the previous event post will receive their shirts at no cost. This is coming out of our pockets to give you guys a piece of memorabilia to commemorate how awesome it will be. Anyone who would like to buy a shirt, whether you couldn't make it, or because you'd like another one, or whatever, you can absolutely do so. Shirts are $10 a piece, just contact either myself or Will and we'll hook you up.


      Cost/Donations: This has come up a bit. Any reservation fee for the event is being covered and the shirts, as mentioned above, are at no cost to attendees, so the only things you need to worry about buying are food and drinks. This being said, if anyone did want to donate any money to the group, it'll all be put towards future events, contests, and giveaways for out little sub-community.


      Availability: We are not renting out any part of the location, so it will be a first come first serve type of deal. However, because the event starts at 6:00 pm when the pub opens, we pretty much have first dibs, though that doesn't mean other people might join later. Though, this place isn't usually packed so we'll be fine.


      Upstairs Lounge: This works in two ways- There are a few couches with open seating, and then there’s console space. Food will be more than welcomed upstairs; our server for Sunday will be Collin who will take the food and drink orders. Because he will be dealing with nearly 15 people, please be nice and be sure to tip him something at least.


      Games and Consoles: Cloak and Blaster has a library with Wii U and Xbox One consoles for their customers to use, but they also have a policy regarding playing time everyone should be aware of. They require $5 per half hour, however, because we're such an awesome group, we are covering this fee for the time that our group will be there. Also, they do not allow any personal games, so please do not bring any of your own. They also have a collection of tabletop games for everyone to play, but these will be first-come, first-serve as the night goes on.

      We would love for people to film and photograph the event to have to help promote the group and future events. If you do record anything that you would like to share, let either Will or myself know, as well as any questions you may have in general.


      And of course, as a common rule, don't be a dick.


      We're looking forward to seeing everyone Sunday!

    • Rooster Rumble Round 4 Recap and Upcoming Round 5

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      In a sad turn of events, The Laddies of RT decided to withdraw from the Rooster Rumble competition. However, this means RT Florida has secured it's first "victory" in the RR competition! Hopefully this means there will be more victories in the future. ;)

      RT Florida: 1-3

      Looking ahead, we are challenging the awesome people of RooTeeth! As the visitors, it will be our duty to challenge them to a game and pick a set of potential dates to have the competition on. If you have not already, please fill out your availability on the google spreadsheet and include your gamertag and other pertinent info. This competition is open to any member of RT Florida regardless of whether or not you've participated in any previous event. Feel free to sign up!!

      Also, please use the new Round 5 thread to help choose a game and time for the challenge.

      P.S.

      If you are planning to go to the Orlando meetup this upcoming Sunday (12/13), please respond to the previous journal Victoria posted to let her know. :)

      RT Florida

      Okay everyone. Based on people's availability, it looks like we're doing this thing Sunday the 13th at 6pm. Surprisingly, that was the day everyone was free (or at least able to get free). So, it'll be at the Cloak & Blaster Pub in East Orlando, right by the 408 behind Waterford Lakes. Address is below.

      This is the important bit, I'll contact the owners and reserve our event so there aren't any issues, but for that we need to know how many people are coming. So, please let us know if you can make it. If you are 100% sure, great! Post it in the comments below. If you are pretty sure but you need to get off work, or ask parents, or something, let us know that is your situation so we can include you as well (we'd much rather be over on our party number than under). And if you can't make it, well, we'll miss seeing you there, but wish us a good luck in the comments if you'd like.

      We are making this happen!

      It will be buy your own food and drink as the night goes on, however, we are making shirts to commemorate this first meet up for RT Florida. You can put your sizes along with your responses or send me a direct message @ArnettV and I'll be sure to get them made. Sizing will be the same as the Rooster Teeth store, you can find the chart here (Note: shirts are men's top size so use that section if you are having trouble deciding on what size).

      I know most of you are good at responding in the first day or two after these posts are made, but because the meet up is only two weeks away however, please try to get your responses in as soon as possible (for event availability and sizes) so I don't need to do a rush order. If for some reason you posted too late and we couldn't get a shirt for you, sorry, but we'll try to get one to you eventually.

      Looking forward to seeing everyone there! If there are any questions, please let us know.

    • Dates and Locations

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Okay everyone, I figure we have enough responses from the poll to pick out a date. Results are below.


      After Thanksgiving, but before Christmas (beginning of December) - 8
      Any time, sign me up - 7
      After the new year (like it says, sometime early 2016) - 7


      So it looks like we'll have a meet up the beginning of December to start with. Then, as Chris suggested, we'll also do one in January for the Lazer Team premier. So January 27th we can all meet up for that and figure out some details for that later. As for the beginning of December, how does the second weekend work? I was thinking either Friday afternoon (the 11th) or Saturday afternoon (the 12th). Hell, it could even be that Sunday too (the 13th).

      So comment below on your available/preferred times for a meet up. As for me, I'm going to be out of town that first week (2-7th), so above are my dates though it could also be the weekend of the 18th (but that's the week before Christmas). Like I said, leave your dates below.
      As for location, I know some of you posted in the previous post, but my vote is still Cloak and Blaster. If you know of some place else however you think would be fun, let us know! This whole group is about community, we want to include everyone.

    • RT Florida Orlando meet up dates

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Hi, everyone, Victoria here. I wanted to start talking to everyone about possible dates for a get together in Orlando. Since this would be our first official meet up, it'll only be a small outing, probably an afternoon somewhere. I have a location in mind, but for now I'd like to talk to everyone about dates and availability.

      Since it's nearing the end of the year and the holidays are around the corner, I want to see what time works best for everyone so we can maximize attendance. There's a poll below. I would greatly appreciate if you could take a moment to answer, provide your feedback, and if I'm being an idiot and forgot some time, add another option if you feel the need to.

      Please follow the link here to vote: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1LZoilF_qBXUZTBLya...

      So please provide your input and let us know what dates work best for you. As for the location, my idea was The Cloak & Blaster pub in East Orlando. It's a really cool geeky bar with themed foods, drink, free board and video games to play, as well as a kick ass lounge. You can check it out on their webpage above. If anyone else has ideas or suggestions on where to hold our first meet up, please add it in the comments below, but for now this is just a suggestion. The main focus for this post is to go over timing.

      I look forward to meeting you all in person. Cheers!

    • Rooster Rumble Scheduling: Rounds 2 and 3

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Hey All!

      Unfortunately, we had to reschedule the match with RTUK again. To make this match open to more of us and easier to play, we're going to play Halo MCC, Swat mode, teams of 4, game to 5. That being said, we would want to get this match done this week. If you are available this week for some fun Halo MCC times, please follow the links below and let us know when you're available. We'd like to play earlier in the afternoon so our friends across the pond don't have to stay up too late. ;)

      http://roosterteeth.com/forum/rt-florida/topic/3072159

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

      We've also reached out to the Afterstreamers to get ready for our round 3 matches. Nothing has been planned out yet, but go ahead and head to the new forum thread to see when we're all available.

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

      On a side note. Let's plan on trying to have community days around our local areas this month. This could be anything from a big meetup to a few friends hanging out watching RT awesomeness. All of you Orlando peeps, see if you guys can get a big meet going. I know there a quite a few of you there. ;)

      Hope you all have a fantastic week!

      -Will
