      In addition to our video weekly update, we also have a new video out showing our RT Florida Field Day from a couple weeks ago. Watch a bunch of nerds fail at being active!




      We finally published the results from that monster of a survey we asked you all to take a few months ago and we think it really helped in figuring out the direction of this group. You can see a summary of the results for yourself here:

      We have a brand new shirt out in our store. That's right, brand new, and a lot of you have been asking for it. Check out the God Dammit Ricky shirt now available, featuring three of our members; Chris, Jake, and of course, Ricky! Shout out to @VanillaGinger3 for making the character art!

      Be sure to check out this cool piece of work one of our members did. When it comes to the debate of pineapple on pizza, which side do you stand for? Thanks to @InvaderSham for gathering member photos and making it!

    • Survey Results

      4 months ago

      RT Florida

      We had you guys fill out a survey at the beginning of the year about the group, how it's been doing, and what you would like to see happen with a lot of great feedback. Here is a summary of the results below!


      Meet Ups

      bJBVV0W.jpg

      While we would like the RT Florida South branch to be able to host more than one a month, it is unfortunately not going to be feasible at this time since we only have one admin down there. But we have talked to David who coordinates a lot of the events down there for RT Florida and starting this summer, we should be having monthly events for you all!


      ZhddNeB.jpg

      Multiple people have shown interest in hosting meet ups and we were excited to see the responses. However stepping up on your own or when asked is a different story. Over the next few months we will be reaching out to people about hosting meet ups.


      VcPwFtI.jpg


      Recordings and LPs

      We’re excited to do these again and got a lot of good responses so we hope to start soon! We will contact individuals who expressed interest in recording videos, building games, and planning playthroughs, as well as work to alternate participants so everyone gets a chance. There was also a large suggestion for Let’s Watch style videos, so we are also looking into these.


      VqFXwlY.jpg


      5m435O6.jpg

      We understand that a lot of you are happy with how our game nights are run, but would like them to have more notice and be more frequent. We will do our best to provide on these two things.


      Based on the results, you all are pretty happy with the current dynamic of PC game nights but would like more diversity in the games every now and then. We will work on changing this up to keep PC game nights more entertaining to the group.


      When it comes to streaming these game nights, most of you are okay with streaming them. Currently we don’t stream all the events, and we will be keeping it this way based on the results. We are also going to make sure to consistently ask those playing if they are alright with being streamed before actually doing so. We will also try to mention ahead of time if game nights are going to be a streamed event or not.


      Projects

      We were glad to see who was able to do what and who had what skills. If we need help with specific projects, we now know who can help and will definitely be reaching out for current and future projects soon! We of course appreciate any help and if anyone already has a project, series, etc., we are more than glad to help or even promote it.


      Social

      Majority of people use the Twitter, Facebook, the Rooster Teeth website, and YouTube the most. Luckily this is where we host most of our content! There was some interest in Instagram and Snapchat social accounts for the group and we are looking into this.


      When it came to how our events are hosted, most were okay with how they are on Facebook, but there was some discontent with this as well. Because of that, we are going to start creating events on the RT site and linking them along with the Facebook ones as well.


      It was listed in the survey, and we plan on addressing this in the future about the group shirts. Many people wanted a new group shirt that is designed from the community or through a contest. We are working on this and will post about it when the details are worked out.


      Weekly Updates received fairly positive reviews with some suggestions that vary from adding images, videos, community spot light segments, and QA sessions. We will begin working those in immediately as well as creating a newsletter for those who want it.


      Twitch Stream

      8P10gIA.jpg


      We asked about longer 6-8 hour streams on Saturday and have gauged your interest. We are passing this along to our head streamer and will let you know what the decision is on this. Hint: Most of the feedback was positive!


      Podcasts

      A lot of you like the podcast, which is great, and even provided some good topics you would like to hear. We plan on having more guests from the community and others. Plus we are even looking into creating a second podcast from the group, so keep an ear out for that soon.


      If you have any questions or comments, please let us know and we will do our best to address them!

      First off, thanks for everyone's support during RTICD. It meant a lot and we hope you enjoyed the events.

      And don't forget that we did an online stream that night where a meme was born. Check out the WHAT'S UP GUYS MDB Highlight vid on our channel!

      Take care and have a wonderful week!

So be sure to take a break from your Mass Effect Play through and come join us at 8 pm EST in Discord!


      https://www.facebook.com/events/381648758868671/

      Top of the morning to you all! Happy late update everyone!


      We're not naming names, but a certain someone went on vacation and didn't tell anyone to write the update. Victoria- It was Victoria. 


      Past that, we hope everyone managed to get their Let's Play Live tickets! Which event are you going to? Want to hang out with some cool people beforehand? Are you wondering why we're asking so many questions? Well, It's because we're excited!!


      If you do plan on going to either of the events though, we do suggest checking out our pre-meet ups in each location. See the event details below (now with Rooster Teeth events)!

      This weekend is our Field Day event in Orlando. Come join us as we run around outside, make fools of our physical abilities, and ultimately collapse into a puddle of our own sweat. Sounds fun, right? We have a lot of events planned and participants will be broken into Red and Blue teams to compete for a trophy. Yeah, an actual trophy! Check out more details at the link below and be on the look out for a list of activities/competitions soon:

      You guys all did a great job of filling out that massive survey we posted a while ago and we got a lot of good feedback from it. We're mulling over the responses and hope to have an update for you soon!


      We hope to see you this weekend! Happy community day! How are you repping your RT pride?

      Tickets go live for Double Gold members on Wednesday!


      We also released a video today. One of our Extra Life stretch goals was to have Sergio, one of our members react to a Greg Miller video whom he is not a fan of. Watch for your self!




      Next week we have our Field Day meet. Don't forget to keep up with the event below for an address/location. We have a lot of fun events planned!


      https://www.facebook.com/events/1344205218977193/


      RTICD is coming up soon and we're working on a thank you Rooster Teeth video in the style of the Dear YouTube one they put out. Anyway, we're looking for submissions by the community; a short video of you saying "Thank you, Rooster Teeth." We even suggest showing off some of your swag in the background or by wearing it.


      If you plan on coming to the Field Day event in Orlando next week, we'll be recording a group one for RT Florida. If you aren't going to be at the event, you can still record one and turn it in, they just need to be in landscape and 720p minimum (1080p preferred). Please send all submissions to [email protected].


      Let us know if you have questions.

      RT Florida

      Hello!


      Let us ask you guys something? What's better than kicking ass with some Extra Life stretch goals? Why, recording them and posting them to the Internet of course! We've fulfilled two more posted below:



      How about that, huh?


      In event news, this weekend we're starting Drunk Gaming back up again! If you're new to the group or have never participated in Drunk Gaming before, it's almost exactly as it sounds. We play video games as a group and stream our faces, reactions, drinks, and antics live on YouTube. A recurring theme is that someone "dies" (passes out) for the night, and the next event is named after them. 


      RULES (because they're necessary): Every time you die (outside of free roaming) you take a drink, every time you lose a match you take a drink. Drinks can range from sips to shots. 


      This is a drinking function so we do ask that if you are underage or do not wish to drink but still want to participate in this event, then you do so in the Google Hangout live stream/chat that will be posted the day of the event. We have plenty of regular, non-drinking game functions that you are more than welcome to join at other times. However, this is specifically a drinking function. More details at the link below:


      https://www.facebook.com/events/2202103956680499/


      We have also finally put together to Field Day we're been talking about so often. Join us March 19th in Orlando (specific location still TBD) for some fun outside games like tug-o-war, an obstacl course, capture the flag, and other fun games! We're even breaking you guys into teams (Red and Blue of course). Then we'll all clean up and go someplace afterwards for some food and drinks. And if you don't want to get all sweaty and gross, but would still like to participate, we can always use judges and people to take video! More details here:


      https://www.facebook.com/events/1344205218977193/


      Don't forget about that survey that decides the future of this group. We're still taking submissions!

      Hey everyone,


      We have a nice little survey we'd like you to fill out so we can get a read on how the community is doing and which direction we should head in. And when we said little, we may have been lying a bit. It's actually a few sections long but each question is meant to help each department of RT Florida so all responses are appreciated:


      https://goo.gl/forms/5z0NzDxZtDnAtV8C2


      We're also working on out Field Day event again. After putting it off due to the holidays, we're ready to bring it back but need to know a day that people are available. So please fill out this survey (and the one above, please!) so we can accommodate as many people as possible:


      https://goo.gl/forms/TXpUMIVLQmJ62gCq2


      While a bit last minute, tonight we have a second RWBY game night at 9 pm. We hope to see people there so they can get high scores for RT World's throwdown!


      https://www.facebook.com/events/726402617524776/


      It's a week for video games as tomorrow we play some GTA V for double cash and experience on Xbox One. Come join us as we deploy mayhem!


      https://www.facebook.com/events/201301030346789/


      Then Wednesday we have an Astroneer game night. But we still need to decide the console!  Be sure to take the poll and let us know what platform you'd like to play Astroneer on:


      https://www.facebook.com/events/1565085453505934


      Don't forget, each Thursday is our PC game nights in GTA V. Join us on the discord server usually around 9 pm EST for some non-console fun!


      Speaking of PC game nights, this Friday is another Golf With Your (soon to be not) Friends. Be prepared for more fun, more craziness, and more screaming! Be sure to pick it up on Steam if you haven't already http://store.steampowered.com/app/431240/ and also make sure you're in the RTFL Discord for more fun with voice chat.
