      RT Florida

      Hello lovely people! We only have a few bits of news for you today but that does include set information for our next house party.


      But firstly, I just want to give everyone a heads up that I will be out of town for most of this week and unreachable. Hence why this is being posted a bit earlier. So, if you have anything that needs to be brought to attention, or questions, or what have you, feel free to contact Will (@WB_Spartan) for anything you need. Well, within reason.


      And of course, who would I be if I didn't constantly remind you about our South (West) meet up THIS WEEKEND. That's right, it's finally here. So make sure to stop by AMF Gulf Gate Lanes for some bowling and while you're at it, thank Ariana for being an amazing person and hosting the even for all you beauties. As always, find more information, including time and an address, at the Facebook event below.


      https://www.facebook.com/events/1748847122069963/


      Now, about that house party. The first one was such a blast so we were excited to do another. Based on the results everyone provided in the poll, the date will be Saturday, August 13th starting at 2pm. Just as previously, the exactly location will be released closer to the event, but for a general idea, it is in the Waterford area in east Orlando. Be sure to keep an eye on the Facebook event linked below for updates and information and we'll be sure to recap them in our Weekly Updates as they come out.


      https://www.facebook.com/events/318247985188518/


      Also, you guys asked for more, so we're going to be having a RWBY: Grimm Eclipse game night for PC this coming Sunday. We start gathering at 7, so make sure you've added yourself to our Discord server and filled out our gaming roster so we can get you in a game that night. Obviously since the game is only 4 players max per team, we will be meeting up in the "General" voice channel and split up into different groups from there. As always, more details in the Facebook event below along with the Discord and roster links.

      Lastly, be sure to check out g1 Gamedays on the ScrewAttack website. Their aim is to give members from the community a chance to play games with the ScrewAttack, Achievement Hunter, Funhaus, and Rooster Teeth communities. They play games every Wednesday and Saturday at 9pm EST and all Gamedays are streamed at www.Twitch.tv/g1_Gamedays. For more information on g1 Gamedays, check out their post in our group here:

      Guys, we're old enough to drink!


      Before we get to the RWBY meet ups this Wednesday, I first would like to mention a game night tomorrow afternoon on Xbox One. We'll be playing some of the new Cunning Stunts update in GTA V at 8 pm. For more information see the group gaming session here:


      http://roosterteeth.com/forum/rt-florida/topic/3072982?page=10


      And now for RWBY. Please don't forget the screenings this Wednesday. If you bought a ticket and the event was confirmed, we look forward to seeing you there. If you haven't bought a ticket but would still like to go, check out an event near you! We have listed the confirmed Florida events below:


      Jacksonville RWBY Volume 2 Screening


      Orlando RWBY Volume 2 Screening


      Tampa RWBY Volume 2 Screening


      South Miami RWBY Volume 2 Screening


      And of course, be sure to let us know which even your are going to in our Facebook events below. The South Miami events is on the RWBY Cosplayers of South East Florida page until we are able to find an advocate for RT Florida in that area. But we still love them regardless!

      https://www.facebook.com/events/1748847122069963/


      Again, a big thank you to Ariana for taking on the responsibility of running the meet up. We would love to be able to create meet ups everywhere across the state, but unfortunately that is something we are unable to do ourselves at the moment. That is why we are always looking for people to step up volunteer their time and effort for the community to assist in running events in their area. If anyone is ever interested, feel free to contact us and we will help how we can!


      We also have another poll for your guys. And guess what? It's for the RT Florida House Party: The Sequel! It will be located in Orlando again, but please be sure to fill out the form at the link below to let us know your availability, what works best for you, and what you thought we could have improved from the last one. Don't worry, these are always anonymous.

    • RTFL Weekly Update #18 - Post RTX Wrap Up

      11 months ago

      RT Florida

      Why is this update so late? Well, in case you've been living under a rock, RTX 2016 was last week and RT Florida was there! It was so great meeting everyone and we hope you found some new friends in the community.


      On the note of RTX, we want to do a community collage video of all the fun you/we/everyone had at RTX and require content! So pictures, videos, panoramics, Polaroids, self painted murals that took 3 years- we want them all. Add a copy to the Google Drive folder here and be sure to add your name to the credit sheet so we can be sure to give you, well, proper credit.


      https://drive.google.com/drive/u/1/folders/0By4ai-...


      As RTX winds down, the group might be a bit mellow for the next week or two while people recover (especially their wallets). But that doesn't mean we still aren't here! In fact, we're all over the place, just see all our social links below.


      For events coming up, we have a few planned out later in July (rest now while you still can). We have our Universal Meet Up and a whole slew of RWBY Volume 2 screenings! And of course we will be having another after event meet up in Orlando for those of you who will be there. It''s another bowling event off OBT where you can find more details here:


      https://www.facebook.com/events/540515736138725/


      Be sure to check the Team RWBY website for a screening near you and make it out to meet all the fantastic people you will ever meet! If there's a screening that isn't quite confirmed yet, tweet us @RT_Florida and we'll help you out! If you have an event planned for before, after, or during(?) a screening, let us know and we'll help you promote it. Don't have one planned but would like to, we can help you set that up too!


      That's about all we have for you this week. Keep an eye out for more updates in the future, it was great meeting all of you, and remember, you are the greatest human beings in the galaxy!

    • RTFL Weekly Update #17

      11 months ago

      RT Florida

      GUYS! RTX is this week! ARE YOU EXCITED?


      Ahem, sorry for all the caps. Just needed to get that out. Now, seriously though, RTX is this weekend and we're going to be there. The question is, are you? If so, we want to see you there!


      We're having a meet up in Austin on Rainey Street. You can find more details at the links below. Do you have friends from other states or countries you want to bring along? Good! Bring them. The more the merrier and we want to meet them too. Chances are we'll have a few people from Maine joining us as well!


      Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1763170997261807/

      RT Event: http://www.roosterteeth.com/event/rt-florida-rtx-m...


      We know most people are adults and responsible and whatnot, but make sure to stay safe and follow the convention rules while you're out there. Oh, and don't give the Guardians a hard time, they're just doing the their jobs and trying to make RTX fun for everyone.


      And just a bit of advice from a few veteran attendees to the newbies, or anyone who just has questions:


      1. Pick up your badge early

      If you can, pick up your badge early. Like, the day before early. It will save you a LONG wait the morning of.


      2. RTX Lines

      Man, the lines for panels can a pain in the butt! If you're not sure whether you'll make it into a panel because of the lines, subscribe to their Twitter for up to the date notifications. If you end up missing a panel, make sure you have back up plans because chances are, it will happen.


      3. Check out the RTX app

      The thing is a life saver for planning out your schedule, getting reminders, keeping up with schedule changes, maps of the convention and city, an event list, etc. You get the idea. It's available for iOS and Android!


      4. After hours Events

      Speaking of events, RTX has so many after hour things to do from actual convention plans like Theater Mode Live and the VIP party, to community events like our own Florida meet up. Take a look on the forums or ask around on what there is. Can't find anything but really want to do something? Ask us!


      5. Meet new people!

      One of Rooster Teeth's prime features is community. Go out and interact with your members, whether you know them or not. We promise you'll walk away with a handful of new friends if you try.


      6. Mind your wardrobe

      Austin is hot. Just about as hot as Florida, if not more so. Be prepared, wear shorts, and as a courtesy to others, make sure to shower and wear deodorant. I know it's a weird thing to say, but there are going to be tens of thousands of people crammed into one room, you don't want to add to the smell.


      Any more questions, feel free to ask us, or check out their 10 Things to Know post with more official times and info.

    • Rooster Rumble Recap

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Hey Everyone,


      After a hard fought battle against RT NY in the losers bracket finals (Overwatch), our run in the Rooster Rumble tournament has ended. I want to give a huge shout out and thank you to all of you who participated and represented RT Florida in this community gaming tournament. We would not have made it without you. Another shout out to all of you who took the time to watch and cheer on your fellow members on our Twitch streams. Having your fellow community members cheering you on really makes a difference.


      Throughout the RR tournament, we have made some great friends with RT members and communities across the world. Whether it's the fine people of RT UK, our friends up north of RT Georgia, or the folks down under at Roo Teeth, we have even more people to share in awesome gaming experiences. I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to some rematches (looking at you RT NY).


      I've included the bracket so you can see our awesome adventure to the losers bracket finals. We came back from a loss against Rooster Speak in Worms to win 4 in a row landing us in the losers bracket finals. That was the longest wining streak in the losers bracket (tied with GGG at the moment for the entire tournament).


      Dx2QJkt.jpg


      Be sure to check up on the RT NY vs. GGG finals matches scheduled for after RTX. Not sure who to root for, but GGG never beat us, so....

      Looking forward to some redemption in the next Rooster Rumble.


      One of these ---> <3

      P.S. Don't forget tonight is Drunk Gaming Part IV: Make Better Mistakes starting at 7 pm. Rules can be found in the RTFL Weekly Update # 16 or on the Facebook event page.

    • RTFL Weekly Update #16

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Hello all!


      Hope everyone had a fun weekend. Good news is, we were able to have our beach day and it went very well. Until we were chased off the beach by a thunderstorm that is. Still, we had some lunch, saw a movie, and it was a great time. We even buried someone. You can see a few pictures here:


      https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.4943451...


      Because that worked out, that means we're keeping our original date for Drunk Gaming this up coming weekend. Please note that was are enacting a new rule if you are playing, every time you die, you take a drink. This excludes free roaming a map, and a drink can be a sip, a gulp, a shot, whatever. You just must consume alcohol in some form. To avoid confusion, if you are not playing but would still like to participate, we ask that you use the chat for the Google Hangout which will be posted the day of the event. I know there are a lot more rules this time around but this is because this is our Drunk Gaming function where alcohol plays a big part. So if you do not drink or are underage, we do have other sober, regular gaming nights you can feel free to participate in. To find these, keep an eye on our social media listed below, or the Group Gaming Session forum here:


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


      Other than that, we look forward to seeing you this Saturday for Drunk Gaming Part IV - Make Better Mistakes:


      https://www.facebook.com/events/897903476987653/


      Last night was our Rooster Rumble match against Rooster Speak (again) and the results were fantastic! We won and are moving onto the next round against RT NY in 6v6 Overwatch. We want to try to have this done BEFORE RTX, but we also want to win. So we're going to have a practice round to find a team that can kick their butts! It's tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9 pm for Xbox One so if you would like to join in on the Rooster Rumble epicness, please check out the details here:


      https://www.facebook.com/events/589591131213303/


      And of course, be sure to fill out the RT Florida Gaming Roster so we know who's available when, what days work best for the match, etc., etc.


      RT Florida Gaming Roster


      Not that I have to remind anyone, but RTX is NEXT WEEK! We look forward to seeing everyone there and hey, maybe we'll all make some new friends. I will however remind you guys about the RT Florida RTX meet up Friday afternoon. This is subject to change due to the VIP party being that night, but when we hear more about that, we will let you know. In the meantime, you can find the events for Facebook and the RT site below.

    • A Little Help from the Community

      1 year ago

      RT Florida

      Hey everyone,


      A bit of a request to ask. Someone from our group recently found a kitten trapped in a bush and are currently housing it as he looks for a home for her. I'd much rather she go to a good home than end up in a shelter. If you know anyone who is interested, help is appreciated. If you are interested in adopting this cute little thing, please let us know. I'd even be willing to drive out of Orlando to drop her off or meet someone if it's a little farther. You can see a picture below.


      13435300_1418511348174672_33031073357110

      Help is appreciated and we want to make sure she goes to a good home! Feel free to leave a comment or message @ArnettV here on the site.

      Ssh, sssh, ssssssh! If you listen closely, you can hear RTX just over two weeks away. Excited?


      Anyway, we have a few event updates for today's, well, update. First off being, our Rooster Rumble match against Rooster Speak has been postponed so we will need people to update their availability in the Gaming Roster again. Please find this below:


      #gid=0">RT Florida Gaming Roster


      We want to get this done ASAP. But following that, we have our RTX Beach Day Send Off this Saturday. I know, I know, the weather says it's going to rain. But you know what? Meteorologists aren't always right! Not to mention the event starts at noon and Central Florida rain doesn't usual set in until 4 or later. So again, don't worry, we do have backup plans, and enjoy the intense burning sun in the meantime. More information can be found on the Facebook even below where you should keep an eye out for the next couple of days when we decide who will be bringing what.


      https://www.facebook.com/events/635215523295826/


      Then the following week we have our fourth Drunk Gaming night with a new rule initiated; every time you die/lose a game, you must take a drink. This will be up to you based on how much you would like to drink (a sip or a whole shot), but because there was actually little drinking involved in the last Drunk Gaming, we felt the need to initiate this rule. If you can't or don't drink, we apologize that you will be unable to join, but feel free to hang out in the Google Hangouts chat and make fun of us. We have plenty of sober game nights throughout the month.


      https://www.facebook.com/events/897903476987653/


      And of course we're going to have a meet up at RTX. Who do you think we are, cockbites? Well, we are, but that's not the point. An event has been created for it on Facebook and on the RT site (in case someone doesn't have Facebook). As per all our other meet ups, the goal is just to hang out with great people, eat some food, enjoy some drinks, and have a great time!
