  • RT Store Redesign

    5 months ago


    Hi everyone,

    I’d like to introduce myself and tell you about some new and exciting changes in the RT Store. I joined the RT Store team a little over a year ago as the Senior eCommerce Manager. I focus on strategic initiatives to improve your overall shopping experience, among other fun projects. Over the last year, we’ve been identifying ways to enhance your shopping experience. Through this, we discovered that you like to shop by show/brand.

    This morning, we made some big changes to the RT Store. The new store homepage features large brand images so you can quickly jump to the collection you’re most interested in. In addition to the new homepage layout, we’ve updated the navigation to allow you to quickly navigate by product type/category. From there, you can filter by Gender, Collection, Color, Size, and more by using the toolbar on the left, or by product type by using the toolbar below the header. Additionally, we’ve improved the mobile shopping experience so you can browse the store easier and checkout faster.

    This update is the first of many. Joel (@DynamicFall), our Store Software Engineer, and I will continue to improve site functionality, imagery, and merchandising to enhance your overall shopping experience. We hope you love the new store site. Please take a look and leave us some feedback in the comments.

    I don't know if you noticed but we're back with a brand new season of OTS and this season we are all about being family-friendly and completely accessible to the entire public. In other words, we're gonna just have to get really creative for synonyms and nicknames for dicks ands farts. Gimme some prompts, my lovelies!


    • Come up with a category for the guests to list off possible answers for (i.e. Things not to say after someone says "I love you" for the first time.)
    • Category with a lot of possibilities for answers are the best.


    • Find an odd story from the recent news with an equally odd headline that we can remove a word or two from for the the guests to fill in the blank.
    • Look for headlines where a blank space would leave the story open to a lot of different interpretations. Ambiguity is key.


    • I need a simple feud you'd like to see our guests resolve in a courtroom.
    • Specifically disputes between 2 individuals where one has wronged the other in some way.
    • You can even make this personal and we'll solve your own problems while we're at it.


    • Submit the opening line to a short story that guests can complete as a team
    • Ex: One day, a small boy was walking in the woods and happened upon a magic talking rock...
    • Keep the prompt short but details will make it better

    Be good to each other this week and set your clocks for Wednesday, 5PM CT for some goofs, gaffs and guffaws. xoxo The Risemonger

  • We're making a RWBY board game!

    5 months ago


    Today is a big day here at Rooster Teeth! We just launched a crowdfunding campaign for a new board game we can’t wait to make. It’s called RWBY: Combat Ready, and it puts you and your friends inside the fiercest battles from our award-winning animated series RWBY.


    You might be wondering why we’re launching this on Kickstarter. The main reason is that we want our community to have a say in how this game takes shape. Physical board games are a new frontier for Rooster Teeth, and we need as much of your advice, input, and support as possible. Our community made our first movie better, you made our first party game better, and now we need your help to make our first board game the best game it can possibly be!

    By contributing, you’ll enable us to use higher quality materials, develop new characters, incorporate new objectives, and maybe even work in a few wish-list features. (Stretch goals, anyone?) Crowdfunding gives us the opportunity to be bolder and more innovative. It gives you the power to help us make a better game!

    What’s more, the board game community on Kickstarter is huge! What better place to go to get the feedback we need? We really want this to be a game that’s equally fun to play whether you are a die-hard fan of RWBY, or someone who just loves playing a new well-designed board game with your friends and family.

    To make sure we’re getting it right, we’ve partnered with the experts at Arcane Wonders. With their history of making great board game experiences, and our love of gaming and all things RWBY, we can’t wait to show you how amazing this game is going to be! But to really have it all come together, we need your support. Thanks for being the best community on earth. We look forward to making this new vision a reality with all of you!

    revelsrouser Product / Design

    Greetings Y’all!

    Allow me to make a long overdue introduction. Earlier this year I joined the Rooster Teeth team as Product Designer UX/UI. Basically, it’s been my job to completely redesign our desktop, mobile, and 10 foot experiences. It’s a tall order, but it’s also a dream job to design cool stuff for such a rad and passionate fanbase.

    I’m very excited to announce that a brand new Rooster Teeth web experience is less than one month away, and we need your help to make it great! This October we will be sending out a limited number of invites to test our beta release. Just click this link to sign up, and check out a sneak preview of the new site. We’ll reserve your place in line and email you when a spot opens up.

    I’ll be checking in with you all on a regular basis to gather your feedback. Stay tuned for updates!

  • Sticking the Landing -- Day 5 Season 2 Finale Today!

    5 months ago



    Hey guys,

    I legitimately can't believe we're here -- LESS THAN THREE HOURS from the season finale of Day 5. As Aaron mentioned a few days ago, it's been over a year since we started laying the foundation for Jake and co's journey. 

    And we've basically spent that entire time waiting for you to get to this point. So... welcome.

    One of the crucial things for us this season was sticking the landing. It's one of our few regrets of season one, to be honest. We spent quite a bit of time debating how many answers to give back then, and ultimately erred on the side of mystery. In retrospect, a few more answers were probably due to go out on a satisfying note. Season one was also very front-loaded with the spectacle and scope (not uncommon for a pilot), and focused mostly on introducing you to the world.


    Season two is different. We wanted to tell a very focused story with a very definitive conclusion. If you've seen episode seven, you know there are big revelations that took an entire season to build to... and there's even more to come in the finale. You'll get some answers, but not all (it's not the SERIES finale, after all). There will be tension and bloodshed and maybe a few tears. And hopefully you'll feel the love for craft that hundreds of cast and crew put in to take you on this journey.


    Let me know how we did after. See you on the other side.


  • Let's Play Family Reunion Is Coming!

    5 months ago


    The Let’s Play Family Reunion is right around the corner, which means that now is a great time to sign up for a FREE 30-day trial if you aren’t already a FIRST member.

    From September 24-25, some of your favorite Let’s Play family members will be stuck in a house together for a weekend of streaming, podcasts, and shenanigans. That’s Achievement Hunter, Funhaus, Cow Chop, Sugar Pine 7, Kinda Funny, and Criken all under one roof. It will be chaos, and FIRST members get to watch it go down live on the Rooster Teeth site.

    Speaking of chaos, we’re doing a Chaos Drive to help raise the stakes for the Let’s Play Family Reunion. Sign up for a FIRST membership before September 24 to help unlock these additional perks:


    Sign up for a free 30-day trial today and make it happen.

    Ok, I’ll be honest with you. I did not write that. Marketing has been up my ass all month to write a journal about the Reunion thing, and apparently they just gave up on me, which is fine. Totally fine. Not doing stuff people expect of me is like having a mini orgasm to me.

    It probably IS a good idea to sign up though. Also, Becca sure makes me sound smart, and hey! being smart is better than not being smart, or so I’m told. So if you also want to be smart, sign up for FIRST or whatever. According to my (not my) words above, it’s a great deal or some shit. Whatever, I don’t care…

    Maybe I care a little.

  • Day 5 Season Finale This Sunday

    5 months ago


    It was almost a year ago today when I first felt “the fizz” in the Day 5 writer’s room. All of the follicles on my extremely hairy neck started to raise and I couldn’t help but grin at my less attractive writing partners, @JoshtheFlanagan and @Chris. We had just woven together the main story beats of the incredible Season 2 finale you’ll see this Sunday at 4pm CST.

    I’ll be honest, I don’t get impressed by much. If I found a thousand dollars in my jeans while on a third date with Gal Gadot celebrating the disarmament of Kim Jung Un using only gummy bears and a pack of Marlboros, I might say “Neat.” But Day 5 is impressive. This finale is impressive. And we can’t wait for you to see it.

    Without hesitation, this is the best thing I’ve ever worked on. The level of talent in front of and behind the camera is absurd. And the leadership of @matt and @burnie, as well as the risk they take making something so different and large in scale, is inspiring.

    Plus you’ll see some sex.

    So watch it. Support Rooster Teeth. Support Creative Risks. Support heated love-making. And remember you can sign up for a free 30-day trial now and watch the whole damn series before the finale.

    Don’t fall asleep,

  • My 6 Month HRT Anniversary & Dealing With Negative Thoughts/Self Hate

    6 months ago


    Last week I posted that I hit my 6 Month HRT anniversary!  This was also the first time I told anyone, aside from my partner and some close friends, that I had even been on HRT.

    Amidst the last 6 months I've been thinking a lot about life, who I am, who I was, and my fight with constant depression.  Some of this I've already posted on twitter, but I'm taking some time to add a bit more to it, while also integrating something else I recently talked about too.

    I spend a good deal of time feeling down on myself about things I can't change.  I feel most people do that too. I worry so much that sometimes it can be incredibly debilitating and stop me from being able to function properly.

    Thinking so much about something we did/didn't do, something we said/didn't say...I spend a lot of time being down on myself with regret and thinking about any hurt I may have caused, to others, to myself, etc.  Of course, knowing what I know now, there are so many things I'd do differently. 

    Its an assumption but I feel like most people have these thoughts. Thinking the hurt they feel now is because of who they were before or what they did long ago.  It can become a crippling depression and make things so much worse.

    Now, I think what is most important is what you do now, what you learned, and doing your best to be a better person.  Living life thinking "I wish I didn't say/do that" or "I wish I did say/do this" does more harm than good.   

    If you are being a better person now, that's what matters most.  We all wish we could have been better, so let's all be better now.

    I feel it's important for me to say I'm sorry for my mistakes and I forgive you for yours, the past is gone, we are who we are now and nothing less.

    With the constant negative thoughts, I look at everything I've done, been through, said, and experienced and it sometimes sends me spiraling.

    I take a look at my professional career and wonder if things will work out, and over a decade of work later I still feel I’ve made no progress and continue to struggle to find any proper “place”.

    Even day to day issues can easily be just as overwhelming as larger problems and often get me stopped in my tracks for longer than they should and the constant struggle I’ve had to deal with concerning my gender identity has been something that caused me no end of discomfort and heartbreak.

    After coming out as trans, I saw so many people who once supported me on the sidelines suddenly abandon and ridicule me. I got, and still get, daily messages of hate. Some more mild, refusing to use proper pronouns because I’m “not a real woman”. Some filled with rage saying I should “kill myself” and refusing to see me as anything other than a freak who should be “dealt with”.  Honestly, part of me feels like all those hurtful and mean messages, I deserve them for one reason or another.

    Being bullied or abused isn't restricted to one certain type of experience, and because of this, you may become someone you didn't want to be.  Acting in ways you don't agree with, taking your aggression and frustrations out in unhealthy ways, both towards others and yourself.  Words hurt just as much as physical pain, and in some cases can be even more harmful.

    Life is a struggle for everyone, sometimes it gets easier, and sometimes it seems impossible to fix. Often times my experiences have left me with life and my goals feeling more towards “impossible”, with the constant whispers to give up and stop trying ringing in my ears. And these experiences arn’t limited to my struggles towards coming out.

    Those feelings did become more prevalent ever since I came out publicly. My work, less important. My opinions, less valid. My existence, null and void. The world, and my options in life, became smaller and things and opportunities that were “available” to me became completely inaccessible.  However, I've had a constant struggle with being accepted by others, family, friends, etc, to the point of almost losing myself and who I was and who I desperately wanted to grow up to become.

    So far, 2017 has been one of the most difficult times in my life, which is saying something. But one major good thing happened.

    On March 4th, 2017, I took my first steps towards transitioning. Now I’m officially 6 months in on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), and I’m slowly feeling less at odds with myself.

    So with this major step forward, I’m going to keep trying, I’ll keep working hard, and I’ll continue to do my best to find my place. Be it professional, in day to day life, with new ventures, or as I continue my journey towards transitioning, I hope I’ll have support from all of you. 

    Because honestly, without the support of my loving partner, friends, coworkers, fans, and this community that is being slowly built around me, things easily seem impossible.

    Thank you for accepting me, thank you to everyone who has been kind to me, dealing with trauma isn't easy, and I'm happier that I've finally been able to process things that happened to me before in healthier ways.

  • Help for Hurricane Harvey Victims

    6 months ago



    In the last week, there’s been a huge outpouring of support and concern for the victims of Hurricane Harvey from the Rooster Teeth community. We’re eager to help our neighbors to the east, so we have set up a GoFundMe donation page with a $100,000 goal, with all of the money going directly to the Houston Food Bank.

    We hope this will be a good way to bring the entire RT community together to support those in need, many of whom are our own friends and family. We chose the Houston Food Bank because it is a local charity that works to provide relief not just during the disaster, but in the months after, when the media has moved on to other subjects but people in the area are still trying to get their lives back together.

    With your help, we can make a significant donation to an organization that will directly and immediately benefit those in need.

    When something messes with Texas, Texas fights back. Thank you for fighting alongside us.
