Hey I want to start by saying I still like Rooster Teeth and their content is still some of the best narrative driven entertainment out now.
I've been a Sponsor for a while. I saw Lazer Team at a theatre and paid for my bud. I showed Day 5 to my Dad who loves it. I found RvB on Gamespot pre-YouTube. I've watched and rewatched the RT podcast many times and love RWBY.
I'm Australian and the following issues do not occur on other sites like YouTube or Netflix.
This pertains to physical server locations and specifications to all the uninformed responses incoming. (I've defended this point before here to people who don't understand ping or megabyte vs megabit.
I intend to re-subscribe once things get better so here's my problem with the service:
It is rare I can watch the podcast live.
No Audio only stream, making listening in the car costly to my data plan.
I can't watch new videos for at least a week when traffic slows down, including sponsor only series, those speed up in a few days.
I also as a viewer have a long memory since I re-listen to the podcast, I know what I like about it. I find it stressful to hear about Trump on a entertainment source that has been safe from all that.
Bear in mind I watch the Joe Rogan Podcast, the difference in Trump mention/discussion is substantial.
In general the RT Podcast is getting very political almost every episode and even on many points I agree on I bored of it. I hear the same 'Trump just trumped allover himself again" everyday I walk outside for work already.
I like the hilarious stand-up comic style rants, the funny internet stories (like the guy who burned his house down with his pile of 'tissues'. And Joel raving about Gold. I like the new faces, and guest segments and hilarious pranks though don't get me wrong. Burnie it's only a matter of time.
I got the sponsorship to have early access, see exclusive series and watch the podcast live.
I feel like I can hardly use any of them. I'm cancelling once I see Day 5. But it's looking like I'm buying series after that.
Once/If the issues are somehow resolved I'll re-sub, but I've been upset by this for a while now.
Still going to RTX Sydney 2018 for the 3rd year in a row! When are you guys gonna release that wicked ACDC Lazer Team trailer?
