    Rooster Teeth's content, and the people who produce it, were a shining beacon of hope and happiness for me in a fairly shitty year that was 2016. I've always consumed your media (from the very first episode of RVB) but it was always usually at a chaotic, sporadic pace. A couple videos a month, or one video every few months. This year, I went through a lot of rough shit, and honestly, having Rooster Teeth here for me to get into more than I had in previous years, and getting attached to everyone (especially the AH guys, if I'm being totally honest) was one thing that kept me from losing my mind. I know it's sad, because you're halfway across the country from me, and I've never met you, but your videos have kept me afloat and kept me happy. I am so glad that you guys put out the content you do. 
    I know no one will read this, but honestly it felt good to just get it out. 
    Thank you Rooster Teeth, for keeping my head above water in 2016, and I look forward to more content you guys put out in 2017. 
    Happy New Year!

    meh, always open isnt all that spectacular. Im glad barbs has gotten some spotlight but its just another RT podcast, the patch, dude soup, on the spot, and off topic thing. I have only watched a couple off topic episodes and almost every patch, on the spot, and RT podcast though.

      I was iffy on it to begin with, but as after I watched a few I love it. It's awesome seeing all the RT peeps being so... open.

      Always Open is easily my favorite podcast. It's ok if podcasts aren't your thing, but it's kinda rude to give your opinion on something if you don't like the type of medium the thing is...

      @rperkins524 i love watching a bunch of podcasts but its just as a long time fan of RT from nearly the  beginning i have seen lots of shows start and slowly fade away. I love the rt podcast even though i personally dont agree to roosterteeths political views and opinions but i still get great joy watching them talk and have fun. I loved the heck out of the patch and couldnt wait to see the topics gus, ashley, meg and ryan would talk about. On the spot caught my attention because of how new it was, i rather enjoyed the idea if an RT game show hosted by the risemonger himself. And off topic? I do owe them a huge thanks. In off topic number 7 my video was mentioned about the cloudberry kingdom all wins run. Many people rushed in and told me and i had never watched one before. After that i was amused and watched all current 7 episodes. I have now seen up to 30 of them before losing some interest. Dude soup i dont like because i dont like funhaus all that much and always open just seems like another RT podcast to me. I still respect it and its viewers, but me personally im not invested enough to watch itut maybe one day i will, also sorry for the long reply, Im terrible at making my points short...

      I love that theme song, but fuck that theme song at the same time. So freaking catchy, find it stuck in my head every other day weeks(months?) after seeing the finale.

      I'm really hoping this is an oversight, they did 2 more episodes than originally planned because it was so popular. Maybe it's just that writing season 2 is more difficult and they don't know when it'll come back? Really want more.

    You guys did an amazing job this year with your content! I am honored that I was able to turn to your videos, in good times and bad, and know that I was going to get a laugh, nod along in agreement, be amazed or just have a good time. Thanks for being who you are, for us.
    Laughter and Sunshine!

    Mine has got to be watching RWBY grow in so many ways.

    A game, Manga, visual overhaul, growing attention in Japan.

    Now all we need is for it to follow other Anime and give us an audio drama CD, live stage show, a lot of doujinshi of questionable content (actually that already gets a tick I think), a movie, beach episode OVA and a light novel.


    So basically, 2017, more RWBY please.

    My favourite part of the year is a toss up between Trump winning the election, the meltdown of the left due to said election, Trump confirming his win or the left doubling down with their meltdown due to said confirming.

    2016 has been fucken amazing!

    My favourite part of this year? RTX Sydney, actually seeing most of you in the flesh after a decade of watching you on my screen from the other side of the world was pretty fucking cool! Not to mention getting to hang out with the best fan community on the planet  barbara That and buying myself a Vive after seeing how much fun y'all have with it, best choice I ever made!

    For Adam, I thought after he said his moment was hiring Elyse, and she corrected him, I thought he was going to change it to firing her.


    For Miles I thought his moment was going to be "When I made everyone think that Qrow was going to survive the scorpion venom."


    Ah, my favorite moment was RWBY's season 4 premiere and the journey so far.

    One of my favorite 'moment' gotta be the RT Extra Life. It's the first time I was able to watch it alongside and in full and bought my first merchandise from RT. Pretty much all their videos are all favorites of mine, helping me through life and college. <3 Here's to 2017, another good year for all of us community! and a better year than 2016 as a whole...

    I think the highlights of my years, as far as RT goes, has got to be attending RTX as a VIP and having front row seats to Lets Play Live Chicago. I was just about to head home to Illinois from Texas after RTX when LPL Chicago was announced. This was the first full year being a member of this amazing community and what a great year it was to be apart of it. Heres to 2017!

    I sorta have 2 favorite moments of 2016. The first was in May when I got to visit Stage 5 with my family, cause despite the reasons I was allowed to visit in the first place, I never thought I as a fan would get to visit the Rooster Teeth offices. The second was when I got to give my thank you to the Rooster Teeth fandom at RTX. Despite how awkward I was up on stage, I still think that was one of the proudest moments of my life so far. You guys deserve to know how much you're all appreciated for the support during my and everyone else's recoveries, so I'm glad I got to thank everyone. I still can barely believe that I got to be the last 3 minutes of the RT podcast from RTX. Thank you all again.

    My favorite part of 2016 is that it was the year I discovered Rooster Teeth.


    I started watching RWBY WAAAY after it had gotten big, but after I binged it I signed up to be a First Member almost in the same month. Now I always check Rooster Teeth for Podcasts or episodes to something for a laugh. Thanks RT, you guys made the year fun!

    I think my favorite thing of 2016 is that painting on the wall behind Chris @ 1:03.  I mean, is that a giant naked Aaron toweling off in front of a double rainbow?  I may not know art, but I know what I like.


    Also lol right after that when you can hear the Aussie accent in the RTX chant.

    My absolute favorite moment was finding Rooster Teeth back in june with RWBY. After quite a long time Volume 3 made me realise i can still go full on fangirl about something. And then i found RvB, AH, RTAA and all the other stuff, and look at me now! I became a first member!  pyrrha

    Too many great things from RT this year. Just being a part of the community made it all great. 
    From the end of RWBY volume 3 to the start of Volume 4, Camp Camp, so many good podcasts, Theater Mode, the addition of Mica to AH was great in my opinion, Day 5, ELR being announced, and a phenomenal season of immersion! So many more things as well. 
    Best part of 2016: Being an RT community member.
