    • Rooster Teeth & You: What keeps RT alive?

      1 day ago

      Darkskills Gorlin Goltz

      Today, Burnie's latest vlog was released on youtube. For those who don't have the time to watch it, he and Matt discussed how it is that Rooster Teeth makes money to produce shows, run events, etc. and that essentially broke down like this...

      #1 Advertising

      All the commercials you see before the videos on this site or youtube generate a relatively good chunk of money for the company. They also displayed an excerpt from Parade magazine featuring Camp Camp as an example of this. 

      #2 Subscriptions, also know as FIRST Membership

      As it's been a huge discussion point since the time restriction on the latest season of RvB, this still makes sense. The community largely supports the company. 

      #3 Licenses & Royalties 

      For those who don't know what this is, a good example would be the version of RWBY that was done in Japan, with the Japanese voice actors. The company that did that paid Rooster Teeth in order to legally create it. 

      #4 Events... RTX, Let's Play Live, and secret future events

      While some of the money from ticket sales goes to the vendors and overall funding for events, Rooster Teeth still makes money from these amazing events. 

      #5 Merchandise... Shirts, Music, DvD's 

      Essentially, digital or physical purchases made from the RT store, including Double-Gold Subscription boxes. 

      "So what's the best way for someone with extra income to support RT?"

      Coming straight from Burnie and Matt, the biggest way to help the company is with direct contact. This means buying products directly from the RT store, watching videos on the site instead of Youtube, or simply just being a subscriber. 

      The point of the vlog was basically to say that, despite the Youtube-based

      "Ad-pocalypse," Rooster Teeth as a company is far more secure financially then other companies, and it is thanks to subscribers and the community that they don't have to constantly adapt and change things to survive.

      Interested in playing games with other sponsors on your preferred console? Well then, you've come to the right place! 

      If this actually takes off, maybe people can post their gamertags, steam names, or any equivalent way of connecting with other members of the community!

    • Sponsorship, Day 1

      So I made a change today, and started my free month trial of sponsorship. 

      Hopefully this is the right move, but I don't really see a downside to it. 

      This company has entertained me from the first time I saw an episode of Red vs Blue in middle school, and I have never regretted being a member of their fanbase. While I have spent some of money on shirts and other merchandise, it never really felt like I was giving much back to them.

      Originally, I was against the changes to the time restrictions on shows, and was quite vocal in the comment section of the first episode of season 15. After thinking about it for a while, I had a huge change of heart. I decided that this company strongly relies on sponsorship in order to create the majority of shows and content that we are then able to enjoy. 

      I look forward to helping to support RT in the future, and hope that those non-sponsors who are on the fence will see things my way eventually. 


    • Where are the sponsors?

      So I'm still kind of new here, but I noticed that there aren't many active sponsors in the forums. 

      Even in the exclusive ones, there are only a couple threads that actually get replies. 

      Do people just not visit anymore? Or is there somewhere else sponsors go?

      So does anybody in this group ever meet up or communicate? I ask because I'm almost certain I'm the only RT fan in Roswell, and would love to be proven wrong about that. I know groups in the more fan-populated states do meet ups and other events, but it seems like we had enough of a fanbase here to greenlight the Lazer Team showings in ABQ... So what are we missing?

      So I have one of those old Grifball figures from a Comic-Con a few years ago... It's still in the box, so I'm gonna see if I can have the guys sign it at the next RTX.

      Been a while since I've actually been on here. Been at a military school for college, so that's been... something else. Totally psyched for the new RWBY album this month, those guys work so hard on them and the songs are always amazing. Gonna try contributing more once I'm on break from school- which will be an adventure, cause I've never done the forums here before.
