How are you doing today on this RTX Austin eve? I don't know about you, but I'm psyched for everything we have coming up this weekend. (Including the Fake AH Crew Heist Escape Room!)
But don't forget, tonight is a night for go-karting!
That's right, this will be our fourth year in a row I've hosted a charity go-karting event at K1 Speed here in Austin. It's completely free and open to everyone. You don't need a badge or wrist band or anything, just show up.
More information on K1 Speed including their location and policies are available on their website.
As far as the charity side of things, like the last few years, we will have a raffle drawing for some kickass prizes from Mondo, Razer, Astro, Ubisoft, Penny Arcade, and of course Rooster Teeth. Raffle tickets are $5 for 1 ticket, $20 for 5 tickets. You don't have to be present to win, just make sure we have your contact info on your ticket!
Proceeds from the raffle will go to our Extra-Life donation this year and K1 has been gracious to give a portion of proceeds from each race tonight to Extra-Life as well! Good times!
The actual event begins around 4pm-ish, but the raffle will start closer to 6pm. Drawing of names for prizing will take place around 10pm and the event will close down close to midnight.
Whew! It's going to be awesome and I hope I get to see a ton of you out there tonight burnin' rubber and raising money for charity.

I'm pretty psyched to announce a new partnership with Ubisoft and Rooster Teeth! Let's Play Presents will be airing over on the Ubisoft US YouTube channel (right here!) every Thursday featuring a ton of your favorites from the Let's Play family of creators. You'll see folks from all over Rooster Teeth checking out new games from Ubisoft as well as playing some classics in new and different ways. Geoff may even play some PC games!
I've been a huge fan of Ubisoft for years now and some of my earliest Achievement Hunter memories involve creating a map for Assassin's Creed 2. (Still available at http://maps.achievementhunter.com/ ) I can't express how excited I am to be working officially with the Ubisoft team. This means your favorites from Achievement Hunter will get early looks at new games, some of which aren't even announced yet! Ubisoft will be working with us as well to provide some cool new content for the Achievement Hunter and Let’s Play channels. Seriously, this is an awesome partnership.
You'll be seeing tons more over the next few weeks, so please, let us know what you think while I keep pestering my new Ubisoft friends with any information they are allowed to give me about the newest titles on their slate. MORE ASSASSIN'S CREED PLEASE.
Check this out for more details and subscribe to the Ubisoft US channel to see new videos from us every week.

I am still in awe of what happened last weekend. We asked you guys to come out strong, and you punched a freaking hole through the moon. It was insanity. I've got two things to show you guys, first up is an awesome graphic to see exactly how far we made it this year. After that is the winners of our various prizes for Extra Life this year.
If you see your name on that list, congratulations. You had a TON of folks going for the same prizes.
Someone will be emailing you from RT soon to reach out about how to get you your gear or to set up a time for you to visit the studios very soon. (Probably Monday)
Also, Josh, please don't murder Jeremy when you stay at his house. Thanks. ENJOY!!

THE RAFFLE ENDS ON WEDNESDAY AT MIDNIGHT! We've extended it until Wednesday so if you missed your chance to donate this weekend, you get a reprieve! We will announce winners on Friday!
Also, a couple of new prizes. For $50.06 you can win one of the paintings during our Bob Ross segment, and for $13.37 you can have a chance to win the physical Wheel of Destiny! Good luck!!!
Donate at http://www.roosterteeth.com/donate
Aloha folks! We are almost 12 hours away from the start of our Extra Life 2016 and I couldn't be more excited. Go ahead and bookmark http://www.roosterteeth.com/ right now in preparation. From there you'll find a link to our donation page, our store with the posters and shirt, a Twitter wall, and of course our stream!
This year, we're doing something a little different. We have some incredible raffle giveaways that our amazing team has donated. I'll link them below, but let me run through a few questions first.
For the set visits / concert tickets / RTX tickets, travel accommodations are NOT included. So if you win, you have to get yourself here.
Secondly, if you donate the incredible amount of $1,337 or MORE, you are entered ONE TIME in to every single raffle. If you donate that amount more than once, you are entered in another time.
You can donate for raffle prizes multiple times, but make sure you do it on SEPARATE DONATIONS. ie: You can donate $20.02 three times for three entries, but if you donate $60.06, you won't be counted.
Your entry is ONLY FOR THE ONE AMOUNT. If you donate $100.01, you are only entered in to that drawing, not the cheaper ones as well. The only exception is if you donate $1,337 or more.
The drawings will take place AFTER Extra Life 2016, as we have to verify the donations and make sure everything is good to go before we select winners.
EVERYONE is eligible, anywhere on the planet. Just make sure you are donating in U.S. currency to make the correct amounts. If you win a set visit, someone will contact you and work out the details!
That's it! If you have any more questions, please ask below, I'll do my best to answer. And without further ado, here are the amazing goals!
See you tomorrow!

This is it, IT'S TIME!
This Saturday, at 8am Central time, we kick off our 2016 edition of EXTRA LIFE!
I cannot wait to get this thing started. We have some spectacular ideas and we're up for a solid weekend of positive energy with our community.
First of all, you've been asking for it, so here is the 2016 Extra Life poster. It's a throwback to our original one we did a few years back!
It will be $10 and available only during that window of time. It looks beautiful up close.
Also, we'll have the Cheese Master Gus shirt available again in both Unisex and Women's cuts. It's a beaut.
We also had a lot of folks asking about the community poster after the community stream, so WE'RE BRINGING IT BACK THIS WEEKEND. So if you missed the awesome photo-mosaic poster we have available in the store as well. And since we're bringing it back, we're also giving you ANOTHER opportunity to put your face on this amazing poster. Read how here: http://roosterteeth.com/post/51284147
And now, the biggest change for Extra Life this year... we're adding in RAFFLE PRIZES throughout the stream. We have some amazing prizes we are raffling off over the 24 hour period of Extra Life and you'll have a chance to win them if you donate!
For example, you could win a chance to hang out with us and watch an episode of Off Topic be recorded LIVE!
Have you ever wanted to record dialogue for Red vs. Blue? Now is your chance.
Want to see the team who makes RWBY and get a chance to see the animation team at Rooster Teeth hard at work? THAT'S IN THERE.
Care to heckle Jon Risinger from the audience of On the Spot? YOU CAN DO THAT.
We will have a list of prizes you can win, and what you'll have to donate in order to be in the drawing before Extra Life kicks off this weekend. Basically, we'll say something like:
"TO WIN A CHANCE TO VISIT XXXX AND SEE XXXX, DONATE $50.01 FOR AN ENTRY"
See? It'll be set up where specific dollar amounts get you an entry in to a drawing. Super easy!
Oh yeah, and the WHEEL OF DESTINY will make a return, and anyone who donates $1,337 or more will automatically get a chance at every single prize. It's going to be a doozy this year, we're working on a paintball firing range right now and Michael and Gavin are hunting for ONE CHIP CHALLENGE CHIPS.
After a long week we are excited to have a weekend full of positivity and raise a ton of money for kids all over the country. More information is coming soon! WOO HOO!

See you this weekend!

Sorry for the delay, but here are the details about getting your pretty face on to our Extra Life 2016 Community Poster!
For those new to this, here's the tl;dr --
Rooster Teeth is having our first every Community Game Day on November 5th for Extra Life, and then on November 12th, you'll get the big huge Rooster Teeth Game Day stream you've known and loved for years.
In addition to our poster we normally sell for charity, we're also selling a brand new COMMUNITY POSTER (why you're here) as well as a Extra Life shirt. The Community Poster will only be available from 8am CST on November 5th until 8am CST on November 6th. The new RT Extra Life poster will be available from 8am CST on November 12th, until 8am CST November 13th. The shirt will be available both weekends from 8 until 8 as well.
Here's how you can be a part of this photo-mosaic poster for our community side of things.
It's really pretty simple.
A.) Pick a clear photo of your pretty face (single person per photo please), the more of your face in the frame, the better.
B.) Name the file USERNAME-EXTRALIFE2016 with whatever file extension it is (.jpg, .png...etc) For example, I'd name my file JACK-EXTRALIFE2016.JPG -- It's very important that you include those in the filename, otherwise it won't get picked up on our servers.
C.) Take that photo and upload it to your image gallery! (Click on the images tab in your profile page and put it there! Hooray!) Feel free to tag it with ExtraLife2016 as well so other people can see your pretty face.
D.) That's it! We'll compile all the photos and have a snazzy poster for you guys very soon!
Okay, tl;dr one more time -- community poster, upload a photo of your face with the filename USER-EXTRALIFE2016 to your image gallery to be a part of it.
Have your photos up as soon as possible in order to make the cut!
We love you guys! I can't wait for November 5th, our community teams look great and we'll have more info soon for you.

We've got some exciting news for Extra Life this year. As stated on Off Topic last week, we'll be having the big Rooster Teeth Extra-Life stream on Saturday, November 12th.
This leaves November 5th to our amazing community! We've got 25 hours (thanks daylight savings) to fill with our incredible community teams running Extra Life events. Here's the deal, we are looking for some awesome Rooster Teeth Community Extra Life teams that are streaming on November 5th to participate in the official RT Community Extra Life stream!
If you are interested, please fill out the following form (get with your fellow group members as to not overlap with each other) and we'll get back to you to see how you can help us have the most badass community stream ever! https://www.cognitoforms.com/RoosterTeeth/CommunityExtraLifeStream
Now here's the cool part. Extra Life has created a new "Super Team" for Rooster Teeth where a team of folks can join under the Rooster Teeth umbrella. IE: I could join RT New York, who is under the Rooster Teeth Super Team, so that every donation counts towards the big RT overall total! You can join here: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1272
If you have issues with the Super Team, or you want to create a sub-team to include in the Super Team, drop the support guys at Extra Life an email at support AT extra-life.org and they'll hook you up.
We're also working on an Extra Life Community poster that will only be available that November 5th weekend (AND you'll be able to buy the RT Extra Life poster that weekend too). More details on those will come very soon, I promise.
So, to summarize, November 5th is the Extra Life Community Stream, November 12th will be the insanely badass Rooster Teeth Extra Life stream with all of your favorites. If you have questions, go ahead and ask below, I'll do my best to answer!

Hey guys! How’re you doing this fine day?

I promise I’ll get to that and express my thoughts on everything, but right now I want to tell you about something pretty sweet we are doing next weekend.
Next Saturday (July 23rd), from 10am Central until 6pm Central, we’ll be streaming with the charity organization Stack-Up! You can find more info on them athttp://www.stack-up.org We’ll be participating in their Call to Arms as we play video games throughout Saturday, and of course, we’ll have a brand new poster that you can purchase with proceeds going towards the charity!
Who might you find playing on Saturday? That’s a great question! You’ll see some of your favorites from Achievement Hunter, Screw Attack, Rooster Teeth, and Funhaus.
So, come and join us while we make our Call to Arms and raise some money for soldiers who are looking for some distraction while out there serving their country. Use this link to check out our team - http://bit.ly/RoosterTeeth16

Hi Jack! I'm going to vegas for my 30th with 13 friends on the 19th & was going to play the craps tables. What kind of betting style would you recommend? Ive learnt the game & understand the bets. Thx
| Asked by: SAAB2486 1 year ago
Keep it simple. I typically bet the PASS line (with ODDS, always always ALWAYS take ODDS) and then buy the 6 and 8 for $12 each. If either of them hit twice, on the third time I press it up to $24, if they hit twice more, press to $48...etc. Best of luck!
