We’re back! For a third year in a row, Rooster Teeth will be hosting the RT Community Stream. We’re already gearing up with plans and shenanigans and ways that we can do mental (and some physical) harm to our co-workers in the name of, "For the Kids."
The RT Community Stream will be happening on November 3 to November 4, 8 a.m. to 8 a.m. CST - a full 25 hours of bouncing around every hour to community groups all over the world. And yes, that's 25 hours, so 25 groups because Daylight Savings Time is happening again.
We’ve done this the last two years, but some of you may be asking, WHAT IS THE EXTRA LIFE RT COMMUNITY STREAM? Let me tell you.
The RT Community Stream is a 25-hour livestream where we, Rooster Teeth, will host a specific Community Group or Individual in hour long blocks. Jack, Caiti, myself and maybe some other randos will be hosting the stream at the top of every hour; covering Extra Life details, showing off the exclusive merchandise, and telling you about the new group we’re about to throw it to. The RT Community Stream is schedule on the same day as Extra Life’s massive GAME DAY. Where Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Game Day is the day of play (the whole 25 hours of it) where gamers around the world marathon their favorite table top, PC and consoles games to raise money for sick and injured kids. It’s just like a walk-a-thon, only you’re participating alongside gamers who, just like you, are playing or streaming #forthekids!
In the past we’ve been able to pull in groups located all over the US, Canada, the United Kingdom and more. There have been skits, gameplay, truly horrific stretch goals, and artistic streams - anything is game when it comes to raising money For the Kids.
So, here’s the deal: we're looking for some amazing RT Community Extra Life teams that are looking to participate in our official RT Community Stream.
If you're interested, please fill out the following form! Make sure to get with your fellow group members so there's no duplicates between y'all.
For those of you who participated last year, you'll have to fill out the form again. You have until September 28, 2018 to submit.
Now here's the cool part. By joining our Rooster Teeth Super Team on Extra Life, every dollar that you, or people in your sub team donate goes towards the total that Rooster Teeth is attempting to raise. Here is our team!
If you have issues with the Rooster Teeth Super Team, or you want to create a sub-team to include in the Rooster Teeth Super Team, drop the support guys at Extra Life an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and they'll hook you up.
So, to sum up Extra Life and the streams...
November 3 is the 25-hour RT Community Stream
November 10 is the INSANE 24-hour Rooster Teeth Extra Life Stream.

P.S. - A lot of people were asking about tech minimums and recommendations for streaming. HERE'S THAT INFO FOR YOU.
