    I loved the RWBY shout out.  It makes me hope that, in the future, if the RvB team does another anthology season, we could see a (non-canon, of course), crossover.  That would be fun.

      If you are referring to the end of the commercial skipping the current episode you are attempting to watch, either click the little 'x' by the "Up next in _ Seconds " pop-up or you can turn off the "Binge Mode" button under the video description.

    okay it isn't them. They are using actual tactics without Carolina and Washington. And Church died again. I don't think they brought him or his armor back yet

    I have a wonder:  Since "Grumpy McBossypants" gave her 10 days do you think Season 15 will take place in just 10 in-universe days?

    I don't see the big deal about the first members or whatever. It honestly is only a hassle for the first episode. It came out, we had to wait a week. Now they wait a week for the next episode (for them) just like us. No matter what you still have to wait a week. In a week ill be excited for episode 2, we don't really have to wait longer between episodes if you think about it.

    A side note to those complaining about the wait, there is this new thing called patience and not being a self entitled prick, you might want to give it a try.

    so first things first before i begin over analyzing everything awesome but where the shit is tuckers new suit...


    which brings me to this. If the team on the roof consists of church (his trademark weapon is the sniper and its his armour colour), tucker, caboose, sarge, donut and lopez where in the hell are grif, simmons and doc as well as carolina and wash. and my reasoning for who i believe is on the roof although clearly probably imposters. church like i said his armour and his sniper, tucker because armour, caboose armour and explosives, sarge(now i considered simmons but the pulse rifle resembles a shot gun and simmons wouldnt blow someones head off like that) armour and weapon similarity, donut its clearly lightish red and lopez because what other brown spanish robot is there in RvB. also does this mean if this is church that he gets a facial identity.

    the good thing about being in halo 5 is that we don't have to see the awkward "raising the gun when walking" thing. and the forge gives them ultimate map control. as we saw at the end there. maybe these one week waits won't be so bad.

    To the whiny mcgreedypants who have to complain that they had to wait a week and are upset about it. Get a life. I not only had to wait the week, I had to wait an extra 4 hours because I had responsibilities. Gasp. but I survived. Apparently you did too cause you're reading this. It's am 8 minute video, not the answers to life. (that's 42) 


    To those who watched the video, I'm thinking the reds and blues seemed off. It appeared to be Tucker, Simmons, Lopez, Donut, Caboose, and was that Church? Maybe one was Wash. But it's not what you'd expect as a team from them. Nor were they acting like themselves. There was no bickering. Everything was done with efficient precision. The only thing that was red and blue like was the frog timer. I wonder if either they're being framed or the AI fragments Church/Epsilon became took over their new hosts.

    Oooh, so Chorus has apparently joined the Innies?

    And someone is framing the Blood Gulch Crew for crimes?
    99% chance it's Charon trying to get the UNSC to invade Chorus and free up the planet to allow another of Hargrove's puppet corporations to loot the alien tech.
    Nice job so far Rooster Teeth.


    Also, still waiting on Junior and his Splinter Faction to show up. He's a New Messiah under the Arbiter (probably), he's gotta show up sometime after that cameo.

    Why is it that everyone hates the first membership thing. Im not a first member but I can wait an extra couple days to watch the show. RT needs money to make there stuff. First members are not little spoiled babies like everyone says the are.Im just confused by the stupidity.

    oh my gosh!! this was so, words can't really describe


    this episode made me shake a little in excitement, I can't wait to see episode 2! 


    still feel there is some big secret that is happening with the reds and blues, can't wait to find out even if it might not be what I thought it could be like with the A.I. or like the other stuff that I thought before..........that reminds me, her being called bunny makes me think of the baby bunnies that are going to be born over at my uncle's.


    THIS WAS SO AWESOME! 


    I could just give a kiss to those who help make this! 


    too bad I don't have any of the chocolate kisses on me, I could go for them right now


    they are really good.


    I'm going to go grab something to eat,


    again this was so freaking awesome, and I really need to get a lot of chocolate kisses some time because after talking about them now I really really REALLY want some.

    I know you guys want to make being a First Member worth our while, but an entire week? That is kind of ridiculous. Does that mean you upload to YouTube every two weeks? I would understand once again, if you delayed the YouTube upload by 2 weeks with this sudden change. But whats the point of becoming a regular member if we have the same viewing rights as Non-Members? It was perfect when it was first implemented.

    • Mathias-Chrome

      1 month ago

      no. its available for free members the same day as youtube. which completely shatters the point of being a free member now. they should have given it either on a friday of the same week or half of the week later. that way the divide seems justified.

    For those of u confused on the wait a week outrage i will explain. Those were non first waited 2 days and felt like it was fair. Now the first have all the say and made us waait a week cuz they are spoiled babies. I myself am a former first and gunna be one again. Also a week increases the chance for spoilers to popup cuz ppl are jerks.

    • SpartaLazor

      Dude. That's wrong on a couple of levels. The First members don't have all the say, they didn't make the week wait - they didn't even know about it until RT officially announced it. And they're not 'spoiled babies'. A lot of First members are upset over this as well because the first time RT tried it, it was met with tremendous backlash. Now here they are doing it again except they kinda just snuck it in without saying anything.

    So, now there's no point in being a member. Well, I'm done with you guys. I'm gonna switch over to watching your shows through less than legitimate means, so as to deny you that almighty dollar you've prioritized over your fans. Please, continue to fuck up the gifts Monty left you.

      Chill out dude, I know I'd doesn't mean much now that I'm a first member. I only got my first membership a couple of days ago and  I was just as pissed as the next guy about the scheduling changes. But there were points to be made by the first members. Rooster teeth is a company not a charity, they need that "all mighty dollar" so they can keep providing for the fans. 

    • kingd353

      i feel the need to point out them being a company doesn't excuse every decision they make as a company just as much as they want to make money they also have the job to keep their customers happy. them being a company doesn't excuse screwing over fans or make teh fans right to complain and be unhappy any less valid

  • daltonater

    Let me start this by saying that I definitely am annoyed that despite having an account, I still have to wait the full week here.


    However, it is worth noting that I also think a certain amount of this frustration can be traced back to RWBY season four, where the wait was only 2 days if you had a non first account, and a week for everyone else.

    • kingd353

      1 month ago

      2 days? i only recall it being 1.... also it has nothing to do with rwby specifically it was always a 1 to 2 day wait for ever show (or atleast rwby and rvb

    • daltonater

      Either way, its the same idea. People are pissed because of the change, rather then the fact that the delay exists.

    While I completely understand the time-change, I really hope that this switch to sponsor-preferred content means something big is coming. 

    If it's simply to show appreciation to sponsors, great. But who knows? Maybe we're getting another great show. 

  • AgentBeasty

    1 month ago

    why are all the non-first memeber complaing about the wait a week thing? I mean the whole point of FIRST is to get early access and stuff so if they release like a day or two later it feels like they're paying for nothing. Plus thins is basically like when one episode came out on YouTube the next one was already out on the RT website

    • Dapang420

      We're annoyed because some of us were members before they ever started asking for money, and now it feels like we've been thrown away for a dollar.

      Because it used to be a 2 day wait

    • saxdude1

      1 month ago

      It's because the wait used to only be a few hours, then it became a day for non-first members and another day for everyone else. RvB season 14 and RWBY season 4 became a day for non-first members and a week for everyone else. Now everyone besides non-first have to wait a week. It is more people feel like they are being forced to become first members.

    • Alisa1296

      1 month ago

      For me if the episode comes out the same day here and on youtube it makes more sense to watch on youtube simply because youtube loads faster on my computer as such there doesn't seem to be any point in being a non-first member at all. This makes it more difficult to do things like turning off ad-blocker for roosterteeth content and accessing the store to buy something if I have extra money. While none of this is necessary it becomes annoying if you actually want to support roosterteeth without paying a subscription.

    I don't get the outrage. If you don't pay you still get to see the whole show. Just seeing it a week later then a few others doesn't mean that much. I don't pay but the way I see it its no different then if they waited another week before releasing anyways. the only difference is that we know its there. Besides the way I watch I miss like 3 weeks and then watch all that I've missed in one sitting so its not that bad.
