Extra Life 2014A ton has already been said about the Extra Life stream, so instead of making a lengthy journal, I'm going to list a couple bullet points and link to Jack's entry.
Stream begins Saturday, October 25th at 8am CT and ends Sunday October 26th at 8am CT I will be in and out of the stream at random times during the 24 hours You can watch the stream at twitch.tv/roosterteeth I would greatly appreciate if you'd donate to my fundraising page. I'm aiming to raise $1000! Donations to my page go to Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas and contribute to the Rooster Teeth team total.
Rules Get a person randomly assigned to you to hand out 3 to 5 challenges (number determined by recipient of challenges) of your choice. The person must have the same game as you do for the challenge, unless you ask if they are up for purchasing said game. Recipient of challenges also must not have completed said challenges. Each contestant has exactly a month to complete all the challenges. Challenges can consist of achievements, special run throughs doing a certain task, 1v1 competitions, 100% a game, etc. Every challenge that you send out, you must have completed said challenge previously. You can’t challenge someone to 100% Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare if you haven’t completed it yourself. Upon completion of a challenge, be sure to let @Noblesteed or @Newbs know about it by posting a screenshot and either private messaging us on the site, or use the hashtag #RSACL and tag us (@RoosterSpeak, @Noblest_Steed, or @Newbs28) and your challenger on Twitter, whichever is easier for you. We will be updating the monthly scoreboard on a regular basis when these completed challenges come in.
Scoring You complete a challenge, you receive a point. You fail to complete a challenge by the end of the month, you receive a negative point. You complete all challenges presented to you for the month, you receive an extra point. The person with the highest score at the end of the month, or the one to finish their challenges in the fastest amount of time, will receive a prize of their choice ($20 value) in the Rooster Teeth Store!
If you’ve enjoyed your time after the month is over, feel free to continue to play and sign up for the next month. We will be having prizes for people throughout the coming months, and at the end of June, big prizes like RvB Box Sets and posters will be handed out to the contestants with the highest overall scores!
Sign ups are located here, and the scoreboard is located here. Signups are open for the month of November, and close at 12:00 AM CDT on October 26th! If you are having issues in coming up with challenges, please feel free to check out all the previous month’s submissions. Lot’s of great...and evil challenges have been dished out.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us (Noblesteed and Newbs). We’ll be happy to help!
2014 USA Ultimate Nationals - Frisco, TXSince May Doublewide has been training, practicing, and pushing our bodies to their limits. We've endured dozens of track workouts, 9 hour practices (spread over Saturday/Sunday), multiple tournaments, and serious wear and tear on our bodies. All of this effort, energy, and time, is for one goal, winning a National Championship.
The last leg of this 5 month journey, begins tomorrow with a road trip. After work, I'll be driving to Frisco, TX, the site of USA Ultimate's National Championships where 16 of the top teams in North America will face off in a battle of skill, athleticism, and endurance. Throughout the event, each team will have to play at least 7 games in order to win the title. Each game will last anywhere from 90 to 120 minutes with every player giving it their all.
This year, Doublewide Ultimate comes into the tournament as the 8th seed, placing us in a bracket with the 12th (Pride of New York aka PoNY), 13th (Kansas City Prairie Fire), and 1st seed (San Francisco Revolver, winner of 3 of the last 4 titles). All 3 of these games will take place Thursday, followed by the start Championship bracket on Friday. Seeding for that bracket will be based on Thursday's results. Click here to see the schedule for yourself.
Thursday: 9:00am vs Kansas City Prairie Fire on Field 8 11:15am vs PoNY on Field 8 3:45pm vs San Francisco Revolver on Field 7
Friday: 9:00am vs TBD on Field TBD
The schedule from here is strictly based on results so if you care to come watch, check my twitter or Doublewide's twitter for updates. We will have a guaranteed game on Saturday but it could be any time between 9am and 9pm and we only play on Sunday if we make finals.

Extra Life Pre-Party StreamWe are under 30 minutes away from the Extra Life Pre-Party Stream! Be sure to tune in from 5-9pm CST for a great time. We'll also be giving away prizes every 30 minutes!
The purpose of this stream is to encourage people to sign up for Rooster Teeth Extra Life Team. Signing up is completely free!
This event is also prep for the upcoming 24-hour stream on October 25th where we'll be super zany in order to raise money for Children's hospitals everywhere! Rooster Teeth will be raising funds specifically for the Dell Children's Hospital of Central Texas.
Harassment and BullyingThere has been a lot of talk on this site recently regarding harassment/bullying and how it's caused some people to leave. Let me start by saying that Rooster Teeth does not tolerate harassment or bullying. If someone is harassing you, please take the following actions:
1. Do not respond to the harasser 2. Do not publicly mention the harasser or call them out 3. Take screen shots of the harassment 4. Contact a mod or admin and report the harasser. (If it's something they can't handle, it will be brought to me.) 5. If you don't hear back from the mod/admin within 48 hours, message me.
People on the internet tend to say things they shouldn't as they feel safe behind their screens. Sometimes those people will say something mean to you, or they may tell you they dislike something you made/did. While those are rude things to do, isolated negative comments are not considered bullying or harassment.
If someone messages you terrible things multiple times, leaves negative comments on all your posts, rallies others to leave negative comments, or creates multiple accounts to do any of the above, that is bullying/harassment. The difference can be a fine line, which is why each case is handled separately. It is also why you should never hesitate to contact a mod/admin if you feel someone is harassing/bullying you.
The Road to NationalsI'm currently in the car on my way to Tulsa, OK to compete in the South Central Regionals. Regionals is the start of the playoffs for Doublewide, and in order to qualify for Nationals in 3 weeks we must place in the top 2. Coming in this weekend, we are seeded second to Denver's Johnny Bravo. This has been the case every year we've been in this region, and every year we have won regionals.
Since I'm mobile, I won't be posting details, but if you want to keep up with my weekend click the link and check out Doublewide in the men's division. If you live near Tulsa, feel free to come watch. The link also has location info!
Labor Day WeekendGood news everyone, I'm flying to Seattle this weekend, which means I'll be in the area for PAX. Bad news everyone, I'm flying to Seattle for an Ultimate tournament so I won't be at PAX. There is a good chance I'll be around the convention center Sunday night though, so maybe we can hang out! Or if you happen to have the time, come watch me play in Burlington, WA.
Saturday: 9:00am vs Denver Johnny Bravo 1:00pm vs Seattle Sockeye 3:00pm vs Atlanta Chain Lightning
If you're interested in following the action or coming to watch, check out the tournament page. I play in the men's division for Austin Doublewide. You can also check for updates via Twitter.
