    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

      2 weeks 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

      2 weeks ago

      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.

      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.

      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

      2 weeks 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

    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

    2 weeks 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

      Because it used to be a 2 day wait

    • saxdude1

      2 weeks 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 week 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.

    If we have to wait a week then what's the point of just not watching it on YouTube (unless they pushed that back further) it runs faster and u won't make as much money off the ads due to it being more convenient to just goto YouTube ( I'm just trying to look at this from a business standpoint I want you guys to be successful I don't see that many more people buying first to compensate for the ad rev that you'll get from YouTube instead of from here although I also don't see the statistics so maybe this will work out

    • yakovich

      Yeah, the only reason to go on this website is that it comes before YouTube which was Roosterteeth's best decision. But now people are just gonna come to YouTube. Plus if they make people wait a week for it to come out, somebody would've found a way to pirate it by that point so everyone would just go there to watch it first and Roosterteeth won't get any support from their video. Whereas if they just stuck to their one day later thing, it would be very difficult to pirate before then so everyone would watch it on the Roosterteeth website.

    Interesting start to the new season. I'm really looking forward to this one. As for the debate about the release schedule, I don't really see the big deal to wait a few extra days. It may even be related to the notable decrease in ad-revenues businesses are seeing on YouTube as a result of the advertiser debacle. Either way, just try to be nice to each other while you discuss. There shouldn't be such a violent schism between paying and non-paying members - we're all here to enjoy this content. RT has been so successful because of a really solid and positive community so let's try to keep that going regardless of minor inconveniences.

    okay so I lot of first users are saying don't complain about waiting a week, but you see(now take this in this is pretty complicated) WE DO NOT WANT TO WAIT A WEEK! Now I understand that chances are, is that complaining probably won't change the fact that we have to wait, but the chances of rooster teeth rectifying this error in judgement goes to zero if we do nothing so I'm going to the comments to complain.
