    Rooster Teeth has laid off 13% of its staff today, and CEO Matt Hullum announced that more changes were on the way. So what's going on here? This, after some very public backlash from fans regarding working conditions and sudden subscription rate hikes. Is the troubled animation studio being absorbed into Ellation and/or Crunchyroll? Is this part of WarnerMedia's bigger plans for HBO Max?

RT has been dead since it went corporate. I miss when they did good shit like Immersion or the RT shorts that were actually funny. Now its just RWBY (shit since Monty passed), shitty talk shows like the one Barb hosts and podcasts. The only good thing RT did in the past 5 years was acquiring Funhaus and CowChop (seriously, watch these channels).

Rights or wrongs aside, why does it seem like you’re taking joy in this? I mean, 50ish people lost their jobs and that sucks. Whether you are a fan or not, please just show some respect for those that lost their job and for the organization itself because even if they have made mistakes it is still difficult for them. I’m sure this wasn’t a desired set of events to go through. So, to finalize, you guys were mostly respectful but I felt that there were times you weren’t was as well. With that said, I am a fan and I am obviously biased towards supporting Rooster Teeth so please take this comment with a grain of salt. Even with that said, I know I’ll be roasted and oh well, what will come will come either way. I wish the best for those that no longer have a job and for Rooster Teeth as well.

The 3 high level Rooster Teeth employees who left Rooster Teeth left for non-scandalous or dramatic reasons. They didn’t leave because of the layoffs but because they had various other circumstances that would’ve compelled them to leave Rooster Teeth even if there was no layoffs. As Bruce Greene said in his leaving letter, he had been planning to want to start his own business/brand even before he joined Rooster Teeth. Funhaus even put out two videos with him to say goodbye and everything. In August 2019, Bruce announced his month long sabbatical, which turned out to be time given by Rooster Teeth, in order to ponder over his eventual resignation from Funhaus and Rooster Teeth. On September 3, 2019, Bruce announced that he was leaving Funhaus and Rooster Teeth as a whole, wanting to work on creating his own brand and independent business. There’s no bad blood or drama or “sinking ship” behind Bruce wanting to leave to do his own thing. It’s clearly something that he’s been thinking about for a long time and it’s something that Rooster Teeth and Funhais have given him a lot of time and support for. In regards to Max Kruemcke, a few months ago he had announced that he and his husband had bought a ranch. Him leaving RT to help his husband out more at the ranch isn’t him “stepping down” in terms of jobs. I can tell you from personal family experience that maintaining a ranch is not an easy thing, so I can totally get Max wanting to put more time in helping his husband with managing the ranch. Besides, there are plenty of cases where people have changed their careers for competent different ones. I for one am happy for Max and wish him the best. And as for Ashley Burns nee Jenkins, she’s married to Rooster Teeth’s CCO Burnie Burns. And the reason why she’s leaving Rooster Teeth is for the most happiest and joyful of reasons. Literally less than a week before she announced her departure from Rooster Teeth, Ashley gave birth to her and Burnie’s child. https://mobile.twitter.com/ashleyburns/status/1166848169315065856 Obviously she’s going to leave work to take care of her newly born child. It’s really a no-brainer. Wishing her and her newborn son the best. And just because these 3 high level RT personalities are leaving doesn’t mean they can’t pop up on some RT videos eventually. It’s happened plenty before in the past. Kara Eberle and Arryn Zech are the VAs for two of the 4 main characters of RWBY and they left Rooster Teeth back in 2015. Kara officially announced her departure from Rooster Teeth on April 19, 2015 in order to further pursue her career and work as the Executive Assistant at Powerhouse Animations Studios. She will continue her voice role in RWBY and may appear later on in future productions. She returned to the studios for the 17th and 44th episodes of Always Open with her RWBY co-stars. In August 2015, Arryn announced that she would be leaving Rooster Teeth and moving to Los Angeles to pursue acting at the end of September in her journal. However, she still does voice work for Rooster Teeth (as Doctor Grey and Blake Belladonna), and she remains good friends with the Rooster Teeth staff (particularly the RWBY people). She has been a guest on Always Open thrice, in two of those along with her RWBY costars. And if you’ve seen them with their RT friends and co-workers, you can see that their chemistry has never looked stronger. And they’re both obviously still voicing the main characters of RWBY. So yeah, the 3 aforementioned high ranking RT personalities that recently left still have a chance to appear in RT content occasionally and they left RT with no bad blood or scandal or “sinking ship” syndrome but with all the love. ————————- The layoffs are across the board, not solely in animation.  Plus, they’re coming on the heels of a period of rapid expansion (which can lead to over-recruitment), economic downturn, several large-scale projects not producing expected results (a game, Vicious Circle, which appears to have flopped; gen:lock is not being heralded as a major success when major investment was placed in it; and they cancelled conventions in the UK and Australia for failing to grow like they hoped), youtube ad revenue being down for all creators (not just RoosterTeeth), and the fact that they miraculously survived the AT&T/Time Warner merger without layoffs when every company around them got hit with 10% layoffs at minimum (and Machinima was completely shuttered in it’s entirety). About the layoff? My best guess is because they have reduced their production. Last year they were making RWBY, Gen:Lock, RvB, Camp Camp, RWBY Chibi, Nomad of Nowhere and some video games that I just don’t know about. This year is only RWBY, RvB and Camp Camp. The rise in FIRST rates was a goddamn warning and people shat all over them for it when it’s still one of the cheapest streaming services out there. Please do not attribute to malice what can be attributed to things just being bad all over.

I used to be a huge Roosterteeth fan, like die hard. Used to be is the key phrase. My falling out of love with the brand was gradual. It started at first with RWBY, not the show itself but the people who voiced it. Everyone's wife and GF got a big voice acting job, just because of who they were banging. Red Vs Blue, the series i loved went to shit in the last 3 years. Like absolute garbage. However, it was when Meg Turney and Ryan attacked AngryJoe another Austin based content creator, I unsubscribed.

Rooster Teeth are such sell outs... Above all else, I hate the narrative they constantly push on the RT podcast, Off Topic podcast, Dude Soup podcast, etc. that somehow Rooster Teeth is the little guy or even just "different" from all the other big bad corporations RT staff have worked for in the past (think Machinima, G4...). Rooster Teeth will of course be that "special company that does no wrong" until it goes under/cans their staff...

My predictions: the gaming centered parts of rooster teeth(AH,FH) will break off and go to Twitch or Mixer. RWBY will be picked up by an anime company in Japan Microsoft buys RvB so they can use characters for their ads. Nomad of Nowhere gets picked up by cartoon network And the other shows die.
