> To answer your question OP:
> What happened to Red Vs Blue? Season 14 is an attempt to stall the writing of the show because after Monty Oum passed away, the lead animator to Red vs Blue and the worlds best corigrapher in the business, they sort of wound up stranded without any means to tell their story any further. Recently there has been a rumor that the animation team at RoosterTeeth hasnt been able to find a replacement and are struggling to meet the criteria they have set up, and started to canibilaze all the unused animations Monty hasn’t gotten around to using since he started recording stuff YEARS AGO.
> Recently it it was found out that at the end of season 12 for red vs blue and the end of season 2 for RWBY Monty had already made the basic animations and recording for season 13 and 3, they just had not been perfected yet.
> Season 14 of red vs blue called in for help by asking fans to come in and direct episodes. Many people believe this is so they can buy some time to find a decent animation lead before they run out of material that Monty had stored away.
> Lastly I see a few People in hear saying they didn’t like anything after season 10, well I dont know what you guys are smoking but season 11-13 has had the best story, characters, and development So far. Sorry you don’t like it, and the 3-D animations make the show feel way more action packed.
You need to check yourself before you wreck yourself.
It was announced months before the start of Season 14 that it would be an anthology of short stories in different mediums with outside talent directing the episodes. This has nothing to do with the open letter discussing Monty, the contents of which have never been directly addressed by a member of the company. As someone else has stated in this thread, Monty was exclusively dedicated to working on RWBY in recent years, so his departure had nothing to do with the turn of the series. Their animation team has risen to the challenge of that void in the company as evidenced by their “Summer of Animation” which has featured two new shows, RWBY Chibi and Camp Camp.
This season’s anthology format was necessitated by Miles, the lead writer for RVB since Burnie decided to focus elsewhere in the company after season 10, being worn thin by writing the Chorus arc. They’ve been able to fill in some plot holes along the way and give other content creators a chance to give their spin on the RVB universe, and while some episodes have been better than others, I for one, have thoroughly enjoyed sightseeing on this detour.
The only part of your post that I even remotely agree with is your opinion on the Chorus arc in Seasons 11-13. They needed to rebound from the incredible emotional drain and resource hog that was Season 10, and they did that with aplomb.
For those complaining about animation, did you miss the return to CE machinima for the origin of the Blood Gulch crew in the direct aftermath of the downfall of Freelancer? Did you miss the live action trailer for The #1 Movie in the Galaxy: 3 that featured members of the 405th directed by Freddie Wong of Rocket Jump? I know my favorite episode so far has been the live action Mega Bloks episode The Brick Gulch Chronicles. The animation style for the past two episodes, Club and Call, that have started to tell the origin story for Felix and Locus, has been utterly incredible. I never thought I’d see anything like that come out of RT animation, and I’m really glad they got a chance to show off that incredible talent.
I get that there’s a ton of confusion out there right now, and this season hasn’t been well-received by and large, but let’s all try to give RT the benefit of the doubt and keep the misinformation to a minimum, shall we?
