    I honestly hope the format doesn't change much. Despite the references to Dude Soup and Try Hard, I don't think The Patch is similar at all. While I like Funhaus, Dude Soup devolves into bitching about life/critics/etc more often then not. Try Hard is sort of a mix of anecdotes about life and old school games. The Patch is clearly (at least to me) still it's own thing and not comparable to those others. You folks do a great job of covering what you're playing, games that have released recently and general tech like VR. I'd hate to see it change from that in favor of reaching some broader audience. I do agree with others that possibly having sections to help direct conversation would be useful, but the times would have to be flexible. 


    I'd also love to see gameclub return, but the logistics of picking a game one week and then managing to get the same people on for the next week to discuss it would probably prove challenging with schedules. However I think it should definitely be a built in portion of The Patch and not it's own separate show. I can't imagine doing that helps retain viewers. 


    As for the set, I really like the aesthetic of the midpoint one with the T shaped desk. Having the consoles/controllers/gizmos sitting up front was very cool. I'd always hope for a large monitor or TV somewhere to display gameplay for whatever they were talking about at the time though. Having it playing in the background without having to switch away from them is always a good thing since you can see reactions.


    I dunno. In the end, I really enjoy The Patch and with some refinements, production value and a bit longer run time it would be my most favorite one to watch of the bunch.

    Logged into my account for the first time in years to comment about this. I don't have masses of time to game any more, and as such a rambling, discursive podcast about new games, gameplay, gaming news and rumours is exactly what I want from the Patch. Recently, for example; I'm not going to play the Last Guardian, hadn't really heard of it before they mentioned it on the Patch, enjoyed hearing their opinions on it and felt like they covered it well enough that I have a feel for the game without ever playing it. 


    Occasionally, certain episodes will linger on content that I'm not too interested in (Pokemon, for example), but I can still appreciate the general chat. I find the same thing with the more popular podcasts; sometimes the topics are a bit pants or lackluster, but I hang around for the hosts and the snippets of interesting bits. 


    Host-wise, I like having Ashley and Ryan as the main hosts, then a rotating third or fourth member. I enjoy the small casts because it helps them getting massively derailed. In terms of format I enjoy the looser nature of the patch; I appreciate the honesty of the hosts admitting some weeks that there's nothing to talk about so just chatting about stuff for an hour. I enjoy when there are several topics to cover and the hosts can do each topic justice before moving on. I enjoy that the Patch doesn't feel like a comedy platform for the hosts like some of the other podcasts can, and that personal and irrelevant stories are minimal. 


    The Patch is one of the few remaining podcasts that I religiously listen to, and I'd hate to see it go or massively tarted up. I like my chilled out, comfortable and friendly Patch!

    I'm about a week late almost leaving a comment on this (I tend to download the audio versions and listen to them after the fact rather than watch the video), but the discussion at the end about the future of The Patch made me feel compelled to say something.


    If The Patch has to be retooled, my hope is that it doesn't become too structured as a result. My favourite podcasts to listen to are the RT Podcast, Off Topic, and The Patch, whereas other podcasts I've tried listening to in the past (like the long dead Screenplay) I disliked because the structure was too rigid. I much prefer the more natural and free-flowing conversations without a set 'alright, we're going to specifically talk about this right now'. I don't expect The Patch to come back identical to how it is now, otherwise there'd be no point in retooling it, but I will say that I have always viewed it and enjoy it as pretty much 'RT Podcast but with a more video game oriented focus, and once in a blue moon Achievement Hunter completely ruins it as an April Fool's joke'.


    Also, don't change the theme song. I love The Patch theme.

    As a podcast listener I had to turn it off after 15 min due to the slurping?!?!?! Holy Shit it sounded like you were holding the cup up to the mic and slurping as loud a possible.

    I really enjoy the patch because of it's focus on gaming news, as much as other podcasts talk about games very few of them look at the medium the same way the patch does. Maybe its because its run as part of "The Know" but there aren't any other podcasts from RT that do as good a job of being objective about the games their talking about. (Without someone saying "well I guess i'll be the devils advocate here!")

    I think comparisons to Dude Soup and Off Topic are a little unfair simply because they are different types of podcast, using the patch to just kick back and having a relaxing chat about games news is the best way of running the show in my opinion. But I look forward to seeing what the re-tooling brings out.

    As a Patch viewer from the start of the podcast (never missed an episode!) it'll be a real drop in the quality of my week not having The Patch to look forward to every Thursday. In terms of what needs changing, honestly for me the answer is "nothing." I'm definitely concerned that The Patch will go the way of the other shows put on "hiatus" so I wanted to get my two cents in and add to the chorus of people who want The Patch to survive. Sorry in advance for the block of text!


    I enjoy everything about The Patch as it's currently formatted, even the previous iterations Ashley mentioned. The other podcasts that cover video games are fine for their audiences, and Off Topic is tied with The Patch for my favorite podcast of all time, but I wouldn't call any of the podcasts listed as The Patch's "competition" within RT nearly as knowledgeable or analytical of video game and technology news. Ashley's perspectives on developments in technology and gaming are some of the insights I find the most valuable of the entire company, and I hope in whatever iteration comes next, her influence stays as strong as it has in previous versions of the Patch. As other comments have mentioned, having the IT perspective from Adam (and Ryan too, outside the enjoyable madness that is the AH office) fleshes tech and gaming stories out even more; I've learned more about the hardware side of things from this podcast than anywhere else. The rotating cast of The Patch is also far more evenhanded than some of the other commentator groups and as someone who primarily enjoys games for character development and story, it's nice to get gaming updates without having someone else's dislike of narrative-driven gameplay shoved down my throat as "objective fact," not to point fingers at other soup-based podcasts. 


    In terms of the structure of the show itself, I think The Patch's fluidity and adaptability to fit the topic at hand is one of its strengths and it'd be a shame to see that phased out in the next iteration of it. You guys definitely deserve a magical Marcus set so I'm pleased to hear that's on the docket, and I think the length of the episodes could stand to be dragged out to 90 minutes or 2 hours, but I also enjoy long-form podcasts more than shorter ones and I might be in the minority there. Those are the only "criticisms" I have of the podcast; everything else is perfect as is and I hope the hiatus is as short as possible!

    It's fun watching two IT guys talk about gaming and console issues. Hope Adam's in more Patch when it's rebooted. And holy hell, He's only 3 days older than me. Wish my beard looked that good.

    I as well enjoyed the Patch, and the base format of the Patch.
    a Podcast directly for "what do you know and are enjoying in gaming?"  I heard a great many things I didn't know here, and have made game and gaming purchases based on the added information that i gleamed from this podcast. (never would have given Stardew Valley a chance) I love that it was like and extended clip of the Knows informative jovial on what is available what is good and why, through people that know what they are talking about, all the other podcasts are enjoyably in their own right, as with a Grand Majority of Rooster Teeth content, there is a lot of heart and noticeable effort in each and every one, maybe not so much the PreRecs, but that isn't expected.
     But all those others have their main purpose and to me that always seemed to be: "talk about what going on in your world.." Off Topic for A.H. - DudeSoup for F.H. - R.T.Pod for the company as a whole - FanService for (Anime)tion - Even AlwaysOpen has the (IMO) base theme of community inclusion. (not a fan of Game/Screw Attack so dont know about their casts=wont comment)
    The Patch was perfect because it addressed The Knows world; Gaming, Gaming news and Enjoyable Games.

      You might want to give the Try Hard podcast from Game Attack a try. It's kind of a mix of Off Topic and The Patch. Random jokes and stupid videos they saw mixed with talk about classic video games. I've enjoyed every one so far aside from 2 weeks ago when they were hammered from doing a drunk stream beforehand.

  • GBscientist

    I don't listen to Try Hard or Dude Soup.  The only Rooster Teeth affiliated game podcast I listen to is The Patch.  What I think you should do is amalgamate the other two podcasts to be part of The Patch and rotate between groups, or just have someone from each arm of the company.  If you find that content is duplicated, prune off the latest branches and strengthen the original outlet.


    In short, I don't care about Game Attack or Funhaus and find it irritating that the gaming podcast I do like is being pre-empted for their benefit.

    I've been watching this show since the first episode, and I have to say I really enjoy the podcast with it's free style and unrestricted schedule. I don't really know how it could change to improve view counts or whatever your goal is, but I'm going to watch it regardless once it returns.

    I really love this podcast, but have noticed that it does not get the same traffic as the other RT ones(I keep up with Off Topic, Dude Soup, RT Podcast, Always Open and The Patch). I love that the patch is a laid back, but focused conversation, whereas all the others(except Always Open) are sort of general conversation podcasts that just mention gaming sometimes. So please, whatever direction you end up going in, don't make it some sort of rigid, segmented podcast where you only have x time to talk about whatever topic. If you want to gush about Pokemon Go or Overwatch for an entire hour then do it, because that's what you are enjoying at the time and we like hearing you guys talk about things you enjoy.

    I miss the game club... Also I really like the Patch the way it is, but if you guys have good ideas I'm all for it. I just like hearing you guys talk about game stuff in general. 

  • Dakicus FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    The only thing that I would change is to make the conversations a little more segmented, so you have 20 mins per game, more if it's big news but just to do that to keep away from an hour long lovefest of a certain game.


    Other than that, I think the show is great as is.

    aww I'm sad that The Patch might be going away for a while! It's one of my favorite podcast to watch! I really like having Ashley on podcasts! I'm not really around to watch the other video game guys like dude soup and all those other guys that are still kind of new to the RT family. I hope they come back with something cool and still talk about games and stuff.

    Very sad to hear about The Patch stopping it's an awesome podcast with an awesome name and awesome people. I've listened to it since the start and it has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere where I can enjoy hearing the thoughts of informed people who are passionate about gaming. Definitely worried that 'retooling' may completely destroy everything that makes The Patch such a wonderful viewing experience.

    I myself only started watching the patch recently and have been thoroughly enjoying it so the news has really saddened me as I thought I would have another show that I could watch weekly. I can understand a need for a retooling but I do hope that the show doesn't become to segmented and structured as I liked the casual feeling of the show. Hopefully, the retool won't take too long and we will all get an great new version of the patch, or what every name you decide, soon!

    I was a huge fan of Game Club, which introduced me to a lot of games I don't think I would've ever known about or picked up. It was cool hearing the group discuss/play, even if a lot ended up being visual novels. Maybe the retool is focusing less on the games we're hearing about a lot (thinking now: Overwatch, Call of Duty, FFXV) and discuss/play those games we aren't seeing around as much that could be overlooked.

    Retooling and rethinking the podcast is fine but I still need an audio version! Sure, a cool new set would be great for y'all but I don't have an office job or free time to sit in front of a computer to watch all the shows I love. I need an audio version!

    A bit sad I watch 3 podcasts right now on the rooster teeth channels Try Hard because I love the screw attack guys death battle cast and the patch.  The thing I love the most about the patch is it feels super chill when you have discussions about games so hopefully you can keep that vibe going at least when it is reborn.

    I'm bummed to hear they'll be pausing to rework the show, I've come to enjoy the fact it isn't solid, much like the RT podcast, every week can focus on one thing that is repetitive of multiple small topics. Crowded space of podcasts on gaming? Off Topic and Dude Soup have always been about those groups (Funhaus, AH) I've never viewed them as a medium to discuss video games more than "this is fun". More often those podcasts are about stories, movies, general interests, pop culture. But The Patch started with Xbox One announcement and has always been a look at the current state of gaming, from console, game or developments. 


    The Patch has been my attachment to Video Games since it began and I have always looked at it as the news outlet, I do not have the time to watch all the videos on The Know, and honestly find them a bit long for my enjoyment. The weekly podcast wrapped up things, had a nice mix of people with various interests in gaming to offer praise or critique of the subjects discussed, and I felt like an informed individual with the legwork done by cast for the quotes from the stories. 


    I worry that the pause will hurt momentum and cause the returned Patch to shutter after a shorter time upon its return, but I also know RT has new pieces to the company that analyze shows, how they're doing, and what people show up for, so I hope this works out for the best in the end. I will be one waiting in line when it returns.

    I am indeed saddened by the announcement.  The fact is that I understand; the need for a clearly articulated niche is strong in a crowded lineup.  Still, I always watch the Patch.  I've only not seen 1 episode out of the past ~120. 


    I am a big fan of AH. But I do think it is nice to hear Ryan's opinions/musings outside of that environment.  Ashley is the big seller for me.  I am fine with retooling as long as the spirit is of those 2 have a chance to talk over gaming concepts and news, with someone else there for notes or perspectives.  I've long preferred the 3 person format, though a limited time special, 4th seat guest is cool.  Since the Know reads have gotten more in-depth in content and longer in form, perhaps it does make sense to pull back from news as a core concept; at least, so there isn't a rehash of the same developments to those who do watch nearly all Know videos (me). 


    Still, all good things...

    What I like about the Patch is that there's game news + you guys' opinions on it. Personally, I usually don't watch the Know episodes that often, so it's nice to get some news directly from the Patch and in addition hear what the cast has to say about it and what you guys think of some games after you've played them. I do agree it should continue as a game-heavy podcast because as many podcasts as RT has, they don't all solely talk about games and game related news. 


    I do hope you guys come back soon, I really like Ashley, Ryan, Gus and the additional guests you guys bring in! I like to see the various people of RT make an appearance once in a while.

  • RVBCheckmate

    I think that this format of having the regular hosts works well (Ashely, Gus, Ryan, and Adam if he's up for it), but I think it would be better if you try to get guests from the video game community, like online gaming personalities from YouTube or games critics/commentators. And of course, you can use people from Rooster Teeth if that's easier.


    I think that this show could be improved if it were more organized. Divide the show into segments: one segment talks about games you've played (sort of like the Patch Game Club), and the other section can deal with video game news and topic of interest. And here, with the format of having new guests every podcast, you can discuss games and get different perspectives that you wouldn't be normally getting from within the company.


    Those are my suggestions. =)

    I like the current format as well. The other podcasts talk about video games, but they don't go into as much detail about the development or rumors about video games. Plus I like Ryan and Ashley's snarky comments they make about certain games from time to time, and I wouldn't want that to go away.

    The Patch is great as it is...  I never "watch" any of your shows except for RWBY and RvB.  I like listening to podcasts and video game news, I do not need to see it like the "The Know" etc.  I hope this isn't another FullScreen bullshit move.

    I thought Game Club and well known, established RT/The Know staff were cornerstones of The Patch. Then you lost a third of the cast and totally stopped game club with no public announcement. 


    Just like most other people in this section, I like the show the way it is and the name. Sadly, the only reason you all would do this is because the show isn't profitable enough the way it is and/or the talent gap Meg left isn't filled enough for The Know to continue as-is. Guess that's partially our fault. I want this show to be successful just like every other weekly viewer, but what a bummer to finish 2016 with (as if it needed something else to suck).

    I feel like the content is fine the way it is. I do think the other podcasts aren't really about video games and more general talk (except for Dude Soup but it does cover other topics outside of video games time to time).


    I do feel like the set needs a new upgrade since the current one is a severe downgrade to the previous set with the newsanchor table.


    Also I think it can be longer since an hour a week isn't enough time to discuss things. The hour time limit was mostly a Gus thing and since he hasn't been around that much recently, the time limit can be increased. Probably 90 minutes would be ideal but 2 hours would be the limit.

    OK, initial gut reaction was "NO!!!!!!!!!! don't you DARE TAKE THE SHOW DOWN!". But after listening, I understand, RT has gone through a lot of evolution for the better and there's so much great content coming from the company now :D. I'm here every week so have seen through all iterations of this show, here are some notes:


    - Three people is the sweet spot for this show (unless you get a guest), I feel that the fourth person can't get in on the discussion or that the discussion gets too scattered/ broad since the show is only an hour long plz stick with three people each episode.


    -  I dislike this seating setup, I preferred when you guys had the table with the TV on the front. So yeah a Marcus set would be awesome!


    - I keep coming back for the discussion, so please don't stray too far from that if your coming up with segments for the show. I agree that some structure would be nice though.


    - I LOVE Game club so if it could be revitalized or worked in somehow that would be a juicy bonus. It wouldn't have to be a new game each week I mean that's too much for most people.


    - Maybe in place game club a bi-weekly gaming challenge could be played where the three of you try to complete some sort of challenge. Like when Meg or was it Burnie? played super meat boy that one episode. Though this might be straying too far? Sponsors only?


    Plz Come Back,

    "If it ain't broke; don't fix it".

    The show doesn't need a retool, It's fine as is. You give a good roundup of current gaming news as well as what you have been focusing on when playing which is exactly what it should be as the Patch is quite a personality driven show.

    Perhaps you could do with a new set, but I personally feel that the aesthetic itself is good.

    Just remember that change for the sake of change is not usually a good thing.

    Awwww don't retool the patch. I love the current format. Dude soup focuses more on the business side usually. Off topic and the rest don't really talk news about the games. they also don't really give really down to earth opinions about games. This podcast is tied for first between the rt podcast and off topic as my favorite podcasts. Don't go =(. ill have nothing to watch on Wednesdays.

    I will be very sad with no Patch to watch. It was the main reason I became a FIRST member. I probably won't be able to continue having this membership if I don't have a show like this to watch.

    I'm sure the Patch will have a great life on the farm with Screenplay and SportsBall :(

    The Patch is one of my favourite podcasts! Might as well call it the nicotine patch, because I need a dose every week! I loved that they exclusively talked about gaming. The RT Podcast, Off Topic, and Dude Soup may touch on gaming topics, but I wouldn't say they are gaming podcasts. I hope for the revamp they just get a pretty new set, and keep the same format.

    WTF. rip the patch/ game club loved everything about it except maybe the set.. its literally only the podcast that talks just about current games. the only other one i watch which might is funhaus, off topic or for 30 sec on RT podcast but that's not why i watch them because they are completely random, the patch was always consistent and reliable. i don't watch the attacks show or cow plop. i don't want to watch podcast of 30+ year old games and, sigh i don't really want to say it, "eat the member berries". i wanted to watch a roundtable of different thoughts and views about what's happening now and in the future but i'm not saying totally forget the past that's how we grow and learn. and as always more Ashley Adam and Ryan!
