Ever since this category was created, it has only caused people to become concerned about the invitation system; doubting their skills, asking themselves, “why am I not in wave x? I was last year”.
Previous years, Roblox has released invites in waves, allowing the notable and top developers to purchase their tickets first. However, just because you weren’t in the first or second wave again, doesn’t mean you will not be invited to this year’s RDC.
Roblox has clearly had a lot of major changes within the past couple years, including the growing of developers on the forum(New Members). Regardless if you’re on the forum or not, we can all agree that there is a significant amount of newer developers out there.
Developers who are constantly on the front page due tend to receive an invite in one of the early waves, but just because you weren’t in one of the first waves doesn’t mean you’re any less of a developer, or your chance of being invited/attending this year’s RDC is zero. Based off of last year’s RDC, we can conclude that there will most likely be applications once again this year, for people who feel they should receive an invite and didn’t make any of the waves. So, regardless if you end up receiving an invite or not, you still have a chance to attend RDC.
Applying doesn’t mean you’re not “good enough”, Roblox has thousands upon thousands of developers in the community, and there is just no way they can pinpoint every single person out there and send them an invite.
- Roblox has not released any official statement other than that the invites will be sent out in April. At the time of writing, it’s currently May and no other announcements have been posted.
TL;DR: Stop assuming the worst if you weren’t in the same wave as last year.
