Before I start, I want to mention that I've been to almost every single major hotseat event. I've been to several hotseat 1 and 2 events since 2011, a couple of Julien's bonus hotseat events, I've seen many infields of Jeffy hotseat during last year's world summit, and Alex's hotseat in DC and san Francisco.

So when I boast about a certain event, it isn't me just coming off some "seminar high" anymore. I've been in the community for a while and even though my game may not be up to par of many community members, I can spot a lot of subtleties and tell the difference between good and bad interactions. Not to mention that I've hanged out with most of the current instructors infield many times for the entire night I was out. (if you count the days combined, its almost 3 weeks). Tyler, Julien, Brad, Jeffy, Alex, and a little bit with Todd and Ryan, and the instructor's assistants who are often times excellent at game.

The new footage of hotseat is INSANE. I cannot contain my excitement of how much Julien's game has improved since just a YEAR ago so I must write about it first. While talking to Julien last year during the summit, I was mentioning how flashy and insane his infield footage was. Julien said "I don't think a lot of my longer infield footage is flashy at all. That's just what I normally do. Anyways, dude, if you check out my game right now, the old footage is nothing. I've improved so much since then. If I ever get to shoot footage again, it'll be insane."

YES IT IS.

The hotseat 2.5 is a transition program of the RSD hotseat 2. They have JUST put together the footage and showed it for the first time in San Diego. As the program gets some breathing time and air, the footage will be more defined and I believe RSD will officially launch the hotseat 3 in two weeks in LA. Really, DON'T miss this amazing opportunity to be one of the first to sign up for the event. They are mostly fresh footage just from Miami a month ago and show the pinnacle of what the evolution of game has brought these guys to by pushing boundaries and limits.

I don't want to come off wrong though. Hotseat 2.5 doesn't mean that they show most the footage from hotseat 2 AT ALL.  It means that they are beta testing the new footage. Every single footage except for the best ones from the past is brand new.

Day 1 was all of Tyler's new stuff. A lot of the new footage that Owen shows is stuff when his state is at rock bottom. No flashiness, not a lot of crazy humor; just pure confidence in himself and the belief of "there is no reason I am not enough" as Alex teaches. 

Honestly, a lot of the footage from the past was very flashy because RSD wanted to show people what was possible when you push boundaries. Many of the community members I've talked to have gone to talk about how they like Alex's hotseat better because he doesn't do a lot of insane stuff and seems very normal. But from what I've seen, Alex's verbal game has always been one of the best among instructors, not in a sense of funny humor (although he can be extremely funny), but his strong point is in emotional expressions where he can create small spikes of conveying positive and negative emotions and make the conversation so much more dynamic.

Tyler's new footage is even more normal than that, and I think that is precisely what he wanted to show this time to people who are new to the community. "Don't be intimidated that you're not saying anything interesting. You can say the most boring shit ever but believe there is no reason why you're not enough. Relax and just stick in there. Then state will transfer on that you are interested in what you're saying and they'll get interested too". All of Alex's principles applies but in a more toned down level.  Personally, it helped me much more than the previous footages because some of the conversation Owen was having with others was the most normal, boring stuff but he STILL MANAGES TO PULL because he's confident that the interaction is going well, and he sticks in there. And a lot of the pulls were made possible just because he stuck in there. It's like minimalistic game.

Though I say a lot of his stuff is normal, of course, he still has many footages where he is fully in state, pulling within minutes of meeting girls like a true G;)

Side note: Alex's hotseat is also extremely valuable and you should also attend that one to get a completely different perspective. Not to mention 10 HOURS of free bonus material videos that comes with the program where he breaks down the newest theory of complete game from start to finish. This alone improves your understanding of game by a ten fold.

There are also a lot of footage of Owen's new tactics in ways to neutralize the friend pulling the girl away, or other stuff that calibrates so well onto the girls he's interacting with.

But the best part is that attending one of Owen's hotseats are better than his free tour and video blogs often times. While attending the more recent hotseats, I realized that Owen talks about a lot his new theory and random stuff that he could never put on video blogs because of privacy issues or extreme provocativeness. This seems to come from boredom that he's showing the same footage over and over again, but relates to the videos and is one of the most useful new information. His boredom makes him teach brand new ideas that he's excited about and comes off genuine and exciting throughout the program.

I still love the fact that the hotseats teach concepts from the very start. Other than their bootcamps, the hotseat is the best product RSD has. $300 for TWO DAYS of infield footage? 10 hours of videos, entertainment and education. You can't beat that.

So Tyler teaches a lot of the stuff mentioned above for his day 1 hotseat which are core principles.. But he does all the heavy weight lifting for the insane footage the next day. Julien's infield.

Julien's game is the best among all instructors I've ever seen. He's not a guy who became insanely good at game just because his mentality and humor is different anymore; what I mean by this is a lot of RSD members believe that Julien's game is unreplicateable for most people because of his personality traits only works for him. But now Tyler and Julien have extensively broken down his game where they can explain step by step on what he is doing and what its making the girls feel.

Julien is a master of game, a true puppeteer. He's Neo from the matrix who sees the patterns of the matrix better than anybody else and toys with it. Hanging out with him in field, I've never seen Julien get blown out from an interaction. Of course, he still gets ignored by girls every now and then, but once he starts a conversation, even the very first interaction he has during the night, they can't leave him. He is extremely self-amused. He can talk to a 55 year old woman for 2 hours, get fully into state, then pull the hottest girl right after. He TRULY doesn't care who he's talking to.

These two are the biggest improvements I've noticed from Julien's game.

1. Extreme self-amusement; his verbal game has improved 1000%; whatever comes out of his mouth is exciting, even when he's talking about the most boring stuff; you feel it, and the girl feels it. His masculine polarity, challenging attitude draws them in immediately.

2. Extreme awareness of what the girl is feeling at the moment. His empathy level is ridiculous that he knows exactly what the girl is feeling at the moment to the tee. This way he can calibrate even before the girl knows what's going on. Many times the girls verbalize this: "What's going on right now?". They can't believe the interaction is going so fast. As Jeffy puts it, they're on a water slide just getting swooped away.

With the two combined above, none of his sets are boring at all.

My favorite video is when Julien goes in for the first time in the venue, he's all out of state, and he talks to one girl just for the hell of it. He says something like "I suck. I'm really lame right now." during the interaction and he tells the girl to stay because he needs to loosen up. The girl DOES kind of want to leave him because he's not hooked that well yet. His stuff is still good enough for the girl to stay, but in a venue as busy as that, there needs to be more stimuli for her to keep being engaged. About 3 minutes into the interaction, you see Julien's mind clicking. He loosens up; he's getting in the zone. The girl immediately gives him feedback. She tells him that he was kind of OK at first but now she's so engaged that she can't leave him now. As the interaction progresses, Julien's personality just shines with ridiculous humor and self-amusement. He leaves the girl, talks to the next girl and hooks immediately. And as the night goes by, this girl can't leave him. He pulls.

He pulls the hottest girls and only the hottest. Girls who fend off anything that comes their way can't resist Julien. 

 In another set, Julien gets a super hot girl to get down on her knees and beg for his affection, fingers her, all in the middle of the venue where everybody can see; He pulls her to an alley way within an hour. The girl had no chance. To her eyes, Julien is God. Julien knows this and teases her to an extent where she is so helpless that she just wants to jump on him.

Oh day game, day game, day game. Yes, there is a lot of day game in the new hotseat where the sun is shining brightly on everybody in the middle of an open mall district in South Beach, Miami. Julien's game is no different. At one point, he talks to the first hot girl outside Starbucks, hooks immediately, hooks her friend who is inside Starbucks separately, stops a model who's a total stranger walking down the street alone and merges the sets, and number closes. The club promoter who was in the mixed set thinks Julien is the coolest guy he's ever seen and wants him to come to his club. He's no doubt the coolest guy in the area and everybody's attention is on him because they're having so much fun.

He pulls a stripper during day game in the street. All his number closes are solid.

Every girl he talks to can't ignore him. His game is too good. There is a day game opening compilation of him stopping walking sets, sets in bicycles, strippers, models, girls on their phones, girls who are just chilling in a cafeteria, girls during cross walks, all hot women.

And of course the good old footage from a year ago is there as well. The night game opening compilation, the solid pulls and the number closes that happen so fast, the Tyler vs Julien compilation where they try to steal each other's girls on purpose. When I first saw those videos, I thought they were the most amusing stuff ever. But honestly, seeing them again, they were BORING compared to what he is doing now. Julien was saying some of his conversations in the new material were boring, but I don't think a single person in the hotseat thought that way. He was captivating attention from start to finish. 

He breaks down all his interactions like a strategist and conveys it so you can understand it and apply it yourself.

This is what true game looks like. Julien has the best game among all the RSD instructors I've ever seen. Even his facial expressions are hypnotizing that you can't take your eyes away from him while he's in field. The song quote: "You are a cinema" was meant for this guy, not a girl. LOL.  His little comments, back handed compliments, masculine polarity, his body language and self-amusement; I don't think anyone has a better understanding of the vibe of interactions than Julien does. He is also a ridiculously effective instructor where he pin points your issues and snipes at your weak points and extensively explains it.

I feel truly lucky to be able to hang out with him while I was in San Diego since he'll be heading to Europe soon. I'm also privileged to be able to attend the new hotseat. Thank you, Owen and Julien for putting this event together in such a short time. Owen slept a combined 16 hours in 5 days editing new footage and still ran the hotseat on the 6th day without anyone noticing that he was tired. He actually looked alert and happy when he was teaching. Then he went out and taught bootcamp and shot videos at 4 in the morning for the vblogs. WHAT A BEAST.

One last thing: even though Owen and Julien don't need to, they do a hotseat event on Sunday anyways. The event on Sunday went on into 1am in the morning, so if you are booking a hotseat, make sure you be prepared for Sunday as well.

No company has a product that exceeds the monetary or educational values of the new RSD hotseat. 

P.S. These guys are STILL taking infield footage so I believe their material will be continuously updated from now on.

Sick, sick review dude. Glad you got a lot of value out of it. I certainly enjoyed the hell out of it as well and I took extensive notes which I'll post up on the main forums once I get it formatted.

Go out there and kill it bro! :)

Well assuming RSD put up fake reviews, don't you think we'd be a little more competent in hiding that? ;)

But I agree, it would seem super sketch at first glance. Only problem I was with OP this past weekend so...

Regardless, it's just one single feedback from one person. We'll certainy be getting more as the program gains steam.

Thanks man!

btw Hotslut85 to be real, the forum is read by less than 1% of our list (the frontpage is well read, but not the comments....think of all the websites you read but could be fucked to read the comments....) so we're too lazy to fudge a review.  We also have plenty of students who love the programs, so it wouldn't be a good utilization of our time.  I'd rather focus on continuing to do important shit.

Regardless I could see how you might get that impression, so fair enough.  But ya man the HS3 is basically just the full versions of the type of infield footage you've seen sparsed into my vblogs, so it's pretty easy to get a general idea of what the program is about.  I felt this review was very on point and appreciated it a lot.
