At least to me, I would have never expected. I've watched this series since the beginning and never did I think the Rooster Teeth guys would break up the formula that we've become so used to in the Red vs. Blue series.
I, for one, welcome the new change and it's easily reignited my enjoyment out of the Red vs. Blue series. I hope to see it happen more often in future episodes. Check it out and tell us what you think of it!
