The Crew Cut: The Highly Accomplished

Posted on July 20 2012, 5:00pm | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club

                        

HIGHLY ACCOMPLISHED

This week, we take a look at the Accomplishments section of Crews' profile pages to see which squads are working together to reach their targets. Ghostface_Killas Crew's roster of 92 players have clearly put the time and teamwork in as they recently racked up 5,000 Crew assists in Max Payne 3 Multiplayer on Xbox LIVE. With extra XP gained for acting as accomplice to a Crewmate's kill, it's no surprise they've also crossed the 5,000,000 threshold and gained an XP IV Accomplishment in doing so. As well has having a killer emblem, Los Santos Police Crew have an even more impressive Crew-members-to-Crew-Assists ratio. Their 45 members have crossed the 1,000 mark for assists, achieving the Solidarity III Accomplishment. These PlayStation Network players are currently recruiting, so if you fancy joining up with a Crew on their way up, talk to their leadership triumvirate of PUREOWNAGE760jessejames26 and "main Boss" kenny_fromLV.

Ghostface_Killas Crew exhibit an impressive trophy cabinet of Accomplishments.
 
                             

PC players looking for a talented and fun Crew to join could do worse than the CyberKillers. Not only do they have an awesome Daft Punk inspired emblem but their 14 players have put more than 1,000,000 points on the board, earning them an XP III Accomplishment. They are encouraging new users to "join today", so get involved. We also found one Crew who has set their own specific Accomplishment to target: Rampage Crew, led by FisFis, are out to "Kill 25 Crew members in 2 minutes!" Best of luck guys - let us know how you get on and who winds up serving as your foil.

 
MANGA & TOON EMBLEMS
 
We've come across two very nicely detailed emblems that pay homage to the Gekiga style of Japanese Manga drawing. The genre is characterized by gritty, bleak storylines featuring dangerous and often violent characters battling against dark demons both literal and metaphorical - an influence that some Social Club Crews apparently are finding apt to represent the mayhem and gunfire of Max Payne 3 Multiplayer. The pistol-wielding heroine on the left is an effort by ZeroFoxFK of The Faceless Knights Crew who we featured a few weeks back. The Faceless Knights gallery indicates that ZeroFoxFK is a keen tinkerer will go back and revise emblems, adding new layers to find the perfect combination. We particularly like the Faceless Knights initials tattooed onto his heroine's arm - nice touch. To the right, is an emblem designed by leonpoly for his Argentinian Crew, Leon De Monos. The boys from Buenos Aires are currently six-deep in membership, get in touch for your chance to sport this bad boy as your emblem.
 
   
 
Cartoons are also proving to be a prime source of inspiration for Social Club Crew emblems, with many users opting to strategically amuse their enemies into distraction and then follow-up laughter with pain. An impressive recreation of the beloved Towelie has turned up as the emblem for the high-minded Chronic Vengeance Crew, and despite several subsequent submissions to their gallery, quite rightly remains the Crew's active emblem. HitmanForum Crew make up for a woeful Feud win PCT with a retro and oddly pensive portrait of Sesame Street's mono-browed Bert, designed by Hungary's Nashoba. It seems that Mercs Inc Crew leader Time_Victim, featured previously on the Crew Cut, now has competition for title of best artist in Ponyville: the bronies of the 130-member strong Str8 Outta Equestria Crew have filled their gallery with various representations of Pinkie Pie et al. Check out their current active emblem, inspired by Twilight Sparkle, in the line-up below. Turning back the years are The Magoo Crew who we can only hope are mimicking Jim Backus' famous catchphrase over the comms everytime they notch another kill on Max Payne 3 Multiplayer: "Oh Magoo, You've Done it Again!".

          I just finished from a deathmacth and would like to say betto_sp is a bloody cheater. At Branco HQ map, i shot him with M500 shotgun and I saw the x sign showing he is dead but he came back and killed me. This happened not once but three times. I even melee him from behind and nothing happened. Eventually i killed him 6 times because i was hunting him, but obviously he won. Just wanted to flush him out in public because i dont have any video.

          Rockstar please sort your lobby system out.the constant crashes,drops and lag is really ticking a number of gamers off.if you want to keep what little community this game has it needs to be sorted.its been like this since launch and still no proper fix.ive invested a lot of hours into max payne but i'm finally at the point where i'm considering trading it in.its 2012 you have no excuse for poor lobbys.sorry this is off topic i just need to give you guys some sort of feedback.i hope the problem is fixed by the next dlc.i have faith that your already working on it but if its not fixed soon the game will die and you will hurt your reputation as a developer.look what SFXT has done to capcoms reputation.i didnt give you guys £40 for a game and £22 for a pass to play a game that doesnt work online half the time.please fix it rockstar i'm begging you.peace and love

            @ChunLisBuns420 Hi

            I totally agree with you and this discussion is going on from the beginning.

            The funny thing is that this is my first game where i really wanted to do the Multiplayer.

            I spend more than 100 hours to reach level 50 and then you have to start all over again if you want to get legend.

            And then you'll have to play the singleplayer about 4 times.
            I usually buy my games because of the singleplayer and this one is very nice of course.

            Don't get me wrong, i'm a fan of R* and okay, they want to get us busy until the release of GTA5.

            I would say ,to comfort your clients R* , triple xp 1 august on psn and a new map for free for everybody!

            @ChunLisBuns420 i know man, i had so many freezes and party fails when joining servers. some days its almost not playble. Hope you guys fix it soon and that we dont get this bs in GTA5! dont get me wrong i love R*games its the best out there by far, Legend games!
          • ChicagoEnigmaon July 23 2012, 10:56amReplyFlag
            @ChunLisBuns420 I've had zero issues since the last update. Are you getting the updates installed? Are you sure you're not confusing the loading and sync time it takes for some matches when several players join or leave when it's just getting started? I takes about 3 minutes sometimes when the match is not full when it first starts up, and others join in while the load is in progress. So people just get impatient.. I've noticed if 1/2 the group drops out, you'll return to the lobby. Try loading up a private match for yourself to see it if works out. Invite a friend or two to see if it works ok. But if that's not the case follow up with what Rockstar K said because I have no further suggestions.

            @ChicagoEnigma everyone i know that plays this game online, has these problems. update didnt do anything good for these issues
          • ChicagoEnigmaon July 23 2012, 12:28pmReplyFlag
            @DutchStoner I just checked to see what platform you're on. (PSN) Make sure you send in a support ticket to R* so they know about your issues. I've had no issues on the XBL side. They are quite helpful at resolving problems. I guess it would helped to have mentioned which platform was involved. :)

            Question thou. Are you using more than one firewall on your network? More than one NAT

            @ Yeah thats right th problem is not normal so fix it... I always need 30 minutes to invite friends and to play with them in a game without errors!!

            @DutchStoner Yes I talked with many guys about that in the Multiplayer they all have this problems!!

            @ChicagoEnigma I already contacted th R* Support... ^^ they didn't answer me.

            I have NAt Typ 2... I tried to configurate it to open Nat but it didn't work. You must change some stuff in the Configuration on your Router (Modem) whatever.

            @ChunLisBuns420 yea its geting real old fast same issuse just have no more intrest in multiplayer ill just keep it for the campain hopefully the maps comming later dlc will be good because where its getting close to the fall season agian and there is a lot of awesome games on the way it will be hard going back to play max payne 3 multiplayer if these issue are still not fixed loading times freeze up lag ect ect
          • ChicagoEnigmaon July 23 2012, 2:19pmReplyFlag
            @LiL-A-King1 Try opening ports on both firewalls. Your ISP may have control of one. So you might want to contact them for support on adding these port openings, sometimes called Pinholes.

            Xbox PORTS: 88 (UDP) Port 3074 (UDP and TCP) Port 53 (UDP and TCP) Port 80 (TCP) for Xbox.

            PSN PORTS: TCP: 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480, 5223, 8080 and UDP: 3478, 3479.

            @ Maybe that is what you have to say R*, but sorry that is not TRUE. Anyone playing this game in any lobby will "here here" any comment about the host migration issues, freezing, being thrown out of game/disconnected. If you recorded the lobbies or just listened in, you would know it.

            This may not be the forum for it, but your comment was not truthful in that it is not the norm. As much as I LOVE this game, these issues have some of the WORST I've ever encountered while playing online (ps3). You know this is the case as the player pool has dwindled over time, opposed to increase, as many just can't deal with it anymore. Yes, I have sent in my feedback as I love this game too much for the player pool to evaporate to one...me!

          Hey Rockstar. Could you possibly pass this on to the Social Club team?

          Me and I'm sure many other people would really like it if we could upload our own custom emblems to SC. Like already established clans (like on GTAForums) could have there patch or military emblem. Please take this into consideration. Its basically like the only con of the new SC.

          Thanks. :)
