The Crew Cut: KDR Stars

Posted on August 8 2012, 11:58am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club


We all know that it takes more than fragging to climb the Social Club Crew Leaderboards. You need to complete objectives in Gang Wars, hunt down Grinds and play together as a Crew if you want to earn the kind of XP that separates the contenders from the pretenders. However, this week we'd like to pay homage to those Crews that have their sights fixed firmly on their opponents' foreheads. These are the Crews with an average Kill/Death (K/D) Ratio higher than two, meaning their members have inflicted death more than twice as many times as they've been killed themselves. They may be scattered through the leaderboards but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be fear running afoul of them online.

The G0d Given Greatness Crew on Xbox 360 may have a cocky name, but they're backing it up with their 2.34 KDR and their 88% Feuds average (387 won), despite having only 12 members. We reckon they should get in touch with the U Got Smacked Clan and set up a grudge match; this German Crew has nine members and a KDR of just over two, but they're still ahead of G0d Given Greatness by around 100 places on the global leaderboards.


The Skullz Crew are long-time fans of GTAIV multiplayer (as you can see from their website) and it's good to see them repping well in Max Payne 3 on PC with a very respectable 2.45 KDR average. Hitting the 2.0 mark dead on on PC are Pro and Deadly Crew, proving that their motto of "only for pro and perfect players ONLY!" is not just hyperbole. We've found just one XBox 360 Crew who have broken the 3.0 barrier - mad props to the four Crewmembers of Team Avarice who are up to a superhuman 3.4 KDR. They've also racked up a 0.82 win PCt and taken 90% of all their feuds. Their motto is currently "We're recruiting", but if you fancy it, make sure you know what you're getting yourself in for.

Crews with a KDR higher than two are harder to find on PS3, but the four members of crybaby killers1 Crew are making up for that with a great score of 2.62 and a daunting Feud record of 94% (482 won). While everyone else on PS3 has a lot of catching up to do there, previously featured Crew HOT Clan can proudly display a 2.11 KDR as well as another emblem featuring a GTA femme fatales, Misty.



Every week we see a new emblem on Social Club that pushes the boundaries of everything we've seen before. This week was no exception and we are spoilt for choice for emblems to feature. However, it was impossible to ignore these two gems that Stumpy4770 has come up with for the San Andreas and Sons Of GTA Crews. The shading detail on the clothing is fantastic and stumpy4770 has really captured the spirit of each Crew (although what happened to CJ's feet?!).


CuddlyBunnie2 is another user who has devoted a lot of time to the Emblem Editor, and is a self proclaimed "huge fan" of YourTaxesAtWork. From the impressive gallery in CuddlyBunnie202's Friendly Neighbor Crew, we've picked out this awesome impression of Catwoman. (CuddlyBunnie2020 also has the dubious honour of having published the first emblem on Social Club inspired by Sir Elton John!) Iknowthatfeel has also drawn inspiration from The Dark Knight with this spooky rendition of Bane emerging from the shadows for San Andreas SF Crew. Great work guys.


Thanks to everyone who has got in touch via Mouthoff and via the Newswire comments to promote their Crew and their emblem over the past few weeks. We’re really glad that you’re all enjoying the Crews feature of Social Club and that you are committed to having a successful Crew with an emblem to be proud of. If your Crew isn't featured in the Crew Cut, please remember that there's some fierce competition out there and we can't feature them all. We do check out every Crew that is sent our way, and we are tracking you all very closely so get back in game and online and show us what you got! Also Crew leaders, make sure you connect your Twitter and Facebook accounts to your profiles so that when your Crew is featured we can give you a shout out on our other media platforms.

    2.0 kdr is nothing I've hit 2.65 without even trying. Pilots ftw :)

      i wish they had a non-dual wield mode because thats the only way these dudes get high scores because they play like noobs. guys with the real skill dont get noticed

        R*, can you explain why the KDR accessed through the Social Club differs to the one found on my 360 under crews? Thinking it might be that the social club KDR is overall, where the one on the console is the average KDR you had for that crew

        Not that we should be so obsessed with them, but I think its a good indicator of a players skill.

        I know this wont get read by many people now, but its the first time ive been able to load up all comments.

        The reason CJ (thanks for noticing that guys lol) has no feet, there are around 800 shapes in the emblem and it takes 5 minutes to load up on my slow arse computer, and I got distracted by my new Banshee emblem (which is finished, sort of. lol)
        Oh and my good friend Epilef didnt tell me he had sent an e-mail to R* about my emblems, so i didnt finish the feet lol.

        The reason no other characters are there. Im my eyes they are the 4 main characters of the old games, the Stories games were like DLC before DLC was available for consoles, and as you can see its a bit cramped with just them 4 lol.

        thanks again to R* and Epilef and to everyone who commented, even the bad ones, I can take it lol

          I notice that the level icon should be exactly the same as the player's level and legend. Although i am Legend 4 now, the Icon of mine in social club which shows my level doesn't change. it is a lock instead of the legend 4 icon, is that normal?

          Not sure where to ask this, but R*, when can we expect Disorganized Crime, like an actual date?

            These emblems are getting so freaking good it's incredible. I'm amazed every day I open my Emblem Addicts crew page to see what odd_one, ZeroFoxFK, and the other artists come up with. Then I come to the Newswire and see that there are other crews out there publishing A+ work and I love every minute of it. I haven't been creating emblems of my own recently (no time!) but I do update the emblem for Emblem Addicts regularly to showcase the work being put into them.

            Big thanks to CuddlyBunnie2 for the shout out, and to everyone who has joined Emblem Addicts. We're up to 107 members and counting, slowly making our way up the ranks. We have open enrollment, so anyone is free to join!

            Again, very impressive work this week. Stumpy4770, we've spoken about your emblems in PM before, but I want it on the record: Your GTA emblems KICK BALLS!

              @YourTaxesAtWork Ha, good stuff. We should have some new ones to highlight this week in the next edition of the Crew Cut. Hope to see you back in effect soon weaving your Emblem magic.

              @YourTaxesAtWork Hey ! How can I publish an emblem for emblem addicts ? I made this red hair guy for our crew but I get an error :( Check it by the way it's my crew emblem for now .
            • YourTaxesAtWorkon August 13 2012, 2:46pmReplyFlag
              @FlimSurpuissant Some people seem to be able to publish their emblems to more than one crew, but I haven't found a way to do so. That's probably why you're getting the error, because you already published it to your crew.

              @YourTaxesAtWork lolol Cheers again YourTaxesAtWork. Kickin and Balls come to mind with your emblems too lol.

                I've had my crew Guns4Fun up since the second day you could make a crew and I only have 3 members because it would be too easy to make a members wanted board for people like me who stupidly bought the game expecting to be able to use every feature of it my bad I guess at least BL2 won't disappoint me.

                    @R* I'm having trouble Publishing an emblem on Social Club, I emailed Support, and all they said was "Read this" - All it was, was a Ticket saying you had changed some things, and it should work, but that was back in May.

                    Do you have an email I could send my issue to, who will actually respond with some information to help me.

                      @iLewisGTA They will be able to help you. Just be sure you explain the problem to them with as much information as possible.

                    And for the psn players we will always invite you to play in a party with us if we have open spots. So you won't be riding solo which I know you guys hate doing.

                      We are having a contest for 3 weeks and the top two players who ever earns the most xp in the contest will receive a 20 dollar card for the console you are playing on. Xbox psn or steam if you have at least a 1.0 kdr you are in

                      All we ask is to respect the crew if you party up with them . Attach your psn live or steam tag to you social profile for easy tracking of stats.I am adding people for the following week
