Crew Cut: The Mavericks

Posted on September 7 2012, 4:58pm | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

This week on the Crew Cut, we're featuring several Crews and emblem artists who buck the trends on Social Club and really stand out from the crowd. 

The impressive accomplishments of the aptly named 'Unfair Advantage' Crew. Watch your back if you run into any of these folks playing Max Payne 3 during this weekend's Double XP session.

Sometimes you find a Crew who has just got it all. Unfair Advantage surely takes the prize for the best All Round Crew on Social Club right now. Their 89% Feud win percentage is difficult to match by most Crews, but combine this with a great emblem and the fact they've entered the top 100 Crew on the Xbox 360 leaderbaords despite having just 26 members and only being one month old and you've got yourself some serious world-beaters that look like a force to be reckoned with. With prominent player EelsInCaves having sounded the call, expect them to be challenging for the top after this weekend's Double XP.

RoyalL_Genius is a committed Social Club community member who rose to prominence as a key part of oft-featured Crew the RoyalL_Legends. He's since formed a splinter group of Max Payne 3 players called the Contract Killerz Crew. After switching to Open Enrollment last week, the Crew has ballooned in numbers to dwarf the roster of RoyalL_Genius' former running mates. The surge in recruitment may have something to do with a fantastically detailed and imaginative emblem that captures their name and spirit quite well. RoyalL_Genius is committed to making it into the top 10 - so if you're looking for a new Crew of dedicated PSN players to roll out with, these might be your guys.

From Left to Right: The Contract Killerz Crew emblem, the Zombie Zuckerz mosaic emblem gallery, Emblem Addicts take on Red Dead Redemption and the Lawless Gangstas honor John Hillcoat's latest.

On the logo front, we spotlight a Crew who has done amazing things with not one, but all 12 of the emblems on the front page of their gallery. Zombie_paste was astute enough to see the potential for publishing emblems in a specific order to make an entirely new mosaic in the gallery of his Crew the Zombie Zuckerz. Full marks for ingenuity; we're interested to see how other Crews can take this idea further...     

Inspired by the unique visual energy of Red Dead Redemption, stealthyassassin has contributed a stand-out effort into the gallery of emblem super-Crew the Emblem Addicts. With a stark economy of color and a clear aesthetic, this emblem is a worthy tribute to John Marston's adventures in West Elizabeth and New Austin. It seems apt to feature alongside the emblem of The Lawless Gangstas, which refers to the latest film from veteran director John Hillcoat, who's responsible for one of our favorite westerns (2005's The Proposition) and also directed a fantastic short film using the world of Red Dead Redemption to re-imagine John Marston's pursuit of justice and salvation.

Finally we'd like to again showcase a range of emblems from one artist in particular. Noru 112 is a user who clearly takes a purist's joy in the emblem editor, showing off a consistent yet dynamic style while filling his own Crew, the Hidden Daggers' gallery with his creations. While the Crew currently lack Feuds and points on the board, Noru112 has made an impassioned appeal for more members and greater ambition. With the Crew now set to open enrollment, Xbox LIVE players looking to a splash a stylish emblem across their victim's death screens may want to consider this squad.

                Hey Rockstar, when I try to leave a crew from my crew list it doesn't seem to work when pressing the confirm button it doesn't load or do anything, ?

                  @GODWIN. Follow those steps :

                  -Login to Social Club.
                  -On the bottom click on "Manage Crews".
                  -Crew list will show up, click on "Leave Crew".

                  If that dosen't work, try with another web browser, if you're still having the same problem something ain't right, wait for Rockstar's answer.

                  @bananawrist I had some issues with crew invites and after contacting Rockstar Support it worked. But confirm on Crew management option if the status setted is Actively recruiting...
                • R* Kon September 11 2012, 8:25amReplyFlag
                  @bananawrist Thanks for helping out, infolady.

                  Indeed, check that your Crew is set to Actively Recruiting and, if you still have issues, contact our support team.

                    Hey R*.
                    Knowing your love for satire, ya fans and small horses.
                    If ya going to have watcheable tv shows in your next gta installment(they were hilarious in gta IV).
                    Give us a heads up if ya going to do a satire on a certain cartoon about small horses.
                    That would sell me and 100,000s of small horse lovers instantly on the game, no doubt it would be incredible.

                    Also, MORE PRINCESS ROBOT BUBBLEGUM!
