Crew News: Member Cap Raised to 1,000

Posted on February 4 2014, 1:56pm | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club, Games


We’ve got some great news especially for the large Social Club Crews out there who’ve long since hit the historic member cap ceiling of 300. We’ve now more than tripled the maximum member cap for all user-made Crews to allow for up to 1,000 people in your ranks.

So with the ability to seriously swell your Crew roster head count, it’s time for some heavy-duty rallying and recruiting and we’ll certainly be on the lookout to see who truly grows their army or consolidates forces amongst affiliate Crews. Be sure to use your Crew's profile page feed and in-game messaging features this weekend to set up a few lobbies to meet, greet, audition or orient your new Crew mates (remember that in GTA Online. you earn 10% more RP for Jobs completed with a Crew member). And with join requests likely to come raining down heavy and fast, Crew Leaders and Commissioners should make sure your Crew Hierarchy is in order to help deal with the new recruits.  

With Crew headcount now reaching four figures, it's also a perfect time to get familiar with the recently released Crew Head to Head Playlist challenge feature. To initiate a Crew Head to Head, you'll need to create a Playlist that does not contain Vehicle Deathmatches, Survivals or any Jobs that require more than 2 teams. Head to My Playlists in the Online menus and you will see the option to start a "Head to Head (BETA)" by clicking the right stick on your game controller. From the lobby screen you can go ahead and invite other players from your own Crew, Friend's Crew or from Skill Matched Crews. You'll need to have some cash in your wallet to set the wager - the minimum is $1000 - but the ultimate Crew bragging rights are worth much more.

We're also taking the occasion of this new Crew update to kick off the first Grand Theft Auto Online Crew vs Crew battle live stream this Friday February 7th at 2pm ET broadcasting from our official Twitch channel. Tune in then to see us pit two bloodthirsty Crews against each other over the course of a curated Playlist of Rockstar Verified and Rockstar Created Jobs. Note that one Rockstar dev player will join each side to play in order to facilitate streaming and to keep things fair. We've already reached out to a few of the toughest Crews around (we'll be confirming the first matchup sometime this week) and will be contacting others soon. If you would like to be considered for the live stream battles, please get in touch with us at telling us your Crew name, a link to your Crew profile page, the specific platform you would like to stream on and a reason why you should feature on the stream. We may also show preference in selecting your Crew if you have a video that showcases your ability at competitive game modes - and if there's a specific Crew with whom you have beef you'd like to settle in a public arena - so definitely let us know via email. If we like what we see, we will get back in touch to find out your availability and to try and coordinate an upcoming battle. If you aren't picked, then stay out there and keep on truckin'. We're always on the lookout for Crews that are representing hard. (Although please note that anyone spamming the email or the comments section will automatically be disqualified from consideration!)

As always, for notifications of when our stream goes live, hit the subscribe and follow buttons on our YouTube, Twitch and Twitter channels and keep an eye out here at the Rockstar Newswire for Crew Cut recaps of the battles and announcements of upcoming skirmishes.

    please remove the crew cap altogether, or at least raise it again

      we would like to see no crew limits,and we want dead crews to be deleted,for example,some guy found a crew named Diamond Dogs 3 years ago,but he since then never again uses any Rockstar game services,it is called a huge waste of name resources,and Rockstar should delete DEAD Crew.

        el reclutamiento de mi crew aparece como cerrado,como puedo hacer para que sea abierto??

          Rockstar, Myself and probably many others would like to ask you to make crews unlimited. Certain crews like the few IGN crews have this feature but there are crews that many people would like to join but they cannot because of this restriction. Please consider changing this in the near future and if you had read this whole comment I would like to thank you for reading and possibly considering this idea.

            Why are the crews limited in the first place?
            • Prowess1on April 17 2015, 4:26pmReplyFlag
              My crew is Dragon Ball Z, and I've had a thousand members for the longest time and over 1000 something pending request. It sucks that a thousand is the cap. Definitely need unlimited.

                  Considering the R* Sanctioned 3 letter Tag crews are allowed more than 1000 members we need an increase. My crew has already hit the limit in less than 2 months due to a very active community. Creating a second sub crew just to allow more people makes it much more difficult to manage than having everyone in just one crew.

                    Why should IGN get special treatment and leave many great original crews lagging behind?

                      It should be unlimited caps so can compete with IGN.

                                  I wonder if rockstar would consider increasing the crew member cap again. I know a lot of people that want to join some crews but they have full members. I think it would be cool if it got increased to 1250 or something like that.
