CAPPING A THOUSAND

 

   

Clockwise from top left: Nexxus Shoot My Ass (NXXZ), Crew Quoty (0410), The Procrastinators (NERD), Devastation (DNYT), Landed it HIKE (HIKE), Italian Figa Hunters (FIGA), The Meat Department (MEAT), Monster Drift Team (DRFT)

A round of applause for the very first batch of Crews to skyrocket up to the new member cap of 1,000 people. Out of the millions of Social Club Crews in existence, only about 50 were powerful enough to attract enough new recruits to hit the new cap within a week’s time, many of which are led by popular YouTube broadcasters who rallied their viewers to officially join their Crew ranks.

One of the very first to reach that benchmark were the Nexxus Shoot My Ass (NXXZ) Crew of Spain, led by the renowned YouTube broadcaster NexxusHD who’s been prolific with a constant stream of GTA Online videos lately, including clips playing through some of their own custom-made Jobs like “Base Maritima”. NXXZ has the distinction of reaching maximum capacity within only an hour or two of open season. What’s more, the Nexxuz army has an array of other affiliate Crews, ALL of which amazingly have rocketed up to the new Cap. Saludos to: PELOTON DE NEXXUZHD2Nexxuz Shoot My Ass, Nexxus on Fire, Nexxuz Move My World, Nxxz Drive Me Crazy and Nexxuz lol my body who are all currently at 1,000 members strong, and there's other Nexxuz community Crews ever growing and under cap for others who want to join in.

Another mega-Crew making waves and maxing out is LANDED IT (HIKE) from the HikeTheGamer YouTube channel, whom you may have seen over this Valentine's Social Club Event weekend taking the Albany Roosevelt off-roading with the Crew. From the looks of it, there are at least seven other HIKE affiliate Crews topping off at a thousand and several others that are packing the seats as well. Some other Crews bolstering their numbers impressively include the Italian Figa Hunters (FIGA) headed up by YouTuber YTCapoBastone, VintageBeef's cheekily titled The Meat Department (MEAT) and Crew Quoty (0410) and its vice versa twin Quoty Crew (0410) led by popular YouTuber Mr Quoty.

The Devastation (DNYT) Crew were another to quickly hit the new 1K threshold, led by YouTuber and Twitch streamer DomisLive who also did some Valentine's Event live-streaming this weekend. Definitely check out DomisLive’s regular Top Stunts video series, highlighting incredible feats submitted by Crew members and followers. As long as we're on the subject of burning rubber, the seriously packed Monster Drift Team (DRFT) headed up by bl00df3lla and its twin Monster Drift Team 2 (DRFT) is for serious racers and encourages its members to "smoke tires not drugs".

The Procrastinators is another fully subscribed Crew led by YouTuber Mattophobia, and with a meticulously organized Hierarchy with just two trusted Commissioners, three Represantatives and a mass of 994 Muscle keeping them strong on the streets.


LIGHTS, CAMERA, BATTLE

WINNER: [UFAV] 793 / [AGNT] 749

Once we announced that we'd be hosting GTA Online Crew-versus-Crew Battles live on Twitch, the requests from camera-ready, feuding Crews came flying in. Our first televised grudge match was broadcast on February 7th, pitting the xVX-The Agency-xVx (AGNT) Crew against rivals the UNFAIR ADVANTAGE (UFAV) Crew.

To keep things fair and to facilitate streaming, two of our devs, PlayRockstar and PlayRockstar2, signed on to be part of the good fight each joining a side as we played through a ten round Crew Head to Head Playlist that included Races, Capture, Team Deathmatch and Last Team Standing to see who would emerge victorious. Winning the first couple of Jobs in the Playlist by demonstrating cunning, savvy group tactics and solid racing skills, momentum seemed to be going with The Agency to start. Hanging in there, UFAV eventually won some rounds and showed off their excellence in deathmatch where gunplay was front and center. UFAV floored The Agents on one of the final battles on Vespucci Beach, ultimately giving AGNT the beatdown, 793 - 749.

You can check out an archive of the battle in its entirety at our Twitch channel and, if you and your Crew are brave enough to step in the arena and put your pride on the line on the stream, give us a shout at CrewChallenges@rockstargames.com and make your case - be sure to include a link to your Crew's Social Club page and what console you'd be playing on as well as info on any specific other Crews you may have a rivalry with that you'd like to settle. Please keep in mind that we’ll only be hosting a couple of these per month, so be patient as we schedule select battles throughout the spring, summer and beyond. 
 

AUSOMENESS


Keep it above 50: GTAAUS Leader Jamage007 created a mini game based on the '90s action flick Speed.

 

     
Clockwise from top left: GTAAUS (GTAU), GTAAUS Rebels MC, GTAAUS High Rollers, GTAU Hunting Squad, MKS SUBURBAN NINJAS (SUBS), Australian Illuminati (ORDO), Illuminati MCC (IMCC)

The Mouthoff inbox and our Noticeboard post comments have been getting a steady influx of Crews repping the Lucky Country down under lately. The GTAAUS (GTAU) Crew is a particularly strong set, with a healthy hierarchy led by Jamage007, a frequently updated Facebook page and a penchant for meta-games (see the video above as well as their Mount Chilliad Dump Truck Race). With their regular Crew nights, the gang gets together across both platforms. The GTAU is currently accepting new recruits in the wake of the cap lift, and you can also look into any of their alliance Crews, such as the GTAAUS Rebels MC, GTAAUS High Rollers and GTAU Hunting Squad.

Fellow Aussie, live streamer and longtime Social Club member Masterkizz also broadcasts the exploits and shenanigans of his MKS SUBURBAN NINJAS (SUBS) Crew. Check out this highlight vid of some funny moments from a recent stream. Then there's the Australia Illuminati (ORDO) Crew and their affiliates, the Illuminati MCC (IMCC) Crew. Both ORDO and IMCC have their own sites and they consistently hold events and competitions, including their recent "Best Garage" contest.

BELGIAN BROTHERHOOD

Meanwhile from another corner of the globe, GhostRusher51 and the Red DevilsMC Belgium (RDBE) Crew were also very keen to land themselves a place in the Cut. They sent over the appropriately titled presentation video above and alerted us to their strong Snapmatic presence as proof of their commitment to brotherhood. RDBE claims to be a tight-knit set - putting all members through a test phase to properly integrate them.


RIVAL FAMILIES

    

After reading our recent feature on mobbed up mafia-themed Crews, some other Social Club wiseguys took umbrage and are looking to assert their dominance over Los Santos turf. ReedySpiderPig5 made a tough offer to refuse in asking us to recognize the Varanzano Family (TVCF) Crew, in their words "one of the most feared crime families and part of the most powerful five family commission" going back to GTAIV. WHYTEBOI_204 of the CANADIAN MOBBSTAZ (MOBB) Crew was even more direct, calling out the previously featured MADE OF STEEL MOS (1MOS) Crew specifically: 
 
"Me and my Crew are the real MOBB SINCE SEPT/27/12 CANADIAN MOBBSTAZ!!! Our clan tag actually IS MOBB !!! We've been around since MAX PAYNE 3. I swear the 1MOS are straight biting OUR STYLE from the hockey masks to the red clothing. We been MOBBIN a heck of a lot longer then you. So if anybody from the 1MOS Crew is reading this or anyone who plays with them tell them to contact me for a Crew battle. I'm callin' them out. And if they dont... well then I guess we'll know who really deserves to be up there. I'm tellin' YOU RIGHT NOW we will never back down or give up. Your move 1MOS."
 
It looks like battle lines have been drawn. Perhaps we have a future Crew vs Crew Battle in the works. Your move indeed, 1MOS.

ACREWED ART

Cargo Tank by KidneyTheft

Among those showcased in a recent fan pic round-up, nomorekidneys let us know that his gang, the always provocative The Pink Sock (SOCK) Crew have put together their own photo group, Art of The Pink Sock. Broken down by VictimsCrew Shots and other categories, it serves as a chronicle of the group's exploits. And speaking of Crew snaps, the consistently prolific Ganja Outlaws also recently tweeted out this very cool group shot of the gang bursting out of the game's TV screen billboard. Eazy-E would be proud.


CREWS ON FILM


Training Day. Some of the Malicious Intentt (MAIN) Crew going off the rails.

In addition to wreaking havoc on the rails in the above video, The Malicious Intentt (MAIN) Crew have created a series of Crew trailers challenging other clans to step up to them.

For breaking news from the world of GTA Online with some pretty snazzy production values,
check out the latest from el_serpe and the Aegis Imperium (EGIS) Crew

The Faceless Knights meanwhile have assembled quite a collection of amusing Crew hijinks videos on their Twitch page worth checking out, including the chopping of Crew member sumitshift_fk, sniping a Buzzard and a pair of mischievous dump trucks.
