Crew Cut: Current Grassroots Events, Official Live Battle Scores and More

Posted on May 22 2014, 6:25pm | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

For this edition of the Crew Cut, we highlight some dedicated squads organizing their own awesome grassroots events and tournaments, recap the most recent official Crew vs. Crew live-stream confrontations and check out some excellent and creative Crew vids.


The CAP PILLAS Crew's official Head Hollowers Tournament trailer.

For those looking to join up with a Crew that has lots of activity, you’d do well to give a look to some of these well-organized Crews that have been hosting everything from grassroots tournaments to indie Crew battles and more.

The CAP PILLAS (BANG) Crew for one are also putting together an epic tournament where they'll be competing amongst 21 other Crews to see which one emerges as sole survivor. Organized by Leader HOT_KIMERA (who helped run a similar Max Payne 3 tournament last year), Head Hollowers is a Free Aim fight to the finish being held June 13th-15th. Watch the trailer above to see a line-up of who's participating and read the video's About details on YouTube for full info on dates, times, rules and other particulars.

The Reapers of Lyfe (REAP) quite frequently post Team Deathmatch battles on their YouTube channel and with over 80 battle vids since March, REAP have a prolific output that perhaps even 2Pac would have had trouble keeping up with in his heyday. Led by CallmeChaun, this outfit is currently ranked 48th in TDMs with over 2,700 wins and a 1.33 K/D. Feel free to hit 'em up, if you're not afraid of winding up another notch on REAP's belt.

Another busy bunch are the TURNTUPGANG (TTUG), who have posted 40 battle videos on YouTube. With a solid 167th ranking for TDMs, TTUG are a selective gang, requiring prospective members to fill out this survey, covering everything from personal Crew history to motivations for joining.

The PS3-based JAMESTOWN RANCHOGANG (JTRG) have also put up some of their bloody battles for the world to see. Always set to a blazing hip hop soundtrack, JTRG bring the pain to each and every shootout they post.

And in addition to projectile competitions of the expected heavy artillery variety, we’re happy to report that Darts tournaments also seem to be in vogue. The infamous Ganja Outlaws slung some miniature arrows recently on the heels of their anniversary, and the Ageing Infidels (21UP) notably held a 24-man darts contest for members only. Following a third place runoff between brothers BigDen454 and WrenchedOut24 (the latter won those bragging rights), conk12 edged out -Quper- for the big W. 21UP are holding all sorts of team building activities that members (and prospective recruits) may want to look into participating in, from a golf tournament to homebrewed Crew battles.

LIVE BATTLE RECAP: Highway Reapers VS. Aegis Legion (796-749 REAP)

Highlights of the REAP VS. EGIS Crew Battle courtesy of Aegis Legion.

Speaking of Crews known for grassroots competitive activity, the Aegis Legion (EGIS) are also no slouches in that department – known for hosting such events as their current Limitless 16-Crew TDM tournament (currently in its 2nd round of competition - full details here). So when the TDM stat strong Free Aim outfit the Highway Reapers (REAP) Crew reached out for a PSN Crew vs Crew Challenge, we knew just who to line them up against.

From the outset of the battle, Aegis looked to have a leg up on the Reapers in the initial Team Deathmatch on the Vespucci Shoreline. However, some player drops on both sides resulted in a mutually agreed-upon restart. This time, the resolute Reapers rallied with a calculated vengeance, nabbing a win in every other team-based game mode played for a final score of 796 over Aegis Legion's 749. The Reapers' BloodyWarlord was particularly valuable, taking a definitive lead to first place in the bike Race Farm Fresh and capturing the highly contested tank during the Verified Job, GTA: That's My Rhino. Aegis Legion can, however, walk away with their heads held high after taking the top six positions in Business Trip showing steering wheel superiority against the motorbike savvy MC. You can watch the stream in its entirety at the Rockstar Twitch archive.

LIVE BATTLES RECAP: Ganja Outlaws VS. LS Mafia Family (846-754 LSMF)

Ganja Outlaws proudly posted this excerpt from the very beginning of the battle where we introduced WEED’s historical glory.

You better believe that LSMF are much better at GTA Online than they are at Skype - as evidenced by their stunning win in the contest that followed the initial meet and greet proceedings. LSMF graciously posted this excerpt to their own YouTube channel.

After beating the Ganja Outlaws (WEED) in a private battle, the LS Mafia Family (LSMF) Crew had the opportunity to offer a public rematch as they went live on our Rockstar Twitch channel in the most recent battle. For the Ganja Outlaws, it was the perfect way to celebrate their two-year anniversary on the Social Club as one of the O.G. Founder Crews. In a playlist consisting mostly of newly Verified Jobs, LSMF took an early nine point lead straight away on Stream Racer, a point to point bike Race created by Refuso of the Red Rum Racing (RRR1) Crew. After three rounds, the score was tied at 257 and the turning point came in That's My Rhino, which saw LSMF increase their lead from 5 to 19. From there, they never looked back, eventually winning the match 846-754. It was a high-stakes outing filled with intensity and drama - thanks to both Crews for an action-packed stream. Above you can watch a couple of excerpts from the episode that each Crew posted to their respective YouTube channels, and you can also watch the entire archived battle at Rockstar Twitch.

And here are just a couple especially standout Crew-made videos that are definitely worth a watch this week.

The Chaos From Above (CFAL) Crew continued the popular trend of re-enacting Hollywood favorites in GTA Online and went down a less traveled road... "Holiday Road" a la National Lampoon's Vacation. Scored to audio clips from the movie and driving a customized Dundreary Regina that is pretty darn close to the Griswold's family station wagon, the only thing that seems to be missing is Christie Brinkley as they make their way across the countryside to the promised land of the Del Perro Pier amusement park - which is never closed for repairs. For more great vids from CFAL, including a chaotic car plant courtesy of that very same wagon, take a gander at their official YouTube channel.

You have to respect a Crew brave enough to admit their shortcomings - and the Shaolin Riders (GONG) do so in appropriately self-deprecating fashion with this charming low-lights reel, "Loser" that is essentially Crew Leader Oracle13 getting waxed again and again. GONG have other awesome videos to choose from as well including this shoot 'em up with a side of Wu.
