Crew Cut: A Look Back at 2015's Top Performers

Posted 3 weeks, 3 days ago | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The Festive season has come and gone, with the final snows in GTA Online marking the end of another year of carnage on the blood-soaked streets of Los Santos and Blaine County. To help commemorate some of the great Crew-fueled activity of 2015, we're taking this opportunity to highlight top performing Crews in select categories for the latest edition of the Crew Cut.

Acknowledgement is also in order for the countless legions of Social Club Crews out there also doing great stuff in less quantifiable areas of creativity and competition - and look for continued features on these types of squads throughout 2016. But for now, feast on some cold, hard data we've collected about some equally cold, hard Crews.

ADVERSARY MODES: MOST WINS & KILLS
2015 brought the debut of Adversary Modes to GTA Online. Whether you're making Every Bullet Count, or teaming up with fellow Slashers to bring down the Beasts, communication is key when it comes to dominating the various Adversary Modes in GTA Online. Of course, the ability to rack up the kills doesn't hurt, particularly in Come Out To Play and Siege Mentality. 

LSRealGangsterPS4, PS4 Car Meets, Ganja Outlaws, GANG ALBANII AK47, The LowlyGentlemen and The Luckers prove this point with appearances on both sides of the board. Particular credit must go to NoDo PS4 whose 'Nonchalant Dominance' has them holding the #1 spot in wins, and second place for kills among all Crews.   


To account for variations in membership, we've averaged the figures in the table above by the headcount of each Crew.

TEAM DEATHMATCH: WINS & KILLS (PER MEMBER)
Team Deathmatches are all about body count, so it's no surprise to see one Crew holding down the top spot in both matches won and kills made. Merkalot, previously featured in the Cut for a video showcasing their incredible marksmanship, and only 24 members deep, racked up an average of over 80,000 kills per member on their way to winning 948 Team Deathmatches in 2015.

Shout to We Hate All CampersSuperioresVsupremacyAimfamily and CocoDrailS as well, who all have great showings on both sides of the board. And of course no surprise to see headshot maestros Last MESSIAH (and the aforementioned We Hate All Campers) make it in to the top 5 Kills Per Member standings.


RACES: WINS (PER MEMBER)
When it comes to racing the streets of Los Santos, the incredible performance by S CLASS PRO RACERS puts them head and shoulders above the competition with 2,496 wins - more than double the tally of their nearest competitor, Dominators 1. Notable YouTube collective Evolve Stunting (recently featured in this article about the GTA Online stunting scene from The Guardian) clock in at 5th, proving that they have more than just flashy stunts in their repertoire.   

SNAPMATIC: MOST LIKES
And while many come together specifically in the spirit of competition, there's also a long standing and thriving community on GTA Online with a specific eye for beauty and detail. We're continuously impressed by the ever-growing collection of fantastic and imaginative photos from the Snapmatic community and the thoughtful Crews that have formed around this pastime. Snapmatic stalwarts GTAPhotographers and Snapmatic Art would surely be disappointed at anything less than podium finishes on this list - congrats to both on living up to the name. Many other well-known Snapmatic Crews make up the rest of the list. Make sure to follow us on Twitter as we regularly highlight some of the best offerings from Crews such as Brothers of X, Efin Secsy Club and Loz Brutaloz and many more.




Sensational, sultry and in some cases subtle, here are just a few of many standout shots from the galleries of 2015’s most popular Snapmatic Crews. Taken by Crew members: wittyBlack-Mamba, VinewoodonfireMAKAVELl, Nemosphene, slimsy1901 and I_Miss_U_Liza.


The Crew Cut highlights exceptional grassroots community activity, events, accomplishments and other happenings across the thriving Social Club Crew scene. If your Crew is doing something special that you think the Social Club community needs to know about, hit us up at mouthoff@rockstargames.com and tell us all about it – you might see your Crew featured in an upcoming edition of the Crew Cut.

Fan Videos: Executives and Other Criminals Film Festival

Posted on January 6 2016, 11:23am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

Check out videos from over the past few weeks posted by an award-winning Rockstar Editor director, a prominent Social Club Crew of redditors, and several YouTube stars, all of whom have been getting to grips with the wide range of content in GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals. Whether they're manning the cannon on the Turreted Limo, getting a high profile Target to safety in Extraction or simply decompressing with some friends in the hot tub on a new Super Yacht, the videos below show off a good taste of the Executive lifestyle.


REBL - Yacht Parties [R* Editor] by REBL Community

Some may recall reddit based Crew REBL PC (formerly known as the Reddit Rebels) showing up in force to flaunt their GTA Online Lowriders. Now they bring their unique style to profile on the deck of their new Super Yacht, showing that when you’re on top and living lavish in Los Santos, it won’t be long until others come to try and spoil your suit. All set to the sweet and apropos sounds of Neon Indian’s “Change of Coast”.


Turreted Limo Cinematic Showcase (Commercial) | EXECUTIVES & OTHER CRIMINALS DLC by YEAHMAP

Envisioning the weaponized Benefactor Limo as a completely reasonable purchase option for your average consumer, renowned (and contest winning) Rockstar Editor filmmaker YEAHMAP put together this cheeky commercial spot to entice (and instigate) all would-be "Bosses".

In a typically audacious outing, Vanoss is joined by frenemies Lui CalibreMoo SnuckelH2O Delirious, Wildcat and Silent Droidd for some patented Freemode shenanigans and hijinks - Executives style.

GTA 5 - Declasse Mamba Cinematic [Car Showcase] by Keys Plz

Rockstar Editor director Keys Plz uses the in-game suite of video creation tools to put together this super sleek and stylish glimpse of the new Declasse Mamba Sports Classic. The custom "SUPRMACY" vanity plate is certainly a classy touch.


Grand Theft Auto V - The Executives by Berdu

Berdu has always made a point to include friends from the Full Leather Jackets Crew in his previously featured stylish films such as Marathon Men and Joyridin'. About this outing he muses, "This is how rich people actually live. All footage captured unscripted that one night when Kimble bought a god damn yacht. This is our Crew enjoying the Executives and Other Criminals DLC."


GTA 5 Online NEW Adversary Mode | EXTRACTION! (GTA 5 Online Gameplay) by iamfallfromgrace

Charming Aussie YouTuber, iamfallfromgrace tries her hand at the brand new Adversary Mode "Extraction". Taking on her own squad, the FallFromGraces Army Crew, Grace assumes the role of the "swagalicious" Target, making a harrowing escape in an attack Chopper after being pinned down by attackers. In the second round she plays as a Bodyguard and takes a clever shortcut off an overpass smoothly getting her VIP to the Extraction Zone. You should check out some of Grace’s previous Adversary Mode gameplay videos like “Every Bullet Counts” and “Running Back” as she always puts on a great show giving it all with her Crew.

Crew Cut: Crews Living the Low Life, a Real Life Skydiving Crew & More

Posted on November 10 2015, 6:52pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The Crew Cut highlights exceptional grassroots community activity, events, accomplishments and other happenings across the thriving Social Club Crew scene. If your Crew is doing something special that you think the Social Club community needs to know about, hit us up at mouthoff@rockstargames.com and tell us all about it – you might see your Crew featured in an upcoming edition of the Crew Cut.

CREWS LIVING THE LOW LIFE

Now that Benny's Original Motor Works has officially opened its doors, Los Santos citizens have been flocking to customize their new rides for the car shows and bounce-offs being organized all over Southern San Andreas.

Exhibiting a true show of force, the REBL PC Crew put together this Rockstar Editor video to showcase their new whips as well as their skills with the Machete and Machine Pistol. 

Oozing style and color, these videos by the Ivaneh and Six Star Street Racers Crews beautifully show off their newly acquired rides by bouncing high, popping hoods and leaning low to the side.

Cruising the streets of Los Santos in their new Lowriders, Anonamix and his Crew the Traffickers keep it low n' slow.

And you just know the Lowly Gentlemen were amongst the Crews positively chomping at the bit to take these new rides to an all-star car meet.

 
 

LOS DEMONIOS – THE SAGA CONTINUES

With the Rockstar Editor now added to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of GTAV as part of the recent Freemode Events Update, there's been an influx of console-based directors releasing high-quality Crew recruitment videos and other Crew productions taking advantage of the Editor's robust suite of tools. Ever since appearing on the Crew Noticeboard last September, Los Demonios MC have exhibited a flair for the dramatic in their mission to put a fresh spin on traditional Motorcycle Clubs. Their latest recruitment video effort really dials up the production value and is truly amongst the best recruitment videos we've seen yet, as Leader EPMUSICMAN attests: "We have so many talented members in our group, and especially with the addition of the R* Editor to the XB1 platform, our GTA experience has been brought to a whole new level of creativity!" 

SKY CHILDREN IRL SKYDIVER CREW

The Sky Children join Vice City Crime MobHillbilly Agenda and Merryweather IMF as one of a handful of Crews who have notably let their passion for in-game Crew comradery translate into real life friendships. However, it's not every Crew member who can convince their Crewmates to put down their game controllers and step out of a plane door in real life at 12,000 feet with nothing but a piece of silk and some positive thinking between them and solid ground. SKYZ have done just that.

Social Club member Mechluvin managed to compile this footage video entitled "A Journey" - chronicling the in-game and real-life skydiving adventures of his fellow Crew mates making the legit transition from the rarefied air above Los Santos and Blaine County to the open skies above Florida, France, New Zealand and Australia as a unified Crew of daring free fallers.


To see more cool sky diving feats by the Sky Children Crew be sure to subscribe to the Sky Children Collective on YouTube.

Pushing the limits of skydiving on GTA Online since August 2014, this over 400-member Crew houses over 50 real life skydivers and counting. In their video, we see some of the top brass of the Crew Hierarchy openly defying gravity all over the globe, with Commissioners redeyejediOgre, DirkDigglerRulesShReD_NzMrNimbus69 (an actual tandem instructor with over 1500 jumps), Foo-Hurru and (recently certified) Crew Leader EpicLeftz all taking part in Accelerated Free Fall jumps.

A special congratulations to Crew Leader EpicLeftz who recently gained the qualification to jump without a licensed tandem skydiving partner. In regards to his recent graduation jump, EpicLeftz said: 

"So my moment has finally come where I am able to say I am a certified skydiver! This journey has brought me through some of the most mentally challenging situations I've ever been in and I have made myself proud because July 10th marked the day my life began."

With his new qualification under his belt, EpicLeftz and fellow Floridian Foo-Hurru plan to meet up with JDM_SKIRK, Mechluvin, Nimbus and Skysha6 at Missouri River Valley Skydivers for a Crew dive sometime in the next year.

 
 

Describing themselves as a collective of "Basejumpers, skydivers, pilots, photographers, creative minds and free spirits", the Sky Children play on all platforms and have a roster that includes such esteemed players as "Queen of the Skies" Ash0191 and backwards skydive stunt originator weezlb who you can see soaring through the containers on the lower right of the quad above.

DEATH DEALERS TOURNAMENT UPDATE

HOT_KIMERA and the The H0T CLAN Crew are at it again with a massive Crew vs. Crew Tournament featuring 32 Free Aim specialist Crews battling it out in a 5-against-5 knockout style contest. Early voting after the third round appears spot on with Gooniemafia soundly leading with a K/D of 1.68 and 183 kills.

Crew Cut: The Top Daily Objective Crews & Off-Road All Stars

Posted on September 2 2015, 11:21am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The Crew Cut highlights exceptional grassroots community activity, events, accomplishments and other happenings across the thriving Social Club Crew scene. If your Crew is doing something special that you think the Social Club community needs to know about, hit us up at mouthoff@rockstargames.com and tell us all about it – you might see your Crew featured in an upcoming edition of the Crew Cut.

A DAILY OPERATION

It takes commitment and often serious teamwork to complete the GTA Online Daily Objectives, particularly if you're gunning for the weekly or monthly stacking bonuses. For a whole Crew to be as committed to completing them as Schleppo is, that's quite impressive. The 10 members of this squad have completed 810 Daily Objectives between them. Even without the stacking bonuses, completing 810 Daily Objectives is worth around GTA$7M - or if one person had completed them on consecutive days, a massive GTA$14.5M.

Shout out to the Crews rounding out the Top 5. Albachoross are an all-Japanese PS4 Crew who have just recently celebrated their 6 month anniversary on Social Club. The XenoAssassins, led by MissTwisted GTA, are "all about gaming - LIKE A BOSS!" on Xbox 360. The Cokney Rhymin Limeys will have been flying their whimsical flag for 2 whole years now, having originally been formed just in time for the original launch of GTAV on PS3 and Xbox 360. Finally, Bro Of Alta Street take their name from one of the central roadways in Downtown Los Santos, where we can presume they hang out when not completing their average of more than 52 Daily Challenges each.

OFF-ROAD ALL STARS: ROAR RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP


For more info on future Off-Road All-Stars events be sure to check out their official rally site at: http://www.roar-rally.co.uk/.

Since appearing in the Crew Noticeboard back in May, the Xbox One-based Off-Road All-Stars, led by charismatic Crew Leader and YouTuber IvI-Ph03nix-IvI, have gone from strength to strength, putting together a comprehensive website and even distributing their own elaborate and high-quality e-zine. Recently, Ph03nix collaborated with Commissioners Stevedogg51 and Yello Cactus to bring this Crew's vision for an official Racing Championship to fruition. The Rally Championship has its own separate website with information on how to sign-up, previous results and the forthcoming schedule. Here's how it works:

The championship consists of four major rally rounds known as The McKenzie Rally, The Chiliad Mountain RallyThe Redwood Classic and The Palmer Taylor Trophy. The lowest cumulative time across all four rounds determines the winner. Designed with multiple dates for players to post their time and no limit on the number of competitors taking part, players who sign up are asked to pick one custom ride from a specific vehicle class and use that same selection throughout the championship round. Each round's selected track is posted a week in advance to allow all competitors time to practice. Check out this promo video for a quick summary.

On the designated Race Night, all entrants join the Race and go for three laps, which break down as follows:

  • First lap: a warm-up lap tackled as a group to learn the course. All Racers must pull off the track before hitting the last check point.
  • Second lap: Racers take turns to set their time over the course of the second lap. This is recorded on the rally leaderboard.
  • Final lap: completed in group formation for a show of unity.

The primary reason behind the inclusion of having only one hot lap is to add to the pressure of each Racer to perform to their utmost best in front of their peers. To make the rally truly interactive, the rounds are broadcast on Twitch in cinematic mode with live commentary from none other than Ph03nix herself.


Above we see McKenzie Rally winner AUDISPORTQUATTRO taking the ROAR podium with an impressive finishing time of 5:27.571, placing a full 13 seconds in front of 2nd.

All throughout July and August, racers took part in the McKenzie Rally with AUDISPORTQUATTRO taking 1st place. Moving towards September, Racers are now practicing and preparing for the Chiliad Mountain Rally - a trek that takes drivers through unforgiving cliff-side tracks along Raton Canyon straight out to the Alamo Sea and North Chumash. On this course, ROAR organizers warn:

"One mistake could cost you the stage, round or even the Championship. Undulating and uneven tracks make every corner a challenge. Too fast and you'll flip off the cliffs and lose time, too slow and your rivals will eclipse your time. So then, what are your tactics going to be?"

 
 http://i.imgur.com/lM2jRET.jpg
From dusk till dawn, these shots from the first rounds of the rally reveal some pretty grueling racing conditions out in Grapeseed.

The Off-Road All Stars also recently launched PC and PS4 chapters for their Crew. There's still plenty of room on the roster if you want to get involved. The original Xbox One Crew is now maxed out, but if you ask Pho3nix nicely she may set-up an overflow Crew so that you can join them. However, the Group A section of the ROAR Rally Championship is open to all Crews so definitely hit up Stevedogg51 and Yello Cactus if you think you have what it takes to compete alongside some solid racers.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

Hillbilly_Agenda Crew Leader KnoxNerd reached out recently to let us know that his IRL quest to hand-deliver custom plates to his fellow Crew members continues. This time, his travels took him out to the Northwestern climate of Oregon, more specifically the small town of Vernonia, where he and fellow Crew member Gnarlinshreds attended the Vernonia Friendship Jamboree & Logging Show - which seems appropriate given the Crew's focus on outdoor life and comradery.

Crew Cut: Car Meet Carnivals and the Top Head Hunter Crews on Social Club

Posted on August 11 2015, 12:12pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

CREW CAR MEETS GOING STRONG 

6 Star Street Racers, captained by prolific YouTuber GTA-Wise-Guy, have really stepped up their game since first being mentioned on the Crew Noticeboard a little over a year ago. Having now accumulated close to 900 members, they've recently set their sights on PC as their leading platform, using the Rockstar Editor to not only craft a kick-ass Crew promo video but also to highlight their first official PC Car Meet shown above. Describing themselves as "tight-knit", they do everything from sitting back and relaxing at car meets to pushing cars to their limits while weaving through heavy traffic. Within all of that they encourage the members gathering at these meets to pick a specialty and put them into five distinct categories:

  • Speedster: High speed thrill seekers and masters of the race track.
  • Drifter: Driving in pure style.
  • Tuner: Building the perfect ride is everything.
  • Antagonizer: Rally with other crew members to wage war on rivals.
  • Outlaw: Become the most wanted.

The CoreGaming PS4 Crew (no prizes for guessing which platform they play on!) are a decidedly smaller collective of like-minded gamers. Despite their modest size, the roster is filled with names that might be familiar to Newswire readers for creative efforts behind the wheel and beyond... Lorzatrol was featured shortly after the launch of GTA Online Heists for her sweet shot of the Lampadati Casco, while her Crew mate zummere20 has taken the bullet art phenomenon in a new direction, using vehicles as the canvas. Finally there's video editor xiRoNiCzZ who gave Crew Cut alumni SolTezRobo Racing a hand on this promo video. For all intents and purposes, CoreGaming appear to be a great bunch to compare notes with when you're looking to trick out your favorite ride. Definitely check out their Instagram for several excellent Snapmatic car meet shots as well. And if you'd like to take part in one of their upcoming drift competitions check out their latest competition promo video and official website for further details.


On a clear summer day the rGTAV Cruisers behind the wheels of this sick line of custom whips have a great view of the LSIA Control Tower.

Last but certainly not least, there's Reddit based Crew rGTAV Cruises who are absolutely killing it with this full album of vivid photos from their latest Crew car meet event put together by Soloz. Members like trackmania101 are pretty handy on the video editing promos as well but in this case we thought we'd let a few of these gorgeous shots paint the picture of how well the attendance for their latest "sun up to sun down" gathering turned out.



From the sandy beaches of Del Perro to the glittering nightlife in East Vinewood this Crew really knows how to turn heads.


THE HEADHUNTERS

While the introduction of Bulletproof Helmets in the Last Team Standing Update offered competitive Crews on GTA Online some measure of protection from the single shot to the dome kill, we can clearly see in the chart above that it's done little to hinder these headhunting Crews from hitting their marks. Bagging and tagging in the largest capacity we see SuperioresVsupremacy with a sizable lead in overall headshots, followed by Divos Killaz, ASURA ZERO, atsushichan and Evolution_SA. For overall headshot accuracy the GIORNO and The_Last_World Crews seem to be taking the lead though we would fairly note they are averaging from a much smaller pool of kills than The_Key_to_Victory, Go_for_broke_forever and Last MESSIAH respectively.


CREW CALENDAR

Many established Social Club Crews regularly hold scheduled events which you can sign up to join. The calendar below presents a lineup of just a few upcoming August events on our radar, and if you or your Crew are hosting some fun upcoming activities, make sure to shout it out in the comments section below for other Social Club members to check out.

Equal parts action movie trailer and music video noir, the director here chronicles an epic supernatural battle taking place between the forces of good and evil once the sun sets on the streets of Los Santos. Mike describes the main driver character here as "One of the many Angels of Death. When the night sets in his sole purpose is to establish a balance between death and life."

This round of Rockstar Editor and other fan-created videos features a very catchy serenade to the Pegassi Osiris, a GTAV-inspired epic domino display and not one but two real-life rally recreations. If you like what you see below, make sure to follow us on Twitter where we regularly share impressive fan-made vids and much more.
 


"GTAV_GYMKHANA" - DualScreen edition - 2015 by TheS4tha

Video director and Crew Commissioner of the French squad FR SPARA, s4thanas got together with his friends Escuix and syke17 to do a spot-on, frame by frame remake of Hoonigan Racing Division professional rally racer Ken Block's open street circuit through the winding turns and open stretches of San Francisco. Subbing in a fully modded Karin Futo to drift in place of the Ford Fiesta HFHV, the side-by-side comparison shows off a great eye for detail. Feel free to watch the original full-screen in-game version as well.

GTA V in 40,000 Dominoes Screenlink! by WebGuy1000 - Domino Entertainment

Dutch domino maestro WebGuy1000 shows off some genuine GTAV love with this incredibly elaborate domino display that not only features Michael, Trevor and Franklin but also the official Rockstar and GTAV logos, as well as a carefully stacked Life Invader display, the iconic WASTED screen and even the Mount Chiliad mural. Incredible.

Dead [GTA V Machinima] by gtuned

Some may recall gtuned's excellent Bullshift: Out of the Black Crew promo video featured in a recent edition of the Crew Cut. Here, he collaborates with musician Sesh, with some awesome cinematography heavy on the shadows and contrast to establish an atmospheric and brooding crime-drama noir, offering the cryptic explanation: "Somewhere along the line the young man went crazy".

GTA 5 - Semi Truck Stunt Jump by BlackSmoke Billy

After seeing Benjamin Reed's semi-truck corkscrew jump, it seemed impossible that anyone could raise the bar on amazing big rig stunt jumps - but in this case it looks like BlackSmoke BIlly may have blown everyone out of the water. Billy does admit "I used a handling mod I made with OpenIV to make the truck go faster" but that's still a mighty impressive trailer catch regardless. Check it out at multiple angles above thanks to the Rockstar Editor's replay feature.
 


Imagine Dragons - Shots (Broiler Remix) GTA V Music Video by FullyTrollin

FullyTrollin has shown an aptitude for capturing the simple pleasures of riding through Los Santos in a sleek custom vehicle to a great tune in past efforts like Ghost Loft - Seconds and Panama - Always. In this presentation, he shows off every glorious detail of coasting out at dawn in a P-996 Lazer jet from the Fort Zancudo runway for a sublime daytrip through the LS skyline.

GTA 5 - Pegassi Osiris song by Unspoken OUCH Gaming

This particular YouTube video may be just one static screenshot all the way through – but it’s the audio that is the star of the show here. Unspoken OUCH has added to his repertoire of GTA Online inspired songs with a glorious piece of New Wave nostalgia that would fit straight onto a playlist on Wave 103. A warning in advance: this synth-heavy ode to the Pegassi Osiris will get stuck in your head quicker than a Pet Shop Boys single. Although sadly lacking a worthy backing video at the moment, Unspoken Ouch has invited all interested video editors out there to submit their own visual interpretations of this catchy tune at will. Good luck!
