With last week's release of the all-new Social Club Crew Hierarchies feature, we've seen Crew Leaders jumping to exert their authority and assign rank amongst their mobbed up minions. Crews of all sizes and statures, from perennial top dog Founder LXG Crew down to eager upstarts like the GTA Annihilators, have been busy promoting and demoting Crew members to the positions of Commissioner, Lieutenant, Representative and Muscle. Here’s a quick look at how some squads have been parlaying the feature to tighten up their ranks for this fall’s planned extended holiday in Los Santos & Blaine County...
Meanwhile, thanks to newly-christened Leader Phatgordo13
, the official GTAForums
Crew immediately started putting on weight in the form of 68 new members, swelling their ranks to a stocky 129 total head count as of press time. Playing his cards a little closer to the vest, he went with a rather modest Hierarchy, sporting 3 Commissioners, 3 Lieutenants and only 2 Representatives as opposed to the traditional pyramid structure we’ve been seeing. On the opposite end of the spectrum we have Free Aim pro Crew Slaughterhouse
, keeping their numbers deliberately low at 20 members to keep their constituency lean and mean. Crew leader ITALIAN
handed out ranks pretty evenly, with nearly equal numbers between Commissioners & Lieutenants and identical billing between Representatives & Muscle. It will be interesting to see how those razor-sharp Free Aim skills translate from Max Payne 3 to the open world of Grand Theft Auto Online
, and if a need for additional skillsets results in this exclusive Crew taking on more members.
Crew Leaders, Commissioners and Lieutenants, do give a shout in comments below to share your Hierarchy strategy thus far...
One of the more epic Crew recruitment announcements we’ve seen is the video above for the Aegis Legion (EGIS) Crew
, made by Leader el_serpe
. No stranger to the Crew Cut
, el_serpe’s latest vid is the perfect bridge from Max Payne 3 to GTAV, displaying the past triumphs of Crew members while conjuring a stinging buzz for the very near future.
The Lost NZ (LOST) Crew
are another group of auteurs who are using the power of the moving image to spread the word of their squad, which you can peep here
