This is The Academy.

Well, let's get down to it. There are membership qualifications to enter The Academy.
Mainly, you must complete the questionnaire included in the third post of this topic.
Secondly, a background check. The background check is a review of your posting history.
It will be up to a committee of Precinct veterans to determine if you pass.
There is no rating gradient. It is simply pass-fail. Being recruited into The Academy
does not mean you will a member of TP.

This is not a sub-gang, it is The Precinct's Multiplayer gaming clan.

If you do pass the background check, you gain acceptance into The Academy.
Everyone starts as a rookie. Through proper posting, contributions to the topic
(and the forum as a whole), as well as performance in game, you'll earn commendations.
If you screw up, you'll earn demerits.

There is a unique rank structure in The Academy. Ranks are as follows, from lowest to highest.


1. Cadet Private
2. Cadet Corporal
3. Cadet Sergeant
4. Cadet Lieutenant
5. Cadet Captain


Each rank has specific insignia and duties that will be explained in private.

I saw you guys put "Does he look like a bitch?", are you referencing Pulp Fiction? Because if you are, you have now become my new favorite official gang. inlove.gif

You should have "What does Marsellus Wallace look like?" on there, too.

This game kicks severe amounts of ass. The executions, the grenades tossing limp bodies twenty yards into the air, the targeting system, and the pure pleasure of beating an 80 year old woman using the melee system have rekindled my love of GTA.

Glad to hear that what was cut out of IV for the Aussie version is minimal (the hooker sheckz animation). I'm glad it's nothing important which would cause multiplayer not to work cross regions.
