Also, just a heads up, our capacity has been raised to 300 as far as I know. From there our overflow will be directed to our 2ndary League GTANet Crew. If we keep growing at this rate we'll be referring people there by the end of next week.

We're also gonna need somebody who didn't make a crew yet, to create the GTAForums 2 crew for the next 300 members.

edit: Oh nevermind, didn't see the link.

If needed (after we fill the GTAnet Crew too tounge2.gif ) I can create and run a GTAF2 Crew.
We'll have to agree on what the name/tag will be cause I guess we can't use an already existing tag. wink.gif

I think we can use the same tag, we only can't choose a same name, but i think the tag can be GTAF again if there's the need for GTAF2 crew

I got an invite, but I can't figure out how to accept it. In the message, it just says that I've received an invite. But there's no way to accept it.

I may or may not get a PS3 in the future, and if I do, I'll be getting MP3 and GTAV for it. I'll also try to dream up a different tag, so I don't know how you'll deal with that.

I've already tried that. It says I have zero invites. I even got an invite from a random crew and that doesn't show up either.

So, since I'm part of the first GTAF crew, that means I don't have to join the second one too, right?

Correct, adamcs has put that in place for casual visitors to the V and IV sites and eventual overflow from here.

*And yes as I said on the last page the CP is very buggy if it doesn't allow you to click on a button to join crew, resubmit your request I'll keep approving it till it goes through.

Yes you can, GTAV is used numerous times on several crews.

GTANet is currently "GTAN" if ever there comes a time for a 3rd league I don't see any issue with them being GTAF as well, less confusing that way to be sure.

Any gangs, official and/or unofficial that haven't made their crew, 24 more hours left until they stop giving those veteran 2 stripers.
Maybe it would be good to register GTAF2 and GTAF3 crews now, just in case we are over capacity in current 2 ones, so that 2 and 3 can also have veteran status?

Good idea, do it. I think each one should have the tag GTAF.

I thought about that but in a way having Veteran status in the GTAF and GTAN crew and not in later versions will certainly make spots in the top 300/250 more desirable, no? sly.gif

*Anywho Midnight launch tonight, anyone wanting to run with GTAF for an all nighter add me.

You will of course be seperated by your formats but the overall stats of everyone in the Crew still come pouring back into the Group Collective Stats and are posted in our Crew header, so play well this evening my friends.

First impressions:

The Good
-High level of customization.
-Great set pieces.
-Top notch RDR style shooting.
-There's a soft target, auto aim mode and a manual aim mode (like IV and RDR) to choose from depending on your skill and preference.
-The unlockable system is pretty damn elaborate and borrows from a lot of sucessful shooters.
-Was genuinely fun.

The Bad
-Some terribly laggy games, much expected.
-Gang Wars: A sectioned off objective mode. Feels very good during some objectives and completely rough and unbalanced in others. During one objective we had to pick up money bags and run with them. They refused to be picked up.
- Melee? How the f*ck do you do it?
-If you're playing soft aim mode don't even bother with shotguns, you get ranged killed quite a bit.

The Ugly
-Most of what Icarus mentioned in the main topic. Unjust blacklisting of legit players, connection issues and forced updates midgame.
-Spawn trapping, it's a thing. (Already tounge.gif ). Some maps really play to it as well.
-Feuds: We encountered one Feud with the large Public Crew, The Payne Killers. There was no indication we were entering into a feud one moment, then suddenly we get this very small message "You are now in a feud with MP3". Literally 5 seconds later we get another message, "You lost the Feud to MP3". We were all like "wtf?!" So a feud looks and feels like the Crew equivalent of a Vendetta and can happen just that quick. I expected it to be something that would at the very least play out till the end of the match but it doesn't.
-You can get seperated from the Crew you are playing with and thrown on the other side, despite being in a party.
-If you are on a winning team and the other side decides to leave the match there's a very good chance you will get tossed on to the losing team to "balance" the match. WTF?! mercie_blink.gif

Goddamn was I furious about that. I'll see what R* has to say about it when they reply to my ticket. Funny how I was blacklisted, but then suddenly, I wasn't. I guess it's one of those day one kinks.

Last I checked before I signed off, the GTAF Crew was ranked 104th worldwide. Not too shabby.
