It's that time of the year again, the time for GTAF Gang Cup 2013.
The cup will take place only on GTA V this year, and in it's dedicated modes, which aren't in such a huge number as they were in IV.
The lack of TW, Car Jack City and other Cup modes will be replaced by new V modes, such as LTS and other.
The draws have been made, so this is the lineup of the duels on the PS3 and 360 side. PC side is non-existent this year, unfortunately.
This is the lineup below. On the PS3 side, winners will play in the final, losers in the battle for 3rd place. On the 360, Legion awaits the semi final winner in the final, and the loser of that semi will end 3rd, as there is 3 gangs like on PS3 last year.
The Damned-The Highway Reapers MC
Mobilized Mercenary Division-The Yardies
Academi PMC - Warriors of the Night
The Legion -
The dates for the matches are the following:
1/2 Finals ----- November 17th, 2013 - November 24th, 2013
Finals ----- November 24th, 2013 - December 1st, 2013
So basically, we'll be conducting 1/2 finals likely this coming weekend 22-24, and the finals and battles for 3rd place the next weekend (29-30-1st december)
You can of course get the matches done before the weekend of course, especially now seeing that everyone plays on every day, and there isn't much inactivity like with the IV.
Minimum for the matches from GTA V will be 3v3, so 2v2 will not be allowed, so do a 3v3, or 4v4 which is recommended.
R* created a lot of maps for Online, but some of them only feature up to 4 people, so even if they are good maps, some simply cannot be used due to these restrictions.
Hopefully when the content creator comes out, we'll be able to recreate all existing maps and make them 16 people sized, as well as add new maps.
For GTAF Gang League 2014, we may even create(the gangs playing) a few custom races/dm's and so on for use in the event, but all in it's time.
The following 5 modes will be playing during this cup, and hopefully next year when Capture the Flag mode is out, and the content creator, the range of modes becomes bigger, and who knows maybe R* might even return some older modes or add newer ones(not very likely though)
- Team GTA Race
- Rally Race
- Last Team Standing
- Team Deathmatch
These are the modes. You can find their settings in the 1st post, as well as the download link to the playlist containing the 5 chosen maps for the modes.
Please follow the weapon/type/etc settings written below the modes in the settings, so you know what to do.
Certain weapons are not allowed because some take very high levels to unlock, and some are simply overpowered, so the weapons allowed pretty much match GTA Iv's Standard weapon setting.
In case we somehow end up tied in some of those modes, a random Race tie-breaker will decide the winner of that round.
Make sure to add the playlist to your game now, so you can conduct some training prior to your 1/2 final matches or the finals/3rd place afterwards.

I might make some slight adjustments to the playlist tomorrow regarding the Team GTA Race map choice (In the grove may be slightly short), but the other 4 are all set and should be very amusing and intense.
I'll also write which race is the one to be used for tie-breaker tomorrow, and fix any other errors that may have snaked in(It's 4 AM after all)
I think that's about it, any more questions, ask, download the playlist and good luck in your upcoming matches! I've also PM reminded the gangs now letting them know of the playlist!
So once again, good luck and have fun and may this Cup be an amusing testing ground for the upcoming 2014 GTAF Gang League!
