Hey gang... looking for some ideas. Dannybohy and I were talking as we were setting up the “Old Mans Crack” group session about some GTA Online Olympics and various events we could have. Given the Olympics are around the corner, it seemed a fun thing to do. We'll record the fun and share with everyone as we go.
Essentially all of the activities will be best 2 out of three with the winner moving on to the next round until a champion emerges. We don't really have many rules at this point, just fleshing out the ideas.
The potential events so far;
Bike Jousting – two peeps, two bikes, weapons free. Contestants ride towards each other, trying to kill the opponent. Best 2 of 3 for win. Elimination rounds to finals.
Grenade gauntlet – 6 peeps with grenades. Contestants take a confined path and run towards the tossers. First over the finish line wins. If both die, they go again.
Frogger – 8 lane highway at peak rush hour. Contestants start on opposite sides and first that makes it to the other side, wins and moves on to the next round. (see video at the end of this post)
Car Parkour; two contestants, busy road. Run down a set length of course jumping over oncoming traffic. First to finish, with most successful cars jumped, wins.
Sidewalk BMX; contestants travel down a set length of sidewalk to the finish line. First to cross wins. Must stay on the sidewalk... no DNF for killing pedestrians... of course lol.
Fighting the flames; combatants face off (fists and feet only) in a large ring of fire. Make use of dodging and positioning your opponent into the flames. Must stay in the ring. Best 2 out of 3 wins.
Old West Showdown; contestants stand 15 paces apart and are unarmed. At the sound of the starting gun, they whip out a weapon and fire (probably want to take auto-aim off for this one). Best 2 out of 3 wins.
Drunk 100 Meters; go to the school track, drink 7 beer and race. No weapons...
Long Jump Launch – at the long jump pit in the stadium, put a car at the beggining of the pit. Ride motorcycle at it, hit said motorcycle which will launch you. Contestant with the furthest launch, wins. Contestants get 3 tries each.
Speed. - Both players are assigned the same exact vehicles, with sticky bombs attached to them by 2 other different players. Then they zoom down whatever designated route, while the people in command of the sticky bombs follow behind in I guess Entitys since they are the easiest to drive. ( HT Biohazard Abyss)
Anyone have ideas of nutty things they've done that mike make for a good 'event'? Please do share. Also let me know which of the above proposed events, sounds like fun. Once we iron out the ideas we'll post in the 'Meet Ups' section of the forum. If you're interested in having me messaging you when we get closer, let me know in the comments as well.
As an example, here's a trial run we did yesterday for “Frogger”
