PLATFORM; 360

 

UPDATE; This event has now completed. If you're interested, please see the second event in the series HERE

 

 

On the heels of the 'Old Mans Crack' challenge meet-up, Danny and I had also floated the idea of a GTA Online Olympics. After hitting the community up for ideas, we collected and bunch and are gonna give this a go.

 

If you're interested in participating please let me know if the day/time is ok and that you will be attending. The first 14 people will be accepted. (need 2 slots for camera peeps). Missed out? Many more to come... (see end of post)

 

 

Round One;

 

Proposed Date; Thursday January 30th – 6pm EST, 3pm PDT, 11pm UK

 

Here's the first three events;

 

Compact Sumo - Vehicle sumo wrestling on top of Maze Bank Tower. Contestants are placed on the top of the building with an Issi. They battle until one falls off. Best 2 out of 3 and we have heats until a champion is crowned. (Hat Tip; SecludedMemory )

 

Drunk 100 Meters - go to the ULSA track, drink 10 beer and race. The drinking is PART of the event. When the starter gun goes off, contestants start drinking, after 10 beer, they head down the track. Depending on how many peeps we have, we'll do 2 heats, then the finals.

 

Long Jump – at the long jump pit in the stadium, put a car at the beginning 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.

 

 

Notes;

 

Bring candy bars etc for keep health up and keep things fair.

Wear suitable sports clothes; shorts, Ts, track pants etc...

Bring an Issi if you have one, if not we will supply.

Bring beer... obviously.

 

Participants all participants must add me on 360. My GT is below);

 

Me ( theGypsy66) for filming

Mr Hollick - other cameraman

 

Participants;

 

Scoobroid (helped me test events)

Sugar Free Nos

The Lonesome Drifter
KimberJane
JayWeazel

ayeRUB

DS Monkfish

beanzinapot

Gsuphoesdown661

Nakura

Hellaflush070

 

Tournament of champions!

 

At the end of the series we'll be having a playoff of all the gold medallists along the way. We'll choose the top 4 events (based on views, likes and what we the community thought were the most fun) and then have the winners of previous events face off...

 

And hey... this is all just sh*ts in giggles in the sandbox peeps. Don't take it too seriously... we aren't.

 

 

 

Upcoming Events;

 

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.

 

Clay Pigeons; ride motorbike or bicycle off stunt ramp, contestants have to kill rider. First to 3 kills wins. ( HT – prototypetom )

 

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 HERE)

 

Car Curling - A target set on the ground, (perhaps using the helipads in the airport) teams must drive a vehicle (all using the same vehicle) at any speed towards the target, they have a specific point at which they must bail out and leave the car to free roll as close to the target as possible. Teams could have multiple cars like in real bowls or just one. ( HT – Chronolemon )

 

HALO Jumping – jumping off Maze bank, or from choppers, the last to open and survive wins. We would probably run heats and then the finals for this one. (HT – Insert-Coin-To-Continue )

 

Demolition Derby; last car standing. Use stock off the street vehicles in a traditional demo derby.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Triathalon... yup we all remember single player lol... but start at the top of Chiliad on scorchers... ride down to the Alamo sea, swim across, run to predetermined point (eg ammunation)... first to arrive wins... (could make this a mission yea?) HT – mo-seph

Work schedule means I won't be able to participate myself, but definitely looking forward to seeing the fallout.

 

Best of luck to those who can make it!

I'm in.

 

I'll make myself available for the proposed date.

 

My GT: Sugar Free Nos

 

Sounds like a lot of fun.

 

 

 

Also, I'll bring my own Issi.

 

Can it be upgraded?

 

 

Oh, and one more question.

 

If I want, say my second character (that will have the Issi) to compete in the sumo, and my main character (so my character stats will be max) to compete in the rest of the events, will that be allowed?

What days/times are best 4 u? Given you helped with the original ideas thread, would love to get U on.

Just let us know that U can make it... first come first served (other than the regulars like Danny, Scoobroid etc..)

I have added you to the list of participants. Please add me on 360... ( GT = theGypsy66)

 

Issi - no, to keep things fair they must be stock. I bought one and kept it stock, then we just used the Bob to dupe it for the test event. But, if you have a stock one, then sure.

 

Character - as you please. Just can't have 2 in the same event as far as I am concerned

Alright, I'll keep my Issi stock. No even sure how I would have two in the same event, but thanks.

 

I'll go get an Issi. I think I'll just bring in Tracy's from SP, lol. Or make my own.

 

I'll keep it all stock; scout's honor.

God dammit, if it was an hour earlier I could take part, sounds like fun :) sadly I have a media collage exam at 9am the following morning (UK)

Any idea how long it will be? If it's only about an hour I maybe able to join, but I'll have to miss otherwise.

Anyway, sounds like fun :)

I appreciate the offer, kind sir, but the nature of the best at the moment is such that I can't even guarantee any free time and if I could, it would more than likely conflict with everyone else. We still have a 360 dev console or two laying around but I don't think they would appreciate me putting another studio's game in to play when I should be working (sadly, :( ).

 

I'm more than happy with one of my ideas being used, anyway. :)

Let's see how it plays out as far as locations/time zones of entries. If we can move it an hr early, we shall try to accomodate. As for length, we went with 3 events to start to ensure we don't keep peeps TOO long. I have no idea how long it will take as well... first go at this. We'll try to organize as much as possible ahead of time, but I'd imagine it's gonna take a few hrs

lol... we'll there's no copyright/trademark on the idea, maybe someone on the PS can start one up?

As for the GT, please add me... it's easier (and let me know if GT is diff than forum username) - GT = theGypsy66

I wish I could but I'm on PS3. Hoping someone videos some/most/all of it because I know it's going to be entertaining. 

 

For the Sumo- I would personally make a custom deathmatch for the event, that way it'll flow better, and you can have a virtually endless supply of Issis, cargobobs, or whatever other vehicles you want for it. On top of that people won't have to pay for health insurance costs and you guys will get paid cash and RP for it after it's all said and done. Just don't make it too good, because I've been working on perfecting mine for a few weeks now :p (where the suggestion came from in the first place). Someone can probably put together a makeshift one in 20-30 minutes. Put 2 Issis (or whatever) on the roof, a whole bunch on the ground along with several Cargobobs and Froggers for spectator purposes, a whole bunch of free parachutes, and anything else you guys want and you're good to go. You can probably cut off a good chunk of time by doing it and move on to other events much quicker. Either that or I'm talking out of my ass.

I'll give it a try, just need to be able to get everyone into the session. The reactions and interactions are often as much fun as the event itself - thanks

 

And yes, we'll be recording it. We have two camera peeps for diff angles. It's great to keep the memories from them... (as we learned last weekend).

 

Hopefully one of the PS peeps will step up and start the series over there...

Same as above.....

 

As for the beer, you buy it at any store in the game (Pisswasser). They're good for more than just robbing them ya know... lol. As for beer IRL, that's almost mandatory for these events.

lol I added ya to the list without even thinking about it... And thanks for helping me do the promo vid. Should be good times. We need to decide what the next 3 events for the weekend will be

 

As it stands, unless we get some peeps from the PDT time zone, we will likely move the time up a wee bit to hopefully work for the UK/EU folks. We'll see where we're at tomorrow.
