You know I'm seriously fascinated. What gives ? Like what unmentionable thing ? The whole thing seems/seemed draconian to say the least...Will this post get me a total site ban ? If so why ?

PSN Article Contest Winner
By moorjc

The book of DB was forged in love and written in Blood, and the great Warrior-King Hatch, started out a knight in the kingdom of PC Land, nestled deep in the northern plains. Little is known about the beginnings of DB, but most of the stories were passed down from word of mouth, so this is one account of what started the XDBX.
 
His father, King Hatcher saw his son become a great warrior, but the time had come for him to prove he is worthy to be a King one day. King Hatcher called his son to his chambers and showed him the Holy Book of Battery, and told him that he would show him the protocols that had to be followed, and the manner in which they should be enforced. He told him only a king can read the book, so he made a copy for him to memorize. He also told him about the strife between him and his brother Hatchet. Hatcher told his son the Book is perfect and must be kept secret, for the members of SquaredCircle are the last protectors of the 'WORD' 
 
Hatch saw that the Book of Battery was very old, and outdated, because the old ways were built on trust, and a man's word,  but now a days, there is no trust, only the guy with a bigger gun. Hatch didn't want a copy of anything, he wanted the book itself, so he stole it. A few days later Hatcher assigned Hatch a Unit of soldiers to infiltrate the enemies camp and steal their maps and any intel he could find. Hatch was ready and able to carry out his assignment, but his soldiers were untrained compared to the enemy he had to face.
 
After he lost most of the unit, to dirty bombs and head shots, he was lying on the ground bleeding out, and a beautiful warrior woman came to his aid, and her name was Rose. He didn't know a woman was in the unit, but there she was, on the battlefield pulling out bullets and helping him. They had to hide for a while, so she helped him to an old abandon building, where she saw the Book of Battery fall from his bag. She was a worshiper in the Order of the Lyte, and believed in the God-King Hatcher.
 
She heard about the book, but never saw it, and Hatch was knocked out so she opened the book and saw that it was blank. She didn't understand how a powerful book could be empty, so she became upset and threw the book at Hatch as it hit him and the pages fluttered into the air floating yet suspended in mid air, never touching the ground just a big paper ball slowly rotating. Hatch woke up abruptly and saw the floating pages, and then glanced at Rose. She told him he was a lie, and the order of the Lyte was a lie too, the Book is empty, with no words and no power.
 
She picked up her rifle and slung it over her shoulder, and she told him that she would have followed him to ends of the earth, and to the depths of hell, if the Lyte was real. She started to weep because everything she believed in was a lie. But Hatch was unclear on why she was so upset, but there was papers floating in the air with no words. Hatch slowly stood up and grabbed a page from the air, and gazed at it. He didn't see anything either, so he started grabbing them all and he realized he must have stole the wrong book. He glanced at Rose and then gazed into her eyes and told her that he won't make it back home without her, all his soldiers are dead, and we are behind enemy lines. He promised her that "we will leave this cave and start our own kingdom, and our own Order of the Lyte." Rose wiped away a tear and then asked him how?
Hatch glanced at the bandages and his dried up blood on the ground, and then studied her and told her 'we have to build it together.'
 
Hatch and Rose waited to till night fall and then made their escape, as Hatch saw the same group of soldiers who killed off his unit walking through the woods without a worry in the world. He told Rose he has to find out who those guys were, and where they trained. But before she could object and tell him to follow her, they were surrounded by the Curb Stomp clan. Hatch threw his hands up, and they asked him who he was? He told them he was a soldier looking to join them. They looked at each other and then started laughing, as they told him to follow them. They allowed Hatch and Rose to sleep in the pig house, not with them. Hatch told them Rose was his wife and she can fight too, and the soldiers said ok whatever.
 
The first few days were hard, the pigs were loud, and always eating something, but the missions that they had were successful and after 20 consecutive victories, they allowed Hatch to join the senior officer rank, and get a tent.
 
Hatch never told them his unit attacked them, in the first place, but for the next 3 months he learned about teamwork and building a brotherhood that can last. He saw that these soldiers were mature, trained and had a code of conduct.
 
One day, Rose whispered to Hatch and told him the God-King will never change how he does things, soon you won't have a kingdom to rule, because his soldiers are so untrained and disorganized. She was right, but Hatch wasn't there to save the Kingdom, or his father, as Hatchet attacked and killed all the royals, and soldiers and imprisoned the king. The Curb Stomp Clan had their own agenda and helping Hatch wasn't a part of it, but he was such a valuable  soldier that they decided to charter him his own unit, called the KKurb Squad, or KS for short. Under the direction of Hatch, his charter grew, and he started waging war on his uncle, by disturbing his economic transfer of money by stealing it.
Hatchet was a drug lord, which he knew Hatcher hated, but since no one could stop him, he took over the land with force, and made the farmers grow his drugs and had shop owners selling it for him.
 
After a year of causing mayhem, Hatch gathered his soldiers and stormed the gates killing the guards and freeing his father. Hatchet was banished from PC Land, and Hatcher regained his kingdom, bringing peace and love. 
 
Hatch had been waging a secret war for 17 months when he heard the Curb Stomp Clan was no longer active. He decided it was time to leave PC Land, and move to the United Play Station of Sony. Hatch never had never been outside his homeland, but moving to Los Santos was a dream he had as a boy, ever since he read a book called the GTA2. Rose was willing to follow Hatch half way around the globe to start a new life, but she wanted more from Hatch, and had a plan to achieve her goal.  
Hatch found some of his old soldier buddies in Los Santos and the Clan started up again, and Hatch was an honorary member anyway, but Hatch could also see, that they weren't ready for the new world order, and the new technology in Los Santos, so Hatch started the KS charter and thought it would be easy to start again, but he was wrong, some of his old buddies became crew killers and bandits, and Hatch was labeled a terrorist too because he was the leader of the KS. He wanted to enjoy his stay in Los Santos and he needed a Crew, so he started by creating order, with protocols that would make his crew the strongest in Los Santos.
 
The Book of DB was born, he started writing on the blank pages he stole from his father. Rose thought that the this Order of Lyte should include women soldiers, because they can battle too. Hatch liked the idea, and told her we could recruit couples, and the name Domestic Battery was born.
 
Hatch married Rose, and together they started to wage war on the Secret order of ATG, and those Constitutionalist, who are looking to bring in the New World Order. Most people in Los Santos are merely followers, living out their life, not knowing they are sleep, but we know and that's why we fight, because if ATG gains to much power, The rights of all people will be stripped away, and humanity will fall. The Book of DB is the power of the Crew, many have tried to join, but only a few will be accepted, because  we want mature members, who are willing fight for the Lyte, and bring honor to the DB crew.
 
Since January 28th 2014, the XDBX have been growing and getting better, and now they stand 100 strong and this only the beginning




Have you met DeaD_GooN?
By JustHatched

Our weekly segment where we get to know the person behind the control

XDBX- When and where are you most likly to be found on GTAO?
DeaD_Goon- I play weeknights from 6pm until....usually much later than I should. Weekends I've been known to pull all-nighters. This all depends on wether or not the boss is home.
When I'm not racing, I'm usually the Paleto Bay area, in the mountains off-roading, or wherever "the target" is.

XDBX- Are you a free roamer or do you prefer closed crew sessions, any why?
DeaD_Goon- It really depends on my mood. If I'm up for shenanigans, I'll free roam it. If I'm actually trying to accomplish something (managing garages, swapping out cars), closed crew.

XDBX- What did you go on your first date?
DeaD_Goon- Holy sh*t! I'm old, so not sure I remember. It probably involved awkwardly riding in mom's mini van.

XDBX- What is the 1st vehicle you bought in real life?
DeaD_Goon-1989 Camaro IROC. Had it about a year and traded it in on a 1992 GMC Typhoon. That thing was a beast.

XDBX- What are your interests outside GTA V?
DeaD_Goon- I've been into cars as long as I can remember. I used to water ski professionally. That was fun, and painful at times. I oil paint every now and then, and Adm wanting

XDBX- Do you have any pets?
DeaD_Goon- I'm a dog lover. I have 6 of them. A Husky, a lab/pit, 2 Jack Russell Terriers, and 2 mutts. 1 of the Jack Russells I call Joe Pesci cause he's a bully like Nicky Santoro.

XDBX- You are considered a top tier racer in the crew, any advise for the lower tier to improve?
DeaD_Goon- #1 Know the track. It helps to know what's coming next. #2 Be patient. It's quicker to go a little slower than it is to roll your car back onto it's wheels. #3 If you can keep up, don't pass, but follow DC, rev, G, Dodge and the other really fast guys. It's a long list.

XDBX- If you could add a weapon to GTA, what would it be?
DeaD_Goon- One of my favorites was the chainsaw in Vice City. I'd love to see it make it's way back into GTA.




Have you met Zmurko?
By JustHatched

Our weekly segment where we get to know the person behind the control

XDBX- When and where are you most likly to be found on GTAO?
Zmurko- I'm often on from late mornings until late night hours, but mostly in the GMT friendly evening hours. During the day you'll usually find me few miles behind rev's car on one of his tracks or testing creations from others, other than that I enjoy our organized meetups the most; vetting playlists, chaotic freeroam activities and super long photoshoots.
 
XDBX- Are you a free roamer or do you prefer closed crew sessions, any why?
Zmurko- I rarely venture into public free roam lobbies, I usually spend most of my GTAO time in jobs (races & missions) or crew meetups, used to spend a lot more time free-roaming when I still lived in Harmony, but usually in a closed crew session. Mom taught me not to trust strangers. ;)
 
XDBX- Are you married? Kids?
Zmurko- Nope and don't plan to be either. Though I love spending time with my 3 year old niece.
 
XDBX- What is the 1st vehicle you bought in real life?
Zmurko- A 5 year old used Citroen Berlingo for 4000 EUR for which I had to pay another 2000 EUR worth of repairs after a serious engine failure 2 weeks after I bought it. Swore to myself that I'll never buy another used vehicle. Though I loved that car, you could put almost anything in the back, I remember they loaded an entire pallet of shampoo samples in, probably way over the allowed carrying weight. 3 of us went cycling with it with all 3 bikes and camping equipment INSIDE the car. Sold it few  years ago and bought a new Opel Astra GTC, which I sold this spring beacuse I only did 2000km with it last year and was not really worth having it. You can find me driving a bicycle now.
 
XDBX- What are your interests outside GTA V?
Zmurko- TV shows, cooking (&eating), good beer, traveling and outdoor activities (hiking, biking).
 
XDBX- Do you have any pets?
Zmurko- Just a friendly spider in the bathroom corner that feeds itself, any pet I would have would proably die of starvation in couple of weeks.
 
XDBX- Has your feelings about the crew changed any since becoming Admin of the website?
Zmurko- Not really, I and hope feelings toward me from others havent either.
 
XDBX- If you could add a weapon to GTA, what would it be?
Zmurko- Something violent, either a chainsaw or a flamethrower. A longer range sniper would be cool too, I'd love to be able to snipe people down in the desert from a mountain top for example.
===============================================================================================

Re PSN article contest winner...And that won over the runner up ? No offence Moor I can see you put work into it. Also I have to ask Moor were you part of the PC brigade ? KS was it. Have to say a lot of the DB thing has been pure serendipity.

 

But back to the contest winner thing who was judging ? I'd certainly have given you a commendation Moor but think PB's runner up was more apt.

 

Again sorry Moor. It's pure and simple an opinion. Nothing more, nothing less.

Congratulations to the whole crew! We are ranked 84th (last week was 120th) out of all crews in Non-Contact Racing. We are climbing that ladder every week and I am confident we can get into the top 50 soon.

Have you met Matusware and SSRacing2?
By JustHatched
 
Our weekly segment where we get to know the person behind the control
 
XDBX - When and where are you most likely to be found when playing GTAO?
 
Matusware - Vanilla Unicorn! 24 7!...i think weekends on travors airport or in los santos international airport doing stunt jumps with my bike and also you can find me doing some totally legit jobs for totally not shady people you can also spot me cruising around the freeways with my beloved saber too..
 
SSRacing2 - It really varies depending most of the time will be around 8:00 pm central time. Although I do get on occasionally 12-2 to get beat in races by our great drivers across the pond.
 
XDBX - What was your first IRL job?
 
Matusware - I was mechanics helper, i was fixing lawn mowers, mopeds and stuff like that..
 
SSRacing2 - I was a paperboy at 13 which didn't pay crap so I will say my first job at burger king.
 
XDBX - Are you married? Have kids?
 
Matusware - Nope, never did find The One, so i also dont have any kids..but i have two cool ferrets..those count as kids right?..right?..or atleast minions?
 
XDBX - Where did you and your wife meet?
 
SSRacing2 - I met my wife in high school 16 years ago.
 
XDBX - If you could add a car to GTAO, what would it be? Why?
 
Matusware - This is a hard one, hmmm, 1987 Honda Civic Hatchback, Why?..this was legendary car for me many great memories and such
 
SSRacing2 - While the muscle class can be hard to drive I want a 1970 Plymouth Superbird. It just has that racing look to it and it is just dead sexy.
 
XDBX - What was your first IRL car?
 
Matusware - My very first car (that was like from Mattel commercial) was this god anwful Volkswagen Beetle from 1983 or something, Bright Yellow..and by bright yellow i really mean briht yellow like eye melting bright yellow, heater didnt work so you can imagen how fun it was in finnish climate..
 
SSRacing2 - Black 1979 Olds Cutlass Supreme 267 V8 engine. Man I wish I could find another one without rust.
 
XDBX - If you could sit down with R* devs, what would be the first question you would ask them?
 
Matusware - "When You Guys Say You "Fixed It", Is That Some Kind Of An Joke From Your Side?"..
I mean i can count with one finger the times when cloud servers actually worked without ANY problems.
*holding his middle finger*
 
SSRacing2 - When are you going to give me the damn heist?! Actually I would like to talk to them about their vision for the future of GTAO and how long they plan to keep it running.
 
XDBX - If you had a choice for a last meal, what would you order?
 
Matusware - Rye bread, mint tea with little honey and roasted sunflower seeds...what?
 
SSRacing2 - That is the easiest question of all. I would order a T-Bone Steak Well done, loaded baked potato, corn, with a beer. For dessert I want a piece of strawberry cheesecake oh and another beer.
 
XDBX - You have quite the flair for writing and imagination, do you feel kids today lack imagination due to video games as opposed to being outside and having to use an imagination to entertain themselves?
 
Matusware - When i was a kid wooden stick was a sword, some old junkpile was sleeping dragon and cartboard box was a spaceship, i think all this virtual world that we have now is not killing the imagination from kids but changing it and i think kids now a days lags a bit of imagination and i think kids should hang out outside more than they do..i have seen kids that have outstanding imagination but time to time i see those that just dont have almost none of that and some how..that scares me
 
XDBX - You were in the military for quite a while, what are 2 lessons learned in the Navy that everyone should use in their everyday lives?
 
SSRacing2 - This is tough because I am the person I am because of the military. The first would be the navy core values of HONOR, Courage, and Commitment. This was drilled into our heads day 1 of boot camp. The other I would have to say is Team Work. It takes all hands from the top of the chain of command to the lowest ranking working together to keep thing running smooth.

Blog of the Week
By moorjc
 
This weeks Blog Of The Week comes from Ro9M titled "The Beginning of the "Ultimate" Beer Blog"
 
Hey Guys!
 
Ok, where to start? I've never done this before and didn't even know the definition of Blog before I just googled it.
 
Earlier today I made a new topic about beer but it crashed and burned since Zmurko moved it... Good choice Zmurko, now I could try to make it as an blog instead ;)
 
Anyway, as many else one of my big passions is good food and beverage, especially BEER.
I was just thinking it would be great to share some of my experience in this blog, I must commence that this is not an profesional oppinion, just an oppinion of an half crazy Norwegian Gamer.
And I won't be using any difficult words in my beer reviews, and that's because I don't know the word's to use.

Have you met Rumdig?
By JustHatched
 
Our weekly segment where we meet the person behind the controller
 
XDBX - When and where are you most likely to be found on GTAO?
Rumdig - I can usually be found roaming LS almost every night, typically after 10 CDT, in some sort of crew related shenanigans. My RL priorities often get in the way of gaming more often as as much as I'd like.
 
XDBX - What was your favorite video game as a kid?
Rumdig - I had a few fav's growing up; the most memorable would have to be Dodgeball on the original Nintendo. Having the ability to completely obliterate your opponent was quite fun. A long list of first person shooters and racing games have come and gone since.
 
XDBX - Married? Kids?
Rumdig - Not married and no kids. Hell to the no... as of right now  :ph34r:
 
XDBX - What was your first IRL job?
Rumdig - Paperboy. I took over the job from my sister at the age of 11 and have had a job ever since. I was a British physicist in my previous life
 
XDBX - If you could add a car to GTAO, what would it be?
Rumdig - Tough question... I would have to say a 67' Corvette Gasser. It just seems as though it would fit in nicely
 
XDBX - If the crew were to visit you, where would you take them to get a taste of your culture?
Rumdig - I have culture? Lol. Well, I can show you the dirt in my rain gauge, a little uranium at the nuclear bomb dis-assembly plant, the 2nd largest canyon in the U.S. is 20 miles away, or we could just go play in the mud at the river and shoot guns while hollering "Yee-Haw" Lol. I take part in a few of these often  :D
 
XDBX - What was your first version of GTA?
Rumdig - The first GTA series that I owned was Vice City. To my surprise I really enjoyed running over pedestrians. Lol
 
XDBX - The crew likes to give you a hard time when you join a PL (all for fun), anything you would like to say about that? Why do you suppose they/we/I do that?
Rumdig - F*&^ if I know. You guys suck!  :lol: JK. I'm guessing this takes place because I enjoy it. I'm a shenanigan type of guy so it would only make sense for shenanigans to follow me as well. Dodge started it... :ph34r:

Recent Testimonials
By moorjc and Gazzaroon
 
To read or write your own testimonial about your XDBX experience Click Here
 
moorjc - I didn't realize how organized a crew could be until I met DB and I could see.
I started playing with Radoms, and some mission were ok, but most were not, because a lot players are annoying, and not mature. I thought joining a crew would be easy, and it was, too easy. Just join and your a part of something.No vetting, no teamwork, but a lot of crew killing, and I for one was down for that, plus whenever I went online I'd see 1 or 2 of my crew, sometimes, other than that I didn't see anyone. I bounced around a few crews, meeting great players who invited me to their crew and then I did a search for mature players, XDBX had an article, so I looked at the website and researched the crew, looking at the hierarchy to see how many were actual active DB members with DB tags. When I saw 98% were active with their tags I was curious, so I looked at other crews and I saw that most didn't represent their crew. They had active tags for some other crew. I sent my introduction, and registered on the DB website, and the game changed dramatically. I leveled up quickly from the playlist, and mobbing with my crew, and gained a lot of practice, stepping up my game, and learned to work better with others. It was amazing to me the very first time, to look at the TV screen and see 12 of my crew member on a playlist, and then when I saw 9 of us mobbing in FR, helping each other and fighting together, that was all I needed to see, because ever since I joined I didn't feel alone anymore, and I wanted to share this because many crews promise to do this and do that, DB is the real thing, and the vetting process is perfect, we have the best and I'm proud of that, with 130 strong. I know each member of this crew has been tried and tested, and they are a trusted, and mature player in the R* community. Don't get it twisted, we run into meat heads that don't get it, and they never pass the vetting period, but for those that do, this is the best crew in LS.
 
Gazzaroon - As I mentioned when I joined the site, this was my first foray into online gaming and this crew really is making it a very positive experience so far.
 
I first dallied with GTAO one day when I had finished the story mode and had read something somewhere about how good the online version was! So, I thought, let's take the the plunge and see what all the fuss was about. I customised my character and started out on the adventure. It was more interesting than fun at the beginning and the most annoying part was when an obvious pre-pubesant, sugar-filled (borrowed from someone else), intellectually challenged person constantly attacked me for no other reason than i was on level 2 (or something). But I carried on and started doing the missions for Marin and Simeon and of course other 1-2 or 1-4 missions.
 
Then a couple of weeks ago I was looking on GTAForums and came across the thread looking for mature players - and seeing I am mature in age, - I thought I'd that I'd take a stab and see what things were like. And, so far I am really impressed and getting used to playing with others online.
 
I like that when online, and you see another crew member, that there is often a little horn blowing as we pass each other - very civilised - hehe.
 
I am a huge supporter of the vetting system - even though my wife things I have moved over to the crazy side - hehe. I love the fact that we are vetted in order to maintain the original vision of the Crew. Long may that continue!
 
Everyone has been really nice to me on the forum and my experience so far has been the best for a game based forum.
 
I am getting used to 'playing nicely with other children', but any advice etc is still very welcome :D
 
And, as I mentioned on another thread, I love the fact that I am a consistent DNF in Crew races! hehe! I need money to buy and upgrade to better cars!
 
Thanks all for your positive experience and hopefully soon I'll finish the vetting process!
 
Blog of the Week
By moorjc
 
This weeks Blog Of The Week comes from moorjc titled "Shadow Wars of DB Chapter 4.1"
 
'Free Roam County is a strange and mysterious place because there are no rules, no age restriction, no laws, and everyone who enters this place is warned.' the plaque read right under the 'Free Roam' sign, and the writer was unknown. " Ya see that?" Nine said, "...this is the only place on earth that has that sign, that's why, when I have a bad day, I ride though here, it won't take long, till some Randoms start pippin at me an I give it to them, killing as many as I can!"
"Nine, slow down, your anger is a lil much bro..." Cue stated as Nine glanced at him, and smiled, as he slipped on his mask. Cue searched through the tented window as he saw the Randoms gathering at the corners, and selling dope, running hookers and making street moves to make money. Cue understands Nine a little bit better
"That's why we exist Nine, because there are many crews that go out looking for a reason to kill, but we don't over kill, and we don't pray on the weak." Cue explained as Nine just listened, shaking his head, and driving a little under the speed limit, and looking at everything moving in the street.
"I agree with Nine some what, I don't pray on anyone, but I wanna kill the enemy and all their friends, that's my goal everyday, if that's against the rules then I have to go." He laughed.

Hey there !

 

Just to let you know that our crew is always looking for new recruits.

There are always a ton of stuff going on with 130+ crew members.

Always someone to play with, whether you like racing, DM, freeroam, photography, mini games or other weird shenanigans.

 

There's also a good chance that someone near you is already a member of our crew as you'll find out on the map below :

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Crew Social Media: Social Club - Facebook - Twitter

We'll start the Newsletter this week with a congratulations to Zmurko on becoming the next Crew Member of the Month. Zmurko is a crew Lieutenant and the Website Administrator. The following are a few of the words said about Zmurko from those who nominated him for the honors:

- "For his continued devotion to the crew and the website, his investment in the crew challenge, Photo Scavenger Hunt and many more things. Also, he is always happy, nice, helpful with others."

- "Very helpful to all crew members (un-vetted and senior) using the forum and has done a great job."

- "Always involved, always super helpful and courteous, always there with an answer and advice when needed. A very worthy candidate in my opinion"

Honorable mention to all those nominated - Xyon, SSRacing, G37, and DavidCore.

Congratulations to Casey, she has been promoted to Vetting Lieutenant and has earned every bit of it. I am confident she will prove a valuable asset to the crew in this position as she is a highly respected crew member whom has shown a strong ability to run crew events in an extremely organized fashion

Desuno and the events staff are working towards expansion of the crews racing effort, if you have visited the website lately then you may have noticed 3 new forums under the XDBX Racing category. This is the place where development of the XDBX racing scene will take place. I currently do not know 100% of the details that are being planned, hopefully some more information will be soon coming. Keep an eye on those forums.

Congratulations to all those whom took part in the XDBX vs MOB1 event. XDBX came out with a decisive victory, as well as a huge thank you for those who took part in the XDBX vs FOXU event. Thank you to DavidCore for dealing with the headache of putting the Head 2 Head events together.

The Peacemaker Shooting Range Competition is underway. I would like to see all those involved to please be mindful and aware of the lag that is occurring in this event due to matched not being scheduled in a timely fashion. Current match ups are SSRacing vs Smoggy, Onrefne vs DeaD_Goon, and Rumdig vs Zmurko.

Congratulations to the whole crew! We are ranked 84th (last week was 81th) out of all crews in Non-Contact Racing. Though we have dropped 3 from last week I am certain we can get that back. Another one to keep an eye on an work towards is our rank in Parachuting, we are very close to breaking into the top 1,000.

The Moto GP is underway, I look forward to seeing the results of what is sure to be a very tough motorcycle racing championship.

Where's Danielle? Dani is getting soon underway to her vacation to the United States, she will be off game for a few weeks, let's all wish her safe travels and hope she enjoys her vacation.

I am proud to also say the Ro9M has joined the Newsletter team, look for his influence on the Newsletter over the next few weeks.

A new section added to the Newsletter this week is a list of crew created races that have been GTAForums approved, hopefully some of these races will allow their creator to be R* Verified along with Handcuff_Charlie.

Have you met Cotick and lann3fors?
By JustHatched

Our weekly segment where we met the people behind the controller

XDBX - When and where are you most likely to be found in GTAO?
Cotick - I usually play when all of my family goes to sleep -- they are very distracting -- between 12 and 3 AM CST. I most likely to be found in closed crew session doing missions, gang attacks, and lately I have been doing a little 'snapmatic'...
lann3fors - 10pm gmt, right next to my crewmembers in free roam with a gun in my hand
 
XDBX - What was your first IRL car?
Cotick - 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 - it was 'a tank' -- I loved it!
lann3fors - 92 Ford Probe

XDBX - What was your first IRL job?
Cotick - I dont remember, it was a long time ago -- probably, if I had to guess -- it was 'cash register' type job in a store that doesn't exist anymore...
lann3fors - Behind a desk in a sportsclub

XDBX - If you could add a weapon to GTAO what would it be? Why?
Cotick - Something handheld, but powerful enough to stop a tank and/or a train...
lann3fors - A long distance target seeking missile that could take down any target (tank) from a long distance.

XDBX - What would you like to see in GTA6 that we do not have in GTA5?
Cotick - Ability to create contact missions in the GTA online Creator; Ability to create playlists with contact missions; New continent not too far away from LS -- where you can fly/sail to and from; Boats/Submarines with fire power similar to tanks/buzzards...
lann3fors - More vehicles and more options at the LSC, almost to the point where you could truly create a unique car, along with the ability to do this through RSC (pc). All buildings with complete interiors, and along with free roam sessions with alot more players. And limit the military vehicles to the military (not purchasable), if you want one then steal one and earn your fun.

XDBX - Married? Kids?
Cotick - I am very lucky - I have an incredible wife, whose only flaw is that she is not a gamer; and I have two great kids -- girl and boy, who are in high school...
lann3fors - Yes, four.

XDBX - If you were to have your last meal, what would you order?
Cotick - If the question about 'last meal' has to do with death, I don't think food would be on my mind... If the question has to do with my favorite food -- I would probably say old-fashioned greasy cheeseburger with everything and an order of cheese fries -- which would probably slowly kill me!
lann3fors - Freebirds steak burrito.

XDBX - What was your favorite video game as a kid?
Cotick - Not sure what you mean by that -- I'm still a kid -- never grew up and never will!... In the 80's it was 'Defender' the arcade version, 90's - Tomb Raider 2 on PC, and then there was and still is GTA!...
lann3fors - Metroid on my Nintendo 8-bit.
