NOTE: We are now for all Consoles!

 

The following was written some time ago, if you want to see how far we have come check out the growing Mercanti Youtube playlist:  http://youtu.be/6dGm...oxI_qOyq-0pFfHH

 

________

 

Hey,

I have really been enjoying my sessions lately, im rank 75 and i mostly play Free-Roam on PS3 and got bored with the casual mayhem after a while. So i have been developing with some friends a realistic way to play our online sessions. We are interacting with civilians and pedestrians.

 

To better illustrate i will give some examples of the play style through some recent activities we did:

Tonight we Whacked a dealer who was operating outside a business we extort. We had a getaway car stolen from an empty car park ready which we later ditched.

 

We took care of our Escort service by driving around going up to our "employees" and walking into them until they reacted, if they ran we chased them down, if they walked it meant we got our money and they were dismissed..

We collected our protection money from the Vespucci beach vendors.. we had to destroy one Burger stall as the owner refused to pay, most walked away (again, meaning they complied with our demands).

 

We bought some "product" from the Families and sold it to the Vagos, One of them pulled a gun when we tried to offer him so we sold it to another guy a bit later.

 

We pulled off a Gang Hit on the Ballas and escaped in our getaway vehicle to the pass under the bridge. Here we doused the car in gasoline and jumped into my Crew vehicle leaving behind a pile of burning evidence. We celebrated the hit at the Club with some Whiskey.

 

We are able to do this with a few self imposed rules such as destroying or ditching a vehicle that the police have seen after a crime, and a list of jobs and events that i created such as, Pimping, Unions, Contracts, Rivals, Protection rackets, drug dealing, murder etc.. Most involve some fairly basic mechanics but are really enjoyable if you want to delve deeper into the realism and role-play.. We play like its a Organized Crime Simulator.

If your interested go to our dedicated Crew Website. Feel free to get intouch with me if this interests you and you want to play some sessions with us this way.

 

I hope you enjoy the content.

 

Regards,

 

Aldo_Mercanti (SocialClub) aka TacticalSpray (PSN)

Today:

 

We wanted to get closer to the Ballas so we came up with a plan. A Family member caused a scene and the police arrived, they got out of their patrol cars and chased after him on foot through a building.. i snuck up and jumped in the patrol car and picked up my Crew mate on the other side.. We went to the clothing store and dressed like police. We drove to Grove st and "questioned" some gangsters before opening fire on them and driving out of there.

 

We stole a Peyote and painted it purple. we dressed like Ballas and we did some drive by's on Families and then the Ballas themselves.. we burned the car afterwards and changed back into regulars.

Four members of our Crew performed a piece of Family Business the other night. Two of them dressed up as Pilots and went to the Airport. There was a Luxor in the hanger and in it a Rival Mobster from Liberty City. The two "Pilots" put some stickies on the Luxor before entering and taking off. They flew towards the desert and then suddenly jumped out, detonating the Luxor and the Rival Mobster as they were free falling. They pulled the parachutes and descended towards the two getaway vehicles that the other two crew members had ready, hidden behind a hill. All four members took a Snapmatic of the Luxor falling out of the sky so the Don could see their work. The two pilots landed, entered the getaway cars and were sped away to safety. The Don rewarded them with Family Points towards Awards, and two members earned a promotion.

This is just one job from many, and the members of this growing Crew are showing themselves to have initiative, respect and teamwork. Enter the world of The Mercanti Family. Start as an Associate and work your way up to become a Mademan. Performing 'Family Business' such as described above is the way to progress. With everything from Pimping to Union Corruption, there is a line of work for you and its all in Online Free-Roam. IF you become a Mademan, you will get to choose a Suburb of Los Santos (E.g. Vespucci Canals or Hawick) to call your own. You would be in charge of 'Family Business' in this suburb. There would be a forum thread that is yours with a photo of your HQ, Map, and a portrait of yourself. You would be able to Access the VIP Lounge (forum) and work on bigger and more important 'Family Business'. To really understand the concept, take a look at our Crew Website and read the forums and see the Galleries, and if its something that interests you feel free to sign up as an Associate. there are no requirements for you to join, you dont even need to join our Crew ingame.. we welcome like minded people to work with on our 'Family Business'. However of course promotion requires Crew Membership however a fulfilling experience can be achieved by participating on the jobs at your own discretion and taking it from there.

http://themercantifa...lanwebsite.com/

We re mostly PS3 however have some keen Xboxers who wanted to join despite the lack of teammates due to liking the concept.

IF you guys actually have a roleplay happening which is currently successful and you don't play at times of the day which I cannot play online (I am English and the last guy trying to invite me was inviting me to play at midnight in his time, which is 5am for me...) I am up for this. I've been waiting ages to try something like this and have never had the chance.

What do I have to do?

Hey, im from ireland myself and we have many other people who play with me at around 7-10pm our time, but there is also people on at all times throughout the day. Sign up at http://themercantifa...lanwebsite.com/ and head over to the forums to find some family business to complete. Once you complete the family business take a picture and post it to snapmatic and the don will see it and award you points to achieve awards in the crew. Im a madman myself and control the area of davis, so if you need any help just send me a message or add me on psn: Glarke

 

Have a look at our social club page http://socialclub.ro...mercanti_family if you look at the snapmatic youll see what sort of stuff we get up to.
