Karin Dilettante night!!!!

You've all seen them, ads, taglines, logos that have two meanings. The hidden meaning is usually sexual or violent and always funny. The logos look normal until you give them a second look. This time the contest will be a little bit different and the rules a bit different as well. Entries will not be limited to two per person, you can submit as many as you want. My hope is this thread will be full of photos of R*'s creative satire. If there are too many entries to fit in one poll I will make a playoff system. I snapped this one yesterday as an example and it will be my first entry.

Keep your eyes open and your camera ready!

Crew Challenge 155 - Grand Theft Loco
This is a single player challenge suggested by Lann. It's quite simple, how long can you survive with a 5* wanted level on a train?

your time starts from when you have a 5* wanted level and are on a moving train

it's up to you whether you get the 5* then get on the train or the other way round

your time ends when you die, no longer have a 5* wanted level or get off the train

you can do anything you want to get the 5* in the first place, but once you are on the train with 5*

you may not eat snacks nor use any new armour

you must not wear anything on your head

just to rule out anything that might give some protection

you may not wear any special gear that gives additional protection

you may not use your phone nor contact NPCs in another way

you can use any hand held weapons

you can use any vehicle you like before getting on the train, but you may not place any vehicles on the train (if that's even possible)

you can do this in any type of lobby but it's a solo event so no getting a freind to help you in anyway

Most of these rules are there to try and reduce the amount of time you can survive for on the train to make this over quicker.

If anyone can think of other things that can be ruled out please say so as soon as possible.

You must save a video of the whole thing and post it here so we can time how long you survived for.

All participants should wear full combat/military outfits. That includes all the special military helmets and hats, any BPH helmet (optional), heavy heist outfits, camo clothing, tactical outfits and accessories in general + anything else that I may have missed here, but fits into that category. (If the majority vote to ditch the BPHs for any specific event before it starts, we can ditch them.)

Every Tuesday at 09:00 pm GMT / 04:00 pm EDT
Join your host MrBump as he puts together a series of jobs that are all about Adversaries. You know, smashing the opposing team to a pulp and humiliating them as much as possible. Expect whatever fun to last around an hour and a half and feature everything from Sumo to Cross the Line to Beast vs Slasher to Hunting Pack and more! Victory will never have felt so good, so sweet and so satisfying as you pummel your opponents!

This event will be limited to 8 players each week so make sure you grab your seat first and you grab it quickly. If interest permits, we can adjust how we work our numbers or even run more jobs that will fit more players.

XDBX League Season 2
Vehicle Class: 2010s Rally Cars
Events: 5 (Sweden, Monte Carlo, Finland, Germany, Wales)

Event 1 - Rally Sweden (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 2nd - 03:00 UTC Mar 8th
Event 2 - Rally Monte Carlo (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 9th - 03:00 UTC Mar 15th
Event 3 - Rally Finland (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 16th - 03:00 UTC Mar 22nd
Event 4 - Rally Germany (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 23rd - 03:00 UTC Mar 29th
Event 5 - Rally Wales (5 stages): 03:00 UTC Mar 30th - 03:00 UTC Apr 5th

Season 2 kicks off this Friday in cars from the 2010s. Compared to last season, we have 1 more event (Monte Carlo) and more stages per event (6 in Sweden, Monte Carlo, Finland and Germany, and 5 in Wales). Another thing you can see is that every event/round lasts for precisely 6 days (up from last season's 3-5 days per event), from 3am UTC every Friday to 3am UTC every Thursday, over the course of 5 weeks, with there being a 24hr cool-down period between events. You can save your progress after each stage in every event, so you could do 1 stage per day or divide them differently over the 6 days or do them all at once if you want.

Available cars: Mini Countryman Rally Edition, Ford Fiesta RS Rally, Volkswagen Polo Rally, Hyundai i20 Rally
I recommend trying at least one of these out in a custom championship first, to get an idea of how they drive and don't forget to try out some setup changes as well, depending on the conditions! ;)
Everyone will be allowed to pick a different car for each event during this season if they wish to do so. (In future seasons with the 2010s rally cars everyone might need to pick 1 car for the entire season instead.)

Monday Motor Mayhem, Mischief, and Merriment (M5)
21:00 UTC (9PM UTC)
A racing and driving focused weekly playlist that is in the evening EU time.
May have the occasional combat or adversary job, but again vehicle focused. 

While it may bear some striking similarities to TNT, and may even feature some of the same events, it most decidedly isn't TNT. It doesn't happen on Thursday.
A chance to enjoy the whole range of vehicles in the game, not just the best 5% of them.

Potato -11

So here it is; the eagerly anticipated golf championship.
It will likely be exactly the same format as the tennis championship depending on interest (group and knockout format). I know that you can have 4 players in a golf match but was thinking it would be better to play 1v1 since it was hard enough trying to organise a 2 player tennis match, so 4 would be an impossibility. This is not set in stone and I am open to ideas if anyone can think of anything better.

• Obviously group sizes would depend on interest, with more interest meaning smaller groups.

• One match per weekend.

• Matches will be the full 9 holes.

• I will post fixtures on here and it would then be up to the 2 players to organise when to play their match (no specific time, only requirement is that it is to be played on the weekend).

• Rules will be published when competitors have been finalised. (These are likely to be very similar to those of the tennis championship.)

If you are interested in taking part, please comment on the thread.

Please Vote for who you think captured the essence of a fellow crewmate best! Your Votes are appreciated!! Thank you!!!

This one was your chance to try on some new clothes, maybe a new hairstyle and literally put your GTA character in someone else's shoes. There is no criteria for how to vote, use your gut instinct because we have some gender switching but that doesn't mean a female can't capture the essence of Dodge (for example). Have a laugh and make your vote.

1. @djw180 as @TheBoyBry


2. djw180 as @Dodge


3. @The_Lady_A as Ally


4. Beez as @Lann


5. Beez as @Danielle


6. @omarcomin71 as @LimeGreenLegend

Challenge Ending Soon!! Get those times in!!!!!
Crew Challenge 154 - SFred
This is a solo challenge, point to point time trial where you need to work out your own route. We've done similar things to this before and it's a bit like a GFred race. But rather than find a car on the roads, you have them provided for you via transform check points. It uses the Sultan and Sultan RS, plus short sections on foot.

The whole race should take around 10 minutes. There's only 8 check points with big distances between most of them. There should be at least 2 different routes that are about the same length between most CPs, it's up to your whether you stick to the roads (traffic is on) or go off-road.

Thanks to Spinnaker and Spud for advice on the planning of this.

This is the track


It was made just for this really, but it is 16 player so feel free to try it with other people, but keep it non-contact if you do

The time of day is up to you. The other settings should be fixed, but in case they are not, please do this as

heavy traffic

bright weather

customs off

you should only be able to select a Rat bike, but it never gets used.


I have added an extra bridge at the end of Raton Canyon and another stunt ramp to give more than one viable route between CPs 5 & 6. But it is entirely up to you if you use those or not. Shown here and here.

CP 6 is shown as a parchute, that's just what a Transform to on-foot CP looks like. If you want to and are able to, by all means use the parachute, but it's not intended to be a parachute jump, not really high enough.

Crew Challenge 153 – Short Sports 
This is a two player team time trial in customs sports cars on a short street track Hood Rush

Each teammate needs to record their fastest lap in two different models of car, and they must both be different to the two your teammate uses. So overall your team will be submitting times for four different cars. It's only a 0.67 mile track so getting times done in different cars should not take long and I think we all have a few different reasonably competitive sports cars.  

For this challenge 

Massacro and Massacro Race car are the same.  

Jester and Jester Race car are the same. 

Any other's people can think of that are basically the same car? 


We'll do the usual set up for team selection. Sign up now, teams will be semi-randomly drawn later. Recent winning pairs will be excluded (Banks & Spud CC 151, DC & Spud CC148, Proto & Lann CC 145).  

If you only have a couple of different decent sports cars please say so when you sign up so if needs be the draw can make sure you get teamed up with someone who has more cars to choose from. 

Just guessing, not having tested all these, I'd assume any combination of these could be viable, Ellegy, Ellegy Retro, Massacro(RC), Jester(RC), Feltzer, Seven-70, Pariah, Neon and probably a couple more. 

Make as many attempts as you like, do as many laps in once rae as you like. Must be non-contact if racing with others, any weather, any time of day. No run ups (I don't think run ups are possible on this anyway). 


Starts now 

Ends 19:00 BST (18:00 UTC) 7th May.

CONTEST OVER. Please Submit your entries.
Thread will be closing in 24 hours.
XDBX Doppleganger Photo Contest
This time the theme is to impersonate another crew member and take a selfie or use the editor. Lots of us have a go-to look or outfit and you can probably find example on their Social Club gallery or just pay attention the next time you play with them.  This is also a good chance you use your 2nd character if it's a different gender than your main character.

Standard rules, you can submit 2 photos to this thread and change them at anytime until I close it to entries. I will give warning here and shoutbox before I do that. Then I'll make a poll and open it for a voting period.

We've done this before but not for a photo contest per se. In the past it's been done in playlists. Also don't feel you must copy someone's look exactly, be creative for example, one time I dressed up as @Dodge but in white instead of black and dubbed myself "Good Dodge."
See some examples below.

CHALLENGE OVER. Please post your times and videos!!! Thank you!!
Crew Challenge 152 - 8-Ball

A solo time trial with a twist, on Squirrel's Pool-themed stunt race 8-Ball. Do your fastest 1-lap race in a custom sports car, but you must pot all the balls. Save a video that clearly shows all balls have been potted, i.e. let us see the empty table. You pot the balls by forcing them into the pockets anyway you like and in any order.

This has to be done solo, other settings are up to you.

Make as many attempts as you like.

Time for a 1-lap race, not the fastest lap of many.

Challenge over (no more racing). Please post your final times as soon as possible and within 48 hours.

Crew Challenge 151 – Slippery When Wet

This challenge is a 2 player team time trial in the rain using custom coupes.
The track is Ally's Vespucci Street Circuit (Wet)  
This is a version specifically made with rain on, due to the way weather works for stunt races. So make sure you use this one as the original is dry weather only.   

 Each teammate must use a different model of car. Many coupes come in 2 variants that don't necessarily have different performance, so  for this challenge 

Zion and Zion Cabrio are the same model 
Windsor and Windsor Drop are the same model 
But all other variants of similarly named cars are counted as different models, i.e. Felons, Oracles and Sentinels. 

You and your teammate can decide who uses which car at any point, you don’t have to declare that until the final results. 
Sign up now and random teams will be drawn later with recent winning pairs excluded (DC & Spud CC 148, Proto & Lann CC145, Ally & Lann CC 143).   
Do as many laps as you like (or R* will allow) and make as many attempts as you want. If racing with others it must be non-contact. Weather should be locked to rain. Any time of day.
