No Skill Required

XDBX is an Equal Opportunity Crew. We have no requirements for skills!! We believe through our events your skill level will increase, and if they don't we don't care. As long as you have a postitive attitude we want you with us.

Battery Upon Others

While we do not seek the most skilled players, what we do work on is team work. Our efforts toward planning specific strategies before battling others crews has lead us to over 100+ victories in Head to Head battles.

Amazing Diversity

Here at Domestic Battery everyone is treated equally regardless of your sex, country, religion, etc... We believe our "assortment" of members brings out some of our finest and most comical moments.
Crew Policy and Guidelines
  • Welcome to Domestic Battery Gaming (XDBX)

    Formed in 2014 for Grand Theft Auto Online, XDBX quickly grew to be one of the dominant crews of GTAO winning 110 battles against other crews and is in the top 50 in racing and deathmatches among thousands of crews . Now with the release of Red Dead Online we are shifting focus to that game as Rockstar Games releases new content for it and maintaining our GTAO presence.

    Our proven vetting process ensures we get the best player attitudes in our crew, perhaps some are not the best players but are always fun to play with. Skill level in our crew is superficial, regardless of skill we are looking to have fun.

    Our Events Team and our members work to host multiple events per week in GTAO and RDRO so that there is always something for everyone to do in multiple timezones.

    To join our website simply visit the Registration Page. If you wish to feel us out a little bit to find out what XDBX is all about feel free to read the many topics on our Discussion Forum or any other area of our website.

    This website is more than the hub for Domestic Battery, it is the focal point for the well known organization of XDBX, it is where we have become family while not playing our PS4's.

    • RDR 1st Poker Championship
      XDBX POKER CHAMPIONSHIP IS HERE!!!!!

      In Red Dead Online we will host private poker games.  Lime will host a table of 4-6 players and I will host a table of 4-6 players (we could have three tables if there is enough interest).  Each table everyone starts with $5.00 as the game allows and then there is one hour of game play.  The top 2 or 3 winners from that table during that hour will move on to the final table to be played that day or possibly the following week.  At the final table the remaining players play for one hour and the player with the most chips at the end is crowned the 1st Red Dead Poker Champion.

      This thread is to check interest and to take feedback on availability and time.  I was thinking possibly a Saturday or Sunday in early June.  We could do it before Two Bros or SRL or another time that works well.  Give us your thoughts and if there is interest we will make this happen.

    • XDBX Summer Triathlon 2019
      Triathlon Registration Now Open!!! Wooooo!
      Amount of Players Allowed: 30
       Special Rules for Event: sports attire, follow the rules, please don't bring the police
      Description of Event: remember this?















      I'd quite like to do it again sometime soon, maybe with some of the guys from Vans, @JuniorChubb and the other crews on RSC, don't know who to tag in for that though.

      The events will be the same as the ones above, and I'll be capturing editor footage to determine the scoring, and making awesome videos.  It should take about an hour, maybe more depending on turnout.  I'd like to follow it up with a short playlist of stupid, sports related jobs.

    • Crew Challenge 185 - Scouring Your Hotring
      Crew Challenge 185 – Scouring Your Hotring 

       

      For this solo time trial we return to an old favourite, Dodge’s Scouring the Projects. But this time you don’t get to choose what car you use. It has to be done in a Hotring Sabre and as we all seem to have one, customs are allowed. As before on this challenge this is a single lap race; it’s not really one for hot lapping. 

      Thanks / blame goes to everyone involved in suggesting / inspiring this. @Crawford1872 @The_Lady_A @Spinnaker1981 @Schumi6581 I think were the lead culprits, along with me. Someone suggested another scouring at an M5 a while ago. Someone else, I think it was me, but the memory is a bit fuzzy, said in jest “how about we use the Hotring?” and others seemed to like the idea. @Pb76 also suggested another scouring, but he had no part in the choice of car. And, of course, a big thanks to @Dodge for updating the track to accommodate those of us who wish to lure randoms into having a go in the right car. Maybe we could offer a special award to whoever can get the most randoms to complete the race. 

       

      Please use this version of the track Hotring the Projects, locked to Hotring, with customs allowed.

      Any weather (should not be changeable anyway) 


      Any time of day  


      Do a 1 lap race 


      Make as many attempts as you like  


      Non-contact if you race with others  



      Starts now  

      Ends 19:00 BST (18:00 UTC) 28th May  

      All times to please be posted by 19:00 30th May.

    • Why Slippery Bastard should be removed
      All 4 previous rounds had been won with the exact same margin by the team starting east of the river, so I thought I'd try out Slippery Bastard for once and break the deadlock. Too easy. Hate that card but at least it gave me my first MVP in Overrun.

    • The Crimson Rivers [XDBX Film Club 04]
      Join our Film Club by watching the winning selection from the French Films genre, The Crimson Rivers!!!

      On the 22nd of March 1895, at the "Society for the Development of the National Industry" in Paris, 200 people witnessed the very first projected motion pictures in history.  This makes France the most important country in film history.  Thanks to pioneers like The Lumiere Brothers, Georges Melies, and The Pathe Brothers we are able to see things on the big screen that we could never possibly dream of.  

      France didn't just invent cinema, they also gave us cinemas, and, with the publication of Cahiers du Cinema in 1951, gave us the birth of modern film theory and criticism.  The writers at this magazine knew their stuff.  Two of them went on to lead the French new wave in the 60s, arguably the most influential period in film history, Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut.  

      So it's only right that we celebrate this great nation by watching the fruit of its loins.  The winning film was selected by @Spinnaker1981, The Crimson Rivers, or, Les Rivieres Pourpres.


      The Crimson Rivers is a psychological thriller starring Jean Reno and Vincent Cassel, directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, and adapted from from the novel of the same name by the author, Jean-Christophe Grange.  I've not seen this film, so I can't really say much else, but I am looking forward to watching it being a fan of both the leads.

      Vive la France

    Effects of Eating (Overweight vs Underweight) and proper clothing (Stats)

    Note that the  rates were got with using the correct clothing for the temperature. 
    I started as underweight and ate 1 Prime Beef waited 5 minutes and switched lobby and repeat to gain weight. Weight is gained and lost in .75% increments.
    Underweight gives you from -7.5% to -5.25% Stamina Drain Rate and +7.5% to +5.25% Damage Absorption depending on how underweight you are (7.5% being a the lowest weight). Also gives you a 125% Core Drain Rate.
    Average (leaning to underweight side)  gives you -4.5% to  -.75% Stamina Drain Rate and +4.5% to +.75% Damage Absorption depending on how close to underweight you are. Also gives you a 100% Core Drain Rate.
    Perfect gives you a 0% Stamina Drain Rate and 0% Damage Absorption. Also gives you an 85% Core Drain Rate.
    Average (leaning to the overweight side) gives you a +.75%  to +4.5% Stamina Drain Rate and -.75% to  -4.5% Damage Absorption depending on how close to overweight you are. Also give you a 100% Core Drain Rate.
    Overweight gives you a +5.25% to +7.5% Stamina Drain Rate and -5.25% to -7.5% Damage Absorption depending on how overweight you are (7.5% being at maximum weight). Also gives you a 125% Core Drain Rate.
     
    Clothing 
    If you are wearing the correct clothing (Fair temperature for your toon) you get a All Cores Drain Rate of 0%. If your toon is Hot or Cold you will get a All Cores Drain Rate of +900%
