  2. We were just trying to ride the train before the Weekend WrapUp playlist when this random decided to ruin our fun and mess with us. Good lord almighty, he had to pay. 
  3. 2325 race wins. 18,202 kills. Rank 981. Character retirement (for real). Really hoped to hit rank 1k before finishing but it is what it is.

    gta Crew Challenge 203 - Pulling a Faswan

    No problem man. Haven't tried a lot, only at the start of the challenge. 53.3 I think. Also, I only have a Krieger as a competitive super. So can you try others? I'll put in some extra laps too...

    XDBX Weekend Wrapup

    I’m a yes right now. I’m going out to brunch with a friend 90 mins before this starts. 50-50 I will be online at starting time. I think 30 mins late would be the latest I’ll be there.

    Maybe an Overtime Rumble? They’re double money right now.
  9. Crew Challenge 204 - XDBX vs the Rest of the World No GIFs available? This is our 6th anniversary challenge. There's a few rules to set out, but the idea is just to play GTA and, if we have enough, RDR, online against randoms in various events. It's about who can get the best performance beating a reasonable number of randoms by the biggest margin. Starts tomorrow but posting now to start getting it publicised. There will be at least 2 different events in which to compete, how many depends on number of teams and what people want to do. All the performances entered for each event will be ranked, best performance gets the team15 points, 2nd best 12, 3rd, best 10, rest 9,8,7 etc, If we have more than 12 performances in an event I'll start using fractions of points (1/2, 1/3, 1/4 etc) for the other positions. It's a team challenge and each team has to enter 4 performances. Teams can be 2 to 4 players. Each team member must enter at least one performance but you can can enter 2 or 3. Performances can be in any event, so a team could enter them all in the same event. But just bear in mind the potential for points; if only one teams does a particular event then they get maximum points in that event no mater how well they did. So whilst you can have a team where everyone enters the same event if you want to, it will be better to have the team as a whole enter performances across multiple events. The events The first two of these we will definitely have GTA-online race GTA-online DM or TDM RDR2-online race If we have enough people wanting to do this. I think we need at least 3 all in different teams GTA-online parachuting If we have at least 4 teams & enough people who want to do this (min 3 again) Other events can be considered if we have enough teams or need to replace the RDR2-race. I'm open to suggestions but they need to be something enough of us can do, and have a way to easily say which performance is 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc and have a clear results screen to take a screenshot of to show how well you did. Rules Races can be non-contact or standard. Slip stream and catchup allowed. I'd also ask that racing be clean please, certainly if you happen to be racing with a teammate you must not race dirty to help the teammate beat randoms and / or increase their winning margin. Events must be in Rockstar or Rockstar verified jobs of the appropriate type In races the winner's time must be under 8 minutes so we can't get a really big winning margin just by setting something to loads of laps DMs / TDMs must be 10 minutes or less There must be at least 7 non-XDBX opponents players on the results screen, which you must take a screen shot of, for performance to count maybe lower this for parachuting if included so if there's 7 to start with but some drop out it won't count. TDM that means at least 7 on the other team Your performance is your margin over the closest random behind you in the final result time gap in races, kills difference in DM, points gap in parachuting in DMs or TDMs I'm going to say forced or forced and pickups but we'll see how it goes, we may have to allow owned weapons. DMs will be easiest to use, TDMs can count using you total kills minus the best from the other team as your performance Ranking the performances Firstly we will rank the performances in the same event by placings, so a race/DM win (MVP in TDM) will always beat a 2nd place, and a 2nd will always beat a 3rd etc, etc Next it will be the margins I'm hoping we all win the performances we submit, so the margins will actually be the main thing to rank them on, but in-case you don't get wins other placed finishes can be used they just won't count as highly as a win does. So please sign up now AND say what events you would like to do. I'm assuming we'll have enough willing to do GTA races and DMs, but other events may not have enough to make them work. Teams can be arranged later and if possible I'd like to do the same sort of national / regions teams we usually do for the anniversary challenge. Starts Monday 27th Jan 19:00 UTC Ends - TBC, see how long it takes to get teams set up, then run for a period that covers 2 weekends.

    What was the most recent thing you bought?

    Standard Cab and White is the best in looks you could have in regards of selling factor. The manual V6 would´ve been more desirable than the 2.2 I4 Auto, but, in the US, that is not so important, because you can always upgrade it (unlike here, where changing the engine size is prohibited)! I think you made a good buy. 71.000km is not a lot for a 20 year old car! Lets have some pictures!

    XDBX Weekend Wrapup

    I've RSVPd as attending because the "maybe" option isnt available. I'm a 50/50 but am hoping to join, even if I'm late. If I join, there's a good chance that @Olla will join as well. Edit: After a few drinks to celebrate Australia Day, I may sleep through the event. I'll still do my best to be there
  15. Spinnaker1981

    What was the most recent thing you bought?

    2.2 or 4.3? Manual or Auto? Double cabin or single? What color? That is a cool car anyway, but, given the right answers above, might become quite valuable in the near future...

    Looking for people to help sell

    @Twistedsoldier49 you can also advertise in the shoutbox when you need help or want to get some activity going. Lots of folks around the globe here would help. It helps if you can mention it 30 minutes or so before you plan to start.

    It's the Oscars next month, and like last year we will be choosing a winner of the big golden baldie for our film. However, instead of best picture winners, which we did last year, we will be doing one of the following, which will be randomly drawn by @Con on Monday, if he has time: director actor actress screenplay (original or adapted) cinematography

    Queen & Slim dir. Melina Matsoukas Queen & Slim is the debut film from music video and advertisement director Melina Matsoukas, and she has come out swinging! Starring two British actors doing impeccable American accents, Jodie Turner-Smith with a strong film debut of her own, and Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther) Queen & Slim is a dramatic road movie about two strangers on a first date who have to go on the run after killing a cop in self defense. I loved this film, Matsoukas has a real eye for cinema, and she directs with the confidence of a 30 year veteran. This has been compared to Bonnie & Clyde, but this is more like a Greek tragedy where you're just waiting for the consequences of their actions to catch up to them. The script is beautifully paced, giving us time to care about these characters and learn about them without having it spoonfed to us. Kaluuya plays Slim as a goodhearted, quiet soul who gains confidence as the film goes on, and Turner-Smith shows both great strength and incredible fragility as a lawyer caught on the wrong side of the law. This is a very powerful, moving film, at times fraught with unbearable tension, other times bursting with quiet tenderness, and always with a strong social conscience. This is especially seen in how the character Junior and his father both see Queen & Slim, and what that leads to (in one of the most moving scenes of the film, cutting between a love scene and Junior at a protest). Even as a white Englishman I was deeply moved by this film, and feel like in years to come will be seen as an important movie. You should definitely check this out, not just for the message, but because it's also a damn good film 9/10
