Vote for your favorite XDBX celebrity impersonator
Time to vote everyone and thanks to all who entered. You all did a great job making your characters look like their subjects and maybe this theme should have been done sooner because there are a lot of famous people and classic movie/tv scenes that could be recreated. I'm surprised @omarcomin71 didn't do Omar from The Wire. 😯 GTA photo contests will not end but they will happen less often, like maybe the next one will be when it snows again in Los Santos or we get another update.

1. Tom Hanks, Saving Private Ryan


2. John Milner (Paul LeMat), American Graffiti


3. John Shaft (Richard Roundtree) , Shaft


4. Earl, My Name is Earl

Halloween in GTA
GTA Halloween Event in the Whacked Out Wednesdays time slot.
A mixed playlist of jobs linked to Halloween or a Horror theme.
Dress code is Halloween / Horror fancy dress.

Celebrity Lookalike Photo Contest
FINAL DAY TO SUBMIT!!! Get those shots submitted!!!
This time the theme of the photo contest is to look like someone famous and is partnering with an upcoming Two Brothers Playlist which will be all TV and movie themed jobs. Your famous person can be pretty much anyone who is well known to most humans, for example musicians, actors, politicians, athletes, characters from TV, movies or games, dead or alive. (not crew members, we already did that) Use environment, filters and vehicles to set the scene. Photos can be captured in the Editor or the standard snapmatic. Here's a weak example from a music themed playlist I hosted a long time ago. (I have nearly every photo I/ve ever taken.)

I am supposed to be Eddie Vedder in front of the Whisky-A-Go-Go. 😜
As usual you may submit 2 photos for the contest and you can change them any time by editing your post and replacing them with different ones. Once the contest ends and the thread is locked those will be your entries. Entries close at the end of the month. If you would like to show us some of your photos that didn't make the cut as an entry, we'd love to see them but please put them in spoiler tags.

When the movie/TV themed 2Bros playlist happens please come as one of your famous characters. @pete_95973 @omarcomin71

DiRT Rally (& the XDBX League)
XDBX League Season 5
Vehicle Class: R4
Events: 4 (Monte Carlo, Sweden, Germany, Wales)

Event 1 - Rally Monte Carlo (6 stages): 19:00 UTC Sep 8th - 03:00 UTC Sep 17thEvent 2 - Rally Sweden (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Sep 18th - 03:00 UTC Sep 24th
Event 3 - Rally Germany (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Sep 25th - 03:00 UTC Oct 1st
Event 4 - Rally Wales (6 stages): 03:00 UTC Oct 2nd - 03:00 UTC Oct 8th

Season 5 has begun! It's time for the R4 class: Subaru Impreza WRX STI 2011 & Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X are the cars to choose from.

As previous seasons, every event/round lasts for precisely 6 days (except the 1st event), this time from 3am UTC every Tuesday to 3am UTC every Monday, over the course of about 4 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, etc, etc.

Like last season, I will share my tested and refined car setups for every event, however it might be for only one of the cars in the class, depending on which I'll be using for any specific event.

New members can join the league at the link below the title of this post, but make sure you log in using your PSN Account or RaceNet account first and set your platform at the top right of the page to PlayStation 4 (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) before going to the "Leagues" page! You can also search for "XDBX Casual" league and then join that way.

Crew Challenge 162 - Two Times Bounty Challenge
Two Times Bounty Challenge
This is a two player, team challenge.  You and your partner start in a public lobby and place a bounty on each other.  Then you begin attacking other players and the team that gets the most kills of other players while still having a bounty on them wins.  A kill will only count as a point if you have the bounty on you.  So if one of the team members dies they can still assist and protect the teammate but only kills collected by the player with the remaining bounty counts.  The challenge ends when the time is up for the bounties (48 mins) or both players are killed and lose the bounty.


-Each team member can kill a player one time.  So the team can score two points per random.  Once each team member kills a player once you move on to other players to get more points.

-Killing another player with a bounty counts as three points.  But you and your teammate (or friends/crew in the lobby) cannot place the bounty on them

-You can change lobbies at any time.

-You may not use weaponized vehicles, air craft, flying cars or bikes, MOCs, or armored vehicles.  You can use personal vehicles if they are not armed, armored, or aircraft.  But once the challenge starts you cannot call for you vehicle to be delivered to you in any way.  So if you get separated from your vehicle you need to make your way back to it on foot or steal an NPC vehicle to get back to it.  If you personal vehicle is destroyed you are out of luck.  It is a good idea for you to each have your PV with you when you put the bounties on each other.

-You may not call NPCs, be a CEO, VIP, or MC (so no ghost or off radar) If you need snacks you need to go the liquor store and steal or buy them.  If you need body armor or ammo you need to go to ammunation to buy them, do not use the interaction menu (this is considered calling NPCs)

-You may not go inside of any properties that randoms cannot get inside to kill you.

-You can use Easy Way Out or Suicide to avoid being killed

-Tie breaker if there is a tie on points goes to the team that survived longer (time ends when the second bounty is claimed)

-Save the video (would be max of 48 mins so make sure your settings are ready)

-Please also make a list of the names of the randoms you kill and post that here, that makes it much easier for whoever checks those.

-You can organise your own teammates for this one as you need to be in-game at the same time. You can post here saying you want a teammate and / or look for who else has posted.


A big thanks to @pete_95973 for organising this one and who will also be taking any queries about the rules. (As most of you probably know I am moving house this week so don't know how much I'll be around)

Crew Challenge 161 - Tank Slalom
Set your fastest time for a one lap race, not fastest lap. It's quite a long lap.

This must be done non-contact if racing with others, and just incase anyone thought about getting out and running for some of it, GTA mode is not allowed.

Any weather, any time of day, make as many attempts as you like. It doesn't matter whether you have customs on or off and it doesn't matter what vehicle you select, you won't use it once the race starts.
