Time for your daily dose of vitamin GTA, the leading cause of “is it here yet” syndrome in the world! Rockstar is changing up its Social Club platform just before the game releases next month, towards something that will be tailored towards GTA Online. Here’s a look at what’s going to be happening.
Over on the Rockstar Newswire, the developer has confirmed that Hierarchies are being introduced to the Social Club, which allow the leader of a crew to assign one of several ranks to their members that come with various responsibilities and rewards. Those ranks are:
- Commissioners: The Crew’s most trusted member(s) – that essential right-hand man or woman that the Leader relies on for Vice Presidential advisement and executive action. Commissioners have the power to manage and administrate all aspects of the Crew on behalf of the Leader, including the ability to promote members internally or invite new members in.
- Lieutenants: Made members with specific privileges to keep the Crew in check and hand out promotions or demotions amongst sub-ordinate ranks. Crew Representatives and the mob of Muscle would be wise to keep their Lieutenants (and above) sweet.
- Representatives: A tier of Crew members who have shown and proved their commitment to the clique – whether with ace performance in competitive modes, or just by rocking their Crew’s emblem faithfully since day one. Crew Leaders can assign these special players as Representatives who will have basic permissions to aid recruitment efforts.
- Muscle: The rank-and-file mob of Crew members who are happy to play their position of causing some havoc Online, doing their Crew’s emblem justice and fighting for its good name. Muscle-level members may not have nor want any administrative power but they’re often the heart and soul of what makes your Crew fearsome. Ambitious Muscle who are looking to prove themselves to the Crew Leader and rise up the ranks may even prove a threat to their Crew superiors, if any are deemed to be slacking on their responsibilities or performance.
Anyone who joins your crew is going to by default be a Muscle member, and there’s no limit to how many people can join your Wes’ side massive, aight.
I asked Gavin what role he was going to give me in the Lazygamer massive, but he says he’s still waiting for Rockstar to add a scapegoat-monkey clown option to the Hierarchy.
