Can we all calm down when it comes to the racing? People get so heated if they get bumped even once and we all know there is a big difference between the accidental bump and grind that goes with any race and someone purposefully knocking you off the road. We're all becoming friends so maybe act like it and let it slide. I have to respectfully give my two cents on the new additions to the code of conduct concerning racing. Racing for $$ is all well and good but no one should be just letting anyone win regardless of their level. As for custom cars, we should again be using them whether against a level 1 or 100. If someone doesn't have a modded out super car and gets beat by one then they suck it up and save for a super car of their own. I'm almost level 90 I have no super car but I certainly don't expect those that saved to get one to leave it in the garage nor do I bitch when beaten. We're the old guys. We don't whine when we get beaten and we give no quarter to our opponents. And as for not blowing up people in gta races... Well thats just silly. If you don't want to possibly get exploded and there are only two of you then pick a standard race. If you're doing the gta race for the rp then realize you gotta earn those points and that comes with the possibility of getting blown up. Just my two cents.
I agree, particularly when you can set up a race which doesn't allow custom cars. If custom cars are on, I expect people to bring them. I only have a bike that's customized for racing, and a sports and coupe that are customized for missions, and if the custom option is on, well, that's why I spent the money on those vehicles. And, yeah, GTA races are GTA races.
The one thing that would be nice is if you could customize the join random race option - I'd like to be able to say "find me a motorbike race with customs on and traffic off" or "find me a coupe race". Given that upgrades unlock based on how much you race in a class of car, I think it should be easier to get into races of that class. I realize I can simply host, and typically I do, but man, sometimes it is hard to get a lobby of more than two or three guys going. Everyone wants to race supers.
And yeah, I agree about accidental bumping. I'm always waiting for that revenge PIT maneuver after I've accidentally collided with someone. It's not always avoidable, folks. Though I should say I've never had anyone in the crew do that to me.

I'm now rank 76 myself, and I can't say I've raced much past rank 20. I mainly raced to get certain mod unlocks... not a fan of GTA Racing myself, prefer missions and freeroam But I agree, GTA is a game where you should expect it to represent real life, hey-yo!
The Evil Dragon: Started a new online character to dump money, before finishing the intro missions someone gifted me a billion dollars. Thought it was a hundred million, social club says I have 1.1 Billion. Should have stuck with the 100 million I had left before.

The Evil Dragon: P.S. Deleting a character full of cash dumps money back into your account, it does NOT get rid of it. I know, first world problems. I just don't want my account blocked from online.Maybe I can fill a garage full of modded Adders and ram tank grievers?

The Evil Dragon: I e-mailed Rockstar earlier, waiting for an answer.

bigred19d: Rockstar is going to attempt a purge on modded money... They are not going to take guns, vehicles or housing away. Just gifted money. I used my 2nd character slot and bought an apartment and filled it with non modded adders, that's 6 million in cash.

The Evil Dragon: great minds think alike. I did the same, but got the Obey Tailgater from the first race and actually managed to keep it !!! So I have 9 Adders and a tailgator in a ten car garage on a level 6 character.

bigred19d: O.K. gang we have decided to put together a crew created playlist. Get to creating!!!! We as a crew will vote on submitted creations. Once we have a tight playlist involving most types of vehicles and a few WELL DONE death matches.
Jan 10, 2014 12:16:07 GMT -4
bigred19d: This list will be ever evolving and will be updated with improved created races. This is not mandatory at all but it would be nice if we could get as many members involved as possible.

mrharrybergeron: Hey Red, maybe let's start voting next weekend. That'll give people time to explore some TOGS created stuff this weekend and this week. Let's have a official place where people can vote on their favorites. A Google Doc will work fine.
Jan 10, 2014 14:36:25 GMT -4
mrharrybergeron: Or, actually, maybe people should just create a playlist called/tagged "favorite togs". Choose from your favorites first, etc. Members can always go back and change it up in-game.
Jan 10, 2014 14:38:27 GMT -4
mrharrybergeron: Also, do we have an official 'tag' for crew-made content? Is it #theoldguys, #oldguys, or should we just make it #togs? I know some of you would have to go back through your stuff and add tags, but it'd be easier to let crew know to tag stuff with #togs

angryniceguy: so far #theoldguys is the standard, been using it to tag photos. Also, good idea on this playlist, great way to support each other creations.

canuck613: Was there a recent purge of the membership list? My friend (PrezHotNuts) and I (Canuck613 in game) were no longer in the crew as of yesterday. We both sent requests back to be reinstated, just curious if there was a glitch on the R* end or not.
Jan 15, 2014 11:14:04 GMT -4
canuck613: And I'm back. Thanks folks, disregard my previous message. Glad to see we're keeping the 300 spots for active members, thanks to those who are managing the crew day-to-day. Makes it fun for those of us who have less time than they'd like to play!

Bocephusbear: So I'm in a race lobby with a bunch of randos. We choose our cars then get to the screen for betting and choosing our winning action. I start looking around the group and see that Kaiser soze is standing next to me. I of course start yelling "KAISER SOZE!
Jan 18, 2014 23:20:39 GMT -4
Bocephusbear: KAISER SOZE!" Then as I'm quoting the bit "and just like that *poof* he's gone" he fucking disappears and no one in the lobby saw it but me. Made my night.
Jan 18, 2014 23:22:54 GMT -4
canuck613: Haha, man, I hope that's all this guy does with that username. As soon as he's recognized, poof, logoff.
