Introducing Crew Hierarchies

The first of many Rockstar Games Social Club features we'll be introducing for Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online is the all-new Hierarchies system for Social Club Crews - borne directly out of feedback from the Social Club community. Available for all Crew Leaders right now at the Social Club website, the Hierarchies feature allows the Leader of the Crew to assign special ranks to members, designating the responsibilities of Crew management and assuring that loyalty and performance are rewarded appropriately. Crew Leaders can assign special rank to any and all members (Crew members will otherwise all be defaulted to the designation of Muscle) across the following four tiers: 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. Beyond the overall Crew cap, there is no limit on how many Crew members you can designate to any one tier - so decide whether your squad will be a communal and anarchic free-for-all or a rigidly structured and exclusive Hierarchy designed to reward the chosen few and keep the Muscle thirsty for recognition? To see your Crew’s Hierarchy, select Hierarchy from the navigation options directly below the active Crew Emblem on your Crew’s profile page. If you are a Commissioner or Leader and want to organize your Crew, head to the Crew Management page and click Hierarchy. Here you'll see the full chain of command for that Crew, from the upper echelons in charge of managing operations to the ground force responsible for getting the job done - along with a detailed breakdown on your Crew, with options to promote and demote members via the up and down arrows and more detailed information hover boxes that explain exactly what each rank can and can't do. On this page you may notice a colored bar under each Crew tag, which decreases in length as you get further down the Crew structure. This bar is visible across Social Club and will be visible in-game in Grand Theft Auto Online as a public symbol of your rank inside the Crew. The color of the bar is determined by another new feature of Social Club: Crew Colors. These can be set in the Crew management pages, and will have significant prominence in other places yet to be announced. Social Club members may also notice a few new design updates today as well to user profiles and other pages on the network - as always, if you have feedback you'd like to bend our ear on regarding these or other features or improvements that you would like to see around Social Club, please get in touch with us via Mouthoff where we're always happy to have a look at what you have to say. We'd also like to remind all Crew members to make sure your contact email information is up to date in your Social Club account settings and also encourage you to link your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts to your Social Club profile so that you can receive notifications on Crew invites and messages. Make no mistake, respect is still everything and getting your Crew ranks organized early can make all the difference for how you stand out in a crowd, whether you're going toe to-toe with other Crews or planning to just wreak havoc under your Crew banner with a few friends in Los Santos and Blaine County this fall. Stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for lots more updates about Social Club features to be announced for GTAV and GTA Online soon.
