Rockstar is getting underway with a Grand Theft Auto Online Social Club Event from today, offering free entry into player-created Jobs created via the Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta, as well as deals on in-game vehicles and upgrades to give you the edge in the game's new Capture Mode. There are 25% discounts on the Adder, Dinka Double-T and Buzzard, alongside 50% off Armor vehicle upgrades.

Furthermore, you could win rare GTA V gear and a bundle of in-game GTA$ in the weekend event's sweepstakes and challenges. Rockstar will be looking at and judging the best created Races and Deathmatches in GTA Online, and Jobs tagged #CreatorWeekend could be considered for a grand prize of GTA$1,000,000. You can enter by heading to the Jobs you've created and editing them with the tag. Or you can make a map from scratch.

There are five top prizes in the Social Club Sweepstakes of GTA V gear, including a rare GTA V Varsity Jacket, and five runner-up prizes of Prize Packs containing GTA V T-shirts, stickers and more. Event Crate Drops also return with more frequent deliveries, containing double the normal ammount of RP, as well as high-powered weapons and a nice wedge of cash. You can read up on the full terms and conditions here and official rules can be found here.

For more details, check out the image below. The Grand Theft Auto Online Social Club Event Weekend is running now until December 22nd.

Extra crate drops huh? That'd be a novelty a I've never seen a single one in all the time I played it. Haven't played it since they massively reduced winnings and nothing so far is tempting me back which is a shame as I had such high hopes for the online

Thought this might be the event to get me interested again. Doesn't seem like it though.

Is there anyway to play player created races without them being on the same map? Would like to just chain a whole bunch of solo 'races' together for the fuck of it, see what others have done.

Shame you can't place checkpoints inside multistory car parks, fucked up my original ideas.
Made a point-to-point track called 'Park It' which chains together a tour of various parking places.
It starts outside a car park and end *inside* a car park, which many game journalists agree is "great satire" and "GTA at its finest."
It's alright.

@1 At launch they crate drops were scarce. I don't know if it was because a bug they fixed or if Rockstar just made them more common, but I see them all the time now. Very few people go after them too, which makes it easy cash and RP.

I wish MS would make armored trucks more common. Those I rarely see and if I do another player is a lot closer than I am.

@1 - Crate drops are worthless. My friend and I got one last night randomly...inside was $2,000 in cash and 200RP.

Not worth it.

@6 It tends to be a crapshoot. Sometimes you get what you described but other times I've gotten $5000, 5000 RP, and an RPG.

@6 True, some times that's the case, I just grabbed one 5 minutes ago, 2500RP and a grenade launcher.

@4 I totally agree with you. Online is shit as it is and levelling up is awfully slow. This is no incentive to get me to continue playing their shitty online.

As number 1 said, after massively reduced winnings and xp it's even less fun to play now. Had high hopes for the online.

It's a shame that people can't just enjoy a game for what it is. GTA is all about messing about and just generally doing things that you can't in real life (or shouldnt haha); stealing cars, blowing shit up, killing peds. But now all people think is "god the xp earned for this sucks" or "why have they cut the amount the amount of money you win".

Just enjoy it, and blame the guys exploiting glitches to make money and generally ruining the game, not R*

@16 I play the game to have fun. But when i can play for a few hours and not level up I dont find it satisfying. If I was a high level it would be fine but when im only level 46 out of 999 I feel like a few hours of play time should mean I rank up

seem like if I was level 1 and played every other day it would take like 2 years to get to level 100. is that what they want from us? And how long until the shut down the servers and when does Microsoft stop supporting the 360... Really do new comers have a real chance at completion? If not what is the point of them dragging this out for casual gamers? just wondering lol.

They really need to increase the payouts for team based gameplay...200 RP & 5000 Cash for 15 minutes of gameplay is not worth it...

I stopped at level 444 when they took away all the efficient ways of ranking up. This does not entice me to come back in the slightest. Doing laps of Criminal Records was fun for me back when it gave decent RP.

Double XP or double cash would have been me exciting. Kind of a weak promo if you ask me!

Yeah too bad no double xp. Is it not possible to blow shit up and level up too? Ok so blame the people for glitching yeah but not blame R* for making it possible for them to do it. I traded my 360 copy in a while back when they failed to fix the online out of frustration and also have ut on ps3 and am seriously thinking about trading it in too.. It's just no fun at all. All i wanna do is get in some decent deathmatches and level up here and there is that too much to ask? Well ok then Rockstar then fuck you too!!

@12: That wasn't what he said, but as usual you showed up to moan about MP, which you always subject yourself to despite hating it consistently across the board.

It's worse than a masochist that moans about his beatings.
