Fellow GB heisters assemble!

Hello fellow duders,

I, like I'm sure many others, have been greatly enjoying GB East's Crime Crew series. It got in the mood to jump back in to GTA Online, when I remembered I never did complete all the online heists, in fact I am at the same spot they are in in the most recent episode, having just completed the prison break.

So! I have the next few days off, and was wondering if anyone else would like to jump back in to do all the heists with me. We don't have to do them all at once, but it would be a whole lot of fun to get them started. :)

I'm on PC, Social Club name Keirgo in the US EST timezone (GMT -5). I normally work nights so I tend to be up during the night as well on my days off.

Happy thieving!

Sure, I’m game, we’ve got @Jarp on PC as well so all we need is one more and we are enough to do all the heists :)

For people that have jumped back in - does your progress carry over across versions of the game? As in I had played a heck of a lot of this game on X360 back in the day, even did a lot of the online. If I were to purchase it now for like PC or XB1 ..will Social Club remember my level in online and such?

I looked into this as I had played mostly on PS4 way back when and it looks like they closed the character transfers in 2017(?).

Starting over wasn't a big deal considering I hadn't played in four years.

I've got Monday and Tuesday off this week and @thechris and I have already done Fleeca so next job Prison break needs four. Let's do dis!

I'm in California (PST), lemme know when. Discord name is Jarpasaurus.

Excellent to see people are interested, anyone who wants can go ahead and send me a friends request on Rockstar social club, same name as on here, and on Discord I am Keirgo#1417.

I haven't used discord in a while, do we have an active GB discord we could all meet up in? I'm still in the GB destiny discord from back when 2 came out on PC.

I'm also going to be around all night tonight if anyone is around. :)

@jarp12: oh that’s a bummer. I had accumulated quite a lot of stuff but most importantly had advanced all the missions to their conclusions waiting for the heists to get put in - having to do them all over again seems like a bit of a time sink, not to mention getting the big condo with the safe room etc.

@humanity: You can get the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack for only $10, it gets you a bunch of "Free" stuff to get you started along with enough money to buy one of the luxury apartments needed to start the heists, the only other requirement is that you are at least level 12.

I think this is what the GB East crew did to get ready for the Crime Crew series.

@humanity: If nothing else, I can just give you the money necessary to buy an apartment for the heists.

Not sure if the game is still on sale, I think I spent like $25 for the game and the criminal enterprise pack. Comes with a million cash, apartments, bunker, 10 vehicles. Well worth it.

@thurbleton: Great! Can probably get @jarp12 to join too then we need one more and we can do the Prison Break stuff, unless you need to do Fleeca first?

Would love to join you guys but I have to work the next few nights. Starting Saturday I'll have a few days off though.

I will not need to do the fleeca job! This should be me on Rockstar social. As this is PC would we want to do voice on the unofficial giant bomb discord?

@thurbleton: Probably yeah, but I don’t have a mic sadly. I guess I can voice chat through an IPad on Discord if nothing else.

I'll send you a mic! :)

Ipad discord app should work.

I do think voice will be essential for the later heists at this point.

I am in California, going to movies at 4pm will be home this evening. Will check in on Discord or here. We should get a central spot to communicate. not used to using GB site for that. :)

@thechris even if you don't have a mic still being in a channel with 3 others who do does help aid communication. I've played online stuff before with that scenario and its worked out okay in the end. So long as people are open to improving communication; heck I'm cool with playing alongside someone mute or deaf.

I will be at home near a computer or doing quick errands most of the day. Did we want to try doing the early parts of the Prison Heist before @jarp12 goes to the movies then the job afterward (I know @keirgo can't run too late)? If we aimed for 1 or 2pm Pacific it'd be 4-5pm start time for East Coasters?

I can definitely do 1-2 pacific time to start on some of the fetch quests for the main heist, I just gotta be outta here by 3:30p PST. I'm pretty sure @thechris is in Denmark so that would put him at around 10-11pm, please correct if I'm wrong. I saw your profile. :)

I know I'm a little late to the party, but it's currently $15 on PS4 and I would love to give the heists a try? Anybody interested in playing on PS4? I don't have a PC that could run it.

Never too late, I think there were some pS4 players in here.

Any PC players wanna try some heists today?

Sorry I've been MIA duders, things got busy at work. I won't have to go back to work until Wednesday evening, so I'll be around until then.

Is that temporary discord meetup server still in use, or did you all move over to the unofficial giant bomb server?
