GTA Online: Rockstar introduces Hierarchies for Social Club Crews
With the launch of Grand Theft Auto 5 and its multiplayer component GTA Online, Rockstar is introducing an all-new Hierarchies system for Social Club Crews. Readily available now for all Crew Leaders at the Social Club website, Hierarchies allow the Leader of a 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.
Rockstar notes that there's no limit on how many Crew members you can designate to any one tier. Head on over to the Crew Management page to check out the newly implemented system.

Grand Theft Auto Online is free with every copy of Grand Theft Auto 5 and launches on October 1, a few weeks after the game's initial launch on September 17.
