    Well we came to our decision and yes it is SOPO (again) - Well done guys.

    Without saying what exactly we look for in a CotM, I'll just say that overall this crew at least appears to have their shit sorted,
    they're well organised and are on top of it. The title is well deserved!

    I also have to say that they are not the only ones that look good here. There were a few crews 'in the pot' but of course I can't say which. I'm sure they'll still be around for next time. If you suspect I'm talking of your crew, just assume that's the case!


    So thanks for the interest from all, sorry if you didn't get it this time around and again well done Solid Points!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now then
    Fulkini & co. - I would usually ask you to fill out a questionnaire but you already did so last time, so that'll be pasted below. Instead just feel free to big up your crew below. I'm sure you all will anyway!

    Some questions answered by Fulkini
    1. Where did you come up with the name Solid Points?
    It was the name of the rock band that me and a few buddies started around the time we graduated from high school.

    2. When was your crew created
    Solid Points (SOPO) was officially founded on May 22, 2016.
    https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/solid_points

    3. What type of crew is your crew?
    We're a mafia organization that focuses on cooperation and fair play. Members around here know each other and have each other's back.
    4. What does your crew and the members do on a daily basis? Are you and the members on every day?
    Think of anything and our crew probably does it. We make lots of cash by doing CEO and MC work, as well as by doing heists. When the cash is in, we race together, fight in deathmatches, organize car meets and do much more. Next to these daily activities, our crew offers several special events every single week. Most of our members are around every day.

    5. Does you crew stretch anywhere besides GTA? Any other games?
    Even though there were some ideas in the past to make our crew a multi-gaming platform, we have decided to stick to GTA only. Of course we will be among the first to include GTA 6 when it gets released. Once in a while we do organize nights on which we play different games. We've had two Poker nights before, for example.

    6. Is your crew known around the GTA community? If so, which type (Competitive, role play, mafia, etc).
    Our own community has been sufficient so far. The vibe we get from most other crews is simply not the right one. Usually their website consists of several pages full of rules which command their members to basically do as their leaders say. Also a lot of crews aren't as focused on fair play as they claim to be. That being said, we are definitely interested in competing in friendly crew contests. We've done this before with great success and fun, and are currently in the midst of organizing a new crew vs crew contest.

    7. How do you go up the ranks in your crew? (Representative, lieutenant, commissioner) and do you have any custom made up ranks you can achieve?
    Solid Points is split up into the SOPO Society and the SOPO Family. The Family is the crew's mafia-themed inner circle of our most trusted members. The Society consists of four ranks that are not mafia-themed.

    After being accepted into our crew, a member gets the Recruit rank in our Society. This is a trial period which lasts a few days. The member gets promoted to Muscle if he's deemed worthy to the crew. That's when he receives the Social Club crew tag as a full member.

    To join the SOPO Family, you must be an Accomplice, which is the highest rank in the SOPO Society. We invite selected members into the Family ourselves, instead of members asking to join.

    Check out the chart below to see all of our ranks:
    8. What makes your crew unique from other crews?
    We offer a wide variety of events every week. Because it's simply too much to name, just take a look at our event calendar. You will probably find some things you like: http://solidpoints.shivtr.com/events

    Next to that, we don't force any mafia roleplaying onto our members. If you simply want to team up with us to join our daily activities and events, you can do so in our Society. When you get invited into the Family, joining or not joining are both available options.

    9. Do you have any outstanding members you'd like to talk about?
    First of all Driwee. He is the crew's second-in-command and has been around for a long time. He takes care of a lot of management work and has been really successful in it. Next to that we have RusATiLa, who is an expert in creating events and who has been in SOPO from the start. There are many other who deserve a honorable mention, but that's simply because we have so many awesome members ;-).

    10. What's your favorite car in your garage right now?
    Truffade Z-Type. For its combination of style and speed. It's a difficult choice though. Especially when you're a collector and have 120 vehicles in your garages.
    11. Anything else we need to know about SOPO?
    Don't be afraid to shoot us a message. Got any questions, want to test the vibe of our community first, or have anything else? Be sure to contact me. We really focus on being a gaming community, rather than a money-grinding crew or a crew that limits their members greatly. Join us if you like the words teamwork, fairness and fun.

    A representative even sent me a conversation complimenting me on my abilities as a leader and plans on directing all the PS4 members that try to join to me instead (because their pc only)
    The leader even gave me some constructive criticism on my crew and my recruitment methods

    Thanks guys, we've enjoyed the activity over the last period and will continue to maintain that activity. I know Fulk is a regular here and I too intend to continue talking up the website.

    Also, Josh8866, thanks for your tenacity; you're the number one poster for the Month of July, with me in third so you alone gave a crew of 90 a fuckin' good run for our money so hats off to you, we all agree you have the makings of a great crew leader :)

    Also, thanks to all other competitors of course. Roll on October/November and Never Rely on Randoms.

    Much obliged, everyone, thanks for the kind words. Great message to see when coming back from vacation ;-)
    It's been good meeting some new guys, and getting some more activity going on. Hopefully everyone will remain around here.

    Looking forward to the next CotM - hopefully with even more crews competing.

    Either way we're thankful for the title Crew of the Month, and feel this is a great reward for all the work that some key members have been doing within Solid Points.
