Editors note NyxxieIn3D

Welcome to Issue 106 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

I'd also like to welcome you to the last Buzz issue of this year! Another year on Bootleggers has passed by very quickly. Hopefully the new year will bring us more excitement, new friends and more things for us to enjoy. Let us also start this issue by hoping each and everyone of you has had a lovely Christmas or holiday time with their families and loved ones. Hopefully your Holiday was everything you wished for.

Then, to make a complete turn, we go from times of peace to the status of Bootleggers that has been rather violent. A word that would definitely be suited to describe this week would be “death”! With the entire killing system revamped, killing has been dramatically changed and is more exciting then ever before.

Now, a little longer then 24 hours after the update, the results are still visible. With several crews that got wiped and other crews that lost members due to this update. All of it is in this week's Buzz. Ranging from information on the update itself to it's brute and violent consequences.

Of course, the Buzz also has other articles for you to enjoy, such as the results of the Buzz Contest! Everyone has been busy buying cars in an attempt to win one of the fabulous prices. Due to all the killings, some cars may have been lost. However, as promised, new cars will be put up for sale if that has happened. Check out the contest article in this issue to see if you've won and how you can claim your price if you have!

This week, we have 'Behind the Name', 'Telling It Like It Is' and 'A Year Back' waiting for you. Alongside with the single freelance article we received. It's a sad thing that we haven't gotten more. Especially with the new updates and opinions that seem to be different for every player. Remember, they are a chance for the normal player to have share his or her thoughts on the game or something that happened in the game.

We are still looking for writers. If you are interested in becoming a writer then read the re-printed version of "So You Think You Can Write?" in issue 97. Please submit a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event via selecting Application in the "Send a" located on the bottom of each Buzz. Remember to mind your grammar, punctuation and spelling. If you are dead before we've contacted you, please submit the same article all over again. Your articles will be reviewed as quickly as possible but please have patience, we won't forget about you.

The entire Buzz Team would like to wish you a happy New Year and hopes you'll get through it all without getting into trouble. Say safe, crack the champagne and have fun on New Year's Eve!
Enjoy the read!
