Editors note DoubleAgentNyxxie

WELCOME to issue number 115 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

Another week has come and gone and here we are, yet again, to provide you with some time-passing fun with this week's Buzz issue! In this action-packed week, we are covering multiple State Don promotions. With the clearing of State Dons a few weeks ago, we were glad to see the spots taken up and the players willing to be interviewed by our writers. Helping further the action-packed week was DevilSSpawn's attack on three State Dons, ProfTolkien, RPH and Warhammer40k. Adding to his mayhem, he targeted The Black Death and a couple other players at random.

Also in the news is some crew takeovers. With the insiding of The Legends and The Black Death, crews were on the look out for suspected enemies within crew-lines. To add to crew news, The Vanguard raised their white flag and sold their crew spot to The Black Birds and Absolute Zero has returned to the stats, as well.

Mid-week, many players noticed the take down of a controversial Bootleggers help site, With the site disabled and the owner willing to speak about it, Buzz Editor DoubleAgentNyxxie got down to the nitty-gritty, asking some very tough questions right in the Game Forum.

The Buzz also says goodbye to another Help Desk Operator, Myst.

The Freelance Article writing contest has begun and everyone of the contenders' articles are ready for your reading enjoyment. Remember to rate each one and the one with the highest votes will be dubbed as a winner. Look forward to next week to see who the winners are! The prizes are totaling a whopping $500,000,000!

Al always, this issue is featuring the weekly segments you are used to see in each and every Buzz. We have 'Behind the Name', 'Telling It Like It Is', 'A Year Back' and 'The Weekly Flash' all lined up and ready for you to enjoy.

We seem to be repeating ourselves each and every issue, but we still welcome new writers with open arms.
