Editors note Nyxxie

WELCOME to issue number 117 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

A week full of new crews and a new state don means an exciting week for us here at the Bootleggers Buzz! This week, we witnessed Louisiana State Don, BooM14, commit mass homicide against several players with a common factor; their wealth status. With Notorious Rich players being the victims of this attack, many money holders were scrambling to find other players to hold portions of their cash. We also saw the hot-potato crew affect on a crew spot that once held Made Me, now known as The Vanguard. While the State Don was up to no good, neither was the Nation Don, who had other plans with The Legends, attacking that crew as well. But death and destruction was not only in the cards for this week. We did see a new State Don and a handful of new crews.

A rather controversial Game Forum topic ties a nice neat bow in this week's Buzz when Bootcast Head DJ, MagzFuckentastic, brought up recent bans made on a "Money Laundering Scheme." With Family Account rules in place, using a middleman to conduct transactions is a big no-no in a form of circumventing rules. The topic caused quite a stir and we decided to question the players and one of the Administrators on this seemingly "innocent" deed.

As always, we have our weekly segments 'Behind the Name', 'A Year Back' and 'Telling It Like It Is' lined up and ready for you to read. The 'Weekly Flash' is MIA this week, but no fear, you will be seeing this very popular article back next issue.

Of course, we still welcome new writers with open arms. If you love to write and like to get to the bottom of things that happen on Bootleggers than you might be interested in becoming a Buzz writer. Read the reprinted version of 'So You Think You Can Write?' in Issue 97 and get your keyboard going. Submit your sample article via the 'Application' option in the drop menu and give us a week to get back to you. We love new colleagues, so we will make sure not to forget you!

Happy Gaming and Enjoy the Read!
