Editors note MikaTesstic

Welcome to Bootleggers Buzz Issue 130!

It is Sunday once again and so it is time for me to release issue 130. Personally I find it hard to grasp the Buzz is already going for 130 weeks. In the time we have seen many writers come and go, but the one thing each week had in common was a Buzz, filled with the news of the week for you, the reader. We have managed to deliver you a Buzz for 129 weeks, and now we have put together another fresh one for week 130, and everything you usually see is in it once again.

Our articles this week are only focusing on the major events, as the Buzz Team is still suffers under the vicious attacks of exams and our studies. We regret this and would like to apologize for the inconvenience. On the other hand we do hope to be able to bring you guys a full and even more exciting Buzz as soon as the exams are over, seeing our writers should be back when that happens. Meanwhile we hope you will enjoy the articles we prepared for you, for we tried to make them as interesting as possible, like we always do!

This week, our writers focused on the attack on Strictly Business and the uprising of The Usual Suspect as a result of the confusion and violence following the attack. We further covered a State Don who is becoming a somewhat regular subject for our articles, MOON82. Something the articles about him seem to have in common is they all display him as an aggressor. The New Jersey State Don decided it was time to attack The Sacred Empire, and so he did.

The Elite Guard interview that was published next week is continued in this issue, as the Buzz now caught up with Senior Moderator VooDooDoll and asked her some questions which hopefully allow you to get to know her a bit better, and maybe even get an answer to some things you always wondered about this lovely lady in green.

The Buzz would also like to remind those of you who wish to advertise that this is possible. Please submit a picture of 250 by 250 pixels as a freelance article and you might see your advertisement in the next issue. As always we have our weekly segments 'The Weekly Flash', 'A Year Back' and 'Bootleggers Game Statistics' lined up and waiting. We have one Freelance Article for you this week. And as always, we encourage everyone to send one in for the issues to come, even if it is just used to write down what your thoughts about the game are. Share it! People love to read it, and we love to publish them. What more can you wish for? The Buzz was very happy to find two freelance articles which were submitted to be published in this issue, and of course both of them can be found in this issue.

Those of you who wish to become a writer are encouraged to submit an application article via the 'Application' option in the drop menu below each Buzz. Although our hyperactive search for writers has come to and end, those with talent and a good article might still find themselves being offered the digital pen of the Bootleggers Buzz writer. You might want to give it a try. After all, who knows? You might be talented and thus... lucky! Either way, please have patience after submitting an application, since our very active search is over it may take a while before you receive a reply to your application.

Well, that would be all for the Editors Note, folks! I hope you will all enjoy the read we have prepared for you. Feel free to rate and comment as always!

Once again, enjoy the read. Take care, stay safe and see you all next week, because I can assure you the Buzz will be there!

Strictly Business Wiped QuantumOfAldarion

The last few weeks, most wipes were done by State Dons. This week, this was once again the case. luaymaaniV4, State Don of Pennsylvania, attacked Strictly Business. At first it seemed if he intended to do significant damage to the crew, instead of wiping them completely. However, he finished the job in the second spree.

An Interview With VooDooDoll MotherFrick

The Sacred Empire reduced to ruin! IShallPersevere

The peaceful forums were once again littered with RIP topics when on Tuesday, State Don MOON82 attacked The Sacred Empire, killing many of their members. This is not the first time the Buzz has featured MOON82, who is becoming a regular in the weekly articles due to his many shootings.

The Usual Suspects Take a Spot MikaTesstic

With Strictly Business being shot, short and heavy conflicts for the spot eventually resulted in one winner, The Usual Suspects. As the Buzz was keen to find out what happened, we set out to find information and were referred to DemonV11 to acquire information about the shootings and the planning. Due to circumstances the Buzz was unable to get in touch with him before the release, and therefor a larger article on appearance of The Usual Suspects will be featured in the issue of next week.

The Buzz did however manage to get in touch with HowYouDoinv3, who told us, "The Usual Suspects has been a long time ambition of mines. With the help of Demon it has finally been realised." He added, "Although we are the bosses of the crew Demon and myself are not the founders. It was founded by Tynos some time ago and we asked him for his permission and blessing to go ahead and carry on with it."

Carry on with it they did, and we hope to provide you with more details in Issue 131!
