Editors note NYX2000

WELCOME to Issue number 95 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

What a week! It was a very busy week for the crews of Bootleggers. In only seven days, we witnessed several crew wipes, sells and the return of known crews. Alongside the crew activity, the staff decided to update Family Account rules. They became less strict and now allow players that share IP to play the game more freely. Speaking of the staff, this week ended with a bang as Moderator Shaggerty killed his own account and disappeared, leaving the players to wonder what had happened.

One of the crews that met their end not once, but twice this week was The Deadly Alliance. Alongside with Gangster Sanctuary and The Rising Shadow, they had to wave the statistics goodbye. Apart from goodbyes, we also had welcomes this week. Strictly Business, Winter Hill Gang, The Imperium, Mobb Figaz and Alliance found themselves listed on the statistics page.

This week also has all the weekly segments such as “Behind the Name” and “A Year Back”. Sadly, “Did You Know” has been postponed due to the busy schedule of our writers. To compensate the lack of this, the Buzz is proud to re-introduce “Crew of The Week”, which will be starting as of this issue.

As always, the Buzz is looking for writers. If you have what it takes to become a writer, feel free to read the article from issue 85 to see what we look for. 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 by the time we contact 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.

Sadly, there aren't any freelance articles to publish this week. Remember that everyone can write and submit a freelance article. As long as it contains Bootleggers related information and isn't against the ToS, every single freelance article is published. Submitting a freelance article is the opportunity for each of you to have a voice about the game and possibly share any thoughts that you may have with the BL community. So start writing those thoughts down, there is a spot in the Buzz that is waiting for them!

Enjoy the read!
