Editors note Mikamon

WELCOME to Issue number 96 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

The way towards publishing this issue has been long. Having been a Buzz writer for a year and a half, I could have never imagined I would one day publish the Buzz. Yet, it makes me feel excited that I can offer our readers the 96th issue of the Bootleggers Buzz. As we're nearing 100 issues, our writers are still working hard week after week to give our readers a good and interesting read every Sunday. Now let us take a brief look at the past week.

This relatively peaceful week witnessed a bloody end. At first, all our writers were busy covering crew events or were writing up their boring week articles. As soon as The Rapture opened fire and wiped Winter Hill Gang, some were able to save their boring week articles for later use and jump onto the current events. Yes, events, as the return of The Rapture also brought along an 11th crew, Helpx.

More crew news this week. As we say goodbye to Eternal Labyrinth, Palestinian Liberation and Mobb Figaz and welcome Trifecta, Eternal Defiance and The FataL Wounds to the statistics.

We also dug into the Arm Wrestling feature for you and came up with quite some interesting facts. As always, we have our weekly segments. "Behind the Name", "A Year Back", "Did You Know?" and "Crew Of The Week". Not only our writers but also the freelancers have submitted articles. Remember, anyone can submit a freelance article and it will be published as long as it is game related. Writing up a Freelance article is the perfect way to voice your thoughts and get them into the Bootleggers community.

Also note that 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.

Enjoy this week's read. The Buzz Staff has worked hard and hopes you'll enjoy reading the articles as much as we enjoyed writing them. Take care and stay safe!
