Editors note Mikamon

WELCOME to Issue number 98 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

Welcome to yet another jam packed issue of the Buzz. A lot of freelance articles this week alongside with the weekly segments and the articles to give you an impression of what happened this week.

And what a week it was. It seems like having ten crewspots is finally doing what it is supposed to do, causing fights over them! Not a week seems to go by without a change in the list of crews. As can be seen in the Obituaries, it has been quite a bloody week. We witnessed the rampage of The Order and the fall of Brothers in Arms as a result of it. That same Order was later attacked by the late California State Don.

Alongside with the death of this California State Don came the death of the Nation Don, GCC. He was quickly replaced by a friend and crewmate. Apart from the new State Dons, Bootleggers also meets a new Nation Don with his own plan.

Shootings aren't the only thing we have in store for you this week. A little stir on the forums this week as a new, Bootcrews like site advertised itself. Also, the Buzz is proud to introduce the very first "Bootleggers Buzz Tutorials". This week's article will explain the newer players how to use 'Escrow'.

Of course we also have our weekly segments for you. "Behind the Name" and "A Year Back" are there in this week's issue. Sadly enough, "Did You Know" isn't there and "Crew of The Week" is postponed to next week, seeing this week's crew, Brothers in Arms, got wiped.

As said before, there are a lot of freelance articles this week and we love them. Make sure to keep them coming as freelance articles are the perfect way to tell the Bootleggers community what you think. Keep sending them in because we love them.

As always, we are looking for writers. If you are interested in becoming a writer then read the re-printed version of "So You Think You Can Write?" in issue 97. 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.

Well, that was about it for this week's Editor Notes.
Enjoy the read! Take care and stay safe.
