WELCOME to Bootleggers Buzz Issue 12!

I am stepping in for Mika this week as he has certain personal things to tend to this weekend. Never the less, I hope you enjoy this Buzz we have all prepared for you. This week, two crews were attacked, ridding one completely from the Statistics page. The victims, Smoke and Mirrors and Vendetta Dolce both felt the wrath of enemies and the end of their barrels.

Adding some excitement and gossip to the Buzz is Head Writer, Aldarion's, take on the "hoax" suicide of DonZalos and the events that followed. It is incredible that one would go through such lengths to cover their faults, and many were fooled. Will this event cause a change in when Elite Guard members sticky real life "death" topics? Do you even believe such threads should be stickied after the events that arose in the past few weeks? Please submit your comments in the appropriate article!

As always, we have our Weekly Flash for those of you who are not interested in dedicating some time to reading an entire issue. We also have our beloved Behind the Name, Buzz Comic edited by Mika and The Bootleggers Game Statistics for anyone interested in comparing and contrasting information from one week to the next.

As a little surprise, we have added a tiny contest for you all to enjoy. There will be a total of five winners winning both cash and point prizes. Please make a crew effort as this can very well be a great way to make some money for your crew bank! The crew with the most member contest entries will also win a prize for their crew bank! Prizes will be unknown until next week, when winners are crowned.

If you would like to become a Bootleggers Buzz writer then feel free to submit an application article on a recent game event via the 'Application' option on the bottom of this page. Bear in mind choice of subject, grammar and punctuation. We will try to review and reply all applications, both former and future, in a timely manner.

A great way to voice your opinion or to start a debate. To submit a freelance article, simply go to the bottom of this page and select 'Freelance article' in the drop menu.

We love when you take part in conversations within article threads and we are interested in what you have to say. If you rate an article, please also include a comment as to why you believe the article deserved that rating so we can fix any problems for future issues.

Enjoy the read and see ya next week!

COLUMN: Once Upon a Time... Aldarion

The truth surfaces about the "death" of DonZalos. It almost seems like a fictitious story, but here on Bootleggers nothing can be too crazy here.
