Editors note Mika

WELCOME to issue 16 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

At the time of me hitting the release button there are three crew spots available in the list of thirty. 'Only' twenty-seven crews on the statistics and three brand new spots are waiting for a Boss+ player to pick them up. A sign? Some certainly think so, probably with good reason. This is also the subject of the 'Buzz Sound Off' of this week, are thirty crews too much? Several opinions, gathered on the Game Forum, have already been included in the article. But of course the discussion continues, feel free to contribute your thoughts in the article comments section of the Sound Off article.

The Syndicate also surfaced this week as the underground crew attacked Event Horizon and the two Regulator crews, Smoke and Mirrors and Fire and Brimstone. Though, granted, both crews are not The Regulators and were entirely new crews, they were quick to temporarily re-organize in a spot that bore the Regulators name. North American Union was also wiped in an aftermath, following the events as conflict erupted regarding a bullet factory owned by Smoke and Mirrors.

We also take a look at the Bootleggers Lottery, is spending money on tickets worth it? Frick shares his opinion on the matter. Speaking of opinions, the Buzz is also curious to hear yours once more. Nyxxie has prepared a 'Buzz Survey' regarding the use of the forums, please be so kind to fill it in. Of course you may also discuss the survey or leave your opinion in the article comments.

What more do we have in store for you? Our weekly segments, of course. 'The Weekly Flash', 'Bootleggers Game Statistics' and, after the success of last week, 'Out of Context Humor'. The Bootleggers Buzz Comic, made by Nyxxie, is also present in this issue and covers the subject of Organized Crimes. A subject which, be it in an entirely different perspective, is discussed by Aldarion in a Freelance Article; make sure you read it and provide feedback and a rating.

Battle of the Bullet Factory Frick

For the members of Bootleggers, it was a case of another week, another massacre. The Syndicate, who was just a few weeks ago impersonated by someone claiming that they were retiring for good, joined forces with Strictly Business and Omerta to attack, inside and wipe three crews this week.

Lottery: Worth It? Frick

The Bootleggers lottery has been around for many years, and many players have lost and gained money from the feature. Thousands, maybe even millions, have been pumped in and out of the game for years. And, recently, a thought came across my mind: is it worth it to spend all that money on tickets?
