Editors note Mika

Welcome to Bootleggers Buzz Issue number 18!

Another Sunday, another Buzz, business like usual here on Bootleggers. It is doubtful anyone missed it, but just in case, the main event of the week was of course the shooting organized by Eternal Labyrinth, supposedly over what had happened last round. By adopting a style used by multiple underground crews, Eternal Labyrinth attacked and wiped Virtual Reality and Strictly Business. Whereas it initially seemed as if The Invisibles would survive the attacks and even retaliated, this crew eventually bit the dust as well.

Furthermore, this week meant the one year anniversary of Riserva and Nyxxie as Elite Guard Moderators. The Buzz caught up with the first to reflect on his past year. In addition, VooDooDoll was also interviewed for 'Lifting the Veil', an article we hope to introduce as a weekly segment. The Senior Moderator was asked to share her thoughts on several questions from one of our writers. Yet, that is not all for as far as interviews go, the Buzz has also zoomed in on one of the bars that can be found on the Off Topic Forum and caught up with its creators.

Apart from all our usual weekly segments, 'Behind the Name', which actually features three players this time, no worries, 'Buzz Sound Off', 'Bootleggers Game Statistics' and of course 'The Weekly Flash' we are also featuring a column which takes a look at the name this round was given when the game was reset; Bootleggers Round 6: The Original. Last but certainly not least we also have a freelance article in store for you, written by Drokken who, in an attempt to combat unfair OC percents, decided to do some math and share the results with you.

As always, anyone who is considering to join the Buzz Team is asked to submit an application article on the bottom of this page, make sure your article is about a Bootleggers related subject and bear in mind grammar, punctuation and overall style. If you do not feel like applying but would like to share your views with the Bootleggers public then do what Drokken did and submit a freelance article. They can be about anything you like as long as it is game related and are a great way of starting a discussion or to simply share your thoughts. We look forward to reading from you!

Before I conclude these notes, please feel free to rate articles and to provide feedback to our writers so they can continue to improve and maybe adjust their articles to the likes of the reader. Article comments are there for a reason, so do not hesitate to discuss or give a general comment.

That would be all. Enjoy the read, take care, and stay safe.
