Editors note HowlingMadMika

Welcome to Bootleggers Buzz issue 23!

I know some of you have been waiting quite a while already for this issue to be released, so let me keep this short so you can get on to actually reading the Buzz. Or well, who am I fooling, who reads the Editor Note anyway? Maybe it would be wise to host a contest in here, just to spark your interest in the notes. Anyway, enough for my personal thoughts and ideas, let me move on to what has happened this week.

Bullets were sent flying this week, that is what happened! A lot of crews were attacked, wiped or insided and several new crews also found their way to the statistics. La Teezi wiped The Rapture, but maybe the crew was just caught in the crossfire as the actual target was a totally different crew. Even though The Rapture was wiped, the crew has already returned to the statistics, so it was only a short absence for its members.

Another victim of the violence of this week was The Fraternity, the crew was respectively attacked and insider. However, this crew too managed to survive and return to the statistics. Another survivor we can note.

Then there were also the crews that were less lucky. Namely Ragazzi Cativa and the Condemned, even though the latter had already sold its spot. Both crews were selected to “play a game of Smoke and Mirrors.” Both refused to participate. Moreover, instead of wiping each other, the crews grew closer. Smoke and Mirrors did not approve this attitude and took matters into its own hands by killing the documented members of both crews.

Last but not least Gathering of Gangsters shot Vatos Locos and Empire of the Scum. Both crews were relatively new to the statistics, having been on there for less than a week. Then again, with fifteen crewspots owning one does appear to be some kind of survival of the fittest, and these crews were either unlucky or unable to adapt, and thus perished.

The issue of this week also features our usual weekly segments 'Behind the Name', 'Bootleggers Game Statistics', and 'The Weekly Flash'. Furthermore, if you would like to be picked for 'Behind the Name' then please copy the form from the segment in the previous issue (issue #21) and follow the instructions in the article.

A Game of Smoke and Mirrors HowlingMadMika

Ragazzi Cativa versus the Condemned, or so the idea was. An idea by Smoke and Mirrors in order to get crews to actually work for their spot on the statistics. Both crews had similar size and members, and Smoke and Mirrors felt that both had failed to actually do something while being on the statistics.
