Editors note HowlingMadMika

Welcome to issue 24 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

Bullet Factories seem to have been the main cause for violence during this week as Gentlemen of Fortune and its affiliates and Avarice and its allies continued to fight their battle over the New Jersey and California factories. Our writers have reported on both the attack and on the actual reason of the fight, catching up with both GoF and Avarice members to find out what exactly is going on.

More shootings occurred, though! It seems that resets do not erase all fights, or maybe the same fights have simply started again. Anyway, Event Horizon was shot by The Syndicate, losing its two State Dons. Nevertheless, the crew is still there, waiting to be targeted again. No bias there, honestly, we at the Buzz just love shootings, great writing material.

All shootings aside, the statistics suddenly said there were sixteen crews, with a maximum of fifteen. It turned out there was a bug in the crew system which allowed anyone with the funds and the rank to create a crew, despite there already being fifteen. Initially the crewholders were banned, but these bans were lifted after the matter was resolved.

We also have a Buzz contest for you this week. You can scroll down and read the article to find out how you can compete and maybe even win some shiny Bootleggers dollars. Furthermore we also have our weekly segments, 'Behind the Name', 'Bootleggers Game Statistics' and 'The Weekly Flash'. Unfortunately the auto-pruning got my 'Buzz Sound Off' thread before I could use it, which is why it is absent. I do apologize for this inconvenience.
