Editors note HowlingMadMika

Welcome to issue 28 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

What a week. The Order, Event Horizon, Virtual Reality, The Fraternity, Avarice those are only a couple of crewnames that passed the statistics this week, one way or the other. As these names appeared, names of other crews disappeared. The smaller amount of crewspots is finally beginning to cause the action we have been hoping for? Or maybe the crews that were wiped off are simply showing the community they deserve to be on the statistics, and this is simply the restoration of the natural, Bootleggers order.

It would appear that exams and homework are in the air once again, as several of my writers need to revise in order to ensure those important results are ones they can be proud of. Luckily there are some others who can still write, so we hope this somewhat smaller issue will still be satisfactory for you, our beloved readers.

Apart from articles covering the return of several crews, we also have a new article about casinos. This week, Sean has taken a look at the Keno table to find out what makes this casino worth playing on. Of course we also have our usual weekly segments, 'Behind the Name', 'The Weekly Flash', 'Bootleggers Game Statistics', and the 'Obituaries' are all lined up and waiting for you.

As always we are looking for new writers. If you wish to give the Buzz a try, then you are encouraged to submit an application article on the bottom of this page. If you would like some hints and tips then please refer to the 'Road to the Buzz Forum' article in this issue. We will do our very best to respond to every application as soon as we can, usually within two weeks.

If you do not feel like applying, but would like to contribute in the form of an article, then consider giving the freelance article a go. They are always appreciated, and a great way to voice your opinion about a game related event. They do not have to meet the same requirements as applications in order to be published. All freelance articles are published as long as they are game related and do not contain content that is against the Terms of Service. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Well, that would be all for the notes. We will be back next week, and we hope you will as well.
As always, enjoy the read; take care, and stay safe.

COLUMN: Time for a Third? HowlingMadMika

“Thanks to the excellent points sales this round, I am confident that we will find another great coder, which were the original intentions.” These words were written down by BSF2000 when he responded to the situation that had occurred around Sabin and his resignation. While I am not interested in sparking up that debate, I agree with what BSF2000 wrote: a new coder would not be a bad thing for the game.
