Editors note HowlingMadMika

Welcome to issue 34 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

After a week that kind of lacked action, our writers were once more forced to use their imagination to come up with what we call a 'boring week article'. A task some find easier than others. Considering what happened last time when we at the Buzz wished for more killing I am going to do it again. Grab those guns and open fire! Give us something to write about. Sorry, I mean, give the Bootleggers community some action!

Then, just when we thought nothing was going to happen, something did. The unlucky ones: XS4ALL. Our, or rather, Sean's, saviors: Virtual Reality. In what was a successful inside attempt of the crew that literally accepted everyone the crewspot could hold, Virtual Reality provided us with pretty much the most exciting firefights of this week!

Despite a lack of other shootings shootings we do have articles for you, of course. All our weekly segments are in this issue. 'Behind the Name', 'Bootleggers Game Statistics', 'The Weekly Flash' and another 'Buzz Comic' from Altro. There is more, however. It does not end here, no worries.

The same Altro has written two columns for this issue, with each containing a totally different view on the current state of Bootleggers as a game, number of players online, and staff activity. I would definitely recommend reading both and making up your mind about what you agree with most when you are done. Even if you are still having doubts after reading you will have read two great articles. So it is a win-win either way.

Furthermore we are giving an article from the 'Suggestion Box' a try: profile reviews. This week, the profiles of two players were reviewed and the results written down to be published. Similar to 'Behind the Name', the players for this segment were, and will be, randomly selected and asked to participate. Both a short interview regarding the profile as well as an evaluation of it are included. Please read it and let a member of the Buzz staff know how you feel about it.

Well, that is pretty much it for the articles from the official writers, but there is more. First of all I owe an apology to a lovely lady who I stated to be a man. In the Editors Note of issue 33 I referred to DeliciousX as he by stating “his thoughts”. One look at the profile of this player would have revealed to me that what I thought to be a he is in fact a she. Anyway, sorry!

Luckily she was not that insulted and decided to continue freelancing for the Buzz. There are two articles of her this week. One about the Off Topic Forum and a comic. You all know the drill by now, read, enjoy, comment, and rate. Yep, that is the way you should do it.

That would be all for these notes. I will see you next week.
Until then, take care, and stay safe.
