Editors note Mika

Welcome to issue number 7 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

A quiet week this has been for most, and as such the lucky number issue, number seven, is quite an empty one. Apologies for that, if in order, are hereby offered. Even though it was a quiet week, our team did the best they could on working out the articles regarding the events. Because even though there were few, they were intense for those who experienced them.

Absolute Zero and The Vanguard clashed as the last crew was aiming for the bullet factory held by Pelli, Cain and their crew. While at it, the entire crew was wiped, causing the spot to be dropped. The laughing third party was The Gambino Family, which was founded by Spitter as he saw the chance and grabbed it.

This same principle also applied for Linebacker, who founded DoctorZ after spot previously owned by The Commission was dropped. The Commission which had been taken over by two of its own members, several hours before. Seeing those two members were the only ones in the crew at the time, it was an easy target.

Another easy target was Mobb Figaz. Or well, I should probably rephrase, the takeover was easy. After three years a seemingly loyal member was given the crew and decided to sell it for 500 points. Dirty trickery or tactful (ab)use of trust, you decide. Bootleggers is a mafia game after all, some said. Then again, crews are also based on loyalty and trust. Well, as I said, decide for yourself.

As weekly segments we have 'Behind the Name', featuring three new victims who have been questioned about their current names; 'The Weekly Flash' for your overview of the week and 'Bootleggers Game Statistics', to refer back to in the future. We are sad to inform you of the absence of 'The Ugly Truth', hopefully we will be able to provide you with this column in issue number eight.

With a current Buzz Staff of seventeen, it has been decided to put a hold on our search for new writers for now. All applications that are submitted now will be saved and reviewed whenever we feel we need new writers. Of course there is also a way for everyone to voice their opinion in the Buzz, whether they wish to become a writer or not. Do you want to share something with the community through the Buzz?

The Buzz Team will be back next week with another issue, and I hope so will you!

For now, take care and stay safe.

Mobb Figaz Betrayed! Seannypoo

This week, Mobb Figaz took a beating off the Statistics page when they were backstabbed by XSwensonX who was given the crew after three years of appearant loyal membership.

EvaperRadieR made a topic on the Game Forum letting everyone know what had happened. He explained that for three years XSwensonX had been gaining his trust for three years and when Evap finally decided to hand the crew to him, XSwensonX took the opportunity to kick every member of the crew and sell the crew for 500 points.

XSwensonX completely admitted to the scamming and didn't seem particularly remorseful when The Buzz questioned him about it. He said "I asked Evap for the crew to take a screenshot of me as boss, Sold it for 500 points, and that was it."

Evap's outrage in the Game Forum brought back mixed responses. Many people thought Evap was overreacting about being scammed but Pelliman stuck up for him and said "To see Evap reach out to the Game Forum obviously expressing his anger and getting boos and negative comments in return kinda shocked me."

Unfortunately, the Buzz were unable to get Evap to comment but it would appear that Mobb Figaz have made a return to the statistics so what we can expect for them in terms of retaliation remains to be seen. Stay tuned to see if "Evap will thrive", as Pelliman said.
