Editors note TheAldarionArmy

Hello and welcome to issue number 72 of the Bootleggers Buzz, which miraculously has a weird picture above it. Let's start with a random fact to start this issue with. Did you know that by the early fourth century, the Romans had built a road network of 53,000 miles throughout the empire? And that each Roman mile was about 1,000 paces (about 4,800 feet) and was marked by a milestone?

So, what have we got this issue? We have the results of the survey that was posted on the game forum earlier on. It offered you a chance to get $100,000 free, by just participating! I hope you didn't miss it. Anyway, the results show something we perhaps already knew, but at least it's official now. Furthermore, we have an article from our newest addition to the team: KingSpaff. The article matches part of the survey as he talks about crews and why you should or should not be in one. Go check it out!

We also have a new puzzle in this week's issue, which allows you to win some nice money. Winners from the issue #70 puzzle will be awarded today or tomorrow. Last, but definitely not least, we've got two nice freelance articles on the current state of Bootleggers, one of them even being an article that used to appear in the Buzz on a weekly basis. I can't even remember having two proper freelance articles for a while, so that's a great development. Check them out, and don't forget that you're always welcome to write something yourself!

Enjoy the read!

The Ugly Truth Dooosy

Haha... It's slightly been a while since I've submitted anything here to say the least. To be honest, nothing has really caught my eye or given me a reason to write a piece for a pretend newspaper on a dying game.

Just a perspective TheBull

"Bootleggers has died!", "What happened to the game?", "Game is turned into shit".
These are a few expressions that are seen on the forum quiet alot. There are hardly 100 people online on a steady base, and just one player made crew left on the statistics page.
