Editors note FlameS

Hello and welcome to the third issue of the Buzz in Round 8, I am delighted to bring you a number of varied articles this week. The newest member of the team; Coastie serves up a couple of articles, he brings back an old classic in the “behind the name” series and also rounds up his game forum discussion regarding whether banking is still important. TyranT gives us his first article and summarises the first few weeks of a new round through the eyes of a new player. Illinois gives us a wonderful article assessing the various playing styles available to us as players. And finally I bring you the story of Freshxx and whoever he represents versus Friction and whoever he represents; so far a mystery.

I will also give you a tip to check the game statistics this week taking particular reference to the amount of bullets that has come into this game in just a week, are we on the verge of something?

And finally I would like to take this time to say we are now recruiting more writers into the team, we currently have 3 or 4 spots available. If you are interested in writing for the Buzz then please contact me to discuss your application.

Have a great week everyone and as always please leave any feedback you may have so that my team and I can continue providing you with the quality you are used to.

Definition worth remembering RatFaceRay_

There's an annual contest at Bond University, Australia, calling for
the most appropriate definition of a popular term.

This year's chosen term was "Political Correctness".

The winning student wrote:

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and promoted by mainstream media
which holds forth the premise that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.
