Welcome fellow Bootleggers to Issue number 5 of the Buzz. 5 is a common number this week; 5 new HDOs and 5 brilliant articles. Our rather lengthy article getting to know the new HDOs better has unfortunately been delayed until next week, but I am proud to bring you some fantastic offerings. The much anticipated and several weeks in the making update on Troglodtyes article regarding the formation of an alliance between some of the major crews on the game is well worth the wait. Illinois brings us an article on the shooting of Event Horizon. Scarcio brings us an insider view of the recent merger between Death Valley and The Vanguard from the perspective of one of the members. Afty gets your views on the Swiss bank feature and finally Joke discusses the positives and negatives of the mobile version in an article entitled; "Bootlegging on the go".
Next week you will see an in depth article on the death of Plax, who died this week at the rank of Respectable Don.
You can also find all of the normal articles including the "Once Upon A Time" weekly which attempts to give you a nostalgic walk through the history of the game.
I do hope you enjoy the issue, and please leave all of the feedback that you can. The Buzz is also recruiting two new writers, if you are interested please contact any member of the Buzz Team.
Have a great week everyone.
COLUMN: The Smoke Begins to Clear
Three weeks on, an update into the deeper inter-crew connections that may shape this round in the long term, for better, or worse.
As a Buzz writer it is interesting to see what the Bootleggers community think about certain parts of the game. This week I'll be looking at the Swiss Bank feature and I hope to see what you guys think of it - can we get some discussion going in the comments section?
