Update From the Staff FlameS

Hey folks,

A warm welcome to all of you Bootleggers out there that have tuned into this staff update. Riot and I have been spending a lot of quality time on the game these past few weeks, in the community facing side of our roles, we have hosted a half timers event; just because, a few rounds of Russian Roulette and have been watching over the game, contributing when necessary.

To the non-public side of our role and we have been even busier under the surface, the Help Desk is well and truly up to date with the fantastic assistance of our friends in yellow.

We have unfortunately had to add our first two names to the Ban on Sight list since becoming moderators; both Rafiq and Naser have proven themselves unable to play fairly and have therefore been added to the BOS list.

A quite significant list of boosts was finally completed this week, it had grown since a number of larger shootings had recently taken place that needed correction, but in terms of boosts, we are done, wahoo!

In other news we have formally submitted our revised forum rules to Kyle for implementation, the idea of a revised set of forum rules is the culmination of a few discussions but originally from Spine, who had his crew topic removed from the game forum. We were in complete agreement with him that a more active game forum is desirable, and perhaps all game related content should be available here. DTOX also made an appeal for more activity in the forums that took place after we had begin revising the forum rules, so we hope this is a step in the right direction of making the forums, the centre of the Bootleggers community feel once more.

Finally, over the last few weeks, we have been working on some bug tracking and documenting ready for Kyles return this week, we have prioritised him a number of issues, the main one being the current bug with the failure of notifications being sent when a car is removed, either by theft or being reported to the police.

A more comprehensive list of the current bugs are below, feel free to consult this list if you are experiencing an issue to see if we are already aware of it.

Known Issues and Bugs

I have seen a lot of duplicate Help Desk tickets and questions in the forums relating to these we have already logged for bug exploration, there is a topic in the Game Forum, but that platform may not well be visual enough to easily work out the current issues, therefore I thought I would maintain a weekly published list of issues for you here. I have grouped them by feature;

Resolved bugs are in Green.
New bugs are in Red.


  • A styling error is currently sometimes selecting the 2 of hearts as a replacement for all cards, this does not change the functionality as the game continues to play correctly
  • A 5 minute timer has been implemented to stop bets being left at the casino however the timer is not displayed to the player

Kill to Whack Upgrade

  • Rank section of statistics displaying incorrectly
  • Number of bullets fired statistic not showing correctly
  • If you die multiple times with the same username, your previous kills are not displaying correctly in the graveyard
  • If you sign back up with the same username, higher city crimes are available to you

Mobile Issues

  • Purchase page within the Gold menu – cannot navigate away


  • Hardkicking members does not always demote the player of their rank

Photo Album

  • Users are unable to upload new photos


  • Achievements are not always being awarded correctly, commonly; Witnessing a kill and holding a casino for seven days


  • Assignment rewards continue to give gym stats
  • Rewards for completing milestone achievements are not being awarded


  • Blocking a player still allows the blocker to send messages to the person they blocked


  • When you have found a mission character using the PI, the mission page is not updated

Auto Burglary

  • Downgrading a garage drops all of the cars in your garage
  • Garage sizes have increased, yet the old sizes remain in name, 15=5
  • Notification from cars being stolen are inconsistent and not coming through


  • The timer for the Hospital page appears to be inconsistent


  • Voting for half timers seems to be inconsistent, this is likely to do with an issue on that website as opposed to BL
