Editors note Mikamon

Welcome to issue #120 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

I must say that this week was rather dull until it reached its end. Up until Saturday, nothing really special had happened and it wasn't until Sunday that we saw some real bloodshed as all our State Dons ended up getting shot by Diesel and Sensei. Of course we had the several events to cover and our writers did their very best to do so as best as they possibly could.

This week, Bootleggers became eligble to win the MPOGD Game of the Month contest again. After having won this contest for several times, Bootleggers will try to win once again and all players are asked to help. In exchange for our help, Petty Crimes will now earn you bullets. Alongside with the MPOGD update came the BootCast Call-In feature that was added this week. Players can now call-in and record a message for the DJ to air during his or her show.

Like every week, the crews seem to keep us busy as well. Lynx and Winter Hill Gang seemed to be the unlucky crews of this week as they either got insided or wiped. World of Domination replaced the inside Lynx after buying their spot and The Black Hand replaced Winter Hill Gang. However, they got attacked themselves now and could just be in trouble.

Of course the major shooting of this week occurred only a few hours ago, as Diesel and Sensei opened fire and killed all the State Dons. By doing so, they ended all discussion regarding a possible new Nation Don and may have fired up a new discussion about who will be the lucky ones to reach State Don.

And as always we have our weekly segments lined up for you and ready to read and enjoy. We have 'Telling It Like It Is', 'A Year Back' and 'The Weekly Flash' lined up for you and hope that you will like reading all of them. As you might have noticed, 'Behind the Name' is not in this week's issue. The reason for this is that we have decided to revise the segment as it has been the same for quite a while now. Any suggestions regarding how we can improve this segment are of course appreciated and can be send to either Nyxxie or Mika.

We still welcome new writers with open arms. If you love to write and like to get to the bottom of things that happen on Bootleggers than you might be interested in becoming a Buzz writer. Read the reprinted version of 'So You Think You Can Write?' in Issue 97 and get your keyboard going. This same article can also be used as a handy guide for those of you who wish to submit Freelance Articles. The Buzz was happy to publish two of them this week and we hope that you will enjoy them as well. If you want to submit an application article then please do so via the 'Application' option in the drop menu and give us a week to get back to you. We love new colleagues, so we will make sure not to forget you!

As always, enjoy this week's read and stay safe.
Take care and see you all next week!
