Editors note Nyxxie

Welcome to Bootleggers Buzz Issue 132!

First of all I would like to apologize for this rather small issue. Or, well, hang on, that phrase belongs to the past, at least for now! Our Buzz team is back and virtually at full strength. The result of this joyful event, except the reunion parties at the Buzz Forum, is another jam packed Buzz that has been filled with a lot of interesting articles for you to read. Our team has done its very best to make all the article as interesting and fun as they possibly could.

So, what are we featuring this week? Quite a lot, actually. Let me see. Of course we did not miss the events regarding The Vanguard and Infinity. Our writers have covered the disappearances of both crews. Furthermore we have also covered the event with which our Buzz week seemed to start, the attempt to inside Paradise. Apart from the violence that concerned these crews, The Deadly Alliance also got a somewhat belated welcome gift. Maybe a gift is not the best way to describe it, after several threats the crew found itself under attack but to the surprise, and possible disappointment or relief, the crew only lost a couple of accounts.

Enough about the violent news, there is also less negative news as far as the crews are concerned. Because apart from destruction, there was also creation. The Buzz, alongside other players, is happy to welcome Industrial Anarchy to the statistics page. With several somewhat older and more experienced Bootleggers players, this crew will attempt to survive in an ever changing environment in which the rule thought of by Charles Darwin seems to apply. Survival of the fittest could be applied to the Bootleggers statistics page, and we are curious to see how this new crew will do in the environment which requires adaptation and skill from the crews on it.

Like every week, our writers set off to do their share of interviews and the Buzz is covering them as always. This week, Elite Guard Moderators Riserva and Nyxxie were interviewed about their positions. We dug somewhat into the world of the newly risen underground crew The Scene and got your opinion about bust parties. We are also glad to have received a Freelance Article, and hope it is to your liking. Last but not least we have our weekly articles in store for you. 'A Year Back', 'The Weekly Flash' and 'Bootleggers Game Statistics' have been included in the issue of this week and we hope you will enjoy them all.

Finally, those of you who wish to become a writer are encouraged to submit an application article via the 'Application' option in the drop menu below each Buzz. Although our hyperactive search for writers has come to and end, those with talent and a good article might still find themselves being offered the digital pen of the Bootleggers Buzz writer. You might want to give it a try. After all, who knows? You might be talented and thus... lucky! Either way, please have patience after submitting an application, since our very active search is over it may take a while before you receive a reply to your application.

Well, I can say I have pretty much ran out of information for this Editors Note, it has covered everything I wanted it to cover. All that remains is wishing you a good new week. Enjoy this issue of the Buzz, we worked very hard to get it ready and we hope this pays off. Take care everyone, and stay safe!
