Editors note Shaktoolik

Welcome to issue 144 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

The week is almost up, and thus here we are again with a brand new, crispy issue of the Buzz. As always I start this editors note with the events concerning crews. Yes. It is becoming a habit, is it not? Bootleggers has fifteen of them at the same time, though some weeks have seen far more than that amount come by.

As far as this week is concerned, our Buzz week started Sunday evening after the release of the Buzz when the Nation Don opened fire and wiped Fierce Allegiance. Nevertheless this was just the start. Evocati was wiped as well, the spot was left with Volatile. Another new crew is The Unforgiven, and after La Commercia was renamed into Chaos Soldiers it was wiped as well, causing even more virtual death and a new crew: Immortal Dynasty. Death, shootings, we at the Buzz just love them as they provide a great source of news and make awesome articles. So please, keep those guns in tip top shape and make sure to use them every now and then.

The Bootleggers community, maybe with the exception of the victims, just love the action. It makes paying attention worthwhile, although it may be a bit violent. Violent? Right! This is still a game and shooting is part of that. Keep the mafia spirit alive say we at the Buzz. Apart from the shootings this Buzz also contains a call from our very own BootCast Head DJ. He is looking for YOUR feedback and advice in order to crank up the amount of listeners to Bootleggers' own radio station. There are more DJs and the BootCast is online more often, yet the amount of listeners seems to be dropping. Take a look at give your advice, it is really appreciated and will benefit all of us.

Of course this Buzz also contains the usual weekly articles you are used to seeing such as 'Crew of the Week' which has zoomed in on The Monarchy, 'The Weekly Flash', containing this week in a nutshell as well as some other facts which were either too small to be covered in a separate article or which could not be written due to a lack of information, the 'Bootleggers Game Statistics', the article that allows you to keep track of significant changes on the statistics page, and naturally we also have 'A Year Back' for you to bring back those memories of the past.

As always we are looking for writers to come and reinforce our team. If you feel you have got what it takes to become a Buzz Writer then please submit an application article about a recent, Bootleggers related subject and you might be finding yourself being offered the digital pen of the Bootleggers Buzz writer. It may take a while before we reply to your application, but rest assured, we will reply. In addition I would like to remind everyone to re-submit their application if they have died before they received a reply as we are unable to track your account.

I have spilled everything I needed to. I would say: Move on and start reading the articles.
See you all next week, and until then, take care and stay safe!

An Immortal Dynasty Shaktoolik

The BootCast: Looking for Player Tips! Shaktoolik

Just like the Buzz, the BootCast is a feature that is presented by players for the players. It is quite logical that both features want to improve themselves where- and whenever possible. The BootCast Head DJ, Mags, felt that the amount of listeners (or the listener base) should increase.
