Editors note NYX2000

Welcome to Issue number 90 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

On behalf of the Buzz, we would like to name this week "Insiders Week" in honor of all the players with either no morals or big cajones to do what over 5 people did in the course of this issue! If you missed this week and wonder why we'd possibly be honoring those who usually make a lot of people mad, read on!

We mark in our history books that this week was certainly a week of war; sleazy war, that entailed conniving players, hard-kicking members and killing them with the use of the "Hard-Kick" bug. This week is surely a week to remember! The Sacred Empire, The Rapture, The Black Horde, The Imperium, Evolution, Silent Connection, Chaos Soldiers, Young and Dangerous and Fierce Allegiance were all crews that were victim to this new phenomenon known as the "Insiding and Hard Kick Effect" to plague Bootleggers!

However, through all the midst of death and bloodshed, we notice a lot less lag thanks to all the players who helped BSF2000 pin-point a thorn on all our sides! The lag, unknown to us what the definite culprit could have been, was the cause of a lot of problems in the game. Players were upset, so upset, in fact, that some stopped playing completely for a temporary period that the lag was a major problem. We asked everyone's opinion of the problem for our Sound Off article!

As always, we have our weekly articles such as the one listed above, "Sound Off", "Behind the Name", and "A Year Back". Joining them this week is "A Day in the Life Of..." I hope you all enjoy those as most of them are long-standing articles that have been done weekly for many past issues.

This week, I invite you all to take part in the "Bootleggers Buzz Awards!" The ballots are out and we want your votes to count this time around! So please, use the easy feature we have found to be very useful and take part!

All this and much more can be found in this issue of the Buzz!

We are always looking for writers. If you have what it takes to become a writer, feel free to read the article from issue 85 to see what we look for. Please send a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event to Nyxxie's current name (NYX2000) and she will personally look into it as soon as possible. Remember to mind your grammar, punctuation and spelling. If you are dead by the time we contact you, please submit the same article all over again!

Remember, anyone can write a freelance article and they are obviously free to do so. They are a chance for each of you to have a voice about the game and possibly share any thoughts that you may have with the BL community. Get moving and speak your minds! Also, be sure to check out, as advertised here.

Enjoy the read, everyone and have a wonderful next week!
