Editors note NYX2000

WELCOME to Issue number 97 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

It's here again! Another fresh Bootleggers Buzz. Nyxxie has been a bit busy this week, but with the lack of events this week, she didn't miss much. After a rather quiet week, our writers have done the best they could to bring you another issue of Bootlegger's own paper.

This week, we saw the total amount of crews drop from eleven to the normal ten. With the wipe of The Imperium, there was one crew less. After being wiped the crew's founder Dagolard decided to disband his crew and call it a day. Even so, the “11th crew”, Helpx loves EL did cause a little stir as the crew remained in the hands of a dead player.

More crew news this week as The Rapture sold their spot, causing it to make a little tour until it finally ended up in the hands of The Organisation. Eternal Defiance also witnessed a little shock as the crew heard rumors there were insiders amongst the members.

Due to real life issues, we don't have “Crew of The Week” and “Buzz Sound Off”. These segments will of course be back for next week's issue. This week, all the other weekly segments such as “Behind the Name” and “A Year Back” are there.

There are a lot of freelance articles this week and we can safely say the Buzz is thrilled to see them. We love to read and hear the stories and opinions of other people about all kinds of Bootleggers subjects. Keep submitting those freelance articles as this is one of the best ways to voice your views to the rest of the players.

As always, we are looking for writers. If you are interested in becoming a writer then read the re-printed version of “So You Think You Can Write?”. Please submit a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event via selecting Application in the "Send a" located on the bottom of each Buzz. 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! Your articles will be reviewed as quickly as possible but please have patience, we won't forget about you.

Enjoy this week's read! Take care and stay safe.

Stock market - Needs an update? Conquest

Well, hardly anyone uses the stock market anymore as it doesn't give tremendous amounts of profit. Only the first timers would use it to gain little money. So this leads to my question: IS it time for the stock market to have an update?
