Issue: 59   Editor: McAldarion


Editors note McAldarion

Heya, welcome to another issue of the Bootleggers Buzz! Currently on issue 59, we're rapidly closing in on issue 60. No idea why I'm saying that but I just thought it would be nice if I for once had an opening sentence that contains more than ten words.

This week we went through some internal changes to improve things as they are on our cosy Buzz forum which worked out pretty well. Meanwhile, we already starting working on a very exciting Christmas which involves something that had to be tested by putting me in jail for like 32000 seconds. Very interesting, isn't it?! Plan is to reveal the competition either next week or the week after.

So what do we have this week? We have an article from Poison who interviewed BSF2000 about the recent update to crimes. He also reveals some interesting information about a possible update of something the majority of the players would probably like to see. Now what could that possibly be? Check out the article!

TROLLS! What should we do with them? Some love them, some hate them. All we know is, they are around on Bootleggers and they cause controversy from time to time. Marlon wrote a column sharing his views on the current situation and possible solutions and/or changes to this problem. But is it even a problem? Don't forget to read his column and to share your views on trolls!

Finally some idiot wrote an article about the current state of the game where he takes a look at recent development and the game's balance. We also have the nominations for the Buzz Awards 2010! Voting will commence next week and winners will be announced the week after that. Thanks to all people who participated in the process!

That'll be my story for this issue. It's time to get some coffee as writing makes very thirsty. Bet you didn't know that, check it out by becoming a writer! Okay, that was bad wasn't it, lol. Anyway, we still need writers.

Enjoy the read!
