Editors note ShyGuyVI

Welcome to the fiftieth Issue of the Bootleggers Buzz!

The fiftieth issue of this round already. This round is almost running one year now and I believe it is going great. The staff is working hard to increase the amount of players and they are also improving the game quality with several updates. Believe it or not, but they are doing more than banning the naughty cheaters!

This week we witnessed quite a lot action. A lot crewless accounts were killed this week and all by different (underground) crews. The first shooting we witnessed was done by Rafiki. The name Rafiki may sound familiar to you. It is the name of the fancy mandrill of the movie The Lion King. Unfortunately his shooting had nothing to do with The Lion King, since he shot for the underground crew Asura. Approximately one billion dollar dropped, not bad for a monkey!

The second shooting was done by a new underground crew named Medellin. The shooting was performed by ShyGuy (thatís me?!) and resulted in a drop of 700 million dollar. The shooter of the third shooting was LadyVanish, who shot several members of Event Horizon. You got to love their death medals! Last, but not least we witnessed a fourth shooting. The shooter, OkieDokie, shot several crewless accounts and a few members of JAIL. Unfortunately that wasnít the only statistics crew which got hit this week. The crew Axteze were attacked by a player named Thorin. He wasnít able to drop the spot, because he failed to kill several members of Axteze. Conclusion of this week: it doesnít matter if you are in a crew or not, you will eventually be killed.

We were able to cover all events, but we also covered the updates of this week! I am not going to write them all down, because our new writer Caecus already did that for you. We also have a few articles about the current Crew feature. Another article about this matter?! Crews are very important on Bootleggers and therefore we at the Buzz want to share all our different thoughts.

Unfortunately the Buzz has also some bad news to share. One of our best writers, WhiteBeard, left the Buzz Team and he will no longer write for the Bootleggers Buzz. On behalf of the whole Buzz Team Iíd like to thank WhiteBeard for his dedication and his awesome articles. A great writer, player and friend, he will be missed!

Last, but not least we have a very interesting column about domination on Bootleggers and a fancy mafia fairytale. This week we created a topic on the Game Forum about this matter and we received a lot replies. We truly appreciate that and feel free to continue the discussion at the bottom of the article. Thatís it for this week! Keep your eyes open on the next Issue, because we are planning a fancy give away of 1,000 points! Enjoy the read and have a good Sunday!
