Editors note ShyGuyXIV

Welcome to Issue #67 of the Bootleggers Buzz

Woah, what the hell did we witness this week?! Shootings, updates, State Dons and finally a Nation Don! This week it was definitely update-mania. We witnessed the reduction of the rank requirements, a new feature (Graveyard) and plenty of other updates. The reduction of the rank requirements resulted in a few State Don promotions and eventually in the promotion of the first Nation Don of round 7; R4tFaceRay. On behalf of the Buzz Team we’d like to congratulate all the new State Dons and of course our lovely yellow Nation Don. Alrighty, back to the content of the week, because we have plenty of matters to discuss with you.

This week we finally witnessed some shootings! One week ago the party started with a shooter named Tiptoe, also known as the old leader of Axteze; Aldo. He was eventually able to wipe Haze Blazers and kill several crewless players. After the crew spot dropped, a new crew got created; The Deadly Alliance. A crew which retired a few years ago, but this week it returned. A few hours later the crew spot got insided. Plenty of action, but there is more. A few days later we witnessed the wipe of Astraea and La Onda. Since I was involved in both matters I requested another writer to cover this event, however due real life issues the article has not been written yet. You can find more information about this matter in the next Bootleggers Buzz!

That was the action of this week, but we have plenty of other matters to discuss. As stated before, we witnessed plenty of updates this week. You know what that means? Hell yeah; columns! In this week’s issue we have a very interesting article about an update which occurred this week; the reduction of the Gymnasium timers. More action on Bootleggers or are these changes too late? Finally we have an article regarding the reduction of the rank requirements and the Swiss Bank feature. The weekly articles? Well, unfortunately we only have behind the name and once upon a time for you. But ey, these articles are still awesome!

Last but not least I’d like to state some very good news! This week we got ourselves a new Buzz Writer; MysticW1g. He did not write an article in this issue, but you will definitely read an awesome article in the next Bootleggers Buzz. A new writer, but the Buzz Team is, as always, still looking for some new writers! You want to join? Write a freelance article about a Bootleggers related subject and please contact me! That’s it for now! Enjoy this week’s issue and enjoy your Sunday!
