Editors note ShyGuyXIV

Welcome to Issue #68 of the Bootleggers Buzz

Can we get an encore, do you want more?! Hell yeah, we got an amazing issue this week! As promised, we got the story of the shootings of last week and way, way, way more. This week we did not witness a lot action, except the attack on Enemy of The State. Two shooters, PutTheKettleOn and Sunzi, were able to kill approximately 50 members of the crew, but they were not able to drop the crew spot. Which crew was behind this attack? Well, Event Horizon and Vendetta, but I suggest you read the entire article for more information! That was the action of the week, pretty boring eh?

As you may have noticed the Buzz did not receive an article of BSF2000. A pity, because he never updated us about the status of his article. No bad feelings here, because as always we have a solution; Mika’s 2000 characters. Not a very original title, but ey; it’s Mika! In this article Mika gives you an overall update about Bootleggers, based on some inside information! Definitely worth the read! Anything else this week? Ha-ha, plenty.

It seems subliminal messages are a big success, because the Buzz has a new writer; IamNaamloos. This fine piece of talent wrote a fancy column about the latest updates. That brings us to the writer who joined last week; MysticW1g. Mystic introduces a new weekly article; Mysticals Grype. In his article he shares his, and your, annoying moments on Bootleggers. Even more weekly articles?! Unlike last week, we now have all the weekly articles for you; The Chat, Forum Post of the Week, Behind the Name and so on!

Finally, we also received an amazing freelance article of DonAccuso about the newest feature on Bootleggers; The Graveyard. An awesome article, just like the other articles. A big and amazing issue, written by a somewhat bigger and still awesome team. Do you wish to be part of this team? In this issue we have a guide which helps you writing your application! Do not hesitate to message me if you want to join the Buzz Team or if you have any questions regarding the Buzz. Thumbs up for the Buzz Team and I wish you all the best for this week. Enjoy the read and have a good Sunday!

A Series Of Unwanted Events Agrippa

Four dead crews, a bunch of random shootings, all of The Invisibles members dead (perhaps more visible than they realize) and the shooting is promised to be far from over. A broken friendship, Bullet Factories exchanging hands, more holding spots than serious crews and egos to boot. This story has it all!
