Editors note ShyGuyXVII

Welcome to Issue #73 of the Bootleggers Buzz

Ladies and gentlemen, we got a new feature on Bootleggers; Achievements! We had to wait a few months, but this week BSF2000 decided to finally launch the new feature. It looks awesome, but I believe the feature is not fully optimised. We at the Buzz wrote an interesting article about the new feature including the opinions of some random players and the opinion of the Elite Guard. This week we also witnessed three new State Dons! On behalf of the entire Buzz Team; congratulations! Anything else happened this week? Yeah, a massive shooting!

It has been a few weeks since we witnessed a shooting of The Family or Asura, but this week we finally witnessed their ‘return’. The shooters, prismatic and Sidewind, were able to kill approximately 150 players. A big amount, but nothing compared to the amount of points they used; 42,000 points (search money excluded). An impressive shooting and the Buzz had a fancy interview with the killers! Any other shootings this week? Not really, it was a pretty boring week at Bootleggers!

This week our current Nation Don, RGT, decided to enter the vacation mode. The result? A big uproar on the Game Forum and that eventually resulted in an amazing column about the current ‘vacation feature’. Fortunately that is not the only column, because we have way more columns. Daltonn wrote an interesting article regarding a gambling Bootlegger and our new writer, Riverpenguin, wrote an article about a possible reset. That is it? Nu-uh, we also have a column about crew names, written by avin. Finally we have the last game of Guess the Whereabouts and, as always, the weekly articles.

This issue has it all; we covered all the news and we wrote some amazing columns. Do you believe you also have the ability to write such articles? Do you have some spare time left during your vacation? Do you want to contribute something to the community in a positive way? The Buzz is always looking for writers, so do not hesitate to write an application. Write an article of approximately 400-600 words about a subject of your choice and you might find yourself sky blue at the users online. Anyway, that is it for this week. Enjoy this week’s issue and have a good Sunday! Ciao!

Crew Names avin

Crews on Bootleggers have always been inspired by real life trends, from The Regulators, which might have spawned from the legendary Stephen King Book to the present La Onda, which brings back memories of Mexican Counterculture in the 60’s and the movie Blood In Blood Out. Crew names have undergone a sea change over the years and many players old and new seem to agree.
