Editors note Daltonnnn

Welcome to issue #80 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

Not much has happened this week, so we at the Buzz had to do our very best to create, yet another awesome issue for you to read on this fine Sunday morning. The main event of this week has been the shootings and struggles around Enemy of The State and The Phoenix Rebellion. When looking at the statistics page it becomes clear that Enemy of The State obtained a crew spot again, and The Phoenix Rebellion is lost from sight, is this really the last we will ever see from them now that Shitney_ has resigned? Only time will tell.

I want to offer my sincere apologies to the Bootleggers community for not having this story covered this week. Some of our writers were involved in these events and werenít able to cover them in an unbiased way. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the writer claiming this article wasnít able to submit this in time so we will be publishing this next week.

What else have we witnessed this week? The Jess Greenberg Foundation got wiped in the events revolving around The Phoenix Rebellion. We want to welcome Designated Drivers back to the statistics page, and newcomer this round: The Chicago Outfit. We have seen this crew on stats before but not this round so we don't quite know what to expect from them just yet. And at time of this writing, we see Padrinos Palace changing into La Onda, it seems Snaak doesn't want to throw in the towel just yet, but Padrinos Palace does? The Buzz will have this covered next week, as well.

In this week's Buzz issue weíve got columns, columns and columns, which isnít a bad thing if you see these fine ones! ShyGuy wrote about the events revolving the death of R2D2. As most of you know there has been a discussion in game forum about the revival of R2D2 because his killer got banned and ShyGuy felt not all was said about this subject so he wrote a column about it. Also Rob_Stark wrote an amazing article this week about the Organized Crime feature and how this is used by the community, and Liliana6 wrote about the Bootlegging feature and how to revive this dying feature.

It wouldn't be a real Buzz issue if we wouldn't have our weekly returning articles. Check out this weekís Something Old about the Staff Intervention Policy in 2009, or check out The Weekly Joke about some of the staff members. Forum Post of the Week is about the poker feature and the discussion around it. Or check out this week's freelance articles, all the way at the bottom!

My work for now is done and I'm going to spend this fine Sunday elsewhere, enjoy reading this issue, and once again; my apologies for not having the main event covered, we'll make it up to you next week, I promise!

COLUMN: A Dilemma Arrived ShyGuilty

The Weekly Flash Daltonnnn

You don't want to read all the articles? You only want to read a small overview of what happened this week? We give you, The Weekly Flash! Here are this week's main stories:
  • The Rebirth of the Enemy
    A whole lot has happend between Enemy of The State and The Phoenix Rebellion. Not a whole lot has happend this week, but this has! Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we weren't able to cover this due to the absence of the writer who claimed this article. It would result in bad investigating on the Buzz's part to release an article about these events in this issue.

  • Welcome back La Onda, bye Padrinos Palace?
    At the time of this writing I notice Padrinos Palace turning into La onda. This means La Onda doesnít want to throw in the towel just yet, but it seems Padrinos Palace does. Have they sold their crewspot to Snaak, Because it sure isnít a crew takeover? I donít know, Iím just thinking out loud so donít mind me. We donít have time to find out so we will cover this event in next weekís issue!

  • COLUMN: A Dilemma Arrived
    A column written by our beloved ex-editor ShyGuy, about recent events revolving around R2D2 and the ban of his killer.

  • COLUMN: How to revive bootlegging
    We also got a column written by Liliana6 about Bootlegger. We sometimes forget the game is named after a bunch of booze transporting mobsters!

  • COLUMN: Unfair Organization
    Rob_Stark wrote an amazing column about the Organized Crime feature and how this is used by the community!

  • Welcome back Designated Drivers
    A crew which left statistics page recently has decided to give it another go and we now welcome them back as an official crew.
