Editors note Daltonv7



Welcome to issue #85 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

What an amazing week have we witnessed these past few days, unbelievable! But what could we expect from a game that is celebrating its tenth year anniversary? With the recent activity of our Head Administrator BSF2000, I’m sure no one could have anticipated the arrival of a video clip in the Game Forum. As unbelievable as it seems, Kyle, also known as BSF2000 took it upon himself to share some if his thoughts about the past ten years of Bootleggers in a twenty six minutes during video. This can be found in the Game Forum, but also here in this fine issue, because we couldn’t let this one go by without publishing it in the Bootleggers history books better known as the Buzz.

First, let me say thank you to TheWridgees for this banner above! Appreciated. What else have we got in store for you today? ShyGuy has yet again proven himself to be a writer with a strong opinion in this week's column: 10 Years & 2 Differences. In this piece you will read all about the past ten years, and Shyguy’s view on this period. I took it upon myself to write an article about the tenth year anniversary, it is filled up with everything you know already, but we also provided with some things you didn’t know already so I suggest you check this one out.

Our latest writer iCypha, who got killed in a Russian Roulette this week and is now known as Cyph4, wrote about the recent promotions on the states page. A lot of rank ups from Legendary Dons to State Dons occurred and we at the Buzz want to congratulate each and every one of them! We welcome not only the State Dons, no Sir. We also welcome our newest Nation Don: DevillSpawN. What is so special about this Nation Don you ask me? Well, he already made it to the highest position twice before, this making his third time! Am I the only one who thinks this guy deserves a freakin’ medal?

Bran_Stark, who also got killed this week, wrote a column about the mini games, which are available to play whilst being in jail. Amongst Snake and Space Invaders, you can also play Tetris. Bran_Stark actually wanted to do a competition, but soon discovered that the high scores are all time high scores, and not weekly scores. Also, don’t forget about out weekly items! Behind The Name with nirvana00100 who is a huge movie fan, just like me! Liliana7 (Yes, she also died this week.. It was a very bad week for the Buzz team) did this week’s Once Upon A Time, going back all those years and bringing you all those memories, and Game Statistics and Obituaries as always.

The final thing I decided to publish this week, is the old Buzz Issues from rounds 3 & 4, as provided for by BSF2000. Enjoy!




Column: 10 Years & 2 Differences ShyGuiro

The Weekly Flash Daltonv7



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:
  • Suspect Zero got wiped!
    And many other accounts got killed as well. 98 accounts died by the hand of AnnaKendrick and possibly other unknown shooters. The statistics tells us that bullets dropped 1,5 million, while AnnaKendrick used 2,168,000 bullets during this action, failing on one account. After a few hours he shot again, and killed the final member of Suspect Zero thereby dropping the crew spot. After this, AnnaKendrick created the crew: Fernando Torres Fanclub.

  • Kyle showed himself!
    Unbelievable but true, BSF2000 which we can now call Kyle, because he finally introduced himself to everyone, made a 26 minutes during video, sharing his thought about the past 10 years. Pandie’s opinion about the video: “i would do nawtee nawtee nawtee things to that guy ... he has that look, i cannot help it.”

  • 10 years anniversary!
    In order to celebrate this anniversary, we received special events for over a week, ending in a spectacular day willed with Russian Roulettes and Organized Crimes. The editor took it upon himself to write about this.
