Editors note Daltonv7

Welcome to issue #87 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

This week we witnessed a shooting, mostly low ranked players that had lived a long life already. as well as some higher ranked accounts throughout the game. Various crews got hit as well and before they could even think of taking revenge, they noticed the shooter got banned. Highprotein shot and killed 57 accounts before the staff decided to ban him and rumors of boosting new accounts began to pop up. At the time of publishing this issue, the ban appeal is still pending and I am sure a lot of people are dying to find out whether or not the ban holds up.

Youn wanted everyone to have some fun so he launched a puzzle for us all in the Off topic forum. He told us in the topic that he would reveal both answers, name the winners of the puzzle and mention the participants of an upcoming dice game. Fifty-two contestants were able to guess the correct red answer, each receiving a stunning $133,337. But that was not the only prize, the grand prize of 500 points could only be won by entering a dice game. You had to earn a spot as a contestant in the dice game by guessing the correct yellow answer and I can tell you that fifty-four people will be entered in the dice game giving everyone a 1,85% chance on winning!

Youn wasn’t the only Help Desk Operator this week who decided he wanted to give away some points, also ShyGuy informed the Buzz early on in the week that he was creating one of his hardest riddles yet to date in order to celebrate his one year anniversary serving the Help Desk. If you are wondering what the grand prize is, I can tell you it’s a slamming thousand points for the first one to come up with the right answer! Is it a word? Is it a sentence? Is it a number? I don’t know! I have already tried my best at figuring out the right answer, but it seems nearly impossible. I hope someone proves me wrong! If the riddle hasn’t been solved by next week’s issue, the Buzz might reveal a hint or two.

Let me ask you something. Swiss bank, do you use it? I actually do and Rickon_Stark wrote a column about it this week, wondering if we use this feature in the way intended by the staff. Always some interesting stuff from our very own Senior writer. Last week we published an interview with one of the green guys; Mika. This week Cyph4 continues to bestow the Elite Guard with questions as Aldarion sat down in the hot seat. Maybe you can find out things about him you didn’t know? I would also like to introduce you to our newest Buzz writer: Element. He has been a writer with us before and I'm for one are happy that returned to write another day.

Last but definitely not least, we have got our weekly items such as: The weekly joke, this time about someone joining the army because he would like to on an adventure like Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. 'Something old' features an article by iAldo, written about the war between The Black Horde and The Family, both giving some inside information about their crew structure. After exactly one year I think we all know who won that war. Forum Post of the Week is about a hilarious topic in the Off topic forum about introducing your girlfriend to Bootleggers.

Enjoy!
