Editors note iDaltonn

Welcome to issue #89 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

Luckily after last week’s issue Sky came online to fix my control panel so I could dedicate myself entirely to the Buzz again. So thank you Sky! This week the servers on which Bootleggers is hosted experienced some issues which took them approximately three hours to resolve. Right after Bootleggers came back online it was BSF2000 who created a topic in game forum apologizing for the inconvenience and we appreciate that he takes his time to do so.

This week we also witnessed a few shootings and I wonder what has happened with Bootleggers all of the sudden that everyone decides to take out their gun and wipe innocent crews.. Or do they just appear innocent and are the shooters just eliminating possible threats? We have covered the Designated Drinkers wipe and the elimination of 7 Deadly Sins. These were however not the only crews who got swept off the statistics page. It was also The Infrastructure who met their doom and it was Krillin, a member of The Family, who pulled the trigger. We weren't able to get in touch with Krillin nor the council so we didn't dedicate an entire article to this event.

We have written about the comeback of a crew we surely all heard of before; Bullet Woundz. I personally had an nice little chat with _Keatsy_ about the current state of his crew. Ral_Zarek our Senior writer wrote yet another great column about crimes, wondering how many people actually commit crimes every 2 minutes or so. In his column he shows us a scenario where you crime for two hours every day for a week and the potential money you could earn from this basic feature.

You will be pleased to hear that no one has yet found the correct answer to ShyGuy’s treasure letter. You know what that means right? That means those 1,000 points are still up for grabs! Check out these latest hints and I am sure you will all move a bit closer to the final answer.

I am sure I have lost most of you by now because you sped off and went to check out ShyGuy’s latest hints but I also wanted to welcome back former Buzz writer DelPiero, formerly known as Stow. He has been underground for quite some time now but now he’s back among us gangsters he felt the burning desire to yet again join the Buzz team, and we were of course happy to have him back in our midst!

This week we also present you another returning item called: Top Suggestion of the Week. As the title states, every time the bust spots a good feature suggestion in the game forum, we will publish it! We have requested the option to add a poll to the Buzz so in the future this article could also the option to vote for or against the feature suggestion.

As for now, we at the Buzz wish you all a fine Sunday and happy gaming!

Getting To Know Your Elite Guard - Sky Cyph4

After trying to break the lock, with several failed attempts, we hired a pick-lock to get us in to the closet, where we found Sky, sitting in the corner, like a scene from the matrix, screens all around, coding on every page, with Sky rocking back and forth continuously. It was clear he hasn't had any visitors in a very long time. The Buzz has this exclusive interview with the 'Man Behind The Closet'
