X360A 1000 people online attempt...
 
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...m/nbalive2.gif

We here at X360A are pushing to get 1000 people online at the same time to get the cunningly named "Online with 1,000 people" achievement, worth 100 gamerscore.

Yes we know it has been attempted before, and yes we know it failed. That was due to the short time frame in which was allowed for people to find out-and the fact that this site wasnt involved in organising it of course!!

This is why we have given almost a months notice- so go forth and spread the word!!

The time we are looking at (on Sunday 25th February) is 8PM GMT (England).

So:

8PM GMT
9PM Central Europe
3PM New York (Eastern USA)
Midday California (Western USA)

We have been informed by EA Sports direct that you do not need to be playing a game, but you can just be online listerning to the ESPN radio service. Last time, EA recorded 917 users on their servers- so close, but yet so far!!

We're going to manage it this time tho, we just need help from you guys to spread the word around as many places as possible, to get as many people as possible. The odds are, this will only ever happen once. Be a part of it :p.

And get this showing on your Gamercard!

w00t!

I'll be there :D

Software2 02-01-2007 03:37 PM

This is good news. I'm glad to see some organization. If we even had 100 people dedicated to organizing the event, we would accomplish this. Last time, it seemed like there were about 20 people doing most of the organizing.
If there's any official way I can assist please let me know.

P1NSEEKER 02-01-2007 03:42 PM

Yes get evryone on your friends list involved ;)

Eternal Prince 02-01-2007 03:53 PM

Nice work Minty! We should get it easy this time.

The best way to help is to spread the word in as many places as possible- any other forums, have the logo in your signature and a link to this thread.

Word of mouth is an extrodianary power when it is used.

If any site or anything wants more information, then get them to PM me...

We will of course be spreading the word as far as we can :)

IMportdreams95 02-01-2007 05:25 PM

Im in, lets hope we don't get alot of people to sign up and bail out. We need this to work. So if your serious please post. If you don't show up ill hunt you down and kill you myself! :p

DaKing240 02-01-2007 05:26 PM

Jinksie EPR 02-01-2007 06:11 PM

This will be the best chance of it ever happening, good to give everyone some advanced warning, hopefully i will be able to re-rent this online if not will have to pop to the nearest blockbusters to see if they have it.

Farrmark 02-01-2007 06:17 PM

I'll rent this for that weekend to help everyone out :)

Suffer27 02-01-2007 06:26 PM

Damnnnnn

Damn Damn Damn

|oneyedNewb| 02-01-2007 06:37 PM

Ile be there for damn sure :woop:

CC99999 02-01-2007 07:33 PM

I posted in the A360P forums that we were going for the 25th. I know that there is some bad blood between the two sites- but drastic times like these call for a level of decorum. Let's play football in No Man's Land, fellas. They have 40 or so people ready to do it already!

Software2 02-01-2007 07:34 PM

So, who contacted EA? What was all the info they gave you? Did they say anything about making an official EA anouncement about the event?

ckoch12 02-01-2007 09:16 PM

Im definitely down. With this much time i know we can do it. Tell EVERYONE!!!

kbracing6 02-01-2007 09:41 PM

Yup I'm all in!!! Once again I will be broadcasting this main event abroad!

RisingSun41 02-01-2007 09:41 PM

I just rented the game and am spreading the word to every kid i can about it!

jcarter536@msn.com 02-01-2007 10:53 PM

Im Down And I Got Some Of My Cuzin Gonna Be On 2

eXiled Killah 02-01-2007 11:19 PM

Woot! just got confirmation from gamefly. It's on the way - in the mail!!

Now I hope it doesn't get 'lost':p

The Killer 47 02-01-2007 11:24 PM

The last one was a little spur of the moment, but this time we have some prep time. Glad I have some free rental coupons at Hollywood.

Scotian Bred 02-02-2007 12:41 AM

well this seems wierd but doesn't the desription seem to say be online with 1000 people on EA servers .. it doesn't say be online with 1000 people in the NBA 07 lobby .. i dunno i might have had a brain meltdown but some how i think its the latter .. cause there are always aton of people playing NHL 07 online .. ah well count me in i got my copy out of the garbage anyway at walmart ..LOL i really did !

darquesyde 02-02-2007 12:55 AM

I'll be there, It will be a nice way to enjoy being back from vacation.

Mr Hey 02-02-2007 01:27 AM

I will be at school at the time, will this work:

I leave my console on all day with my profile signed in (will get away status for leaving it on so long without playing), with NBA in it and in the online game modes. Will this give me the achievement?

I think you get booted from the EA servers if you just sit idle, I had a snooze on the last attempt, and had to sign back in when I got up.

I will definately be there again, lets get this done!

As for the multiple account theory, I'm not sure that works. I had 3 signed in, but only one was active on NBA. If I picked up another control, I had to sign the first one out, then go back through the EA sign-in again.

Sign in and leave the 'radio' on. According to EA that would fill the requirements;)
