[Distant Worlds] Record Setting Gathering at Sag A* - True SagA star formation and 50 high wakes!

Last night (Thurs 18th Feb 3302) 6 of us gathered at Sag A* for a screenie. Then I decided to ask some people to come join. Then I posted in all our comms channels for people to come and more and more came. I asked everyone to form a line. Then I thought, why not ask them to form a Star, an ode to Sagittarius A*, didn't think it would happen. Then the 52 men and women who turned up shocked me with their cooperation, organisation, ideas and patience and slowly formed up into a star. After an hour of madness, I asked all 52 to lock on to the same star, charge their hyperdrives with zero throttle and counted down. At zero, 49 CMDRs high-waked (and 1 low waked) out of the system in perfect synchronisation and I laughed so goofily and so hard.

Thanks guys, you made my life! That was the most incredible thing I ever saw in any game ever. I salute you all! o7

FYI we gathered again - on sunday, and smashed the records.

UPDATED WITH SUNDAY'S MEETUP!
Records set:

  • Most recorded CMDRs ever at Sagittarius A* (101 proven - certainly more unconfirmed)
  • Most recorded CMDRs ever in a formation (48)
  • Most recorded CMDRs ever in an instance (101 proven - certainly more unconfirmed)
  • Most recorded CMDRs ever in a synchronised jump (50)

So fitting all these records were made at Sagittarius A*. All I can say is THIS. IS. DISTANT WORLDS.

Here's going to be a collection of all the videos of the event, so please submit them to me and I'll include them in the list. I'm also sticking this in the player achievements directory - anyone disagree? :p

I genuinely squealed at the video. I went all Battlestar for a moment.

That has to rank as one of the best videos to come out of the game.
 
*Sigh* I hate it when the good Waypoints are on Thursdays :)
I missed it as well, although knowing my luck I would have been in an instance on my own anyway. However, there will be another chance 1630 on Sunday as we will all meet up at SagA* prior to the Grande Depart.
 
Wow, so cool... if you guys do this again, try to all jump at the same time :D Engage the drive, but throttle down so it say's "throttle up to engage", and on countdown you all throttle to max :D

Wish I had the time to join this adventure.. good luck on the rest of your journey!

The problem lies with Anacondas and their mass effect.

That's what we did :D
 
Theres no words to describe how annoyed im atm as i missed that..
And therefore im definitely going to be there on Sunday unless a WW3 breaks out, my computer explode or my wife decide that thats the moment when she wants.. ermm.. my special treat. :D
 
Okay. Wow. Jaw dropped, awe inspired, flabber truly gasted. (Even the christmas tree was exited. :) )

Truly glad to be part of this.

How did you get around the 32 CMDR cap in an instance?
Maybe the 64-bit versions have a 64 CMDR cap. :)
