@Planetside2 Tweeted the following earlier today:

We need your help to break a Guinness World Record! Get all the info here: http://bit.ly/1GRJ2GO

Copy/Pasting the first paragraph from the SOE forum post:

PlanetsideBattles and SOE are very excited to announce an event to cement Planetside 2’s place in gaming history. On January 24th, 2015, at 22:00UTC, we will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for “Most Players Online in an FPS Battle.”

The definition of the record from Guinness: “This record is for the greatest number of players simultaneously (in one single instance) in one server on an online FPS (First-Person Shooter) video game.”

The current record is 999 players held by Man vs Machine, a one off, browser based game created in 2012 specifically to surpass Planetside 1's record at the time.

Our record attempt will consist of approximately 1,100 players and take place on the Jaeger competitive server as a 3 way match on Hossin, pitting each FACTION, not servers, against each other. What this means is that a TR from Connery will be fighting alongside the combined TR populations from all servers; the same goes for the NC and VS.

Damnit! Wish I could join, but it's on my 30th birthday, and I'm having friends over for some beer.
I hope it will be a blast if you get in

As far as I can tell from the email, nobody got in from SAS.

Never heard of 99% of the names on the list anyway

Nah - looks like only the big boys got in. I see our old ally Emitzdevil made the cut, but the rest of the names are pretty foreign to me. Saying that, how much attention do you really pay to NC names? I must say I know plenty of enemy names due mostly to being repeatedly Pwn3d like a n00b - curse that death screen...

Would have been fun to be part of it - I might watch the stream if I'm about, but TBH I think we actually break the World Record all the time, they're simply trying to make it official.

Good luck to all involved, I say.

Higby apparently tweeted that they had broken the world record more than 70,000 times since release, so I guess they thought it was about time to make it official lol
