Spartans wanted, is this possible?

I got to talking with a fellow Halo player and we came up with the idea of recreating the battle scene from the film 300,

The idea is simple in that we would get 300 spartan players on Halo and a 1000 other players (Persians) to fight against,

Now the tricky part, is it possible? and if so how do i recruit 1300 Halo players?

Or is this just wishful thinking?

If 1300 players cant fit into one server is there a mod to make that possible if not is there a a FPS game that can handle 1300 players online on one server?

It seems that the game will only support up to 16 players in one game....A far cry from what you want to do! You would need mega bandwidth, and a cray supercomputer to achieve what you want!

Could be a goer if you win the lottery :)

Not being a gamer I clicked on this thinking it was a variation of Trojans. :-)

Still working on this idea, looks like we need to setup a modded server.

Yes, one heck of a modded server :) Let us know how you get on!

I thought it was about Terry's Chocolates ;o)

Chocolates? Is there one with Spartans in it's name?

  Brumas 10:24 04 Nov 2007

Terrys of York used to make boxes of Spartan Chocolates - they were plain chocolate and all had hard centres which proved to be extremely popular in our shop at the time. I believe they stopped making them quite a while ago - more's the pity because if I ever eat chocolates I don't much care for the soft centres ;o)

Something I shall bear I shall bear in mind, given the upcoming "chocolate" season.

Sorry wolfie for hijacking this... :)

This is the link to York Museum which has a section all about Terry's. Click on the right-hand forward arrow 4 times and there it is.
