The Mass joining of 2011 was the culmination of several things that caused RSA's numbers to explode from under 300 to over 1500. It spanned about a week in late July/early August 2011, and many say the group has been going downhill since, being overrun with noobs.
It began when "Tests" by Aerideyn made its way to the front page of the Games page, and, being a walking advertisment for RSA, starts people joining to access special things like the RSA Teleporter and stuff, as well as people with genuine interest in space, and plenty of noobs.
