|Fighting more than one opponent can make for an exciting challange... or a sound beating, depending on the circumstances. The flow of combat is the same as with two combatants, except that each side goes on the offensive or defensive at the same time. The side with multiple combatants will each get their attack at the defender; on the flip side, the single defender will get a swing against each attacker on the offense. This tends to increase the single fighter's fatigue very quickly, unless they are highly skilled. Their offenses also tend not to last long, because the tide turns just as soon as any of their foes counterstrike.|
A many-vs-many situation tends to disolve into smaller one-on-one fights. If the sides are not evenly matched, then one or more people on the less numerous side will find themselves fighting more than one person.
