The minimum goal is 500 players on a single battlefield. I think we will be able to hit 500vs500 but we shall see.[1]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation is designed for solo players as well as large and small groups.[2]

  • The party size is eight (8) players for a single group.[3]
  • Raids will have 40 man groups.[4]
  • Content will be tailored for 40, 16 and 8 person group sizes.[5]
  • Arenas will have 1 man, 3 man, 5 man and possibly 20 man Free-For-All (Deathmatch) group sizes.[6]
    • There won't specifically be guild vs guild arenas but team-based matchmaking allows teams to face other teams.[7]
  • Castle sieges are expected to have at minimum 250x250 players to be on a single battlefield, with the possibility of increasing this to 500x500 over time.[1]

The idea behind an 8-person group is to allow us to really amplify party roles, and to create a need for each of the archetypes in every party.[3]

Content isn't locked behind guilds.[8]

  • Mechanics exist within larger conflicts for small groups and even solo players to impact the battle.[9]
  • This includes systems that will likely focus on single group sized participants while the larger battle is occurring.

Siege participation

Non-registered combatants are not permitted on the siege field in castle or node sieges.[10]

  • The developers are testing methods for restricting non-registered combatants from entering the battlefield.[11]

Players could potentially intercept stragglers with the guild war or flagging system en route to the siege field.[12]

Players may choose to respawn at their HQ as long as they are registered.[13]

Lower level characters will have usefulness in mass combat that does not depend on their level, such as manning siege weapons, helping repair fortifications, bringing proximity-based buffs to key positions, using stealth or scaling walls. These types of things are relevant to the tide of battle and do not require the player to be max-level or have high combat stats.[14]
