    We don't really know yet. Anything below 100 people is small to medium scale. You need 100s of players to be large scale pvp.

    Well considering the game is a PvP mmo no matter how the devs try to promote pve to cash in there will be constant PvP. Given this I would say it's going to have pretty large PvP.

    How does this answer OPs question?

    What number is "pretty large PvP"?

    Doesn't matter how large they say it will be it will always be smaller. Usually how it goes anyways. There's not only the issue of rendering hundreds of players with decent graphics at acceptable framerates on the client but also the bandwidth limitations of the servers.

    Haven't seen a game that consistently supports over 100 players on a battlefield. Doubt this will be different.

    Ryzom experienced 200 - 300  PvP over Outposts (in its heydays)  and  (with lower FPS) Darkfall Online  had also some massive Battles (500+).

    If I'm correct the devs were aiming at about 200 players per battle in the bigger ones. I doubt we'll get anything close to that with decent performances, but considering small (10v10) to medium (50v50) is already fun in CF imo, it's not a huge issue.

    Once they bring back structure destruction and siege weapons, as well as adding all the pets, mounts, thralls, caravans, etc. a 50v50 battle will feel massive enough I bet.

    I think that's a pretty reasonable estimate.  I don't see them being able to get enough performance out of Unity modifications for "hundreds" of players and destruction, but 50v50 sounds plausible.  Personally, I think it's a shame that it probably won't go much above that, but I won't be at all surprised.

    There's a reason CU built their own engine specially designed for large-scale battle.

    Yea, CU engine should handle large battles with great performances. We'll see how far they can push it though, what they've tested so far with the bots is pretty different than in the  real game with real players. The drawback is that most of the 4 years of development were focused on this engine and now they've still got plenty of complex MMORPG systems to build (The Depths, mobile islands, underground bubbles, caravans, roads, crafting, balancing, etc.).

    The current numbers on PvP seem fine, too much can be messy, action spots spread across are much  better.

    Camelot Unchained's custom engine does twice that at long view ranges too. Pretty neat tech. No idea if they will ever get to beta though
