Oh you aren't trying to get them in a line and keep em there, people don't work that way, however in a real world environment you can often get them to be getting in each other's way as they maneuver around the rest of the stuff in the environment as well as each other. So you are trying to make them less effective not eliminate their threat all together. In a wide open space it will definitely be more problematic. However as odd as it sounds the more people there are the easier it is to get them getting in each other's way, especially in tight quarters, but of course you still have multiple attackers with "open shots" as well. The only time I have done more than 3-1 in training though wasn't "to win" it was basically a big time pressure test to help make sure you don't just "give up"
Let me add one additional thing, my school may have an advantage over others. For some training we go to the other side of the Complex where my Sifu has his consultant business and we'll bring down extra folding tables, chairs, sometimes even make cubicles with what we can (putting smaller folding mats on their sides and such)
