You can create a wide shot with a locked-off camera and then moving your crowd (let's say, first to the left, then middle, and then right third of the screen) in separate passes and then creating one big shot using soft split screens, although you may need to do a little roto work. Again, the more people you have, the easier it will be.
In terms of the tighter shots, it just depends on how many people you can get. Lower angles will help hide the lack of people in the distance -- you need enough people to fill the background behind the principle people in the foreground fighting. If you have one hundred versus fifty people versus twenty people, this will affect how wide you can ever shoot the fighting.
