I have tested this game and I find it really good. Personally, I prefer an Archer less powerful, but the game goes well with the selected pieces. At first view, the Shield may look as a piece that can´t fit well in the game, but once you have tried the game a couple of times, you like this piece, it acts a s a good balance to the attacking pieces, and the result is a game that is not as violent as Rococo, neither as defensive as Ultima, although the game tendence is still attack over defense, so it is much more close to Rococo than to Ultima. The openings are not irrelevant: some of them are very bad, others are good, but I have not detected openings that offer an absolute advantage to one team or the other if both are playing reasonably well, this game can develop an interesting openening theory, although openings can only prevent against quick strong attacks, you can´t say much about the results of the game because, as other games in this class, the game is very deep and strategy is a difficult task, and on the other hand, checkmate the King in this game is not so easy, King is a piece less vulnerable than in Rococo, due the presence of the Shield. Interesting game!.
