I am still playing the opening moves in one of these games. However, I've noticed that the knights are immediately under attack from the bishops from the very first move (provided a central pawn is pushed,) and once they're captured the bishops immediately threaten to capture the smothered rooks. Also, they're only protected by the two new major pieces.
