Missing description (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]H. G. Muller wrote on 2021-05-16 UTCAs I feared the Shatranjian Shooters are far too strong. I did some test games now with Fairy-Max, and with black they scored 76% against FIDE (100 games). With white they even scored 85% (50 games). The large white-black difference even suggests that theinitial position is not entirely quiet. I also did some tests with individual pieces. The War Elephant is slightly over half a Pawn stronger than a Queen. The Hero is much weaker than a Rook, however; a pair of those were totally annihilated by an army that had Rooks instead. But the Shaman is again much stronger than a Bishop, almost of Rook strength. This army needs to be seriously weakened to make an acceptable CwDA army.
