Has any extensive research been done into how values change when the board is expanded to 10x10? 1) How much weaker do the stepper atoms become? 2) Does the ratio of power between rooks, bishops and knightriders change? If so, which pieces become weaker and which become stronger, and by how much? 3) How much is a 3,1 rider or 3,2 rider worth?
