'ABC' Large-CV thread: Charles Gilman's Comment here is concerned with the naming. I would cite the 13 piece-types in making strategy difficult to picture. Having different moving and capturing capabilities for three of them results in effectively dealing with 16 piece-type-moves. 16/100 (= 16%) for piece-types is rather unfriendly to players. However, the mix of FIDE types and exotic pieces is usually good practice.
