'GHI,LargeCV': Too much power in paired Centaurs(B+N) and Champions(R+N) for only seven ranks. Besides, there are the specific flaws already commented like c- and j-pawns threatened by just one Pawn step. At least it names Carrera's Chess, unlike most other Carrera derivatives, and gives thought to its own castling innovation.
