Even though Q,R,B, and N have more power individually most ways you slice it by piling up random board arrays helter skelter in the usual CVPage practice and then computing power densities and such for large-sample averages, still these are about even Unequal Armies, because of the same win condition's of Quang Trung applied to both sides favouring the more coherent force. F.I.D.E. forces are rudderless because there is less for force mid-distances, Vu Q Vo would claim, to shepherd the Pawns to some winning rank. Guerrilla war. Pawn at final rank becomes a Conway Angel that has to be captured immediately.
