oh yes i agree, 'zhouxia' is crap, the destroyerqueen is way too powerful. it is way too powerful, cause it plays against much weaker pieces. i think i have come a long way since then. still, it is all relative, the pieces i made in 'fallingsnow' make the 'destroyerqueen' look like a walk in the park, but i think 'snow' works, because of the super defence given by all the generals, and mainly, because basically all the pieces are very powerful, therefore no piece is way too strong over the others in that game. i don't think that some piece is just too powerful, period. it is not a 'black and white' thing, it depends on other pieces, and the way the game is constructed. i must admit though, i now have a passion for much weaker pieces.
