We are getting closer to our ideal for the game, which is to create a turn based strategy/tactical sandbox environment, where the players can build any type of board & layout. Including 1 VS 1, 2 VS 2 etc
We just finished building chess pieces into the legions at war engine. This allows for epic variations on the old classic. The pawn has an en pass-ant en double movement special ability which can be used any time. We also built unique abilities & modes for all the classic chess pieces giving them a variety of ways to attack and defend.
The rook, bishop and queen chess pieces are however very powerful when compared to the other legions at war pieces as they can move from one end of the board to another. On a large board of 26 X 26 this is a huge advantage. We will thus re-design all the chess pieces with a modern look to fit within battleground of Legions at War.
