Can I just call my CA a knight(N) now?
No, you could still promote a pawn to a CA.
Thanks for playing! Perhaps I am overestimating the crippled amazones. It's easy to lose one of them and difficult to position them a Knight's move from each other.
Yeah, I'd say that two are not worth an amazon when put together. I kinda feel this isn't too good of an estimation, but 5-6 points, 3 alone? (~2.5 as knight, +0.5 because of promoting a pawn to a crippled amazon) So taking one means you take about 7 - 9 points. Of course there's all that "specific position changes values" stuff, but this is just general.
Now, a hypothetical scenario-if two crippled amazons are both a knight's move from a third, what can the third one do? Jump?
