My apologies for this typo.

We've been playing on this version of the map for two years (including the last two WBCs where about 20 people played it) and we never spotted it.

The blame for this is mine alone.

Bummer Nick, wish somebody had caught it. Oh well. Setting up for my first crack at the game now.

I would never have known it was a typo had I not read about it here.

Good catch.

I don't care if I did p500 this for four years... I want my money back

Just kidding. Great game, probably a bit more fun as the VM.

French female names. Supposedly, the many girlfriends of de Castres, the commander of the camp, and an infamous womanizer. Funny that his girlfriends had alphabetical names.whistle

Later, renamed strong points broke the tradition.

Map patch? Youre only missing an 'e' at the end of Eliane.
