 Lugdunum Game List Revision
The Game List at the Lugdunum Server has evolved considerably over the last year or more, mainly due to requests and innovative game design suggestions from many players, to the point where there are now about 40 series defined in the full list.
Therefore, it seemed appropriate that at least some of the games available to newcomers to the Lugdunum server should be as similar as possible to games they might have played on other more popular servers, so two of the Beginner series, Raw Recruits and Winless Wonder, had visible builds.
The advantages to the fairness and speed of games in having your build orders hidden from other players until after the update has taken place seem to have been widely accepted, and the majority of public servers available now support the feature.

 from Lougdounoum to Lugdunum (bad English Version)
No oppidum traces was found at this time but it seems to me doubtful considering the strategic position of the city (with the confluence of the Rhone and the Saone on one of the largest commercial axis) than Eduens (and yes still them; -)) neglected this places.
