Initial rebel gains[edit]

Ausferilandian/Zolevskoyan counterattack[edit]

Volgarian intervention and continued stalemate[edit]

Strategic importance[edit]

According to the Ausferilandian government, Hauptplatz remains a strategically vital city to hold due to the capital of Acre being the next city the rebels will attack if it falls. For this reason, the Ausferilandian military has diverted most of it's attention to preventing Hauptplatz from falling, while also maintaining it's defense of other areas which could be used to surround the city.
