The year is 2055, more than thirty years after the events of Zero Hour, Earth suffers a catastrophic collision with meteorites. The world is thrown into turmoil as large swathes of land are annihilated. Four factions, the ADF (Asian Democratic Federation), WEA (West European Alliance), WLF (World Liberation Front), and AC (American Confederacy) are at war for control of the remaining already harder to find resources as well as the preservation of their nations and geopolitical interests. Welcome to Deep Impact.

WEA is very similar to RotR's ECA in their approach, aren't they? So many defensive structures and units with defensive abilities.

Read the story or the factions descriptions - it will explain everything. It's also very similar to every other fken faction in the RTS universe that has a defensive gameplay. Out of the hundreds of RTS games that have come out over the last 2 decades - is is possible that ONCE just FKEN ONCE, someone will not compare two mods ?
I understand gamers today were born playn call of duty, but you know turtling WAS NOT INVENTED BY ROTR.

It was a recently released update to a popular mod. It featured a faction that wins its games by turtling. It was a mod made for the same damn game. Someone logically referenced it.

Get over it.

How about this - get your head out of you recent memory *** and stop comparing mods. It offends modders, because it makes it look like 1 is copying from the other, even if that is not implied by the person that makes the comment. There are plenty of brain dead fanboys that will use that comment to start bashing, flaming and down right insulting. I've been modding this game for almost 8 years now, and i'll get over it when people stop comparing 2 fken mods just cause they have some similar ****.
There are games like Company of Heroes that also made the brits ( which is the best equivalent to ECA/WEA ) a turtling faction. No one fken compares to that.

Don't get your panties in a twist now, I was only making the comparision because I find it interesting that people from what I've seen tend to make the European faction into a more defense-oriented one than the rest. I'm not sure how remarking that would in any way offend you.

And I know turtling was not invented by RotR. I'm crazy, not stupid. Easy mistake to make.

I realize it must be frustrating to have your work compared to other peoples' work just because of a few similarities so often. But what's so horrible about that? I'm not accusing anyone of plagurism or anything stupid like that, I just through it was noteworthy that both those European factions share a similar vision in what they should play like.

To clarify: What I find so interesting about that both the European factions from different mods that I mentioned share a similar playstyle is that apparently there's something about Europe that makes people instantly link their military forces to a defensive style. I thought that was pecullier, being myself from Europe and knowing that nowadays our military works nothing like that.
Not to say that I don't like the defensive style European factions. In the contrary, I love them. Just thought it was curious and worth commenting on. Didn't exactly expect the mod author to go bonkers and rage against a bunch of people just because of that.

If you'd read the front page again it mentions that the WEA is oriented in Defense and Mechanized Assault, meaning that defense is not their only playstyle. Why is so many European factions in mods focused on defense? Look at World War II. France had huge fortifications, so did Germany.

Well as Sweedish already pointed out, our history is that of a turtling continent. Since the days of Rome, we've been defending from barbarian attacks, moving to the Ottoman and Russian Empires moving later to WW1/2 that had their share of epic fortifications. Europe is basically full of castles, forts and other defense systems used throughout the ages. Also from the storyline of Deep Impact Europe is a sandwich between the ADF and the AC factions (which is why i pointed at reading the story).
Tl;dr is not really all that interesting, it's more like a thing that defined Europe's military doctrine over it's history as well as the mod storyline.

I know that in Deep Impact's storyline the heavy focus on defence is a natural consequence of the situation for Europe. I just find it interesting that people so often include such an element in the European faction is all.
I guess the fortresses and trenches left throughout history, and the slow battles of attrition won centimeter by bloody centimeter really leave a deep impression on people. Pretty neat theme to keep to.

Anyway, thanks, that's really all I wanted to talk about. I'm very glad the subject could in the end be discussed in a polite and civil manner and I apologize for drawing a comparision to start the topic. I was unaware that it was such a sore spot.

It was not your post that had the bad effect, it was the possible aftermath. After the years of experience with generationX, post like that would just fuel idiot fan boys.

That's the internet for you, I'm afraid. Braindead people accusing other people of stealing their favorite developer's work without any evidence at all will always exist. -_-
