I had to look up what or where Commonwealth of Independent States is located.. It's basically the former USSR. I kind of feel Russia falls into the Europe category.
EU and CIS playstyles are generally very different. CIS is generally more aggressive.
Yeah, I just never heard of CIS before. Had to look it up to see it was part of former USSR and it's satellite countries.
