Hi everyone, welcome to TierZoo, the web show which seeks to analyze the meta to determine the best current builds. I talk about the special abilities and build strats of various prominent animal classes and show people things they may have overlooked when specing their character.

Okay but actually my goal is to get gamers interested in zoology, since there's a ton of amazing aspects of life on Earth that go underappreciated. Evolution has produced some bizarre traits, strategies, and life cycles that I feel need to be given the spotlight once in a while. I don't shy away from keeping the brutal with the beautiful, so if you're new to my content, be warned. Expect two videos per month. The good thing about my topic is that there's potentially limitless content and I'm more than willing to provide it. Hit me up with all of your suggestions! I've gotten some amazing ones so far.

    I don’t even understand the appeal of the game if you don’t play bird. You have some of the best skins in the game, you can play play any server (Antarctica’s not even worth playing if you’re not bird) I main parrot for the social aspect. Also, hummingbird is a great experience if you learn to play small animals. Taking away the efficient metabolism of larger classes makes for unique gameplay.

    As an orca main, im calling for humans to be banned, before its to late. Im worried that the devs have waited to long to ban them and the humans might be able to unban themselves when the devs try. I don’t think the Covid-19 virus was meant to be a ban but just reduce there numbers and nerf them but the humans overcame this with the vaccine. If they don’t do a dinosaur level ban soon they might be able to overcome this.

    Surprised that Gulls didn't get mentioned - especially since fotage of them was even shown when talking about "better scavengers in human servers than pidgeons" and playing to the meta (aka heavy humanization of many servers) should be encouraged if you want to minmax. I feel like they might actually be contenders for the fourth S tier bird build. Albatross I feel like also deserved at least a mention. They go exact opposite way of gulls, by populating a server that is hostile to humans (the high sea) and don't have a natural predator there. Of course like the Rattites that have to breed on the ground they suffer somewhat there, having to visit at least small islands for breeding. But since they can pick islands without/with few predators and form groups for some protection when respawning the weakness is far less pronounced and should land them in low A or high B tier.

    Humans are weakened by constant PvP reducing numbers. For example, the ww1 event saw 17 million players reach a game over, a devastating amount of in game casualties. Also with the Corona patch of 2020 it seems likely for humans to be replaced as the sole dominating force in the meta. I believe the humans will have another giant decrease in population due to human factions provocation as well as pleas for new events and updates from the Devs. Certain players could stop this. For example German and Austrian factions attempt to not follow in the steps of earlier players such as the infamous Hitler, Kaiser Wilhelm and Franz Josef

    human data miners have found that elephants actually get debuffed when being mounted, as their spines are not optimized to carrying people on their back. they could still carry stuff below them, but that's awkward for humans to use. i think it's clear at this point in the meta that humans should not rely on elephants for support, as often the humans end up griefing them, intentionally or not. however there are human support builds (which i thought this video was talking about) that are beneficial to elephants, especially in situations where some elephant high level players disconnect early before they can share strats with new elephant players

    Wait, wait, wait, ALL large ratites are in F tier? Why? Sure, Ostriches can get killed by Cheetah packs, but those only form if several males from the same litter survive to adulthood, and since Cheetah cubs have an incredibly high mortality rate, this is quite rare. A lone Cheetah will stay well away from an adult Ostrich, as will Hyenas, Leopards and even Lions. The ratites signature move is kick, which is quite strong in Ostriches and Emus and downright broken in the Cassowary since they specced into more dagger-like claws. As for the disadvantages of being a ground nester, ratites compensate to some extent by laying quite large clutches which they gaurd fiercley and having chicks that can run and hide well soon after hatching. You also stated that penguins probably only survive because there are no land predators in antarctica. First of all, penguins can also be found on the galapagos islands, australia, and the capes of africa and south america. Second, two of the five antarctic and sub-antarctic species (Adelies, Chinstraps,Emperors,Gentoos and Kings) are considerd near-threatened. Third, they have a low respawn rate, laying two eggs per clutch at most. Common Ostriches, Emus, and Australian Cassowaries on the other hand live in africa and australia, which you have designated as hard-core servers several times, and all of them are considerd least concern. So I would say they can firmly establish themselves in B and C tier Ironically, a weakness you completely forgot to mention, and which I consider to be the real reason that ratites are not top-tier builds, is their rather low intelligence. PS: I am not writing this comment to discorage or make fun of you, I am merley asking you to reconsider in this point. PPS: Congrats if you read the whole comment! Have the very nice day random person!
