For too long human mains have dominated the meatspace meta

TierZoo is a YouTube channel dedicated to ranking various combatants and highlighting lesser known competitors with strong builds in the high-stakes 3D persistent-world fighting game/RPG hybrid better known as Outside. This cat species tier list is a good introduction to the format, answering important questions like "Are cheetahs low-tier?" and "Are jaguars OP?" posted by Copronymus (11 comments total) 27 users marked this as a favorite
Just a few seconds in, and already "angry cheetah mains" is my new favorite band name.

This really nails the kind of conversations that go on in competitive gaming forums. A friend linked me to the cats video a while back and I've been subbed ever since. Can't wait to see his analysis on whether or not housecats and dogs have the most broken charisma-based builds in the game.

I cannot disagree with the placement of the jaguar, especially when it comes to soloing bosses.

Oh, that's delightful. It just gets funnier as it goes on. Subscribed, and I'll be catching up on all the earlier videos.

Though I don't know, tigers do get extra style points for being the only cat species that still thinks of humans as a regular dinner option.

Also one of the rare youtube channels where most comments are funny rather than appalling or annoying.

I'm only here on a promo gamecode. So I am not going to worry too much about an optimized build.

This is so good. Thank you for sharing.

Ultimately, this a pay-to-win game. Homo Sapiens is basically god mode. Add in the premium 'white skin' custom costume, choose the 'CIS male' premium package, and everything after that is just so much seal clubbing.

/still bitter that they discontinued Thylacine from the Down Under DLC expansion pack....

Humans were really well balanced in the first release, but then they abused the crafting exploit to farm other builds and broke the game. Now they pretty much grief every server. They've even broken the gravity mechanic and escaped the game world completely. The devs need to nerf them or add in new mechanics to give other builds a chance. We all know what happened when the servers were overrun by dinosaur builds in the alpha.
