First Last : The choices are too obvious, this meme needs balancing.

E D : I dont think the person who made this understands how large 10,000 is

Omar Miller : Lmao, its hilarious how much thought goes into this

Brenton Taylor : You could just use one rat. *_If it carries the "Black Plague" status, that will kill everything else_*

Theodore Yamada-Dessert : I'm so impressed with your ability to plug your sponsors haha

Christopher Williams : So, the Lions would use guerrilla warfare against the gorillas

Dr. Alias : But, what if the eagles team kill? Ten thousand rats sounds like a lottery prize to a eagle

Underlord 26 : More balanced: -10 eagles -500 rats

Terraraptor1 : For a potential future video, if you had to pick a team of D and F tiers to take on a team of A and S tiers, which builds would you pick and why?

RoboLamp : The UI has gotten ridiculously fantastic over the episodes! The way the lines open up and stats rise doesn't go unnoticed!

Depressed Nazi : Tierzoo's guide to getting a #1 Victory Royale.

BonJoviFanboy : Everyone is assuming this would be a fight out in a specific location. It's not. The meme just says the rest are coming to kill you. Most people live in urban environments with roofs over their heads, doors, etc... Depending on where you live, crocs are the WORST pick due to no water. Lions lose their stealth ability and, honestly, are quite weak with just 4. Bears are too few in number to matter, as are gorillas. Staying indoors would protect you from the eagles, and pretty much everything on this list, save the rats. Not to mention, people are REALLY underestimating the number 10,000. it seems most people have no idea just how many this is. For the reasons explained above, the 2 options you MUST pick are the rats and the human. The rats must be picked for the simple fact that their numbers are overwhelming. They can get into urban environments in stealthy ways, and there is not a single group on this list that could engage them in battle and win, not with those numbers. The human must be picked because, again, look at the environment. In the meme, the human is in shadow. You don't know what they look like. You would have to be cautious against every single human you interacted with for the rest of your life, since they could EASILY assassinate you at any given time. This is impossible; they'd get you. If you pick the human, he can consistently bring down the other animals slowly but surely, with the rats providing an impenetrable barrier. If he stays inside, the eagles also can't do much. For these reasons, the rats and the human are the true top tier picks.

C and J Haupt : A perfect example of how terrible humans are with intuition and numbers. Thankfully with Brilliant...

An Account : Before watching I’d say eagles and rats Edit: holy shit got the s tiers! Edit 2: my thought process for anyone questioning me, eagles are kind of obvious, the have good damage and are the only aerial build, and my reasoning for the rats was simple, there’s so many that you do much! No chance of killing them fast enough due to numbers, and once they get to you there’s a quick mobility rebuff that can stop you from doing much along with passive damage of nips. In conjunction you can’t take either of them down fast without taking heavy damage.

da fairei : wait.... when tf did you reach 800k, last time i remember 200k or something

Alan Choi Chang : the best option is the eagles... specifically, hotel california.

Ethan Hall : Wow. Finally somebody that can logic.( P.S. Great Job You should do this more often!)

Tonsor Senpai : You forget that the bull can actually be ridden

Quincy Gaming : That looks like a single barrel shotgun and is absolutely not a bolt action rifle lol

D2ultima : TierZoo is now my life. The bell has been hit. Videos are watched same-day.

Blaze Fox : My team would be a fox (me), 15 wolves, and a human excluding any other players who decide to join my team.

Carlos : I'd put the bulls higher if you don't stand there. Just take the bulls + hawks and run and outpace the attackers, the rats can't keep up with you and when the lions + wolves close in on you the bulls can attack them, bulls used to devastate lions in arenas. Also as deadly as the rats are, a speeding bear or lion might get you before the rats can swarm them since they're extremely fast.

Cromwell Castaneda : TZ: Next, we have the bull--- (gets bashed) Bull: *u w0t m8*

Megar_ Potato : If the human has a different weapon, perhaps a minigun or a flamethrower (area control), would it change the outcome?

Reaction Face : Are you gonna talk about the parasite meta?

BurnestThe4th : 10000 rats and 15 wolves please!

Underlord 26 : Human and eagle then sit in a tree until others starve

Yotam Pinhas : I think penguins are hard counters for rats.

Shadowedmecha : Rats + eagles = legion time. FIGHT MY PLAGUE CARRIERS AND SKY WEAPONS MUAHAHAHA

MisterMustachio GMC : Hey, TierZoo, are we gonna hear anything about the Chernobyl meta?

RTP : Men and wolf is the only match really tested, and succeeded, on this list... and still, somehow, time proof. Simple the best! Cheers!

Wolf Lordy : *giant eagles come to save the day* God damn it Gandolf why didn't you do this sooner?!?!

Mein Tortzuhrwelt : I like the way, you pay tribute to your "true facts" predecessor by the choice of music...

Brio Brio : Rats death by a million paper cuts....

Hyrule Legend : How the hell are your sponsorships so smooth, especially since you're a recent YouTuber

omae wa mou shindeiru NANI!! : But the problem is... *_The Best teammates_* Doesn’t exist..

Ernie Larkin : Really the general meta in the free to play is a Man dog pairing. Some famous gold farmers have used Tigers and lions. One team had two human males and large group of lions and tigers but they were banned from the sever for cheating. The man and dog pairing has been used to change the way the entire game is played and accessible to most players.

shahaman noodah : After watching this I would love to see hundreds of rats attacking a bear while eagles dive bomb it continuously.

lazerbeam134 : This challenge was designed by someone who plays the Relentless Rats deck in M:TG

Ducky Duck : I think wolves are better than rats. As you mentioned in the video wolves are great at crowd control. Perfect counter for the rats. The other animals would be overwhelmed by the eagles alone. EDIT: Nvm I just realized how much 10,000 rats is.

Auxified : I'd like to propose a different team comp. I would select select Eagles + Human. Of course this is largely arena dependent, but many here are being distracted by the massive volume of rat players in their assessment. The critical flaw in the rat class is their low intellect, and low mobility. Maxing out at 8mph, and with too low of an intellect for players to coordinate an assault I believe the rats are a null factor on either offense or defense, as they can simply be avoided (especially by eagles who are immune to rat class, in the same way earthquake doesn't hit skarmory unless it uses roost that turn). Discounting the rats, there are 44 potential threats to the VP, and 50 eagle players. The objective of the eagles will be to threaten, stall, and potentially eliminate any of these 44 players. The objective of the human player will be to use his hunting rifle to eliminate any of the 44 that slip past the eagles, and get too close to the VP, while the two run away from the rats. In summation, it is difficult to understate how overpowered the human class is. It probably deserves its own tier of SS or even SSS at this point. EDIT: I'd also like to mention that the rats could be a detriment to the aggressor team because the other 44 players need to run around them unless they get a head start.

vapormissile : Can the players spawn offspring? If the eagles can carry the rats up into treetops or other inaccessible regions, then players could train their characters into airmobile combined units. An eagle could transports several rats, and the rat players could EASILY use their intellect to transfer the buff to the eagle players. Thousands of rats training, guarding the eagles' roosts, & digging earthworks while observing might confound the other player. A rat rides an eagle, scouts the approaching hordes. The eagles move the rats away from the other players. Send a kamikaze unit against the sniper. This puzzle is scary.

Bibsquid 707 : I chose the bulls because I like cows too much to be against them.

Reece A : Man and the wolves are the best combo. Hands down. Anyone who says otherwise is stupid. Edit: btw I didn’t watch the vid before commenting

J Brown : Got to have the rats on your side always

Conor Norris : i would take the rats and use them to open a ratatouile restaurant chain once i have the power of true flavor on my side i will be invincible

Jack Maid : Oh damn I was right! I guess I am not as stupid as I thought

Hyurno : Ok but what if the rats go afk

BlackStar : Well Magic: The Gathering taught me one thing: The more rats you control, the more damage the individual rat can cause. With that in mind this decision is truly not hard, in fact I wouldn't even need to pick a second animal, because the rats would just one shot everything before it gets to me (maybe not the birdos, but I can just lay on the ground and let the rats attack as soon as the eagles want to attack me). And some people say playing MTG and other games is "a waste of time" xd
