    Sorry just imagine how creepy that would be if the rodent was a human and the cat was some alien predator. You’re walking around the woods when all of a sudden you start to feel all strangely relaxed even though you know predators could be around, then you get surprised attacked by this creature that jumps out of the long grasses.

    It’d be like encountering the hunting grounds of the snake from Jungle Book.

      I'd side with dogs but my cat won't let me and my dog is happy either way. So I vote cats for my own security.

        you can criticize pugs/pug breeding for a lot of reasons, but saying outright that their aesthetics are worse is bogus

            cats _are_ a support class, but they've already played through their storyline and now they're just roaming around grinding. humans work best when they're able to store food, but even in fairly recent versions of Society, our crafting level wasn't high enough to keep the rodent players from organizing successful raids on our bases and stealing it all. without cats guarding the bases, humans would have had to spend more time gathering food and less time developing crafting skills.

                I think this doesn't give fair treatment to the actual support that cat players give to humans in their territory, eliminating disease carrying rodents and protecting food stores. Human players wouldn't have nearly the same amount of territory, or be able to pack their shelters so closely together without cats controlling the rodent populations.

                    The reason many human mains choose a cat as a support despite the parasite is the lower upkeep cost, the lower amount in attention required and the lower amount of space required for the satisfaction of the cat support, since they often venture outside of the home base for fun anyway.

                      I dunno, my cat support was vital for me when I was suffering a bad panic attack. He provided a nice calming aura effect, and his purr ability is top notch.

                          I would argue that it is actually human who is support for cat

                            Cats kill mice. they even present them to the human player as a free exp boost to said human

                              Outside cats are more vulnerable to status afflictions though, so I'd say it's better to go with an inside cat or to befriend a stray, especially if your base is a barn, warehouse, or bodega that needs to be defended against the insect or rodent class.

                                I think the cat mains are just getting a sneaky revenge for what happened with all the ganking against their class in the medieval DLC. The catholic faction really went too far with that. It was a great time for us rat mains, though.

                                  I play my main alongside two Outside build cats, and while we make a pretty effective team, I'd be lying if I said the Outside build wasn't detrimental to the server as a whole. One of my Outside friends got himself into a 1v1 with a Coyote player and almost got a game over. Not only is it not as safe as the Inside build in team comp, but the sheer amount of griefing that can occur from cats onto rodent and smaller bird builds can be enough to cause them to quit en mass, potentially causing a huge server destabilization event. To each their own though, and I don't really want to suggest a different build to my friends when they've already put so many points into their stealth and hunting stats.

                                        Well, I prefer cats since they have a hidden ability, which makes the human patting it much more relaxed, making the human more focused

                                          Cats were higher tier than dogs when the agricultural revolution started and they exterminated rodents that tried to take our grain.

                                                          Random thought: COD has a weird support class; snipers and heavy gunners. These 2 can take out an entire enemy team by themselves if positioned correctly and if they are good enough shots. Compare that to other support classes in other games whose main goal is to aid the other classes. These 2 aid the main objective but only aid teammates by thinning the herd and drawing attention to themselves and unlike support classes in other games, are considered the most dangerous classes in the game.

In reality, while cats may provide a lower morale boost, they are less a support class and more a polymath that can respec into different situations, making them ideal for less orthodox human builds as well as independent roles.

The common house cat doesn’t have the weight advantage, and pouncing leaves it open to grapples, so human mains don’t even need to rely on their superior intelligence stat to win in a fight.
