Hippos are one of the most polarizing builds in the African meta, but are they truly overpowered?

    Hippo's have a HUGE weakness, they can dry out, and when they do (dry out) their skin cracks like a lakebed! It only takes 24 hours, which makes them almost like amphibians in a way. Really big de-buff for crossing land to get to new rivers, and surviving droughts. And they have no solution for this issue in a drought, like some amphibians and lung fish which can form a cocoon to protect themselves for a limited time.

      @Achailo Generally yes, but they will actively predate on other animals and this is not a few freak cases, its a widespread phenomena. On technical grounds I'd say they're generally herbivores but not strictly herbivores(tier zoo makes clear that hippos are strictly herbivorous. This is not true.). It is a reasonably rarely observed behavior, but it must be acknowledged that most hippos can and will kill and eat other animals. And will kill other animals with the intention of eating them.

    Piranhas are absolutely no threat to hippos - you must be joking. Manatees, the closest equivalent South America has to a hippo, share their habitat with piranhas no problem and yet are nowhere near as dangerous or tough as hippos - lacking their armour, tusks and aggression. In fact, piranhas are overhyped in general. Unless they're under extreme stress or starvation, they're not even that dangerous to people (unless you're a helpless child or incapacitated) with most "attacks" being opportunistic bites to hands or feet.
    Hippos on the other hand have no natural predators in South America. People here commenting about anacondas and jaguars seem to forget that Africa has different variants of these species that still pose little to no threat to hippos. In fact, the only real danger to hippos in Africa (outside of humans) is droughts and weather conditions that control their population. They wouldn't even have this problem in South America with its high-rainfall areas and large rivers. Read up on Pablo Escobar's hippos and see how successful they've been in Colombia for example.

    Exploits like these are pretty rare in the current meta. Hippos should be banned, the devs don't want to do anything about them.

    I think the Human player faction could impose a community ban using their abilities to camp respawns until hippos stop playing.
