    Pretty sure Tardigrades were a joke build that the Devs included in the game to sucker newbies. Like, Snail and Slug players totally body Tardigrades all the time, their K/D ratio in the Gastropod/Tardigrade matchup is just ridonkulous!

    "the most resilient organism in the universe" you mean the world? Because there could be (and probably are) organisms more resilient than the tardigrade.

    I think the main test of tardigrades' survivability is to lock them in an enclosed space for a year and show them The Room on a constant loop.
