I haven't even posted any dsl-s bots or IF bots so how can you know I'm bad at it .

Also I think DSL-S started as IRL but people kept building better bots until they were barely realistic. Then IRL became popular as a counter to what DSL had become
Guess who's back

Oldest IRL builder I can remember is Pressure.  Every BBEANS tournament he was in (starting with the first one in, what, 2004?), he'd come out with a really nice-looking but ultimately non-competitive machine.  If anybody "invented" it, I'd say it was him.
