Stock is too tryhard
git gud

agree on the other 2 though
How you make Alarm Clock Pizza is:
Step 1: You buy an alarm clock from the store, and then you have to break it and put it in the sauce.
Step 2: Fold the sauce in 5 slices and put it in the dough.
Step 3: Paint the eggs with a pitcher of a clock showing what time you want to wake up and eat pizza for breakfast.
Step 4: Put the eggs in the dough.
Step 5: Make it flat into a round shape and draw the time you want on it.
Step 6: Put some old steel to prevent other peple from stealing it.
Step 7: Make it flat and cut into 60 slices 1 for each minute in 1 our.
Step 8: Put in the oven set the timer to 30048813.2884 seconds and put the temperature on 'Volcano' setting.
Step 9: If you think it is take to long, then get yor alarm clock and set it to now so that it will ring and you can take it out.
Step 10: Take it out uv the uvin wen it is redy and go to bed. In the morning eat pizza and also eat yor hands bi mistake.

Meh... I've tinkered with it some. I just can't get into it. I may just need some inspiration.

Flail Ram vs Wram Popup?  Pseudo Crawlers?  Moar Razorz?  What else is there to build in DSL-S?  Even FSnS and TRFBD are not competitive anymore.

Pretty sure at least the former two get soft countered by TRFBDs, but if you say so. I missed most of the flail ram stuff that came up (I assume this is why ty4er is now considered the worst DSL builder ever) and I haven't seen any pseudo crawlers, but that's just due to me being absent for 8 month intervals.

if you ban flail and razors, those bot types are pretty much killed, that should help with variety, and at this point, it's pretty much the only thing to keep DSL-S from disappearing completely

Ban razors and you nerf a lot more than popups. Banning flails and generally popups though does open the field somewhat.

I think it'd be better to ban specific bot types and configurations.

I know I've been around for quite a while now, but I'm still thinking the DSL-S metagame is pretty freaking broken. This has gotten noticeably worse with how much we can break the game. Sheesh, maybe these problem could be avoided if there are specific restrictions in a ruleset that can make bots look like they would participate in BBEANS2. I don't know.

Shoutouts to DSL for lasting until 2014 without becoming a broken mess whilst with IRL it took 3 tournaments for people to realize drums and VS are bawked.
