Components used for OW4:
DSC's packs
Battery Fixes
Beta Fixes
Coloured Typhoons/Beaters
Coloured Bars
Coloured Frenzy Hammers
Coloured Slippers
Fixed NPCs
Badnik's Disc Covers

Woah... Fixed batteries, fixed Betas, NPC's?
Didn't even know these were a thing, where can we get these extra components? Are unfixed ones legal?
I do those awful YouTube videos.

i thought you quit

probably will enter wraith and only wraith, because itll inevitably get shuffled out if i enter anything alongside it and its the one i want to actually see fight

You can lock in Wraith and send in another bot, though Wraith will likely need to swap from typhoons to be legal.
"9.    Typhoon teeth are now limited. 2 Large 4 Small for a Vert, 4 Large 6 Small for a Horizontal and typhoons on drums will probably not be accepted."

man what do i even replace them with
ds teeth are fragile as hell and any alternative i can think of wont attach to the drum properly

finally had a version of wraith i was proud of and knew it could win and yall change the rules so it cant fight anymore

count me out then. if this is the way irl is heading i probably wont enter anything anymore

the batteries and npcs are already included if you downloaded the complete edition

betas are here: https://gametechmods.com/forums/modifications/centered-betas/

the rest can be found in the downloads section
Come on guys just leave him alone.  No forum rule exists that ban players from showcasing useless ugly bots.

They are. But the fixes are just attachment point fix. Basically for the beta AP, the fix centers it. While for batteries, it just add more AP. And you can get them all on the Custom Components section of Downloads (there's also the colored wheels and casters, but I think it's not used for this tourney yet)

Stop crying waahdnik, without that rule you'd be whinging about stuff spamming typhoons out the ass like Tilted Evo 2. There are plenty of components in the game, if you want to only use the most effective come play DSL-S like a proper boomer.
also lol at most toxic guy around calling others out on this sh**

Honest question from an idiot.

What's the view on Pixel Chassis? Just asking because I just sunk a fair bit of time into an axebot with a pixel chassis.

probably a silly question, but are any glitches allowed? I often battery stack in my designs.

People now use RA2CF when building, thus rendering glitches useless. Also, battery stacking is illegal as it's DSL-IRL, and Rupt glitch and EFFe I think are illegal too as it unfairly overpower flipper and allow illegal stacking if used on weapon respectively. I suggest you read the DSL-IRL guide on the tutorial to know more about the meta, as well as get DSL 2.2 Complete Edition, as this is what people use now

Is there like an Orc Wars AI pack or similar that will have the same sort of build quality to see if my designs are even effective? I currently have RedAce's AI pack but the HWs in that pack are... questionable.

seconding this, the ability to do dry runs and tests would be greatly helpful

Yes, they are in the downloads section. Or you could go to Modifications and find the page for them there.
