Also the meta combination of robot seems to be a 4bar or something like that paired with a good traybot that is the best combination of robots on the field.

search 21000C Tower Takeover Hawaii Reveal on the forums. this is clawbot @enothecool

these are some of the more common designs I’ve seen so far. This is the biggest meta design at the moment.

It’s typically on a all Omni direct drive, due to that being the easiest and simplest design. I’ve also seen some X-drives popping up due to increased mobility.
The next biggest design looks like this

Good at towers but gets outpaced in stacking by the previous meta. DR4B are the most prominent lift due to the high speed and decent torque. I’ve also seen a scissor lift from 62.

Scissors are harder to build, and slower, but they are typically pretty strong. Personally I think the best of these three is the 448X tilter design due to speed and versatility, but a good DR4B can be very competitive.

Lift i believe stays on floor. U see with 21000 their lift is in air. Meaning it a claw
