Dragonsteincole, or "DSC", is an IRL bot builder and modder, having joined in October 2010. He generally sticks to making IRL-styled bots in DSL, which can be seen here, but has branched out into other metas occasionally. He has also made a handful of replicas, mainly of bots from Robot Wars.
After taking a hiatus in 2013, he returned in 2016 initially continuing to build IRL bots in DSL 2.2. But soon branched out to try new things, including hosting a tournament called Beat the Clock. His most notable contribution to GTM however are the IRL Component Packs, which add recoloured and reskinned DSL components and have quickly become almost a standard part of a DSL install. There have been three packs released so far.
Stock - Pretty terrible. He finds it much harder to build in Stock due to playing DSL first. His only notable Stock bot is the MW Toybox, which made it to Round 3 in GTMCS.
DSL - Initially building in a IRL-specific style, with focus on looks over combat-effectiveness. Since his return from hiatus the bots have started to creep closer to Standard but are still mainly IRL. His most successful meta with a number of victories in IRL tournaments. Less successful in Standard. Doesn't always build up to the weightlimit.
Modding - Was always a good painter, his skillset has increased far more since his return. Is now able to create new components, reskin and edit existing ones, model and texture components, all skills which were picked up in the creation of the IRL Component packs.
RA2 Team Championships 2 - Chinook - Again part of Team 4TW. Lost to Scrap Daddy in the Tabletop match. Beat King_Mushroom in the 3rd-Place Playoff . Team came 3rd overall again, however Chinook was voted Team 4TW's SFTW and tied for BTRSHDWBDDTGL of the tournament. (1-1)
RA2 Team Championships 3 - Pricklish - Became a verteran of Team 4TW. Along with 090901 they beat MikeNCR and MassimoV in the Tag team match. Beat Craaig in the Tabletop grand Final. Overall Team 4TW won the tournament. (2-0)
Pricklish - Bot from RA2 Team Championships 3, and his first successful DSL-Standard bot. Currently undefeated in 2 competitive fights, and in one bonus rumble. A Rammer with a big front-skirt, which was renamed to King of Diamonds after the tournament.
Sir Lance-a-Frog - A family of bots with their roots in the Bullfrog bot, the first and most successful bot is the original MW Sir Lance-a-Frog. There is currently 4 bots in this family: LW- Young Lance-a-Frog MW - Sir Lance-a-Frog CW - Queen Lance-a-Frog and HW - King Lance-a-Frog. All bots share a common design theme of being 2WD with horizontal spinners/blades, and a lance/pole spike as a secondary weapon, decorated in a loose Medievil knight theme. All bots feature the Cole family Coat of Arms on the top of the chassis. Currently both Sir Lance-a-Frog and Queen Lance-a-Frog are tournament winners.
Action News Choppa! - A Retooled bot modelled after an RC helicopter, it was a hoverbot with a drill and tribar arrangement sitting underneath the chassis. Came in 2nd place in GTMCS, only dropping 1 fight during it's undefeated run to the finals, where it was thoroughly beaten by Uberpyro after the bot havoked repeatedly. The top rotors were useless for damaging opponents, but were a necessity to cure gyroscopic issues with the bot.
inVasion - A cruiserweight dual-VS, and a slimmed-down version of one of DSC's first HW bots. Created for GTM Robot Wars but now fighting in Robogames. Has a decent feared reputation despite minimal fights. The CW version was given increased armour and larger wheels to turn it into a HW, but lost to lra2 in it's only fight so far.
Darkest Knight/Carbon Copy(DSC)/CarboniZe - Starting as a SHW DSL-S bot in the style of Warhead, there have been over a dozen versions of this bot in different weightclasses. Many heavyweight versions of Carbon Copy fought in the Battlebots tournaments with little success, but since 2016 the bot has been redesigned and refined and now has found success in a number of tournaments. All bots again share a theme of a 2WD angled horizontal spinner, whilst recent versions have added a srimech/tail which sits over the spinner. CarboniZe was the first bot in this series to taste success, winning Death Battle. A colour variant of this same bot called CarboniCe was on the winning Team Light in Guldenflame's 2017 edition of Light vs Dark, being the sole survivor. There also exists a SHW and UHW version of Carbonize, and an axe variant of the newest 2017 design.
Dead Metal - A 2500kg UHW version of the Robot Wars house robot, created specifically for Cephalopod's GTM Robot Wars tournament. Fully featured with the clamping jaws and moving circular saw weapon.
Mortis - Created for the GTM Live tournament, an elaborate extenderbot replicating the Season 4 version. Uses wheels for locomotion instead of treads. Also comes in a variety of fruity flavours.
