No topic changes in Astronomy or Dynamic Planet?
Chances are Astro won't change topic. I don't know about DP.

Is this for real? Why would it be posted on the PA website and not soinc?

It doesn't have anything inaccurate that I can see. I would treat the new information as tentatively accurate, I doubt PA would post something wrong.

In other words: Official, but not yet.

What made sumo bots so much pay to win? Like wouldn't you be able to buy an rc car and slap some mods from hardware store materials and call it a day or am I overlooking something?

Sumo bots is all about finding the strongest, heaviest, most durable, and hardest materials. These things don't come without a thicc price. Sure, you could slap some mods in an RC car, but a rich kid could just buy the strongest motors on some op but sketchy website combined with really expensive wheels and beat you easily, every single time.

Now imagine what nationals would be like. 10 rich kid teams with op sumo bots, 20 teams that aren't so rich but are trying as hard as they can without a good budget, and 30 more teams that just have no idea what they're doing and don't have the budget to compete with the other 30 relatively op teams.

Not to mention that it's an event that literally encourages damaging/destroying the other team's device.
