April was a horrible month for many coins, A lot of the bots have been struggling to avoid red bags, especially the cheaper or aggressive bots. Needing to cover the 60% or to really aggressively keep RC% low seems to be the way to go since November 2021 to April 2022.
ROI has been pretty horrible, there's been loads of additional backtests in the community since. AlexMuc#0495 from discord has posted a few backtests that are very interesting results for those that wanted to compare to see if any of the community settings performed well.
There are still coins worth running for bots, but coin selection really does make a different in the performance as not every coin is profitable to run DCA bots on.
I still haven't added any risks here, but if it was me and I had to bankroll, I would really be just tempted with a few coins and running very safe settings like set 9 or set 6 or even ta standard. Sadly these settings are expensive to run so its not sure how well the popular settings in the bullish market like Mars or Banshee will cope, even with the 9th safety order to cover the 57% deviation.
However everyone has their own strategy and reason for running a certain setting, but for smaller bankroll players, the cheaper bots just may not cover enough to protect you from quite a few red bags. I still think just running coins you are really comfortable holding or look great on chart makes sense until we see clear bullish momentum again.

Also with permission from Heopas#8895 who has his own backtests he has done a great tests for variants of Set 9 for me You can find data here. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11Qb936MnsAADIY68uotrq2o5k7STBuDi/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=102750071504415658988&rtpof=true&sd=true
Also there's a huge 20 meg one year backtest that was run by Heopas#8895 for us.

Update on Symrank
The beginning of April shows some pretty positive results, but like all coins even with the coin selection, the market crash across most markets has many safety orders filled and we have to see if the recovery bounce and volatility will help against the potential red bags.
Good luck with anyone botting in this market conditions!
