Dragon Ball Super |OT6| The waiting game

this is better writing than in all of Dragon Ball Super.
Nah. Like, where's the plot, aside from a new super strong villain just appearing early on and beating down Goku and Vegeta. It's straight up just a brawl.

And what world building? Moro facing a Kai in the past is pretty insignificant in terms of world building. The rest of Super further defined the universe of DB, through a pantheon of Gods and the varying universes and hierarchies. Toyo has just introduced a strong guy who fought a Kai in the past and was imprisoned.

Toyotarō just gets Dragon Ball Z. You can mock Roshi's use of Ultra Instinct, or Goku's attempt at using Haikai, but I support it all. Zamasu actually using Kai techniques like object materialisation and teleportation, Vegeta creating another goofy attack - it all comes across as someone who really understands the world and characters.

This Moro character is great too. Actually finding a new kind of threat, multiple new attacks that aren't just beams, bizzarely solid world building - this is better writing than in all of Dragon Ball Super.
Disagree with nearly everything you've said.

When it comes to world building I'm mainly talking about the Galactic Patrol as an organization. Even the Namekian's way of strengthening warriors (suggested in the ToP arc, but shown in a really great visual way in the manga arc).

When I say writing in general I think Moro is a compelling threat. It's an interesting challenge to pose to the characters, instead of one where more power is the obvious solution. It also helps that the character is attacking with energy in a novel way.

Yeah, Shintani's style is already heavily based on Toriyama's manga, from Namek all the way to Buu. So yes, they are continuing the style of the movie.
