2013 Game- Ultimate Ascent
The 2013 FIRST FRC competition, Rebound Rumble, is a game that is based loosely on Frisbee. The game includes two major elements, Frisbee shooting and pyramid climbing. It is played on a 27- by 54-foot court, on which two alliances of three teams each compete. There is one colored pyramid on either side of the court, and all robots on the field must begin the game touching their respective alliance pyramids. At the start of the match, there is a 15 second autonomous period, during which robots may follow preprogrammed instructions in order to fire up to three pre-loaded Frisbees into the goals on their end of the court. After this period, robots may receive input from human controllers in order to pick up, receive, and/or fire Frisbees at their goals. Each team has five goals- one goal low to the ground on one side, worth one point; two goals above either side of the end of the field, each worth two points; one goal above the center of the end of the field, worth three points; and one goal located above the team pyramid, worth five points (but only when scored with a frisbee of your team's color). During the autonomous period, all frisbees scored are worth double. As well, robots may climb their alliance's pyramid for bonus points at the end of the round; the pyramid has three rungs, with each rung climbed being worth 10 points.
