Their will be a blue alliance and a red alliance. 4 robots will be on the field per match. There are 48, 2.5 inch spheres all starting out in one of the four craters. There is 2 craters per team with 12 spheres in each crater. There is 16 goals and you have to score your own color sphere. The yellow sphere in the middle of the playing field on a six sided ramp resembling a hexagon is worth 5 points if you get the ball on your color corner. Tubular Torment has 3 minutes of driver controlled period but without an autonomous period. If you score the big sphere in your big goal and it doesn't fall out by the end of the match then you receive 10 points.
Good luck to all our competitors and I will see you at the tournament
