Breakaway
Breakaway is a game played on a field divided into six sections by two bumps and the centerline. Two alliances, one red and one blue, composed of three FIRST Robotics Competition teams each, compete in each match. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than your opponent by shooting balls into a goal, climbing an alliance tower, or lifting an alliance robot off the playing surface.

Breakaway

Each alliance receives six balls which must be placed on a starting grid before the match begins. From the view of the alliance station, the balls are placed on the right half of the field; one ball is in the near zone, two balls in the midfield, and three balls in the far zone. During autonomous mode, robots are not permitted to move into the opposing alliance's half of the field. Breakaway Field

Scoring
  • 1 Point for each scored ball
  • 2 Points for every elevated robot
  • 3 Points for every suspended robot

Reminder:
A robot must be in the elevated or suspended state at the end of the match in order to receive points.

An elevated robot is completely above the plane of the platform and in contact with the tower. A suspended robot is only in contact with another elevated and/or suspended robot.
