ULTIMATE ASCENT is played by two competing Alliances. They compete to score as many discs into their goals as they can, during a two-minute and fifteen-second match. The higher the goal in which the disc is scored, the more points the Alliance receives. Discs scored during the autonomous period are worth additional points. For the remainder of the match, drivers control robots and try to maximize their alliance score by scoring as many goals as possible. The match ends with robots attempting to climb up pyramids located near the middle of the field. Each robot earns points based on how high it climbs (usfirst.org).
