Aerial Assist was the 2014 FIRST Robotics game. In the game, the alliances win via getting the scoring elements into the scoring areas located on the far end of the field. The game starts with each robots in either the White Zone (center field) or the goalie zones. The robots can then do either the basic goal score (take the ball to the other end of the field), or assist them in doing so. The recipient of the latter will earn bonus points (2 assists=10 points, 3 assists=30 points). Throwing the ball over the truss (the midpoint overhang) when transferring, a la volleyball, will add 10 additional points. Having an alliance partner catch it will earn 10 more points. A robot in the goalie zones can block shots via extending upwards.
