The game, RAPID REACT revolves around the idea of transportation. Each round started with an autonomous period, where the robot acted purely based on programing, no live human input. After that period, the players work to score points by shooting balls into a hub shared by both teams through either the high goal, worth 2 points, or the low goal, worth 2 points. At the near the end of the match, all teams get the chance to hang their robot in the hangar, with different level bars awarding different point values.
