2012 rebound rumble

Rebound Rumble is the 2012 FIRST Robotics Competition game. The objective of the game is to score as many basketballs in their hoops as they can in a 2 minute and 15 second match. Alliances receive more points the higher hoop they score in. Alliances are awarded more points for the goals they score in the first 15 seconds, an autonomously controlled "hybrid" period. The match ends with robots attempting to balance on bridges located in the middle of the field. The official FIRST one-page summary can be found here.
