Aerial Assist is played by two-three team alliances. The field is broken up into three sections, and working together between teams is needed now more than ever. With passing being a large section of the points possible to earn it becomes the primary objective for most teams. Being able to work together, pass the ball back and forth down the field, toss the ball over the truss, and into the goal is the only way to win. Unlike years past where it has been the case where robots try to score multiple objects at once, this year the game has only one ball.
