Each three-team alliance prepares to defeat the boss in three ways:
Robots collect Power Cubes and place them on plates to control Switches or the Scale. When the Scale or their Switch is tipped in their favor, it is considered owned by that Alliance. Alliances work to have ownership for as much time as possible.
Robots deliver Power Cubes to their humans who then place them into the Vault earning the Alliance Power Ups. Alliances use Power Ups to gain a temporary advantage during the match.
There are three Power Ups available to teams: Force, Boost, and Levitate.
