The 2017 FIRST game was FIRST Steamworks, a game in which robots shot balls, manipulated gears and climbed ropes. The game was divided into an autonomous and teleoperated period. During the 15 second autonomous period, robots crossed the baseline, shot the balls, and delivered gears for points worth more than if they were scored in the teleoperated period. A robot that crossed the baseline would be awarded 5 points, a robot that scored 3 balls in the low goal or 1 ball in the high goal would be awarded 1 point, and an alliance which got one rotor spinning would be awarded 60 points.
