The QuakeWorld crowd has seen the eight season of Thunderdome go live today as the registration closed at a number of 80 contestants. These players will compete in six different tiers (divisions) through a double elimination bracket to decide who is the Quake champion. The match-ups for the first round of the bracket have been generated and people have until Tuesday 4th of April to play their first game.

As mentioned in a previous news report about Thunderdome 8, this season features a map pool consisting of DM2, DM4, ZTNDM3, Aerowalk and the fairly recent addition Bravado by United States of America Foogs.
