Once again, another season of Thunderdome is upon us; signups are already open on the website.
First round games are scheduled to begin the weekend of the 15th of October, and the tournament is planned to finish by the middle of December. Read on for more info, such as season 6 map statistics, season 7 administrators, and last season's winners and runners up.
This season, for the first time, South American countries are going to have their very own competition.
With 22 players
signed up so far (including a few players from North America), this section looks like it's shaping up to be a lot of fun and will provide solid competition for all involved.
Separate competitions for North America and Australia will also be automatically created if enough people from these respective regions sign up; players should signify their interest by either signing up on the tournament website, or registering their interest with any of the admins.
The European section so far has another big turnout, with 45 players
Administrators this season are VVD, praxismo, and 23y. All players should of course approach any one of these with any problems or questions. The best place to catch any one of us will always be on irc in #Thunderdome, but of course if you see any hanging around in the servers, do not be afraid to approach us!
Congratulations again to all those players who reached the top of their respective leagues in season 6. Thanks for participating and helping to keep the competitive scene alive.Division 1

As many of you are probably already aware, controversy was caused last season with the forced dropping of one tb3 map per round. Data was collected on map picks and tosses, and is organised below for interest:
We can see in the charts above that dm6 was the least favourite map by all listed criteria. Because of this, it will not be featured in season 7’s map pool.
The map pool for season 7 will thus be: aerowalk, bravadob(n), dm2, dm4, ztndm3.
We hope to see you all in the upcoming competition!
