The season was announced on the wiki on October 29, 2017, where it was stated that it would occur between December 2017 and January 2018. Shortly thereafter, applications were opened. The starting line was announced to occur on December 23, 2017 on December 2, 2017. After the first session, on the same day, the second session's time was announced to occur on December 30, 2017. After the second session, on the same day, the finale's session time was announced to occur on January 6, 2018, before it was moved to January 20, 2018 and then to January 27, 2018 on January 1, 2018 due to scheduling conflicts.
As seen before in seasons four, six, and seven, members were allowed to make guesses for the starting city. Each member had a free guess and each guess after costed money. Members were allowed to guess in mid-December. On December 16, 2017, BernCow guessed the starting city correctly, and it was revealed that Fort Yaxier's L'isola di Porco Rosso would be the starting line.
This season was the first game show where the starting time of sessions occurred an hour earlier than previous game shows. The starting time was moved from 8:00 p.m. UTC to 7:00 p.m. UTC. This season marks the first time that Frumple has streamed a game show on the server.
This season spanned 37 cities over two worlds, with first-time visits to the New World cities of the Isle of Chez, Forgotten Isle, Heampstead, Vekta, Avalon, Spring Valley, Jeeka, Waterville, Orio, Ravenna, Geneva Bay, Bakersville, Woodsdale, and Wythern and the Old World city of High Hoopsville.
It was announced after the seventh leg that Armada was supposed to be visited on the original Race course; however, it was undergoing renovations and had to be removed from the course. As a result, Lanark and Quiris were added to the route of this season. Additionally, a challenge in Ravenna had to be discarded and a Roadblock in Konawa was made into a Detour. For the first time in the show's history, teams crossed into Epsilon terrain, which only occurred at the starting line.
Applications opened on November 5, 2017 and were closed on December 16, 2017. From there, nine teams and three singles were added to the list to participate in the Race. Out of those teams, seven full teams showed up, with a substitute needed for MindBender15, which was MC_Protocol, who later became Baseball02's teammate, as he ran the whole race with MC_Protocol. As per usual, walk-ins to join the Race on the day were permitted, which allowed TalonPlays to join. TalonPlays was originally supposed to have a partner, but was eliminated before that partner joined him.
