IMPORTANT for March league ! – Buggy KGS server… defect games archive


Dear ASR members, dear players of the league month March, dear Rookies !

The KGS server was updated in last week of February. Till today it has some defects, e.g.  the KGS games archive does not work for now.

Also a new KGS client 3.5.22 is available but still some have problems with it as Java 8 is required to run it. – Some may have difficulties registering or logging in on some platforms.

We have contacted the KGS owner / KGS admins via direct email already on 22nd February 2017 with the appeal to repair the bugs quickly. But nothing changed. The KGS games archive is still not back after one week.

The error message looks like this:

Therefore ASR’s crawler cannot pick up all game records automatically as it cant get access to the KGS games archive. It is not a defect or bug in the ASR league system.

You can check the list of all indexed games in ASR’s own game archive here:

IMPORTANT !! – Keep tagging the games with #asr in the games chat !! – You will have to upload all your games you start playing from first day on in the league month March 2017 (start: 03/02/2017 – 12:00 am UTC).

How to play + tag a game in the ASR Room on KGS ? – Here to read, simply four steps.

Download the SGF from your KGS account; then upload it as attachment with a post in the ASR forum here:

Pls upload your sgf files IMMEDIATELLY after you finished the game to guarantee that your potential opponents get a clear picture about the scoring in the results table

Tks in advance !  – Enjoy your Go studies in the monthly ASR league.

Warm greetings

P.S.: As soon the KGS games archive is repaired then the automated crawler of ASR’s league system can pick up your games directly… we will inform you by email.
