We have some changes starting from the next round on June 2:
- The games will be played on OGS instead of KGS
- New rules have been applied:
a) Proctors will now serve as local referees. Myungwan Kim 9P remains as the Chief Referee. When players are on the last byo-yomi, local referees are required to observe players as they play. When a player notices a delay, the player communicates his last move to the local referee, and this move becomes a sealed move in the case of timeout. The local referee should instantly contact the organizers. The game is to continue as soon as possible with the sealed move.
b) Players should make best efforts to ensure stable internet connection. Players should ask for help/advice to the organizing team prior to their games if there are concerns regarding technical issues.
c) When the Chief Referee makes a decision, only the team captain of the AGA or the EGF team can make an official appeal (not individual players). An appeal should be in a written form and must include date, reasons, and any additional relevant factual information.
d) When an official appeal is submitted, an appeal panel should be called and discuss the issue. Appeal panel shall be consist of four people (AGA and EGF each recommends two people for the panel). The members of the appeal panel are to be confirmed.
