The new site went down after a short while due to huge traffic says KAT
A few months ago a criminal investegation by the U.S. Government brought down KickassTorrents. Shortly after the shutdown, several KAT-crew members regrouped in an effort to get the community part of the site back up. They launched the Katcr.co forum as their new home and hinted that torrents could come back too, in the future. Now Katcr.co (KATcr) has now launched a fully operational torrent site, which looks identical to its predecessor. The site starts with a clean user database but many members of the original staff are on board. According to KAT it’s much safer than before.
“In order to keep our members safe, we chose to rebuild and keep only safe elements. Despite the fact that a rebuild took longer, the safety of our community comes first,”
But this new site has suffered some technical issues. KATcr’s Mrs.Smith says that the overwhelming amount of traffic is causing the current issues.
“We’ve had a massive response from the torrent community! Unfortunately, the servers are having difficulty balancing the load of the absolutely huge amount of users on line at the same time. Tech are on it and will no doubt have it sorted out as soon as possible.”
