Thread: Strategies for Ratio

  1. #1
    I'm very new to the community as well as to downloading torrents in general. I've gained access to a few private trackers and am more than willing to share. Could someone please help me with some strategies to get a good ratio. I don't want to cheat ... I'm just seeing files with many seeders and no leechers and am wondering how I will ever get to a good ratio.

    Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.

    Get the files as soon as they get uploaded. Usually these files have more leechers. Also try and partial seed until you get a big buffer, usually you can get a higher ratio by partial seeding rather than seeding 100%.

    What is your connection bud?
    I haven't taken a beating like that since I opened my first issue of Hustler!

    Good attitude mate, that's what makes the private sites work.

    Grab a porn flick, even if you don't want it, and seed that, guaranteed to boost your ratio.

    The best torrent(s) to seed are new video games and DVDs. Just pick the one that has the MOST leechers and FEW seeders, but DON'T download the whole torrent; just download 1 .rar file from the torrent then seed it.

    That's what I do. I just download 1 .rar file (
    usually about 47MB) from a torrent and seed it for a week or so and I end up with an average of 2-3GB upload a day at a speed of only 31kBps (50% of my max upload speed).

    It also depends on the tracker you are seeding in. Torrentleech is one of the best when it comes to maintaining your ratio.

    If you are using multiple trackers, you can download a file on one tracker and then download the torrent files for the same release on other trackers and seed them there (for an infinite ratio on the file!).

    Porn ofcourse, but I can totally suggest you to grab just a handful of .rar-files from a popular release. F.ex. when 300 DVDR is released, just grab like 10 rar-files (~500MB) or more, and just seed, seed, seed!
