    First. Before the point of this thread, don't post unless you have both. I'm NOT asking for FTN and I don't care if I ever get it or not since I already have ScT.

    Now. ScT is wonderful and it's currently my favorite tracker. But is FTN much different? I know it has ever so slightly better pretimes, but aside from that? I know it can't have better speed, because I max out on ScT every time I download there.

    They both have their exclusive packs, and ScT's are fantastic, maintaining a ratio on ScT is way easier then one might think, but on FTN there IS no ratio.

    So do they level out in terms of overall quality? Or to the people with both, do you prefer one over the other and why?

    Content wise, both trackers have pretty similar torrents (mostly 0day); FT.N has more articulate pack torrents.

    FT.N isn't much different than ScT, except for the community (but all trackers differ in that area). ScT has better pre times, but FT.N has more unique uploads, I guess.

    Yes, there isn't a ratio system on FT.N, but like you said, you're seeding fine on ScT.

    The reason I prefer FT.N over ScT is it's a beautiful thing to leech a huge HD pack torrent and not worrying about it killing your ratio when it finishes downloading; when you join the IRC channel, people greet you because they know and respect you; and their well-designed style sheet.

    Edit: Stupid edit system.

    Thanks th0r for the wonderful explanation!

    th0r pretty much nailed it. In my opinion.. ScT excels a little more in the TV genre.. but FTN's packs are killer. There is also more of an overall sense of community at FTN, if that is important to you.

    Both are great trackers, but if I had to choose only one, it would be FTN. I really like the feel of a small community.. and their movie packs rule

    FTN is about to become one of the most unique trackers (well that I know of at least) within the next couple of weeks. I've rejoined the coding team and we're currently in the process of offering something no other tracker has ever done (this has nothing to do with ratios).

    hang on, am i missing something? dont you have to seed in FTN to a 1:1 ratio or seed for like 3 days or else you will get banned?, so whats the catch with the ratio system?

    well seeding time is now 36 hours

    but it doesn't mean you will seed to 100% in this period, so the fact that you have no ratio is cool for that

    Brandon FTW again!

    Also, yes FTN is word going after. IMO it is the best of both worlds, great community, intelligent/articulate users (like th0r! ), wonderful staff (they are all nice as far as I can tell), fast enough pre-times and great packs. With that being said, go after it in a manner that doesn't break the trackers rules or puts the trackers security at risk. In other words, get to know some people.
