Thread: FTN : before and after the ratio system

  1. #1
    this is a question for ftn members only

    do you find the downloads speed less or equal to before the no ratio system was implemented ?

    just curious

    i know if such a system was implemented in a site like TL , it would have been a complete disaster .

    While I never had an account before the change, I will say that my seedbox is often max/near-maxed out on whatever torrent I download (100/100). Furthermore, I find that I can seed better there than at other sites even if I don't jump on the torrent in the first 10 seconds.

    I think it works quite nicely.
    Ask me about my self-esteem!

    ah great

    so what about old torrents , those 2 week+ torrents ?

    do you get nice speeds for that too ?

    Yeah, no problem with older torrents. The new system works great! More traffic = more seeders.

    The speed have gone down some. But i only notice it on my box. But then again, its become easier to seed. It used to be close to impossible to seed there. Noone was getting anything except the freeleech packs.
    So it was a grate move by staff to go for no ratio.

    Well more leechers = less speed when your download i suppose, if you grab early, but if you grab late you iwll get maxed out But on a personal scale, and lurking thru the peers list, i would say speeds have gone down a bit, but seriously downloading at 4 or 5MBps is great enough


    Someone invite me to fsc please

    Although the speed quite possibly went down, it couldn't be a substantial change.

    I mean, I used to have a connection that when maxed out it would take me over 24 hours to download a DVD.
    Does the difference between downloading a file in 40 seconds or 60 seconds with a seedbox really make that much of a difference??
    The new ratio system makes it easier for people who DON'T have seedboxes be able to download, which I think is a more positive effect than seedboxes users always getting their max speed.

    so the speed has only slightly gone down even on old torrents ? correct ?



    even when the members only had to seed for some required hours (72 hours ? ) . they still seed stuff , which is just great .

    i guess its a result of the great community they build up



    ps: i am not a member so stop pm'ing for FTN invites

    the speed on older torrents has always been slow(er). The reason for this is that people seed older torrents on their home connections while newer torrents go on the seedbox. I think the ratio system has made old torrents a tad bit faster because more people are willing to d/l them, fully knowing that they will not be able to seed it one to one.

    Maxs me out at 2.2MB/s time after time. I couldn't ask for more. Torrents stay seeded for quite a while w/o ratios. Avg seed time is also reviewed when asking for invites...

    Please do not PM me for invites. Thx.
