Thread: TorrentLeech is SELLING OUT

  1. #1

    Sick

    In the last few days, we've seen:

    1. Massive Travian promotions, first in the form of official announcements, then in the form of recurring IRC invite giveaways. This means that forget dedication, forget people who know what BitTorrent is, forget upholding the community, just register on Travian so that TL get their money from affiliation, and presto! you're in.

    2. Secretive forum posts from w00t saying that 'if you have a credit card with $10 on it, PM me and you'll get a year's VIP membership'... no more details.

    3. And now a poker tournament where the fee for joining is $11... according to mansionpoker.com, affiliates get 20% of net revenue.

    I'm disappointed. TL is moving from a tracker where dedication and community actually means something, to a tracker where only money matters. This is so contrary to the ethos that they were once spearheading. Will they go the same way as MovieX?

    Discuss. Am I alone in thinking this?

    Well, you have to remember that people tend to get greedy when they smell money.
    150 000+ members means big bucks as long as some of them actually pay.

    I couldn't care any less about what the owners of TL do. As long the releases keep coming for me to illegally download for free, then they can do whatever they want.

    I think you are too late in realizing this. One of TL's main agenda has always been to gain money and I think a site so big as TL always need money. But I agree, they have gone overboard in their ways to collect donations.

    Well sorry but I have to agree with dragos, there is no sense of community, however I am not sure what he means by dedication. Its an excellent tracker though, covering almost all scene releases.

    TL is an awesome site, but the forums are near dead. IRC isn't bad but meh. However tracker side they are doing awesome, great speeds, lots of leechers, personal compilations/cracks.

    They're doing just fine if you ask me
