GFT (GFTRacker) is a ratio free scene releases tracker which has gained huge popularity in the few months it’s been online. Although GFT is a relatively new tracker to the BitTorrent scene, it’s pre times are right up there with SCC and SCT and in some cases even beats them. They have also managed to add over 19500 torrents to the tracker during this time. If you were looking forward to get into GFT, here is some good news - IRC invites are back once again.
Initially, GFT invites could be obtained from their IRC channel after completing a simple questionnaire. This system was later discontinued and no invites were given via IRC in the last few months. Good news is that GFT staff have begun issuing invites on their invites channel once again. The only requirement to get one is to have a good ratio on a recognized private torrent tracker such as Torrent Damage, SCC, SCT, TorrentLeech, etc.
