After a series of articles about new private torrent trackers, we return to an ‘old school’ site. Acid or A-L is a well established General/0-Day private BitTorrent site that is over 4 years old. It tracks both new and old movies, music, games, E-books, appz and other torrents released by scene and p2p groups. Acid is a tracker that does not prefer much publicity – posting of full tracker URL/name in public is prohibited by site rules. However, if you are looking forward to get into this tracker, keep reading – there are two ways you can get invited for free.


While Acid is a great general/0day torrent tracker in its own right, the tight knit community of helpful members is probably it’s strongest aspect. Speaking about community trackers’,  one of the most common problems associated such sites is the small user base leading to low seeder/leecher activity on torrents. This is not much of a problem on AL – it’s one of the largest community trackers around with over 14000 registered members. As of 14/6/2009, there are over 5000 active torrents indexed on the tracker.

As for the content on Acid, almost all major scene and p2p releases are tracked. In addition to torrents that can be found on almost all other General/0Day trackers, AL has quite a few exclusive, internal releases. Such torrents can usually be identified by the tags ‘TeamAcid’, ‘RequestAcid’, ‘Acid’, ‘ACID INT’, etc. The following screenshot shows some of the internal releases found in AL’s torrent index:

Apart from the usual features on private torrent tracker Acid has several extras such as an arcade, live DJs and a Jukebox. A high res screenshot highlighting all major features of Acid can be found here.

How to get a free invite

You can obtain an invite to this tracker using any one (but not both) of the methods below:

  1. Send an E-mail with the subject ‘Acid Invite’ to Be sure to include two screenshots of at least two private torrent trackers that you are already a member of.
  2. Login to Acid invites IRC channel and request an invite there. Invite channel details are as follows:
    Channel: #acid-invites

    Note: You need to register your nickname on the IRC server before you can join the channel.
    Type /ns register password email in mIRC console (once connected to the server) and hit enter to register your nick - replace password and email with your own details. Then type /join #acid-invites to join the channel.

Good Luck!

    Does any one know how they would like the screenshots?

    As a rule of thumb when sending/posting proofs you censor your username and other identifiable info - would that be an issue in this instance?

    DONT censor your username or other info when you send it the staffers of AL.

    Censoring is mostly done when participating on Invite forums and similar :)

    No offense I'm sure loads of people love the site, but I can't stand the theme/colors, I know the 'theme' is Acid, but I think its awful.

    The lack of Leechers also, pretty ordinary for a 4 year old site.

    Again no offense to A-L, "MORPH" did ask what we thought!
