The past few weeks have not been too good for international users of BitTorrents.Ro (BiTT), one of the most popular Romanian General/0Day trackers. Although inaccessible from some countries, the site actually was not down as many had speculated. BiTT was suffering from international peering issues, rending some users in certain regions unable to connect to either the site or the tracker. However all these annoying issues now seem to be fixed – should be exciting news for all since BiTT is a huge tracker with good download speeds and a sh1tload of torrent packs.
As of 1/08/2009, BitTorrents.Ro tracks over 25000 active torrents with around 2800 torrents on free leech. However, new members cannot download all of these torrents – anything added in the last 10 days can only be downloaded by Power Users and above. Basically it’s a tougher version of the ‘wait time’ concept adopted by some private trackers. Until you get promoted to PU (25GB upload with a ratio of 1.05+) you cannot download anything in the “Last 10 Days’ tab on the browse page.
However you will have access to over 24000 torrents indexed in the ‘Old Torrents’ section and the ‘Free Leech’ section. As depicted in the screenshot above, switching between categories and subcategories in the Browse page is pretty easy. Once you get over the annoying starting period, BiTT is a pretty cool tracker to have. The site is rich with content (both scene/p2p) and most of the indexed torrents have ample activity around them leading to good download speeds. And it’s worth mentioning that this tracker has lots and lots of torrent packs, ranging from movie collections to PC game packs:
If you are an English speaking user, don’t get too worked up about the ‘RoSubbed’ tag on some torrents. They just come with harmless optional Romanian subtitles – audio is English.
Another great thing about BiTT is that it’s almost always open for signup. You can create an account for yourself at any time, if interested.
