When you first hear the name ‘Midnight Arab Torrents’, most of you would imagine a torrent tracker from the Middle East, tracking content native to Middle Eastern countries (and some of you with dirtier minds would imagine porn, especially with to ‘Midnight’ being present in the name). While MAT is indeed from the ME, you may be surprised to hear that it’s actually a scene torrent tracker, indexing latest international General/0Day releases pre’d by scene groups. Although a new tracker launched just a couple of months ago, MAT seems to have made a good first impression among many BitTorrent users – the site is already armed with valuable features seen on most leading 0Day trackers such as autouploader bots, seedbox hosted torrents as well as excellent pre times. Thankfully, getting into MAT is not difficult at all – you do not have to jump hurdles with interviews, invite applications, etc as direct signups are now open.
Within just two months since public launch, MAT’s uploaded torrent count has exceeded 10000. Needless to say this is a great achievement even for a general tracker. A healthy flow of new daily torrents can be seen on the site with 100+ new torrents getting uploaded every day. Over 450 torrents were added yesterday (2 July) alone – if they can keep up with these statistics in the long run, MAT will definitely become one of the leading 0Day torrent sites. Bulk of these torrents are spewed by MAT’s autouploader bots - all such automatically uploaded torrents are hosted on seedboxes, ensuring good download speeds. Pre times are excellent with most releases getting uploaded within 5 mins (usually under 1-2 mins) after they are pre’d on scene topsites.
MAT runs on a customized version of TBDEV codebase. Some of the notable site features are highlighted below (this is a list sent in by MAT staff with edits by FnB):
- Based on Tbdev 09 Final Source - Source has been coded by the best coders in the community Mindless, PDQ, Putyn
- Has unique design by Kidvision which is xhtml valid
FN Edit: KIdvision project is now known as BTSkins.net
- Unique bonus system installed
- Auto bot to upload releases to the tracker from Scene axx
- Great pre-times to releases with scene access

- Indexes more than 10000 torrents
- Built on IRCD, MAT has privileged channels for the community. See /irc.php for detailed information.

MAT’s registered user count has also surpassed 1000 but tracker admins are looking to bring in more members to boost leecher activity. Signups are currently open and will continue to remain open until the site hits 5000 users. If you are looking forward to get in, now would be a good time especially with sitewide free leech and double upload currently active.
