The moment you all have been waiting for is finally here. Blackcats Games (aka BCG), one of the best private torrent trackers on the planet for PC and Console games, has opened its doors to the public. You can now directly sign up for a BCG account without the need for a referral code (or in other words, no need to have an invite). This is the first time BCG has opened registrations in more than two years so don’t let this opportunity go waste. If you are a fan of video gaming on PC, Console and Mobile devices, BCG is a must have tracker which indexes both new and old video games for multiple gaming platforms including DOS/Windows PC, Playstation, PS2, PS3, XBOX, XBOX 360, Wii, Gamecube, Dreamcast, Android, iPhone and lots more others. Additionally, this is one of the oldest torrent communities on the internet and Blackcats is set to celebrate its 7th birthday in a couple of months, a feat only a handful trackers have so far managed to achieve.

BCG temporarily opened signups sometime early this week but it only lasted for 8 minutes. This was actually a test to iron out the bugs in their registration system. This time however, we can confirm it’s the real thing – although it’s not currently known how long the signups will remain open, it’s likely that open registrations will continue at least for a few days. As we stated in a previous article, they are seeking to expand their user base (which is already 25000+ strong) by several thousand members members, bringing in fresh new blood into the site.

If you don’t know much about BCG, here’s why you should get an account (if you are into video games that is). When it comes to content, BCG has games for almost every platform there is on the planet. From the popular DOS/Windows PC section to PS3, XBOX360, Wii console games sections, BCG tracks over 12000 active torrents which include latest titles (scene and non scene releases), retro games and exclusive BCG member creations. Recently they have expanded to cover mobile platforms and now games for Android, iPhone etc are also available. In addition to individual releases, lots of games packs & collections (including full games sets for several consoles) have also been uploaded. A screenshot showing some of the indexed collections can be seen below:

In some areas, BCG behaves drastically different from regular private trackers. For example, they have the seed points mod replacing the common bonus system on most torrent sites. This is an innovative system that lets you maintain a healthy global ratio and avoid hit and runs even on torrents that do not have that many leechers. To get a hang of many features and mods of BCG, we recommend you read their site Rules, FAQ and the Wiki immediately after signing up (Wiki contains BCG game reviews and tutorials as well – you do not need to login to read it).

Anyways as mentioned in the title of this post, BCG is currently open for signup. Use the signup URL below to create an account.

  13. sunil // 8/06/2010 11:01:00 PM  

    Registration for the site is closed right now

  14. eternity-sword // 8/07/2010 12:02:00 AM  

    The invite system is closed. You could just invite while they had their fake site up no other way, so wait again I don't know how long I waited 2 years but oh well. Another tracker the underground-gamer has more to offer than the blackcats tracker they even had bigger files than the blackcats tracker but it's closed for registrations too. Hope they open their doors again. Those two are really great.

  15. John // 8/07/2010 02:06:00 AM  


    underground gamer is dedicated to old, retro games, whereas bcg has a HUGE diversity of all games

  16. Oranges // 8/07/2010 02:56:00 AM  

    Damn...can't believe I missed it :(

  17. dedo // 8/07/2010 04:12:00 AM  

    Thanks guys, after the failures of the competitions (thanks timezones for that!)i got in the minute this post was up...

  18. Thevil // 8/07/2010 05:29:00 AM  

    Now let's hope that the majority of these new users aren't collectors, but are actual gamers.

  19. eternity-sword // 8/07/2010 05:35:00 AM  

    @Thevil why do you think that is and why do you want that they are gamers? Collectors are good because they collect the old and share them with us which is really good but well somebody likes them and others don't.

  20. Thevil // 8/07/2010 06:36:00 AM  

    @eternity - The word "share" doesn't fit well with "collector", but I think "exploiter" would do well. BCG is looking for people who will download their stuff regularly and keep seeding for long periods. Collectors don't do that.

  21. eternity-sword // 8/07/2010 06:59:00 AM  

    @Thevil Well I think some or most collectors do that but they won't be able to go far with such a mind. If they dl from any site and then upload it on another then thats the thing that should be done and many collectors can be asked to upload something what's now rare on the net or isn*t sared much but wanted. That's exactly why I am a ``collector´´ to just do those things to help the community. I don't think that collectors are that bad.

  22. John // 8/07/2010 07:33:00 AM  

    I dont see the point in collecting. Really, what is the point? I only wanted to get into bcg because i'm a gamer. i have absolutely zero interest in getting into FTN or SCC or w.e.

  23. TEAM FILEnetworks // 8/07/2010 07:57:00 AM  

    For those who missed the open signup, they might open again. Response from stoi:

    "I believe but have not been told, that altinertia has closed because we have 700 pending accounts, so it looks like the email confirmation is screwing up somewhere, so once he has fixed that, we will open again, but that is jsut a complete guess atm. "

  24. TEAM FILEnetworks // 8/07/2010 08:02:00 AM  

    Btw comments requesting invites to the tracker will be deleted. That just doesn't make sense.

  25. sunil // 8/07/2010 09:56:00 AM  

    Registration for the site is closed right now.

  26. John // 8/07/2010 09:50:00 PM  

    I just want to say thank you again because i can't believe i finally got in. THANK YOU FILENETWORKS

  27. Oranges // 8/08/2010 12:50:00 AM  

    Do they keep opening and closing signups or something?

    How long are they open for? 5 mins?

  28. John // 8/08/2010 04:02:00 AM  


    no they are closed. i was lucky enough to be one of the first to read this blog and find out they were open. they might open again though according to stoi.

  29. evil // 8/08/2010 06:55:00 AM
