Like large trackers with massive torrent indexes and thousands of users? SceneFZ might be the site you are looking for. If memory serves correct, SceneFZ last opened signups to the public back in June 2010. It’s taken them almost an year to do another open registration and there’s only one more day left in the current phase in case you still didn’t get in. For those unfamiliar with this tracker, it’s a large general/0day torrent site based in Romania in the same league as iPlay, LastTorrents, TorrentBits, etc . A relatively unknown fact about SFZ is that it’s a tracker that’s nearly 6 years old. Movie fans in particular would want to check this out as it indexes nearly 20000 English and non English movies (up from 10000 a year ago). But that’s not all, you can find latest games, music, TV shows, software and a number of freeleech packs in SceneFZ’s massive torrent index.
Launched way back in 2006, SFZ is one of the oldest Romanian trackers still alive. Its users base however is not limited to its native country – the tracker has more than 83000 active members from various regions across the world. It is thanks to this large users base that most of the torrents in SFZ index are kept alive. As of 7/5/2011 there were 31000+ active torrents tracked, which is an impressive number for a private tracker.
SceneFZ appears to use a custom codebase that’s not as common as Gazelle, TBDev or TSSE. As a result, it looks a little different that your average private tracker. While some of you will love the layout, others might feel it’s a little cluttered. In case you don’t like the default look, theme can be changed through the style dropdown on left sidebar. Note that this tracker has in site advertising and some of the ads can be NSFW. Coming back to the content on SFZ, it has a huge collection of movies on board. To quote the official breakdown of available content:
We are currently tracking over: 31,334 torrent files:
- 2,457 Games
- 19,124 Movies
- 4,996 Music
- 1,816 Software
- 2,941 Other categories
Yeah. It’s a pretty big tracker. The actual number of individual movies, music, games etc indexed might vary since SFZ has a number of torrent packs, some of which you can see in the screenshot below.
