    Tracker Description
    Legend of Torrents (LoT) is a general german tracker. It got a good bump in the user base when (TheNewGeneration) TNG went offline and most of TNG's users searched for a similar tracker. The community is quite nice, helping with requests pretty fast. However, requests need to be made with much detail (see the rules screenshots). It's very easy to maintain a good ratio, so you don't really need to worry about that. If you don't have a good internet connection, just seed a lot of files and use the bonus system to build up ratio. As soon as you are an "Extreme User", your seed limit increases from 60 ("Power User") to 500 and the bonus is counted for every single torrent you seed - there is no limit of bonus points you can earn. The content is not outstanding, but quite good for a general german tracker. Torrents can be compressed in split archives - there is no rule forbidding it.


    Tracker Features:
    • Bonus points - You earn bonus points for every single torrent you seed. Those points can be exchanged for upload credit, download credit (subtraction), VIP state.
    • Micro-Browse page - There is a micro-browse page with a space saving layout.
    • RSS - You can configure RSS feeds for uploaded torrents.
    • Bet - You can bet your upload credit on sports events.
    • Casino - You can play games and bet your upload credit.

    • Radio - Every now and then you can listen to the LoT Radio.

    There is also a micro-browse page that displays everything in a space saving layout:

    Freeleech
    There are a lot of freeleech (called OnlyUpload there) torrents. All bigger files (seems like 8 GB or more) are freeleech. Also, there are sometimes events or holidays which activate freeleech on the whole tracker for all files. This happens about twice or three times a year and is active for around a week.





    Forums

    There is a board, but there's not much happening in there. Most of the tracker is about the torrents and not about discussions.

    Invite System


    Currently, the invite system is deactivated. There was a big invite event going on a few weeks ago. I assume they will reopen the system for a short period of time once or twice a year.

    Requests

    You can request a torrent-upload, but need to be specific on what you want to get (e.g. with an imdb link and the desired quality and language). Requests are fulfilled quite fast by some friendly users.






    Sports Bets and Casino
    You can bet your upload credit on sports and in a casino









    Ratings & Personal Commentary
    This is not a top notch tracker, but it's a good start for people who want to get going. The content is quite well and it's not too hard to maintain a good ratio. If you want to have more distinguished content (e.g. movies in more different qualities AND year-long availability of files) you should find a bigger tracker. This one, though, is quite okay, if you can wait for your upload-request to be handled by some friendly user. And there's quite a number of friendly request fulfilling people there.


    8/10 Content
    There is only little english content, but a lot of german content. Movies are uploaded in several different qualities and are uploaded in an acceptable frame of time.
    10/10 Speed
    With my 50 MBit/s connection, I almost always download in full speed. Can't tell how it is above the 50 MBit/s, but I also can't complain.
    8/10 Community
    Requests are worked off pretty fast (was this way at least for me), but there's not much of chatting going on in the board. However, not everyone needs a board on a tracker ;)

    Unfortunately, LoT is down. I heard that it will stay offline, but I don't have a reliable source for this information. If there's news on it, I will post it here.
