Acid isn’t by any means a newcomer to the BitTorrent scene. The site is set to celebrate its fifth birthday in a couple of months time, in January 2011. However, not a lot has been written about this tracker on BT forums or blogs – this is probably due AL’s strict rules regarding unwanted publicity. Despite being a closed community, nearly 20000 members have already made it their torrenting home ( this is without counting the 12k+ users who got banned from AL for various reasons). The site currently tracks around 12000 torrents, making it one of the larger general trackers out there.
No matter how old a BitTorrent tracker is, it wouldn’t be successful without a good community or a content rich torrent index. Thankfully, ACiD has both. It’s staff are some of the friendliest folks around and it has a loyal user base who are great at filling requests and helping each other out. Download speeds are pretty good and pre times are decent. And it’s worth mentioning that AL’s pre times, specially for TV releases, have definitely improved over the last couple of months. You can find pretty much all major movie, music, appz, game, ebook and other releases on this tracker. But that’s not all – in addition to common scene and p2p releases, AL tracks a lot of exclusive torrents and packs. These can usually be identified by the presence of tags ‘TeamAcid’, ‘RequestAcid’, ‘Acid’, ‘ACID INT’, etc in torrent title.
