Comment: Exploiting Ratios is easy (Score 3, Interesting) 252 252

Easy way to get your ratio up is to join a site that only allows you two slots on the tracker at first. Either download two small files and seed them or upload two of your own torrents and stay connected to the tracker so you are using your two tracker slots.

Using azeurus (or any client which stores peer IP's) stop on of your seeding files and connect to a large file you want to download, let your client pick up some IP's or until you are getting the file at a decent speed.

Now stop your download and begin seeding again, when you restart your download you will connect to the clients and your download will be resumed but the tracker will not be updated with the data you are download. AFAIK users who you are leeching off will still be given credit for all the data you upload.

Worked on elite torrents and some of the sites I use now.
