Recently, EuReKA announced that he was leaving his own tracker (Awesome-HD) and looking for the best future. The tracker never achieved the popularity which he would have expected, so he just finally gave it up. EuReKA (also known as Rabomil) has announced a kind of collaboration with HD-Torrents – and quite unexpectedly. The users were redirected over Awesome-HD.com to HD-Torrents.org. The last one decided to open registration for the several days in honor of celebration.
That was just a top of the iceberg.
HD-Torrents.org was happy to announce that EuReKA, known for quality releases, has joined the team.
Awesome-HD in its turn announced that Rabomil has left for HD Torrents and taken his brand EuReKA there, wished him all the best and even asked the members not to flame him in the forums.
Then the story continued.
That was clear that members of Awesome-HD couldn't login on HD-Torrents until getting a new account ( sign ups were open ). It was also doubtful that the user upload credit could be imported there, and unknown if other guys would follow EuReKA’s move.
The strange thing came out in a little time. Awesome-HD members could still login to the site at the server. It became clear that Rabomil, leaving, took the Awesome-HD domain together with his brand.
Below is the explanation of the twisted story, made by one of the sides.
In reply, Awesome-HD published a true story as a history lesson, where they explained the reason of EuReKA leaving the tracker. That all began when the issues from his previous tracker, Bit-HDTV, reared their head. Rabomil turned out not to be able to handle the criticism (though creative one) from the users and began handing out absurd warnings and bannings to those who didn’t share his opinion. That resulted in banning one of the staff. It was decided then that he has to give up his admin position and go back to internal encoders. And so that was too much for Rabomil and he left taking down domain with him as ‘a last ditch attempt of sabotage’. Although he intended to give them time till next month, he took down the domain in less than an hour. The staff of Awesome-HD had to work the entire night to get the site up on the new domain - Awesome-HD.net. Consequently, all the members had to re-download all the files.
Now, HD-Torrent lists about eight thousand active torrents, while Awesome-HD stats is:
The question is - will that be the last HD tracker for Rabolim?
