Hmmm... I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you used to live in Varsity. I don't what's making me guess this, but it's 100% just a hunch that I'm going with. Totally of my own accord.

Hey guys, I use uTorrent and no matter what I do (even though I upload for days and days) my ratio sucks. I mean, I have not downloaded anything in weeks and left my computer uploading nonstop and still my ratio is .18

How do I fix this. Anyone experience this? I talked to the mods, but their suggestions didnt help...

And the weird thing is, I have a tonne of bonus credits, from all the uploading I do. But my ratio doesn't change!

Or, and bear with me, am I an idiot and this is how you are supposed to balance your ratio?

Unless you are one of the first seeders and/or have a seedbox your ratio will be hard to keep up. Also home internet upload speed is terrible and many are throttled. Download Free leech files and upload those they give you credit for uploading without penalizing you with the download.

I'm using https://ultraseedbox.com right now but I'm sure there are better/cheaper ones out there.

I happened upon a newly posted freeleech that i guessed would be popular so I downloaded it to try and get some uploaded credit. Being one of the first seeds, I was able to upload about 70% back so i earned a few GB of credit.

Otherwise, you're competing against seedboxes who will always have an upload advantage over you.

You get bonus credits simply for making your torrents available to share.

What I did was to jump on a ton of free torrents with a ton of leechers and slowly accumulate upload that way. You can get bonus points for up to 15 torrents. I downloaded a few free leech things that I don't even intend to listen to or watch. I just wanted more upload credit than download stats. (ie: Top gear collection, GOT Season 1-7... etc.)

Bonus points wise, you have to cash them out for upload credit. They don't automatically apply as upload credit. I think this is the only way to survive in general unless you really luck out in seeding something.

I think I've been slowly seeding things for about a month now and I probably downloaded nearly 400GB of freeleech data from Torrentday within 48 hours. I am only at around 42GB uploaded over the month.

I'd stop using uTorrent for one, its been known to have nefarious built in software/backdoors (maybe fixed now, im not sure).

Get qbTorrent or another tracker and see what happens.

Go to the front page and download the hottest thing on there and just let it upload.

I tried a few programs but migrated to transmission when fleeing with uTorrent. I love how light weight it is as a client. Vuze got way too damn bloated as well.

qbtorrent looks interesting though. It looks like an older version of uTorrent. I might consider trying it out if I ever need to install on a different machine.

Downloading the hottest thing doesn't necessarily work if you can't get a minimum ratio of 1 though. That's why I went with all the Freeleech large batch files that people will eventually download and whatever I upload is pure upload ratio.

Aside from internal encodes it's the same stuff as most other places.

Much harder for the movie companies to track you.
