- HOW DO I GET INTO A PRIVATE TRACKER?
- Since the departure of what.cd in November 2016, all of the starting trackers are currently considered to be shit. The best starting place is MyAnonamouse (MAM) and the invite selection is generally said to be poor quality as of December 2016. Read below for specifics on how to get invites to private trackers but be warned, there is no easy open path currently.
- WHAT IS THE CABAL?
- The cabal is the "inner circle" of private trackers. Admins of cabal trackers collaborate on banning cheaters/bad users in their respective communities, along with typically restricting official recruitment threads to fellow cabal trackers. Cabal trackers genreally have a higher quality swarm due to the requirements to be invited and maintain membership in good standing. AB and PTH are "quasicabal" trackersGGN and AHD are sometimes considered cabal trackers. HDB is traditionally seen as above the cabal, at the top of the pyramid of private trackers.
