- HOW DO I GET INTO A PRIVATE TRACKER?
- Since the departure of What.CD in November 2016, the tracker RPG has become more difficult. RED is starting to shape up though, and MAM remains viable.
- WHAT IS THE CABAL?
- The cabal is the "inner circle" of private trackers. Admins of cabal trackers collaborate on banning cheaters and bad users in their respective communities, along with typically restricting official recruitment threads to fellow cabal trackers. Cabal trackers generally have a higher quality swarm due to the requirements to be invited and maintain membership in good standing. AB and RED are notable "quasi-cabal" trackers. GGn and AHD are sometimes considered cabal. HDB is traditionally seen as above the cabal, at the top of the pyramid of private trackers.
