    I don't understand why they didn't just launch it on Steam since it was voted and approved by Green Light.

    I am attempting GF download...seems to be timing out...wow can't even load game front.com main page.

    Man these guys are having a party tonight I bet. As well they should!

    Boy, is that a good question.

    Here is a torrent with updated tracker from /r/gaming (can't try it myself; at work):

    Well maybe they weren't prepared for the demand...though I am really not sure if that was foolish and poor foresight or not. How do you gauge such a thing in this type of case?

    If not for BT this would be even uglier...

    If you add some more trackers to the torrent it starts to pick up. Currently ticking along at 2.8MB/s
    I will leave mine up and seeding(my 40/40 connection with the 70 upload...)

    Coming from /r/gaming, full list of trackers here:
    Code:
    udp://tracker.istole.it:80/announce
    
    udp://tracker.1337x.org:80/announce
    
    http://www.gameupdates.org/announce.php

    udp://fr33domtracker.h33t.com:3310/announce
    
    http://exodus.desync.com:6969/announce
    I pasted that into uTorrent, works fine.

    And here's a webseed:
    Code:
    http://www.openmirror.in/
    add the webseed like so:

    Edit: DONE!!! :rockout: Mr. Freeman we have some catching up to do :cool:

    Superfast peers are coming and going, I can't seem to hold onto any, however at least the openmirror is holding steady.

    I bounce between 400KB/s to just under 2MB/s, I've limited upload to 100KB/s for now, I don't have the connection to go higher without killing download speeds

    Cancelled the web download and went back to torrent after reading about the web seed. Back to 30kb/s. :shadedshu

    Edit - I take that back. Now at 250kb/s
