  15. Треккер система трудится в фоновом порядке и не "съедает" дополнительные ресурсы компьютера. Глупо расходовать наличные на куплю лицензии с новейшей игрой. Только пару лет назад новая игра оказывалась исключительно в фирменных магазинах. В данный момент любимую игру достаточно приобрести в интернете на особых сайтах. Отличительной чертой треккер площадок является возможность дармовой скачки дистрибутивов любых размеров. Скачать популярную игрушку легко в рекордно короткий срок - скорость закачки BitTorrent платформы невозможно огромна, как к примеру тут скачать игры на пк через торрент. Основные запросы игрушки не сумеют запугать юных игроманов.
