This passed summer when KickassTorrents was shut down, many users lost their beloved community aswell as a reliable place to find torrents.
Shortly after, a very active community of KAT admins, moderators and forum members, took action and relaunched the forum part of the site as Katcr.co, with the hope to re-add torrents in the near future.
As of a few days back, the team behind KATcr proudly announced the launch of a fully operational torrent index on Katcr.co, which looks pretty much identical to the original KickassTorrents.
Unfortunately the site is starting with a fresh user database but many members of the original staff, and major uploaders are on board. This means the site will be populated with a variety of content right from the start.
“The majority of our original Staff, Admins and Moderation team joined us after Kat.cr went down – which is something we’re very proud of. This shows the loyalty, dedication and real love for KAT that we all share,” The KATcr team revealed to TF.
They also go on to say, “We have all our major uploaders on board and they continued to share tirelessly even before the torrent engines returned. The torrent community can continue to expect to see uploads from all the names they know and trust.”
Over the past months, many sketchy KAT clones and mirrors emerged claiming to be the real KickassTorrents. Although the original site is still gone, KATcr is now the closet thing to the iconic torrent community. With many of the original team now helming the site, you should feel right at home.
