Sturrurr Posted May 23, 2012 Report Share Posted May 23, 2012 Hello community,I have been downloading quite a few torrents lately, more than I usually do anyway, and I have come across an interesting statistic, and that is I seem to upload far more than I download to individual peers. This is when I am downloading a file by the way, it doesn't matter what the file is I seem to upload far quicker than I download. A file that is meant to be shared and I get next to nothing in download speed yet the other person hogs all of my upload. My internet connection is fine, and on occasion I can get speeds of 5-10MB especially on the Game Of Thrones downloads, but in every other case I'm uploading a huge amount to different people, and I receive barely nothing in return even though their percentage is usually much higher than mine.I don't mind sharing I really don't, but when I'm uploading as I'm downloading other IP's seem to be taking the piss. Taking all of my upload and giving nothing in return. Sharing is sharing I understand that. When I seed a file I tend to keep it for a while so I can help people download the file that bit quicker with my assistance, but as I'm downloading a file I don't sit too kindly when someone is taking all of my upload and I'm gaining 2KB from them for every second. Is there anything I can do? Or is this normal in torrents? If I could I would like to ban IP's that keep doing this, but that person could be uploading to somebody else or he might not, I can't know for sure. I just can't stand uploading a file to people very quickly when mine is running so slowly. Once the download is finished I don't really care who gets my upload as I have the torrent downloaded by then. http://oi45.tinypic.com/lec07.jpgMy download was going a little quicker when I took the screenshot but for a while it was between 50KB and 75KB when other people was taking all of my upload and downloading the file much quicker. I just wanted to note that I don't have a problem with downloading files on Utorrent by the way. Some download very quickly and others take longer, I understand that, but what I don't understand is how somebody with an higher percentage can be taking all of my upload and giving nothing in return. It happens all the time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
