Southern Hemisphere always gets shafted when it comes to game releases. It takes half a day for any of our download sites to get the file, then half a day for us to get it. Usually its released on saturday morning in america.

This means we usually have any given file just in time to go to work on monday.

Why, why, didnt you release on a weekday like every single person wanted?

If you release on a thursday or a friday, it would have given people all over the world time enough to play it on the weekend.

Seeds, decent connection, and other people initially. It's got a bad rep for being slow, but it's not gonna instantly d/l at 500 kb/s all the time.

you need a client. forget about the official client(called Bittorent?), it is the worst program ever. I never really figured that one out, but it seems that it's mainly indented as a reference anyway.

Get BT++ or TorrentStorm, other clients are often full of spyware and other nasty features.

where to find other torrents than FH? can't tell you here :D

It's not slow as long as you have a good connection. The problem is it uses specific ports to connect to the internet that alot of isp's close or are closed by your own router or modem, you should check what port it uses and open that port up. I use azureaus (bittorent client) a lot and I get great speeds, the trailer of fh began at 20 kb/s, climbed to 120 kb/s in a matter of minutes and ended in 280 kb/s. Try reading the manual or faq's about the program they explain in detail what to do when you have very low speeds.
