The usual users of pirated content, in the middle of the last year of 2016 mourned the surprising closure of which at that moment was the most important torrent links portal of the world, KickassTorrents.
However a few months later, as expected from some, the web resurfaced from its ashes, something that in the past has already happened with other similar alternatives. Specifically, the popular torrent site was back in operation shortly before the arrival of the Christmas holidays, news that a good part of the community received with joy. However, after a few weeks since its reappearance, we can say that today the new KickassTorrents has not had the success among users that was expected in the beginning.
In fact it has not reached the number of visits that it had before its closure, whereas other alternatives that are direct competition of this portal like Pirate Bay, ExtraTorrent, 1337x or Rarbg, continue to grow to this day.
KickassTorrents returned in late 2016 with its new domain, it was initially thought that it would take back its old place as leader of the webs of torrents around the world. However it seems that this will be a very complicated task for the new KAT, since other alternative sites have taken the lead.
KickassTorrents has been outdone by competition
We refer to other portals as widespread and known as The Pirate Bay, Extratorrent or 1337x, among others, that continue to grow in popularity while KickassTorrents stays behind. As we have said, before the disappearance and the arrest of his administrator by the FBI, KickassTorrents was the most popular site in the world in these proceedings, far exceeding the current number one, The Pirate Bay. Therefore, it seems difficult for the torrent website to return to occupy the place of honor on the podium, more if we consider that its main competitors have taken things very seriously to provide a better service to users and thus C the position to KAT.
A good part of the users after its closure have passed to The Pirate Bay, Rarbg, 1337x and ExtraTorrent. However the world of sites with links to copyrighted content is very unstable and can turn around in a matter of days, since you never know what can happen in regards to legal issues with this type of websites.
