Most torrent clients only need one port for all torrents (I think they
use both udp and tcp). If you need one port for each, you should use
another one.

archers with enough bandwidth will join us!

We should, people should try the torrents first. But we need enough
seedeers, so that they will actually be faster than ftp.
