Just weeks after torrents site Kickass Torrents was shut down following the arrest of alleged founder Artem Vaulin in Poland, another top player - Torrentz.eu - seems to have shut its portals today.

Torrentz.eu, touted to be the largest torrent meta-search engine, bid farewell to its millions of users.

Founded in 2003, the site became one of the most visited sites with millions of visitors per day.

After more than 13 years of service, the popular site announced its farewell just a few hours ago, that too without any warning, Torrentz Freak reported.

The homepage of the website is still functioning, though Torrentz has completely disabled its search functionality and removed all torrents links.

"Torrentz was a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines," a text read while searching for content.

Site's users are unable to login. Instead, they see a message, "Torrentz will always love you. Farewell."
