Apparently Nyaa's wasn't even https, but would add a bit more security + be one step ahead.

I agree, https for the announce tracker would be nice.

HTTPS isn't commonly used for trackers because of the increased overhead and how many clients it breaks. A lot of private trackers tried to introduce HTTPS over the last 6 months or so following WCD's demise and almost immediately reverted it or added an option for users to still use HTTP because most of their seedboxes immediately failed to connect.

I'd introduce it as an option but not require it.
