“Hey guys, let’s go hack into Evony and get 1 trillion of each resource! In fact, I think I’ll go hack Evony for unlimited gold and an unlimited army!”
Those are the words of an immature, un-intelligent Evony player who thinks he/she can hack Evony for his/her own gain.
First, let’s look at the definition of hack in this case:
Hack – “To use one’s skill in computer programming to gain illegal or unauthorized access to a file or network”
Now, let me explain the complexity of hacking Evony. Since Evony is a browser game, there is no way to actually “hack” into the game unless you obtain the hosting access. In order to gain the hosting access, a person would need to weedle the information out of someone, or attempt to keylog somebody with the information. All of this is completely illegal, and would land a person in jail for a very long time. The hacker would have to proceed to tampering with files on the hosting server, and end up getting caught in the end because it would be very obvious is somebody had unlimited troops upkeep, resources etc. Then as I stated, the hacker would go to jail.
So, in short, hacking Evony is nearly impossible, and would put you in prison for years. It’s not worth it, and there are no Evony “hacks” that you can download off the internet.
* If anyone is offering to give you an Evony hack, it probably contains a virus or keylogger to phish or crack your Evony account. I will go into phishing and account cracking in a later article.
