Do you think the 2017 hack will happen again?

This hack is part of Pixel Worlds history. It leaked a lot of unreleased items (that some actually did not end up being in the game at all) and pretty much broke pixel worlds that time. It was fun for the players but not for the devs who took a long time to clean it up. But, you think it would happen again? Vote in the poll and list your reason in the replies.

there have been duplication glitches and hacks over the time, its question of time when someone would do this again, if he has skills to hack these systems.

Exactly because since the game has evolved for a while, their security is stronger.

it is stronger, but you don’t need to be really pro hacker to hack this game, i think just no one wants to hack such a little game ;-;

I think it was in 2017, and no it won’t happen again.
It wasn’t actually a hack either, basically what happened was that the developers were stress testing the amount of dropped items a world could handle, and so they used admin powers to just spawn hundreds of random dropped items in a test world.
One mistake was that the test world was available on the Main servers too, so one player found out about the world and started messing around ad give items and stuff.

The fact that these “pro hackers” require stolen accounts to further promote their hacks, still shows that the hackers are still dependant on the community (The Greedy and Stupid part of it, specifically).

I doubt they will be able to crack the dev’s code, given the fact that they still require the “fallen side” of the community to do their own biddings.

They’ve started slacking with the prevention of hacks. It’s getting worse and worse as time goes by, the amount of moderation a slowing down quickly, and the communication from the devs has come to a complete halt. The veterans’ opinions are no longer as appreciated as they used to be, you know, the players who criticize the game because we love the game and have experience, wanting the game to be the best it can be.

A certain moderator has told me they’re finding ways to even make fake reports disguised as any players name.
That’s how my world got locked.

So, it wouldn’t be too far off to think something like this is bound to happen again.

The Hack happened in 2017, I don’t think it will happen again unless the devs make a similar mistake as they did in 2017.

I don’t even think jake can answer this question.

Ah yes, the IG “K” bot.

2017*

ive always wondering why its “K”?

It simply means “OK”

Just a shorter version for okay, also I think in that context it wouldn’t make sense.
