Slavehack Legacy was released on March 4th, 2018. How have things been going so far and what sort of feedback did we get?...
The Slavehack Legacy release went off without a hitch! We immediately saw a nice influx of players open up Legacy and simply fall back in to those old memories of playing this 12 year old game! So, how is it going after the first week? Let's check out the leaderboard on Slavehack Legacy and see who is on top to start:
Slavehack Legacy Leaderboard
The user bobokev really started off well and took an early lead. He has been battling against the user BornLiveDie for the top spot on the Slavehack Legacy leaderboard.
Reception has been pretty well for players coming from Slavehack 1, however the pace is a tad bit slower for players who have never played Slavehack 1 before, so we noticed a trend where Slavehack 2 players who never played Slavehack 1 try Slavehack Legacy for only a short bit of time before reverting back to Slavehack 2. This was to be expected however.
Slavehack 2 donation rewards carried over to Slavehack Legacy as well allowing players to unlock some nice features in Slavehack Legacy. Take a look at these below:
Overall, Slavehack Legacy seems to run faster than Slavehack 1 which provides players with a nice baseline to succeed in the game at a much faster rate. We also added a few easter eggs and achievements in to the game to allow a small bit of fun for players making the switch over to Slavehack Legacy.
Slavehack Legacy can be accessed in-game in 2 different ways. The first way is to click and then select the icon , this opens the full Slavehack Legacy game in the current browser tab. The second way allows you to access Slavehack Legacy from a window inside Slavehack 2. To do this, find your way to the Slavehack NPC and find the software named Slavehack Legacy and download it. You can then run the software from your File Explorer by clicking and then finding and clicking the file name. You can always just click this direct link as well to open up the Legacy edition: Slavehack Legacy

Hey there everyone. Let's take a look at a few Pro-Tips from our friends in the eXcision clan...
When you play Slavehack 2 long enough, you certainly pick up a set of traits and shortcuts. You also see updates as they become live, so there may be some things you are not aware of that you can do. These are called "Pro-Tips". Let's take a look at some of these Pro-Tips brought to you by the eXcision clan.
Alternate Malware Creator Levels:
By default, the Malware Creator will create Malware and Viruses as level 1.0. It is actually possible to specify any level less than or equal to the level of the Malware Creator. This is great when your target has a low amount of disk space or maybe you want a shorter upload time. Check the terminal command "make" to see help on using this command more efficiently.
It is definitely easy to just upload a miner virus and wait for that sweet collection time however, you can actually reduce collection time and optimize your maximum benefits. The first thing is that the calculation on mining payouts is dependent upon the amount of CPU that a target has. Secondly, the maximum benefit is determined by the other mining viruses on the target. Let's see how this works below:
The game features a built-in Notepad which can be found from the Menu. The reason why eXcision recommends using the Notepad over in-game text files is simply because an attacker can not read your Notepad. As an added benefit; The Notepad will automatically save what you type in to it.
As you progress in the game will earn Prestige Benefits which make the game a little more easier for you. Here is a lok at the some of the benefits as you prestige that either increase or decrease depending on the progression ability:
Always keep these in mind as you prestige, since noticing something like a decreased Whois Cost is a massive benefit to pay attention to.
Those are definitely a great set of Pro-Tips by the eXcision clan and Stvorms so be sure to drop him a line in the game chat next time you see him. Do you have a Pro-Tip that you think we should add? Let us know in the comments below.
Certainly 2017-2018 has been a long and wild ride, let's take a look at some game statistics...
When we first decided to release Slavehack 2 we really did not expect as much of a player base as we got. I have to say, that some of you should probably take breaks from time to time! Let's gander at some numbers we happened to gather from the games database and other various long boring log files we formatted to be less boring!
It has certainly been a busy time over these last few months as you can see from the statistics above. We still have a long road to go in the development process and we certainly appreciate all of the players who take the time to play our game!
Was there a statistic not provided that you would like to see? Let me know in the comments below.
Hey there Hackers, Crackers and Script Kiddies. We have a list of things new for 2018...
2017 was certainly a big year for Slavehack 2 in the Online Hacking Game genre. Slavehack 2.01 was released on July 9th, 2017 with a rocky set of bare features for players to kick at and break. Since then we have seen tremendous growth not only in playerbase and interactivity, but in development as well.
Since that time we have seen great additions, like faction wars, missions, complete improvement rewrites of entire features, a new rewards system, loot crates, NPC API's, a brand new live chat system, a ton of new in-game software, collectible items, etc. The list goes on. We have also seen some downsides as well, like Rey breaking from development to focus on work, server attacks, bots, cheaters, spammers, etc. Through those good times and bad times, you, the players, stuck with us. We will always be here for our playerbase!
With the re-release of Slavehack 1 coming to the Slavehack 2 server we will see some awesome old school gameplay happening with our playerbase. This re-release intends to be exactly like the original except the ShoutBox replaced with the Slavehack 2 Live Chat and some much needed old bug fixes. This is definitely going to be a favorite of the Slavehack fans who played the original and want to get back to a simpler gameplay style with a more relaxed feel. This released is planned for March 4th, 2018.
Clans are going to be making a come back this year in Slavehack 2. A feature for Clans is definitely a highly requested fan favorite. You will be able to join Clans of your friends or strangers and help get your new clan to the top of the leaderboard, or even join Clans of your enemies to destroy their infrastructure. Players will be able to create new Clans as well. Clan Wars is definitely going to be a big part of 2018 as we move in to more team styled missions and activities so get ready to have some fun there.
As we cruise through the new year, players will be seeing a lot more virus and malware types coming along for the in-game software. More interactions between players is key and builds momentum and a bit of tension so adding these new items will definitely be a part of the game plan. Keep a look out throughout the year for these as they become available.
We have all seen these really good ideas on the Forum and 2018 is the year these are going to start getting implemented. If you put an idea on the forum and wondered where the feature is, then chances are you are in for a happy surprise this year as we expand more in to creating player recommended features to expand gameplay even further and allow for some awesome new features to come from that.
That's right. Battle head to head with other Factions to earn awesome rewards and benefits with Faction Wars this year as well. The top Faction in a Faction war gets a special prize along with even more special prizes for the top players of each Faction, so be ready for some hot Faction Action coming in 2018.
As most of you already know this can never be a complete list, as we add stuff to the game all the time and improve game dynamics and existing features as well, so these highlights are just a few things out of the many new awesome features coming in 2018!
