Why cannot the Server-based games be hacked easily?


We all wonder why the server based games like Clash of Clans and Hay Day are not hacked generally. Here are the reasons why they can not be hacked easily.


  • Server – Server is designed to serve content.
  • Client – Client requests content from the Server, and displays them to the user. In most cases, the client is a web browser and the application.

Each programming refers to a code that runs on the specific machine, either the server’s or the client’s.


Server Side Code

Server side code resides on the web server. For every client, request codes are executed at server side and the result is sent to the client in a simple HTML format. But, the performance is relatively lower compared to client side code due to clints-server round trips. The client cannot see the business logic behind it, though it is stored on the server.

Client Side Code

Client side code resides at the client’s browser itself. It is executed at client side only. The user can easily see the code by View – > Source option. It is generally used in validation form like text field is empty or not, email address validation, etc. It is faster than the server based code. Server based code is responsible for executing and providing the executed code to the browser at the client side. The executed code only has the values or the results that are executed on the server. There are many applications out there that claim to be able to hack games such as Clash of Clans or hay day they are all fake, here’s why:

Any so-called ‘hacked version’ will not work because the data is on the server. Thus, editing of the data on the client side will then need to be confirmed by the server.

In other words, there is no way to hack such a game. If there was a way, someone would have figured it out anyway and spread the information, and then it would have to have been patched rapidly. These kinds of games are specifically designed for the people to not be able to hack into them. In order to do so, you need to get access to the server and alter the information from there that contains things like how many items(gems) you have. This in itself is an extremely difficult task because this information is very sensitive and secure. It is like if you were trying to gain information off of a website. It’s extremely rare that you will find a crack, and illegal too, but leaks do happen time and again due to the technical errors.
