    Pros
    Hack The Box Academy is an amazing but challenging place to learn. The labs included in the modules are awesome.
    I really appreciated the gamified approach, maintaining the experience graceful but at the same time useful for learning.
    Thanks to HackTheBox Academy I rediscovered my passion for hacking. Every module is wonderfully written.
    Cons
    Sometimes infrastructure is not 100% working, and the web contains several less severe bugs. I had several issues with the bugs in the web and infrastructure.
    It gets difficult at times, and any small mistakes in the answers by the author can result in hours of wasted time trying to figure out the "solution.
    Without being biased, I did not find something least satisfying about the platform.
