Dachs' delivery service tasks

    I am a chatty and windy woman.

    Excuse me please. Sometimes I cannot be silent. And I can't help myself)))))))

  • Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?

    Hi @ElenaVorona, I love talkative people. I myself am more of the quiet and thoughtful type. 

    I think the idea that only the team leader should swap tasks is a good approach.

    As I mentioned earlier, there are many members of the community in my team, so we can exchange information via PM. There are also random members whose avatar I have seen completing the tasks and who have also contributed to the success of the delivery service.

    5 of our members did not have the event at all. This can happen in all teams. That's why a chat feature in the team would be helpful so that everyone knows that it's not a bad intention if someone can't complete tasks.  

    What would also be helpful (but unfortunately not available) is that a player can ask for life. It often happened to me with the super difficult levels that I would have liked to do the task, but ran out of life and had to wait. 

    In the last days of the delivery service, we no longer had the tasks with 150 stars. Rather, we had "combine color bomb with fish" and "combine color bomb with wrapped candy" only in new levels. I found these tasks much more difficult. You need a board where there is space so you can create these combinations. In my current episode, unfortunately, I only had boards that contained many blockers and where licorice snakes were constantly coming from above. That made it very difficult for me to help the team.

    Maybe we should set up a thread at the next delivery service. There we could post which tasks are set for which delivery. From this one could deduce which tasks are pleasant for us. And we could say what we would like to see in an exchange of tasks.

    @DieOmimi I think that having the team leader be able to switch a Team Task for a different one is good as our teams have different strengths and weaknesses. A good team leader would learn which tasks were most difficult for their team and then swap that one out if they see it in a new Delivery.

    Your idea of posting what the DDS deliveries contain so that team leaders know what to expect next would be helpful. BUT my partner and I both lead DDS teams and we have compared out DDS deliveries, and what we have found is that the 6 Team Tasks seem to be randomly selected for each team and for each delivery as we always get different sets of Team Tasks for our respective teams.

    I have found that levels which have 3 or 4 colors of candies and some open area to work with, are more amenable to creating “Color Bomb + Fish/Striped/Wrapped Candy” , particularly if that level has Tifi for the Fish, Odus for the Striped, and Yeti for the Wrapped Candy. Tifi and Odus seem programmed to preferentially throw a Fish or Striped Candy right next to the Color Bomb, but Yeti is NOT. Yeti will throw the Wrapped Candy next to a Fish or a Striped Candy or a Wrapped Candy BEFORE he will throw it next to a Color Bomb. That is frustrating and requires much more maneuvering to get the Color Bomb and Wrapped Candy together , so I can only make 1-3 such combinations per attempt, and making 20 such combinations thus takes several hours. I do wish they could shift Yeti’s programming a for this as the Color Bomb + Wrapped Candy combination is almost always more widely destructive.

    Yes @Uncle_Bob I agree that it is much more difficult to combine color bomb with wrapped ones. The other tasks could be done faster. 

    I think it's great that you and your partner have led different teams and compared the tasks. 

    At the next delivery I will take screenshots (I hope I don't forget) so that we can list what tasks there are at all. 

    A next step could then be that we set up a vote in the community as to which tasks are not or least desired. I can't promise if the studio will listen to us. But if we do nothing, we will not change anything.

    Just to quote you @Uncle_Bob

    "Tifi and Odus seem programmed to preferentially throw a Fish or Striped Candy right next to the Color Bomb, but Yeti is NOT. Yeti will throw the Wrapped Candy next to a Fish or a Striped Candy or a Wrapped Candy BEFORE he will throw it next to a Color Bomb."

    The characters NEED to work differently. If they all worked exactly the same, then there wouldn't be any need for different characters,

    If I must say: We can keep these tasks but we have to NERF some of them. Take some example:

    150 stars: This is as bad as "only tasks from passed levels count" and those daily blocker quests. Nerfing to 50 stars shall be reasonable.

    Combinations involving color bomb: Although one of them may be slightly easier with Sweet Streak, it is not guaranteed because it happens before starting boosters and may be ruined. Scaling with other combination tasks, we shall have them nerfed to 10-14 times for each type. This shall go much lower for a twin color bomb task, that 7 is the most.

    New classic levels: Actually this one counts hard and super hard levels, but if more team members are stuck at end of road, this task becomes harder to deal with. We can nerf it to 12-15.

    Many thanks to all the guys from the Studio who participated in changing the tasks for the Delivery.

    The game has become much more interesting. Gone are these endless tasks for the passage of levels. Stupid, monotonous tasks.

    Previously, the team completed half of the tasks (of various topics) very quickly (sometimes in 2-3 hours). And then my guys did nothing but complete tasks on the topic "pass a level, pass a level, pass a level ..."

    It's not boring now.

    Are you tired of collecting striped candy? No problem. Collect chocolate bombs.

    Are you tired of collecting stars? Switch to another task for a while. Collect fish or gain moves. Then you will return to the stars again, and then again to the fish.

    A change in the type of activity of an individual always has a good effect on the mood and strength with which a person works or "works")))

    You guys did a great job. Thanks.
