Do you have recorded data for strategies in CCFS?
I prefer objective data for evaluating how good or bad CCFS game strategies work in practice!
One strategy is to backtrack to a multi-screen level with only 4 colors of candies to complete a Daily Quest to match over 1,000 candies of a specific color:
To match 1200 Blue Candies, I backtracked to 3-screen Level 4390 and used Misty and Odus to match 1,098 Blue Candies with 9 lives, so I matched an average of 122 Blue Candies per life.
To match 1400 Yellow Candies, my partner backtracked to 3-screen Level 4410 and used Toll, Yeti, and Rachel to match 1,349 Yellow Candies with 7 lives, so she matched an average of 193 Yellow Candies per life.
We started doing this strategy because with the typical single-screen level with 5 colors of candies, we found that we matched far less than 100 candies of a specific color per life, on the average.
A second strategy involves when to use Gold Bars to buy extra moves at the end of normal play at a specific level. Level 3963 was particularly difficult for me, so I kept track of how many moves I was offered for 10 Gold Bars at the end of each game. I never actually used the Gold Bars to purchase those extra moves, but I was surprised to that after my 12th loss I was offered an extra “+3” moves for the Gold Bars, after the 13th loss I was offered “+6” extra moves for the Gold Bars, after the 14th loss I was offered “+9” extra moves, after the 15th loss I was offered “+10” extra moves, but then it seemed to max out because on the 16th loss I was also offered “+10” extra moves for the Gold Bars. This data collection stopped because I finally won Level 3963 on the 17th try and advanced to the next level. Has anyone else experienced these escalating offers of extra moves for your Gold Bars? If so, one strategy is to play a difficult level at least 15 times in order to get the maximum of extra moves “+10” for your Gold Bars!
Happy Crushing, folks!
