Timed Sugar Drops

Now that King appears to have restored sugar drops to the players who had temporarily lost them, it appears that King has decided to try out a new twist to collecting sugar drops and that is by having them timed.  I am unfortunately in that group and it appears that some of the people who had lost their sugar drops are also in this group.  I decided to start this discussion so that people could talk about this new version and provide feedback to King and the community moderator @Jelly Jenny.
I personally do not like this new change.  I don't find it useful at all.  By the time I collect all the sugar drops, half the boosters will have expired.  I would collect drops daily to help me complete the new levels that are released every Wednesday, but collecting daily now with the timed drops just to complete old levels makes no sense and appears to be a waste of my time.  I just hope they bring back the original  version very soon!  I have included a screen shot for those people who still have the original sugar drops.

    What I cannot get to grips with is why are the same players, who had their sugar drop levels removed originally, and then after having them reinstalled, are now having the boosters timed. Why is King doing this?

    Actually @adylanfan - I always had the regular sugar drops and now I have the timed ones and I know some of the ones who lost them now have the old version back.  I have no idea how they 'randomly' choose who is in the various test groups, but it does seem unfair that some of the people who totally lost their drops now just have the timed version.  Maybe King wants to see how those people feel going from no drops to timed drops as opposed to someone like me who had drops and now just has timed drops.  (I'm just speculating here).

    I just played old level for the sugar drops, my inventory did not receive any credit.   I only get 15 min times booster.  It will not help me to challenge the new level in the future, The driving force behind play hard is save boosters.
    Now, The situation is like when I am full (no food needed), but you give me "limited time food". The food disappears within 15 minutes. It is really ridiculous and nothing to use, I like the original version, boosters can be stored, free to use.

    I also never lost the SD, but was only able to play for them with Firefox,
    Safari did not work. Now a couple of days ago suddenly all boosters were timed and there were no more hand switches and hammers to win. This is a bad move from King, since collecting SDs now is completely useless. They should know that some levels in the new episodes are impossible to pass without boosters, even the most skilled players have to use them for their YT-videos. So this has to be another trick by King to force people buying boosters after all the stored ones are used up. They are about to ruin this game for good. Please put back the normal boosters and remove the timed ones!

    I agree with the comments regarding the timed boosters now obtained by the sugar drop challenge. They are of no value whatsoever whilst the previous system of collecting the bonuses allowed the choice of usage plus that bonus would reappear during the course of the level. The timed ones occur once. Further, it would appear there are no longer the hammers and switches available arguably the most important of the bonuses. This would seem to be an extremely pointless change of no benefit whatsoever, in fact the opposite, ultimately limiting player's options.

    I agree with all of u regarding timed boosters. They are totally useless to me as by the time I collect my sugar drops the time has run out on the boosters. There is no point to them. After 6 weeks of having no sugar drops to now this...timed boosters...this is really upsetting. It seems like King is jerking us around. If this is what they are going to keep doing then I will find another game to play.

    KING, please take timers off the boosters.

    Great feedback everyone! Welcome to the community and thank you for voicing your opinions @addym, @Christina_S, @beccasdad!  I hope all of you will explore the community and visit different threads, enter contests to win gold bars, play some games and share some ideas. BTW - you might want to check out this fun poll: https://community.king.com/en/candy-crush-saga/discussion/258574/who-is-your-favorite-candy-crush-saga-character/p1?new=1

     King has listened and responded to feedback from the players in the past,  it just sometimes takes longer than other times.  Build-a-bot can now be used again on lower levels and they restored people's ability to be able to reset the board.  Hopefully King will listen and get rid of the timed drops.  Today is Wednesday and I haven't even started the 30 new levels yet but I will have to be much more cautious with my booster usage since I have the timed boosters at this time.  I am tagging the community moderator to help ensure our opinions are passed on to the game developers.

    @Jelly Jenny - can you please make sure the feedback from the players about the new 'timed' sugar drops gets back to them?  As you can see - it is a change we are definitely not fond of.  Thank you.
