    ...still wondering, if they have fixed it for me, why have they not done so for everyone else?

    @Fr_Cayman

    King tries out new ideas for the game on us players. They roll out things to different groups at different times. Happy for you that you got the regular boosters back. 🙃

    I agree completely. Please revert back to the untimed boosters. 
  • Fr_CaymanFr_Cayman Posts: 66 Level 3
    It ridiculous.  And this buildabot here one moment, then gone, then back again on an ongoing basis?  No need for that.  I had buildabot, put the game down to get another coffee, came back and it's gone again.

    That just reeks of ineptitude.

    Exactly! I was going to play after several wins using the Buildabot boosters. Mine is gone too; taking with it my boosters that I won!!! What’s going on with King???? The programmers need to make this epic fail right!!! Get rid of timed boosters when you come back from vacation next month and fix the glitches!

    I guess the vote is by comment. Please eliminate the timed boosters, they are useless. Go back to accruing boosters.

    I also say eliminate the timed boosters and go back to the untimed boosters and gold bars. I cannot accumulate gold bars anymore now that they have timed boosters when you accumulate sugar drops. It also seems that when I get the timed booster it’s free not for 15 min and I can use it if I have no more lives or I’m on a level that doesn’t use that booster. So it seems most of the time they are worthless. The time has run out for you to use it.  Not always, but for the majority of the time.

    You do not need to claim the timed boosters immediately. Just go do something else for a couple of hours  while you build up lives. Then go back to the game and use them. I agree, in most case they are worthless, but the UFO Timed Booster did help me on a couple of levels in the low 211*  series of the game. But I also want it to go back to the way it was so I can build up my booster inventory for when I really need to use them.

    Wow! A UFO timed booster??? I have not seen that yet, that would be helpful.

    As for not having to claim immediately...maybe that is a change, I found in the past if I don't claim within a certain amount of time (I haven't timed it exactly, but it's around 1 minute), then the game automatically goes back to the main board and I don't get the prize.

    This CC game is becoming absolutely ridiculous!!. Timed boosters!!!...after 48 hours you are suppose to have a chance for a Free spin but when you go to spin it says PLAY for 7 gold bars. Impossible to get gold bars with the new sugar drop machine the developers have decided to try!!! And now when I do win "THE DYNAMIC DUO" and get awarded a1 hour timed booster it doesn't show up in my game!!!!! SO FRUSTRATING!!!

    I agree to eliminate the timed boosters, or at least allow players to choose when to use them.  
    Most of the time, I play in between doing other things and can’t keep playing just because I get a 15 minute booster, so it’s a total waste.
    The other issue I have is that I get boosters that do not apply to the levels I am playing.  Today I got a 15 minute check booster- only had  time to play one level and I couldn’t use the booster.
    I’m not one to go back to collect boosters via sugar drops, but if I earn a booster while playing, I’d like the opportunity to actually use it.
