    King - You need to allow a player to restart or a bunch of us will quit the game.  Why would you make the game harder?

    Simple.  To make more money for them.  We'd lose our boosters and lives quicker.  

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

    I found this site searching to see why this had changed... I’ve registered in this forum just to say I’ll be deleting the game now  :p it’s ruined it for me!!
    To funny, I did the same exact thing. Over the past month I spent a few hundred dollars on coins, well no more. I was already quitting the game to find another that is not as divisive when I found this forum, if anyone has suggestions please let me know. From the many reviews, it appears many other invested users will be doing the same. I’m sure King considered this and determined ultimately the return on investment (ROI) for the change was worth it, let’s see if their right!  My suspicion is they will be loosing more revenue then they expected, and I for one will not come back even if they revert the change, simply because of the way they presented it, calling it a fix when it was obviously a way to generate even more revenue (users will need to buy more coins to get more lives and boosts as they no longer can reset boards, created at “random”, lol). Sounds like the softening profits will continue to decline, and the “fix” intended to improve the falling profits will actually make it worse. Whoever came up with this “fix” should start polishing up their resume, in time the Executives are going to see this was a terrible idea. Farewell, best wishes to any remaining sheep, lamb is tasty. 😊

    It was definitely a “fix”, it just wasn’t a fix for a glitch, instead a fix to increase profits. ruined it for me!!

    Over the past month I spent a few hundred dollars on coins, well no more. I truly enjoyed the game, and accepted the incremental changes that gradually eroded the quality and value in the name of profits, though this was the final straw. If anyone has suggestions on other games I can play to replace this please let me know.

    Lol I’m stuck on a level that has exactly 9 candies to start and the rest is marmalade, licorice, chocolate, meringue a whole line of popcorn blockers.  And twice now have gotten a coconut wheel under the marmalade. Gtfo king

    If they don't fix the issue with exiting the game I will no longer be playing this game cause i'll be stuck on one level for way to long. So fix this issue or I'm out .

    You will not "back down" from your stand against letting players that have spent countless hours playing have ONE advantage  over the game.
    WHERE ARE MY BOOSTER VIDEOS??? I doubt that your ad sponsors are thrilled with paying for ad space to a select few rather than the entire captive audience. I am over level 2400 and its IMPOSSIBLE to play without boosters. I am on a fixed income and cannot afford to pay up play a FREE game. 
    So thanks for sucking ALL of the fun out of the only game I ever played online. Thanks for being SO GREEDY that you can't let players have the "pleasure" of watching the same video ad over and over and over, because YOU want them to buy YOUR product. Is that part is the contract you have with your advertisers? Is there a "bare minimum" number of players that you have to push the videos onto? Are you pushing NO BOOSTER updates to the players at higher levels in the hopes that they'll cave and buy your boosters? 

    I call for a BAN ON BOOSTER PURCHASES! Is it really worth spending your money on a VIDEO GAME that's FREE??? I'm quite sure that the number of players that don't have the money to pay to play are not causing any of the King developers to go hungry!!

    Patience is a virtue. Peace is a journey. ✌😎🦎

    So, maybe now you will decide to stop modifying levels by reducing the number of moves making it very difficult for us to pass and waste all of our boosters.  This “fix” is total outrage because the reset was only real chance for us to get close to level 6000 by getting a lucky board to beat these ridiculously hard levels.  I am currently at level 5232 and you know what I think it is finally time to stop playing this game.  Shame! Shame! 😡😔

    Dear Community,

    Of course we have to fix this! It allows players a slight advantage in dealing with the random element in some levels. We would rather this be accomplished through purchases of gold or boosters. 

    And that says it all right there doesn't it?!  Not sure who will be left playing to help you out with those extra purchases you're hoping to achieve.... If revenue is down for this product this isn't likely to be a profitable solution to the problem. That said, if you're looking to wind the product down and divert your resources to your other newer products I think you've hit the mark!

    Once again the king company is lying to its players. Oh well....no more candy crush for me...

    Well, I guess King Games is happy to “fix” this issue, but I’m not. Even with this extra capability I have been spending altogether too much money on this game. Looks like you’ll be losing somewhere around $300/month from me. You’ve cured my addiction.
