    @Sofia1992 The problem is that players are dropping out. I play a mini-game called Fantastic Five. Usually all of us in my team have points and together we earn boosters. This is todays tally from my team. Obviously people are not playing. (I actually won a level but was not credited - a whole other issue.) I don't wish to show anger to you, but to make urgent the need to make changes. I used to code (in a limited way). Anything can be brought back.

    Don't bother Elsa. Seriously - do you not get it? Welcoming people who only came here to tell you we're quitting because they loused the game up with ultimate greed and complete disrespect to loyal users of 6-7 years?

    What is not to get?

    Fix it or we leave. Restart levels, and go backwards to build up boosters. Its as simple as that - or your beloved platform will collapse.

    We still paid money each month doing this, now CCS get nothing at all, and multitudes leaving. Within a short time, this will collapse if they do not 'unfix'.

    Don't be fooled - the addicts will soon grow tired of propping you up, by then we the masses will be gone.

    Really - it is that simple. Take that back to the money hungry disrespectful absolute total fools who messed the game up, sooner than later. You've already lost so many it is scary.

    The delete option is far easier than continuously trying to get this through greedy thick skulls. Read the history of this one topic alone. 32 pages in how many days?

    You idiots. You cannot defend this stupidity - to try makes you look as dumb as they are. (respectfully)

    What do you think I am not getting?  @TurboTim66, you have been here in this community for how long?  I've been listening and reading complaints for how long?  Oh yes, 4 years as a Superstar plus another year prior to that.  Can I share something with you?  So many times in the past players came here threatening to quit.  Yet the data showed that the numbers never went down.  I found it hard to believe.  We are now up to 32 pages, should I take a count of how many have actually quit?  Ok, maybe this time you guys are really not playing this week but for everyone of you that chooses to walk away this week, a new player will join.  So I don't know how they collect their data but I was told many times that their data team always says that the numbers haven't gone done.  Yes, perhaps this time it will be the long time players who walk away, but for me, I am just cutting back.  Addicted or not, I can still enjoy the game when the levels are not insane.  I have never ever tried to reset a level because I didn't like it.  My brain never worked like that, just as it doesn't work like a lot of players who can look at the board to decide what my next move should be.  I see a possible 3 and go for it!  That is how my brain works.  I can tell you that most of the time I end the level half way through when I see that I won't be able to finish it.  I bet there are other players out there that do as I do but they just aren't coming here to express that.  I am! 

    I don't know if I can say this or not but if I were part of a team who created the game, a programmer, I might take a different approach but I am not a programmer nor am I a part of their team.  We have to wait and see if the team does something about this.  Thank you for expressing your thoughts here.

    Don't shoot the messenger & Get over it....??

    It's completely understandable that saying "you" in the comments may feel like a personal attack to the "superstars" when, in fact, it's not and you know it. It's just easier to say then "the developers and King". However, the words USED my the messenger invoked the assumption of ownership. He said "WE would rather you buy gold and boosters". 

    You said that the numbers of players never really takes a hit when the going gets tough and the loyal get going instead of going through the frustration of trying to beat ridiculously difficult levels. That may be true, but that's not the real point. The players that could were already spending money and now they are NOT. The more people come to the discussion to see why they can't reset, the more people spread the word, the greater the impact. 

    I haven't been playing for years, I stopped because it was so difficult and was no fun. Friends Saga is way harder than necessary as well. I loved it until the day came that I had spent days trying to beat a level that wasn't even in the 1000's. I recently opened CCS again and was thrilled to see the ability to get boosters by watching video ads. I have been playing every day since. Now these videos are also gone. 
    The maddening part about that is the fact that no too players have the same game opportunities to win races, spin for extra moves, watch ads, or even build the Booster Bot. My Mom had no videos on her tablet but did on her phone. I had them on both. She has never laid eyes on Booster Bot or Tiffi's holiday boosters. That is simply not fair.
    It's also not fair for you to have contests to beat high scores when the Windows platform gives those players such a HUGE advantage over mobile players. They are able to score in the tens of millions while mobile players are lucky to just get into the low millions. 

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

    @Sofia1992, King can bring it back. It's called code.they built it once they can build it again. Mistake or not they jacked it up and pissed off the majority of the CC community. Now they need to restore faith. Until then I have stopped playing and hope the rest of the community joins the #boycottKingCC

    No one is literally blaming the community manager or whoever announced this. How old are you people who are getting offended by the use of “you” in the responses to this post? Makes no sense. If you work for King and make this kind of announcement and people respond, you represent the company. When clients call me at my place of business and say “you did this or that and I’m upset” I know they aren’t saying me personally but the law firm I work for. 
    People are clearly not happy with this decision. Time will tell if it was a smart business decision or not. Personally, I’m playing a fraction of what I used to. Just not nearly as fun this way. Life will go on...

    Hello Everyone!

    We are not here to argue with each other, we are here to be heard!
    It is unfortunate that we can't speak directly to King Games and the Team.
    We have to go with whoever can relay our message. @Pounawea's resilience
    is put to the test with this bombshell that was recently dropped by King
    at this time of the year. I surely hope that he understands how we feel in
    the short period of time he has been with us in this Community.
    Please be respectful of your co-members' opinions!
    If you don't agree with any of them, keep it to yourself!
    We are not here to prove who is better than the other,
    we are all here for one thing and one thing alone
    and that is to bring back the Free Board Reset.

    Please put your differences aside
    and focus
    on what really matters the most:

    Restoration of Free Board Reset.

    Thank you!

    So king decides to tell me I happen to be a random selection while they test out this new feature... newsflash not happy with this change it back
  • Sofia1992Sofia1992 Posts: 2,526 Level 5
    Oh @mercerik.
    Thank you. You are the my lost voice here.
    I wanted everyone to understand that King will find a solution about this mess.
    I know that everyone are mad with this mess and we all agree that this was wrong from King's side but seriously, we mustn't give up yet.
    They might bring it back or as I said, they might find something different to replace this.
    Changes happens in all mobile games all the time so, let's not lose our hopes yet.

    I played this game for years. I accepted all changes. I am living with all the bugs like this sound muting which forces me constantly end the app and restart it (just learned in this thread I am not the only one)

    i accepted I never hit the jackpot on the wheel of fortune in years which is statistically impossible and surely indicates it is not randomized. 

    But this reset disablement made me sign into this forum and keep on writing but I didn’t play a single game since. 

    Change it back! Change it back before Christmas holidays. Give us a present! A nice one. Change it back.

    Hi there, @Sofia1992

    As I have said, we are not here to argue or fight, we are here for a cause for the benefits of all the players and members of this Community. You can't blame them for speaking their minds. This is a Major Change that affects everyone so please let them speak! You should understand why they are mad, don't you?

    "Escape the stresses of today"
    "Relax and play candy"
    "Time to relax"
    "Swipe the stress away"

    These are all messages when you open Candy Crush Saga. They might as well put on there, "Get ready to get your butt kicked by a computer game. If you like losing, this game is for you."
    "If you're looking for something to relax with, don't play this game." 

    No offense, but this is how I feel now, with this change. I already was frustrated with "The Studio"...or whatever you call them...made the games harder by taking away moves and other things...but this is ridiculous. Now, I lose boosters and lives rolling the dice to see if I can get a good board. The game is about total LUCK now, and no skill. And most everyone has bad luck now with this change. Make the game FUN again, Studio!

    We have this idea games are supposed to be fun diversions...or provide mental stimulation. And certainly CC was that for many of us for many years. But it seems the developers are intent to make games what they've been historically: practice battles for waging war. For they have certainly pitted the players against the CMs and Superstars. As a player, I don't want to be complaining; I want to be playing the game. If I were a King representative, I probably would have chosen the occupation in part to help provide a fun experience for people. But it seems the company has lost its ability to think about the best interests of its stakeholders.

    If I were a CM or a Superstar, I would be questioning why King seems to be throwing its representatives under the bus, and what this means for the future. Because this very situation occurred before, back in May. But they handled it effectively. Within 5 pages of comments, the players reported the problem, the Superstars clarified the issue and reported it to the CM, the CM contacted the Studio, and the Studio reversed the changes. Find the proof of this assertion below...

    Your observation on players not playing has been the most pointless part of being matched with a team. They don't PLAY and you are the one that gets nothing out of the effort. There is a way to match people with those that have played at least once in the past week as well as shuffling the team on a weekly basis. These are not my friends, I can't send them lives or get them to play so why are they part of a team in the first place? I'm stuck with a team of four that rarely play. This is one of the only ways I am rewarded with a hammer. 
    King doesn't care about making their players happy which is counterproductive. It's a proven fact that happy customers SPEND MORE MONEY and pissed off customers take their business elsewhere. 

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

    Hi @mercerik.
    Of course I understand completely the situation and respect everyone's opinion but in the first pages in this discussion , everyone started to blame @Pounawea because he announced that sad change.
    I respect that everyone are mad now and everyone can tell their opinion here about it but seriously, why to throw the blame on @Pounawea?
    It's not his fault. He just announced that as community manager that he is.
    About the changes though, only studio has the upper hand to do this so everyone must understand this at least!
