    They have totally ruined this game and I can’t  remember the last time I didn’t play at all.  I have zero interest in playing boring boards that are clearly going nowhere and losing my boosters on top of that.   Honestly I can’t believe how much time I wasted on this nonsense, it’s stupid.   They should have left us alone to get our boosters lined up and roll through levels, slowing down the game like this really shows how pointless and how much of a time suck it really is.  

    They surely have done some uncalled for damage. Not only is the game ruined for most people, (I say most because a lot didn't even know about the reset) but they've got people going at each other's throats all in the name of solidarity. I think we're all on the same side, yes? I think this entire discussion could hit the reset button in some cases, lol... At this point we're all just beating a dead horse. To death. Again. And Again. I know I'm guilty of it. Can't delete what you write like you can on other social media platforms!

    I wanted to thank you all once again for sharing your opinions, your feelings with us and also thank everyone's efforts for keeping this discussion calm and respectful.
    Thank YOU for keeping calm in the face of such adversity. Posts are sadly turned being turned into "you said" and "you started it". I wish we could delete them if we regret what we say after it's posted. You just can't unsay some things, though.
    I wish I could delete the game and start over, too. It's not about the levels for me, it's about beating them and winning races and earning boosters, etc. Yes, some are easier in the lower levels, but I've been stuck on "not hard" ones for awhile right after I've beaten the Nightmare in one turn! I've i uninstalled and tried to reset myself on Facebook, but it didn't work to let me have a clean slate. I didn't play for three years and it still remembered where I was. CC Friends dropped me a few hundred levels behind where I left it and I lost my favorite character, the Unicorn. That game has never been easy, there aren't enough boosters and you have to hit the blockers way too many times. It stopped being fun so I turned to CCSaga. Now the fun has been sucked out of that.
    Can you tell me why so many of us have lost the ad videos? I came back to this game because of those opportunities to get boosters. It really makes people angry when they find out we are all playing the same game but aren't playing the same game. Ya know? 
    Thanks for getting our reactions to the "Studio". I hope it's going far enough up the chain to someone that cares about their bottom line as well as their loyal following. There has to be at least ONE of them. It's sad to think that something that made so many people happy in their own way has been ruined by greed under the guise of being "never intended". The warranty period ran out years ago... Their choice to "fix" it should gave been made in the very beginning and since it wasn't, it's too late. The reset gave it a unique quality that brought players IN, now they're being driven OUT and not just from CCS, from all of King's games, in order to really hit them where it hurts, in their wallets.

    I think this is a bad move by King.  Why "fix" something that's not broken from a players' point of view?
    However, if they do intend to do something like this, it's not good enough to make an announcement on here - they need to make it pop up at the beginning of the game before it happens, so that people (like me) who don't realise they have made this change, don't get caught out and lose several lives without realising.  Particularly as we no longer get given lives by friends.

    You don't get lives from friends??? That's terrible!! What do you play on and is it Android or iOS?
     I couldn't play if I didn't have my Mom to send me lives!

    I am SUPER disappointed in this game. I was about to finish my level undefeated and on my final move to clear the board on level 1475 your game crashed so I did not get Diamond crown and I lost a life!!! How funny that should happen.

    The only foolish part of any of this thread is the juvenile reference to genitalia this person gave himself for an identity. I can't take back or delete what I said, but I have the right to be offended.

    I’m out. Was on level 4060. Spent plenty of money on crush. I pay for the boosters. Should be mine to use how I’d like. If that means resetting a level so be it. Guess I should thank the powers that be for saving me money.

    I'm new to this game and have seen a lot of the rules change after I learned to move forward.
    As far as a preview of the level, perhaps a generic,  but realistic and accurate for level, random example picture or suggestions on what you really need to have in your tool kit (bare minimum boosters,etc) available to  honestly have a good chance.
    Thanks

    I'm a longtime player who had reached level 3893 before you pulled this nasty little trick. I would mostly play for free and occasionally buy some boosters if I hadn't earned any in a while or was in a particularly tight spot. I'm not prepared to pay for boosters that end up in useless positions, so that's it, I'm out. While CC was an absolutely outstanding game when it came out and is still quite good, there are others out there now. Sorry guys, you killed the goose that lays the golden eggs. Too bad. Anyone have any suggestions for replacement games?

  • TchkjhTchkjh Posts: 4 Newbie
    Cookie Jam. It is very similar and you can reset the board and even with difficult levels you can win without spending a fortune.  Now also candy crush has reduced the piggy bank for 60 to 30 gold bars for $2.99.  I'm out.
  • lkatklkatk Posts: 6 Newbie
    Yes. it's official, the game is no longer fun. Why would I buy gold bars if they will just get wasted? Please let us know if it goes back to normal, otherwise I am moving on.

    it is one thing to have an opinion on the game. but no one wants or needs your excessive & unnecessary opinions on *other people’s opinions* thats what all the like/dislike buttons are for. do you see the difference?
     
    @adahelena

    I think you're being here is not really to support the cause. You are here as a diversion. You are so transparent! Your agenda is too obvious. You are trying to stir a fight here just like the other 2 members who eventually stopped. I am not going to waste my time on you. It is not worth it the effort. If you are one of us, why don't you comment on Restoring the Free Board Reset instead of undermining me when I am the one who is trying to help these people who are affected?

    I hate the game now. Very much not fun anymore. Have been going into the App Store looking for a replacement game. Still going into cc to get the free boosts and waiting to see if King comes to its senses.

    Candy crush = heroin. We all are the addicted users. King = the cartel. We play CC for the same reasons people use heroin: to relax, to escape the world, because it makes us feel good. In some cases they have raised the price and some of us continue to play. But what they have done this time is different. The heroin they gave us this time wasn’t more expensive; rather it lacks its potency. It’s like drinking nonalcoholic beer. There’s no joy. No relaxation. No escape. So many of us are going cold turkey. The big difference from heroin, however, is CC is much easier physically to come off of. I have more time now. I’ve found other things: shows to binge watch, books to read that improve my mind, new crafts to explore and I’m loving my CC free life. Some people will have more money now if they quit CC. I never spent any and was on highest level last week before they dropped new levels and the “fix.” Even though I didn’t spend money on boosters, I worked for them so I still think I should say where they go. I’m happy with my new life. I think even if they fix it I won’t go back.

    Dear community,

    As commented early this morning (on this side of the world 🙂), we are still working together with the Studio and we will most likely get an official communication published in the forum next week. I'll keep you posted, but for now, I would also like to say that there are no plans to undo this change in the game.  

    I know I'm repeating myself a lot, but I really appreciate everyone's efforts for keeping this discussion calm and respectful. Please keep on doing it! 

    Have a delicious day and see you around the forum.
