    Is this tagging when I quote like this?

    I am stuck as I am waiting for new levels, but I won't buy boosters when the new levels arrive. I can still manage without buying them even after they removed the reset feature. Maybe they will end up removing free boosters altogether? That would be the day :-) In the meantime I tried Soda, find it a little boring, am not really getting into it. Actually it's good because I am more productive now as am not playing that much anymore. For a six billions dollars company, I find Activation not very smart. They fix things that don't need to be fixed and don't fix things that would badly need fixing. Go figure.I am rather amused in fact.
    @Eddie_Sparrow;        

    Eliminating the Free Board Reset will bring in billions of revenues to King Digital Entertainment. The Paid Board Reset will bankrupt a player who is totally addicted to the game. As we all know, it takes several resets to get an acceptable Board Configuration which means the player has to lose lives and boosters that are carried along in the process.

    The Free Board Reset feature was put in place for years to make sure that many players get totally hooked. When time is right like last December 5, it was time to reel them in for the kill.

    Hello! My name is Helen and I have been a CCS “addict” since 2012. I was a Tetris “addict” for the 20 years before that...Never played any other games and have never commented on any forum, ever. 
    UNTIL NOW.
     Since I don’t know any people in real life who play, I turned to CCS All Help Group & CCS Wednesday Club on FB for tips & support. I wondered how Lynn Kirby became “Miss Cookie” who helped so many of us get through many tricky levels....  
    Over the years I took most of the changes in stride. Was happy when the timed levels were discontinued. (Aging reflexes!)  Enjoyed the many ways to acquire much needed boosters. As I got older the lettering seemed to get smaller and harder to read, but I thought it was just me. Was glad to have option of viewing advertising in exchange for boosters because it seemed fair for those who do not pay to play. And I still can’t understand how after developing over 6 thousand levels there is no navigation tool to maneuver the board! Actually, as each “Thousands Level” loomed, I was bracing for the end of the game altogether. Perhaps that would have been better...
    And now I FINALLY arrive to the reason that I signed up to comment here. The first very bad sign was the change to mostly “timed” boosters. Many have described the frustrations that arise with these “rewards”. What struck a nerve was that it was obviously a very crude way to try to squeeze money out of players. We all understand that this is a business but do not appreciate being disrespected, insulted and underestimated. 
    Of course, the final straw is the “INABILITY TO RESET WITHOUT LOSS OF PLAY LIFE &/or BOOSTERS” You can almost hear the stampede of people uninstalling the game and snapping their wallets shut around the globe!!! To then call it a “FIX” added insult to injury. 
    It was simply pathetic. Complete misreading of your clientele.
    Here are a few humble suggestions for the King/Activision Studio/Management:

    1} Hire some good Social Psychologists (not just business consultants). 
    Simple psychology is at work here. They can call me to be part of a focus group...
    2) Admit this particular mistake, apologize and reverse it completely. (& while you’re at it phase out the timed boosters...) There are many ways to increase revenue without hitting people over the head with a cudgel. This is your flagship game. Don’t let it disintegrate.
    3) Make a “Suggestion Box” and “Wish List” and LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS...we are a loyal bunch. We are rooting for you so that we can continue to enjoy this captivating game.

    HELEN

    Great idea for the reviews, however they are totally ignoring them and not posting them. I wrote a negative review and it’s gone to Never Never land. Somehow they are controlling the APP reviews.

    Very very well said, I'm with you! It's very annoying not so much fun with all these changes but no one seem to be listening or maybe they just don't care?

    Hi there, @LuckyMe1189

    I don't think opening a New Thread can help this cause. It is just going to take the focus away from where the action started, where outpouring of emotions are evident. It is just a way to divert members attention somewhere else to make this irrelevant so they can close and bury this to the ground. If I were you, I'd keep this alive. 
    I have to respectfully disagree with you on that mercerik. 
    The question is point blank and valid. It does not diminish the strength of this thread which has turned into nothing more than a place to vent frustration and be ignored.
    Not a single comment from the CM in weeks has rendered this thread nearly invisible. He is posting everywhere BUT here. 
    It's time him call him out directly and that thread does that. It deserves our attention just much as this one.

    Hi @LuckyMe1189

    I don't think they can control the Windows 10 Candy Crush Saga App Reviews. Mine is still there. I edited my review last December 31, 2019. I gave it a 1-Star ⭐ Rating. It is too bad I can't give it lesser than that. You can look mine up .

    @JethrinaBodina;       

    Somebody other than me has to do it. Pounawea has totally ignored me, my messages and tags after telling me in a PM in not so many words that he understands if I decide to leave the Community. It didn't matter if some of the tags were to help Community Members with issues. I am already beginning to wonder his existence. You'll never know who really was responding originally on this thread and after that.

    If you want to do it go ahead. As I said from the very beginning I am here to support this group. I still am for as long as I could possibly support the group and if the interests are still there.

    I just saw another forum about "LOSING LIVES ON BACK BUTTON"   They have a response from Pounawea.  The bar says it's an active forum
    So what was the response? 
    A link to this discussion and the exact same canned response. I'm beginning to think @Pounawea is a bot. It's not like they've ever had a substantitive reply. 
    That sounds like the first discussion where he dropped the bomb. He then created this thread so they'd know which one to IGNORE

    I have been traveling, so not keeping up with this board. This morning for the first time I saw this when I went to end a game. It appears that this is permanent. I had a very very thin hope which is now dashed. At the same time there are TV ads for CC. So they want money. And they are not going to change the inability to end a game w/o losing a life. I play every now and again. No money though from me. I bought boosters from time to time - about the amount, all told, of a medium pizza. NO MORE. I suggest no one send any more money to King and love the idea of rating it one star, but I play on FB, so no place to rate. Thanks to all who are keeping this going.
