    @DeepshikhaSharan @Elsa My score is valid. The platform has no effect on scores. L1476 is identical throughout all platforms. In fact, mobile, Facebook, and app players are the ones who have an advantage because if they start with a full bot/stocking set, they begin with extra moves + boosters. The old platform offers no advantages.

    The person who complained overlooks that all 4-color levels like this one are completely random in terms of when cascades stop. Refer to L376. That's a low level where the scores can get ridiculously high like this too (I once saw someone with up to 7,000,000).
    Ultimately, no one should be butthurt that anyone gets a high score in any 4-color level because those are all levels of chance, not skill.
    No one said your score isn't valid. It's worth noting the differences between scores on platforms to level the playing field. Another PC player already explained that the Flash version has always given scores like those and it can't be denied that not one mobile player has achieved them. There is an 8 million point difference. Why, WTH knows??
    No one is complaining about your ability to get such scores. No one is complaining AT ALL. 

    I disagree that there is no skill or strategy involved, at least until the end when the cascades hit without the player. I have worked hard to achieve the highest score possible on this and other levels. I use no boosters because I don't have them anymore unless they're awarded for free. I haven't bothered to post my score because it's out of the running and I can't get it up there high enough. There are ways to increase the score by taking time to build valuable candies that'll fall into cascades. 
    There is no reason to get defensive. It's a game. Competition is simply more fun when everyone has the same opportunity to win.

    @JethrinaBodina It's cute you think I was directing my comment at you. (Hey, that sounds familiar ;)). It was generally meant for any player.

    Your opening sentence "No one said your score isn't valid" is a contradiction - but maybe you don't even realize what you originally wrote when you alleged that a person would have to cheat to possibly get a score in the 11 millions. (in caps lock of course!) As in, you accused me of cheating.

    Yeah, I'm the defensive one.. 😏 I don't mind if my score is included here, but the ludicrous claim like yours that platforms yield vastly different scores needs to be corrected. I've already explained how these 4-color levels work; any player who's played this game long enough already knows about it.
    I wasn't referring to cascades during the level; those don't really do anything to build a high score. It's when a player finishes the level that the final cascade sequence is completely random; this is how I got my score. It's common to hear of those final cascades lasting for long minutes. Some players are so annoyed they close their game (why? who would disdain a high score lol)

    The best part about my score here is I didn't even see it (!) as it was growing. I'd finished collecting my sugar drops so switched to my email tab and proceeded to go through them. When I later went back to the CC tab, I got the greatest surprise. :proud:

    Ok guys, this is it!  I just finished some of my Christmas animation for the community so I went into king.com, Windows 10, Facebook and Apple and did print screens of level 2825.  Instead of continuing the conversation here, I am going to post a new message and then come back here with the link so that you can post your thoughts there.  Very interesting information.

    Ok the message has been posted

    Is there a difference of a game board across the various platforms?


    Peggy I couldn't scroll all the way down to 1476 so I just did level 2825 on all platforms. Now I need all of you here to head on over there so that we can continue the decision there.

    Yes Peggy what you wrote makes perfect sense!  We could have a a study group of sorts testing this out.  They could show us their boards to see if those are different.  I am working on a Christmas animation thing right now but who wants to scroll alllllllllllllll the way down to 1476.  One do it on a PC Windows 7, another on PC Windows 10, another on Android and a final on Apple.  You guys can determine who does what but I want to compare the level to see.  This could be a good start for a test!

    I can contribute the PC Windows 10 level screenshot when I get home. 

    But for right now, it seems there's an obvious simple solution (because I can see this being an issue again) to running the contests: for people to stop choosing 4-color levels to play. The majority of levels selected so far have been.
    If people chose 5-color and 6-color levels, like the person who chose L423 (nice, actual skill involved 👍), then it'd ensure realistic scores for all participants.

    @Deryck, when you get home can you please post the comments above to the new message that I created.   The link is in my last message.  We are flooding this contest and I know that we are going to have a lot more comments so please type your message there and please do me a favor and tag the others here that were discussing it.  I've been sitting at this computer for over 12 hours and I need to get off now.  Thanks!

    Perhaps run a new contest when this one is over and ask for that information. 

    This is my question.  If I tell 2 players to play that specific level, how can we compare if the boards are always changing.  One might get one board and the other another board.  Also when the candies drop are they the same candies dropping?  Also each is going to make different moves right?  It would be fun to find out but I think it might be difficult.  Please put on your thinking hat and give me more feedback.
    I'm not implying that the boards are actually different, rather the gameplay is somehow different. Perhaps it's as simple as the Flash version doing something the mobile isn't capable of doing. I can't find the explanation that was given to me be a PC player. Simply running contests with the question of PC or mobile will shed some light, I think. It's easy enough to add to the post with your adversity l screenshot.
    There is a noticeable difference in the setup of the game between PC and mobile, so it makes sense that there are differences that are unseen, hidden by code. 
    I'm discovering, by playing this game, that I have a competitive streak that I didn't know was in there! The challenges to beat high scores is SO much fun. But I'm also an advocate for those that are disadvantaged. Like Deryck said, mobile players get sugar drops and other boosters that PC players do not. That's not fair, either. It's called Candy Crush, not Candy Crush for PC or Android or Apple. A contest for all should be a contest that's played in the same way, just to give equal opportunity to use what they have at their disposal. I don't pay to play so winning gold would be awesome for me! I'm sure a all agree on that.
    I'm truly sorry for ruffling feathers and if any of my comments were taken as directed at a player, I apologize to that as well. If I wanted to make an accusation I would do so. My words are aimed at the programmers that allow the inconsistencies to continue when there is no reason for not fixing things that are actually broken. Instead they unravel the threads that give players incentive to continue playing.
    Sorry for being the squeaky wheel, y'all

    Good morning @Elsa

     Thank you, I like to do that. Because I can't get out of 3006. This is much faster and it is easier.
