finding this level impossible to get more than 1 star I have seen other videos of the level and people starting with 50 moves but I’m starting with 25 🥴
@rowe11 The video that you saw with 50 mover was done 7 years ago. Many changes was in those years. Here a video with 25 moves https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4JY9fr6X20
I agree that it's a hard level to get many stars on, but it's possible! I actually play candy crush on my own time, just like all of you, even though I work with it, and I have managed to get Sugar Stars on that level! Good luck in your star hunt, @rowe11 !⭐️
@LindQ Did you manage to get Sugar Stars on this level without using boosters?
Yes! When I play on my own time i rarely use boosters. Maybe a hammer if I've been stuck on a level for a long time and have 1 jelly left or something like that, but I don't tend to use more. I play casually and I've reached level 1050 in less than a year! Of course all these levels were made long before I started at King myself 😉
Thanks @LindQ you have already answered a question I was going to ask in another thread. Unlike @rowe11 I gave up on the target of chasing stars fairly quickly as on some of the Super/Nightmarishly Hard levels I spent that much time just trying to complete the level I am just glad to finish them in the end. The question you inadvertently answered for me was whether or not each level is designed to be completed without the use of boosters, and the answer is yes.
With regard to people like @rowe11 can you tell me if it is possible to get three stars on every level without the use of boosters. From what I can gather this is a goal of quite a few players.
I actually don't really know when it comes to old levels. In recent levels we usually set star scores for 3 starts to be a bit higher than we can score ourselves, and we don't use any boosters when we test the levels. It should absolutely be possible!
I tried many times to get at least 3 stars on this level (not even talking about the Sugar Stars) but never succeed. Once, I even used all my bonus before moving once, so I basically completed the level with no move at all (which means high bonus at the end) and it still did not work.
I cheched the video provided in the link (thanks for that by the way) and there is something I do not undestand :
By the time mark 01:31 when the chocolate bomb is used, the score suddenly rocket-jumps to the sky with more than 1.000 points for a violet candy... On my game, it is no more than 100 points.
There is obvioulsy something I'm doing wrong but, dear Designing Team, could you please consider looking at how this level reacts beacause I definitively thinks something is not right there (or again, maybe it is just me)...
Love, peace, candies
Something is different between when that video was done and now. I’ve passed this level MANY times and haven’t SNIFFED 2 stars, let alone 3.
I don’t move on from a level until I 3-star it, and this one is IMPOSSIBLE right now. I’m ready to stop playing again after picking it back a few weeks ago.
I know that feeling, right !
I hope somebody from the Level Designer Team will give it a look someday because it is kinda disappointing not to be able to complete this one. I could move on but, hey, that's the spirit, isn't it ?
King needs to look at this level. This is crazy...
THIS LEVEL CAN’T BE 3-STARRED AS DESIGNED.
When is this bug of a level going to be fixed? It’s not even classified as a “hard” level?
level 375 was a cinch to 3 star. Why is 374 impossible??
It is not impossible at all, I have double checked 😊
@LindQ So what score did you get to achieve your three stars? Did you manage three stars without boosters?
On my personal account I got 1041760 for 374, and I'm 9th on the leader board there! (this score gives sugar stars) I rarely use boosters when I play on my personal account, and if I do it's after trying a level multiple times first, and this is a first time clear for me 😊
(This level is also not changed in recent years)
Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?
