In the past when I played Candy Crush on the facebook platform and my lives were getting low, I'd send out a request to friends on Facebook. I would select "choose all" and several little windows would pop up with my actual Facebook friends so I'd know who the requests were going to. I'd get hundreds of lives - like at least 3 or 4 hundred in 20-30 minutes. I've noticed that that is not happening anymore. I have been playing more, but I've only gotten about 5 lives from several requests from my entire list of friends (2,000+ friends). I see requests for lives coming in, but very few are gifted lives. What is going on? Is Facebook just not sending out the requests anymore? I play another game on the Facebook apps, Gardens of Time, and I get so many of those little windows to show who is getting items, that it's ridiculous. I might get 50 popups in Gardens of Time, but I no longer get them on Candy Crush. Unless I stop playing for several days, I will only get maybe 20 lives at the most per 24 hour period, even though I ask for lives multiple times throughout the day. I don't like to ask so many times as I've seen one person ask 40-50 times a day and I thought that was excessive. Now, I think she has probably had the same experience as me. It seems like lives are being throttled either by Facebook or King. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
