Fast Race Gold Bars.

LyndallDLyndallD Posts: 167 Level 2

Not real happy that the Gold Bars for winning Races has decreased. The race I am in at the moment gives you 10 for winning, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd. I assume no gold bars for coming 4th or 5th. That really sucks.

    Mine was the same as it has ever been yesterday @LyndallD. I really hope that your Race is just yet another glitch. Changing the Episode Race in the way that you describe makes no sense other than yet another two finger salute from King to their players.

  • Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?

  • LyndallDLyndallD Posts: 167 Level 2

    Glad yours hasn't changed. Pissed that mine has. If it is just a glitch I hope they fix it quickly.

  • LyndallDLyndallD Posts: 167 Level 2

    @Nikolaos_Prodromidis What is your solution for fixing the "glitch" in the Fast Race? At the moment mine says 10 gold bars for 1st, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd. None for 4th or 5th.

    Hi @LyndallD!

    Mine is O.K. as you can see in the screenshot!

    For more details and help you can ask a Candy Crush Saga Mod! πŸ™‚

    @Diamond Lim @Crazy Cat Lad @Sukanta_Biswas

    I hope one of you can help solve my problem. My Fast Race Feature has changed. The Race I am currently in only pays 10 Gold Bars for 1st. 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd. None for 4th or 5th. This has happened to my last 2 Races. Last Race I came 2nd and only received 2 Gold Bars. Is this a glitch in the game? Other people do not seem to have this problem.

    Hello @LyndallD - the studio is always testing different versions of the various features you play. I think you may have been temporarily moved to a different version of the fast race with smaller payouts.

    Also I have wondered if you don’t consistently come in the top position(s) that will result in your move back down to a lower payout until you consistently come in high enough.

    When I started playing the Fast Race I was at a lower payout until I had consistently won a certain amount of times and finally reached the 25 gold bar payout for coming in first.

    I hope this explanation helps. 😊

  • LyndallDLyndallD Posts: 167 Level 2

    @bearwithme I have won many Fast Races, often scoring the 25 Gold Bars, so your explanation doesn't make sense to me. The 2nd last Fast Race I was participating in had the normal 25 Gold Bars for 1st etc but halfway through the Race it all changed. The Race I am in now has the lower prizes. I am sure there is some sort of glitch going on as this is the first time I have encountered this problem.

  • LyndallDLyndallD Posts: 167 Level 2

    @bearwithme I would also like to add that when I was competing in the 2nd last Fast Race (when the prize pool dropped halfway during the Race) I still managed to come in 2nd.

  • LyndallDLyndallD Posts: 167 Level 2

    @bearwithme All the time I have Played Candy Crush Saga I have never played a Fast Race with those low payouts. Every Fast Race I have participated in has always had prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th.

    Hi @LyndallD - then it appears you must have been changed to a different test group with the lower payout. This is not an uncommon thing to happen, except for the fact that it happened half way thru your playing the one race.

    However in case it is a glitch, you should clear your cache, make sure you have the latest version of the game and turn your game off for at least 10-15 seconds. That should clear up any temporary glitches.

    If you still have the lower payout, then you have probably been shifted to a different test group. The studio does this with various events, including removing an event entirely (for example I don’t currently have the daily calendar or candy box).

    However there are a lot of exciting events going on right now so hopefully you have them and the opportunity to get boosters and gold bars.

    I've got this currently.

    Big thumbs down from me.


  • LyndallDLyndallD Posts: 167 Level 2

    @KimmyA1 That is exactly what I have got. Mine changed halfway through the Race. It really sucks. See the above explanation that @bearwithme gave. I also hate that they have altered the way your boosters amounts show up. If you have more than 100 it just says 99+. Now I have no idea exactly how many boosters I have.

    G'day to the lady down under (& everyone else), but that test group explanation is pretty hilarious (& typical); it's usually given to newbies (of the game/website), & you're clearly not one of either.

    About the # of boosters issue, see here.

    King sure are petty & stingy about things like this, nowadays.

    Believe that test group theory if you want, but be fortunate that you haven't reached the top of the map; lest (per the theory) you'd be in the test group of players that this feature (at best) functions sporadically for, or (at worst) not function at all...

  • LyndallDLyndallD Posts: 167 Level 2

    @Spieler_8675309 Your answer makes more sense than bearwithme does. King is really sucking at the moment. There is no way I am wasting boosters to win a measly 2 gold bars from a race.
