Hi @Pounawea, I completed the three episodes. The first 30 levels were all very good levels, but as they say in the movies "All good things comes to an end. That end for me was level 8486. The first episode started well ,with only 8454, giving be a bit of a battle. Tricky levels for me were 8457 and 8458, the rest was all good. Apart from the levels mentioned, the rest was worthy of 5 stars. Only used 3 boosters in the first episode, two of which was to create CB Combos. I'd rate this one 4.5 Stars. I won the episode race, but the Gold Bars did not accrue to my total, see screenshot below.
The second episode did not start off very well, with 8466 and 8467, presenting me with a challenge. Had to use a UFO in both of them. Maybe I was lulled into a false sense of security by the preceding episode. The rest of the levels were all well balanced with only 8477, being tricky. Again I will give the rest a 5-star rating. Also use just 3 Boosters in this episode. Also no Episode race for this one.
The third episode was a disaster. It started off well with the first 4 levels being a breeze. Then disaster struck for me in Level 8486, a Rainbow Rapid Level with order locks. I had 48 moves to get 20 Fruits, but there is too much going on at one time.
Getting past the rainbow twist to get to the licorices takes up about 4 - 5 moves. Next you have to get 13 Licorice to unlock the Frosting, 30 Candy bombs (Unlocking the Magic Mixer), 30 Multilayered Frosting (Opening the portal for the fruit) and the Rainbow Rapid Path. You have to destroy the MM to get to the Waffle and destroy it for the fruit to drop. With all of this you also have to remove the rainbow twirls.
By the time everything is out of the way, there are too few moves let for the fruit to all drop. I used countless GB's (about 20 moves or more purchased, I lost count) to buy moves and used the FS to move the fruit quicker. I sacrificed quite a bit of GB's so as not to loose my 250 Win streak. Maybe it was just my bad luck. There were a few very tricky levels further on (8489, 8492, 8495) for me. About nine 5 Star levels in this episode for me. Lots of boosters wasted in level 8486.
Most levels were all enjoyable, despite the hiccups I had with those mentioned, excluding 8486.
@Pounawea Like @Albert_Heinrich I won the Episode Race (1st. Episode) but also did no receive my gold bars. I did not even get to the screenshot displayed by Albert. Will we be receiving our "reward" bars ??
I have completed Episodes 1 & 2 and am presently at Level 8484 and have stopped. Reason being it has been reported on another thread and by one of my F5 team that there is a problem with Level 8486. I won't continue and risk losing my Candy Necklace and Master Trophy status because of a designer fault !! Beware @Albert_Heinrich
@Peter_Tornaros, you are lucky to have been warned about the problem with 8486. I am playing blind, since I am the only one in my team who is at this level. I also never complete all three levels in one go, but I will be out this weekend so decided to do just that. Not a very good decision, I should have left it till Monday, since I had nothing to loose.
I only realized about 3/4 through the level that something was wrong, but by then it was too late. First I tried the Party Booster, more in hope than in belief. When the moves were up, I bought extra moves, which I very rarely do. I was not prepared to loose my 250 Win Streak.
After the 5 extra moves, I purchased another 5 moves, which now obviously costed more, Then another and another.
By then I was at a point of no return, since I already spent all that Gold Bars, and not to mention the Party Booster and Free Switches to move the fruit along quicker. I am not proud to say, but I lost 200 Gold Bars purchasing Extra Lives, just to complete the level.
By then I was so frustrated, that playing the rest of the levels was no fun. at least I did not loose my Win Streak.
I can only hope they will give it back, if indeed there is a flaw in the level. I replayed it quite a few times to check if I made a mistake regarding the order lock sequence.
My opinion is that there are too many fruits on order. The conveyor takes about 10 moves to the portal and when all the obstacles have been removed, you have about 15 moves left for 20 fruits. The fruits are also separated by timed boosters
With hind sight I should have quitted when I realized it was a lost course, But you know what they say, hind sight is 20/20 vision.
@Pounawea, I was really at my wits end playing that level, it put a damper on my overall enjoyment of the three episodes. Fortunately it was the last episode and not the first one, so I had some fun in the beginning.
If the Automatic Spawner gets destroyed too early the game is doomed. This was after 20 Moves. 5 Frostings left on order lock.
Can anyone tell me that when can i get 20 gold bars in race
@Pounawea, another replay.
With 24 moves left and 7 Frostings left in order lock, the Spawner was about to explode. 5 careful moves later it spawned and with 15 moves left the Automatic Spawner was destroyed, opening the Rainbow Rapid path.
With 13 moves left the gates were all open for the fruit to drop. New fruit only gets dispensed when a fruit drops. With 10 moves left three fruits had dropped, whilst the new fruit were on the top of the conveyor. With 1 move left 6 fruit had dropped.
So unless the order locks are all gone within the first 10 moves, you will not be able to complete the level. All the while you also have to take care of the timed Candy Bombs, until you have 20 moves left and at that point all candy bombs must be at 20.
1 - 24 moves left
2 - 15 moves left
3 - 13 moves left, first fruit drop
4 - 10 moves left, 3 fruits dropped
5 - 1 move left, 6 fruits dropped
@Albert_Heinrich I have now watched 4 videos. All have used heaps of boosters including party hats and UFOs, but none have beaten it. In fact they all have 10 or more cherries left when they run out of moves.
@Pounawea @FlaringCrystal120 Will we be notified when this level is fixed ??
@Peter_Tornaros, there are lots of postings in the forum. I just hope they see it clear to reimburse those who used Gold Bars and Boosters once it is cleared up. I would love to get my 200 GB's back. LoL
I though I was crazy spending the GB's on level 8486.
This guy here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki18VgCE3Kg, used 63 Free Switches and 6 UFO's to complete.
@Albert_Heinrich That is ridiculous !!!! I hope whoever designed this level is subject to intense counselling and retraining !!!
I cannot understand how these flawed levels are not checked before they are released ???
Really appreciate all your feedback and comments, Candy Crushers. Apologize for any inconvenience, the level 8486 has been now tweaked.
Thank you very much and keep your feedback coming!
Have a delicious day and happy crushing. 🍬 🍬
@Pounawea, any chance that players will get back what they lost due to the glitch
Level 8486 definitely beatable now. I replayed the level with no Boosters and got all the fruits on the track, but just ran out of moves.
Wasted a bit of moves trying to clear the Layered Icing, which was the difference between completing it and running out of moves.
No point in me trying to beat the level without boosters.
@Pounawea I have now finished this week's 3 episodes. 42 levels offered a mixture of very hard, hard, tactical and fun games, with good variation in the boards. Levels 8466 and 8494 were very poor to the point of being amateurish and silly. And of course Level 8486 !! How this level could ever be released is beyond belief. Sure, sometimes glitches will occur and need tweaking, but this was a total debacle. I sincerely hope measures have been put in place to prevent a similar occurrence in the future.
Having said all that 42 out of 45 is an excellent pass mark. Best level 8451 with Freddo as a target!!
My other complaint is I did not receive my 10 gold bars for the Episode 1 Fast Race ?? For the first time for quite a while I also had the Fast Race in Episode 3 and I did receive my gold bars.
Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?
