    Hello Anne, once you receive the Deluxe Choc Box in your game then you essentially still have the original as well.

    This is because after you have completed the Deluxe Box (or let the timer run down) you get to complete the original Box again. Once you complete this original Box the Deluxe Box returns, and so it goes on.

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

    Hi Brittaleexox it looks like you have reached your daily limit of Choc Box tasks as you can only complete one Choc Box a day. It also looks like you only have forty minutes left to complete all of your Choc Box tasks.

    It unfortunately looks like the 2 day time limit ends at the same time that your daily limit refreshes.

    But my concern is what is the use of this new chocolate box , for players like me who had reached to the end of the game , how I am supposed to win new rounds or earn crown by passing any round at first go ? Also the other way to earn this box by using boosters and that too party popper and ufo which is beyond justification .. the gold box which gives 20 gold bars and 1 UFO was useful and this one is just waste of energy and time .. I am appalled by the fact that why the developers come up with these bizarre ideas to irritate the players . Boosters and events are made to help us not to increase our problems . Any which ways they could not design anything better than sugar drop challenge till date . I think there is no one to listen or work as per player suggestion , they are only there to cut off all means which can help us to play smoothly

    Hi @Appsv from what I can gather there are more than a few players on here that use the Deluxe Choc Box and are at the end of the Saga map, so it is possible for you to complete it. Some people at the end of the map actually like the new Deluxe Box because of the 20 gold.

    Also I would say your complaints aren’t limited to people that are at the end of the map as those players that haven’t reached the end of the map have to deal with the reduced moves so are more likely to struggle to earn crowns. To be perfectly honest any player that has passed level 1500 will struggle to complete some levels on their first attempt.

    the other way to earn this box by using boosters and that too party popper and ufo which is beyond justification

    From reading other people’s posts the task that requires you to use a Party Popper, or a UFO also includes completing levels. This means that you have to choose when to complete your Box tasks carefully. That is, don’t leave the task that includes the Party Popper and complete new levels task until you have run out of levels.

    I do get your point though and would agree that it is nonsensical in the first place for a task to include the use of a UFO or Party Popper when the reward is just 20 gold.

    I am appalled by the fact that why the developers come up with these bizarre ideas to irritate the players

    I would say that plainly their intent is not to irritate the players, but I do agree with the sentiment of what you say.

    Events that require you to complete 115 levels in a week, or collect nine gold crowns are plain bizarre as you put it. For me the frustration of these events comes from the fact that 115 levels in a week, or nine gold crowns in two days is just not realistic due to the state of the game. This is were the frustration comes from as the events seem to be designed for a game that no longer exists. That is, the events seem to be designed for when the game was more fun and had more moves.

    Boosters and events are made to help us not to increase our problems

    Well, actually I would say the events are there to increase King’s profits, and not to help us. That is jut speculation on my part though.

    Any which ways they could not design anything better than sugar drop challenge till date

    I have never seen the Sugar Drop in my game, but I have seen it mentioned quite a few times, so I know it was popular. Again I am only speculating, but I would bet money that the Drop was removed because it was too good. That is, King want to reward people that buy things for their game so if the Drop allowed people that didn’t pay for stuff to compete then for them it is a bad feature.

    I think there is no one to listen or work as per player suggestion

    Well that is another cause of frustration for me Appsv. I thought one of the purposes of this community was for our feedback on events and features to be fed back to King by our Community Managers (@Crazy Cat Lad & @Pounawea ), but either I was wrong in that thought or they just don’t bother to keep us informed.

    The feedback on the Deluxe Box hasn’t been good. There is an idea that requests an easy scrolling method be introduced into Saga that has been running for over 1000 days. The amount of requests for some/any kind of communication feature for F5 is never ending.

    The lack of any detailed response to all of this feedback, and other problems is damning.

    they are only there to cut off all means which can help us to play smoothly

    Yes and no I would say. They are there to encourage those players that don’t mind paying to buy more stuff. It doesn’t then matter that the fallout of this approach is to annoy those people that don’t buy anything.

    Did you find out what this means? No one should be forced to comb through 500 posts to figure out what these icons mean.

    Candy Crush is has turned into a game to make money. They don’t have nearly the same amount of players as they did years ago. Less people means the the chances of as many people spending money are less so they give away less stuff for free thinking it will force people to buy gold bars. Also they have made the levels so hard after level 10,000 that that the only way to win is to buy more moves. I’ve been playing for years but getting really frustrated and i am about to quit. They don’t seem to listen to anything the players that have been around for a long time have to say. I thought going on this forum would do some good as far as our input but again developers have gone for making money off of the ones that play instead of making it fun for all and gaining more players.

    With all the sentiments I have read about this new chocolate box, I would say the old one is better than this. 10 gold bars at the end of the quest is not worth or does not equal the boosters and the earned gold bars you will use just to finish the quest.

    Having colored bombs, striped candy and lolipop hammer daily is preferred by players.

    Hi @lelensp I am undecided about the Deluxe Chocolate Box to be honest. It is good having another way of winning gold in the game, but the rewards seem aimed at getting you to play more rather than rewarding you at the end of the tasks.

    That is, unlike the old Chocolate Box some of the rewards are temporary. 15minute colour bomb, 30minute unlimited lives, 30minute colour bomb and the one hour unlimited lives are only helpful if you have the time to keep playing.

    Yesterday I left the gold chocolate box with just one task to complete today. So today all I had to do was collect 490 blue candy to complete the Box.

    This meant that the hour I normally play in a day had the advantage of one hour unlimited lives and half an hour of unlimited colour bombs. On top of that I gained ten gold bars. Pretty sweet then.

    The Deluxe Box seems to take a lot of thought to get the best out of, and some of the tasks are difficult compared to the original Box. The complete six new level task is especially difficult considering the well known issue of move removal from levels.

    One change that I think would help is the removal of the 2 day limit. After struggling to complete the majority of the tasks the two day limit feels like a punishment when the time runs out with just one task left.

  • lelensplelensp Posts: 18,878 Level 5

    We have different rewards. With my old box what I get daily is coloured bomb striped candy and hammer. No unlimited lives and colour bombs. The task is so easy no time pressure too.

    I just wait until i get my regular chocolate box. Everytime one row of the deluxe chocolate boxes is not worth it/not completable in time.

    King should really think about their tasks before they use them

    20 gold bars is not worth wasting my poppers or ufo for

    and also, I agree with Appsv said

  • Kazza-3Kazza-3 Posts: 177 Level 3

    20 gold bars? I only win 10.

    Another example of all the inequalities between player’s games?
