Diagonal Moves

SpacePhoenixSpacePhoenix Posts: 57 Level 3
Is the limited time "diagonal moves" feature a trial of a feature that might become permanent?

    Hello @SpacePhoenix, Good Morning :)

    May I know which game you are talking about?  Candy Crush OR Candy Friends?  Also what level?  I have not experienced this in Candy Crush yet.... unless you are in very latest levels!!  

    Would it be possible for you to post a screenshot? 

    Thank you!

    Hello @SpacePhoenix, hope you are having a good day :)

    As I have mentioned above, I went back to the level and checked in my game!  Like I suspected it was a test feature and you are one of those lucky selected players who has received this feature =)=)  

    Hopefully the feature will continue & lasts forever and also all the players will receive it :+1: 

    Hope this clarified your Question!  Have a great day/evening :)

    I guess I'm part of the diagonal moves test group and here's my feedback:  please turn this **** off and let me play the game in peace, this is very annoying and particularly in that the moves per game have been cut back.  Scale of 10, my vote is negative one.

    I'm sorry to hear that your experience of diagonal moves has been so negative. Is there anything specific that you do not like about diagonal moves, or is it just that the total amount of available moves has been slightly adjusted?

    I’m also part of this test group and while the diagonal moves are ok.. the reduction in moves make it impossible to beat level 2558. How do I turn this off?

    King just need to find the right balance reducing the number of moves with diagonal moves being available but not so much that it makes a level impossible

    My objections to the diagonal moves are twofold:  I'm on level 4787 so I'm an experienced player as I suspect the rest of the test group are.  The game I've played all this time did not have diagonal moves, this suddenly is not that game.  Diagonals make it significantly easier to make striped, wrapped etc. and take a fair amount of the challenge away.  They took away moves to compensate but it's still a different game and the missing moves make a sugar drop run take forever.  Plus they're changing the rules in the middle of the game, imagine if that could be done in chess or football for example.  As for "right balance", there is no right balance. 
         Secondly:  they took the space dash away from previously won levels for a blatantly obvious reason, more money spent on boosters.  Space dash made a sugar drop run faster and easier so without it players will have less boosters on hand and therefore may spend money on boosters, I don't though.  The reasoning behind diagonals I suspect is the same, harder to do sugar drop runs and harder to complete levels due to reduced moves therefore potentially more money spent on boosters.
    They're not trying to improve the game, they're trying to boost the bottom line.  We're just lab rats.
         There are other games and other diversions and I'll move on to one if they keep this up.  I'm not playing diagonal CC for long.

    Although the Win10/app version of CCS has its benefits, I prefer playing on king.com when it comes to the sugar drop quest. I was furious a few weeks ago when its booster system broke and won boosters were no longer being added to my account. But I tried back a day or so ago, and it's been fixed (I did not get all the missing won boosters however >.<).

    I recommend collecting sugar drops via king.com. The boosters collected seem to be multiplied by 2. For example, I only need to play 3 levels to fill my booster bar: 666, 906, and 1168. Takes about 30 minutes total, sometimes shorter. Each level usually nets me around 30 sugar drops, if not more. 30 * 2 = 60, 60 * 3 = 180, the magic number. If the Win10/app version incorporated the same system, I wouldn't need to bother playing on king.com ever again actually.

    btw the Win10/app version reduced the number of moves for L1168, but it's still 40 moves on king.com, and as a result still easy to win. The same holds true for other levels that have reduced moves in the Win 10/app version.

    I absolutely LOVE the new feature that allows you to move candies diagonally. I have tons of friends who feel the same way. Please please please make it a permanent feature!! Those who do not like it, can choose to move candy the way that they feel comfortable, however, this is an incredible feature that makes this game feel so much better! The game has felt stale for a while, and kind of out dated, but the diagonal feature gave it this game the “face lift” it needed! Please make it permanent!

    I am on level 4276 and I guess I was a part of the trial. They turned it on, turned it off, .....and it’s frustrating. It takes me a day to play one level with the few moves I have now. 
    Its getting ridiculous and I am tired of all their new schemes to make money. 

    They will bring this feature back and prob make us pay for it. I will not, ever.

    I LOVED the diagonal feature and for those complaining there's an option were you get to choose how you want to play the game on any stage, you can choose the classic, the diagonal and there's a 3rd type I played but mostly I loved the diagonal Game play. "KING" I just changed my phone and tried to download the app again but after I did the diagonal feature is gone is there a way I can get that back??
