    This is one of the worst ideas. Hopefully you will change it back soon. Not happy with these timed boosters. Many win them and do not have the time to use them. And may not need them at all for the upcoming levels. Better to have the boosters with a choice when to use them.

    Yep, here's another game spoiler.  I enjoy playing my favorite sugar drop levels each day, building them up before the new levels come out each week.  Pointless now.  
    There have been plenty of irritating introductions in recent months, which I tolerate, but this really has spoiled my enjoyment of candy crush.

    I too have the timed boosters - terrible update! Likewise it really has spoilt my enjoyment of this game. This is the first time I have ever had a moan about this game!

     Timed sugar drops rewards take a lot of fun out of the game. Please don’t keep this feature! ❤️

    I have been playing Candy Crush since the beginning. There have many tweaks and changes over the years, some good, some bad. These timed boosters for the sugar drops are a bad change. In the past when we were waiting for new levels to come out or just taking a break from a level we were stuck on we would play older levels to collect sugar drops. It kept us playing the game, which is important for your numbers for you advertisers, and provided us boosters for when we needed them. With the timed boosters there's no point in doing that, we aren't going to use them right then. And if you're collecting sugar drops as you go playing new levels they aren't necessarily helpful. I got 30 minutes of mystery candies and 30 minutes of a coconut wheel while I was stuck on a jelly level until long after those boosters had expired.

    I'm in the lounge area of King waiting for new levels to be added.  I usually go through the new levels added each Wed within 2 days. I usually play the bonus games in earlier levels but all I keep getting is timed boosters. That is pointless and a waste of my time. I'm leaving the lounge for now. Come on King! Whoever made up this idea of timed boosters is resulting in your losing longtime players. I've been playing for over 6 years and find myself playing less and less since you introduced the timed boosters.

    Couldn't agree more! That's exactly the point: "Whoever made up this idea of timed boosters is resulting in your losing longtime players" like myself too.

    Now that King appears to have restored sugar drops to the players who had temporarily lost them, it appears that King has decoded to try out a new twist to collecting sugar drops and that is by having them timed.  I am unfortunately in that group and it appears that some of the people who had lost their sugar drops are also in this group.  I decided to start this discussion so that people could talk about this new version and provide feedback to King and the community moderator @Jelly Jenny.
    I personally do not like this new change.  I don't find it useful at all.  By the time I collect all the sugar drops, half the boosters will have expired.  I would collect drops daily to help me complete the new levels that are released every Wednesday, but collecting daily now with the timed drops just to complete old levels makes no sense and appears to be a waste of my time.  I just hope they bring back the original  version very soon!  I have included a screen shot for those people who still have the original sugar drops.
    Couldn't agree more! Absolutely right. Timed boosters aren't helpful at all. No point in playing every day now.

    The timed rewards make playing daily worthless.  Please switch back to the regular rewards.  My time with candy crush may be coming to an end.  Lots of years I have played too!

    This nonsense started with me a couple of days ago. I think it's a disgrace! Maybe I would like to save the boosters from sugar drops. I'm on level 4416 right now. They have taken away pinata, Didi, build-a-bot, and anything else that was helpful to loyal players. Greed on King's part, simply greed! A couple of years ago I actually spent $1.99 to keep going, but I will NEVER pay King a penny again!

    I created an account just to complain about the time busters. It is really frustrating that King is taking out some of the features of the game that keep us playing it for hours. Please reverse to the boosters as they were before, it happened with the build a boat feature. But don’t take too long or you will loose many dedicated players

    Last fall I lost all my boosters when King started to really change the game.  I am now in the group with timed boosters and it is pointless. Most of the time I don't even get close to getting through a level (finally passed 4886 today), my measly 5 hammers/switches would be pointless to use.   I have purchased boosters in the past (most recent was a month ago), but I am done.  I know the goal is to make money, but when the carrots are thrown out there to keep playing have been reduced to useless--yet somehow I see users with well over 800 boosters in their screenshots who pass some of the ridiculous levels in one shot I wonder why I am even bothering to play a game that is simply meant as an escape for me.  It's not fun anymore.

    I agree, timed boosters are not helpful, time runs out before you can use them. I lost my sugar drop reward for a couple of days and now I'm back to regular sugar drops. Whoever brought timed sugar drops into the game, must not play the game, because timed rewards of any kind, don't last as long as your playing time, which for me is over very quickly. Please return the regular sugar drops back to all of your players. They were  "much sweeter!"

    In lieu of playing Candy Crush last night and this morning,  I sorted through a large bookcase and ended up filling 3 1/2 bags with books which were donated today! Seriously, thank you King. You've done me a favor. :)
