    @Elsa hmm I see a commonality. melhence indicated being an advanced player in the 4000s levels, and you seem like you're at that point too. I wonder if it's some kind of "punishment" for you guys: less help on the more difficult higher levels. I'm in the upper 1000s (though I still consider myself a low-level player lol) and other low-level players seem to have no problems with the bot either.
    I hope that's not the case since the "help" should be distributed the same to all. Fortunately, you at least got Space Dash back. 😌

    Hi @Deryck, I don't know if they would even consider doing something like that.  From what I've been told these events are randomly sent to players so they might not know who gets what.  I haven't had Space Dash in a very long time.  Maybe they are now rotating again.

    @Elsa  Yes, the message that events are randomly sent to players often gets tossed around.
    But then there're things like the message at the end of a level when players are about to lose and get the spin wheel, informing them how many times other players use the spin wheel on levels.
    I do think King has stats on just about everything, so I don't believe much in coincidences/randomness when it comes to the game. ;)

    Anyway, I remember you were curious if I started getting timed boosters from doing the sugar drop quest. I finally experimented this morning on my Win10 app and 'lo, received one timed 30-min donut wheel. That was it (though I didn't fill the entire bar via the app). 😱 So yep, King got me too. I'm just glad I still get the regular storeable boosters at king.com (which I proceeded to do - successfully - after getting that timed donut wheel)!

    I've stated this on another post and I'll state it here just to be sure it's seen. A timed booster is negative reinforcement; a regular booster is positive reinforcement. Why would someone continue with a game that 'rewards' the players with negative reinforcements?

    Yes, I'm pretty much done with Candy Crush now.  For the past several months now, after over two years away from the game, and starting over at level 1, I was ENJOYING playing EVERY morning with my coffee.  But getting timed boosters as I am finishing my coffee and getting ready to start my day, or AFTER I have used my lives up has turned me OFF of the game again.  Some of these other things added to the game, while I was away from it, are not at all reliable, or even fun.  The timed boosters were the one thing that was consistent between the early candy crush and the game today.  King constantly changing things up is ALSO not very appealing.  Events come and go, sometimes in the middle of the event.  This buddy system game is a waste as I NEVER complete it for a timed reward while I have time to play. The climb the tree thingy appears and disappears at random.  Even the build a bot has been changed.  I am one of these guys that like some consistency - and Candy Crush doesn't have it anymore.  I cant even compete against my friends.  As soon as I win I get shoved into some race where I dont know anyone. The FUN FACTOR is gone...

    So, take the useless timed booster drops and keep them.  I am done too.

    I feel for you, Fr_Cayman, and all of the loyal candy crush saga players. I'm done asking candy crush to return our good old game. Learning to struggle with less moves, less rewards. Just playing less and not enjoying the game. Not much else we can do. I've read all of the player comments, seems like our voices are not being heard.

    Obviously no senior management are checking this forum as if they did they could not have failed to become aware of the massive reaction to these timed rewards and the total dissatisfaction shown by their customers. It only takes a few minuets to change the code in the program so why are we being ignored and our request to remove the timed rewards has not been addressed?

    Hi. Looking at the history of Kings timed Sugar Drops game changes. I can’t help but feel they used the classic give and take bluff. First they TAKE Sugar Drops from CCS for 6 weeks. Then, GIVE it back with timed boosters. The problem with this kind of bluff is you loose credibility.  Now they are tweaking the game further. I am getting lollipops along with the timed boosters. They also have a new feature on older levels:

    So here we are still patiently waiting to have the timed sugar drops removed and to revert back to being able to save rewards. If only everyone stopped making purchases (and I doubt that will ever happen) the company seeing a drop in revenue would  soon extract their digits.

    I agree that the timed boosters are useless. Over the years I have spent a lot of $$ with King on their various games. Candy Crush Saga was my favourite. Since I retired I look forward to collecting my sugar drop boosters every morning and evening. Not any more. I will play other games and spend my money elsewhere until they change it back.

    My thoughts exactly, to me this was the main reason for playing Candy Crush Saga being able to build up a good collection of boosters that I could save for the more difficult levels.

    I was at the last level available 2 weeks ago,  I wrote to CC.  Told them, they ruined the game.  I was just a stones throw away from #5000.  I was well over my friends playing. 

    Just a pure shame.  My guess it has to do with lawsuits,  something doing with charging for boosters,   

    But King lost me as a valued long time player.

    Amazing how much more productive time I have.  My house is cleaner, closets cleared out, and even started reading a book again.

    All positive things!!  CIAO

    Add me to the list of those who despise timed boosters. Either they  can’t be used  on that level or I am out of lives so they are wasted!

    Welcome @ccLee - thank you also @Brize and the other people who have posted their opinions about the timed boosters. One of the great things this community provides is a place for players to express their opinions about the various games. It is important that we provide feedback to the game developers about the new features they are trying out and whether we like them or not.  So far the opinion seems to be that the players do NOT like the timed boosters (I am definitely one of them) so hopefully they will change it and go back to providing non-times boosters.  I too no longer play every day (used to do it twice daily) for sugar drops.  Also please ensure you have cast your vote here to get rid of the timed sugar drop boosters: https://community.king.com/en/candy-crush-saga/discussion/258955/get-rid-of-timed-sugar-drops#latest
    I am especially concerned for the extremely limited ability to get hand switches now.
