Why'd you take away the ability to back out of an undesirable board without losing a life?

I play on iPhone.  Has this change happened on all platforms? 

Being able to back out of an undesirable board is one of the few strategies that I had left (since you've ruined sugar drops by making them times). 

PLEASE RETURN IT TO THE PREVIOUS WAY! 

King...I just don't understand why you keep taking things away.  More & more...you keep taking away our ability to succeed.  It feels like that is your main objective these days.  I honestly feel like you're punishing us, your loyal level 5000+ players.

    I play on Android. No changes so far.
  • Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?

    Yeah, I can still reboot any level as many times as I wish to get the desired combo...were that feature to be removed for me I’d simply stop playing as on almost all of the new levels a CB-CB combo is practically required in order to win.

    Is anyone else experiencing this?  I cannot believe that there isn't more outrage.

    I think it's been like it on Facebook for quite a while

    It has been that way on my iphone for months. King keeps making the game worse.

    I keep reading in posts that King keeps trying to keep the game fresh with changes.  HOW is this refresh the game?  It is punishment?

    As usual, SILENCE from King on this change.

    No response from King.  I don't know why I try.  I am very frustrated with the all these changes that punish the loyal players.

    PERHAPS I  SHOULD OFFER TO BUY 15-MINUTES OF KING'S TIME IN ORDER TO GET A RESPONSE!

    Jeez.

    Hi guys, welcome to our community.  I would like to take a moment to offer you a message for all newbies to learn more about our community which you can find here.  We always run contests so be sure to do them for a chance to win gold bars.

    This was a decision made by the studio and they don't make changes without giving it a lot of thought. 

    @leahjane10, you just bought 15 minutes of my time!  I am a King Superstar which means that I volunteer my time here to help the players.  Unfortunately, I don't work for them nor am I a programmer working for them.  I can tell you why this message wasn't responded to earlier and that is because if the Superstars check for unanswered and that is all cleared and then they see a message like this that has a number of responses they might assume that it was resolved.  I think different and I still open them up thinking that players were just responding to each other and I was right in this instance.  That's not helping you with what you want changed but I wanted you to be aware of why you might not get an answer immediately.

    Oh I think my 15 minutes might be up.  I am just kidding but sometimes doing this volunteer work makes me want to make light or joke around because some of the responses that I see here in the community are downright nasty and demanding!  Are you enjoying the game overall?  What about the rest of you?

    I have a suggestion for all of you.  We have an Ideas section here.  Please head on over there and there might be just this idea already posted.  The more votes it gets the better the chance of the studio making a change.

    I have an android and I'm still able to back out of levels without losing a life or my boosters.

    It is extremely frustrating to beat a level and then the game glitches opening the same level again. I have lost countless lives having to exit a level I have already beat to get to the next one.

    @calvin_neff Are you sure that you can't open the next level? I had that happen to me already and I played many times that level in the idea that it will bring me back to the next level, until I realized that in fact the level was recorded as beaten but I could not go to the next level, simply because there was no next level as I reached the top. Maybe you are in the same case?

    They did this change ages ago now, well like around 8 weeks ago.  They did it cause they are dumb.  They have zero interest in how any of us feel about it and wont change it back. Mind my wallet is thankful as while I may play the game time to time just to build up random boosters, I no longer pay any money to king and haven't done now in 8 weeks and have zero reason to ever pay again as I can't pay and use my boosters in a way that is effective (so why would I pay for them at all now).  Im pretty sure from the last board about it all most ppl there have also stopped buying anything in the king games etc so really, all they achieved in not allowing us to reset the boards is a loss in revenue.

    If you actually believe that they gave this a lot of thought then you are seriously deluded.  The ONLY thing this will have done for king is result in a loss in revenue as people won't be tempted to buy boosters anymore when they are no longer effective to use when they just start in random (often locked up) locations.  

    Any company that gives "a lot of thought" to a change would do one that would ENTICE players to part with cash, not dissuade them from that.
