    “This was not intended and will be now fixed” and you fixing it after how many years???? please... we are not idiots. 

    I’ve promised myself that I’ll stop playing when this happens to me, so goodbye.

    This behaviour was not intended since the very beginning and very soon, this issue is going to be fixed. 

    It was, in fact, INTENDED. King already rescinded this issue in June when players revolted when King first revoked the ability to restart the game. Your statement is a bald-faced lie.

    Went out of my way to create an account for this.

    I am absolutely APPALLED with this decision. Level 5460, player of 7 years. This is the end for me. This feature was crucial for clearing, and more importantly, enjoyment.

    Uninstalling the app.

    I also have joined today to comment on the new fix. Totally disgusted with this I will no longer be playing after 7 years of commitment 
    Same for me also joined today to say bye. I’m at lvl 5223 and that one will not be finished. This is an example when greed puts you over the edge. Thanks for these years and bye

    I’ve been playing for 7 years I think. I guess this is the end of the line for me. I’ll be heading over to PeopleFun and playing Wordscapes and Wordstacks. See ya!

    I am honestly so disappointed. Candy crush is a loyal community of players. Most of us have been playing for years. Doing this to us now is simply insulting and the manifestation of greed. If you don’t rethink this fix you will lose many players, including me. I hope it’s worth it.

    Deleting app. This is ridiculous. Bye bye king.

    Hey, players, we pretty much know who advertises on CC because we watch their long ads over and over every day to gain boosters. What the heck are we wasting time HERE for??!! Everybody go to the ADVERTISERS and START COMPLAINING to THEM!!!
    Lets go! Power to the players!

    Suddenly I lose a life if I restart the game?  Goodbye King, been nice playing. There are other games.

    I joined this forum for the same reason as others. I thought something was wrong with the settings when I couldn't back out and reset the game. Wow! This is unbelievable! I'm finally on level 4000+ after years of playing due to luck, perseverance, persistence and strategy! Higher levels are not easy at all, even the ones not labeled hard are more difficult now. If I can't back out and reset board when it's a crappy one and not helpful to my strategy, I may as well consider quitting. This backing out strategy at least gave one hope and motivation that the level would eventually be passed, now this is very upsetting and depressing to me. I have been addicted to Candy Crush as long as I can remember, and proud of my progress at 60 years of age! I'll stop playing like others said,  except for the daily spinning the wheel, to see if this "Scrooge gift fix" will be reverted back. If not, my addiction will be cured and I'll go back to reading and doing other projects that need to be done! 😾😣😠😞

    I too have joined the forum upon opening the app today and was befuddled to why I could no longer reset the board. Considering I’ve been playing this game for about 6 years and on currently on level 3745, I was slightly confused as to why. It now looks like I will never get past level 3745 because I will never play this game again until this issue goes back to the way it has always been. I will hold out hope this is changed back but if it isn’t I will be deleting CandyCrush and any other King apps that may be on my devices on 1/1/20. Always a good idea to piss off your most loyal players, always a sound business strategy.

    I fear that you may have shot yourselves in the foot dear King!!!!  Who in their right mind would pay money for boosters when they have no control over where those boosters may be placed.  E.g. What good does it do to use a coconut wheel only to have it placed in some unusable spot - if you back out you lose a life and a coconut wheel.  I’m up to level 5474, so have been playing for quite a while but I think you will be losing players in droves and I think I shall be one of them.
