Regarding this so-called “fix” (I keep trying to post this comment, but for whatever reason it won’t post):
I’ve been playing this game off and on since 2013. I recently came back last year (2018) after a very long sabbatical and started with the 1st level as a kind of challenge.
In the past year or so, I’ve learned a lot about the game in terms of how to get free boosters and gold (i.e. including how to very efficiently in a fast way - do sugar drops twice a day; something that long time users should definitely know about, but I guess some don’t for whatever reason), winning various contests and so on (this also includes a way to - at times - get unlimited boosters by signing in and out of Facebook if on a mobile, something that I’m pretty sure 99% of the people are likely unaware of). If anyone needs advice on any of these tips and tricks, just message me, although I’m sure MANY people will now be quitting (sorry to digress).
However, I believe that this so-called “fix” [sic] - AFTER 6+ years (!) - is total BS. The only thing I can think of as the reason that King came out with this so-called “fix,” is greed and the fact that they just want to make MORE money. I’m glad that unlike many/most (?) other players, I did not spend any money (only because I was fortunate enough to know a lot of tips and tricks in terms of how to get free boosters, gold, lives, etc). But of course, I would probably be even way more peeved - and I already am as it is - if I did spend a lot money.
I’m one of the players like many of the other veterans here, that waits each week for new levels to be added. I just completed the highest level (5915) a few days ago (the highest for iOS as of 12-9-19), but with this “fix,” I definitely don’t think this will be as fun as it used to be - it’s already VERY hard as it is - and I definitely feel that King has pulled off a big “con.”
But I especially feel bad for all of the people that either haven’t advanced as high as I have, or people that just started playing a few months ago.
Hey King: please listen to all of your customers and do the RIGHT THING. Reverse this totally horrendous decision regarding this so-called “fix” (that was NEVER an issue for over 6+ years! 🤔) - and bring back our ability to exit the board/reset the board and not lose a life if not making a move - otherwise, many people definitely will be quitting. And less customers = less money, right?
Thanks for letting me speak my mind and thanks for reading my “vent.”
Last but not least, an open question: Can you think of a different way for us to preview levels in the game?
Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?
