    Wow, 
    Still no response? Not even from the CMs?? You know, even “Sorry guys, we haven’t heard anything either!” 
    You are all watching this thread, it’s not going away. 
    It’s killed the game guys!!
    Cant you see that?
    Hi there, @Fury161 !

    Unfortunately, the CM does not consistently respond to inquiries here or something else which is what I noticed. He sent me a message on December 16 accusing me of urging the members here to boycott Candy Crush Saga. I responded to his message on the same day telling him that "Never in my postings did I urge people to Boycott Candy Crush Saga. If you think I did, please point to it. Other people in the thread did that, not me. I love this game, otherwise I would not have posted thousands of videos on YouTube. I think you misunderstood my comments."  

    I understand that he is still new to this job and just learning the ropes. In his short period of time here, he should not accuse anyone unless he is sure. He can't rely on Hear Say especially from people who has ax to grind. I believe my messages were ignored. So, I am not surprised if we don't hear from him on this thread at all. I think this is how it is going to be from now on. His silence is deafening!

    Hi there, @JethrinaBodina

    For me, declining the Boosters by closing the app is not a good idea. I've done that before accidentally, not paying attention to what I was doing since I am in the habit of multi-tasking. I miss out on the boosters. I thought I would get them back but didn't. It is better to accept them while they are around and let them time-out if I can't play. Sometimes I get 2 one-time use boosters when they timed-out which is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. 😊 As far as the Sugar Drops, I like the New Feature better because I don't have to claim the Boosters right away unlike the old one. The Boosters can sit the Wheel Of Power-Ups in the Game Map until I've used up the Timed Boosters that I just received so they don't overlap which is nice. Unfortunately, we're back in the Old System where the Boosters are distributed towards the end of the game in increments and have to be claimed right away.
    Wheel of Power Ups?? What's dat? I don't get to NOT claim any of the boosters. Snooze you lose, and you don't get to use so you lose anyway. They time out on levels that don't let you choose to use them. That's the stupid part. They can time out AFTER we've turned on the damn timer.
    @JethrinaBodina

    Hi Jethrina! 

    In the Game Map, the Power-Ups are represented by the Wheel which is why I call it the Wheel of Power-Ups. The Sweet Supplies have a Backpack Icon so I call it Backpack of Sweet Supplies and the Fun Events has a Gold Cup Icon so I call it Gold Cup Of Fun Events. These just make sense, don't they?

    As I said in my comments to @LuckyMe1189 , "we don't have any control on Timed Boosters when we get them. If we get Color Bombs and Striped and Wrapped Candy Combinations, oftentimes they get automatically used in the Pre-Play Page. The Swedish Fish and the Coconut Wheels don't. The Coconut Wheels oftentimes get Timed-Out in the Backpack of Sweet Supplies which is awful."

    Was hoping for some “Christmas Cheer” news, but nope. King has still not removed the ridiculous “fix” for board re-sets. Since the “fix”, not a single board for me has had any boosters positioned where they were any use. The delightful 15 minute boosters were a waste. I used numerous lives and boosters, usually to lose the game needing only one more move. Sorry King, not buying the “ Fix” story and not playing the game as often as I used to.

    Yah, I rarely get to use the timed boosters cuz they aren't a choice for the level I'll on I'm on even though EVERY booster COULD be able to be chosen on each level. The dumbest part is that they reward you then take the reward from you immediately after. We should be able to play any booster on any level and start the timer when we are ready to play

    I noticed the piggy bank went from 60 down to 30, then up to 33...now back up to 60.  I stopped buying it after the board reset issue.  They need to reinstate it before I will purchase it again.

    I don't even HAVE the piggy bank anymore. Don't know where that went! Good grief.

    This game makes me crazy!!!!  How many versions of the game are out there?  My piggy bank is sitting full on 30 and I have never had 60.  I logged on and took 5 minutes to lose my five lives.  Is it so hard to put out a game where everyone has the potential to buy or not buy the same number of gold bars.  We should also have the right to start the game with a board we like.  OH I forgot they have focus group to to test different versions of game.  Evidently I don't belong to any group but left to find an even playing field on my own.  I haven't purchased anything since King put in his Fix and it hasn't made that much difference to how I play the game it just takes me a lot longer to pass a level and lose my lives very quickly.
    That is my two cents worth for what it's worth ( I keep forgetting that two cents is worth nothing !!!! )

    Hey... I don't even HAVE a piggy bank soooo... There are so many differences between my Mom's games and mine, her two devices are different, and she really gets the short end cuz I at least have Booster Bot or Tiffi's holiday boosters. On the other hand, Mom has ad videos and I haven't had them since an update in Nov. That's what brought me to this forum to begin with.
    It isn't fair, especially when players are in contests with other players and they have zero chance of winning if they are hobbled by the random insanely frustrating updates being pushed to random players on a weekly basis. You never know what the game will look like on any given day. 
    King thinks that's a good thing, I do NOT.

    Last night my husband pointed out a TV commercial for Candy Crush. A cartoon woman was swinging a lolihammer. Candy Crush is spending money on commercials to get new players, but has put in a change that is losing them playing customers. How ironic! And very sad.

    It is not the Daily Booster Spin. It is from the Daily Treat Calendar. These Timed Boosters are nice to have especially when I am stuck in the Quick Sand with no help to pull me out. They only get wasted now if I am too busy to play or when I am asleep when they come in.

    When it comes to Candy Crush Saga, I know the Ins and Out of it. I am have been playing this game since its release in 2012.   
    Last night I spun the wheel to get my daily, and I got an hour of combos. I closed down, just spun, got the same, don’t have an hour to play, so I closed. Another way they are taking boosters we can bank and use later
    Hi there, @LuckyMe1189 !  

    If it is not Timed, you can bank it. However, if it is Timed, it will only stay in your Backpack of Sweet Supplies at the amount of time given.

    One more thing, we don't have any control on Timed Boosters when we get them. If we get Color Bombs and Striped and Wrapped Candy Combinations, oftentimes they get automatically used in the Pre-Play Page. The Swedish Fish and the Coconut Wheels don't. The Coconut Wheels oftentimes get Timed-Out in the Backpack of Sweet Supplies which is awful. 


    All I know is that I have gotten timed boosters, closed the app on my iPad, reopened it later (maybe 3-4 hrs) and they are right there waiting for me to begin. As long as I don’t close the app in the background, I’m good.

    I wonder if king is keeping track of how many boosters are being used compared to before the “fix”. I bet it is lower.  Also how many games are exited and not finished.  I bet it is higher.  I’m not going to use boosters when they are placed in unusable spots and I can’t reset.  I’m also not going to play out futile games or use boosters on them.

    Hi there, @brenda1966

    I had 58 Gold Bars that I accumulated from playing levels and for winning a challenge last Monday. They are all gone in a few minutes just like that. I used them up in 2 Levels that are ridiculously hard.

    We’ve all recognized that the ‘fix’ is only a benefit for the company as it makes it more challenging for the players (and I assume the company wanted to entice more players to spend money).  

    I’ve also been playing since the games inception and have never spent a penny but am at the top of the game (for my platform) each week.  Depending on the week, it now might take more time but I typically can get through all new levels within hours of their release. 

    Its interesting that this community board exists for everyone to vent without a single person from the company acknowledging or responding.    

    At the end of the day, it’s just a game... play if you want or don’t....end of story!
