    I was very happy when there were no timed boosters for that I thank king, it was very annoying to see useless timed boosters and now fix the “FIX” and make players all over the world happy in the new year
  • Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?

    Dear community,

    I'd like to share with you some information in regards to a god old known issue of the game: 

    as you may be aware, when we access a level, we don't use any move and we exit the level without playing it, we don't lose any life. 

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

    That means that, once it's fixed, if we access a level to check it out, we don't do anything and we decide to exit the level to go back to the map, we will be losing a life.

    Thank you very much for your understanding 🙂

    Have a delicious day and let's keep crushing!

    I understand you’re just the messenger but this is, pure and simple, a money grab.  Lose lives/boosters etc...purchase more. I’m afraid you will lose many players as was the case when this last occurred.  You’re getting Greedy King.....

    I am exceptionally unhappy to hear this. I have not been playing as much, and, as my free boosters dwindle, I will surely play even less. It has been a month now. King has made their decision. It is up to us to make ours. I know I have made mine and will not spend another penny on this game. There is a saying: Kill the goose that lays the golden eggs. I think King has done this.

    Level 6101 is an absolutely ridiculous hard level to play. Even with some luck for a couple of combos, I was not even close to finish that level. So without the board reset option, I am stuck without any boosters and I will now for sure stop playing the game until King fix it. What a shame! It was fun to play the game until now.

    I beat it, but it took me...

    3 tries, and on the third try:
    A full set of Build-A-Bot boosts.
    All three available boosters.
    A couple lollipop hammers.
    5 extra moves.

    Brutal, but not impossible.

    I see the "KING" is still being a tyrant and not answering this thread.  If anyone who had brain can they are going to lose loyal customers.  The FIX should be FIXED!!!!!  

    I read some of the other threads and the all got a response from the CM or one his minions BUT not US.  It makes me think I just have on stinky clothes or something.

    Please give us an answer because I am trying to move on with my life.  It was there during the hard times before cancer took my husband.  It was a constant companion sitting in doctor's offices, hospital, ReHab, and Hospice.  

    I have said what needs to be said.  Now KING needs to give us an answer!!!!!!!!!!!

    Same - checked in this morning, backed out and when I saw lose life just closed the whole game down. My boss wonders why I'm at work so early!! ROFL Its because I don't waste 30-40 minutes every morning to start the day on this game.

    Almost forgot about this too from @Pounawea :
    "This behaviour was not intended since the very beginning and very soon, this issue is going to be fixed.:-1: :angry: 

    LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE!!

    Have any of you seen a more condescending and blatant lie ever? Issue? 7 years.... With constant development and changes, most of which were good until 2015, and this always slipped as an unintended issue.

    I've got so much time back and never realized how much I actually wasted on this game. And extra money back in MY pocket, not in King/Activision's pockets. So all round, thanks for your lie Pouna and this terrible blatant greedy money grab King.

    I continue to play but not as much as in the past.  But more to the point there were times when I would spend money for boosters and gold bars. Not often, but enough where I was definitely paying to play. However, since the ‘fix’ where I can no longer reset the board and, even worse, lose any boosters I either paid for or worked hard to accumulate, I have not given King another penny nor will I do so until King backs out the fix.

    I remember this level @frenioz00.  This is a horrible level!  I was stuck on this level about a week ago.  I felt boosters should be avoided at least in the beginning because I would always run out of possible moves before the conveyer belt came back around.  One suggestion read was to avoid making large combinations (up to 4-5 matching candies) if possible.  

    That level is the perfect example of just pure luck and praying to the CC gods for a favorable board. If you can get to colorbombs together before the start then you have a chance.  I believe I got one but it was when the conveyor came back around which was pure luck.  

    Here is a video from Cookie which is from a blog: https://www.youtube.com/user/MsCookieKirby

    Hang in there and you will get passed this ridiculous level.  This is another perfect example where the board reset could ease the stress in this level.

    By now, it is obvious King is never going to respond.  Their inaction is essentially their response.

    Uninstalled the game today.  Goodbye, King!  Never will I purchase/download any King apps again!

    Goodbye everyone!

    So, where is that official statement from the Studio? Here's a summary for your entertainment:

    Good morning everyone,

    I totally understand the frustration that this change has created, this community topic is the most commented topic of the year already and it's been 'only' on for some days. The way we are used to play Candy Crush Saga has changed, 1 of these mechanics that has been there for a long time (and hasn't been changed for different reasons) so being upset and furious is also totally understandable. Let's face it, this is a very unpopular decision. But as for every decision that is taken, it has its reasons and this is exactly what the Studio will be sharing with us today. 

    As I've been telling you during these days, your feedback and sentiment has been forwarded to the Studio, but not only that, also your suggestions and ideas for improvements. I really appreciate everyone's efforts for keeping this discussion 'civilized', for remaining calm and cooperate with the community. As for the ideas we have received, from the Boosters to the at least 1 chance to reset the board per day, they have been all shared and the Studio are taken them into account. 

    As you all know, I recently joined this community and I'm still getting to know things about the game and, most importantly, to understand you, our players, your different games experiences and your feelings when playing the game. This discussion is very difficult, there are a lot of emotions and tension involved, but I'd like to share a little bring side: as a Community Manager, this discussion is teaching me a lot about you and about the game and I have the feeling that will unite more the community and I'm happy about that. These learnings are already helping me to understand and represent your voice and sentiment better.

    Once again, thank you for being here and for all your feedback. Stay tuned, I'll be posting the Official communication from the Studio soon.

    Hello @Fakhruddin-2 ,

    What I wanted to say is that all the community ideas, suggestions and proposals for the game are important to me and they are going to be forwarded to the Studio. This way, they will be aware of the Community voice and sentiment and they can take your feedback into account. 

    As commented earlier today, the Studio will be sharing with us soon an Official communication in which we will get to read and understand the reason behind the changes applied. 

    Once again, thank you for being here and for all your feedback. Stay tuned.

    Dear community,

    I'd like to confirm that today we won't be publishing the official announcement.

    Stay tuned.

    Hello everyone,

    We are still working together with the Studio and, for now, I cannot confirm yet whether the official communication will be published today or not.

    Dear community,

    As commented early this morning (on this side of the world 🙂), we are still working together with the Studio and we will most likely get an official communication published in the forum next week. I'll keep you posted, but for now, I would also like to say that there are no plans to undo this change in the game.  

    I know I'm repeating myself a lot, but I really appreciate everyone's efforts for keeping this discussion calm and respectful. Please keep on doing it! 

    Have a delicious day and see you around the forum.

    Dear community,

    Warm welcome to all newcomers!

    On another hand, to @WatchMEcRush21 comment and others, we are still in conversations with the Studio. As soon as we have it, the official announcement will be posted in this community.

    Hello @TurboTim66 and @Ledalasvegas

    As I commented in previous posts, I totally understand the frustration caused by this change in the game. As you might know, I recently joined this community and I'm still getting to know things about the game and, most importantly, about you, our players.

    Your different game experiences and your feelings when playing the game are very important to me. Every one and each of us can play and strategize in a completely different way and this is what I aim to understand. During these days that have passed, some players might have tried to change/adapt the way they play to this new scenario, some might have already quit. Other players, perhaps, might have decided to wait until the official announcement is released. We have a big community & forum members (growing!) of Candy Crushers and I want to know from all of you so I can represent your voice and sentiment better. 

    I understand the situation is extremely sensitive and I totally understand that you might quit the game because you fully disagree with the latest changes brought to the game. This discussion is very difficult, there are a lot of emotions and tension involved.

    At the same time, your frustration, disappointment, and concern about the final decision of the team cannot lead to disrespectful comments to my persona, nor to the people working here and nor any member of this community. Insults are not welcome in this community.

    That being said, I'll insist on that part again, as soon as we have the official announcement, I'll be posting it here. 

    Thanks a lot everyone and have a delicious day.
