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

     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. 

    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.

    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.

    Dear community,

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

    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. 

    I'll keep you posted!

     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

    Your feedback is very much appreciated, it helps us understand how this change is affecting already your player experience. Keep your feedback coming  

    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. 



    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.

     again, as soon as we have the official announcement, I'll be posting it here. 


    WOW. 
    That's all I've got.

    King, please just answer this: WHY did you make the change?  (A real answer please, not, "Well it was never supposed to be that way in the first place." 

    Just...WHY?

          Yes the silence is deafening. Very disrespectful. Information and feedback the headline says. Not much of that going on......

    Well, the answer to that question was taken down with the original bomb-dropping announcement. 
    "We would prefer that you buy boosters and gold bars....." 
    Yes, that's a quote. Yes, that's why it was taken down within a few days and replaced with the current, similar topic of discussion.

    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 don’t know what a build a bot boost is.  I have never had it.  I also never had any videos to get free boosters like many have.  If that’s what it took to pass the level just think how impossible it will be for someone who has only the 3 available boosters which have now been rendered useless by King and their fix.  I used to buy the piggy bank if I had limited boosters and no lollipops or hands but since they made the boosters useless, I still play but I don’t pay.  Switching the board was the only way to advance on mostly any level past 5000.  It’s all about fairness and King this fix wasn’t fair to me.

    Is this topic still being discussed? King already made that decision just like every other game makers, they are all after the money, they care less for their player, they think all of us are kids. King, I hope you're enjoying the revenue slump?

    No official statement yet! 73 pages ... 
    Greedy. Unrespectful. 
    It was back in December... And still no official statement!
    Even worst: CM is not considering us. 
    Unrespectful is not enough anymore.

    It really has made playing the game a lot less enjoyable for way more people than they can possibly imagine. I've lost the Booster Bot now and that was the only way I was able to get to level 3030. My luck finally ran out and they've given me a link to BUY boosters. That's not gonna happen, so I'll be done playing soon, as well. 
    I really wish that everyone played the SAME game and had the SAME "features" in that game. My Mom has never had the Booster Bot either. It's not fair.
    One small ray of hope is the real-for-keeps boosters you now get from the Sugar Drop harvest that can be done every 8 hours. Levels 1476 and 666 are the best I've found for getting them, and I go to every easy level that has them. Until they decide to "fix" it, you don't lose what you've collected if you don't pass the level. 
    Hopefully you'll be able to at least find some fun playing those levels just to hoard boosters for awhile! 
    Or, like so many others, tell King they've lost yet another pay-to-play-er and it's their loss and some other company's gain

    I responded to a thread last week called “How many levels are in candy crush?”  Pounwea was responding to people in thread, so I called him out why no response in one of the largest threads in this community.  He ignored my comment and went on talking about how many levels in Facebook and Win10!  He mentioned that Facebook needs to catch up on the number of levels compared to Win10.  

    Stop ignoring us, @Pounawea!!!!!

    That does kinda stink. I wonder if the King regrets throwing Pounawea under a bus as big as CCS mere weeks after he introduced himself to the global presence that should respect and be happy to see him in the community every day.
    This is an extreme case of shooting the messenger... But he really stepped in it by making false promises and not following through. 
    The posts that say he'll provide updates need to be honored if he ever hopes to save face and get back any of the respect that he's lost over this ridiculous devisive decision they've made to screw up the game and it's players.
    If he has in fact been put under the cone of silence by the King, they need to seriously rethink that strategy because it's NOT WORKING and it's destroying Pounawea's standing in the Community.

    I realize that with a volunteer position such as @Pounawea's it's pretty much a you-get-what-you-paid-for situation (in this case, substandard responses and slightly childish ghosting), but it seems to me there should be someone or something we can contact to complain about this extremely unprofessional behavior? Anybody know? Because yes, this is nearly as ridiculous as the fake fix is.

    He's not a volunteer! That's the problem! He's a paid employee of the King and he's destroying his reputation by not addressing the massive number of irate players that are leaving in droves on a daily basis.
    It's out of control. It's wrong on so many levels and EXTREMELY unprofessional of a person with a job title like Community Moderator, or whatever he's calling himself right now.

    It's time to end the standoff, Pounawea.

    Im sure that he is specifically being told NOT to engage this thread by higher ups -  be it people in “the Studio” or a different branch of operations.  Correct me if I’m wrong but not even Superstars have been commenting here recently have they?  It’s not his fault if he is being directed this way.  Either way the lack of any response at all whatsoever after more than a month is completely ridiculous.

    Perhaps they’re simply feeling out the stats on gameplay since last month when the “fix” was implemented.  The only levels I played under the “fix” were a handful to get to the end of the episode I was on...since then I log in daily, spin the wheel, check to see if the board reset is back, then when it’s not I simply close out the app.  I have the feeling many players do the same.

    At this point after what, 90 pages of this thread all we can do is just stop playing.  When their numbers go down they’ll have to respond.  As you said Jethrina, I noticed non-timed rewards were phased back in - maybe they think the majority of players will settle for that back and stop complaining about the “fix”.

    I feel as if I have been transported back in time with the behavior of the "KING" officers.  Anyone with a lick of sense knows you try to keep your constituents happy so they won't revolt.   You are failing on so many levels.  What this community is asking for is an answer .  If you are not man enough to do that then maybe you should step down and get someone in there that is not afraid to answer.  The answer can be for the fix to stay as it is now or you can undo the fix and make a lot of people happy.

    Be a man and give us an answer!!!!!
