First and foremost, I hope that all of you and your loved ones are well.
As announced at the end of February, in-game features as the Sugar Track, the Build-a-Bot and the Candy Pet were about to take a break in the games.
I would like to clarify that the decision of removing some of the feature of the game was announced in this community late February, but the fact that it was announced at the end February does NOT mean the decision was taken in a couple of days also at the end of February.
Such an important decision couldn't be taken and decided in only a few days, not even in only a few weeks. The Studio, during weeks and months was holding many different meetings, analysis and discussions. The conversations started already last year to be honest.
These features will certainly be missed in the game, but it is time to bring some new and exciting features to the game. As we already mentioned, remember that new features and improvements will be coming along this year to Candy Crush Saga and we really hope that you are as excited as we are.
One of these new feature coming to the game this year has been announced a few minutes ago. Please don't miss out this announcement [HERE] and the Community contest [HERE]
Lastly, in regards to the unlimited lives, I know that is not available for all countries, but last week we gifted unlimited lives for player in a few different countries. This week we are gifting unlimited lives for players based in Italy, Spain, UK and also India. 🙂 We’ll let you know in the game if we decide to offer unlimited lives in your country.
Thank you all and, please, stay safe!
Please don't pick me as I only score 25 points per day.
I would still like an explanation about why so many ways to earn boosters were taken away without any "new features and improvements". Seems like a lot of players will not stick around long enough to find out what they are going to be. Why take away so much all at once without giving anything useful in return? Re: F5, I guess that will make some people happy, I want something that will give me back ways to earn boosters.
I really wonder what those conversations were in "The Studio"...
Oh to have been a fly on the wall...
If you think that lame answer is going to change anything, you are incorrect. We have some very specific demands here. Could your customers be any more clear? Whoever made this decision should lose their job. Also, it would be nice if you would advocate for what your customers are CLEARLY telling you instead of carrying the company line.
The way I enjoyed playing Candy Crush was replaying a previous level I really enjoyed playing and building up as many boosters as I could. I just liked to play that level with boosters. So your new 'features' and 'contests' really do nothing for me. We want Build-a-Bot for previous levels and Sugar Drops. Period.
So instead of spewing the company line, march back in there and tell them to stop the War on Customers and make the simple changes we are demanding.
No sugar drops
not able to reset level
no new updates
I am on 6505 not able to be won with no boosters
but wait there are none
guess that is payback for being a loyal player
I understand that you miss the Sugar Track, Candy Pet and the old version of Build-a-Bot.
Letting these features to retire was not an easy decision, but the year 2020 is the ninth year of Candy Crush and it's time to give the game an real update and lift!
The possibility to win Boosters and other rewards will NOT get removed, even though the first 2-3 years in the game there were no extra features except the Booster Wheel where you got one Booster a day. We are not getting back to those old days with only one daily Booster.
Today the game is fully packed to the max with more than 6000 levels and loads of features and to free some memory and make some space in the game a spring cleaning is necessary.
Some years ago Dreamworld had to be removed to make it possible to add more live events and bonuses. Even though that was a hard decision, it gave the possibility that many new sweet things could be introduced in the game to make it even more fun.
During this year, many new features will get added and updated to replace the old ones. We are starting with a new fantastique version of Fantastic Five! If you want to try it out before others, then check it out here. After this, the next cool feature will be... I cannot reveal it yet, please stay tuned!
Stay safe and sweet 💚
I wonder how many of "The Studio" have actually played the game...or are they just bean counters
Can't wait! Literally CAN NOT WAIT!
(please don't ban me for capitals.)
What’s the point of fantastic five if you can’t get past any levels.. the way you have it now you have to be able to get past the levels that are impossible to pass without boosters. This game has become a joke... shame on you too for taking away our chance to play and complete levels with all that’s going on in the world right now... all that matters to you people is the almighty dollar...
You know how many beans make fantastic 5!
so I did and the response was overwhelming....NOT...it was more along the lines of when Trump told a reporter that his question is nasty and he is a bad reporter lol
I'm on level 6052. It is horrible and has some kind of glitch. It always says oops you don't have enough to complete order. I had all of the orders and just had the spawner left. I'm deleting the game again and making room for games that are fun and beatable.
they're systems are online, internet is not in lockdown, they just don't care
why you take away before you are ready to implement the new rewards? that's seriously backwards
you talk about giving free lives as if they are some physical resource and there's a real shortage lol
and while you have your meetings please discuss getting beta testers and fix all the bugs
