am at the top of the levels and spend about $5 a week on candy crush, I was disappointed when they took away the ability to enter and exit without losing a life. I stayed because we were still getting the sugar drops and free boosters to augment our purchases as the game difficulty increased and increased. There was a time over the last year when they reduced the coins you received from 60 to 30. I stopped buying then as I saw it as a money grab. I started buying again when the 60 gold coins were restored. If the sugar drops are not returned King will not see any more money from me. But thanks for the time we had. LOL
when I get back sugar drops
Two days now, no sugar drops to collect
Hi Eddie, it probably is unofficial stats. I happen to stubble upon it searching for alternate games to play.
I just clicked on the link, from the report and it is the amount for CCS only
$4.2 million per day
You're both a bit late to the party that never stops, but that's OK.
Read the first post here to find out what's going on, then vote here & here (if you wish); maybe make a difference.
Will it actually make a difference?
But many others have voted, so WTH?
Okay! So that's why I can't win the win-a-bit challange... 😢 The levels are too hard!
But interesting too... 😊
@Eddie_Sparrow that is a frightening stat. and they make all these changes and why, to try make a little profit, this one may backfire on them never known so many people complaining about the game. CCS was always about enjoyment and passing your spare time away enjoying this highly addictive game, problem now people just not enjoying it. Strange decision now matter when it was implemented. Lets hope that they see the error of there ways or the new features are just as good as the old and get replaced quickly

Nice to see how many people are really pissed with kings latest decision. Like all the comments and glad everyone is putting there voice across, This is the only way that king are gonna listen, thats if they listen at all. everyday more and more people and all want the same, the game we all fell addictive too and not the money grabbing game its becoming
Half the fun was playing older levels to get sugar drops. Do they think this is better than the "only 5 limit"? They're taking all the fun out.
this is a great shock
you are giving unlimited life for 24 hours but what to do with that
i have completed all the new levels
generally i play old levels to collect boosters
so now u want that players should not play
good on your revenue part
why cant KING come with surprises rather than shocks
Hi @Llamallamared23 and welcome to our Community!
Please check more info about this here.
This is very funny. Same here. Why should we play previous levels if we don't get sugar drops or bot build up. Besides, new life isn't a problem since it's easy to get them simply by changing the date.
Better you cancel your stupid changes made in the worst possible time. Restore bots build up, sugar drop and remove the idiotic new menu bar.
Exactly. Better remove your stupid changes made in the worst possible time.
Hey crushers! With a heavy heart and great sadness, I want to announce that as of today, I am stopping playing CCS. I am currently at level 6647, which is going to be my last level, as it is IMPOSSIBLE to win without boosters. I have been playing for nearly 7 years now and this game was my joy, my relaxation, my obsession! It was the first and last thing to do in the morning and in the evening, collecting sugar drops and boosters and challenging myself to pass more and more levels. Not anymore! With the latest changes, they have stuck the last nail in their coffin! RIP CCS! I hope King will go bust soon! I have been loyal to the game for many years and would spend regular money on buying boosters every month, but in return they took away all the free and exciting features! The only change is the new layout and unlimited lives, which doesn't natter to me, as replaying one level for a hundred times without boosters is useless and boring! And so long anticipated changes haven't been introduced yet! In these troubled times, being locked in at home, this game was the pleasant way to kill the time, now it gives me a lot of frustration, anger and boredom. The incentive is gone, so is the pleasure! They even have the audacity to advertise on TV, claiming that the crush is real! Ha ha ha! They should add 'draining your bank account is real'! Greed has never been the greatest drive for progress! Anyway, I am out! And please, make sure you leave a negative review on Play store for this game! Stay healthy and safe!
I agree with you @heehawrules but there is more to consider.
1) If you have never spent money on this game, come on here complaining and then say that you will stop playing if they don't change it back is absurd. My response to you on behalf of King/Activision is to say "See ya, don't let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya". YOU are one of the reasons these changes are coming, so thanks for being part of the problem.
I wholeheartedly agree with you here and have posted to that effect in the past. However it is equally no loss to them if those players continue and it gives those who do pay, goals to beat.
2) Activision does not care about long term players that have helped to make them the top downloaded games in history. You (and I) know how to work the system to your advantage, occasionally buy boosters but mostly milk the freebies, etc. You blow through the levels and they have pay people tons of money to keep releasing content. They would actually prefer if you leave as collateral damage, because......
If you contemplate how much it would cost to employ 500 developers vs the income from the game it is a drop in the ocean, besides which, in a poll held in this very forum, it was clear that most at the top of the game are not so bothered about having many levels released each week and went for the lower option. The less levels there are, the longer they spend at the top and I for one enjoyed exploring the rest of the levels and building boosters whilst waiting for Wednesday. The only disadvantages being it is not possible to win the weekly race or make points on Fantastic 5.
3) Their bread and butter are all the lower level folks. They are not fully addicted yet, are an untapped revenue stream that does not know anything about the "old ways". They just have the new game, and their normal is whatever King tells them. A blank slate.
The low levels don't last very long - Up to 800 is how the game was back in 2014. Sure they may spend and get hooked...but when they reach the levels designed when we relied on Bots and Sugar Tracks they will be stuck for weeks at a time on most of the levels, unless they fork out an extortionate amount. If all they have is F5, that they can't even earn points on, they will quit.
I don't have figures but I imagine the majority of players are between 800 and 6000. They are the ones feeling screwed over with the removal of features, whether they pay in invested time or dollars. The 'new' players will share their frustration.
4) So Activision will out of necessity (to them) clear out a lot of players (most of whom are near the top) who will complain at every change. Weed them out and replace them with new revenue streams.
It is not a necessity to them, besides, the quicker they ruin the enjoyment of the game the quicker they will lose fresh meat. Word spreads.
