So it’s official now. NO MORE Sugar Drops/SDs (I’m still not sure why they removed my other post without even a warning).
A totally mind boggling decision by King IMO. As the saying goes, why “fix” something that’s not broke?
What was SO BAD about people being able to play CCS and having the ability collect Sugar Drops for free boosters?
I really would like the people affiliated with King and/or helping them here on the forum (as volunteers and whatnot) to please explain why this Sugar Drop concept was not a “good” thing and/or why it was something that needed to go.
I have included a screen shot of what one could possibly get if they played for SDs once per day (grant it, probably only a very small % of people in all likelihood even did this on a consistent basis):
My sugar drops gone for weeks, build a botsometimes moves up with wins of new games,, Periodically disappears and comes back with less progress Irritating that king just randomly takes progress that you’ve earned. Down to playing max five games a day. King has also illuminated another weekly contest usually started on Monday if you had 70 hours to 10 45 levels and you could win four or five boosters that seems to be going too,
big money grab by king
@crankinbeat played every day twice a day, best way to get boosters for those hard to do levels. Sad day king removing this from the game. Even sadder they removed move things all in one go like boost a bot on previous levels. Mind boggling i agree and not 1 new feature ready .Just hope these ridiculous decisions back fire on them badly.

You better put a trademark on it. It will become priceless soon. Lol
My build a bot disappeared about a year and a half ago. Never seen it again. I now refer to it as "Crap-a Bot".
If they have omitted sugar drops, I will quit the game. They are needed to collect boosts. Please do not mess this game up.
Instead of redirecting me to another forum, it will be great if someone from the so called development team could answer if build a bot be back and the players can build it by playing old levels. And also if the sugar drops will be back. And if someone could explain the logic behind removing them from the game. What a nightmare it is. That too when the most of us are under lockdown. Why do you remove features which the players enjoy ? If you ppl are running out of ideas better kill the game instead of removing such features.
Hi @Crazy Cat Lad,
Do you know that the game is broken? everyone doesn't like the Build-a-Bot changes including myself!! the game now is very hard and now we want everything back to normal because it's coronavirus days and everyone is on their houses and they want to beat a lot of levels and now if you win one everyday, you are a legendary! and to be honest with you, the change is not good at all... 😖
Now i saw this image and i will say WTH!!! This is unfair!!! 😤
Thanks @Yosca for sharing this thing with us!!
I should ask you @Crazy Cat Lad... why the team did this? why they make him change as no one can play previous levels to build him again and win the game!? WHHHHHHHYYY is the team made a 3 tiers build a bot for players are playing the new levels? Why Build-a-Bot is not appearing in monday? Why? Why? WHY????
Please i just want the feature back to normal... from the beginning! so everyone can win easy espacially that there's more than 6000 levels to play!!!
I will tag @Pounawea as well just to make sure that the team will see my comment and bring everything back to normal!
Not because for me but for everybody else, i've see that the game reachs 1 billion downloads on Google Play Store and i'm very sad thata lot of people are deleting the game because this freaking change!! 😔
Please let us win easily, we love you!!
Hi @vshanmugam . Welcome to our Community 🙎
Have Discussion about this issue 👇️
You're so right. I am trying to get golden crowns on previous episodes, now that I have unlimited lives. Not wasting any boosters on them, but it is so difficult to get the three sugar stars. It becomes so boring after a while that I actually loose interest in the game. That's when I move to the forum to vent.
KING can at least not take the forum away. So many CRUSHERS unhappy, at least we have a community.
Exactly! I also used to (mostly) play twice a day whenever possible and I always looked forward to it, lol.
And yes, over this time, as one could imagine, I had earned hundreds and hundreds of boosters. Like many others, this of course helped me to get to the very top, now just waiting each week for the new levels to be released.
And this of course was the one reason (the only reason) I was still playing CCS - while waiting for new levels to be released - to collect the SDs.
Unfortunately, like many others (please see some of my earlier posts on this Forum), I was rarely ever given the chance to play with the build-a-bot (or any of its variations) as this hardly ever appeared for me.
HOWEVER, I was always able to count on the good ole’ SDs. Surely at least this would NEVER go away! (or so I thought! 🙄)
This definitely feels like a hard punch to the gut TBH!
NO MORE SDs?! Seriously?!
Where are all of the apologists (whether you work for King officially or not) to defend this (IMO) horrible and atrocious decision?
I want to hear from you folks. I will agree to disagree with you, while respecting your right to hold your POVs.
But I want to know how you will defend this unfathomable decision to get rid of the SDs (I would like to know how King and it’s PR spinners are trying to “justify” doing this).
It is interesting to see that a lot of money is being spent marketing CC on TV and Facebook. I wonder if this is because they have lost many players and need to recruit more poor fools to play and spend their hard earned money?
There are scores of new one-star reviews on the game now so hopefully it will put potential players off. I do hope so. I am sure we all would be willing to change our reviews if the game we loved was returned.
I won the CC Saga Color Bomb contest & promised 6 hours for 2 boosters, but only received 1 hour. This happened last week, too!
They finally broke me. I’ve been stuck on levels before but even with unlimited lives I can’t even come close to beating 6626. New levels are just based on luck anymore. I was disappointed with the sugar drops taken away and build a bot is worthless if you can’t replay levels you’ve already passed. After a couple of years of playing this game almost every day I’m DONE! I won’t fall for the micro transactions scam so I’ll find another app to spent my time on. There are plenty of free apps out there to play. Goodbye fellow candy crushers. Keep your distance and stay safe!
I have completed the highest level and play everyday to earn boosters on previous levels. Now that I cannot earn boosters on previous levels, I am probably done with Candy Crush. Why change something that draws players back every day. Without the ability to earn boosters every day there is no reason to go back to CC daily. Very disappointed with this change.
