    @Bumper2019,

    They are probably thinking inside the box, this is just my opinion. I believe they’re counting on a whole new customer base built on more new people that have never never played, downloading this game due to the Covid virus affecting everyone being home, however I agree with you on new non-paying customers and I don’t think they thought about the lack of income when it comes to these newcomers that will be downloading and playing the game. I believe they are counting on new people not knowing any better about the old and fun way the game was. To someone new signing up, they are going to get frustrated real quick about the inability to gain levels King thinks that they are going to pay for a whole bunch of stuff, but how are they going to pay when they are at home not working with no income.

    I could be wrong, but I believe that they are looking for new people, new income, and ousting, in their minds, the smaller group of loyal candy crush players.

    Either way it doesn’t matter because I don’t believe they realize that a fun game in itself can generate more income than a game targeted to force you to purchase items with cash money to be able to play and advance to newer levels.

    I believe that they used some Computer generated algorithm that they probably spent a lot of money on, to tell them that their current game profile will generate more income.

    I believe they see the input of people as not important enough to utilize in their equation to gain profit 😠

    Pardon any mistakes I have made with punctuation or wording, it gets difficult to type when you are in a lot of pain , Thank you for listening to me rant!

    This goes out to my fellow frustrated candy crush users who remember when it was fun to play before they changed it to their current platform! 👍

    Exactly! - CCS calls itself a game, by definition games are for recreation. They obviously cannot even comprehend that people only want to do enjoyable things with their recreational time. What ever fancy machines they have, all they really need is a modicum of common sense!!!!

    @SufletCald How many times have you been a new member recently? I would like to know because it may have distorted the poll

    It is disappointing that the build a bot has changed to this... I too... been playing many years .. waiting every week for more.. then this is taken away.. seems like the solution is to find a different game. King ... this is bad... pushing people away.

    Yep, can see the investors saying that to each other at the AGM

    i really miss the old bot, i wish they bring it back

    CC is getting frustrating. I hate it when it says “Time to Relax” when you open the app. Like yeah when you bring back the old formats! Who is a King staff we can tag? I know they wouldnt care as usual, but maybe I can tag everyday to annoy them too. 🙄

    Could always tag an investor. Think staff are more likely to bury their head in the sand.

    I've come here because I'm on the verge of deleting the app as it doesnt make me want to play anymore, I feel like I definitely want to find a new game or app to use in my free time.

    Levels have become almost impossible if you've been playing it for a while, 0 gratification, 100% frustration, 0 motivation, (0 relaxation) because of the new update meaning you cant build up boosters from old levels. I thought I'd try it over the past few days but it's not fun anymore, theres no fun involved in playing it now :( been playing for years, this definitely is the worst update of all, and new players wont even get far either, it's not enticing when you get stuck and have no way forward.

    Another thing I’ve noticed about the bot lately is that if you eventually manage to build it, as I did this morning, it will sometimes go back to the beginning for no reason - I had the full bot, lost two games, went down two stages and stopped playing for a bit. When I opened CCS a couple of hours later it had reset to nothing, which is infuriating now that it’s so hard to get!

    I am sure the programmers have the algorithms set to keep people buying. How many times are you just one or two moves away? They can set the algorithms to measure how many times you try a level before buying. They can track the frequency of play when you haven’t been able to pass a level and periodically give you a winning board to keep you hooked. They can track learn predictions about our play and set the game to receive the optimal level of purchases. If people stop buying, the game will get easier. But it’s hard not to buy that 10 bars of gold when you know you can win in one move. They hook us, then milk us.
