I am very disappointed with recent changes in the game. The vast majority of my friends playing Candy Crush Saga have disappeared and I can't select them again. So almost no possibility to request lives anymore. Very unfortunate. How can I add these friends again?
On the other hand, the rankings have disappeared. Impossible to know the progress of all my playing friends. Why is that? It was fun and useful.
And finally, but this is not new, there is no longer a clear distinction between those who ask me for lives and those who send them to me, as it used to be. It was much easier to see who was asking for lives and to respond.
All of these changes are unfortunate and detract from the fun of the game. But it is true that other changes are positive
