    Only being able to tick 2 tiles a day is frustrating, especially when my "teammates" either don't participate or they sit on the same tile for days. Also, the one time I was able to finish a row, it gave me a whole new board. I thought we only get a new board once the previous one had been completed? Please bring back the individual quests. BTW, when there were individual quests  I would play for hours, now I just play for a short time to tick my 2 tiles then am pretty much done, especially since no one is participating much on my soda squad and we'll  never get to 800 on my points alone.


    Another thing that doesn't help me is that, while my daily bonus resets at midnight, Mr T resets it's day at 3pm.  I'm on GMT +7 if that matters.

    I am posting here the reply I made to CCS support, after they gave me no answer to my previous request to get rid of the new changes.  It is just more of the same but I thought possibly they would actually read my thoughts if I went directly through support. 

    Also I started playing again from level 1 on a different device and can see how they will simply replace all us dedicated old timers by sucking in the new players!  So you start slow with no boosters or special challenges.  You are then introduced to boosts one at a time and are given 3 free ones after each intro.  Then they bring MTF and Mr. Stupid which pleases you cuz it's a way to earn extra boosts..... and the tasks are not nearly as difficult.  There are ways of getting around the few must use boosters to complete, so I was able to get around my non participating "teammates" and make the line by myself (over two days cuz of the 2 a day limit) which gives my loser partners a prize.  Now I start winning tickets for the Yeti's prize, which I originally assumed would be a prize as opposed to a purchase opportunity as it is.  So I get the eight tix and the same prize group appears, but guess what?  It is only 99 cents.  I am soooo excited to see all those boosts that for a buck.... (I'm ashamed to admit) I buy them.  Now for 2 hours I am the God of CCS and in a short time I get the offer again for a buck.  Yes, I bought them.  After I get to about level 100 though, the package is back to $9.99.   Now to be honest I know this isn't any accomplishment so it still isn't fun like the challenging game I used to play, but you can see how the next group of suckers will be born to replace all of us pissed off posting die hards.  I can see how the greedy bastards aren't listening to our continuing complaints and logical explanations of why they should return us our game.

    Anyway I'm either too stubborn or stupid to admit defeat so here's the letter I sent when support responded to me.  As Buffalo Springfield once said "For What It's Worth".

    I am writing once again to let you know how terribly disappointed I am in the changes you are making to the game.  I absolutely hate MTF.  1st I DO NOT want to be put on a team of players.  I have not one time felt that my group was an asset and at least 4 or 5 times have been in a group where 1 player took a square and then did nothing but block us from finishing a line.  I have won 3 times finally after I found a way to finish all 4 of the required tasks by myself!  That is no team, and if it was I would certainly expect better prizes (they are so small that I don’t even know why I participate).  I’m following in the community and cannot understand why you folks aren’t  listening.  The 2nd big point is that I feel very manipulated and would be required to purchase boosts to be able to make progress in the game any longer.  I used to work hard to complete tasks so I could win a few boosts, always coveted and saved until I was on a level I couldn’t possibly complete without them.  1 hour of a boost is meaningless in this case.  CCS was a great challenge of a game which I played faithfully.  I still check in now because I cannot help but believe you will listen to your fan base and give us back the game we all loved… but I do not really play anymore.  I’ve never seen such an outpour of folks that are wasting their time and energy trying to express to you how much we hate your changes.  Your apparent greed to increase boost purchases is shameful.  I did occasionally buy somethings when I was just in an impossible corner, but I will never have any fun playing if frequent purchases are the only way to move ahead.  It isn’t a game any more if I have to pay to win, and it certainly isn’t a fun game.  Please, please, please, won’t you folks listen.  We are amazingly dedicated and just want back the challenging game we had.  This WILL bite you in the ass and hurt the company’s reputation in the long run.  Openly greedy is just ugly and you are taking the fun out.  That doesn’t even make you a game developer any more.

    And if you aren’t going to listen or change the current mess, just man up and say so.  At least you won’t continue to make fools out of the thousands of disgruntled fans I am hearing. Sincerely,    Andrea Wells

    I don't think the teammates are real, but they must be computer bots, created by Activision. No one does anything, they just block lines forever. Disappointed is not enough.
    Same weird time schedule with MTF... Mine starts at 4 am, GMT +6.

    I posted on another thread that I played Friends for awhile when it came out but didn't stay with it long. I recently looked at it again and noticed they are doing things Soda used to do. You can play alone and not on teams, there are Quests and prizes every so often. Maybe since the game is new they haven't fooled around with it as much. From what I can tell most players are pretty happy and don't have pages of complaints like this thread and what another one is growing to be. King should look at the Friends model and realize this when Soda was at its best.

    I can finally say I’ve experienced someone blocking a square.  Has happened on the last two MTF boards.  In both cases, the player has sat on a corner square, effectively blocking two potential lines.  Grrrr.

    I think one of the reasons that people block squares in MTF is because when I don't click on one, I get pop-ups constantly saying "You haven't ticked on a square yet!"  It has become so annoying that I admit I have taken a square with no intention of completing it just so the pop-up messages would stop.

    @Nancy1234, could you pick up one of he impossible ones, like use the hammer then?
  • disappointedbykingdisappointedbyking Posts: 143 ✭✭✭
    MrTF is my only way to get boosters... I don't even play the level I'm on, I wait until I have gathered enough hammers to pass it I went from playing 2, 3 hours a day to 20 minutes.

    @Nancy1234, could you pick up one of he impossible ones, like use the hammer then?
    Yes, I usually do pick the hammer one and I also try to remember to stop the task when I am done playing so it unblocks the square in case someone else has lots of hammers to spare.

    I have kicked the tile in Mr. Tofee fair 4 times and about to kick 8 on the same board I thought only 4 in a row which I'm doing by myself then you get a prize now I'm making a complaint I'm being redirected everywhere and not helped
  • LauraLMasonLauraLMason Posts: 317 ✭✭✭✭
    Hi @missycrews once you have  4 green check marks in either a row or column you should be getting a prize. Diagonals don't count. If you need further help our community manager @Xarly should be able to look into it. Welcome to the community!
