    I haven’t get this new feature!

    Soda Squad arrived in my game yesterday.  Too soon for me to pass judgment, but I have a few initial thoughts and observations to share.  
    Thus far, three of my five teammates have managed to earn at least one point.  We have a total of 7 out of 800 points needed for the final prize and 14 days in which to accomplish that.  I’ve earned one point for playing daily and 3 points for passing a level with three stars.  
    Don’t know exactly what we are playing for yet, other than three treasure chests of increasing size.  Can’t tell exactly how many points is needed for each chest.  
    I realize past performance is not always an indicator of future performance, but using my past performance and a little math, here’s what I’ve come up with:
    800 points divided by 5 players is 160 points per player, assuming all contribute equally.
    One player can earn 14 points by playing daily.  That means a player needs to earn 146 points by completing levels and episodes.  
    On May 16 I posted in the Mr. Toffee discussion that I was on level 2677.  (12 days ago).  Since then I have completed 12 levels, including one episode.  In those 12 episodes, I’ve earned a total of 28 stars.  I think the 12 days and 12 episodes is coincidental as I’ve been stuck for multiple days on several levels.  But, if those 12 days counted toward Soda Squad, I would have earned a total of 40 points, plus the unknown of what completing an episode is worth, toward the 160 points I would need to “contribute equally” to the final goal.  With two days left to play.  If the others on my team had similar experiences, that would only put us a quarter of the way to the final goal of 800 points.  Not sure whether that would be enough to open any of the chests.  

    As as I said, I’m not drawing any conclusions yet...

    Update:  I just passed a level and received two stars, but only one point.  Is this a bug or am I incorrect in thinking it is one star for one point?

    Ignore my update.  I think it did give me two points.  Sorry about that.

     Hey @candysodacrusher,

    Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts and impressions thus far! We want players to find out by playing but I can already give you some hints: the difficulty of the levels will also affect how many points you get from them (and you are right, the stars also have an impact :wink:). Also, remember that ending an episode will also give quite some points.

    Regarding the rewards, each chest is obviously different, depending on the milestone, but you will be able to check those rewards as you progress (and please do come and let us know your feedback!).

    And in terms of your team, I think it's important to know that, in order to keep our players happy, if a team manages to complete the event within the 14 days, the team will be able to remain together. If your team fails to get the last prize within the time of the event, you will be rematched accordingly (meaning that if you were active, you will be placed with other equally active players the next time).

    I hope this information helped! Again, please come and let us know your impressions as you and your team progress :smile:.

    Cheers,
    Xarly

    I also got  the squad yesterday. Same in my team, 3 active 2 nothing. I won a super hard level with 3 stars and got 5 points. So far we have a total of 90 points. I am very curious how it will continue.

    I thought MTF was the worst, but now I must agree with Einstein. " Only 2 things have no boundaries, the universe and human stupidity. And I'm not too sure about the universe."
    Well, the squad is meant for beginners. Play from level 1 and get a point per level. Play level 3000, the same. You get the problem?
    I won't comment any longer, I don't want to get rude.

    @Xarly I only have 6 levels left. When I finish those, how do I get points?

    Hello! Looks like some of us here are from the Toffee thread. I got the squad this morning. Looks like the first milestone is 120 points. So far me and 1 other have been active and made 42 points. I think I got 12 points for ending an episode and 5 for 3 stars on a super hard level. The others were 1 or 2 for logging in and per star on finished levels. Curious to see what the other 3 players will do and if the rewards are any good. One player only has a photo but no name!

    Almost 120. Still, 3 active 2 not. Curious about the prize.


  • YoscaYosca Posts: 265 ✭✭✭✭
    Correction, just another active. Now the last one..

    We can’t.  I have just had this awful thing appear on my game and it’s impossible to score any points as the levels completed in BGH don’t count. I’m just going to ignore it and hope it goes away, it’s completely useless to those of us at the highest level.

    @Dirty_Nurse I don”t agree. When you get the new levels, you can score 15 times and close an episode. This twice because the squad lasts 14 days. The more stars you get, the higher the points are. I am also at the highest level, and have to wait until I get a new one on Friday.

    @Xarly, do you also get points if I have completed levels improved with the number of stars?
