New Feature: Soda Squad

    Completing an episode is worth 10 points.   
    My squad has four players who are active.  We have 93 points so far and 73 are mine.  I was able to make a nice run yesterday and build up some points.   Only the second time in 3 months I might add.  

    So we’ve learned a few things today.  Different teams get different prizes.  Hmmm.

    @Anne_Martin Play level 1 800 times and win the mother lode treasure chest!  Not a bad idea...😉

    It seems to me that the Soda Squad feature is designed for players on lower levels who can easily accrue many points. They will then presumably be put in teams together next time. Players on the higher levels who are struggling to pass levels at all without boosters from the Quests, will then be in teams together and have no chance of collecting enough points to win anything, however keen they are to participate.

    If players on higher levels had the Quest’s, maybe unlock at a certain level, this would even out the playing field and give them a chance to fully participate in this feature as well.

    okay, now we know the first level is worth nothing. No idea about the others.

    you know, the worst part is that it would work. You just need to pass a couple of regular levels to get enough lives. Something is wrong, the studio produced good features before. Now, they go from catastrophe to inanity...

    Seems like 💩 to me.

    I agree @Anne_Martin, the past features were great. Yes they were a challenge but definitely doable which made them fun. These new features just don’t seem to be hitting on much. Kinda like trying to put a square peg in a round hole, it doesn’t fit.

    If I wanted to do that, how would I GET to level 1?  I don't fancy scrolling back through 3000 levels!

    @Bricorn at the top you see a kind of gate on the right. Open it, than scroll down, much easier than scrolling through each level.

    One positive thing I can say about the soda squad is that everyone on my team is contributing. So it looks like they have done a better job of matching players that are actually playing.

    Not in my team. 3 active, including myself. 1 only logs in and 1 do nothing, still has 0 points.

    Thank you all for your feedback and for sharing with each other your knowledge as you play the feature for the first time (that's what Communities are about :smile:). I will now answer some of the points I have seen across your comments:
    That is a lot of work for 1 booster.  Since the other levels will be much more difficult to achieve  hopefully they are more than timed boosters. I wish timed boosters could be stored and used when you are ready like other boosters. Often if I get one I don't have time right then to use it all and it is wasted.

    Great and valuable insight, @LauraLMason. If you can submit this as an idea and (hopefully) get upvotes on it from the Community, it really helps us bring it on to the studio and prove the value of it. These things take time, effort and planning so, showing this is a great interest to the community is key in order for us to be able to push for it in your behalf.Yosca said:
    If I understand correctly, there are various rewards? My team and @Jami_Fagala won 30 minutes of fish. But your team @Anne_Martin won 30 minutes of striped candy?
    Indeed! This is what I mean with a great example of sharing and learning together. Regarding you providing all the points, @candysodacrusher , this should be fixed with placing you in a stronger team in future iterations of the Soda Squad.

    One positive thing I can say about the soda squad is that everyone on my team is contributing. So it looks like they have done a better job of matching players that are actually playing. 

    Happy to hear so! As mentioned above and previously, matching members should get better as we progress, as it will match you with players that contribute and are active, if you are as well.

    Hope that made sense! Thank you all for your feedback and please keep it coming :smile:.

    This idea is a total flop! I am the only one contributing... Pls remove this..

    Okay, so I just completed today’s episode and have the results.  I started at 69 points and ended at 137.  This means that from playing the new levels I got 68 points(one of which is just the daily login point) and missed only 8 possible stars which is well above my average looking at the recent episode tallies.  My “reward” for getting to 120 was 30 minutes of the coloring candy which I had already gotten via rainbow road and the chests on the map itself which will only serve to make one more run through BGH a little faster.  This amount of points is not nearly enough to get the required 800 in two weeks even *IF* the “teammates” contributed as much as I do.  I still have two “teammates” with a single point combined.

    @Xarly why does the studio insist on “team” play?  You mentioned above to write in the ideas forum and with enough upvotes maybe said idea would get implemented yet the MTF thread has 71 pages of negativity and still the Farce goes on.  “Team” play in a single player game makes no sense at all and is clearly an overwhelmingly unwanted feature.

    well, my squad reached the second chest. Luxury, you know: 1/2h of striped and 1/2h of fish. Hard to give less, no? 
    So far, totally useless.
    What a mess!
