The Veteran and the Newbie
It’s been just about a year since I joined this community and made my first post. In that year, there have been a lot of changes to the game, some good, and some not so good.
About 4 months ago I got a new device and decided that rather than sync my game to my new device, I would start at the beginning and play the game as a new player would experience it. So, for the past 4 months I’ve been playing as a newbie on an iPad, and continuing the game on my iPhone as a veteran. For the most part, I have the same features and events on both devices and I haven’t had Kimmy’s Arcade or the new Super Lolly on either device. I try to spend about the same amount of time playing each device, to help the comparison. Granted, there wasn’t any learning curve when starting my new game, but as I’m upwards of level 1500 on the new device, I think any learning curve from a true newbie would be long gone. That said, in 4 months, I’ve completed just under 50% of the levels that it took me over 5 years to complete. And oh my, what a different experience it has been. I’m finding the game SIGNIFICANTLY easier for my newbie player, and more difficult for my veteran player. I’ll provide specifics in a separate post.
