Welcome to the Candy Crush Soda Saga Community!
Introduce yourself to the rest of the players by letting us know where in the world you are playing from.
Well I said I would never play candy crush or saga or whatever else was out there during those years. I came across candy soda and I was like no but I did and I absolutely couldn't quite for long enough my leg fell asleep. I got to level 20 and I'm better than I ever thought I would be. I'm still trying to get a handle on the concept of each level bc they are different. Idk how I got as far as I did and enjoyed it.
My thought on lives: the current implementation is fine for the limited lives.
Regarding the infinite lives: make infinite lives harder to get. Currently, they're really easy to get to the point where you can easily blitz through levels and pretty much turn the game into a joke difficulty wise with the Rainbow Streak.
Maybe make it so every 7th daily gets the infinite lives while the other 6 gets 2 random 15 minute boosters (ex Day 7 gets 30 min Colour Bomb and 30 min infinite lives, Day 8 gets 30 min Colouring Candy and 30 min Fish). This way players can't blitz through the game easily and actually has longer play times since they can no longer blitz through every day after 7. For the 2 hour and over variations, nerf them to an hour. That way, people can't overpower levels and potentially end up having to wait for more levels.
