So, you remove quests for everyone, slowing their game progression, and then roll Mr Toffee out to a small test group. Sounds more like an experiment to me, since Mr Toffee was announced well over a month ago.
Yeah, it was rolled out for testing. Testing to see if there is a drop in player engagement/numbers among those who don't have it available. Testing to see if there is an uptick in in-game spends among players with no quests available. Testing to see how many complaints it generated. If it has a small negative impact and/or generates more revenue, some of us may be in for a long wait.
The game is free-to-play and King needs to make its money somehow. I'm fine with that, just don't talk to us like we're idiots. More than a month to "test" an update for a simple match-3 game. Right. Guess it's time for me to move on to one of the other bazillion and 1 free time wasters out there.
