Who changed the fish behavior?

DreamDancerDreamDancer Posts: 91 ✭✭✭
Fish used to be horrible creatures to play with before, but now they are despicable to watch in action.

Case in point, on one level, I had ONE ice to clear to finish the level.
I got a fish next to a popcorn ball.
I did the matchup and got myself a LOT of fish, I would say that at this point, easily 1/4 of the board was the same color as the fish.
A board is 9x9 for a total of 81 squares so I got about at least 20 fish.

NOT ONE OF THEM TARGETED THE LAST REMAINING ICE LIKE THEY WAS DOING THE WHOLE REST OF THE ROUND.

Someone seriously messing with us on this.

    I completely agree. The Fish seem to land deliberately on the wrong tile. It's so frustrating.!!

    Hi @DreamDancer and @Hooky, are those fish misbehaving again?  I haven't seen complaints lately about the fish but maybe it's something new starting.  I will keep my eyes open here in the next few days to see if others complain about this.  I gave up on the fish a long time ago because of what you are saying!  If I need one tile to clear I just use the lollipop.

    Candy Crush Jelly fish suffer the same inane behavior.
    Level 950.
    Fish would target X, unless there was no X, in which case it would go after Y, unless going after Y would deliver a Monkling, which case the fish would go after an arbitrary Z.

    In My Humble Opinion: fish should NEVER hit a Coloring Candy or Color Bomb. Mine always do this to me and it sabotages the entire board. I have also noticed they don't go for the intended targets, especially if there is licorice on the board. For example: if I have a candy blocking the path to the candy string for a soda bear, it will always hit a licorice off to the side rather then hit the offending candy.

    Oh, the fish are terrible! I have fallen victim to the very same scenarios you all described here. :angry: This feature needs to be improved!

    fish have patterns, they like licorice best, bit the way they aim to burst my color bomb is new.

    Also, if you are doing a jam level it is best to combine them first without jam to hit ice and other blockers. Otherwise once they are covered with jam they will not aim for those areas again until the rest of the uncovered tiles are filled. Even so, they may go for licorice first so it is best to keep it at a minimum.

    I fully agree with the above. Lately they changed the fish behavior intentionally!! Despite what Elsa says. Each day they are deliberately changing the game in such a way that it becomes impossible to win without boosters!! AND THEY DO NOT EVEN HIDE IT!!!!! After 3 moves you already see and know, you are not gonna win again. You play now days and days (with the daily booster) to win a level. It is nerf wracking, tedious, irritating and a nuisance! Candy Crush saga is already on the same changes. This was in the past easier to play (and more fun) but nowadays it is the same. Example: I am on level 1726 and you have 20 moves to get the bears up. There is only licorice and on top 2 Wheels with 10 blockers each! Please King explain to me how you are gonna win without boosters. This is not possible! You need twice double fish to beat it. So without boosters impossible. And there are so many levels like this now. Luckily I never paid anything to King and I never will. Whatever difficulties they build in the future. I just laugh and keep playing. But this behavior from King is coming close to fraud in my humble opinion. They target people that are vulnerable and cannot resist buying boosters. Shame on you King for both this scheme and changing the game so that free players will stop playing eventually.

    I've virtually given up playing.!! I've noticed you only have 1 block to lose or colour in..!! The game almost cheats so you lose.!! Then you get a pop up wanting you to buy more lives or bonuses...

    I just play not to lose the daily bonus, except if I'm on a winning streak. No boosters left, no fun either. The game, and all the ones from Activision is now so rigged it is a catastrophe. Sad...

    Yes, I’ve almost reached the point of stopping playing. No more gold or boosters left. You need a booster for each level to progress. Fish that don't do what they should do. This game is getting worse and worse.

    I don't understand. Some of the bugs remind me of comments I read in video games magazines years ago. They were called beginners' mistakes. Ir was said the big studios buying the games would correct them. But others, like taking the quest away are obviously intentional. It feels as if there was a will to damage the game from the inside.

    The other day, I was playing a Friends level.
    There was only one piece of ice left over an animal.
    I had 5 moves left.
    I had a fish.
    I triggered said fish.
    Said fish swam off to the far corner and killed a innocent candy just doing nothing.
    O.o
    So disgusted I shut my tablet down right then and there.

    I know the feeling mate, King doesn't understand how frustrating it is.!! They are just interested in making Revenue out of you.!!
