    Question:

    Do you get here either or? Because I have Mr. Toffee but no BGH. Something clear for me, would be nice.

         I have all three: BGH, MTF and Soda Squad.

    Funny: Thanks for the answers. Only why can not get BGH?

    Same here, been playing since the beginning of soda, on levels over 3000 and only just got the soda squad, not that I’m missing much with the farce as well!

    Unfortunately, I do not quite understand it. Here should be changed a lot, all players get the same !!! I'm only about 909.

    If you don’t block a tile the row can complete. I always try to do my own thing, not relying on others and can complete in 2 days.
      Yes as long as you don't block, it's okay. Unfortunately my board today is one of those where every single row requires a use of a hand or striped lolly or passing a new level. So I can't complete a row by myself until Friday. So far the two other players are a no show. 
    you don't have to tick a tile, so today when I got a new board (a rare thing happened, one of my teammates played like I do and we did it in one day), I didn't tick any tiles on the new board though. I left it for my new teammates to see what they wanted to complete, or not, first.

    Off topic a little, I have always had BGH show up when expected but this last time level 5 had a very difficult candy string level that I could not finish. So, I wasn't able to get anymore lollipops and just burned my last 2 today!
      Yes the fifth level this weekend was "impossible" so I didn't even bother playing, once I had made the tiles for MTF. Now it's also one of the very difficult  ones, but not impossible. 
    This level wasn’t that bad, at least with the free 2 hour fish booster I had the one day.  I cleared it 5 times that day though admittedly three of the times I used a few hammers to get through.  The key is to clear the bottles on the second screen as quickly as possible; without the free booster this can be difficult. 

    I have BGH every day and have for over a year now, you guys don’t?  
    I only have bgh Saturday and Sunday. After 10 PM Sunday, it goes poof. Even if I am playing it!

     I was delighted today when the other two players took a pass one level tile and a pass 1 bubble level tile. I then did the other two, a hard level and 15 stripes. I thought we would have a new board really fast.

    They have been sitting on those tiles all day. Obviously they haven't played all day. Now I have to do three more tiles to advance, so two days. 

    They are such easy tiles it makes no sense.

    Okay so I finished that board and started a new one. I decided this time I will do as has been recommended in this thread. I waited to see what the others would take. The last column is obviously the easiest.

    Fish-------Wrap-------S hammer----yellow

    Frost------CB/S-------CC--------------Bubble

    Hand------S/Fish-----S/Wx2---------Level

    Yellow----Hard------CB/W-----------3 Stars

     Almost immediately Cow took the Coloring Candy tile. (sigh) I check again in a bit and they completed it! Yay! But I still don't get why they chose such a difficult tile. I keep checking and Cow took Stripe/Wrap x 2! WHY I don't want to do the stripe hammer square. I wait to see if they complete it and to see if Onion will do anything. Nope. Neither happens, and my next level is Bubble so I complete that tile. Cow is still sitting on S/Wx2. Onion is still not playing. 

    CC and Bubble are complete. S/Wx2 is being sat on. 

    My next level is Frosting. So now what do I do?  
    I could do Frosting, and do CB/S tomorrow if Onion doesn't do it. 
    I'm tempted to do Level because then tomorrow I could do Yellow and 3 stars. Whether I have to do one tile or two tomorrow makes no difference, but if I get blocked then I would need Frosting and it could take awhile to get it.  

    So, what does everyone think? What would you do?

    I wouldn’t play it at all.  It’s rather obvious that the “teammates” are not real players playing in real time with you.  If I ever get stuck with this Farce I’m not going to waste my time even clicking on it.  The only way that the feature will be removed is if you poor players that got stuck with it stop using it.

      A weird thing just happened. I got a new board and had just checked all the tiles before choosing one. Two rows I could do by myself so I took the tile shared by the two rows. It was cb/stripe or maybe cb/fish. Then when I was getting ready to play I noticed in the top right corner, that it said 120 cyan instead?? Went back to the board and it was not the same as before. Also other teammates. And now no rows I can do myself instead of two >:)

    I don't want it removed. I enjoy it when other players use it as intended. I suspect that experienced players are deliberately blocking those of us who do like using it. 

    Posting strategy is more fun than playing. Here is my new board. 

    CB/Fish,,,,,,,,,Bubble,,,,,,,,,15 Wrap,,,,,,,CC

    Wrap/Fish,,,,,Hand,,,,,,,,,,,,20 Stripe,,,,,,120 Red

    CB/Stripe,,,,,,,Frost,,,,,,,,,,,130 Orange,,,5 stars

    L Hammer….Stripe/Fish,,,,,,,,,,,Level,,,,,,,100 Green

    I decided to take 130 orange as it is the intersection between a fairly easy row and an easy column. Minutes later Photo takes 15 Wrap. I think looking good. Not. They sat on it all day. That seems deliberate to me. I'm going to wait until very late to select my next tile. My daily reset is at 4AM so I can't do it at the last minute. 

    It's nice that they are planning changes but a very quick fix would be to just put a timer on the tiles. 4 hours. If not done you have to re-select.

    Just when I start thinking that Mr. Toffee isn’t so bad, thanks to a board with 2 cooperative teammates, followed by one I did myself, I get tossed back to reality with the next group.

    Thanks for your insightful comments on the strategy @TheaPierrot!

    They really help us here in the Soda studio. I also want to confirm once more that the information @Dirty_Nurse gave you is not true - all players are real players (hence why balancing it is difficult, because many behaviours are unpredictable).

    As you mention, or @nothappyjan as well, the experience with Mr. Toffee's Fair when the team is a right one can be very fun. That's where the team is heading towards and that's what we are currently working on (finding ways to guarantee that the experience is a good one).

    Mr. Toffee's Fair is an optional event. If it's not appealing to some of you, you can just choose not to play it (and, as mentioned above, just don't select a tile and you won't be hurting your team). In any case, please respect that it is fun to others and let people play the way they wish (the same way as they do not interfering with your decision of playing the feature or not).

    I want to also use the time to reinforce that an optimisation of the feature is being built and that, if it all goes well, we will be able to see it live in some weeks.

    Cheers,
    Xarly
