Batula’s Key - Treasure Goblin - New feature being tested!

Had a new feature pop up tonight.  After completing a level I got a key to a chest which was located three (I think) levels down the road.  I had (again I think) an hour and a half to get to that level to open the chest.  Made it and got 2 hours of lives, a hand switch, and 30 minutes of wrapped candy.  Also noticed that the old chests that used to be along the road are gone.  

Not it sure what I think about this.  The hand switch is awesome, the lives would be great , but I’m played out for tonight, and can someone please tell me why they keep giving us wrapped candy?

Anyone else see this yet?

    I saw it, it’s quite clever, the gullible amongst us will happily buy boosters, as time ticks down, to ensure they don’t miss out on, errrr, free boosters.

    Hey, guys!
    I just updated my Soda Saga app yesterday and got this new feature as well. I haven't had a chance to claim the key yet, but I have to say I'm not very happy that it has replaced my gift boxes.
    What happens once you claim the first key? Does another key pop up further down the map or is it a once a day thing? The gift boxes awarded you with a different booster each time, so I am curious how this new feature works in comparison.

    Hi guys 😃 @BeckyBubblegum @Elsa @Pickles123 @candysodacrusher

    I see you've discovered the Treasure Goblin 🤗 This is a new feature wich is currently being tested so it's not available for all players just yet, lucky you cuz I did not get it 😔

    Anyway, while you have this feature, you will not get the normal gift boxes as before so any feedback you may have on this, I will make sure it gets passed on to the Studio.

    Farm Heroes Saga - The studio is hunting for feedback, share yours here
    Don't miss out on Gold Bars here

    For me, it appears that it can only be played once a day.  Can we get someone  to  officially state the rules of how often this can be played? I do kind of like it though because it's an individual challenge, not a dumb team of strangers. I also like that both times I've played,  one of the gifts I received was non-timed. Yesterday a hand switch was included and today 2 (!) striped hammers.

    @Elsa, I noticed when I logged in yesterday (the day after I received the new feature) I had to wait about a half hour or so before the prompt to find the special key appeared on my game screen. Perhaps you were not logged in long enough so you missed the prompt?
    @QueenB, well I haven't been fortunate enough to progress enough levels in a day to claim a key yet, but when I do I'll let you all know my opinion. :)

    You are right @BeckyBubblegum!   I only stay in the game to play 3 or 4 times and if I can't get close to clearing the level I leave the game.  Today I'll stay there longer.   Thanks for letting me know this.

    After collecting the key the first time I saw it, haven’t had any sign of it since.

    I dont have this yet but it sounds a bit like Dachs and the mystery chest in Friends! I did not get a new Soda Squad when mine expired a few days ago. Hopefully it is being scrapped or improvements being made if not.

    I don't have the feature, but if they remove the Chests then I hope you get more than one key a day. Chests would obviously be better.

    I managed to pass the level I was stuck on today and reached my first candy key. I got 2 hours of unlimited lives, 30 minutes of a color bomb and 1 switch hand. Upon receiving that reward I did not get a prompt to search for another key, so it appears that you only get 1 chance a day to unlock a chest.
    Overall, the reward was really nice, but I couldn't make good use of the 2 hour life booster because I ran out of my color bomb booster too soon. If I had had the chance to grab another key and unlock a second chest I could have continued on.

    Bring back gift boxes its the only reason I still play this game

    Well I saw my second key today.  I think it must activate after a certain number of levels have been completed.  I wasn’t able to open the chest and the key would disappear for a bit and then reappear with a new time limit.  I am NOT liking the shortened time limits in comparison to the old chests and I’m not terribly fond of the randomness with which the key appears and disappears.  If the goal of these redesigned features is to make them easier for players to understand, this isn’t accomplishing that.

    I was really upset when they took away my daily quests. If they take away my boxes too I don't know if I'll be able to play anymore 😟 I feel like Treasure Goblin should be a bonus, not a replacement. Perhaps if you keep your Rainbow Bow for several levels.
