    I have 1 column with 2 checks, in another column someone for some reason selected use a hand switch and in another column for several days someone is supposed to make a color ball. I guess I will try to finish the first one if I come across a frosting level!

    I had one line with no nasties, one picked 4 stars, the other picked use the striped hammer one time, that was 3 days ago.  I'm stuck needing red candies on an ultra hard level with - you guessed it - no red candies.  When it resets tomorrow, I'm going to change to the 3rd column which is at least possible.

    Surely it's wrong that "team members" can do this?

    You can pick up the red candies on any level, so just do a lower one.

        Just what I was about to say. Just find a level with red candies.

    Didn't know that, I'll give it a go in the morning.  Thanks.

    Well I screwed up big time.  Last tile to tick is finish off a row is complete a hard level.  Intentionally saved a tick to use with the hard level I was on when I played it after getting help from the daily bonus booster.  So, get my bonus booster, manage to complete the level and then realize I forgot to tick the tile to work on it.  Grrrrr.  So not it’s up to one of my teammates try to find a different row to work on.

     So have I, but fortunately only on easier tiles such as make 2*cb/wrap. So finally Friday and we could finish the board with new levels. The next board had 2 rows without boosters/new levels. 2 tiles were chosen, but I suspected at least one was a blocker/parker, so I chose the tile common for the 2 rows. Unfortunately the other active player stayed with the first row, where the 3rd player is blocking the easy collect 140 orange. After 3 hours 0 orange.

      So now the player has made 98 of the 140 orange, but has stopped playing again. I just don't get it?! Why pick a tile, then not play at all for hours, then play one level and stop again, when it would take just 5 minutes to get those orange and complete a row? You can get those orange on any level, without even winning the level, it's sooo easy. You don't have to make any effort besides playing for a few minutes. 1-2 levels and it's done, no tactics or skill needed. But no.....

    It is this crappy mind game and strategizing that makes you insane playing Toffee.  On a new board I will sometimes choose a tile I won’t complete just to wait to see who picks a tile and whether they actually are working on it, so I can move if need be without wasting a tick.  But then you get the people who start but don’t finish.  Imthink

        I try to pick a tile that can be used both for the row others have chosen tiles in and for another I can switch to, if the others don't do anything and then wait to see, if I should continue their row or start another. I just completed the row started yesterday. All that frustration for the grand prize of a lolly and a one hour stripe :3

    That's about as good as they ever get. I feel lucky to get anything besides a wrapped candy with a timed booster.

    Does anyone know if Mr. Toffee is on the facebook app?
    Yes.  Can't seem to shake the bugger.
    That's odd because I joined facebook and started playing because I like Mr. Toffee even though it needs improvement but I haven't been offered Mr. Toffee.

    I could do a hard level to complete a row but someone chose it so is blocking me. 

    Just put a timer on blocks. If it isn't done in 4 hours release the block. It would solve a lot of problems.

    I am posting here the reply I made to CCS support, after they gave me no answer to my previous request to get rid of the new changes.  It is just more of the same but I thought possibly they would actually read my thoughts if I went directly through support. 

    Also I started playing again from level 1 on a different device and can see how they will simply replace all us dedicated old timers by sucking in the new players!  So you start slow with no boosters or special challenges.  You are then introduced to boosts one at a time and are given 3 free ones after each intro.  Then they bring MTF and Mr. (...) which pleases you cuz it's a way to earn extra boosts..... and the tasks are not nearly as difficult.  There are ways of getting around the few must use boosters to complete, so I was able to get around my non participating "teammates" and make the line by myself (over two days cuz of the 2 a day limit) which gives my loser partners a prize.  Now I start winning tickets for the Yeti's prize, which I originally assumed would be a prize as opposed to a purchase opportunity as it is.  So I get the eight tix and the same prize group appears, but guess what?  It is only 99 cents.  I am soooo excited to see all those boosts that for a buck.... (I'm ashamed to admit) I buy them.  Now for 2 hours I am the God of CCS and in a short time I get the offer again for a buck.  Yes, I bought them.  After I get to about level 100 though, the package is back to $9.99.   Now to be honest I know this isn't any accomplishment so it still isn't fun like the challenging game I used to play, but you can see how the next group of suckers will be born to replace all of us pissed off posting die hards.  I can see how the greedy bastards aren't listening to our continuing complaints and logical explanations of why they should return us our game.

    Anyway I'm either too stubborn or stupid to admit defeat so here's the letter I sent when support responded to me.  As Buffalo Springfield once said "For What It's Worth".

    I am writing once again to let you know how terribly disappointed I am in the changes you are making to the game.  I absolutely hate MTF.  1st I DO NOT want to be put on a team of players.  I have not one time felt that my group was an asset and at least 4 or 5 times have been in a group where 1 player took a square and then did nothing but block us from finishing a line.  I have won 3 times finally after I found a way to finish all 4 of the required tasks by myself!  That is no team, and if it was I would certainly expect better prizes (they are so small that I don’t even know why I participate).  I’m following in the community and cannot understand why you folks aren’t  listening.  The 2nd big point is that I feel very manipulated and would be required to purchase boosts to be able to make progress in the game any longer.  I used to work hard to complete tasks so I could win a few boosts, always coveted and saved until I was on a level I couldn’t possibly complete without them.  1 hour of a boost is meaningless in this case.  CCS was a great challenge of a game which I played faithfully.  I still check in now because I cannot help but believe you will listen to your fan base and give us back the game we all loved… but I do not really play anymore.  I’ve never seen such an outpour of folks that are wasting their time and energy trying to express to you how much we hate your changes.  Your apparent greed to increase boost purchases is shameful.  I did occasionally buy somethings when I was just in an impossible corner, but I will never have any fun playing if frequent purchases are the only way to move ahead.  It isn’t a game any more if I have to pay to win, and it certainly isn’t a fun game.  Please, please, please, won’t you folks listen.  We are amazingly dedicated and just want back the challenging game we had.  This WILL bite you in the (...) and hurt the company’s reputation in the long run.  Openly greedy is just ugly and you are taking the fun out.  That doesn’t even make you a game developer any more.

    And if you aren’t going to listen or change the current mess, just man up and say so.  At least you won’t continue to make fools out of the thousands of disgruntled fans I am hearing. Sincerely,    Andrea Wells
