    Well here I am again posting about the more than disappointing changes the developers made to CC Soda. I wrote a rash of letters and comments back when the changes were first made and I really believed that so many players were complaining that King would listen and put the game we all loved back in play. Then it became obvious that the changes were all about forcing more booster purchases, called you guys greedy crooks and swore I'd stop playing.  Never found a replacement that was challenging enough (PLEASE LET ME KNOW if any of you out there have found one!!!) so I started playing again from level one.  The inane  Mr Toffee can't be real cuz so many stupid teammates can't exist.  They take a tile and then never play, just block others, or they go to a tile not in line with the others.  And the final prizes suck.  Most prizes now seem to be a boost with a limited time use, so you can only use them to keep playing NOW.  So today I'm playing cuz I wanna win hammers from bubblegum before it ends and then I use up the hammers I have to pass level 5. I  get really frustrated and end up BUYING $ 4 to get 10 goldbars… but at least I get the extra boosts only good for an hour.  Gotta keep playing to make the most of them and now I just recognized another scam to keep us from winning as much as we originally could.  I start a new level with all the boosts but realize they only show up once in the start.  Used to be if you used a boost it would show up more frequently throughout the game.  NO MORE THOUGH, just like no more of the other features you greedy SOBs have taken away from your devoted players.  I realize and admit I am the stupid one who kept on playing and gave you four more of my hard earned dollars.  But I am just a stupid slob who wanted to have fun playing a game, at least I am not a greedy, manipulative, there is never enough profit company that couldn't be satisfied by the phenomenal success King had already achieved.  Shame on you.

    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. 
    Been there, done that.....
     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. 
    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.  Maybe that still gets them a booster when the board is completed,,who knows.

    Oh my... It seems that many players have problem with that feature. Thanks goodness that in my own case, I have good teammates and we work all together so to complete those tasks. I love to choose the easy ones like collecting red or orange candies and let the hardest ones to my teammates which they have boosters and they are many levels further than me.

    Oh, seems that my rant appeared twice - apologies. And have no idea how you delete your own posts ;-)

    I have always said this game is utter garbage - and the past week just helps to confirm it. I have been stuck on the same MTF for five days, and nobody else has even gone for a square. I have no boosters, and so picked up two easy squares before going for "pass 2 levels". And here is the joke - a REGULAR level with masses of blockers, no boosters to help, and all played in four 4x4 boxes, so no chance of making any colour bombs etc....and I am STILL stuck on it after 8 days. AND this included a reward (I say "reward", it is actually a punishment to play for another hour) of an hour's unlimited lives, meaning I could reset and try again if not making enough progress early on. A REGULAR level.The ONLY way to succeed is sit and hope a ton of cascades get triggered - in the 4x4 squares where you have hardly any choice of moves as the playing field is so restricted. And King call this fun? You honestly call this entertainment? Sitting, waiting for the game to simply let you pass? It is skill-less, monotonous, tedious garbage. 

    As I said earlier, King needs to allocate resources to those parts of the game that actually matter - ie. finding a developer or two who know what they're doing, who have a bit of imagination, who can make it fun and a pleasure to play, instead of a totally mindless drudge, a mind-numbingly boring chore. Seriously, it is more fun sitting in the garden watching the grass grow.

    It is all down to basics. People play for entertainment, not for frustration, stress and utter boredom. It doesn't matter what crappy sideshows you introduce to a game, if the underlying theme of the game is sheer unadulterated tedium. 

    One thing is for sure - it doesn't matter how hard you try, you cannot polish a turd.

    I've had a series of bad "teams", currently there's one row that should be easy, but a blocker picked "use a hand" and is sitting there.  Why would you pick that when the other 3 tiles are done (one by him admittedly) and just sit there?

    aniwells. I'm playing Clockmaker. I don't like it as much as CCS, but at least it awards bonuses for winning, and collecting things. At the moment I have lives for ever, and lots of bonuses I can use.  And I wonder how long this post will last before it gets taken down?

    After all the complaining I’ve done about Mr. Toffee, it is only fair that I say something positive.  It seems as if it is finally starting to work the way it was supposed to.  The last two weeks I have been able to complete a board either with another player or by myself either every day or every other day.  I think some of the changes have really helped, like being able to see if a player is making progress.  It seems like the tasks on the boards are more fair—fewer tiles asking one to use a booster.  I still miss the Quests, but thanks mostly to Mr. Toffee I have accumulated quite a cache of wrapped candies.  And I have finally found a good use for them by using them on the tiles that require you to match them with another candy.  😉

       No improvements here. Still lots of tiles with hands or striped lollies. I just started a new board. No rows without new levels or use of boosters. I picked the row with a lolly, but so did another player, so if thats a blocker/parker, I'm in trouble. Yesterday I finished a board by myself. I had to wait days to finish it, because I had to wait for new levels.

       I ended up giving up on the other player, but just as I had ticked a tile in another row, the other player made one of the two wrap/fish. Typical! Well at least I'll be able to finish the board before Friday, if he/she makes the other wrap/fish.

    Candy Charming is a good replacement. Pretty challenging and lots of boosters. Posted this at 2:00 PM. We'll see how long it stays up.

    I will probably come off a bit jaded here as someone who still has the quests...but again, remind me as to why you all still willingly engage in the Farce if it brings nothing but annoyance?  All you’re doing is adding “positive” data to this joke of a feature...

    What is Candy Charming? I'm a bit loathe to start playing another King game. Especially since I had to delete Jelly Crush.
