Gold Pins

Just wondering why the gold pins disappear and then reappear in my game. Sometimes the ones from previous levels show, and then they disappear for a while, and eventually come back.

    Oh, don’t worry about those, they’re useless and have no bearing on anything. You’ll notice gameplay is the same regardless of whether they are there or not, and in fact they serve no purpose at all that I have seen. Weird that they exist at all when they don’t grant rewards to the player.

    Yes, they aren’t worth anything, however I have been playing the game on two different platforms—my old game that I have played since “day one” and my new game that I’ve been playing for about 6 months. So I’ve been doing some comparisons between the two. Comparing the gold pins I earn in each episode is one of the things I’ve been looking at. It’s been interesting. In my new game I’m “almost” caught up to where I was a year ago in my old game. Basically this is my own personal experiment to look at the extent to which the new features/events have changed the game.

    Hello and welcome to this community


    Since I have to translate, I don't quite understand what the gold needles are supposed to be. Can you please explain it to me in more detail or take a picture?


    Then I could help you better. thank you

    When you pass a level on the first try the map shows that level in gold. I passed level 3523 on the first try, but not level 3522.

    Hello and welcome to this community


    Thanks for the photo. You mean the golden crown - golden level. Yes, if you can do it at once, they will turn golden. Otherwise not. If they are always away and then reappear, it's not that bad. You can ignore that. But I still want to ask you. That you update your game to the latest version and clear the cache and restart. Then problems could be avoided.


    Do that every now and then. Please...

    Thank you for the suggestion. I do keep the game on both devices up to date and this has only happened in one of the games. Whenever it has happened, the gold pins show up on their own within a day or so. It’s only the gold pins I’ve earned on prior visits to the game that disappear. If I pass I new level on the first try, it will show up in gold. Not a big deal, but since it was only happening in the one game, I was thinking that it might be something the studio was experimenting with.

    Hi!


    Can that be because you have an older device? Then it could happen. Please keep up to date and clear the cache. This is important!!

    Nope. It’s a new iPad purchased in November.

    Oh, so you’re comparing sheer luck between two different installations of the game? What an odd thing to track. Success in this game is measured solely upon the placement of the starting boosters and the player’s ability to accrue hammers in BGH which has just been removed apparently. I still have the daily quests and as such have a huge advantage over players that have been burdened by the farce, I’m assuming your original account also has this? Otherwise, what’s the point of comparing games that have the same features...

  • candysodacrushercandysodacrusher Posts: 235 Level 3

    One might say that being safer at home for the past two months has caused one to do some odd things... 😉

    Comparing sheer luck might be one way to put it, but I also happen to think that there’s at least some skill involved, along with, for lack of a better way to put it, how kind the algorithms are to the player.

    I have expressed in other posts my thoughts that the changes in the game have made the game easier for new players and more difficult for veteran players. I realized I had a chance to test my theory when I acquired a new device. So, I now have two games to play. The new game is MUCH easier than it was the first time around. It has taken me only 6 months to finish around 70% of what it took five years to do, and that’s dividing my playing time between two games.

    At this point, the only difference in the features is that I have Kimmy’s Arcade in the new game, but not the old game.

  • Dirty_NurseDirty_Nurse Posts: 555 Level 5

    I can barely stomach playing the new levels once anymore let alone twice, are you still on lower levels? There’s very little skill involved anymore as the new levels are just overloaded with blockers, you basically need to have a big combo right off the bat to stand a chance. Now that BGH is gone I’m not playing at all. I was never subject to the arcade so I don’t know what that’s all about but if one account you had played since the early days, without the boosters that the rainbow thing gives you, of course that would take you longer not to mention having to wait a week for 15 new levels whereas now they’re all out. I can think of hundreds of better things to do than play this game especially while at home!

  • candysodacrushercandysodacrusher Posts: 235 Level 3

    Not sure what you consider “lower levels” but I am in the mid 3000’s in my original game and around 2500 in the new game. Actually, I probably spend less time playing the two games than I did when I just had the one. A big part of that has to do with not having the quests which I used to do daily, and when the timed boosters run out, I generally quit.

    Hello everyone!

    @Dirty_Nurse it's ok if you don't to play anymore. But do not judge other players for doing so. Some of them find the game fun and helps them go through the day.

    Have y'all a Sodalicious day 🤗

    I’m not judging the above player for playing at all if you bothered to read my commentary - I was just wondering why they were spending presumably large amounts of time comparing similar installations of the game and therefore in reality just comparing the effects of luck on both games. I’ve seen this individual from time to time commenting on other posts here and they always make good contributions to said topics.

    I must say, @candysodacrusher, if the quests were removed from my game and replaced with the “team” crap I’d abandon this game just like I did when they changed the rules of vanilla CCS back in December. As for the level range you mention they’re not too terribly low - I think they fall in the range of being nearly impossible to complete without extreme luck and/or a massive initial combo thanks to the starting booster placement. Currently without BGH to replenish the hammer supply the game is unplayable so I’ll wait for that to come back(though I’d wager it will have been tweaked so as to grant less rewards) before I continue.

  • candysodacrushercandysodacrusher Posts: 235 Level 3

    Even though usually I only see BGH on weekends, not having it has, as of today, depleted my lollipop hammers in both games. Also, after an honestly good series of teammates in my least favorite event (the oft discussed Mr. Toffee) I have been stuck with less than admirable teammates for the past two weeks and as a result my striped lollipops have also been depleted. You can imagine how thrilled I was when one of my teammates finally completed collecting 140 red candies and I was rewarded with...a wrapped candy and a somewhat more valuable timed booster.

    That said, I still managed to pass a couple of levels today with my daily bonus and the help of a very few ads. They also seem to be offered up less frequently than they used to be.

    As critical as I have been of the changes to the game over the past year, I also have to admit that the game is more “playable” than it was prior to the changes. The path to getting to that point was pretty rocky though. As I’m playing my new game I’m finding that I’m not getting stuck on levels for days at a time as happened the first time around.

    Not sure whether that’s because the levels have been tweaked or if the variety of options to win boosters makes up the difference.

    And, I’m also finding the new teams more helpful than the old Soda Squads were. I know you aren’t a fan of the team events, but a free booster is a free booster and I’ll take it anyway I can get it.
