Candy Crush Saga Level 2871

What an absolute joke. 5 lives gone in 3 minutes 59 seconds. Another pathetic timed level to start the newly released episode. For a person my age this level is impossible. I can't even get remotely close.

Seeing nobody in the games room is remotely interested in the problems faced with these levels by elderly and handicapped players, I think it is time I found another more suitable activity in which to invest my time and money.

Hi all,

Eugene!, really! Are you saying that 2871 is possible? 

How did you get past it? Those above are saying it's impossible! What are they doing wrong, any tips?

Helping them might get you past 2874?

Thanks.

It's a really bad joke when a timed level (above all, with very little time) starts with candies dropping in place. Who needs players when King designs levels that play itself? Brilliant idea!!! I'll guess they will make a lot of money without players.

I really think I'm done with this game!  That first level is the dumbest and most idiotic level.  To put a timed level as the first level in a new episode is insane!  I refuse to use boosters and I can't even clear the first couple of rows before that stupid timer goes off.  30 seconds ????   Really King.  I am going to report this to the King Admins!

I got a 2 hour unlimited play ( for free).

I play for 2 hours straight  over a hundred tries.

I never got close enough even to use boosters or time extensions.

I am now at Level 2881 and the this episode doesn't improve. The business model King/Activision have adopted of make as much money as you can as quick as possible will work in the short term, but when customers realise they are losing out and desert in droves. the shareholders will begin to question the poor decisions of management.

We have to realise the game designers and monitors only do what they are told. they have a job to keep !!!

Same here! I'm just about to quit after all this time. I hate the tensed up feeling of the timed levels. I hated them before and I hate them even more now!  I played Candy Crush to relax, this is not relaxing at all. There's absolutely no skills involved in this level just a stupid mad dash with no results.   I loved this game but I think it may be time to move on! Good luck everyone out there. Thanks for the good times CC. Makes me sad that you are driving your fans away ....

I tried this level a couple of times (twice with the full helmet) and then I quit. A couple of weeks ago King launched two episodes that, after a long, long time, were challenging, but quite enjoyable. And I thought: "Maybe they finally got it that they are driving people away." But no!!! From then on things got even worse than they had been. Remember the absolutely stupid episode with seven or eight timed levels where everybody bought extra-time and got nothing??? A game is supposed to be fun, not torture. Since yesterday I did not start another CC game. And I'm feeling already more relaxed. Thanks for finally make me give up, King!

PS: Just saw on Candy Crush Saga Wiki that King had the nerve to buff this level... how stupid are these guys? Everybody was already complaining and instead of making it easier they make it harder. Wow, just wow!!!

Well, hope dies last. See that there are more and more players passing it. Have tried for 2 days now, it becomes boring and frustrating. By the time the candies have dropped, the 30 seconds are up. Ridiculous

The thing that gets me with this level is that if I make progress and clear lots of candy, a cascade starts. And although it's great that the cascade is helping to clear some of the board, it ends up going on long enough to use all the remaining time, so I can't make any moves after a cascade. I don't see how I can possibly complete this level when the game itself uses up all the time.

I understand what you are saying because the odd time that I have gotten a cascade it did take control and then the time ran out.

They should not start counting down the time until the starting cascade is finished.  That's simply unfair to the player if the cascades go on for 20 seconds and you have like 10 seconds just to make a move.  If you have got a full 30-second for making moves, that should barely be enough to reach the +5 candies, then keep switching/destroying the +5 candies to keep you alive and you really don't have to bother about the jellies at all.  The cascades will take care of them given the four colours and an open board.   That's what I did to pass, on my like 50th try or what.  Good luck everyone.

wait till you get to 2874 - no way - I got through the first three with tons of lives - boosters and extra time on the first one -  ready to call it quits with this one (I don't spend money - I use stuff I save up from sugar drops)

Level 2871 is just stupid.  First off there is no warning that it's a timed level so first try was a f----ing joke.  More than 12 times today i had less than 10 seconds left after one move because of waiting on the stupid candies to finally stop.  These timed level are no fun and nothing but frustrating.  So for me i will never spend another nickel on this stupid company's product.  Congratulations King, you've finally drove me away from your company...

Agree with everyone (well everyone but Graham-H anyway)--posted about this myself.  I especially agree that it is rotten that we don't even get warning that it's a timed level. And Graham-H (moderator maybe?)---If you really read Eugene's post, you would realize how he was complaining about the ridiculous amount of boosters and/or extra time needed to barely finish this level.  And how in the world is "helping" other players going to get him to pass a later level?? Do you know something we don't know?

Yup, King is taking the piss again. 30 seconds to remove 70+ objects, so that's over 2 a second. Is that a reasonable expectation from a games supplier? No, they just want their customers to spend loads of money to 'win' an impossible, unrealistic challenge. Shame on them. I have yet to remove more than 30 before the time expires. On that basis 60-70 seconds is a more realistic target.

DONT BUY BOOSTERS. That's the reason they keep making these impossible levels. You think they care about making it easy if people are going to buy stuff anyway? All they care about is money. DONT buy boosters, DONT waste your time until they make the levels reasonable. That's the ONLY way to get their attention about how ridiculous their gameplay is.

Tony it totally shocked me because I cleared it without boosters!  Now that's a first for me.  But now I'm stuck on the second one.

I thought once I got through 2875 the gauntlet would be cleared. Then 2876 was just as impossible. The first 6 levels were the most ridiculous group I have ever seen on this game. Clearly no quality control or testing. So i uninstalled it and quit. Tired of this nonsense. It feels great! I highly recommend it.

I guess because our "feedback is so important" to King Care, they buffed every single level of this episode. I know that this was certainly not your decision to buff the levels, but it seems the "feedback" does not reach the game designers at all.
Cipo Ten months ago
Hi Cipo, Thank you for your comment. At times, Candy Crush Saga levels got changed in the past if data and player feedback showed us that a level was too hard indeed. So, I'd say please keep the feedback coming :-)
Tony Mc Ten months ago
There had been massive complaints about this level since it was launched. And, yes, King made a change within less then 24 hours... to make this level and all the others of this episode even more difficult to pass. You seem to be one of the few guys from King Care who really seems to care. So please don't take my comments personally.
Cipo Ten months ago
Tony, you're our only hope. Please ask them to change this miserable level.

3 players or more on this thread have already passed this level. I am convinced you are able to beat this one too HN!

I did this level after buying extra time and using boosters which is totally sickening to feel it is necessary to do so, the whole episode you feel like you’ve ‘got ‘ to start and finish with boosters. 

2882 is a joke, you need to cross your fingers and hope for a lucky cascade...13 moves to get 800 candies when there are only 25 candies on the board  and 2 second bombs dropping at the same time!! There is absolutely no skill needed in this game anymore...just lots and lots of boosters!

What makes it even worse: this level is identical with level 2838 which we had to pass just a couple of weeks ago. Except now these morons buffed it to make it even worse.

Agree with everyone else.  This level is impossible.  I'm lucky to get down to 42 left.  Agree that time should not start until initial cascade is finished.  I guess it doesn't matter if I finish this one as from what I read above the rest of the levels in this episodes also suck.  Tried using boosters the first time as I didn't realize it was a time level.  I NEVER use boosters on times levels.

Tony, I am seriously worried about having a heart attack playing this level. Please ask the development team to consider that some of your most loyal customers are older. I was so happy when they stopped making the timed levels. This level is the worst of all and it appears the next ones are just as horrible. I've been on it for weeks and find myself only playing once per day due to the futility and stress it adds to my life. Candy Crush was formerly my stress reliever! I'm going to be forced to quit after years of play.
