Have you noticed a change in the level that you are playing?

Hello all, 

I just want to give you some information about this subject.

From time to time the game development teams will update or change a level, whether it be the number of moves or the orders, or even the game board itself. These changes are made based on testing and feedback.

Once updated, the levels are still passable of course it just means that if you are watching a 'tips & hints' video for example, you might see a different level to what you are currently playing. This is not a glitch or anything to worry about, it just means the level has been updated. 

These changes might be noticeable between different platforms as well. For example a level might change on Facebook but the new version won't appear on mobile instantly as it might need to wait for the game update to be available. Also as the release times are different for Android/iOS/Windows you might also notice a time difference here.

If you are regularly checking game videos for tips etc then I recommend searching by date order to make sure you are viewing most recent content. 

Kind regards, 

Johnny

I'm over this BS with changing the amount of moves.  It's a prick move by candy crush to make levels unbeatable unless you purchase boosters, which I never have and never will. this game is no longer fun to play.  Why create frustration in your loyal players just to sell boosters, I'd rather quit and after 2068 I am.  I don't know why I waste my time when I know I won't be able to clear the level.  FU Candy Crush Designers I've had it!!!

I agree, can't pass level 2089 because they are asking for 50,000 points in 45 seconds on an IPad but they want 40,000 on Windows! So frustrating and I am thinking very strongly about quitting after playing over 3 years! Candy Crush designers suck!

"These changes are made based on testing and feedback"... my foot. Find it hard to believe King have been inundated with appeals to make levels excruciatingly frustrating: "Please increase the score on level 2266 to 100k in 15 seconds. Oh yeah, may as well reduce the time as well I'm having such fun". NOT. Just have to wait for that algorithm to kick in with a magical "lucky" board. Try look at the comments on this page (and across the internet) - people are getting sick of this nonsense which is a blatant attempt to suck as much money out of users as possible. It will be zero from me, and anyone else with a bit of sense.

Except that level 2061 is totally unpassable with only 15 moves. Maybe 50 was too many but 15 is just plan stupid.Time to play other things.

well at 15 moves on 2069 I cant even get close to buy boosters and complete this level so I dont know who played to complete it in 15 but I know I cannot see me doing it I would buy boosters if I even got close to completing but everytime I cannot even get half the keys

Hi Diana. I'm currently on level 2070 and having the hardest time with it....Trust me, this will stress you out even more than 2069. I read your comment and decided to go back and try level 2069 again and I completed it on the first try...with no boosters at all...I'm not saying this to get you mad, but to let you know that you CAN do it....dont give up!

Why would they bother to put bombs with 25 moves on it when they expect you to get done in 15 moves?

Johnny,  I understand lowering some games; but when you go from 50 to 20 or 20 to 14(level 2064); you know the only way to complete a level is with boosters.  That is why we don't see any videos with the new moves except using boosters.  Why not throw in some fun and easier levels after we have struggled through so very hard ones.  As I have said before, the developers have taken the fun out of the game and that is why so many players are leaving.  Please get back to when the game was enjoyable and every level was passible without boosters.

Just like level 1036 in candy crush soda. All the videos show 36 moves. Even last week i had 30 moves only to get on this week to there being only 25 moves. This level is totally impassable with 25 moves. I have been stuck on this level for 3 weeks and i cant even come close to passing it. Yes....i complained about it and king gave me 50 gold bars to help but guess what.....i used all the gold bars and im still stuck with no where even close to clearing it in sight. Guess its time for me to stick with what i have been saying. I AM DONE WITH THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, Johnny, the development team needs to pay more attention. Level 2062 went from 50 moves to 20, and some people are saying 15. Really? I found it challenging enough at 50, and unfortunately didn't pass it in time to beat the change. It is so ridiculous that I was SURE it would be changed to something more reasonable this week. Nope. I cannot even fathom the number of boosters it would take to pass this level. I am not averse to using boosters, but not this time. Unless it gets changed, I'm done. That makes me sad, because I am a big fan of the game.

Thanks for the BS patronizing blanket answer, but you left out that you are changing the amount of moves to drastically lower so people will buy stuff!  Own up to what your doing and stop the deception.  You really must think we are all stupid.  Your latest (for me anyway) 2153---is what is stupid.  Since you went down from 50 to 27 moves, the closest I've gotten (with boosters mind you is 11 yet to clear.   I don't know why I expected any direct honest answer. This has been going on for a long time now.  :(

Tammy, couldn't agree with you more. I am also on 2153 and asked Johnny to show one video that finished it with 27 moves and no boosters. He couldn't do that; but showed a couple that finished using boosters. For a while the levels were fun; but not 2153.

you make it harder at first, then just sit seeing ppl buy the bootster. after 1-2 wk when you get a complain feedback & hit the sales tarket, that time you fix the level .... it happens over and over again.  especially in level 2000+  it is a nightmare. WTF

That's a lie !! 2163 is NOT passable now. You change them to make money, not because of feedback. Tweaking levels to make them playable is 1 thing, tweaking them to make them impossible without boosters is just greedy !! I'm tired of that shit too. Can't beat this one now, cuz of your feedback BS so guess I'm done with this game !!

level 2157 moves changed from 50 to 24 making impossible to pass. I locked the keys and bought 5 more moves and of course that was not enough to pass so they asked for 15 more bars for 5 more moves. You see where this is going; a good way to make money but they are going to loose lots of loyal players. I hate this game now. FU King.

I am also getting sick of your BS with reducing the amount of moves.  Really, level 2156 reduced from 50 to 16?  Obviously your reasoning for this has nothing to do with testing or reviewing these levels so don't give us your song and dance about why you are doing this because none of us are buying it.  It's all about the almighty dollar.  Shame on you!

This message is for King. As I read thru much of these notes, I get the sense that people are becoming disenchanted, which to me is alarming. I've said this before, I don't understand your approach anymore and that it's true, many of the people in my group have quit playing your game or play it very rarely. I, myself, have said that once I reach LVL 2000, that I would play until I no longer had the will to continue anymore, that still holds true and you've come close many times already, yet I've only have play to LVL 2072, which by the way is another typical boring board that is obvious that your trying to entice people into buying boosters, because you give absolutely zero chance to the point I quit the game after half the moves because it's so obvious I'm not going to get what I require to complete the LVL. Just saying....

For Candy Crush Saga

But what you did in Luscious Lane is too harsh. Feedback for easy levels should not change anything, but the too-hard ones you should nerf it, not buffing to be even harder like level 1609. 30-move version is already very difficult. Why you buffed to make it even harder? Releasing easy and enjoyable levels after several torturing ones will make as good feedback as in the past. I wonder you release levels and buff like this you will discontinue the game soon?

Ok, after thousands hours with candy Crush, I will get a lot or Free time. I leave for good this game at level 2062. I understand you test several levels in less but not 30!!!

I am not going to pay something to go on...

thank you for all this time playing.

bye

I see that we now have 25 moves for 2061.  I am not sure if that will be enough moves for us to pass without boosters; but at least, it is a better chance than with 15.   Thanks CC for adding moves.

Fellow CC'ers.  I did pass level 2061 with 25 moves; but I also used some boosters to finish it.  As I have mentioned before, save up those boosters because almost ever level since 2000 needed a booster to complete.  Go back to the levels that have Sugar Drops( ones with C's on them)  and start collecting those boosters.

Well Johnny, on level 2069 why would they bother to put bombs with 25 moves on them, if we only have 15 moves to complete the game.  Something is wrong with level 2069.  Please fix.

See? You ruin again in Swirly Steppes with buffing all levels in this episode. Is this your job to ruin your game? Now I hate your team. *U, the evil King!

King change it from difficult to impossible without boosters or a miracle to make $$. Hopefully they'll change it back. FYI, I've got this far without paying a dime, and I'm not going to start now. You know a level (e.g. 2162) is rubbish when it has to reshuffle after nearly every move. Boring, frustrating and annoying. Certainly not fun.

Bullcrap! Level 1485 Bubble Witch 2. YouTube shows that level played with 2 colours of bubbles. From 1 month ago. My level 1485 has 3 different bubble colours. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krf4VFvauIMI'd like an explanation for this that makes sense.

Level 2445 was made impossible. I realize it says super hard but when you added the bombs with only 6 moves to them how do you expect anyone to be successful.  I've lost more lives than I can count and boosters haven't helped either. I've gone through many of both! Not far to go from no bombs to bombs that go off in such little time!
