Featured Answer

Hi everyone,

As Elsa mentioned, there has been some changes made: You can no longer keep the win if you exit the game.

Our Game Studios are constantly adapting our games by introducing and testing new features, gameplay or concepts.

Before any change is implemented a randomly chosen group of players is selected to trial the feature, and based upon how the change is viewed we then decide whether the change is one we want to adopt or not.

I understand that you may not appreciate this change, and rest assured that I have passed your feedback onto the Developers.

Thank you all for the feedback!

I hope you continue to enjoy our games. Happy Crushing :)

Mia

I have been playing candy crush for 4 years and spent money on boosters. I have put up with all the reduced moves and the increasing difficulty of levels. This change though is a step too far and has ruined the game - no chance of passing near impossible levels. I will check from time to time to see if the reset has been restored, otherwise it is the end of candy crush for me.

I am experiencing this problem also. I've been playing for years but not being able to reset the board makes the game uninteresting and frustrating. After 3319 levels I guess it's time to quit.

So it isn’t just me experiencing this nonsense?  Started for me last night.  Didn’t realize it was happening until I saw I had no lives left.  Also discovered on the next set of lives when I figured out it was taking a life every time that if you have boosters selected at the beginning of a board that you will lose them as well as losing a life.  This REALLY sucks.  If this is an attempt to try to force us into purchasing boosters then they are sorely mistaken.  I was already getting fed up with this game...if this is intentional and how it’s going no to be from now on then candy crush will be losing yet another player.  I’ve been playing for several years now, and make no mistake...I can easily find another game I can play.  I don’t need this frustration anymore.

King makes $4 million dollars per day. Just saw it on the news last week. I buy boosters. Now the game is a chore and not nearly as fun. Please King, put the ability to back out without losing the SD or Mort’s helmet back. Listen to your customers.

Actually guys, I am going to change my previous answer to this.  I don't know if the studio made a change or if it is a glitch.  I can tell you that I am gathering all these messages and will be forwarding them to the studio on Monday to find out if it is a glitch or a change.

Please do Elsa. On most levels now you cannot pass without getting 2 colour bombs side by side etc and that has now become an impossibility..

I've had this problem for 3 weeks now. I don't feel like playing anymore because of this glitch/change. I'm at level 3487 and it's nearly impossible to do higher levels without being able to reset the board before first move. I sure hope you will have good news!

This is ridiculous! Started a level and pushed play before I realized I had a booster checked that I didnt want to use! Couldn't back out and uncheck so lost that booster when I didnt need to! I will not be playing as often or as long nor will I be purchasing any more coins until this is fixed! Its impossible to beat some of these levels without a good start!

I'm with you on this. The levels are ridiculously difficult and without the ability to back out and try for a better chance with your boosters it's not worth the frustration.   I've been playing for many years but it may be time to stop. I play candy crush soda too and that one never allowed you to back out but knowing I could jump over to candy crush and do that it made it worth while.  I guess it's time to try another game. My son suggested Alto,  a skiing game he says is loads of fun .

I've had this problem for 3 weeks now. Worst change ever made by CC in my book. I made two upgrades since the first occurence and nothing changed. I'm not even mad anymore, just more and more disinterested in the game.

I wholeheartedly agree with the above sentiments. It's very disappointing that the creators of Candy Crush do not seem to care about and respect their most loyal players. I hope they see sense and change it back. Also what about the 'full' piggy bank at 30 rather than 60 costing exactly the same - very greedy I think.

I used to treat myself weekly to the Piggy Bank when it was 60.It's not worth it now. I'm slowly losing interest in CCS playing less every day for 2 weeks now.Some days I only log in to get the free spin & daily bonus.

Bad move. As if they haven’t done enough to alienate their players.

King makes so much $$$ off this game they don’t need to respect their players anymore. 

There will always be those who are willing to play their game & spend the money. Those of us who speak out are just tiny little jelly-eating fish in the sea who don’t matter.

Ok guys, this is what I found out.  It's in a testing phase so players were randomly chosen to test out.  Lucky all of us being the testers!  Hey, if the test fails then maybe they will have to get rid of it right?

Kind of reminds me of photobucket’s big change a while back where they alienated the majority of the people who used their services and ended up losing a ton of people. This isn’t a very good business decision on the behalf of King.
Eric Two months ago

You can not write a comment. Either you must sign in or the commenting is closed.

So they randomly picked people to test this great new feature on?  What in the world are they possibly testing?  To see if we’ll waste money on boosters now?  If this is their intention I do not see it working out so well.  Who is going to pay money for boosters that have a very high probability of not helping them at all?  The majority of times that I reset a board is so I can get boosters in the proper spot (because some of the higher level boards are almost impossible without doing so).  If they take that away I can tell you one thing that is certain...I will absolutely NOT be buying boosters when I know they will likely be wasted.  And what I WILL be doing is moving onto another game.  I won’t say which one that I’ve started playing since this weekend but I’ve mostly moved on already.  When King decides to get rid of this I might come back, or I might not.  Who knows, but I do know that I’m enjoying the other game that I’ve started quite a bit.  It’ll quickly get to the point that I don’t care what King does because I’m not really missing Candy Crush in the first place.

Level 3670, playing 5 years, this update will definitely cause me to quit if not reversed.  Shameless, blatant money grab.  The game is simply out of balance at the highest levels without the ability to restart without losing lives/boosters.

Well, it’s now been two weeks since this abomination of a test started and I’ve finally had enough.  I haven’t played more than one level since then and have no intention to keep logging in anymore to see if this is still in effect.  I just verified one last time that it is and have now deleted the game from all my devices.  I’ve been playing for around four years now and you guys have pushed me away by this horrible idea.  I’m not the first long time player that you guys have lost and I can just about guarantee that I won’t be the last.  All in the name of greed...good job, King.

I may not have yet quit the game, but I have stopped spending money to buy extra lives etc because they can no longer effectively assist me pass levels. I imagine soon as I stop progressing I will lose interest. Waiting for the right board setting is part of the enjoyment and challenge in playing the game.

As King does not react on that, I'm looking for an equivalent game to CC (not by King obviously as they are changing rules without respecting their users.. and their decision-makers/developers seem not to be users themselves, or may be under-skilled). Any idea?

I uninstalled it too the other day. I’m furious about this - none of my friends have it. Why should we be penalised? My sister never buys boosters and isn’t affected: l have over the six years l’ve been playing, and l am rewarded for my loyalty like this?

I just reinstalled it to see if it was still happening. It is, so l will be uninstalling again.

When l reinstalled the game it took me back to the very beginning. l wasn’t signed in, so obviously couldn’t access the level l’d actually got to, but l could quit a game without losing a life. When l signed back in, l couldn’t. Deleted it straightaway again.

I have experienced this too. King should revert this ASAP along with some buffed levels or else you won't see me playing CCS normally. Because you're forced now to win the level in order to keep the life. Very big garbage stuff are they.

This us a horrible new development, makes the boosters almost useless.  But what is even more frustrating is that it doesn't impact everyone.  My friends are still able to reset their games while I am crippled by this new change.  Time to look for a new game!

I got this feature in my alternative account. I completely oppose this. As a result, I don't think this test will ever be passed.King Will lose players if it makes the change such that you lose a life even if you didn't make a move. It is a horrible idea, as proven by numerous other users.

Why don’t you at least notify the “random” group that you are experimenting new changes with?  After years of playing, I may delete the app if this goes into effect.  It’s difficult to pass some levels without the ability to reset a bad board.

I agree with everything others have written about the inability to reset levels. If we're test subjects, then please read all the responses which are negative and revert to the way it was before when we could save the boosters that we earn (Space Dash, Magic Helmet) and reset boards so that we can take advantage of the combo pieces. We've learned how to use these boosters to our advantage and are entitled to play happily! It's just a game and you're going to continue to lose players if we are too frustrated to play. Please give us back the fun we had for the past months. Thank you!

What Elsa says really seems to be key here-- we need to force ourselves to stop playing so King can see a reduction in numbers and believe us when we say we're fed up! I know it's hard-- it is for me anyway; I really used to like this game and I miss it. But without sticking to our guns, they have no reason to fix this problem!! Let's band together and get this done folks!

Can't reset the board anymore and lose space daggers or helmets when I restart same as described above. That is, on my tablet and PC. On my iphone it still works as it used to. But how long will that last?  And playing on the tablet is much nicer than on the phone.  The changes definitely make the games impossible to play. So frustrating. I have been playing for years, am at 3720 now. Don't think I will make it to 4000.....

I agree. I am so fed up with this. It's just a game-- why did they have to make it so completely frustrating? It was hard enough before to just keep my interest and keep playing. Now it's just too much. Not at all fair. Put back the ability to reset the board! What's the point of the boosters (Space Dash, Magic Helmet especially...) if we can't use them. It's supposed to be fun! Bye bye King. Fix this problem or you might be out of business.

The higher levels are hard enough to finish with a good board set up and Boosters right next to each other perfectly. Without being able to exit the game and restart, they are almost impossible to pass. I dont even care about the life. Just make it so that we don't lose our boosters if we exit out.

Signing in with my new signature that an awesome player here on King Care created for me!  My new name is Queen Elsa and I am going zap all of these issues!  Wait no, I can't be Queen Elsa because she freezes everything instead of changing them.  Seriously speaking, a King Admin checks the messages here during the week so she will see all that you wrote here.  From what I've been told the players are not really quitting the game because their data shows the numbers are still high.  Perhaps if more people quit, like alaskamammy, then they would see a drop in numbers.

I haven’t deleted the app yet but I haven’t played more than one board all week. I log in once a day to get the free daily boosters and open a board to see if I can reset without losing a life....then I see it hasn’t reverted (not really expecting it to anyway) and go ahead and accept the lost life then close the app until the next day when I repeat this.
Eric Two months ago
I’ve been signing in for the daily spin as well. No more. I will stop entirely until this change is reversed or until everyone is once again on a level playing field. I still don’t understand how your programmers think it’s fair to just hit a select few with this.

Hey guys, someone posted this morning that they can save their lives by turning off their wifi when playing on a mobile device.  She said that if it's turned off and you close the game and reopen it you haven't lost a life.  Someone here might want to try that to see if it works.

A few weeks ago, I was also one of the unlucky random folks selected to test this new “feature” - I.e. who lost ability to exit a new game board without losing a life. My spouse was unaffected. At the time, we were both at the same level (about 2680). Since then my wife managed 300 levels while I got 20, exhausting every booster. The game is ruined - until this unfair game behavior is fixed, I quit.

It’s disgraceful isn’t it? It would be bad enough to remove that ability even if it applied to everyone, but to only affect some and not others is infuriating. And Ametro’s situation perfectly spells out why.

To the suggestion above, I tried turning off my wifi to see if I could reset without losing a life.  Nope.  

So if you reset the starting board, even before you make a single move, you lose a life and lose any boosters you were playing. I'm on Level 3800 and that's it.  The last episode was the first I've played since this change. It was a booster grabbing nightmare. I play for fun and with this change, the game isn't fun.  I haven't deleted the app yet, I will give it a few weeks to see if King smarten up, but I won't play again until this change is reversed. I figure a few weeks not playing the Wednesday weekly release and I'll be fully weaned from the game.

I have thought a lot about this since they took away any advantage I had in this game.

 Most of us targetted (NOT randomly selected) are over level 3000. Most uf us do multiple levels per week. Most of us have bought bars and boosters. We are moving too quickly for them amd they want to slow us down so we will buy more bars. 

They know most of us will keep playing. They are tracking use and it hasn’t slowed down and the only people complaining are the few who are on this site.

Solution? STOP BUYING BARS AND BOOSTERS. They have made this change to make you buy that piggy bank to get boosters to get a level. They know you are addicted to it because you are over level 3000. 

If you stop buying, it hits them where it hurts....their investors. They make a  billion dollars a year from is so STOP BUYING! That will bet their attention when their bottom line goes into the toilet. 

Try what my husband does......go waaaay down to those early levels where you can earn  a bunch of boosters then scroll back up and use them on your current level. That way you don’t spend any money yet you load up on boosters. I won’t tell you which levels because you know they are reading this and will alter those levels so you can’t do that anymore either. But make note of them and play them before you start playing that day.

STOP BUYING....THAT WILL GET THEIR ATTENTION!

I used to do just what you say-- gather the boosters (Helmet, etc.) on way-down levels and then go up to the level I'm at to play with them. But that doesn't work anymore. I guess what would work, though, is gathering boosters that are more permanent, sort of in the bank.... but that's so frustrating and time-consuming. Sheesh. This is getting so old already. Bring back our game!!! Thanks for the comments.

Well l just reinstalled to see if l could reset yet without losing a life. Not only can l not, but all my boosters have disappeared. I had nearly 100 coconut wheels too. 

Deleted again. Not even prepared to go back to easier levels to build up boosters again, nor contact King directly to ask why they’d disappeared in the first place. 

If the ones who’ve been targetted are thd ones who have bought in the past (l have) then it stinks even more. Penalising the very players who are contributing to their coffers! Beggars belief.

After more than a month of getting jerked around by King, struggling with multiple and selectively-applied adverse game changes, changes which weren’t communicated, and wasting a LOT of time trying to deal with it... my spouse and I both quit.

This was supposed to be fun. It stopped being so.

We bought bars and watched a lot of revenue-generating ads.

We will find some non-King game to play. 

This is a good example of a company that really doesn’t care about or understand their player base.

Good riddance.  What a favor King ended up doing all of us.  It's been two weeks and I feel like I quit a bad habit (because I did).  Change it back, don't change it back, I'm not reinstalling.  Peace.

Hi JK, it might not have hit everyone's game yet.

With all the complaints, King will always enable board resetting costlessly.

Just to add to the comments. While I have continued to play for the moment,I will NOT be spending any more money until the reset issue is changed back AND the cost of gold bars is also changed back to what it was. It is unfair to cut the number of gold bars from 60 to 30 and maintain the same price. Shameful!   I have lost much of my enthusiasm for the game and feel if nothing is done it may be the end for me. Hope someone is taking notice. Thanks

I didn't know that they had also dropped the amount of gold bars in the piggy bank also.  Obviously they've decided to go after as much cash as they can get.  Not very good customer relations.  I wonder who's advising them?  Probably a good thing I deleted the game.

I hardly play anymore because of this change. I check every so often to see if it’s has changed back. No luck. Has anyone gotten it back?

From what I gathered not playing will not get Kings attention. You have to completely delete the app. I have deleted the app and reinstalled it. You will not lose your place if you log into Facebook. I have not found a game I enjoy.

Won’t the fact you reinstalled cancel out your deletion as far as King are concerned? I think you’re right though - deletion all the way. I haven’t reinstalled.

I play Cookie Crush now, it's really cool, you should try it.

Update:  out of frying pan and into fire. By backing up and restoring my iPhone, I was able to get candy crush to exit a level before first move without losing life and booster. 

However now I can’t quit a level without losing the boosting space ship - which you could before by force-closing the app. 

Someone at King is really messing with things

Welp, I'm out.  It's been a fun 5 years, but I had to uninstall.  If anyone's interested I've been enjoying Wordscapes Uncrossed and Tiny Wings lately.

Maybe the people at King are forcing us all to quit. Maybe by doing this they are hoping they won’t have to make more levels. I have played for 4 or 5 years and I guess I’m done because the game is just too hard without boosters. I’m lucky if I can pass one level a week. Ridiculous! But the only thing I can think of is that they actually want us all to quit.

Don’t quit...they don’t care. Don’t spend one more cent on them! Scroll down to lower levels and load up on boosters, then go back up to your level. It’s really the only way you can pass those upper levels now.

I can accept the change if we have to, what I find ridiculous is that it seems the majority of the players haven’t been affected by it.  If they’re going to keep things this way then make it the same for everyone.  I’ve checked their twitter and FB feeds and most players don’t seem to be aware of it at all.  I haven’t played in weeks now and deleted the app last week.

I was competitive with my family and friends but now they've gone off and left me because they don't have this restriction. There's no point in playing an unfair game. Thanks, King, for ruining a wonderful game. You sure know how to treat your loyal customers /sarcasm.

Just wanted to check in. While I have continued to play Candy Crush, I have totally stopped spending any money. I hope others have done the same. I think we deserve an official reply and/or comment re our issues. I have asked before and I now ask again - is anyone reading this who could shed some light on why this has happened and is it permanent? We deserve a response please!

So I spend at least $100 per month on Candy Crush. If this isn't fixed, I'm done. I will not spend another dime till it's fixed

I was able to restore my ability to exit a level without losing a life or boosters. 

I play on an iPhone. I did a complete encrypted device backup using iTunes.

My account was not linked to Facebook I then linked it to FB and logged into FB to verify my levels showed there.  I deleted the app on iPhone and reinstalled it  No Dice.  Failed experiment. I still lost a life and boosters using either FB or iPhone   

So then I restored my iPhone using the encrypted backup I just took. That reinstalled the candy crush app. I did NOT enter my FB account details then. Presto. Can exit levels again without losing boosters or lives. I lost my player levels but retained my all game level progress.

I have been playing for years (but not for the last month or so because of this issue), never bought a booster or anything on CC, and I'm on level 3486. I don't think CC will go back with the reset option as it was. I honestly think they don't care if a few players are upset and quit the game, they don't need us. Not sure at all they reed this thread. What I find sad is that the advanced players contributed to their success. And we don't ask for much, just to be able to do what was always possible. Oh well!

Still waiting for a change back to be able to reset and getting 60 gold bars instead of 30 for the same price. I was a regular 'spender' but have not and do not intend to make another purchase until fairness is restored. It is not right to take away options from your loyal players/customers. Is anybody listening?

They will not change it ,it’s permanent change now that’s what they replied me.

i quit because it’s not fair if they want this change so it should be for everyone not just for few random people .

good bye candy crush

So they replied that it’s a permanent change? Why would they just select a few people for the change and just let others continue as before? This is beyond ridiculous.

I have done the same thing, Leonie McGurk.....I stopped spending a cent on them because they make a billion dollars a years on that. I still enjoy playing but find it challenging to get the very difficult 3400+ levels. They don’t care of we stop playing.....they care if we stop spending. According to Queen Mia’s comment they will not reverse this. Hit them where it hurts...don’t spend $$$.
