1) Correct. The candies are awarded virtually real time.

2) I've never found a firm pattern. My first one is often at the same place just after I start the app but after that they vary greatly although I get more consistent results if I've plotted a route. A candy will usually pop up at a junction shortly after I've passed another and my odds of reaching that next one are 100% unless I do a u-turn mid-segment or stop.

The caramel (candies) theory

Postby enhket » Sat Dec 01, 2012 4:31 pm

I call it theory because i have not found any accurate information about it! Okay, so i have gone through a lot of tests to know how things work. I have been checking out the candies, and days ago i didnt edit anything so i would have 0 candies left. There are 2 weird things, the first one is, i thought you need get actived your candies after every points update in order to loot them the next day (or once the ranking is updated), but it didnt happen that way, once i had no candies left (and i did drive like 2 days -having edited nothing- to make sure) i edited to get a few candies and my surprise is i got the candies without waiting for the map-edit update (when the system updates the points). I mean, it looks like you can get the candies ready, as soon as you get to do 500 map edits and you dont need wait for the ranking to update.

The second one is about the place where you pick up your candies. i have tried to get the candies in different places, and it didnt work. I do always get the candies at the same places where i get them everyday. i have heard you have to absolutly stop your car in order to get the candy in the next corner, but didnt work either. So i thought you need get a certain speed and the segment (to the next corner) need meet a certain lenght, but didnt work either. I guess that the segment where you get the candy need meet a time requirement, i mean, you get the candies in segments which are a few months or years old?

any extra info from someone? :shock:

oh yes, i have found out that if you are driving in some place and you are getting no candy, but you do turn in the next corner, you will get the candy (even though you will not slow down enough to consider your car at 0 speed). Well, that gets to happen a few times, i do that when i am not getting the candy.

whenever you get to do 500 map-edits in WME, you get an 750 points candy.

Indeed... I made a lot of edits during Christmas....

As my commute is mostly above 40 kph, I rarely get more than 4 candies a day, so it took until this week before I had candy-less days...

You drive to church 4-6 times on any given Sunday?
