Angry Birds Friends Tournament Lotus F1 Team Level 1 – Week 16 – September 3rd

This is a walkthrough video and strategy for Angry Birds Friends on Facebook “Lotus F1 Team” Tournament Level #1 (week 16 is a special tournament based around the Lotus F1 Team partnership and began on September 3rd, 2012). Our strategy for this level is to fling the yellow bird towards the back of the race car, splitting the ropes holding it in place. Severing the ropes will release the car and blow up the TNT. With a few tries you should be able to destroy all pigs. The score in the video is 78,010.

Our Angry Birds Friends Tournament walkthroughs for Facebook show you how to obtain 3 stars, most of the time without the aid of Power-Ups (we do make exceptions). If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments. Tournament walkthroughs are added weekly as new levels come out, so be sure to check the walkthrough page.

LOVING THE RACING BIRDS WITH CARS! :)

Hi @Gstash, very interested to hear your strategy. I have the gutt feeling that it is possible to do a one birder (SS+KS) in a way that takes the platform and then some of the debris cuts the rope of the car. Is that how you did it? Where did you aim at? Thanks

CONFIRMED: one bird possible for around 85K. As explained above, the key is to throw the yellow bird in a way that detonates the TNT in the middle and the explosion send it to cut the ropes. I managed to do this using KS only; highly repeatable. Aiming point with KS is shooting almost straight and accelerating in the middle of the way. There is probably a way of doing the same without KS, but I wouldn’t know where to aim. Now, there has to be a way of doing this AND allowing the F1 to go to the left and detonate the other one. Though from @andromeda comment below, I speculate that the alternative may also be viable (yellow bird detonates TNT in the middle, yellow bird to the left and then a tire flies cutting the rope).

So, let me put on my engineer hard hat. What is normally preventing the car from going all the way through and detonating the TNT on the left? I think it is the little square rocks, which create easily shred the tires. So, how to get rid of them? I tried an alternative strategy of a low-power-high-arch which consists of cutting below them. For this, you need to have the SS yellow bird. For the moment I managed to get 85K, with the benefit of more debris going towards the rope and maximizing they get cut. Here is an illustration with the slingcope: http://angrybir.de/RCR2RA

UPDATED (05.SEP.2012): @blinddwag, I would like to correct my initial engineering appreciations. With a sample of HUNDREDS of attempts, and after trying different techniques, these are my black-box findings:
1) Amongst the three possible strategies (i.e., 1.high arc a.k.a. the straight forward approach, 2.the falling debris (@sheikho and myself), and 3.the middle arc killing the top pig by @dollarbill2208), the latter is the most consistent in leading to a high score. I will tell you why in a minute.
2) The key to the highest score does not lie in detonating the TNT, which is everybody’s obsession, but rather on destroying as much as possible the chasis of the car. I managed to get more than 90K without even getting close to the TNT on the left. It also happened many times that the TNT detonated, but dwith a relatively low socre in the 80-90K range. So, the obvious questions is: is it possible to control that process?
3) I think yes. It all hinges upon making sure that ONE of the little square rocks falls from the top pig and next to the F1 car. This can easily be seen in Bill’s video and that’s precisely why his strategy is superior and easier to replicate than the others. Of course it CAN randomly happen with the other strategies, but it is much more difficult to control and replicate. Once the little rock is in the way, the released car will tend to go up in the air and proceed with an angle that protects the wheels and allows it to go much further than in plain horizontal acceleration. And the impact when going down makes it much easier to destroy most of the wood and chasis (again, where the point really are, see Bill’s video). Getting to the TNT is the cherry of the cake in this strategey, and that¿s what will end-up differentiating the top scores. Don’t believe me? try it!

That’s true @congo but to be honest I think everyone (who plays AB for quite long time) knows these two points that detonated TNT doesn’t carry enough points rather destroying much possible cars body! LOL :) For this level you’ll end up getting differentiated top scores depending destroying much possible cars body that’s so damn true ;) Luck based level I must say! :) HOPE YOU’RE LISTENING TO GOOD MUSIC! :)

Hi @congo sorry I’m late to reply you as I was away! No I didn’t use any power-up for this level to get 90k! I did like:- YB to throw at TNT but got lucky as after explosion it went jumped backward to cut the ropes and the pig with racing cars destroyed the rest! :) but im wondering how someone scored 101k maybe to score like that total destruction is the only way! :)

Dear @jetchick. I am glad it help. I wish I could say the same about my score… On how to make a picture of your screen, it is quite easy. Press the “Prnt Scrn” (i.e. Print Screen) key in your computer. This copies the actual screen into an image. Then, paste it a program like Powerpoint. Then right click and do a “save as”. The default is PNG, but it is better to save it as a JPG. For the uploading, go up where the yellow ribbon is and look for your nickname on the right. Click. There is one option called “album” that allows you to upload and share pictures. And congrats on that score!

If we get lucky, maybe we can also detonate the TNT’s under the slingshot..

By IrishHeart

@andromeda – Maybe I just had a lucky shot, but when I used the first yellow bird to severe the ties to the car, the car went to the left and hit the TNT which threw debris into the tires under the slingshot and activated the TNT there. It didn’t seem to add too much to my score though.

Keep hitting the end of the Car (same strategy shown here) in the strings until you get your highest score. Got 93K without any power-ups … though I think power ups won’t help in this.

By rjohnson_8ball (@rjohnson_8ball)Score: 93,980

Yes, this is certainly the easiest and surest way to 3 star the level, just to use the first bird to cut the strings. To aim, I draw back from the center of the yellow bird until my mouse is at the bottom left-most corner of the launching platform. I got 92,420 so far this way after much luck.

I tried the prevailing method, but it is tough to get debris or the yellow bird to cut the strings, and then there is still luck to getting enough destroyed as the car gets loose.

The obvious and easiest tactic is not always the one with the highest score. I have been trying the “simple” one, and it is really, really random. Success of detonating both TNT’s is rather small, and I would put it at around 10%. And even then there is no guarantee of a high score. This kind of sucks as a game, because instead of relying on the gamers abilities, the highest score goes to whoever throws the yellow bird the most… @sheikoo, where the heck are you?

I agree with @sspithas. I’ve completed this Tournament and when I did, the opportunity to enter the competition automatically popped up. I purposely read the Terms and Conditions to see what they said about how it is to be judged. It says “The winners will be randomly selected by Rovio……” This conflicts with information on the http://www.lotusf1team.com/Don-t-Get-Mad-Angry-Birds-and.html?lang=en site which says “Aim for the best score on four F1 inspired levels….”

The Terms and Conditions also mention “….disqualify you from this Contest….if your fraud or misconduct affects the integrity of this Contest.” I hope the cheats that play on facebook read this before submitting any stupidly high scores. If they don’t, they could end up rather embarrassed if Rovio calls them on their scores. Mind you, I don’t think it’s going to matter as I believe that the winners will be randomly selected as stated by Rovio. After all it is them running the competition and not Lotus.

I have no intention of entering this competition because I’m not interested in any of the prizes. I hope that all those who do enter are genuinely interested in the Lotus F1 Team and that they’re not entering just for sake of saying “look what I won”. This would be taking away the chances for some real fans who would love to have the prizes.

I also hope everyone who enters does actually read the Terms and Conditions as it also says “You agree and acknowledge that if you win a prize from the Contest, you are responsible for all taxes.” I’ve not seen that before in a competition and wonder how much that could end up costing the winners?

To all the ABN members entering the competition, I wish you luck.

Score: 105,560.. Threw first bird over wooden structure, killing top pig, and then bird continues to cut ropes holding the car … But I think it’s important to get at least one of the small stone blocks surrounding the top pig to fall in front of the car, so the tyres roll over it and the car jumps up.. It gives the car a better chance of making it to the end and setting off the TNT in the left corner for a higher score
