Angry Birds Star Wars 2 Naboo Invasion Level B1-19 Walkthrough

Our non-character swap strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars II Naboo Invasion level B1-19 is to toss Obi-Wan into the nearest structure, throwing debris toward the plasma ball in the top-right corner. If the ball falls gently, it should destroy the entire tower below. Falling debris should topple the bottom-right pig. The score in the video below is 73,280.

I attack a bit lower. After the glass big wall tjere is a concrete brick staying at wooden board. I went under it and push right and up. Only small wooden qube must his glass under power ball. Ball sometimes activates very slowly. It’s better then it’s fall at the center to right side by the 2 glass qubes. I just improve from #4 to #3 by this way.

You are right. It is worth waiting a bit longer before reloading, because the ball reacts really late most of the time.

Thank you @mpg973 for the post and strategy. Worked great!!

The path of travel for Yoda after taking out the left pig was down under the glass to do some damage and then he pops out to hit the structure around the ball and flies left to the get the left pigs. The ball eventually falls before the level ends. Given Yoda’s propensity for random travel paths he could do these in any order but there seemed to be some consistency. Scored 77,000.

Like the use of the word “chance”. It is correct in that it is another word for “luck” but have never seen it used that way. Nice touch.

I also flung Obi as in the video and obtained 75,660 for an above average score.

Two bird strategy:
1. Yoda over the left pig taking him out as described above.
2. Luke Jedi into the two glass blocks on the left taking that wood structure out which produces more than 10K in points. Obtained 76,540.

Current high, 82,740, two birds.

1. Capt Panaka, high arc, landing on wood behind upper left most pig. Shoot glass under orb, do not shot wood. Need wood to remain to direct orb to the left. Orb breaks everything on the right side. Sometimes you get both left pigs with Panaka, sometime only one. Dont worry if you only get one left pig…..that actually helps because you don’t have to rush the second shot.

2. Lando. Same high arc. Taking out remaining pig. Shooting backwards/downwards through right side debris for points. Lando does more than 10k damage to the left side, so you want to take the second shot even if you get all the pigs with the first shot.

Consistently more than 78k.

So basically, on any level with a catapult, a spoon from a catapult, a big stone, or a lightning ball, the actual content of the level is now largely meaningless and arbitrary high scores can be achieved? That’s . . . unfortunate. There are other banned strategies where the content of the level doesn’t matter. Is there a good argument for allowing this technique? The scores achieved are way over the sum of all the points available in the level by normal destruction.

I’ve never asked the admins about anything before, so I’m not sure if it’s appropriate or okay for me to do so, but hopefully this is okay: @admins

These strategies are unfortunate but they DO use only the content of the level. They are achieved by exploiting the way certain elements present in the level score using how the elements’ scoring is designed by Rovio on purpose or not. Even if the scoring is not maximized it can be used to bring scores up to a top level without reaching the score cap. The only possible solution I see is to impose a lower score cap as I have advocated previously. Even this negates conventional angry birds strategies. As it stands now there are only a few players which remain competitive for overall episode scores. This I really dislike. It has been very enjoyable competing against @caseycolorado recently as he is the only player that is really playing well. It’s not much fun using these unconventional strategies. I am actually considering returning to the dead app ABSW for a while. I wish there was a better solution. Banning all use of these strategies would not be effective as the elements are so widespread in ABSW2 and can be used to add a little or a lot to a score.

Those are very kind words about me. Thank you, @wicket182. Very sad words about the game.

One thought — I think the fact that the strategies can be used to add a little or a lot to a score shouldn’t be reason for not banning them because the same is true of the other banned techniques. Actually, I only know of one banned technique, and in its simplest form, it gives you 1,000 extra points every time you use it (which hopefully makes it obvious which one I’m talking about without giving away how to do it). And that technique is banned. Yes, it’s impossible to tell and impossible to police it, but the entire board is based on the honor system anyway. So if that technique can be successfully banned, so could this.

The spoon/large-stone/lightning-ball technique is pretty clearly a glitch in the game. While I haven’t ever used the techniques myself, it looks like scores are achievable up in the range where Rovio will delete your scores in Apple’s Game Center. Yes, they use elements in the levels, but they use elements that are present in many levels in a way that lets you get a crazy score regardless of the rest of the level’s content. It makes going for high scores on those levels (of which there are many) pointless, doesn’t it?

Oh yes @thee-michelle, the most fun was before last chance when there was very close competition and sharing of true strategies. Positions and top scores were swapping every day. Then was very disappointing when hours or days of perfecting a strategy were wiped out by some new strategy or character with super abilities. I remember how I felt when the first curveball was thrown our way with the traitor mode. Many many hours of bird side scores wiped out in a matter of minutes by using Vader in the bird side. Much the same as Chopper and Imperial officer after the last update.

Rank: Shooter with 750 points
By CaseyColorado (@caseycolorado)Score: 98,700

Personally, I enjoy the new characters and appreciate their addition. For me, both the new characters and traitor mode were like getting a new game for free (and then I bought the telepods because I was having so much fun on the new levels, but that’s a different matter). Of course, I hadn’t been playing for very long before they were introduced, so I didn’t really have anything invested in previous high scores.

I am (quite obviously) not nearly as good as either of you, @wicket182 and @thee-michelle, and most of the time, I don’t tend to hang on to high scores for all that long (because one of the two of you beats me pretty quickly most of the time), so I can’t place too much personal value on having my name listed on the boards. I mean, I have a few high scores and I take some pride in that, but the main joy I get is from being the first to discover and work out a new technique, so the new characters were good for me. I guess the benefit or harm of the new characters and addition of traitor mode depends on personal feelings about the accomplishment of holding high scores versus the discovery of new techniques. The hours spent on a score that’s later beaten are only wasted if you didn’t enjoy the hours, and pretty much no score that I set which gets beaten right away took me less than a few hours to work out (and sometimes I spend days working out a new technique before posting it and having it beaten almost immediately), so I’m not new to that experience. If the joy is discovery or getting to say “Hey, look what I found that’s better than anything that came before,” then additions to the game are good. If the joy is “Look how many top scores I have” or “look at the ranking I’ve achieved,” then new additions are bad. (And, of course, for the vast majority of players who aren’t posting scores on a website, new additions are strictly bonuses — fun new ways to play.)

But LCS definitely makes the boards less broadly competitive because you can’t do it well without buying lots of shooters, and most of us aren’t willing to do that. I will never provide any serious competition on an LCS level because I don’t want to spend the money required. I’ve done LCS on a few levels with my Heroes/Villains telepods plus some carbonite characters in order to see how high I could get my overall ranking (and I surprised myself by working my way up to 5th, though I’m 2 million points behind @cconnielf in front of me and 5 million points behind @wicket182). But many levels have a non-LCS high score, those are the ones that I enjoy working on (and the occasional LCS level where I can beat the LCS score with a new non-LCS technique :-) ).

But it seems like so many levels have a large stone, spoon, or lightning ball in them. If all those levels have meaningless scores (because anyone who buys enough shooters and spends enough time has the same 250,000 score). . . how much of the game is left?

One last plea: The bulk of the high scores are in the process of switching to 250,000 as the arms race continues. @admins, you have the power to ban using this spoon/stone/lightning-ball glitch if you so desire. The whole board is honor system, anyway. @wicket182, @thee-michelle, @crazy-rider you all have the option to stop, too. Otherwise, you’ll be doing the same thing on a couple hundred levels in order to all get exactly the same score.

@admins, @sal9, I’ve given this some thought and would like to offer the following. These strategies were sort of discovered by accident. Myself and @thee-michelle were attempting to discover how players could score higher than what appeared to be the maximum available points using LCS. The players for the most part were not scoring extreme amounts of points yet their scores were higher than normal. When asked, the usual response was that they did nothing special or unusual. What this means is that points can unintentionally be added to normal scores with no real way to know that it has happened. Given this, outright banning the strategies in my opinion is not really a “fair” option.
There is no way to know what a player’s “real” score is without the extra points. I personally refrained from entering the super max scores until I was in danger of losing my top overall score. I lost many of my “normal” scores when I unfortunately decided to participate in this no fun strategy. I stopped using this strategy when it started costing a fortune to compete with a strategy which was really meaningless.
I suggest that the maximum on ALL the levels which have scores of 250,000 be lowered to just above the highest score below the 250k. This will bring some sort of parity to the leaderboards. As it is now, there are just a couple of players that are so far ahead of the rest of the field it’s just not fun to play anymore.
As always I will accept whatever decision you make. I just really don’t know what to do about scores where I formally had top score if these strategies are just “banned”. I have zero idea what those scores were and scores were overwritten by the current scores. Also, this strategy was previously discussed months ago and deemed acceptable.

We will set a cap on most levels and revert to “pure absw2” scoring: Swaps and LCS scores only. Glitched or Exploit scores won’t be allowed. I think this rule will help keep the leaderboard as fair and balanced as possible. There will be a margin of error, and we need your help to narrow this to a minimum.

Thanks @sal9 for looking into this. A couple thoughts in reference to @wicket182‘s proposal. It seems to me there are maybe four types of people who use the leaderboard and walkthroughs:

1. People looking to figure out how to get 3 stars but who don’t post scores. That’s probably the vast majority of visitors.
2. People who like to have a sense of where they stand, maybe try to beat average, but don’t really compete for top scores. That’s most of the rest of the visitors.
3. People who compete for the occasional top score on a level and like to know how good their strategies are relative to the top players. There are maybe 30 or 40 of us (I’m in this group).
4. People who compete for the overall top score. There are currently three: @wicket182, @crazy-rider, and @wicket1822

Groups 1 and 2 aren’t really affected by this (though I guess on a level that would otherwise have a max score of 70k, having a few 250k scores can pull the average up a bit, but that’s it), and that’s the majority of users.

Group 3 is affected because there are fewer levels on which we can compete. The handful of top scores that I have keep falling to this exploit, and that’s annoying, but I guess not really that big of a deal. The problem that I have is that if the top players have pointless 250k scores from an exploit, when I come up with a new strategy, I have no idea how good it is. It removes all incentive to innovate.

In Group 4, it looks like @wicket1822 isn’t bothering to use this silly exploit anymore, so it’s really just a feud between @wicket182 wanting to keep his #1 ranking and @crazy-rider trying to overcome him. @crazy-rider is on PC where coins don’t cost real money (just time), and @wicket182 is on iOS where coins are expensive. So @wicket182 is spending lots of money to keep his #1 ranking, which is unfortunate. (Not that I have any problem with @crazy-rider making a run for the top spot.) There is no way to do this exploit without coins. You could do every possible carbonite reward and ad watching for a month and still not have enough of the right birds to do a single level.

But while lowering the max score as @wicket182 proposes would help save @wicket182 money (a valid goal as far as I’m concerned), it only affects three players. For the rest of us, lowering the max score doesn’t do anything.

I don’t know what fraction of levels have the exploit available. On B1, 10/24 levels have so far become pointless for competition. On B4 and P4, it’s 8/22 each. It seems like it could easily end up being between a third and half the levels, and that’s just a shame. And the more recently added levels have more of the hard-to-destroy stuff where the exploit works, so it may be worse than that.

An option in between would be to ban using it on any additional levels. Of course, that adds some urgency since more levels are being added to the group all the time. When the strategy was discussed and allowed, it only involved spoons — a fairly limited set of levels. Now it’s big rocks, catapults, and lightning balls. Are there more? What about gears? Big bones? It seems pretty clearly an exploit to me, and you have to use a whole lot of birds to make it work, so it seems hard to do by accident. (You can accidentally use two birds together in a way that’s banned, too, but it seems equally as unlikely.) If someone gets more points than are available by LCS (or by LCS plus the bonus for magically getting full destruction with a single bird), several people would notice immediately and report the score. Yes, someone could maliciously use it to get a barely new high score, but someone can use two birds together in a banned way to do the same. It’s all honor system with the occasional checks on reasonableness by other players, anyway.

@caseycolorado, your simplistic categorization of Group 4 is complete rubbish. Over the years, yes years and not just three months, @thee-michelle, @crazy-rider and myself have contributed too many top scoring strategies to count. Granted in the end we compete for the overall top scores because there is not much left to do without updates. Our contributions are done in the spirit of competiveness. This game is not much fun without the competition. We certainly would not be willing to disclose our “secrets” if our singular goal was to attain top score. You should do a youtube search for crazy72rider if you want to see a flinger that goes out of his way to help others instead of just attaining a top score. I personally have had overall top score (at times overtaken by @thee-michelle) prior to my discovering and publishing in details of LCS, during LCS only and with the new Log Strategy. So as someone fairly new to the nest you should not be misled into thinking that the three of us only hold the top three scores because of the unorthodox strategies made available by Rovio (intentional or not). I have no doubt that we would still be there no matter the mechanics of the game.

Most of your top scores have fallen to conventional one or two bird strategies and not the exploit as you claim. I surpassed most of those scores rather quickly and easily. I allow you to retain a “handful of top scores” to give you a sense of hope. I have enjoyed the competitiveness you offer and do what I can to keep you motivated.

Each of the exploits use ONLY what is provided in the gamefield. There is no artificial manufacture of points. This discussion is very similar to the many that have taken place concerning, Swaps, LCS and the Initial Log Strategy. I personally would not and have not used any strategy which increases a score by any means other than points available in the gamefield or points from unused birds.
My motivation for wanting the score maximum lowered has very little to do with cost. That really has to be taken in context. “started costing a fortune to compete with a strategy which was really meaningless”, the point was not the cost itself but the fact that the strategy was meaningless because I was going to still have top rank as I have now and everyone else was going to be so far behind that I would have little incentive to play a game that I really enjoy.
As I stated in a previous post, “players could score higher than what appeared to be the maximum available points using LCS. The players for the most part were not scoring extreme amounts of points yet their scores were higher than normal. When asked, the usual response was that they did nothing special or unusual. What this means is that points can unintentionally be added to normal scores with no real way to know that it has happened.” It is very reasonable that during the use of LCS unintentional points can and will be gained. I personally believe the players that this happened to when they explained that they did not know where the points came from. This makes it rather difficult to outright ban a strategy that can be used unintentionally. It’s not like using a power up.

For now, I am going back to the original ABSW to regain some of my previous top level scores. Hopefully the @admins will implement a fair and balanced approach to this soon.

I have no idea why you’re mentioning all the strategies you all of provided. I’ve never said anyone didn’t contribute significantly, and I’ve complemented you and thanked you and others for them several times. As I said, I think it’s silly that you’re having to spend money to maintain your ranking. If spending the money doesn’t bother you, that’s fine. I just think you shouldn’t have to. Right now, there are only three people competing for the top score, and those are the only people who lowering the cutt-off score would affect. There’s nothing pejorative in that statement. That’s just the way it is. I’m in fifth place and I’m 6 million points behind you. And yes, as you so kindly point out, that’s because you’re a better flinger than me, granted. But lowering the score cap doesn’t affect me, and it doesn’t affect anyone with fewer points than me, either. That’s all I’m saying, and I have no idea why you’re taking such issue with that. Yeesh.

@caseycolorado, I’m sorry I haven’t seen this discussion before and allow me to put in my two cents.
First, I agree with almost everything you’re saying. Just a month ago, I was in your shoes, overall score around 46.5 M,
good scores on most of the levels except for the ones with the log strat and very far behind the others.
So I took a try at at this strategy and the more I look, the worse it gets. Every episode is affected except Escape To Tattooine – Pork Side, so most of the leaderboards are meaningless.
I then decided to push it to the limit to get a reaction from the other players as well as the ABN admins.
It appears that we all agree that this is a big problem with no easy solution.
I agree with @wicket182 that the limit on those levels should be lowered. It would be great if the @admins set the limit at about 5-10k above what can “normally” be achieved.
This way, people who don’t want to use this strat wouldn’t be so far behind and it would be far less costly to people who do.
Speaking of cost, I made a point of not spending any money on this game, so I milked the few levels available on PC. For the 130 levels tha are not available on PC, I came up with a strategy that allow me to get a lot of coins on Android (as much as I want) without buying them. Here it is:
-Save your progress to a Rovio account (If you haven’t already done it).
-Uninstall and re-install the game to erase your progress.
-Do NOT connect to any existing Rovio account.
-Play the whole game, you should collect around 10,000 coins.
-Save this to a NEW Rovio account (all you need is a different valid e-mail address).
-Do that on all your devices (In my case, my old tablet, my new tablet, my phone and my 2 Android emulators on PC, giving me 50,000 free coins to spend as I like)
-Rinse and Repeat with as many accounts as necessary, the sky’s the limit there (and of course time spent).

I agree with @sal9 and ABNteam.
I’ve rewritten most of the wrong score. Small part is I will continue to rewrite the future.
Thank you!

@sal9, I removed all of my log/boulder strategy scores. But in the process I noticed a few problems:
-It’s really hard to revert to the approved strategy score even using “-1” several times, the score sometimes isn’t in the database. That probably explain why @wicket182 and @thee-michelle still have a lot of “unclean” scores despite their efforts. I could only find back some of my old scores on a separate spreadsheet I keep for myself, otherwise I would have no idea what they were.

-Posting this change of policy here, in the middle of nowhere, means that a lot of players won’t be aware of it (mainly @cconnielf and @vodka9 who own quite a few forbidden scores and haven’t been named in your post). You should probably make it more clear to everyone.

-How do you intend to keep the leaderboards clean exactly? You really should put a very low score limit on all the levels with a log or a boulder in it, but that won’t prevent someone to use this strategy to reach it.

Even if I complied with your decision, I still think the best course of action would be to allow scores using this strategy (after all it’s not that different from LCS, and I don’t really understand why one strategy is allowed and not the other), but put in place a score limit 5k or 10k above what’s “normally” possible. If you don’t want to use the strat, you wouldn’t be too far behind and if you’re using it, it wouldn’t cost as much time and coin.

I really hope we’ll have a clean leaderboard some day soon !

@crazy-rider, I agree with the very low score cap approach. Initially, before the log/Boulder strategy was figured out, we were at a loss to explain why some LCS scores were a little higher than others. What I think was happening was that we were unknowingly scoring from the log/Boulder method. It is very easy to “accidentally” add a few points while shooting everything in the play field. I think we will have players that honestly think they did not use the strat but actually increased their scores minimally, inadvertently. It is going to be very difficult to “police” this change in policy from the @admins.
