Angry Birds Star Wars II Galactic Giveaway On Now!

Have you been struggling to earn precious Bird Coins in Angry Birds Star Wars II? Looking to earn a few more character swaps to help you compete at a higher level on the ABN Leaderboard? Hi, I’m AMslimfordy and do I have a deal for you in ABSW2 v1.4.0, currently available for iOS and Android via Google Play, with coming soon to more platforms soon.

Sorry everyone, I fell asleep watching info-mercials last night and wanted to see how a post would sound written like one. Moving on.

This update includes:

  • A 1000-Coin Galactic Giveaway! Scattered around most levels are Bird Coins. Simply hit them with something (a character, debris, a rocket, etc.) to earn upwards of 1000 Bird Coins!
  • Carbonite Rewards! Similar to a few other Angry Birds apps, there is now a randomized lottery to earn you a free Character Swap. The Carbonite takes 8 hours to melt, so you can earn a free Swap once per 8 hours. Or, if you’re impatient, melt the Carbonite immediately for 80 Coins (this price decreases as the timer counts down).
  • “Traitor” Mode! At least, that’s what I want to call it. You can now use Bird Swaps on Pork Side levels, and vice versa, for a small fee. To become a traitor for a single level costs 10 Coins, and for all levels costs 299 Coins. Note that these are separate purchases per side.
  • Disable Character Hints! If you’re tired of getting instructions on how to use a character, you can disable this in the home screen: Click on the Gear, then the exclamation point (or “shriek”). Bye-bye pesky reminders!

So don’t delay, hurry to an App Store near you to download this latest update. These Bird Coins are in high demand and retail at $9.99, yours for free (just feel bad about the very poor handling of your lovely birds).

Oh, and help is only a forum topic away. See:

    Actually how it work?
    I cannot see countdown timer after tap ‘8H’, and does it required internet to get melt?

    @pjng yes when activate melting you need internet connection, also for collecting after 8h you need internet connection (not all the time between start and collect)

    It’s weird. Sometimes I receive a notification on my screen that I have a reward waiting for me in SWII and carbonite melted. When I go in the game, I discover it’s still counting down.

    If it doesn’t require internet connection, Users can MELT the Carbonite by changing time/date of their device, too easily. The app needs this possible to prevent the frauds of hackers.

    Re Traitor Mode — I suppose I should have known this, but in the search for more coins, I actually squandered 299 permanently unlocking bird characters for pork levels. What it means is that you can use your hard-earned bird character swaps to swap them into pork levels. Tried one and didn’t see any more coins.

    And just to prove how ignorant I am in terms of using swaps, I think I should have unlocked the pork side. Gaah.

    @joeyba — Hey! No fair! I also only get 2 extra melts when the melt period is up. Has anyone gotten Luke Endor, Silver C-3PO, Carbonite Han Solo, Boba Fett, Biker Scout, Hologram Darth Sidious, Shocktrooper, jabba the Hutt, or Tusken Raider?

    @AMSlimfordy @BirdLeader @all — Has anyone found more than 914 or 915 coins yet?

    Rank: Sling God with 20550 points
    By Joey (@joeyba)

    @mvnla2 I dont know why i keep ending at 911…
    I checked all the levels 4 times already (as posted in page 1-2) and it keeps adding to 911 (896 i have + 15 i did not get yet)

    I thought this is worth mentioning and taking your opinion:
    I play the game on IPhone 5. I have it also installed on IPhone 4 (never play on it) and both are signed with my Rovio account.
    Every 8 hours I get the melting reward on both of them separately (different rewards). However the watching AD that gives 2 more tries is available only on IPhone 5, not on the 4..
    Conclusion: the more devices the game is on, the more rewards you get..

    Some comments on the Carbonite melting reward:
    * You can watch an ad to melt the carbonite in slightly less than 8 hrs. Not sure how much less yet.
    * If it is close to the 8 hrs, it’s better to wait, because you will get more chances for new characters. If your schedule conflicts with waiting, you will get at least 2 rounds (1 ad to melt the carbonite early, and 1 bonus round)
    * At most I have gotten 2 ads to watch to melt immediately, so if you wait the carbonite to melt, you get 3 rounds. I have never gotten more than 2 ads (and never less), but @Joeyba got 4 ads!
    * This morning I got 7 shocktroopers (in 2 consecutive cycles), and 1 darth sidious (not the hologram)

    Bah! I didn’t get any ads to watch this morning for extra characters. Is this just me being unlucky, or have the extra rounds stopped for everyone?
    BTW — Yesterday I did get 1 (count ’em, one) Jabba and 1 silver C 3PO! Still hoping / waiting for the hologram Darth Sidious, Boba Fett, Biker Scout, Royal Guard (still need 1 or 2), Luke Endor, and Carbonite Han (still neeed 1?).
    Has anyone gotten any of these?

    @mvnla2 no ads for me :(
    Maybe we shouldn’t wait till the end of the melting.

    @joeyba — Haven’t managed to figure out when you can melt early by watching an ad. Even when we were getting lots of ads, at 2 hrs early, no ads were available. I have seen ads at 10 or maybe 20 min early, but bet they won’t be there today. I still have more than 2 hrs left to go on current melt.

    Rank: Sling God with 27000 points
    By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

    @Joeyba — I’m at 10 min left ’till melt, and no ads offered, so I think they’re gone. Fooey!

    Rank: Sling God with 20550 points
    By Joey (@joeyba)

    @mvnla2 yea i think they stopped the ads…
    i got 2 jabba by normal melting and lost them again!!! :(

    @mvnla2 I got today as a reward 3 Hologram Sidious.
    I only made good use of 1, the other two I lost..
    Still no ads

    OH, yes Rovio has admitted that there are not 1000 coins available yet, but hasn’t said how many.

    @MVNLA2 There are 920 coins to be collected.

    @Josm — Where did you get the 920? Rovio hasn’t given me an exact answer yet. Actually they’ve given conflicting answers.

    LoL! Rovio tweeted to me, but I didn’t get an e-mail notification!

    MVNLA ‏@MVNLA 23h
    @AngryBirds How many coins are currently available in Galactic Giveaway? Rovio says less than 1000. Would really like to know how many.

    Why do they not have the ‘watch ad, carbonite melted’ thing in Android/Google Play? And how does it work?
