I’m missing levels in my PC version of Seasons! I canm’t get all the GE’s because I don’t have the levels they’re on. How can I get these missing levels?

By Liz

Angry Birds 2 for iPad. When I try to enter the Arena I get: Connection Error. Please check your internet connection. I have quit and restarted and even shutdown and rebooted. Still getting error but I am connected.

By Jim

On angry bird 2. I suddenly can’t access the Colosseum. Says to check my internet connection but everything else connects fine in my other apps.

By Terry

Angry Birds 2 Connection Error. Cannot get to arena.

By Dave

Won’t let me in arena as of 8/21/15, it says I need to check my Internet connection. There is nothing wrong on my end

By Sid

connection error into arena. Even deleted app. Reinstalled, same prompt. No changes on my device, it started suddenly yesterday

By Ong

After i updated my ipad to Ios 8.4.1, i can no longer use “ask everyone for help”. It kept giving me a blank list.

By Madison

I can’t play the arena because it says I don’t have an interent connection when I do. Please fix this problem!

This issue should be fixed by now.

@amslimfordy – was it a hiccup at Rovio?

The check-connection problem seems to coincide with the end of an arena tournament at 8:00 PM East coast time — at least for me. It happened yesterday and just now.

By Madison

I’m still having the same problem :(

By Debbie

This is driving me mad! Firstly, the slings shoot automatically without me having chance to position them and secondly at the end of a game once all the pigs have gone, I don’t have chance to get do anything else before the game ends. I’ve lost numerous ‘slings’ or ‘bulk up’ power ups because of this. Even when you are still active, it finishes the game. I have reloaded 4 times and it hasn’t fixed the problem. Thank you!

By Greg

I have the same problem with the slingshot shooting the bird all by itself. I make sure I never do any accidental touches or anything like that, that might cause it to be my fault. On one level just now, I lost FOUR birds that way! I’m going to contact Rovio about this. I love the game, but this just frustrates the crap out of me.

I’ve had the same experience but it hasn’t happened for a while. At first I thought that I might be causing the launch of the next bird by tapping the screen to initiate the previous bird’s special ability but I never “tapped” anywhere close to the sling. Since it hasn’t happened lately, I wonder if the latest update — adding more levels up to 260 — has fixed the problem.

By Debbie

Hi jwgardenwiz

This did happen a while ago with me also, but it did seem to rectify itself. This has only been a problem again since I installed Windows 10. I’m sure it will take time for them to catch up! Zuma Blitz also has a problem and they told me to use Chrome too!

By Debbie

Hi Greg
I did contact them and their reply is here:

We are sorry to hear that you are having problems with Angry Birds Friends. Games that function online within Facebook are sometimes susceptible to such glitching and freezing. In order to open the game and keep it running smoothly please try the following steps:

– Make sure your Internet connection is strong
– Close all unnecessary windows
– Close all unnecessary applications that use an Internet connection
– Make sure that your current browser is up to date
– Try opening the game on a different browser (preferably on Chrome)

Some people have issues with getting all the images to show on screen. This might be caused by using an ad-block that disables not only ads but also some in-game images.

With regards to levels ending too soon: The levels must end at some point even if items are still moving, because some levels can have items that will keep on moving forever (ropes, balls, items on bouncy mats). The game team always has to choose a time limit for the level ending after all birds have been used or all piggies have been popped. The goal is to have a time that is not too long (it can actually be really boring if you have to wait and wait and wait for each level to end) and not too short (so that the items that are moving when the level has been finished have some time to drop and possibly break). We have tried to adjust this time to be fair to everyone, but we get both complaints that the levels should end faster and that they should take longer to end. However, we are listening to our users’ feedback, and will always keep making adjustments to provide the best possible game experience.

It is not advisable to use power-ups after all the pigs have been popped.

I replied telling them that I am using Windows 10 and Edge and using Chrome isn’t much better and I do have the latest version. I haven’t heard anything since!

I think maybe it’s a Windows 10 compatibility problem but I’m not very clever! If you hear anything different I’d be interested to know please.

@jwgardenwiz. Maybe this is something I have been watching all week. At 5 PM Pacific standard time it clogged almost every day, with this error message. But it cleared up within 5 to 10 minutes. 5 PM PST is when the tournament closes on the West Coast.

@jwgardenwiz – just checked, it is still down . I think that we should exclude all flingers in Los Angeles from the the last hour of the tournament – they are overloading the system. They score too high anyway.

@gelfling that would help but it is a little drastic. Maybe Rovio could announce a 30min rest period after concluding a tournament to allow their servers to process the traffic.

First let me apologize to any of you who live in Los Angeles. It is not fair that Rovio ends tournaments at 5pm PST, while you are still at work, so that you cannot get in a few last minute flings before it ends. But even with that handicap you do score much too high, making it very difficult for poor gelfling to rise to the top of that ladder.

For a reality check, I went out to test my sense of humor to diagnose any humor pathology and see where it is coming from. (Others here may enjoy taking
it as well, it took about five minutes with no obnoxious ads.) According to that test, I have a “laugh at life” sense of humor: “Life is too short to be serious all the time. So, if you can’t laugh at yourself, call me, I’ll laugh at you!”

@jwgardenwiz, I hope that you take any remarks that I make in the future with two grains of salt. My humor is rarely literal, frequently dry, and on the dark side. I would be interested in what type of humor you have.

By jwgardenwiz (@jwgardenwiz)

@gelfling, I thought that it was pretty clear that you were just joking joking. If I had my wish, Rovio would just exclude scores above a given threshold — my posted high score for example — but I son’t think that that is going to happen any time soon. I’ll try the site that you cite and let you know how I do.

That is funny. I thought about the exact same thing, going back through and trying to present myself as a different sense of humor.

Profile photo of jwgardenwizRank: Master Slinger with 6080 points
By jwgardenwiz (@jwgardenwiz)

@gelfling — I also scored “Laugh at Life” sense of humor. I may retake the test with altered answers to see what difference it makes.

By Gelfling (@gelfling)

Ahhh. I get it. Another person who’s wit is so dry and wry that it can be mistaken for something else. I got into trouble here because I wrote a piece of humor and someone took it literally and threatened to kick me out. Nice to know that’s not your bent.

Somehow this software tangled the sequence of my posts, hope they makes sense.

Angry Birds 2 can’t enter the arena near the end of the tournament time…happens at the same time every evening. Says internet connection is lost but I am on the internet and everything else is working finr. Very frustrating when you’re trying to get another shot at the leaderboard!

go to buy credits and a message that the URL doesn’t match the apps version….will not let me buy anything and then screen freezes, anyone else having this issue?

By Mitzrael

I use the original Angry Birds on my Android and on the stage 14 of the Egg Defender the second and 4th pigs don’t show up, sometimes the 2nd show up but the 4th one just explodes before it shows on the screen so I’m not able to destroy its vehicle. It happened with a couple of more pigs on different stages of the egg defender but restarting the level a couple of times fixed the issue. Any idea?

By Lillian Howard

why can’t I connect on to angry birds 2 and gets shutting off
