Hi @amslimfordy the top score in Rio BB2 is clearly not attainable ,probably just entered in wrong spot

I have noticed that 3* min scores have increased in several levels along with seasons and ABO.. has the leaderboard been adjusted ? I dont see a post about this but then i havent checked every where. When i say increased i mean in game.. and the thing is i had them all 3* and the awards etc done which still show done but the front screen shows several levels at 1 or 2 stars only.

The leaderboards are usually only adjusted when it is brought to the admins attention. Most of the times when these min scores are increased it goes unnoticed until someone like yourself happens to lose a star. If you ever see this happen feel free to post that the score has changed and they will adjust it accordingly.

Rank: Sling God with 27855 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

To my knowledge, this has only happened thrice:
1) Rio > Carnival Upheaval 8-5: minimum 3-star scores was accidentally raised to an impossible standard. This was later fixed and returned to the original threshold, so nothing ever changed on the leaderboards. We did (read: do) have this listed in the Bug List.
2) O > Poached Eggs ?-?: Sorry, the number alludes my mind at the minute. I think 3-5 or so. Anyways, the one with the single hut with ~6TNT inside and the whole thing goes boom when you break a bird through the ice roof. That was changed in one update and then returned to the original after a few complaints. Sorry for the vagueness in this one.
3) Seasons > Piglantis 2-9: This threshold has (currently) been raised from 100k to 102k. Rovio has been informed and they will likely return it to the original score. In the meantime, our leaderboard says 102k, as it is the current threshold.

After 200* flings, and placing the blue bird every place it will go, I’m of the opinion that just closing your eyes and flinging where ever it goes, then dealing with whatever is left is as sane a strat as any. But with my score, I certainly can’t be seen as the best judge of that! Anyone out there found anything remotely repeatable?

Short of sounding like the village idiot, are there any plans to release “Golden Beachball” to the general population. Not everyone is willing to spend $20+ on a cartoon. I’ve also heard that the code is no longer packaged with the DVD. Also, I see mention of “Eagle Bonus Levels” and “Star Bonus Levels.” Assuming that the Eagle levels has something to do with the Mighty Eagle, another piece to the puzzle I don’t have, and the Star levels probably have to do with total stars in Rio. Where can I find these levels? @amslimfordy

Rank: Sling God with 27855 points

I don’t have any information regarding the Golden Beachball levels. You would have to ask Rovio.

The “Eagle Bonus Levels” will not be available for those platforms which do not have the Mighty Eagle, I assume.

@AMslimfordy, is the score of 108890 even possible on Carnival Upheaval 8-15 by normal methods(without power-ups)? I have tried every strategy available on this site but nothing seems to yield that high score. Always stuck at 65-66K.

That level has been known to self destruct and sometimes the yield is unobtainable by normal means. The following link is a forum thread that tracks those levels. Scroll down to ABR and it’s the 2nd & 3rd entries. Levels of damage vary

Happy birdslinging new year to all of you!

I cannot express how impressed I am with the honesty the users on angrybirdsnest have shown, what with the power-ups being “legalized” in angry birds rio. After I discovered I had access to power-ups, I thought for sure that I was going to drop deep down on the scoreboard for Smuggler Den(I even found myself very frustrated, knowing that the screen might not show the difference between scores achieved with power-ups and those achieved without power-ups).
Is the crew at Rovio thinking about changing this, so that a screenshot would show whether or not power-ups were utilized?

Thanks to all of you for fair-play and keep up your good game!

Rank: Champion with 3300 points
By ohforfive (@ohforfive)

You’re probably embarking on a massive waste of time @hkg. Sometimes those high scores are achieved by incredible strokes of good luck. I’ve done it myself a couple times, and once one person does it, others try to surpass it. They are usually successful.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5895 points
By HKG (@hkg)

I think in general I can tell whether a level (of AB Rio) requires mostly skill, mostly luck, or a more balanced mix of the two — and hence whether luck alone can explain some very high scores. In fact, if you look at a level’s leaderboard and find that the top positions are populated by top notch players like manu, bluevertigo et al, then you can almost be certain that for that particular level, skill is the most important factor.

Rank: Champion with 3935 points

Thanks for that recognition @hkg. Im glad there are people like you that know when scores are too high.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5895 points
By HKG (@hkg)

@amslimfordy, I can advise that for Jungle Escape Star #5, the current high score of 95950 is not achievable provided that (a) Power-Up is not used and (b) there is no system glitch, subject to the following assumptions:

(1) the level is stable ie, 0-birder is not possible
(2) the 8 pieces of stones remain intact. I will come back to this later as this is not important.

To estimate the amount of materials, I tried to play the game using all three birds. I spent two hours and the maximum I got was 68500 (ie, if one can achieve that amount of damage with just one bird, he would get a total score of 88500).

I also tried to estimate the amount of materials in each of two structure. The right structure can be pinned down almost exactly at 19000. For the left structure, I could manage a maximum of 50000 and judging from the debris, I can say with much confidence that it cannot be more than 54000. Putting together, this means all materials (excluding 8 pieces of stones) is worth 73000. If one can do it with one bird, he has a score of 93000, still short of the current high score of 95950. And don’t forget, this assumes one can wipe out everything (except stones) with just one bird — this in itself is already unrealistic.

To destroy stones, one either have to direct the green bird into the pile of three small stones, or use focussed efforts of all three birds. But the price of doing so is lots of woods remain undamaged, leading to suboptimal scores. Hence stones are out of the equation here.

From a holistic point of view, this is a simple level, and the standard treatment is one-birder, with both the boulder and the bird roll to the ground and destroy things on their way. There are limited alternative strategies and all of them are visibly inferior.

I hope the above information help.

HI @hkg ,I have only just come back to try and up my scores on the Bonus levels ,and spent an hour or so using all birds on this particular level and then adding 20k ,and completely agree ,.i acually had the high score at 80,060 albeit very early on ,back to 35 now ,which is fine when you are talking about a few thousend points ,.But 15k ,i dont think so.
I will be curious to see where ppl are overall in Rio when the dust settles .Having said that Rio is where i got hooked and its amazing how familiar u become with every nook and cranny of so many levels and even how a particular player will score on a given level ,and as long as ppl like yourself and countless others i think atleast in the nest there will not be many bad scores getting through the cracks …:)

Rank: Master Slinger with 5895 points
By HKG (@hkg)

When I started to play the Bonus levels, I thought maybe it’s time to test how far I could go. So I gave myself an ‘objective': ranks within 10 for each level, and within 5k of the top scorer.

I always use manu as the reference (well, he is the top player!). So when I reached 95k for Smugglers Plane Star #18 (when manu’s score was 97k), I thought it was good enough so I moved on to other levels. However some times later Rockland got 101k. Because of my own ‘pledge’ and that I trust his score is achievable, I set out to beat his score. And I finally came up with a beautiful strategy that gave me 106k! I was really really pleased with myself. The moral of this story is if it was not Rockland who got 101k, but some other lesser known/credible individual, I would not spend as much time as I was to improve my score, and I probably never came up with that strategy, and the leaderboard would be a little bit less competitive. I hope my score would inspire someone to beat me — this type of positive competition is where the real fun is.

So in my view a bad score affects not only the fairness, but also indirectly, how much fun we get from our play.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5895 points
By HKG (@hkg)

@amslimfordy, this is one of the very few levels where one can determine a cap to the maximum score. For the majority of levels, no form of analysis can disprove a high score because of the probabilistic nature of the game. I therefore hope you can reconsider this case.

Personally, there is no compelling reason for me to pursue further on this, since the score has no effect on my position at either the episode or the total score level. Having said that, I hope I can contribute and help make this a fair platform for all contestants here.

Thanks again.

Hey @amslimfordy, I don’t know if you’re the right person to ask but I just noticed that I don’t have the Golden Beachball episode in RIO. Is this a separate purchase or something because I don’t have it in RIO or RIO HD. I’m sorry if this isn’t the place to ask but I can’t find anywhere else to pose the question.

Since you’re on an iPad, if the Golden Beachball levels haven’t shown up, it’s probably due to the fact that you havent captured the beachball. It’s under the slingshot on Beach Volley level 6-13.

@amslimfordy I know Market Mayhem is fairly new, without a lot of users entering scores, so how valuable is it to flag a score that seems suspicious? I’m not talking about wildy out-of-whack scores but rather ones that are 6-10k above everyone else. Do you need some time to pass or more scores in to be able to judge maximum score range on a level? There are very few comments from top scorers on the walkthroughs or screenshots posted for verification. I don’t want to waste your time checking flagged scores when it’s really too early on to tell if it could be legit. Thanks.
