• TWICE already this morning the Arena has frozen at the point where I should be watching a video for an extra bird!!! Once at the fifth round and now again in the SEVENTH! I only need 100,000 points and this set of 500 feathers will rank my bird up to a 12. Everything is pulsing but can’t select. The first time I gave up and tried selecting…[Read more]

  • I’ve been away from most of Rovio since they ruined the Arena in AB2 for many of the reasons I see here. Found Mighty League today about 3 hours before the end of day so I played the first 6 levels (2 leagues.) my question – The display box for the league shows 4 jumps to make it to the slingshot. At which point I assume one earns something for…[Read more]

  • I promise to catch up on my reading later so I’m probably going to repeat what others have already said. My email has blown up with forum notifications, lol.

    Ok – I was lucky to get in to Arena because I watched the countdown to the week turned over. I had over 150 before anyone else joined so I saw this as an opportunity to earn back one of my…[Read more]

  • Hi @deaftalk and @chucky-2 – I just sent friend requests so I can send you each a message. Good luck this week!

  • @adbjester – wow, I was happy with my 100 points in my personal league, but 600+ in one day – you are my idol! It dawned on me when I just ran out to Dunkin Donuts, that any of us who had early access will be shuffled into new leagues together so I’d better hit things a little harder if I want a promotion.

    Good luck, all.

  • I can’t believe that yesterday was the day I tried my experiment of watching the countdown to the week change because it let me in (mentioned last night in another post.) In Massachusetts, USA btw. I’ve been wondering why no one else in my tournament had ZERO stars. Had I not WASTED my surplus of tickets (about 40) trying not to get demoted I…[Read more]

  • Correction. My star rank is 54 with 271 of 275 earned toward 55.

  • I tried something this week. I opened the Arena and watched the countdown of the last two minutes. About ten seconds after it hit zero I saw my finishing place, got the gems and immediately saw Free Entry. The problem is (imagine that; there’s a problem) my phone got a notification and closed out the game. It didn’t reset to “Paused” like normal.…[Read more]

  • Well NO one gets demoted. People report this every week. “Was in 14th place and didn’t get demoted guess they aren’t doing that.” Well guess what! THE BASTARDS DEMOTED ME THIS WEEK. I barely played because, well we ll know why – Rovio has made the arena miserable and I hate it. Then on Friday I played up from 15 to 12. Then Saturday I lived my…[Read more]

  • Judging by the end of tournament placement Rovio should be noticing that people are barely playing. Instead, for the start of the new week, EVERY MATCH IS A NAIL-BITER! Starting right out of the gate. By the third match (aka the magic loss match) I had the “one pig out of reach of any bird that game deigns me worthy of receiving. All while my…[Read more]

  • So my only hope of winning the 7th match of a streak is to bring at least a Duck and a Chili. Since I have no chilis I knew I’d need to play the daily challenge. I’m also within 20 stars if being demoted out of Diamond and I will NEVER WIN ANOTHER ARENA so that’s a permanent situation. After THREE HOURS OF CONTINUOUS PLAYING I STILL HAVEN’T EVEN…[Read more]

  • I’m glad to hear there are still people with birds in the 8-9 levels. I was beginning to think I was the only one. Someone mentioned Terrence. Hunh yeah, big lumbering ox Terrence. Everywhere else he’s powerhouse but in the Arena? A limp noodle. Useless. I had ONE day when I couldn’t play (writing deadline) and woke to discover I’d gone from 4th…[Read more]

  • There’s a trick that is used by shopping mall developers. When the mall is first built there are fewer than normal parking spaces painted into the parking lot. It’s so a shopper feels that it’s so easy and comfortable from the moment s/he pulls in. Subliminal manipulation. THEN, after a little time, the spaces are repainted with the intention of…[Read more]

  • So it’s about 12 hours before the end of the tournament week. I have 442 stars, the most I’ve EVER obtained in a week, but am in 11th place. Almost demotion territory. To earn ANY pearls here, I’d need to win a minimum of another 100 stars. And that’s assuming mister 544 and everyone near him play nothing today. To earn first place, I would need…[Read more]

  • So I figure I’m owed 3 Sardine Cans, 3 Hot Peppers and 2 of whatever the Green thing is. Oh, yeah, and the gems I wasted having to “Play On” when I should have been able to use the last of the Sardine cans for a Game 7 in a steak for 500 Red feathers. Had the Sardune Can not disappeared I’d easily have won. What burned me even more, the last can…[Read more]

  • After, frankly, far too much time and energy spent thinking about this game I’ve come to the conclusion that the sad, sad bottom line is this:

    For all the struggle to “Rank Up” our birds the normal player will NEVER REAP ANY REWARDS FROM THR INCREASE! Because of the “algorithm” used to select our competitors, we will ALWAYS fall behind the people…[Read more]

  • Not Terry Star but Turkey Star in Diamond League. If I knew who it was, and if s/he is here, I’d say Thank You!

    As for today, I’m thinking that if a player hits some magic number of saved Arena Tickets that player will not win again until the number has been depleted to below the threshold. I won a 7th round to complete a street today then lost…[Read more]

  • Well mark it on your calendars. I fear that the SSDD has returned!
    Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at about 6:45pm I got slammed with many of my old favorite bullshit circumstances four rounds in a row. It started when I got to the 100 feather reward in the streak.

    It began with:
    1. Unlikely Survival of a Lone Bird and then
    2. Competitor Behind Me By 1…[Read more]
