Angry Birds Classic has received an update to v6.1.0 that adds Mighty League. Play in the leagues and climb all the way from Glass League to Master League to show the world how good of a flinger you are. Also, the Mighty League has its own anthem which is an Angry Birds remix of the soundtrack “Sandstorm” by Darude (it’s so epic, in my opinion). The update is out now for Android and iOS.
Good news for iOS users – Angry Birds Classic is now free to download. That’s right, you can now enjoy over 500 levels of pig popping action free of charge.
From Google Play:
Introducing: The Mighty League! The social way to play your favorite levels!
Compete with your friends for high scores in three levels every day, and climb to the top of the Master League!

Not fair.I have the full version but on iOS
Not fair ? iOS users always get soft launch games as TNT, Holiday and Blast. This is not fair with Android users. You will got this update this week on iOS probably but Android users won’t play those games this week.
@awesomepow and @filipersr I’m on an Android device and was able to update ABO, so it’s available to everyone.
Yes, i got that update. I’m saying for @awesomepow that is fair iOS users lose your superiority few times because Android players won’t get those three soft games (TNT, Holiday and Blast)
No, it’s not, @sweetp. You are simply one of the lucky ones that got to try the update early. In my case, however, I updated the game by installing the newest .apk of the game that my friend sent me. The update is not yet visible in my Google Play.
I just checked google play, no update for Angry birds Original (or any other version for that matter 7:11 pm eastern US).
Ah, yes @mighty-red-1 I did get lucky. When I read @birdleader‘s post in the Forum , I looked at my list of apps and games in Google Play and saw that I could update the game so I did!
It takes awhile to get used to replaying these old levels again, but it is an entertaining change from just opening a level and flinging away.
Ok. @filipersr You are probaly right.
iOS has it too since yesterday.
Good thing we still have goal and ace fighter.
2 out of 5.
The update has just appeared for my iPad :)
D o e s a n y o n e k n o w t h e n a m e o f t h e s o n g ?
Thanks for the link, but my previous comment was more of joke. a reference to how people will ask for the name for an unknown song on Youtube, to which some might reply “Darude-Sandstorm”
Haha lol, yeah seen those comments quite a lot on the internet
Great, another game with the deformed birds
I like the movie design but they should be out of the original games.
…So, in essence, the Daily Challenge located here, only with Classic levels and — as with Friends — leagues.
Smooth move, Rovio. If this were implemented years earlier, I wouldn’t be so quick to call it a blatant ripoff. But now? I’m practically forced to.
@justadoo444, you can choose to not play in The Mighty League, which is the same as Seasons’ Pig Challenge.
I’m just griping over it’s inclusion.
Just doing that doesn’t really reveal much about your status on actually playing the update, doesn’t it?
(Not being a jerk here, or meaning to be. Just revealing a truth.
Now, let’s stop before this gets to be a Comment-Area Conversation.)
Another game with the league stuff and daily challenges? Urgh. :(
Apparently Rovio just can’t stand it when their games have a definite ending.
It isn’t kind of update I was waiting for. :(
Not in Original, not with Movie designs, finally not without fresh content.
Looks that after adding coin system everywhere, now every game will have a league (with Movie designs).
I’m going to miss it, just like Pig Challenge. Too many leagues to do anyway.
Where’s this long awaited Revolution? Someone still remember about it? Neither AB2, Movie or this update are the 3rd part.
The possibility to deactivate PU’s in the regular levels seems to be gone.
@gladvold Yikes! They did that on Seasons too. Might be better to stick with the old version, at least untill they release a new level pack. This league rubbish is not my cup of tea.
So what’s the point of this Mighty League? Do we get exclusive rewards or something?
A new way to play the old levels, great way to reintroduce the original game.
@wrw01 Honestly speaking, if I have to play the old levels, I’ll play the old levels and they lack this gimmicky system which is better.
It’s just another excuse to introduce more IAPs and nothing else; that’s the point.
@abginebird our local markets have added this update. What the heck!?
No matter when or what, our local markets are always up to date :-)
(and curiously, sometimes out of date :-P)
Im on android I cant get the update on play store
I played some levels in the league and still don’t like it. Some notes (if someone without the update want to read):
-There’re 7 leagues, classic Glass, Wood, Stone, Bronze, Silver, Gold + Master.
-To complete Glass league you need to collect 3 stars in 5 days, Wood league needs 4 stars in 5 days, Stone 5 stars in 5 days. Don’t know about further leagues.
-Since Wood league there’re relegations. Players from Wood need to complete 1 level to avoid relegation, players from Stone need 2 levels.
-To get a star you need to beat the score on the league’s panel. What’s important, you can beat the score without popping all the pigs, but when you do it within time limit (another great thing…) additional bonus will be added to the score.
-First time you play the tournament, Mighty Eagle (under his more annoying than frightening himself) will give you “Mighty Scope” which is Sling Scope working for 10 mins from its activation. Can be obtained by watching ads (instead of Shockwave).
-The number of players under each league seems to be totally random. There’re showing players in technically unavailable leagues (Bronze to Master as of today).
So if you play, you can’t stop cause of relegation ? Sigh…
@grimmjow On the first tiers, it requiers “just” opening the app once per 5 days and beating 1-2 levels.
Oh, just one more thing: daily you’re getting 3 tickets, one for each level. More tickets are obtainable from Facebook connection, watching ads and real money. Actually I don’t see any reason why someone would pay for it, no rewards on the lower tiers…
I don’t think I’ve received the free 5 tickets from Facebook. Also there doesn’t seem to be a way to disconnect it?
Maybe the number of players in the impossible leagues are the devs and internal testing?
You should be able to disconnect from Facebook itself. Go to Settings and Apps and you should see AB there. You can delete the linkage from there, too (if that is what you are referring to…).
Update now available worldwide I guess. Is now out in the Mexican iOS App Store. Let’s pray that Bird Coins will NEVER be on the original Angry Birds. That’d ruin everything.
I am assuming that the only way to be competitive in the new leagues is to use the power ups? No Thank You!
@burbman It seems to be so. Since I did download the update, I have had a go at it. I made it through silver league without PU’s, but in gold league the scores needed are above the Nest top scores for the respective levels. So there it stops for me.
Got this update and a Rio bug fix update and now they both crash on start up.
It’s not fair. Why the game is been modified when the original angry birds is now free. Does anyone knows that we figured out to restore this issue
Oh yean! I’m almost forgot. I download free angry birds seasons (full version) after october 21 2016 or 5 years and works fine along with bad piggies (game) and angry birds stella
Rovio i have to talk. Is anyone fix the angry birds original who does not downloaded due to being modified
Sorry, this is not Rovio’s website. You should visit Rovio.com to make your complaint.
Someone named Rosa is already in the Master League!
If you’re on this site, congratulations, and we know you cheated! (jk)
I wonder what the one that goes on and off the master league is that?
I wondered about that myself–about Rosa, that is. How could anyone get there so quickly when it had just been released and there’s a timer on it? Not sure I like this one. About the stopwatch…are we supposed to beat the level as quickly as possible? There just wasn’t much instruction on it.
I have posted 7 pictures for the mighty league. Does anyone want to check them out?
Oh, come on! I was like in Bronze League, I don’t remember well, and suddenly I opened the game and I was pulled back to the first league! This is the second time this happens to me! That’s not fair :c
I must just suck… I reached Gold League and I can’t get a star in anything. Burned the rest of me shock bombs, tried earthquakes and powered-up slingshots — didn’t even get close. I have yet to star a Gold League level (much less 6 in 2 days).
Is it hard, or am I just doing something wrong? I’m not buying any power-ups.
Incidentally, the other leagues were all relatively simple, especially if I used power-ups. Then Gold League is a hard stop. Smells like a money grab (once again) to me.
I’ve got the same problem. I cannot make the volcano blow in the gold level. It doesn’t matter how I play it, I can’t get the “star” score in order to progress. I’m not happy. The other levels were easy. I’d like to know who’s using what software to get past gold into master because there doesn’t seem to be a strategy. I’m thinking of just saying adios to the mighty league. The ticket system sucks rotten eggs.
Agreed. Though, if tickets are your only issue, log in every three hours or so and watch two movies — two more tickets. I am not sure it is three hours, but it seems to be something around there. This can get you 8-10 more tickets a day.
But like you say — Gold League is impossible, so tickets are not the issue. I used shocks and power-ups that easily blew away the league before, and then Gold League seems pretty much impossible. Stay classy, Rovio!
Yes, I have noticed that Gold league is easier — I actually made it to the Master League for the first time! Had to use many Quakes and the few Shockwaves I had left, but I made it.
Also got a lot of stickers, and should be able to get most of the remaining ones (except winning the Master League — I’ll never do that).
Did you notice the TNT wall? What a blatant cash ripoff… Buying the ability to stay in a League even if you can’t get the stars you need (or just don’t have time to play). Pretty lame…
Whats the Master league like?
Don’t know, it won’t start until this evening. *smile*
I’ll try to remember to play it (I might forget over the weekend) and report back here. I don’t really care about the Master league because:
a) I am not that good at Angry Birds.
b) I don’t want to waste power-ups.
c) I don’t spend any real cash on the game (like I bet some successful Master-Leaguers do).
d) Stickers I have left to attain involve simply spending tickets and actually failing to get the star. I can do that in any league. *smile*
Like I said, though, I will try to remember to take a look this evening!
Ok, NOW what is the master league like?
I lasted about two seconds in the Master League. *smile*
Very hard. I used earthquake and a Shockwave (level 8 or so) and didn’t even get close on any of the three levels to try. So, I got dropped back to Gold.
Then, after I had gotten a few more stickers and was working on the ones involving using 50 tickets and failing a lot (I’m good at that), the game asked for my birthday and asked if I wanted to save progress from my device to the cloud save. Naturally, I said yes. That nuked a bunch of my stickers, but oddly not the Master League sticker (and I was still in Gold League, meaning it hadn’t reset me to a week ago when I had dropped all the way to Silver).
Needless to say, I’m done with the League in the original AB, which pretty much means I am done with the original AB, I assume (I doubt they will do anything other than “enhance” League play to fleece people for more money and ads…).
Have you checked your Sticker Book? I just noticed it and inside are a bunch of free power ups and tickets. Plus, the Gold levels are pretty easy to defeat if you take your time, study the level and work out a winning strategy. I noticed that BirdQuake is VERY effective on a lot of the Gold levels. It doesn’t start the clock and then you can power up a bit and get in under the time limit. Good luck!
I don’t know if this is will help much but i sent a Ticket to Rovio about this problem and heres how they responded:
and thanks a lot for contacting us!
We would like to inform you that the score shown is the average of all the players scores in that league. We have just made a few changes about League requirements.
In gold league it used to be that you had to be better than 75% of the other players now we’ve changed it to “be in top 50%”.
If there is anything else we could help you with, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

How do you earn the 4th star in these levels?
That’s a different game-the new pig game in Angry Birds Seasons. I have yet to get any “fourth” stars. Today I can’t even get it to log my score period in the tournament. Each time I finish the level, I check to see if it’s logged my score aaaand nope. I’m not happy with Rovio right now.
Whats it like in the Master League? I’m asking because i want to know due to the fact of the Gold League seeming to be impossible to beat.
I don’t know. It must be a league full of cheaters trying to “one up” each other lol.
maybe the people that are in the master league are:
1.People working at rovio (they have their ways).
Unfortunately unless you stick with it every day you end up either not making it to the next level or reverting to the previous level. And one minor screw up and you don’t get a star so you have the option of watching a video or spending money. Video option is only good once every few hours so if you blow that ticket you either spend money or wait. And the score they want you to get is on the high side. I did one today, took out all pigs with one bird and my score plus time still was not enough. I’m really not impressed with the whole thing, plus where’s the payoff at the end. At least with the pig challenge on seasons you get stuff every week. Not really worth the hassle in my opinion.
1. I know right?
2. You get one thing, Bragging rights.
How do I stop it, block it, get rid of it? It pops up after every game and I don’t want to use it. Very annoying.
So I stopped playing and just collected tickets every day, and you can collect bonus tickets by watching video about every hour, after about a week I had 40 tickets. I went through all the levels, and yes at gold your going to have to use power up bombs to get through it, without them you will never make the scores. Gold you have to get 6 stars in 2 days. If you make that to get into the master level you have to register with Rovio or sign in through Facebook. In master level you have to get 3 stars every day or your out and go back to gold level. In the end there is no reward for anything you accomplish, you end up watching a bunch of their “get this app” videos and you burn through all your bomb bird. So all of this is for nothing. I’ve just pretty much wasted my bomb birds and my time, thx Rovio, the least you could have done is give some kind of reward.
How can I get enough points in Master League? Only with power ups?
Any one knows how to get sticker “listen to the bird storm theme”? Got no idea how to get it…
How to get: (can only get once)
Go to the Mighty league menu, and let the anthem play all the way through.
I don’t see this sticker. Where is it and how does it look like?
excellent publish, very informative. I’m wondering why the other
specialists of this sector do not understand this. You must continue your writing.
I am confident, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!
