The power up video is hilarious, can’t even touch level 1 with wingman. LOL.

By Beverlee Flowers

Birds still not flying today after update. Not Surprised no one has posted anything regarding the poor play this am. Not going to waste my time or PU’s here..

LOL ;) Sorry, Tom. Had to laugh. Rovio is at it again. Changing software. I’d like to think that they’re on top of it and desperately trying to weed out the cheaters while leveling out the playing field among mobile vs, desktop users. In the meantime, hang in there. I’m sure another update to restore power to WM and power ups is just around the corner.

For future reference, turn off auto-updates in your mobile settings for ABF. Revert back to an older version of ABF. I’m not sure how to do this, but other veterans will know. Ask them.

For now, don’t buy any power-ups or bird coins till Rovio figures out their mess. Instead, befriend as many friends as you can get on FB and exchange gifts regularly, every day. It is AB FRIENDS afterall. The more friends you have, the more enjoyable the silly game because you get freebie power ups and bird coins daily from your friends. This is the key. Let me say again, many friends are the key.

Sorry for the rhetoric, Tom. I know you already know :) Amazing to me that the answer to most gripes and complaints on Nest is simply adding more friends on FB. Very few believe us :)

Thanks Dana!! @dseufert I had better luck on PC for Level 2. Jingle Sling, Loaded Wingman…along the floor, making sure it get the platform with the crystals. Then BQ…..335K

Level 3 & 4 on PC is a joke, and even worse on tablet!! I am done for this tournament!!

Good news! Rumor has it that Rovio is well aware of their fiasco and they’re desperately trying to fix it with yet another update, hopefully before the end of the current tournament. Hang in there :)

For future reference, turn off auto-updates for ABF on all your mobile or desktop devices. Do this under settings for ABF. In the meantime, here are benchmark scores among those honest, legit players who are still playing on the “old” powerful version of software before last update:

Level 1 max: 325k
2: 348k
3: 244k
4: 255k
5: 329k
6: 355k
Total current honest, verified score: 1828k
Total possible legit score: 1856k
Any scores exceeding these verified scores per level or accumulated are suspected cheats, IMHO.

@mighty-red-1 I think @keijo-leppanen may have made a typo in entering his score for Level 3 in excess of 100k. Please check. Thanks! ;)

To all: hang in there :) Over the long term Rovio will fix their mistakes and ultimately make the silly, addictive game enjoyable to everyone once again. “Patience, grasshopper.” :)

Fixed for me @dseufert after I was prompted for another “latest” update tonight (GMT)

By Lynda

I received a second update yesterday that is a little better, but is still nowhere near the results from the walk through videos.

By Bernie

Hi, i didnt know what was wrong with wingman, , and wastes a lot of coins. Im very mas

It has to play no sense… PU has no power.
And Rovio ignores all mails??.

Plumps ????

By Tippster

I wish someone would post some strategy videos using the updated ABF version. Wingman, even fully loaded, does nowhere near this kind of damage anymore.

By Lynda

Me to, because it is impossible to use these videos as guides after the update last week. I dont even get 1/4 as far with FLW as the videos do.
I am pretty much done playing until they fix it.
I have no idea how to remove the update beside uninstalling the game, but Im sure it will reinstall the updated version at that point. sux :(

Like some others, FLW absolutely useless at the moment, what are Rovio playing at?

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8175 points
By muffer (@muffer)

Finally PU’s are having a proper effect here, not managing to get the right ricochets on levels 2 n 4 as per the PU walkthroughs but at least i’ve clawed back top spot amongst my friends.

The joy of playing is gone … at least for the mobile user! :-(

By wallysboy1

Jakie- how did you get the “old” game settings back. I saw from your walk throughs that your levels look like they did before the last update by rovio. Thanks-wally

@keijo-leppanen Did you accidentally enter an impossible score for level 3? Annoitko väärän pisteet vahingossa? Tarkista. Kiitos!

By Bosenkrieg

My FLM has no power like the videos.

By Kathleen

Absolutely useless since the update. I will no longer be playing. Been playing this game for years, and am totally disappointed. At least I will save $80. To $160. A week. Thanks Rovio.

By Shawn

Download old version for mobile ios here.

I did it on my iphone but turn off auto updates. Played with old version.

Maybe can search more for other ways to get old version on other devices.

By Shawn

I get less free spins on the old version as well as PU. On the new version I can watch a lot more videos for PU and an extra wheel spin.

By Shawn

Just to update on this. After my ABF was updated to the 2.8.0 version, I deleted it and turned off auto updates for the App Store. I followed the link provided and it downloaded the 2.7.0 or 2.6.0 version and installed with no problems. I was able to play on the older versions however decided to change back to the 2.8.0v as I was getting a lot more free PU and extra wheel spins for watching videos. After I did that I decided to do the original steps again but it keeps downloading v2.8.0. They have since come out with the v2.8.1 and WM works about the same as far as I can tell.

If you are however wanting to only use older versions then stick with that and don’t change until you really want a new version.

By Lucille Cloutier

I wrote to Rovio. They said they are aware of the power up problem, and will launch a new update in a couple of days, to correct the problem.

Good news! Thanks for the legwork.

Does anyone know if you go back to an older version if you lose your coins and/or power ups?

By Andrew J K Wardrop

Well that was a waste of using power ups,at first I thought it was me,Thanks Rovio for wasting my money,waste of time this level

Up to now not passed, PUs still have no strength. Thus one does not handle with customers. Find very unfair and also unprofessional from Rovio. But if it is about money, probably spoils almost every character. ?
