Matilda glitch level. Got 306K on bluestacks when normal scores with near total destruction range from 260-265K. Strategy as follows:

1.) JS + KS – Sling chuck to pop as many upper red and yellow balloons as possible.

2.) JS – Sling chuck to pop 2 lower ballons holding the tnts.

3) JS – Matilda to top ice structure releasing egg which somehow triggered glitch points.

4.) JS + FLW – Sling FLW to clean debri on floor.

@dcp77 In our “discussion” recently, I forgot to thank you here for sharing your strat. So, thanks! :) I did similar. On iPad Mini with PUs – all birds plus WM for 264k (no glitch):
1) Chuck+Jingle (no PUs) just underneath upper trampoline to take out as many red and yellow balloons as possible;
2) Chuck (still no PUs) maybe just slightly lower to get yellow balloon on left corner holding up collapse of the sky tower. Most everything should be gone including all pigs. Before the level times out on you…;
3) Matilda+KS on max arc. Drop egg-bomb at the last moment to clear everything on top. (Some have reported the “Matilda glitch” on this shot);
4) WM+PP on medium to medium-low arc to mop up debris on floor.

Non-glitch scores on this level may favor PC over mobile by about 10k points, toward about 275k. Scores above 275k are suspected “Matlida glitch” scores, IMO. –MB :)

@dseufert I think your score of 264K is about the max non-glitch…I have played this level many times on mobile/bluestacks and get the same destruction for my 262K as my 273K but the 10K difference you mentioned above are glitch points. Now my 306K and the 323K you mentioned below are 40K-60K glitch points as in the past December holiday tournaments which there were substantial variations in the glitch point result…I just scored 395K on level 5 and will post strategy soon…I will probably just enter my 273K for this level but am waiting to see what others will post if they do indeed get about 275K. Keep up the good work!

@dseufert mobile definitely has the advantage here. Here’s my screenshot for 252K: ABF 197-5
We have about the same debris left yet there is a 12K difference.

Also try this shot for #3: bouncy sling, use the egg to clean up the debris in front of the sling and have matilda hit the top left corner of the glass on top.

Strat about the same as @dcp77, except I did not accelerate the 1st bird and used GS for the last bird/WM. Tried the level on Thursday on PC and noticed that players were getting 20-30k more than my PC score. Switched to BS with game version 2.1.3 and got my score on the 2nd try of my PC strat. Have not played the level again.

I call sour grapes–again :) Glitch scores are not allowed to be posted on Nest because they are random and unpredictable/unrepeatable by all players. And they seem to occur only on certain platforms (especially BlueStacks lately with Matilda). According to Rovio, the “Matilda glitch” is not a bug in their programming, but a glitch in BlueStacks and how it reacts to Matilda. I’m unsure if this is entirely true, but I play almost exclusively on iPad and have never once experienced a Matilda glitch. Oh, well. All of us Nesters are on the honor system to post honest scores, not glitch scores :)

@dseufert in the past few months glitch scores have been allowed…what score do you propose I post? It is my belief that any score over 265K likely contains glitch points. I.e. what is the maximum legit score?

@dseufert seems if someone accidently gets a glitch score they are dishonest according to your post?

@dcp77 Zeek, you silly :) I didn’t mean to ruffle your feathers. On the contrary. All in jest :) Top “legit” non-glitch score on my FB list of friends is currently 274k. Then it jumps on my FB list to 323k by a trusted, honest friend who called the glitch upon himself. He won’t post that glitch score on the Nest!

Same a few weeks ago. Our friend on the Nest, Xpogi, was quick to announce his unreasonably high score as the “Matilda glitch.” He didn’t post that high score but instead posted a very nice high score non-glitch. Same as you today. You announced your glitch score of 306k. Thank you for doing that. You’re an honest player.

At the top of your leaderboard where you post your scores here on the Nest, you may see this:

Squawk! The Angry Birds Friends Leaderboard is open to Power-Up scores. Scores obtained with the aid of third party plugins or glitches are NOT ALLOWED….

In the past, glitch scores were never allowed by the Nest. They may have slipped past Sal and other Nest admins simply because it was nearly impossible to police or screen through every glitch or non-glitch scores posted on the Nest.

So, that leaves us Nesters up to the honor system. It’s kinda like golf. You’re not playing against anyone else but yourself. Sure, you can “glitch” or cheat in your foursome or tournament, But convince your own conscience of what? There’s been many times in golf tournaments where I swore I shoulda stayed home and played with myself :)

All in jest. I’m still in the top ten on the Nest for this year’s ABF tournament so far :)

@dseufert Oh lordy MB u b long winded ehh? This is what Game theory is:

Say, do you know
where the most beautiful flowers grow?

On the clear and crystal water’s face,
lilies make their grace.

On the dark and murky slime,
magnolias climb and climb.

On the soft and gentle slopes,
daisies pin their hopes.

On the hard and rocky ground,
rhododendrums can be found.

Now, do you know
where the most beautiful flowers grow?

Where each is free
to choose what suits each best,

And proud to show
which passed survival’s test.

Hope this helps you see where the scores for this level MIGHT be by the end of next week!

I steered away from glitch scores and got annoyed when the cheaters returned in my league after I passed 300k in L2. Then I decided to go for them as well. I did not enter my L6 glitch score here. Glitches are however possible on ALL mobile devices and not only BlueStacks. This has been communicated to Rovio many times in the past with proof as well. It relates to the spot where you drop the bomb and it IS repeatable. It is easier to repeat it on BlueStacks though because you have more control aiming with a mouse. Most pro players try very hard to get max scores and an exact pixel that you aim from with any bird can make a difference. Then you have variables to activate a bird (accelerate Chuck, drop Matilda bomb, detonate BB etc.). A friend shared his L2 spot with me and I can repeat a FLW shot with Wood Chipper sling for a 307k score from a specific spot. That is the same as repeating a bomb drop of Matilda at a specific spot. We are not at fault for getting glitch scores. The programmers are at fault for not fixing it and branding us legit players as cheaters.

Jingle sling with KS. Chuck through higher pink balloons and will also cut through yellow. If ornaments don’t cause the TNT to blow, use second Chuck. Matilda with steep arc to top, blowing off glass and candy. Wingman with PP to mop up debris on bottom.

level 6 : no power 216.190 k

power up 251.610 k

use 4 birds
using the unique tree slingshot , Send a bird to the top , king sling , Send a bird to a balloon , Send a bird amid the rubble , using wingman ,
power potion , Send a bird to the rest of the rubble

By Quilly

Variation for android. On this platform the first Chuck will not do a great level of damage but does loosen the pile. Follow the rest of the strat, but do not use Ks, but use BQ at end. Top pile will slide off. WE with PP.

@dseufert There isn’t much we can do about it. I don’t see how we could implement a reasonable and fair policy. The same applies to the mobile/PC discrepancies in my opinion, to a lesser degree obviously.

But I’m always open to suggestions. :)

@sal9 and @dseufert with obvious major glitches on this level why not just cap the threshold limit at 277K? Else some players are getting penalized from not entering in their happenstance glitch score.

@sal9 and @dseufert LB looks good…yes Sal I can empathize with you that trying to figure out the best threshold for each level each week especially when there are glitch levels maybe just too much and thus, glitch scores may have to be allowed from here on out…i.e. I doubt anyone on the planet could keep up with trying to set the proper threshold for levels with glitches.

I don’t think that glitch scores should be accepted not everyone is able to use that. I haven’t seen or even got a Matilda glitch score. Is this glitch only coming through Blue Stacks? @maiasatara I share you pain in AB2 Arena battles. It’s getting downright frustrating and it’s getting to the point where I might put in where Angry Birds Go and Bad Piggies are…uninstalled.

I just want to say thank you to players who are choosing NOT to post a glitch score even if they are obtaining one. For some reason Rovio @bankler seems to be willing to allow this Matilda glitch to continue unchecked (I don’t believe the “blue stacks reaction party line for one second.) Especially while they are going OUT OF THEIR WAY to remove quirks in AB2 – occurrences that are available to everyone and do not affect scores but just make it feel like you can advance (removing red gifts entirely and reprogramming levels that gave high percentages of gifts and generally making the Arena an outright misery.) Since all their recent decisions seem to favor whatever side gives them more money in betting they are getting a cut from bluestacks in order to let those players keep an advantage. I love everyone here at The Nest but am NOT a fan of Rovio right now. So again, thank you to those who play with integrity; I appreciate competing with you!

the problem with these glitches is, that you sometimes don’t know if you get one or not. of course, in level 6 this week is no doubt, but sometimes you have small glitches and you don’t even realize you had it :( the other thing, this problem started already 3 month ago, and till now rovio was not able to fix this problem. maybe they don’t want??? because people has to search for it, to keep up with the best. search for it means, lots of pu’s needed, means, they hope more people will buy more pu’s ;) i guess rovio is not much interested to get rid of this problem, and we simply have to live with it, or stop playing … at least for me that’s no option, i’m too addicted flinging birds :D

By Shawn

The problem I have found is that Rovio is too inconsistent in how they deal with glitch scores. Some weeks I am moved to impossible groupings, other weeks I am not.

Just last week I hit a great non glitch score the first 48 hours of a new tournament starting and was moved into a group with ridiculous high scores. I emailed them and complained and was moved back because I had done nothing wrong. What they told me was that I went over the limit they set early on and as the week progresses it was adjusted up so I was moved back.

For me it’s not worth it to hit glitches because if I am moved for that week then I am screwed.
