Hi Friends, where is the “No Powerup” walkthrough?

Rank: Avian Overlord with 16915 points
By Mighty Red (@mighty-red-1)

Due to the fact that practically all nesters enter power-up scores in the AB Friends leaderboards, and the fact that non power-up walkthroughs have low popularity compared to their power-up counterparts, we’ve decided to stop uploading no power-up walkthroughs.

By MaryLynn

Hey, wait a minute! There are still plenty of us (I should hope!) that do these without power ups! We’re the ones who could use some help! Those who rely on power ups to run up their score should be the ones fending for themselves!

Well said, MaryLynn. It is easy to get the highest score when using powerups. But it’s serious to get three stars without powerups.

By swjacob

I agree with MaryLynn and NoPU; it’s much more challenging – and rewarding – to get 3 stars with no power ups. Please bring back no power up guides!

By Joseph Hornick

I agree, MaryLynn. Your decision is just like the tax code,if you
have enough money we will provide walkthroughs for you.
If your older on a fixed income, or a job that just about gets food on the table your SOL. Catering to the upper 1%. I know now that this is a business site, you need to make money, then how about re-evaluating the price of power-ups. Be more reasonable, even the biggest casinos have nickle slot machines. A business consideration, “Do I want to make this bird X-amount and sell to 25% of the players, or do I want to make this smaller X-amount and have 85% of the players buy?”.

No Joseph, this site and all content are free. You just have to advertise you do not have to pay to visit this site. Providing complete solutions is a free service that you do not have to pay. But you pay for every powerup you use in the game.

By Joanne

It’s the alrighty dollar and how much you want to gamble.. I bought this game personally and to me all it is now is how much momeynhtyenmke off you. I might just pull the plug then again why should I, it’s mine..

By Me

Any one else having problems , I don’t see any other players. I’m the only one that seems to be playing according to rovio

By Dassem Ultor

Same thing with me. It is now 6:30 PM Eastern standard time in the United States and I’m the only one in my league,

By Eric

Me too

By Laurie J

What {Admin Edit} baloney ! I love to learn it without the power ups !

By Jane

PLEASE give walkthroughs for those of us who try to play with skill. I didn’t speak up when you squashed the games from one week to three crummy days, not enough time to build up the knowledge to win the game, but now you’re taking away the hints to help us? Are you TRYING to drive people away from Angry Birds?

Rank: Explosive with 2430 points

Of course more people enter PU scores – non-PU scores can’t compete so there’s no point entering them.
And where’s the celebration of skillful play rather than just throwing money at the game?
Or is it because Rovio are making the levels so that it’s virtually impossible to get 3* on some without using PUs now so it’s getting more difficult to produce the non-PU 3* videos?

Rank: Champion with 3885 points

C’mon!!! I don’t use PU and I should have the option of whether or not I choose to use them

By Gene

That really sucks I use non-power up every week.

By Rick Sneed

oooooooooooooooooh wow first i loose 435 aprox coins plus i have on a few occasions purchased coins never got replaced not everyone uses the power ups to get through levels really come on put it back the way it was

By Jacqueline

I do not use power-ups as I enjoy finding the solutions without them. Please do not take them away from those of us who would rather think for ourselves and sometimes need a little help, which does not always make things any easier.

By Lani Fleming

NOOOOOOOOOOOO! I only do non powerups and always come to your site to see how I can do better. PLEASE do not take away the non power up there are still a lot of us out there that rely on the help!!!!!!!!

Dear Mighty Red,
please don´t stop “No Powerup Walkthroughs” .
Please don´t.
I play just plain. Without any Powerups or Slings, Earthquake and whatever else.
Many of the players play plain.
On the one hand, they can not buy powerups for financial reasons; on the other hand,
it is more exciting to play without powerups.
So no one can cheat and it’s an honest competition.
Sometimes we also need YOUR tips and tricks to finish a level.
So please consider your decision and please take back “No Power Up Walkthroughs”.

Rank: DaBomb with 285 points
By MaryLynn (@marylynn128)

I agree. And it’s discouraging to play our hearts out on our own to be trampled by those using power ups! Wish we were all on the same playing field.

By Drew

Wow. Don’t candy coat it Mighty Red. If part of you’re reasoning is, “Besides, the levels only last 3-4 days,” then why have power-up walkthroughs?

I play against several friends and I do not buy power-ups, so if I score in the top 3 I consider that a good tournament. When the tournament first starts, and I earn lots of coins by scoring 3 stars, hopefully, that’s not so bad. But right before the new tournament starts, I’m flat broke sometimes, and that’s when I come here to watch a walkthrough video.

If I had hundreds or thousands of coins every week, I sure as hell wouldn’t waste my time visiting this website. What would be the point? I’m sorry to take it out on you Mighty Red, but the decision was unanimous which meant you had a vote. But we puny non power-up users were just outweighed by the power-up users. You could’ve at least see what we thought about it first. If it meant that we had to visit this site more often then maybe we would’ve.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 16915 points
By Mighty Red (@mighty-red-1)

Sorry, but our decision was unanimous and final – non power-up videos for AB Friends are done. The number of power-up users significantly outweighs the number of non power-up users, and that’s a fact, so there’s no reason for us to make videos that very few people find useful. Besides, the levels only last 3-4 days.

Rank: Debriefed with 1420 points
By NoPU (@nopu)

This decision is impossible to believe.
Do you seriously want to exclude the honest players?
Too bad that Barry Hrink no longer exists.
But we can also have our own channel.
Do you really want that?

By Marilyn Cummins

I NEVER use power-ups. It’s a point of honor. This is really disappointing. I don’t think you should go by the number of players who post their scores. I come here to learn strategies for getting 3 stars without power-ups, which to me takes the highest level of skill. No need for me to post my scores.

Hope someone will start up a competitive site and post no-power-up walkthroughs. If you do, link it here.

These levels seem fairly even between PC & Mobile!!

By DribBird (@dribbird)

Yes agreed w/this particular level it is about even. “BUT”…. it still is NOT a even level playing field w/a large negative % overall, ..period. All levels must & should be factored in as EVEN ACROSS THE WHOLE GAME/LEVELS. If $ was not involved, then fine. But $ is. When(people)parents or any paying player are shelling out cash on a UNeven playing field. That is when so many other people like myself will bring attention to this ripoff. It is the PU’s UNequal playing actions that is the whole point. Look at the WalkThru player actions. WOW, he goes through anything & keeps on going too. I and so many others cannot duplicate to compete w/inept actions. It is rigged, …period. A buddy has the exact ‘same’ actions the walkthru player has. Darn, I forget what platform. I think its ipad. Anyways, …his score whips my PU’s & scores. I & so many others cannot compete! NOT FAIR! And YES, we all have a choice to PAY to PLAY or play just w/out PU’s. That is what makes America great. A CHOICE :-)… . …peace

Nice scores, as usual, @terribletom If you get a chance, please share your strats, pics, or videos. You know I don’t mistrust you. But in light of recent events and a ton-load of comments, very few seem to be sharing their strats, which is, afterall, the purpose of this forum :)

To everyone… kindly share your strats, please. I’m interested in your strats, not commentaries on how “evil” the Nest or Rovio may be perceived, please :)

@dseufert My appologizies!!

Level 1 PC BQ….which brought the upper structures down. Bone Sling,ks/scope, I sent down to the lower debris pile. Jingle Sling, black bird into the stone and TNT. Bone Sling, Big Red, into the lower left. Bone Sling PP Wingman to bumper pad, and clears out lower left. 346k

Level 2 PC. Jingle Sling FLW…I aimed for the block left side of the block of wood on the right side of the lower platform. Cleared out bottom…..BQ…Middle structure toppled right and clipped the TNT. 287K

Level 3 Android Tablet, FLW at reduced power, into upper cavity, so wingman bounces out lower cavity. Jingle Sling, Black bird to upper right structure (Ice block) 320k

Level 4 Android Tablet….BQ…Upper structure must fall

Jingle Sling Black Bird to edge of upper left platform. Need to clear everything down!!

Jingle Sling Orange Bird into debris pile. Bone Sling-PP Big Red to sweep bottom. 307k

Level 5 PC. Bounce Sling FLW….Aim point is just above the joint in the lower left wood. BQ when it hits bumper pad…..should bounce up to upper platform, and back into pit!! 332k

Level 6. PC Jingle Sling-Scope….send White bird to far right taking out the wood holding the pyramid….will start rolling left, falling debris pushes lower large pyramid left. Once it clears…BQ!!

Jingle Sling. Both black birds into the diamonds/stone on right side. Bone Sling FLW……to bumper pad to sweep the left side. 513k

This is how I got my scores….

Another possibility for Level 6. PC….Bounce Sling/FLW…..on an angle, BQ…..Wingman should bounce up to stones/gems, and if lucky enough back to the left. If the BQ works, upper left pyramid, should roll right. 215k

I have seen scores of 222k using this method!

By Proffgram

I agree with those who believe that pure skill and many hours of practice honing skills should be rewarded. Pure power is easy. Finesse, strategy and aim are what angry birds should be about.

Rank: Debriefed with 1420 points
By NoPU (@nopu)

Well, said Proffgram, said well. There is no ability to use a powerup to get three stars. Sometimes it is so easy to bomb everything. But it is a skill and prudence to get all points without any help. Just by making yourself. Why do they exclude us?

By Drew

I totally agree. Where’s the fun in loading up with a bunch of power-ups, pulling it back, and letting her fly? I bet you don’t even have to aim much. I’m not sure if I’ll be playing this game much longer.

Oh, I’m sure they search youtube night and day waiting on someone to post a walkthrough, just so they can take it down.

By BillL

OK, another bookmark to be removed from iPad and PC browsers.
A sad state when an ad supported site can’t put up videos for Non-Power up walk through. Especially since the regular contributor that does them is most likely willing to continue to do so!
So, money for Rovio ( power up purchases), and money for this nest site(numerous ads) .

I’m sure there are more non pu users that view the non power up videos then the nest ad. realizes. They just don’t post their scores, feeling that the leader board is geared towards the powe up user. Very disappointed in this decision.

I really wish I could go through giving everybody a big Thumbs up like you do on Facebook. I’ve seen some really good points being made. Disappointed big-time.

@rambleberry and @campingled have faithfully and painstakingly created the non-PU and PU walkthrough videos, respectively. They have done this to help all players for free. They’re not paid, but volunteer their time. They don’t get enough appreciation or gratitude from most of us. I think they both deserve a big THANK YOU,

Although the decision to exclude non-PU walkthrough videos on Nest seems final, I have a hunch that if you kindly ask @rambleberry directly, she may post her non-PU videos for you anyway, or at least give you a text description of her strats. She’s a sweetheart, a very kind soul :) (So is Granny, @campingled :)

I think that most of us who use PUs get them for free, that is, they don’t pay Rovio a single cent for in-app purchases of bird coins or PUs. Instead many of us veteran PU users have at least 300 friends or more with whom we exchange daily gifts. The game is AB FRIENDS, afterall. The more friends you have, then the more freebie bird coins or PUs you can collect. You can join us, too, if you want. Read my post in the AB Friends forum here on the Nest.

By the way, the use of PUs is not considered cheating. Many gaming companies sell in-app “tools.” It’s called capitalism and they’ve done an excellent job! If you don’t like what’s on TV, then change the channel or turn it off altogether.

Just my two-cents. Peace to everyone :) And special thanks to Rambleberry for creating the non-PU videos for all these months, maybe even years!

You’re right, Makin (@dseufert). People in general find it easier to complain than compliment. So, my hat’s off to @rambleberry and @campingled for the time and energy they put in for each tournament. And while I’m at it, @terribletom, thank you for your suggestions as to which platform seems to prevail. And couldn’t leave you out, Makin, for your level headedness ;) (For the record, I’m not friends with any of the above mentioned, just a retired grandma who plays for enjoyment in a Friends group of only 2 other players.)

In any case, you were my first “friend” on Nest and FB. That was 5 years ago, was it? Can’t overemphasize the new friendships over the years. Who cares about top score? Nice if you get top score and share, otherwise FRIENDS is top priority to me. Just saying :) Thanks for the years of friendship, Tom, you first, and then so many others! :)

I agree with your comment. Enjoyed it better before those introductions. I always start the tournament with the plain sling. After I 3star all levels I start playing with the other slings. Then I come to the nest to watch videos. The last couple of weeks I started using the power ups, only because posting scores that were always at the bottom got to me. Enough said.
But would like to say a big “Thank you” to all the volunteers that maintain this site. Your time and sacrifices are appreciated. Thanks for all you do!

I find the non-PU videos more useful than the PU videos. I play 2 users – 1 PU and 1 non-PU. I actually put in more time playing the non-PU version. I don’t have to worry about how many PUs I have or if I am going to run out. Also, it can be more difficult to get 3 stars on some of the levels without using PUs. More challenging in a lot of ways!!!!

I also liked the non-power-up walkthroughs. I have enough power-ups from friends’ gifts but I like to spend time practising without power-ups to hone my skills. Sometimes I just can’t get three stars without help and found the non power-up walkthroughs gave me ideas for techniques I hadn’t thought of. I’m very disappointed they have gone.

@ By Eric (and others )

I’m a single person player, I choose to be that way too

I play the game as a non power up player by choice

I happen to like it that way, I’m in Diamond league, I go down now and then, it just means I get more points when I go back up again, extra gold.
Game play is getting your eye in, repetition makes for larger scores, you have to hit a sweet spot if you keep flinging eventually, I use non power plays, my choice, my choice to play on my own too, but I like to SEE how others are doing it, and read the comments too from those with a different view on a game, but lets keep having the BEBEFIT of non powers video’s

By Drew

@rambleberry @campingled Hello. I just wanted to say thanks for volunteering your time to create these walkthroughs. I’ve watched my fair share of the non PU videos over the years that’s for sure. It would be greatly appreciated if one or both of you should ever start posting your non power-up walkthroughs again. I and lots of other players from the looks of it, would be super grateful.

Level 6 – iPad with PUs for 515k. Room for improvement. Not the best score, but still a good one :) Here’s the strat…
1) Matilda+Jingle (no KS) over the top of main heap. Drop egg-bomb on TNT that will push main heap toward the cliff on lower left. In the meantime, spent Matilda will ricochet into wooden support and start the upper right heap rolling off the cliff into the main heap below. Wait until all wooden balls on upper right roll left over the cliff. Then, BQ to start upper left heap to roll off of upper left cliff;
2) Black+KS (still with Jingle) toward center of “cave” on the far right. Should get all diamonds. If not, reset and try again;
3) Black backwards toward TNT on upper left. Manually detonate for max damage. Should blow TNT and send remaining wooden balls to floor below;
4) FLW+Bone or Golden toward trampoline to mop up remaining wooden balls in center and lower left pit.

Yup. Sorry you feel that way, Gracie. I’m saddened. ABF is a great way to meet and make new friends. That’s what it’s all about. FRIENDS. Befriend me, if you want, here on Nest. We can chat in private later. I’ll be glad to share tips and tricks, fully legal without cheating, if you would like. All you have to do is ask a veteran :)

By Gracie

I agree and it is about friends and having a good time, nothing against you this is just very frustrating ive been playing for a very long time very quietly in a corner by myself passing the time with others.
Just if your in this business of providing gaming for people why abandon ship when times are tough if their tired of doing this gaming stuff or bit off more than they can chew since there are so many different versions bring down the site all together.
But these people that are begging, you just have to stop.
And of course T y for the volunteers hard work of course its appreciated.

By doctorjonn

{without reading everything above}

could the people who post the non p/u and p/u videos not just carry on doing what they’ve been doing for years? post both sets still?

if it resolves the bad feelings being generated by ROVIO that non power up players are seemingly being told like naughty children

“you bad non power up players work it out yourselves, the big children will be getting the extra help from now on, and we don’t care for you so fend for yourselves from now on”

it’s a bit harsh, possibly non p/u players may down the line join in with those who have hundreds of friends gifting each other daily and benefiting from the tutorial vids, its been mentioned before about a separate league for non p/u players, please do something for us purist players

What I meant by “a whole ‘nother world” is that there is a closed, private group of professional ABF gamers on FB. A few thousand of them worldwide. They exchange gifts with each other regularly. Most have enough friends and can collect more than enough bird coins or PUs without having to buy them from Rovio. Also, the unevenness among various platforms is not easily leveled because of the nature of different operating systems. To get around this issue, most veterans play on all platforms.

I am a bit inactive in the game lately and only saw all these comments now. I think the short tournaments are the main problem. I only played one tournament during the last 6 tournaments. Thankfully two of my Facebook friends took over the PU videos. @rambleberry woke up at 2 AM twice a week to make the No PU videos. Doing this twice a week for such a long period was just awesome. She is a real star.
