Sorry, but we cannot accept this score, even with a screenshot. It is impossible to score over 48,190 without the Double-Bird Bonus bug. Since Rio was released over a year ago, it has been our policy — and users have agreed — that such scores should not be entered on the leaderboards for the sake of competition and fairness.

@amslimfordy, @admins, @sweetp: As Slim said back in July 2012, this level was glitched by the Double-bird Bonus bug and that it was impossible to score over 48,190. This level showed up as todays Challenge (05/13/2016). Shouldn’t this level have been put on the ‘Not for a Challenge’ list?

Plus…there are 23 scores on the leaderboard over 48,190 – up to over 51k as top score.

I don’t recall ever getting the double bird bonus back then but I can pretty much tell that with normal game play using one Red, those higher scores seem rather unreachable.

@admins, @gypsybird there is a way to get those scores without any bug. It is the notorious ‘gift’ box which gave me early in challenge of today a 49210 score. I believe all the scores beyond 48190 involve the ‘gift’ or ‘curse’ as I would rather refer to it.

Quick search&googling didn´t give a clear answer as to what is the (challenge) policy towards the gift/curse 3k bonus?

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17065 points
By GypsyBird (@gypsybird)Score: 48,180

@micromax – there must be an extra special ‘gift box’ to give more points – I got the ‘gift box’ last night but didn’t give me any points on the game. I do remember the gift box magic points – wasn’t that in RIO 2 levels? I looked around in the Bugs section on the Nest but also can’t see anything about the gift box of points.

@micromax it would depend on when those scores were entered, the gift boxes haven’t always been part of the game. They were introduced with I think the Rocket Rumble or High Dive update, I can’t remember which.
But if they were entered before, I still don’t see where 51k would come from.

By GypsyBird (@gypsybird)Score: 48,180

@micromax thank you so much for capturing the gift box 3k on video! That would explain the higher scores. So this would be a lucky chance to get the extra 3k and an unfair advantage as the box does not show up all the time or for all players either. For @karen68 – if @jonstad got 48,310 (that could be possible if he also got the wood crates on the left with the cardboard boxes) and the tidy little gift box (3k) on his play, then that would add up to the 51310 score.

PS – I can’t remember just when those mighty 3k gift boxes started showing up but I know it was after RIO 2 levels started…Jonstad got the 51k score in 3 years ago.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17065 points
By GypsyBird (@gypsybird)Score: 48,180

I should have checked on the RIO 2 date – the first one was Rocket Rumble which released in December 2013 so if that was when the magic box started showing up then that wasn’t how the 51k+ was achieved.

Does anyone else recall if the magic box started sooner – maybe in Seasons? Or maybe in RIO Market Mayhem?

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17065 points
By GypsyBird (@gypsybird)Score: 48,180

So I kept on digging. The Mystery Box (Rovio’s name) is not a bug but a reward – so it either gives a PowerUp token or the 3k bonus points which make that a power-up in a way but player does not have a choice to reject it if the box gets smashed – again almost impossible to avoid popping the box. Just the way the cookie crumbles and unavoidable – lucky break.

By GypsyBird (@gypsybird)Score: 48,180

@admins, I wish we could just edit our responses….sorry for more.

The Mystery Box 3k does not show up on the final score as a Powerup so it should be allowed since it was a planned addition by Rovio – and is not the same as the Double Bird Bonus Bug. watch @micromax video.

Rank: Sling God with 33575 points

@gypsybird so if jonstad entered his score 3 years ago then it doesn’t include a 3k mystery box.. @jonstad can you offer any tips for today’s Challenge level?

I know there’s been a lot of discussion of these mystery boxes before & I thought the decision was that scores including them were not allowed, but that could be hard to police in some cases.

By gladvold (@gladvold)Score: 48,180

@micromax In the challenge an additional problem with the “gifts” is that not everyone gets them at the same dates. You obviously saw some today MicroMax, I, for instance, haven’t seen any, not for many weeks. It probably either varies with geographical location, or perhaps according to the platform used – I don’t know. Whatever is the case, I’d say allowing “gift-scores” in the challenge would not be fair.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17350 points
By MicroMax (@micromax)Score: 48,180

@gladvold now that you mention it the ‘gifts’ are indeed very irregular in their appearances and I feel even more hesitant about entering such score. Otoh leaderboards seem to suggest that some such scores must have been entered :-[

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17470 points
By gladvold (@gladvold)Score: 48,180

Indeed, @micromax, I’m sure many such scores have been entered on different levels through time. My impression is that they are allowed, because policing a ban will be next to impossible. Especially on the more complicated levels. From discussions earlier on, it seems some take advantage of the gifts, while some of us don’t. A clear ruling from the @admins would be welcome. (Or a pointer to where it is stated, if it has been made).

By Kathy (@kathy)Score: 48,130

Agreed @gladvold , although i don’t think it’s a matter that some take advanage, is more that some are given the advantage more than others, is not like you have a choice if the box shows up or not, i know when I’ve gotten the box , if i restart the level it reappears.
Definitely need admins to weigh in.

It’s in admins hands to decide if I have a valid score. @admins

Ty for your response @jonstad. Actually it would be interesting to know what was left on the level when you got the score. Weird things do happen occasionally with points. Nothing I have read or seen so far explains how a score of 50k+ can be had without the cursed box on the level as it exists today. However it would not be the first time Rovio have tampered with a level.

And it was always up to @admins to decide one way or the other. Just too bad that Rovio has deliberately made their job nearly impossible.

4 reasons @gumby:
-Nobody else has entered anything above 48180 for the challenge.

-Hoping for the admins to make a policy statement.
-Personal dislike for using power ups and this comes too close for comfort.

By PeeJayDee27 (@peejaydee27)Score: 48,170

Clearly a bit of a contentious level re scoring, but I’d like to add my own comment for what it’s worth. It looks lto me that in “normal” play, there is no possibility of scores above 49K. If you look at how many players have 41,190, this lappears to be a threshold. This is not a level where debris flies off the screen to give hidden or unseen points, and 41,170 – 41,190 leaves little or no debris etc for extra points. Considering that the difference between such normal “threshold” scores and top scores is in the 3K range, and the gift element is worth 3K, this would be the only logical explanation. Hopefully @admins guys will rule on this. I entered a “gift” score on another level before, but removed it as it seemed like a power-up advantage. In hundreds of flings today the gift hasn’t appeared once btw. All that being said, we all know that AB games are unpredictable, and can sometimes produce unexpected and illogical scores! The saga continues lol……….

By Kathy (@kathy)Score: 48,130

@peejaydee27 Just my two cents for what its worth, the gift isn’t a PU , it just gives you one that if used of course it’s not allowed, but it also gives 3k i believe , and Every one gets it the first time they play the level, if they fail to complete the level it comes again, once the level is completed you never sees it again, but i think it counts towards your score because it’s an earned 3k during gameplay due to no cheating or any control of the flinger , if ya get it great, if ya don’t well that blows but every one has an equal opportunity to take advantage of it , if they can.
I’m probably over explaining it but, if you deducted those 3k from what you entered on the leaderboard , your board wouldn’t match your game, know what i mean? I think as long as you got the score fair and square, by just using birds on the sling, and whatever is available in the game play, excluding pu’s your score is fair,, your not adding anything to get a better score, your just flinging at what they gave you.

Hi @kathy, couple of things worth mentioning:
I played this level for less than an hour today and got the gift twice (49210&50850 as scores). I had formerly completed the level for 47550. Nobody else either got the gift today or entered their ‘giftified’ score for reasons I can only guess.

I must agree @micromax ,after reading back through the numerous comments on this ,it does seem an unfair advantage, but still the solution is unclear, should a flinger that gets the gift box deduct 3k from their score before entering on the board? that would seem to be the only solution and then we just have to trust in each other.
there is no way of eliminating levels as you never know when a gift box will come or not.
guess we just have to wait until @admins weigh in on the matter.

@kathy (for some reason your comment to me further up doesn’t show a reply-button, so I’ll reply here):
It is actually a choice. This is what I personally do: When a gift shows up, I pop it (that way it will not reappear after resetting), and then I reset immediately. (If it is a one-birder level like today’s, you must of corse be quick to reset before the level end).

So @gladvold you mean you hit the box then quickly reset so it doesn’t appear again? I didn’t know you could do that, when one shows up on me and i fail the level, it always shows up again. Hmm I’ll try next time to hit it, then reset. I’m sure not many flingers are aware that they can do that, maybe it would be beneficial if @admins made a note of that somewhere, but thanks for letting me know, I actually don’t think I’ve ever had a level where the gift box benefited me anyway usually is just a nuisance, good to know i can get rid of it in that way, thanks:)
