Our strategy for Ragnahog level 14 is shown in the video below. The three birds we use get one star each on their way to 111310.
The first blue is lofted at about 45 degrees to the corner of the ice structure in the middle, a late activation concentrates the force of the three siblings to break and bend the ice and structures to the right. Hopefully you will release the caged bird at the far right with this one. The next blue is thrown a bit lower ot the corner of the second stone structure with another late activation, leaning it over. Now, throw Stella in a high lob to come down on the rune stone at the junction of all the stone planks remaining in the second structure, picking several up and sending them right while knocking over the structures to the left. The Bomb bird is released and all pigs are deceased, so now you three birds on deck for a 30K bonus.
I think the video is quite a lucky shot and difficult to replicate. Most times it won’t knock the right hand side and get bomb bird
ITS MY BIRTHDAY SO IM ALLOWED THE HIGHEST SCORE!!!!!!
@fatboyslick happy birthday pal. Go for that trophy!
Happy Birthday @fatboyslick
Happy Birthday @fatboyslick!
@fatboyslick, Happy Birthday???
Happy Birthday @fatboyslick? This is your level ,go get em’ !
Happy Birthday @fatboyslick Great day to celebrate a birthday. Hope there’s room for 2 trophies. I’ve been celebrating this day for 55 years now myself. Been playing this level for over an hour and yet have duplicated the video walk through. I got 105k yesterday on it (snuck a peek preview) I can’t remember how I did it yesterday tho. Just a tip for anyone after 1st shot; if a piece falls to the left onto the the taller structure for second shot you might as well start over. Almost impossible to push it over on shot two with a piece holding it. Keep a flinging.
Happy birthday @coffeeking ??
??Found 2 trophies for the Birthday kids
@coffeeking @fatboyslick ?
Happy Birthday Fellow Flingers!
@fatboyslick you are certainly ALLOWED the high score, you just have to beat @habanero to get it 8*)
Happy birthday @coffeeking
I hate this level
Happy Birdday @fatboyslick! I’ve got three stars but not a great score – are the little blues a new species or do I need stronger lenses in my glasses?
It’s 08:23 here but the time next to my comment is 12:22 – interesting stuff this time travel! Cannot enter my score yet but just 93260 3 stars.
Apologies for fluke shot… I just used a steeper arc with the blues, splitting late to smash the glass and hopefully blow the TNT.
TNT blowing can split and send concrete walls of central structure left and right… how things tumble is then 100% luck… I watched as the cascade, domino effect, claimed all 6 piggies and released both caged birds giving 5 bonus birds…
I have repeated that first shot once or twice now but the outcome leaves a pig or two and doesn’t release both birds… I am sure this will be yet another @asher trophy by the end of the day, but I cannot complain about a lack of luck today…
Wow, WTG @habanero! Do you by any chance have a screenshot of the aiming of the first bird? My Blues touch the glass but hardly break it, and if they break, TNT is untouched
No screenshot @trishohara but the aiming tactic is basically to split the blues very late and as vertically as possible over the double-glassed roof of the centrepiece… mostly the TNT does not blow but I have had it go off and send the left and right concrete walls flying out a fair few times … the way things fall is then in the lap of the gods… my best score was a clean sweep of piggies and caged birds, but in repeats I have got 2 to 5 piggies and 0 to 2 cages… it is random, it is pure luck… bar for one very bruised but surviving right lower piggy I would have had 132k as I had 77k on the board at that point… so more repeatable than I would have thought, but not going to persist as I think I have been lucky enough already with this one….
thanks. I have to try it
@trishohara That’s what my birds do, one just rolls across the top but barely cracks the glass:(
I don t speak english but I try To explain 1st like the video 2nd no use 3rd at right 4 Between the first 2 towers
Thank you for posting @kadagan This way helped me get above average ☺. And your English is just fine!
I pounded this level repeatedly attempting to replicate the video and write-up to no avail so started working out my own strat just to get three stars, and it sounds very similar so I’ll hijack your comment thread @kadagan and elaborate.
First bird like the video, but the TNT didn’t blow. Second bird, same path, blow the TNT and make a big pile of stones over to the right. Stella goes the distance to that pile and picks up most of it, a bar hits the upper right structure dropping it on the caged red bird below. Our beloved OB kisses the sling and starts to barely rise up. The high lob falls between the front two structures, I activated just as he was passing the Bomb Bird cage. Bomb is set free, and the second stone structure leans left and stones break up pretty well. Red and Bomb remain in the dugout for 20K bonus.
@bernersenn @birdleader another level where I know I checked the alternate strategy box but the thread didn’t turn blue? not that big a deal, but thought I would share the observation.
@knichy please include @sweetp in the future for this.
@admins @knichy @bernersenn Your comment IS marked as a strategy. Child comments (replies) don’t turn blue because of a bug that’s existed for a long time. If you leave a new comment, not a reply, it will turn blue. I’ll revisit this to see if I can figure out the problem.
Oooooh, I didn’t know. Thanks @birdleader – we won’t mention again.
Thanks @birdleader, but I went ahead and flagged @kadagan‘s parent comment as an alternate strategy so @knichy‘s and this entire thread is now highlighted in blue.
I have little to add to the vivid prose of @knichy except:
Will not say anything about the possible reason, but Stella sure is one fickle lil´ bird to try get to behave as one wishes :^D
She is a fickle bird yes she is. Like fate.
“Fate is a fickle bird”
@knichy may i add , if you barely clear the runestones on the first tall structurev and split right at that corner of the glass the tnt blows more often than not?
Thanks @kadagan, I improved my score by 10,000 using your strategy.
124k with 4 birds.
First bird same as the video. Towers 4 and 5 collapse and the disc in tower 4 has to be exposed.
Second send the blues against the disc just to damage it a bit for the next shot.
Third, send stella through the disc. This will often leave her surrounded by stone. If you got a decent outcome on the first shot, she can lift the entire fourth tower. Around 70k is a good score here.
Finally send bubbles in a high arc just over the second tower so he rolls to the left behind it. The further he is to the left the better. Auto-expand to take out the first two towers.
2 birds bonus.
I suspect very high scoring 1-birders are possible but they seem to be quite rare.
Thanks for the strat @angrychicken. 114 so far. How to throw Stella seems to be the key.
@angrychicken Thanks for the strat, i hate this level lol
re: High scoring one birder , see Habanero post above, I’ve tried it for hours on end but with no such luck?
129550 with 4 birds using a variation on @angrychicken strategy.
So Blues 1 like the video.
Blues 2 to weaken the shield.
Then Stella through the shield to the left of the structure, lifting it and almost cleaning the pit. At this point you should aim for 70k+ scores like this.
Then Bubbles between the two left towers, inflating midway through the bottom part.
Here is the final result.
And the highscore screenshot.
@angrychicken Thank you posting your strategy. Worked well to get above average score.
many thx to @angrychicken for the strat. and top-details
here my video:
Did this level last week, and what a pain it was. Pretty well the same as video, but only 108k
Okie Dokie! Its hard to keep track of the admin team and who’s doing what, and I didn’t want to bombard the admin mention. maybe that would be the best thing, and you guys would just figger out who is responsible for what.
@bernersenn @sweetp that was supposed to attach to your comment.
Sorry can’t help myself …. WWWwwwwwwhhhhhhhiiiinnnnneee…..
Each level gets more frustrating than the last!!!!
Puhleeeezeee AngryBirdsGoddess send me a tad bit o luck ??
Hi @kathy – DITTO! This level is hideous!!! But thanks to your tip of flinging first blues to just clear the left tower, I just increased my score by 14K within a few shots. Thanks a bunch :-))
Should have said the tallest left tower,
@peejaydee27 happy that i could help someone improve on this (you chose the perfect word) Hideous level!!
actually this whole episode is quite disappointing ?
Late to the party on this level as Christmas is damn busy this year! Had a 1 Birder for 121k before getting a 4 birder similar to @angrychicken but swapping Bubble’s and Stella’s workload!
As @habanero (Lucky Shot Dude!) says there is 130+ here with a mighty lucky 1-Birder and I’ve already had 10 near misses in a short time……close to a 138k but screwed up the screenshot….but here is how it’s possible……
Nice screenshot @andy-2… been at that exact score, 75k, and stage once, and also a 77k at that stage… with the same piggy surviving… both would have trumped the 127k 1-birder … but not really hammering away to try for a 130k + score… as the next level is more interesting and fun.
Thanks @habanero. Yeah…hardly any debris damage was done around the illusive piggy on that screenshot so would of hoped to have at lest 132-137k if it had all collapsed on the bugger!
I’ve been following @angrychicken strategy except when throwing bubbles I do about half to three quarters speed and drop between the first and second structure I expand just above bomb bird. Tough addicting level. I’m falling behind in days trying to better my scores.
This was a lucky 3 birder. Basically trying to replicate angrychicken strat after bird 2 the shield was destroyed and the 4th structure from left was lying in the shape of an open v. Managed to get ‘fickle’ Stella right in the corner and she must’ve taken steroids as she picked everything up and flung half to left and half to right. This took care of all pigs and freed both birds.
Don’t know if it’s repeatable but as it’s top score for now felt explanation was forthcoming.
Link to score:
Getting the TNT to explode on the first shot is difficult. I needed up using the first two birds to do that. Stella took out the rest of the right side and OB cleaned up on the left to finish up.
124k/1. The bomb bird nearly escaped but sadly remained in it’s cage. Another rinse and repeat.
