Similar but I catch TNT and nail aura of the plannet. Hard to invent anything else so I discovered the same.

I played this like the video.
If the pink bird does not kill the lowest pig you’ll need some luck that he buys it when the ship crashes.
Setting off the TNT is critical for a higher score.

@birdmaniac @earthbound — Anyone else with an above average score. I could seriously use some additional tips here. Just improved my score by a whole 100 pts at most, and still below average. Thanks for your help.

@mvnla2 – basically as per video! The twist is to get the structure to “twist” & “flick” the central trooper into the asteroids & set off the TNT this gives extra points by throwing the rocks rightwards onto the planet, the structure falls rightwards into the atmosphere.

I aimed Leia south of the structure & aimed her beam between the TNT & trooper so that it grabbed the main body, the natural twist, flick & explosion did the rest! Hope this helps & may the force be with you! luck

@mvnla2 – no problem, just sincerely hope it helps. I found that the more central to the asteroids that the top/middle trooper is “flicked” the better the score. My score was purely from experimenting with angle of the beam & the amount of destruction

Hum … I think the problem with the averages is that only the best flingers are entering their scores on the leaderboard. Come on everyone! We need more below average scores so the averages will go seriously down.

I used a strategy identical to a video.
The caused phenomenon is about the same.
The timing when common TNT erupted as for one being different was very only only late.
As a result, I was able to destroy more the piece which had finished falling.

More or less as in video. I directed the tractor beam at the left leg of the spaceship rather than the middle as in the video, but I don’t think that makes a difference to the score. It’s just about being lucky with how things fall on the planet.

Frustrating level. You can do everything “right”–crash the ship, kill all the pigs and explode the TNT–and still end up 4k short of the three-star threshold. After about 8 one-birders with scores between 86k and 89k, I finally got one that (barely!) earned me the third star. When a single brick can make a difference for 3 stars the tendency of these levels to end before all the debris has settled becomes infuriating. It’ll be a while before I come back to this one to improve my score…

I don’t know how many times I got a one-birder with just 2*. If you don’t explode the upper TNT, no chance of 3*. Anyway, when the average score is that close to the 3* level, it spells trouble…

A very frustrating level indeed, my very last *** in the episode. I aimed just below the closest, medium-sized asteroid, barely missing it. The trajectory just touches the bottom tentacle of the thing, pushing it right and down. The tractor beam has no essential function so I use it to pull the middle asteroids down for extra 600 points. Still, it is very rare that everything clicks just right for sufficient destruction.

Death star 2 has been very kind to me so I game back to see if I could top spot on this level where I already 2nd place.

I don’t recall if I used this strategy before but after trying above strategies shortly I started to use atmosphere of the northern planet.

Pretty soon after I managed to send Leia repeatedly to the edge of atmosphere so that she hit the stones and the TNT exploded I was getting 1 birders by pulling the right leg of the tripod. Then couple of times I accidentally pulled the nearest pigfighter and got a new highscore. However it was infuriatingly still 20 points short of top score so I simply had to go at it.

I got plenty of 90-95k and very few above but never 97k until finally just when I was about to give up, everything on the surface of the big planet broke up!!! I’m sure it took at least 3 hours so I stopped playing right there and just entered the score here.

Many, many thanks @micromax!

This level would normally be one of those that just leave me in despair just trying to 3*, but your approach made the whole level more interesting.

My score is nothing special, but at least it is above average at 93,260, and that’s plenty good enough for me!

I couldn’t manage your trick of grabbing the tripod, and pulling the pigfighter never worked for me either. However, I finally managed to send Leia straight into the rocks with the TNT, which was enough to fling everything outward, somehow pushing the tripod and its pigfighter to get caught by gravity and crash into all the pigs below. Hurray!

I’d recommend giving this strategy a try; at least it was more interesting for me (besides which, it worked!). If anyone figures out exactly where Leia needs to be to be able to grab the tripod or whatever to make @micromax‘s strategy work as he describes, please do let us know.

Thanks again @micromax!!

Glad to have been able to help fellow birders in turn. Sorry for not responding sooner. However I do have a good reason since I was about to revisit this level when I had a terrible crash and play the level anytime soon: https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/forums/topic/mouthful-of-feathers-in-absw/

Sadly it seems I’m not gonna play ABSW any time soon again.

So as far as I can remember for my top score:
1. Send Leia over the northern planet at the edge of the atmosphere so that she hits the asteroids exploding the tnt.
2. Pull the pigfighter south of the asteroids as soon as Leia coming from behind the planet can see him. It’s very tight and many times the beam hits the planet or the small rock east of it.

However when you manage to pull the pf it should hit that small rock and blow up sending debris to the north leg of the tripod. That will often cause tripod to turn and get sucked to the surface of the east planet. Usually the southern tower on the planet survives but sometimes it collapses as well and the score can be very high.

Great idea @micromax & I’m bowing at your feet with that great score of yours. I found this level incredibly difficult & time consuming, but with your helpful post just managed 93120 on Android phone to finally move above average after many many days of trying. I almost never move to another level until obtaining an above average score & had to temporarily give up on 6-12 because I just couldn’t manage the additional 200 or so points needed. It seemed I was facing the same thing with this level, only I was even further from above average & I was pretty close to moving on to 6-14 when all of the sudden I must have launched, aimed or tapped a pixel’s width to the right or left & it all came together, much to my surprise.

@junkenmetel, I wish I knew what I done differently this time when grabbing the right leg. All I can say is the launch trajectory looked like this: http://angrybir.de/1giVl2Q.

THX to @micromax finally get the northern route to nirvana. Everything fell well to the right planet, destroying most of the debris there. Some asteroids staying between the two smaller planets.

Tip for aiming point:
Aim Leia, so it looks, as she will miss the northern stratosphere. If you get it right, luck may be with you, so to say ;-)

Thanks for your kind words @Kathy & Co! I only got my current tablet, which enabled making vids of any (AB) game, after the crash mentioned above. So since all my ABSWI scores are permanently gone, I don´t even have it installed on this device.

Should there be challenge on a easily reachable level (in my situation), I might reconsider my position. Until then no vids (or anything) on ABSWI from me I´m afraid.

Here is an alternative strategy: Send Leia a close as possible below the first astroid. Immediately after passing it, grab the big asteroid to the right. Usually the small one will come down too, giving you a 2020 point head start as they crash into the moon. Leia should go on and hit the tripod. The rest depends on chance, but my impression is the TNT will go off more frequently. I raises my score immediately by about 3000 points over the video method.

For those still banging away;
I spent fruitless hours inching my score up, trying the video method. A last ditch before accepting a 2 star score and moving on: voila! Here is how. Send Lea at medium orbit around top planet, grabbing tnt via the small meteor gap. This blows that cluster apart, and they do the work. Enough crash onto right planet to finish pigs there. Several hit the ship and fighters, sending the large one to crash into bottom planet. This resulted in enough destruction for a score of 91750. I was tired of playing by then but with a bit more effort, one day, will work towards 100000.

By Boogerhead

Like many others, I found this level very frustrating. I followed all the suggested strategies and even with many 1 birders, I just couldn’t reach 90,000. I finally got 93,290 by sending Leia straight and just above the top planet and after she leaves the screen, grab the right leg of the tripod. This should get the top TNT to blow just about every time and if the lower Tie falls right, you should clear the level. You have to give her a full second or so off the screen before you grab to get this to work.

It’s amazing, what I can get this triangular contraption to do. Like threading the needle, every single time I go above and grab the leg, like a slow motion dance. It turns just enough to slide over the storm trooper leaving it untouched. Then it continues north. This time UNDER the top TNT and every single rock next to it. Of course, it I was SUPPOSED TO slide this monstrosity through without touching anything around it it would never happen. I’d be a bill on a china shop knocking over everything on my path. My snark is not directed at YOU because I can see, in theory, it shod work well. Just not with Murphy’s law having it out for me, lol. Good luck, all!

Hi @maiasatara. Great challenge because several possibilities and each one a very tricky shot. So far the best for me is the one suggested by @micromax, but it took me ages to get the angles etc. I’m getting best results by firing Leia up towards the first planet, but NOT letting her curl into gravity field. Instead, have the aiming points trace a fraction above the gravity field, so she would just skim past and go into space if not activated. Activate her power as soon as she clears the planet by tapping on the lower wing of the central fighter. This will now pull her back into the gravity field and knock asteroids into the TNT, exploding all and sending some into the structures below. The tripod should then spin round and also fall into the main planet. Destruction varies a lot, and sometimes pigs are left unscathed, but it’s how I managed my best scores. Good luck!

@peejaydee27, I’m having no luck when trying to skim past gravity field to activate before continuing into space. I’m managing to grab the wing but Leia isn’t being pulled into gravity field nor are asteroids setting off TNT. The legged contraption falls onto bottom right planet but I need those asteroid TNT points. I’m thinking I must be activating too soon . Can you post a pic of your trajectory? TIA

@justpast40 I’m having trouble with the shot the way @peejaydee27 described it too. If Leia misses the grav field, grabbing the oink fighter has never pulled her into it for me. Maybe there’s a sweet spot there I keep missing.
But when you aim her, the edge of the tracking line sits above the edge of the grav field so it looks like she will miss, but you’re actually close enough to just catch it so she curves down. It should look just like the screenshot you posted above last year.

Big thanks @micromax for the strategy. Lots of repeats til I finally got good destruction. :)

Hi @justpast40 : here is a screen capture – score is less but same trajectory. I think my description may have been a bit misleading. When I said “pull her back into gravity field” i should have said “pull her back AROUND gravity field”. If you tap on the wing as soon as there is a clear shot it should work. I’ve had multiple scores 95K+ using this strat.

By Boogerhead

I just revisited the level and I can’t duplicate what you’re describing. No matter what, I destroy just about everything using the method I described.

I just reread what I originally wrote and maybe it wasn’t very clear. “sending Leia straight and just above the top planet” really should be “sending Leia straight and just above the gravity field of the top planet”. After she leaves the top of the screen, be sure you wait at least a full second before grabbing the right leg of the tripod.

I can’t believe I’m typing “Boogerhead” lol. I’ve been using your strategy both zoomed all the way in and all the way out, counting one second with and without the “Mississippi” – it did get me my current score but 99% I’m threading the needle. I also tried @peejaydee27 strategy to try getting Leia sucked back in by grappling the upper fighter but all it does for me is pull the fighter into one rock. It falls into right gravity field but no explosion of TNT for the chain. Agreed it’s definitely not boring – a few different options and some incremental improvement keeps me trying. A few more hours left!

I forgot to mention I also spent some time with the @fusilero strategy of going within the top orbit and pulling the TNT down to create the chain reaction. It does well except I can never get the lower fighter to blow up – also sometimes the bottom right pig refuses to pop. Has anyone else had luck with that? (And I see I rely WAY too much on autocorrect. It’s been overstepping it’s parameters with grammar choices lately but its word choice is failing as a result, lol.

So… I thought 6-12 was difficult… uggghhh

This is doable but the only way I could get it to work was to use the method described by others above and (zoomed all the way out) send Leia at a 45 degree angle over the top planet (missing everything entirely). She will go in a straight line up and off the screen. Wait and then pull Darth Vader’s ship by grabbing hold of the right wing. That should pull it up while spinning counter-clockwise, pushing the ti-fighter into the right planet’s gravity while at the same time moving north to hit the boulders and set off the TNT. In theory…
