I’m missing levels in my PC version of Seasons! I canm’t get all the GE’s because I don’t have the levels they’re on. How can I get these missing levels?

By Liz

Angry Birds 2 for iPad. When I try to enter the Arena I get: Connection Error. Please check your internet connection. I have quit and restarted and even shutdown and rebooted. Still getting error but I am connected.

By Jim

On angry bird 2. I suddenly can’t access the Colosseum. Says to check my internet connection but everything else connects fine in my other apps.

That’s not a bug that is a feature. :)

Yes this is real, you are not imagining it. No, it is not your device or your Internet connection. In fact Rovio doesn’t have enough server power, especially just before and after the end of a tournament. If you do a search on the forums here at angrybirdsnest (which apparently you have to do using a Google site search — I would love to be wrong about this, if I am please correct me), you can find several posts about this problem.

So keep trying. If I keep trying and I don’t connect after about the fifth time, the likelihood that it will connect is about zero and I come back later. I always finish up my tournament work about an hour before it ends because of all of this.

Angry Birds 2 Connection Error. Cannot get to arena.

By Dave

Won’t let me in arena as of 8/21/15, it says I need to check my Internet connection. There is nothing wrong on my end

By Sid

connection error into arena. Even deleted app. Reinstalled, same prompt. No changes on my device, it started suddenly yesterday

By Ong

After i updated my ipad to Ios 8.4.1, i can no longer use “ask everyone for help”. It kept giving me a blank list.

By Madison

I can’t play the arena because it says I don’t have an interent connection when I do. Please fix this problem!

@amslimfordy – was it a hiccup at Rovio?

The check-connection problem seems to coincide with the end of an arena tournament at 8:00 PM East coast time — at least for me. It happened yesterday and just now.

By Madison

I’m still having the same problem :(

By Debbie

This is driving me mad! Firstly, the slings shoot automatically without me having chance to position them and secondly at the end of a game once all the pigs have gone, I don’t have chance to get do anything else before the game ends. I’ve lost numerous ‘slings’ or ‘bulk up’ power ups because of this. Even when you are still active, it finishes the game. I have reloaded 4 times and it hasn’t fixed the problem. Thank you!

By Greg

I have the same problem with the slingshot shooting the bird all by itself. I make sure I never do any accidental touches or anything like that, that might cause it to be my fault. On one level just now, I lost FOUR birds that way! I’m going to contact Rovio about this. I love the game, but this just frustrates the crap out of me.

I’ve had the same experience but it hasn’t happened for a while. At first I thought that I might be causing the launch of the next bird by tapping the screen to initiate the previous bird’s special ability but I never “tapped” anywhere close to the sling. Since it hasn’t happened lately, I wonder if the latest update — adding more levels up to 260 — has fixed the problem.

By Debbie

Hi jwgardenwiz

This did happen a while ago with me also, but it did seem to rectify itself. This has only been a problem again since I installed Windows 10. I’m sure it will take time for them to catch up! Zuma Blitz also has a problem and they told me to use Chrome too!

By Debbie

Hi Greg
I did contact them and their reply is here:

We are sorry to hear that you are having problems with Angry Birds Friends. Games that function online within Facebook are sometimes susceptible to such glitching and freezing. In order to open the game and keep it running smoothly please try the following steps:

– Make sure your Internet connection is strong
– Close all unnecessary windows
– Close all unnecessary applications that use an Internet connection
– Make sure that your current browser is up to date
– Try opening the game on a different browser (preferably on Chrome)

Some people have issues with getting all the images to show on screen. This might be caused by using an ad-block that disables not only ads but also some in-game images.

With regards to levels ending too soon: The levels must end at some point even if items are still moving, because some levels can have items that will keep on moving forever (ropes, balls, items on bouncy mats). The game team always has to choose a time limit for the level ending after all birds have been used or all piggies have been popped. The goal is to have a time that is not too long (it can actually be really boring if you have to wait and wait and wait for each level to end) and not too short (so that the items that are moving when the level has been finished have some time to drop and possibly break). We have tried to adjust this time to be fair to everyone, but we get both complaints that the levels should end faster and that they should take longer to end. However, we are listening to our users’ feedback, and will always keep making adjustments to provide the best possible game experience.

It is not advisable to use power-ups after all the pigs have been popped.

I replied telling them that I am using Windows 10 and Edge and using Chrome isn’t much better and I do have the latest version. I haven’t heard anything since!

I think maybe it’s a Windows 10 compatibility problem but I’m not very clever! If you hear anything different I’d be interested to know please.

@jwgardenwiz. Maybe this is something I have been watching all week. At 5 PM Pacific standard time it clogged almost every day, with this error message. But it cleared up within 5 to 10 minutes. 5 PM PST is when the tournament closes on the West Coast.

@jwgardenwiz – just checked, it is still down . I think that we should exclude all flingers in Los Angeles from the the last hour of the tournament – they are overloading the system. They score too high anyway.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8810 points
By jwgardenwiz (@jwgardenwiz)

@gelfling that would help but it is a little drastic. Maybe Rovio could announce a 30min rest period after concluding a tournament to allow their servers to process the traffic.

Rank: Debriefed with 1375 points
By Gelfling (@gelfling)

First let me apologize to any of you who live in Los Angeles. It is not fair that Rovio ends tournaments at 5pm PST, while you are still at work, so that you cannot get in a few last minute flings before it ends. But even with that handicap you do score much too high, making it very difficult for poor gelfling to rise to the top of that ladder.

For a reality check, I went out to test my sense of humor to diagnose any humor pathology and see where it is coming from. (Others here may enjoy taking
it as well, it took about five minutes with no obnoxious ads.) According to that test, I have a “laugh at life” sense of humor: “Life is too short to be serious all the time. So, if you can’t laugh at yourself, call me, I’ll laugh at you!”

@jwgardenwiz, I hope that you take any remarks that I make in the future with two grains of salt. My humor is rarely literal, frequently dry, and on the dark side. I would be interested in what type of humor you have.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8810 points
By jwgardenwiz (@jwgardenwiz)

@gelfling, I thought that it was pretty clear that you were just joking joking. If I had my wish, Rovio would just exclude scores above a given threshold — my posted high score for example — but I son’t think that that is going to happen any time soon. I’ll try the site that you cite and let you know how I do.

That is funny. I thought about the exact same thing, going back through and trying to present myself as a different sense of humor.

By jwgardenwiz (@jwgardenwiz)

@gelfling — I also scored “Laugh at Life” sense of humor. I may retake the test with altered answers to see what difference it makes.

Rank: Debriefed with 1375 points
By Gelfling (@gelfling)

Ahhh. I get it. Another person who’s wit is so dry and wry that it can be mistaken for something else. I got into trouble here because I wrote a piece of humor and someone took it literally and threatened to kick me out. Nice to know that’s not your bent.

Angry Birds 2 can’t enter the arena near the end of the tournament time…happens at the same time every evening. Says internet connection is lost but I am on the internet and everything else is working finr. Very frustrating when you’re trying to get another shot at the leaderboard!

go to buy credits and a message that the URL doesn’t match the apps version….will not let me buy anything and then screen freezes, anyone else having this issue?

By Mitzrael

I use the original Angry Birds on my Android and on the stage 14 of the Egg Defender the second and 4th pigs don’t show up, sometimes the 2nd show up but the 4th one just explodes before it shows on the screen so I’m not able to destroy its vehicle. It happened with a couple of more pigs on different stages of the egg defender but restarting the level a couple of times fixed the issue. Any idea?

Does anyone know how to document a problem (in Angry Birds 2) by creating a video clip in Android?

This is a new problem for me, it never happened during the first 85 levels or so. When you pull back the slingshot, the dot path trembles, shaking, up and down. At first I thought it was because the level had strong wind, to increase the level of difficulty. Now that I have lived with it for a while I do not think that is the case. In particular, I went back to earlier levels and the.path shakes now but it did not before.

Does anyone recognize this problem? And, hopefully, have a resolution?

Is there a way to capture video in Android? I know developers. I can forward information about my hardware and describe the problem , but it is really not enough for them to figure it out. Their first, second, and third concerns are always “can we duplicate this?” How can I help them with that if it has changed over time without a video clip?

Thanks for any help, I appreciate it. This is especially frustrating in tournaments!

When I start Angry Birds 2 v2.10 it says new version available to continue playing please update to the latest version. I hit update, it gives me the option of uninstall or open in play store. It seems I am up to date LOL This is a first for me :P Also it doesn’t work offline like the older games.

The game requires an Internet connection.

Try simply going to the App Store manually and searching for the game. .10 is out of date.

By Pranav

I’m having the same issue. Even after manually searching for Angry Birds 2 in Play store, i’m getting only two options “Uninstall” and “Open”. Open takes me to the game which shows “New version is available” and doesn’t let me bypass it. I’m stuck in an infinite loop!

By Kevin

I have the same issue on my iPad. I’m stuck in a loop. The app is up to date. I don’t want to uninstall it because my son is up to level 118.

When playing Sonic Dash on Angry Birds Epic, the game appears to freeze mid-play. I have to close the app out or go back using the land button which doesn’t allow me to finish the level and get my reward but still uses up my stamina. This has been going on since the Sonic Dash arena started and I can’t seem to fix it and I’ve used up almost 100 stamina bc of this glitch. Fix it please!!!!!

Level 182 repeats after beating it 3+ times.

My favorite angry birds go character ayrton senna has a bug. Whenever I use him on the first air course(the one where you unlock bubbles) at the end when it show you your pictures real quick, it freezes. This is my favorite character and I finally got to the air courses so Hopefully it will work soon.

By Bert the Pig

Wait, I think I found a way around it, if I use his helmet it works. I like him better without it but that will have to do. Still hopefully it can be fixed

I just completed level 7-30 in angry birds space cosmic crystals. The game did not give me a score and sent me back to my phone’s home screen. Now when I try to play the same level, I keep getting sent back to my phone’s home screen taking me completely out of the game and making it impossible for me to play. I started this level because it was one of my daily challenges. I can’t even get to the level by trying to get back in using the daily challenge. I deleted the challenge but frustrating to not be able to replay and also get egg. Any suggestions anyone? I have this awful feeling that the answer is going to be the most dreaded response…….RELOAD GAME. Ack!!!

I have a Galaxy 10.1 iPad and this exact thing happened to me. DON’T bother reinstalling the game. I tried it and it didn’t work.

Lg g4 ad crashes angry birds transformers every time it opens

By Heather

Angry birds transformers keeps repeatedly crashING. I open it, the intro loading screen comes up and sometimes it crashes and closes right then but mostly it gets to the map screen and either hangs so that I have to press the home button on my Samsung S4 to unlock it or it just closes and I’m back to my home screen. It’s been doing it repeatedly to the point I haven’t played the game in a week.
I’ve updated the app, updated my phone, and in case it was a memory thing I freed up some space.
Please help, I love this game and I don’t want to uninstall it.

By Will Crim

On my phone app. Part 9: Red Mighty Feathers. The 14th level of the bonus Egg Defenders only has 4 pigs show up. This makes it impossible to get 3 stars.

By Bob

I opened angry birds 2 for first time, tried to play but it closed me out when I clicked begin on the first level

By Bryan

I continuously have the game crash when I watch videos to get the bonus. It doesn’t always crash. But sometimes when videos such as Hotel Transylvania plays, about 3 seconds into the video the game crashes and I have to start it again. It is always the same….3 seconds into the video it crashes. Then sometimes it won’t crash. I have tried restarting my phone, clearing the cache, forcing stop….nothing helps. Is anyone else having this issue? I’ve send 4 notifications to the developer without any reply.

By Jay

I’m having the same issue with the Hotel Transylvania add that keeps crashing the entire game. Now the issue is happening with a variety of ads and is very annoying the app needs to be restarted many times.
