Something very strange is happening with the Arena. Since Sunday morning I have lost 14 out of 16 round 1 games. And the other 2 I lost in round 2.
I’m in Diamond League and are always in Diamond or Legendary league. My flock power is 704 and I’m quite good at this game. I’ve never had such a run.
Everyone I play is 20 or more flock power than me.
Am I bothered? No. Will I cheat? No. Will I pay? No. Life’s too short for any of that.
But I am annoyed that Rovio seem to have picked me out for this treatment (or are others having this problem?) and made the game that much less enjoyable.Dearg mor@dearg-mor
Maybe its because of the recent hat event, since I have all of the set (and even upgraded a couple of burds) yet I am always pitted up against people who have a higher fp than me
I rarely use the tickets.. The arena has become too unstable. I do it for the apples, then just shoot the birds off to lose a round and reset it..
Another thing. win 10. game “pauses” mid flight and at various inconvenient times during rounds both on maps, and arena. it just freezes for a moment, but its enough to throw off my timing.. getting tired of it.Vlăduț123@vladut123
Hello. I have one problem with arena play mode. When I try to enter in it, it shows me that the tournament already ended. Also, I press the check mark the border with the information appears to me again and again. Do anyone had this kind of problem too? Have you solved it? And how? Any advices are welcome, thank you very much.dtmt@dtmt
Changes are coming…”nice”. As a pessimist my take is that by making it more competitive it will require even more using of gems to get anywhere. And as of now only thing that is happening is that in Daily quests they are taking my 20 gems away when I cannot get those 25 stars and denying me my 4 apples for today.hogbeater@stedman42
Rovio love trying to break things that work. Maybe they should remember: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
They did the same thing with the MEBC…fortunately they changed that back to the way it was (and introduced the local leaderboards, which believe it or not, were a good idea). They also tried doing the same with the new hat sets, introducing stupid event coins but fortunately they have gone back to the way it used to be. Now they are doing the same with the Arena. Going on previous experiences, it will be a disaster.Simon@simonsaysboo
4 times today I’ve lost Arena games to a player with a lower score than me. One of them was by nearly 8m points. Not sure how to explain that, but the new scoring mechanic makes it an egregious problem rather than merely irritating.
I’m also really enjoying now being forced to upgrade birds that I will never use other than in the Arena. Day 1 has started with two birds that I’ve literally never used.
I’m sure Rovio will say this has made it “more fun” for everyone. Everyone with a financial interest in Rovio, perhaps.
thats been happening to me (win 10) for the last 2 weeks.i8pigsThunder@i8pigs
We the Players…stop unfair gaming practices in programming designed to steal your money. Look at Rovio financial..hidden in new update Profits are down since Pandemic so new design is to take more of your hard earned money to support shareholder stocks by big greedy company. Not to improve gameplay, don’t he fooled. Game programming is skewed to stock holders thieves.
20% Profit is the net dollars they gain after all expenses and taxes.
Publicly Pressure ROVIO to comply with regulatory agencies licensing and oversight agencies. Make the game fair for all. Strength in Numbers. REPORT

What have Rovio done to the Arena? They claim to have made it “fairer” but all they have done is taken away any of the strategic elements. When to use/not use spells, when to lose on purpose etc. They had previously removed the option to use lower power hats (another stupis mod). They have removed apples from the arena and redistributed them in Daily and King Pig Challenges (while making them harder to win). Guess what Rovio, I will not spend gems in response to this dishonesty. I will simply let my hatchling die and not worry about apples. I will not spend any gems at all in future. I still have Angry Birds Space and Rio beckoning for me to return.Dsand3@dsand3
Please relook at the Arena! The scoring makes no sense to me. I’m ahead by five mill, the opponents last bird is weaker by 10 points. I loose! Their slingshot is weaker, also. This isn’t challenging, it’s frustrating.Shuckle@shuckle
Exactly what happens to me, too. Last opponents last bird takes amazing points. It is not possible to win 5 times in a row altough I seem to be much stronger in points.FenderPete@petemonknz
Upgrade? Yeah, right.
What a horrible rollout. I simply don’t get how I can perform fine in the old arena, even 1:1 without loading on spells, and yet here I can barely get past the first one.
And the tallying of scores is suspicious at best. My apparent ‘equally matched’ opponent more often than not will paste me by adding like 9m points with one bird.
I lose frequently. Going backwards. Tempted to invest in gems to replay. But then I realise *that’s the point*.
Clan Active #8298 is looking for dedicated ACTIVE people to join us.
We only have 2 rules.. Check in daily and do the Clan V Clan battle. That’s it. No other rules. No minimum points. Doing the point battles are optional, however the more people that do them, the greater the reward for all who do them.
If you do not log in after 3 days you get kicked out. Fail to do a clan battle you get kicked out. Simple as that.
So if you want to grow your flock power, and are willing to do the clan battles, look at Active clan.
Otherwise there really is no reason to even be in a clan.
