Update on Power-Up Scores
For now, we are disallowing any and all scores entered using “Power Ups”. We will be vigilantly monitoring the leaderboards to keep them PU-free (pun intended).

To all those who want to enter their “Power Up” score, please hang tight. We plan to allow these in a separate way to allow you to brag about your PU-aided score. Hopefully this can be done in a timely manner, but please understand that this is a major and impromptu overhaul that we were not really prepared for.

Thanks for your patience in this matter.

Prior to today we only kept one score per user, per level. Not anymore.

Starting now we have a history of the scores people enter, which means that if you accidentally enter a score using a power up you can easily revert back by entering “-1” in the score entry field. You can go back multiple times as well (if you have history for that level). It’s important to note that undoing a score on a level does not delete it..

In theory, you can use this to log multiple scores or track your progress on a level over time. Granted, right now only one score displays, but I will be working on ways of accessing this info.

Lastly, entering “0” on the leaderboard will still remove the score, so use that wisely. If you delete a score it is no longer in your undo history.

Disclaimer: This is a brand new feature, so there may be bugs. We will work those out though.

So I was playing Mighty Hoax and there was one level where I used Sling Scope to easily get my shot because I was in a rush. I got my normal 3* score but now can’t remember what level it was as it seems that there’s no indication that shows if Powerups were used in the level. Can Sling Scope scores still be counted in the ABN leaderboards? It doesn’t really improve your score in any way it just perfects the shot so you can get it quick and easy.

Rank: Boss Hog with 14310 points
By Pointdexter5 (@pointdexter5)

I would think it impacts your shot differently from how you would play it naturally. If this is allowed, how many arguments will we see for other power-ups that don’t really affect the score. In my opinion, we should all play at level ground. I’m completely ignoring the power-ups, don’t even know what they do, or how they are used, and I don’t care to know. If you keep playing clean, you don’t have to wonder if your scores are legit or not.

Pretty simply put, NO PowerUps. But you make a good point by saying scores cannot be proven to show if a Power Up was used or not. I’m really peeved that these jokers at Rovio decided to ruin the game for the all mighty dollar. It’s been a good few years of Angry Birds, but they ruined the game. 1st it was all the different formats and now these rediculus Power Up Cheats.. I’m done competeing, what’s the point. It’s no longer fair just to challenge a lead score, now it’s all the scores become questionable??

Sorry, we will be working on ways to accommodate and separate power-ups on the leaderboard. I’m quite confident now that they are indeed stored separately in your LUA file (this is the file that contains all your score history). While Rovio chose not to display a separate power-up score in the game, there actually is one. This also means that your non power-up score still exists. Both of which, is very good news. Why am I saying all this? Well, I think (hope) that at some point Rovio shows both scores in game. When/if that happens the competition factor really doesn’t change much.

@BirdLeader interesting to hear that the highscore file keeps track of a players highscore with and without power-ups. Personally that is the million dollar question and definitely the answer I was hoping for. I have sent several messages to Rovio in the past week and one of them I specifically asked about this exact thing. They did not answer that specific question but I was pretty confident that the info was retained.

It would seem to me that Rovio would have very little issue in correcting what they unraveled when they introduced PU’s. And I would also think that this would be an easy way for ABN to speak to the integrity of the leaderboards. I fully understand that not all players are using the iOS platform, but it would certainly be a step in the right direction if players were able to upload there .LUA file to input their scores on ABN.

I’m a little sceptical to have two diffrent leaderboards/two diffrent highscores or whatever ways you comes up with. In a way it feels like we give in and accept this way of intruducing PUs from Rovio and then they can insert these power ups in all their games. Secondly how will rookies to ABO see this with different highscores/different leaderboards and diffrent strats that people will post on ABN? They’ll think we are a bunch of reactionists and it’ll all be messy. I’d rather accept that ABO is sort of ruined and fight to save the others and hope for new series with PU or other intresting features part of the game from day one.

@chriss You’re most definitely entitled to your opinion, but IMO the addition of power ups by themselves doesn’t significantly change the core gameplay. I think the lack of differentiation between scores to be the major flaw. If you’re power up score were separate it could almost be looked at as a new challenge — albeit an expensive one — much like collecting feathers.

@amslimfordy I have never made a request before because I think you all do a great job maintaining this site. I read walk-through comments often and am somewhat disturbed by PU comments being included. It is probably more of a minor irritation, but most of us don’t use PUs and they are not allowed to be entered into leaderboards. So why are the comments even allowed? I personally do not like their presence because it seems to be validating their legitimacy. I hope I do not see a future where PU comments inundate the boards. Perhaps another venue could be found for these comments such as a forum thread?

@cc-jolly – you can definitely do more than 105K on S&T level 30. Forget powerups, don’t think about people using them. Most people don’t, and even if some do, those powerups are not that powerful. All you need to get high scores is the usual two things: 1) good strategy and 2) persistence. No powerups can beat that. Check the walkthrough page for this level: people describe very good strategies there. Try the easiest: yellow bird to take the pigs at the bottom, then black bird – to 1 o’clock position of the wheel. If you do the 1 o’clock shot successfully, you will have a lot of fun watching all sorts of crazy things the wheel does. This level is so much fun, don’t give up on it.

@AMSlimfordy — This may be sour grapes, but are ABO scores obtained using facebook without PUs allowed on the ABO non-facebook leaderboard? There are now many comments on the walkthroughs suggesting that what is possible in facebook without PUs is not possible in ABO 2.2.0.
If facebook non-PU scores are allowed, then I think I should enter mine, which are still a lot better than ABO 2.2.0.

Mvnla2, and the reason for that is because Facebook plays WAY different than ABO. The blocks don’t hit the same, or break the same, or respond to impact from birds the same.

I respect the fact that you are clear about playing with the power-ups and make no excuses for it. You seem to be at peace with the recent changes to ABO in fact I would go as far as to say you welcomed them. How were you able to put the feeling that you wasted many hundreds of hours working to achieve 1,256k only to re-play them today and find a n additional 45k? Doesn’t that burn you?

I hope you don’t take me asking as anything other than pure honesty.

@donnmega, thanks, I absolutely welcome the comment, and your curiosity. I have always wanted to be an elite shooter, and Worlds 1, 4, and 17 are those for me, but I haven’t put the time in to get all of the worlds like that.

I know some purists, and high rollers, like bastieroxxor, ernor63, moonsabre, and Nev have to be absolutely beside themselves with the power ups update, but I had a feeling something like this would happen, which is why I didn’t bother wasting too much of my time on it.

As far as I’m concerned, I am cool with it. I have already tried improving my Mine and Dine World 17 levels with the power ups, and it was not to be. It would still take a lot of hard work. On those levels, I was not able to do any better, so I am completely cool knowing that people will still have a difficult time beating me.

On World 1, I had already been one of the tip top players, and I still am, so I’m cool. ;) I’m not going to get myself worked up about something that they probably shouldn’t have done, after all, they are trying to appeal to the masses, and the elite players who have dedicated a good portion of their lives in being so, are only a super small percentage of that.

I can understand your points @dollarbill2208, but I just can’t agree personally. We all have different opinions, and that is fine. But when you are a top athlete and take steroids, or put cork in your baseball bat, just to get a few seconds faster, or a few more homers, you have to wonder though how other feel about this. But as @donnmega said too, you are not hiding it, you are very open about it, and seem to have reached a ceiling already and are now just exploring how far you can go above that. Is that a correct assumption.

Personally, I am not going to use these. I take pride in playing pure, and while I have been a top-10 player here for a long time already (okay, I’m not now, but I have to enter my S&T 16-30 yet, and I’ll be right back up there), I still would like to get closer to the top 5 guys. It’s a shame gamecenter is now going to get warped even more, as I generally have been in the top 25 there, and we all know there are close to 10 fakes out there. I guess I can no longer use those charts for reference now, and will just have to use it as a check-off, to make sure GC stays in sync with ABN.

I have now reached 2.85M for S&T and points are getting harder to gain I can see that 2.9M is reachable but can’t find the motivation to dig in and do the hard work that’s needed to get there. Of course the issue with PUs makes my commitment and support to the game questioned for the moment as well as my motivation.

As I am mentioned here and some of my friends too, I thought I would reflect a little about my feelings and some of my insight into the state of AB. First to Bill (@dollarbill2208) I respect that you have another view on using PU’s in an established and old game that’s been around for a long time, but I have a totally different view on it. More like DonnMega’s and others have stated. That the way they did it is a slap in the face to this community of elite shooters.

But I also would have happily played with PU’s if they were introduced in a NEW series and in another way. I have like @DonnMega sent a lot of messages to Rovio to express my concerns and got some polite replys but of course no real insight on their plans. But they confirm that they are following the debate on ABN. PU’s could have been an interesting part in how to build a strategy for a level if they were included and limited in use. That would add a new strategic dimension to the game that would have appealed to even me, of course no charge for them. But the way Rovio did it, I will not even think about trying them.

And Bill you are right all the guys you mentioned expressed the same concerns and the posts from them that I know of indicate that they all are leaving AB now (Nev sad “I’ll put AB a side now”, moonsabre (@moonsabre), “all good things comes to an end” and Bastieroxxor (@bastieroxxor) will not download the new update.). That’s a pitty as we lose the very top elite of players and their strategies and insights. I know they are not regularly posting strats here but through their followers their strats end up at ABN quite often. This is a big loss for the whole community of elite player as well as for ABN and in the end Rovio them self. I have told Rovio this personally, and I will do the same if we don’t see any action from Rovio to restore our trust.

Thanks for weighing in @ernor63. As you can see, we’re on the same page as far as how we feel about the game. I do not know if I am considered elite on this board, but as a regular top-10 player I feel I’m a very decent shooter. School has kept me from playing as much as I have wanted, but I have finished S&T 16-30 now and should be back in the top 10 soon. I feel the PUs should have been handled the same as ME, where it does not impact the pure scores. ME is all about destruction, not about high scores. For PU, they should have done something similar, a separate score, just to see what you could reach as a max PU score. It could have added another level of competition yet.

For me this is all about seeing how high I can score, and it’s about competing with other top players. If we lose these players, it will not be as much fun any longer. I look at scores from players like yourself, and that is what I aim for. I may not get there, but I try. And I don’t mind sharing where possible. Some top players do, some do not, but that is okay.

I have not contacted Rovio yet, but if I would help if I did, let me know what is the best way to contact them. I think it needs to be clear to them that GC is a farce now, even though it’s not owned by them. It was already bad that people were able to get fake scores in there, but with PUs, these scoreboards are now going to be completely unreliable and it will be impossible to differentiate real players for PU players. ABN is my only valid way now to compare myself to other top players.

@ernor63.. If Rovio reads these discussions I wonder why they keep changing the game on such a consistent rate. The game started out as an iPhone app and then they started adding different versions for other devises that varied from the original game. These variations where all listed and discussed here on ABN.. All of that was bad enough but now they’ve gone way off the reservation with these PU cheats. These cheats are now beginning to affect the GC scores too.. That’s a lot of wasted time put in playing an Honest game.

If Rovio is just so concerned about just making more money then I have a solution that would solve all our problems. Make a new version of the game for competeing players. .. Call it Angry Birds Competition version.. Make the game exactly the same for all devises and NEVER make any changes that can affect past scores. No Golden Egg or Mighty Eagle baloney, just scoring .. Only updates allowed would be to add new levels.. I would be happy to pay for a version like this. Even if we would all have to start from scratch at least we would finally ALL be on a level playing field. After a few months all would be back to normal….

I visited angrybirds-score.com and the first thing i saw were comments blasting rovio about the update as well, and all by their elite players. In one post “angry birds has turned into a little kiddie game” with replies “i totally agree”.

I was not worried about being missed. I understand that some are just another step above the rest, so this is why I said I was not sure if I was considered elite or not. With my current total S&T score, I should be back to position 7 soon, and with classes ending today, I can finally work on improving more to further move up a bit. I also need to get my AB Space scores entered, and need to work on improving those yet too. Will be interesting to have to manage ranking for multiple games (you focus on one, get passed on the other…). And then there is seasons, which I was able to get for free during their promo a few weeks ago. Only played Atlantis so far, but decided to leave this one aside until I have ranking for both original and space up to where they should be.

Great discussion guys. I left this comment on another page, but I wanted to at least chime in here real quick. We have confirmed that the the LUA files that house your scores keeps track of standard and power up scores separately. This means that a solution to this issue is possible, so we will just have to wait and see if one materializes. While I know this is of little consolation, it at least offers a glimmer of hope to those of us who don’t use power ups. I actually have no issues with them, but there definitely needs to be differentiation between the two.

I don’t comment often but this is something I have been pondering about as well… Do I continue and trust that the scores being posted are made without the use of PUs or quit and work on my golf handicap.

I appreciate reading and knowing the thoughts of others of whom I am trying to catch or stay ahead of on this silly little game that absorbs way too much of my time. It seems that we are of a like mind and can chase each others score knowing that PUs aren’t involved in attaining scores posted here.

So, I just wanted to say thanks for sharing your thoughts. It will keep me striving for the next rung up the ladder for a bit longer.

I think that @birdleader and @amslimfordy have done about everything possible to keep bad scores out of the leaderboards, so I would go ahead and trust you’re getting fair competition. You know which players in the top 10 care, so I think you can trust these without doubt.

That sounds promising @birdleader, but I will continue to play ABO as normal acting like there wasn’t even an update that happened (other than the PU addition) I enjoy the game and competition so much without PUs that I think we will still be able to get to the point where we can decipher whether or not a PU was used like we were able to tell Facebook scores apart. Hopefully there is a permanent solution in the near future but for right now I will just continue to do what I do.

@haddock5, I installed the update before I knew about the PUs, but I just ignore them. The button just sits up there next to ME, so just something else in the screen. Once and a while, some PU slot machine will show up at the bottom of the machine to give you more PUs, but they don’t take over the focus from the game, so it does not really interrupt. As I have said before, I don’t even know how they work, nor do I really care.

Hope to see you back soon competing in the top 10.

I used to be the top player for Mine and Dine and held that spot for several months, then I lost it when I focused on other levels. Going to try to get my ABO up a bit more, then work on getting a nice top spot in space, and then will focus on Seasons. Big to-do list.

I definitely feel in the same realm as most of you with the PUs as well. It’s almost as bad as the double count in Rio although it seems like it’s all dependent on how Rovio reacts to this issue. Having the separation between the scores certainly would be ideal. I’ll sit out for now of ABO until I know more.

By metoo3

I too am now just working on seasons and space where there are no power -ups . I would have never downloaded had I known they were added. I really liked the leader boards and competitions where is was just skill or pure luck at getting high scores. Power Ups have taken the fun away as not everyone will play by the rules. What happened to ” if it ain’t broke don’t fix it ” ? I had to give my two cents worth to at least make me feel good. I pray they don’t add anymore power ups to other places.

I think PE is tough, as it’s been played by the most players, has scores from many platforms…so sometimes you are ranked in 200th position, yet only 2k from the top score. In the other episodes, it’s not so bad, at least for now.
It’s amazing though how you can never rest once you care about your scores here. I have attempted many times to be top 10 in every episode, but once you reach that, and move on to another, you can see your name slide down. It never ends. At some point, I will have to take peace with my place and focus on seasons and space. I have good scores, some high scores in space, yet need to enter them. Seasons I just started.

Hello @werewolf69. I remember that I really hated Mine & Dine, too, and thought that I wasn’t getting anywhere on it. However, I just checked, and my rank here on ABN for that world (#111) is better than my rank on any other level of AB original. That surprised me. I expect it to go down a notch soon when you finish the level! Just keep plugging at it, and eventually the luck will be with you. I probably start each game at least 500 times before I get a score that I can live with. On most of those tries, I hit reset as soon as I can tell that I’m not going to improve my score, but an hour or two is common. I’ve got far too much time on my hands.

What’s up @Snoid, Wow, it’s almost as if I’m hearing myself, I go through the same crap day in and day out with these nasty little boogers, you got it right sometimes there’re episodes that just won’t let you 3 star it, much less get a high score, so generally after an hour or 2 being stuck on the same episode, I just leave it for a while and do another one in the meantime, usually when I come back to it, it’ll magically give me a great score from out of the blue, you know, you’re aiming for one thing and the bird goes somewhere else and annihilates all the boogers at once. I also know more or less if the game’s going anywhere and hit replay if the score doesn’t rise as it should. For now I’ve been posting all my Space scores, so I’ll be getting back to Mine and Dine pretty soon.

Hello @Pointdexter5, Actually, I think that for some unknown reason (or known only by Rovio), AB behaves differently on a PC platform. I’ve noticed that my Birds don’t carry the same amount of momentum as the ones in the walk-through videos nor do they cause as much damage, I always have to improvise somehow to take up the slack, and there’s where I lose points in the end, by having to use 1 more bird. On the easier episodes I don’t generally have this problem, only when they are more complex.

I was mentioning you (@amslimfordy) to see if something was up with GC got iPhone. @bluestar_127 posted a question about this yesterday, which is on the board right above this question. The question is not related to S&T, but just about rankings disappearing from GC for iphone and the possible PU impact.

Thanks you two, I really do appreciate your effort. I don’t know what’s going down on my phone. My GC account doesn’t show my scores anymore! It also only shows that I have 5 friends but I had close to 200 I think. Very strange.

Finally! After 3 days of screaming, cursing and going stark raving mad, I finished Mine & Dine. There were some really great episodes in it, I tried & tried & tried for hours on end to achieve the 1 birder spectacular finish in 17-6, but, alas, it was not meant for me, although I did manage a 2 birder instead, but at a sacrifice in score, almost 139k. As far as I’m concerned, this M&D has been the most challenging and difficult of all the AB games, and I’ve played them all including Facebook & Google Chrome. Now I have only Ham ’em High left to play, so I’m taking a breather for a couple of hours and concentrate on posting the rest of my Seasons and Rio scores, again, not so great scores, but eventually I’ll bring them up to par with the Pros on this website. (Wish me luck).

Incredible! Now, Mine & Dine seems like a walk in the park, this Ham ’em High is going to eventually land me in the loony bin, and to top it off I have anemic Birds. I’m beginning to consider buying an i-Pad and starting over again. (God, what am I saying?) I want to become a true basketcase. My addiction to these birds is so strong that I stopped going to the Casino, so now I still curse and scream but I don’t win any money, nor do I lose any, what a tradeoff. Only a crazy old Cuban would do this. Coño!!!

I’m confused here. I got:
– 76,170 on 9-8, while the current Top Score is only 71,270.
– 97,420 on 9-12, while the current Top Score is only 80,640.

As far as I remember, I never touch “The Big Setup” since they release PU feature.
However, I also couldn’t remember how I did those since it’s AGES ago.

So what should I do?
Should I just leave them (and other levels with the same case) blank?
Thanks in advance.

Well, first welcome to the Nest :D
Those scores are indeed very high.
How many other scores are in a similar situation?
We will have to ask for some sort of verification ( i.e Game Center id, screenshots)
@Amslimfordy is the person who will contact you for this.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply sal9.

I can post the Game Center ID, and level screenshot.
But current screenshot though. Not the moment when I got those scores.
Unless I re-do those levels and try to match my scores, which might takes weeks since it took me 1-2 weeks (average) per level.

What device are you playing on? Maybe I can look into this a bit further. In particular that score on 9-12 seems way out there

Thanks for the reply AMslimfordy.
I think we better forget about it. This is all about proof and there is no way I can prove them since it was long time a go. In fact, when I opened 9-12, to try figuring out how I did it, I completely forgot about the level. I don’t even remember I have even played that level. Haha.

So forget about it bro. I’ll leave the score empty. And I will also do the same with the other levels that I couldn’t prove. Leave the score boxes empty.

Thanks anyway, AMslimfordy. :)

Regarding platform: I play AB on iPhone.
Regarding the PUs: I hate them. There are some days that I didn’t play AB, and up until today I got total 28 unused PUs.
Regarding Game Center (mentioned by sal9 above): I’m at #347 under Hery Cyd.

If you would like to forget it, that’s your choice. But if you are using an iPhone, I may be able to look into this more. Let me know. It’s up to you.

Hi AMslimfordy,

I am terribly sorry for the late late late reply.
Regarding my 9-12, don’t bother with it.
Too troublesome. I won’t put my score in anyway.
I have put in the average score, 67,500.

Thanks for the offer, AM.

I’m trying to improve my scores on M&D, but it won’t let me, it only gives me scores lower than what I have, weird, isn’t it? Most other games I’ve played usually improve your scores the more you play them, but Rovio seems to have a sick and demented sense of humor and to top it off, they laugh and sneer at you through their pigs, ironic, isn’t it?

@eweber what is your total for world 17? Have you reached 1.9 mil? That seems to be a huge barrier. I have 1,886k or so. And I haven’t perfected worlds 15 and 16 yet, due to some burnout.

In my attempt to regain the nr 1 spot in M&D, I noticed @eweber came back to play. I passed your old score and the previous nr 1, and still have some levels where I can improve. It really is just luck and patience on these levels at this point. Hope to see you near the top soon. Guess you won’t let me have one episode (-;

Well, it looks like my second time around with M&D I’m going to improve my scores as well as my ranking, thank god, it’s about time.

It certainly looks like I’ve improved my ranking and scores, but there are still 5 or 6 episodes that need work on them, gotta keep slinging!!!

I’ve done just about all I can do with M&D, there are about 6 episodes that no matter how many hours I put into them the scores won’t budge, so now I’m off to S&T and hopefully catch a tan while killing some swine and increasing some scores.

I’m finished with S&T, I went from about 600th in rank to 144th, that’s good enough for me, these games take up more of my day than life itself. I’m off to Ham ’em High now, another one that desperately needs score raising.

Looks like I’m doing pretty good with HeH, I’ve gone from 838th in rank to 563rd and I’m only about halfway through.

I’m finally done with HeH, went up in rank to 298th, considering I was at 838th I’d say that’s a good rise.
I’m now going to try the last 15 episodes of S&T and see how I do there.

I finally finished the last 15 episodes of S&T and episode #38 was a nightmare that took me 3 days to 3 star, and all the other ones are 3 starred as well, also I’ve gone up in rank from 144th to 49th, but I know that won’t last long.

Well, I finished with Bad Piggies and it’s been fun and a nightmare at the same time, it seems as if Rovio is hellbent on creating the perfect killer pig, and when I say killer I mean killer of us, the players.
There’s one episode in particular, #38, which forced my girlfriend to call 911 because I had a “rage” attack and was throwing my computer, TV, and stereo out the window 20 stories up. Fortunately no one was hurt, but I spent the weekend at the hospital calming down and then had to go buy a new TV, Stereo and Laptop that “hurt” my wallet a lot.

Correction, I’m referring to episode #38 of Surf & Turf, not Bad Piggies.

Pointdexter5, Ah ha! It worked. Thanks for your assistance on saving a screenshot. Now, I just have to figure out how to move the screenshot from my iPad to my PC, cuz I’m the farthest from an IT expert and I don’t have gmail set up on my iPad.

When you connect the iPad to the computer, you should be able to browse the content of the iPad for the images folder, and drag them to your hard drive. Not knowing the type of machine you are using, cant really go too specific. I have never tied to use iTunes to do this, just use windows explorer, which works easiest for me. Hope this is helpful.

@Lul2all You don’t have any e-mail on your iPad? If you have e-mail on your computer, you can also set it up on your iPad. (Can’t give you detailed instructions, sorry). You might want to do this for the future, if not now.
@AMSlimfordy — Any idea why you apparently can’t upload a photo directly from your iPad to ABN?
