• Hello. Is it just me or does it seem to others that with this latest update they’ve simply enacted the previous update, but just more slowly. Has no one noticed the Daily Challenges getting ever so slightly more and more difficult with slightly ever more and more micro pigs and ever increasingly resilient pigs surviving conflagrations all around…[Read more]

  • Communication and protest. I did so here in hopes that Rovio would get the message. Not that I think they are going to reverse all the BS simply because I stopped playing. Who am I? But, as someone else said, if we all quit playing, that would be powerful, and would make Rovio rethink its recent destruction of the game. People seem to forget as…[Read more]

    Has anyone ever done an Environmental Impact study of Angry Birds? If they support Animal protection, does the running of Angry Birds work against a healthy environment in which animals (and humans) live? How much electricity, by both Rovio and those who play their games, is wasted on this game? And is that energy green?

  • I’m joining you. They are not going to step back from these changes. They are exploiting the pandemic to cash in. As someone else said, playing now feels like a chore, something to get done along with the washing up before going out for the day. But change is good, and AB is not the only game in town.

    I think they did very well during quarantine with all of us having more time on our hands. They got used to it and now want more.

  • rgc replied to the topic Something is different in the forum Angry Birds 2 Forum 2 years ago

    We’ve been discussing this for a few weeks now. Look further in the forums at Arena and Daily Challenge threads. Rovio has very much changed things and not for the better according to most here.

  • rgc replied to the topic New Arena in the forum Angry Birds 2 Forum 2 years ago

    What is this? I just played in the Arena and, with one bird left, I was slightly ahead of my opponent who had no birds left. I threw my final bird, inched up a bit more to ensure my win and then, despite having no bird to throw, my opponent’s score shot up by 4 million, winning the match. How the hell the did that happen? How did my opponent score…[Read more]

  • Sorry, the ads are not optional.

  • So, would you then say that Rovio’s new model is to focus on a small group who spend money a lot at the expense of those of us who have a more casual approach to the game, content to watch ads? They’ve even added ads to the normal game play and these ads are optional. You must watch them. So, Rovio has altered everything to get us to spend spend…[Read more]

  • The only reason to play the Daily Challenge now is to collect the 15 gems for playing.

  • They are not backing down on this, are they? Today’s Daily Challenge is bullshit. 3rd level room 3 is designed to ENSURE you WILL NOT finish WITHOUT spending money or gems. It’s total, transparent bullshit and we are pathetic to continue playing. I accuse myself, too. Why do I keep playing a game whose designers seem now intent on making the game…[Read more]

  • Angry Birds now imposes ads. They are no longer only voluntary. I just found myself watching ads I didn’t agree to. Such transparent BS.

  • Sorry, thought it was an apt analogy. Even today as I was playing the joke ran through my head, “Have the Trumps taken over Rovio?” I think you should get used to it, though. In the weeks, months and years to come, Trump is going to be the go-to analogy, metaphor, simile, allusion, etc, for all things cheap, greedy and corrupt.

  • Playing the DC is now like experiencing Donald Trump’s presidency. It’s just all about losing. This is how I play now; strategic losing and avoid the Arena altogether. Angry Birds 2 is now all about how you lose, not how you win. Well done, Rovio.

  • rgc replied to the topic New Arena in the forum Angry Birds 2 Forum 2 years ago

    As expected, I played again and completely destroyed my opponent, winning my 1000 feathers. So clearly Rovio is staking a lot in people’s vanity vis a vis rankings.

  • rgc replied to the topic New Arena in the forum Angry Birds 2 Forum 2 years ago

    I just played the first level of today’s Arena and was defeated. Why does Rovio think I would now give 60 gems to start over when I can just replay level 1 for free? Sure, I loose ranking, but so what? If I play level 1 enough times, I’ll get the 1000 feathers at the expense of a few Arena tickets, which are everywhere these days anyway, so it’s…[Read more]

  • I played the Daily Challenge 5 times today and couldn’t get past the 2nd room on the 3rd level. I was not going to get beyond this room without spending gems and who does that in DC before the Boss Pig room? When I left without spending gems a rare chest naturally popped up. Nope. Pass, thanks. You can’t get us coming AND going.

    I am going to…[Read more]

    The timing of this is no accident. People are stuck at home and they are going to get money for xmas and Rovio’s making a play for it. Don’t give in. Boycott Arena, DC and refuse the chests they offer. Take a hit for a while and deny them this Christmas cash grab.

  • Exact same experience just now. I even used spells and paid 60 gems on the final Boss Pig level and still nothing. The 3 birds they gave me in relation to what remained were useless. The timing of this is no accident. People are stuck at home and they are going to get money for xmas and Rovio’s making a play for it. Don’t give in. Boycott Arena,…[Read more]

    All of these changes are nothing more than gem traps. Rovio has increased significantly how much you have to pay to move forward in DC, Arena and MEBC.  It’s transparent bullshit. Clan battles are the only rooms remaining where one wins or looses in ways that seems consistent with expectation.
