Angry Birds 2 – Step into the Arena!
Happy Tuesday y’all! Have you gotten familiar with all of the awesome new stuff in Angry Birds 2 yet? Are you coming to grips with the randomness of it all? Have you wrapped your head around the card system? Great! So we can skip those. Today, I want to talk about the Arena.
First thing’s first. You’re going to need to download the game. Get it here! Alright, now we’re ready.
Step 1 – Enter the Arena!
First, just tap on the Arena button to get started! You don’t see any arena button? Oh. Sorry about that!
Step 0.5 – Unlock the Arena!
Crucial step: to unlock the Arena you have to complete level 25. Go out there and show those pigs who’s boss!
Step 1 – Enter the Arena! (for real this time)
So you’ve passed level 25. Congratulations! You’re one step closer to becoming the world’s next top Bird flinger. Now, you can tap on the Arena button in the top right of the map screen. You’ll see some pop-ups containing some important info. Just close those immediately without reading, and boom – you’re in.
Step 2 – Play!
The Arena challenge comes in the form of one giant endless level. After clearing one wave of pigs, you will move on to the next, and then the next, and the next, ad infinitum. That’s Latin for “until you run out of cards”.
The basic idea is to destroy as much stuff as you possibly can. This will fill the destruct-o-meter and grant you extra cards, allowing you to do even more destruction and keep your arena run going! More destruction = extra cards = more destruction = higher score = higher arena rank = more win.
Step 3 – Movin’ On Up
So what do you get for all of your hard work? Feathers. Every day, you have a chance to earn feathers for a particular bird. You can see which bird you’re earning feathers for on the main arena stage (see the image below). You will receive more feathers the higher you are in the rank at the end of the day.
Think of feathers as experience points. Get enough feathers and your bird will level up. Level up all of your birds, and you’re moving up to the next league, playa’.
Everyone starts in the Vanilla league, but if you’re a hard-core bird flinger, maybe you can make it all the way to Diamond – or if you’re super hard-core, maybe you can reach the extra top-secret Mega-Diamond league above Diamond. So far I’m the only one who has made it that far. No big deal. Here’s some photo proof:
I hope that this helped. I think I’ve said Arena enough times for the word to lose all meaning. Arena, arena, arena, arena. Have fun bird-flingers, and I’m waiting for some competition here in the Mega-Diamond league so get to popping those pigs!
