Mafia Wars 2, Ravenskye City Lead This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Games by DAU

Mafia Wars 2 tops our list of fastest-growing games by daily active users this week with Ravenskye City and the Chinese language version of My Fishbowl rounding out the top three.

You’ll notice that, following Facebook’s updates to how it counts active users, almost all monthly and daily active totals appear rounded. Gain totals also seem to appear uniformly rounded, though we can see that they are not for Mafia Wars 2, Ravenskye City and Words With Friends. We’re still trying to puzzle out this discrepancy.

    Bingo Blitz is a lot of fun . . . at first. They are right, it’s NOT your Grandma’s Bingo because Grandma would beat them to death with her handbag. You work so hard to collect all your icons for a level and win the credit prize and then poof! Your credits disappear. You win treasure chests and buy keys to open them and poof! They are empty. Your keys are gone. Your money is gone and you have nothing. You buy the bingo cards to play and mid game you are kicked out of the room and your money is gone and your cards are gone and you are left out in the cold. They don’t respond to your inquiries. They are not concerned about your losses nor your frustration. Do yourself a favor, don’t get involved to start with.

    Yes, I am just one disgruntled player but read for yourself. There are thousands of posts out there by bewildered game players asking, “What happened?”

    Ravensky City is awesome! :D
    I started playing it a few days ago and love it!
    It has story, you can get all the extra stuff by having friends send you gems (instead of having to use real money, which is awesome. I don’t know how much money I put into paysafecards for other games…) and it has a story that’s actually exciting and fun :D
    I love it!
    Plus I really love the looks, too cute :D
