It looks like Zynga finally turned up its cross-promotion dial to 11, since FarmVille 2 took the top spot on this week’s list of fastest-growing games by monthly active user with 15 million MAU for a 500 percent gain.
Zynga’s Texas HoldEm Poker took the No. 2 spot with 1.4 million MAU, a 4 percent gain. Meanwhile, Kixeye’s War Commander came in at No. 3 with 600,000 MAU for a 12 percent increase (due to increased promotion in Facebook’s App Center). 6waves’ Bubble Epic snagged 500,000 MAU for a 23 percent gain that let it take the No. 4 spot. CityVille finished out the top five games on the list, also bringing in 500,000 MAU but for a 3 percent traffic increase.
