According to AppData, Candy Crush Saga currently sits at 9.7 million daily active players, which is almost a million players more than second place: FarmVille 2, which sits at 8.8 million daily active players.
The two games are incredibly different. One's a quick and easy puzzle / arcade title while the other's a complex farming simulator, but there's probably more to Candy Crush Saga's domination than its own ease of play.
Zynga's games have long been known as some of the most socially demanding titles, requiring players to constantly ask their friends for items or pay premium currency to advance in quests. Could this be a sign that FarmVille 2 has started to suffer from these issues and players are leaving for greener pastures? Or, could Candy Crush Saga's reign at the top be cut short just as quickly as it began?
