Poor Zynga. Once the darling of the social gaming world, the developer has been losing users for some time now, while its competitor, King.com, is on the upswing.

In March of 2013, Zynga’s biggest game was FarmVille 2. It had more than 8 million daily active users at the time, representing 2.73 percent of the Facebook application market, according to AppData. At the same time, King.com’s biggest game, Candy Crush Saga, had about 21.5 million DAUs and 7.27 percent of the market.

In one year’s time, FarmVille 2 lost nearly 4 million DAUs, dropping from No. 4 in AppData’s Power Ranking to No. 20. Meanwhile, Candy Crush Saga has held onto its No. 1 spot, gaining more than 35 million DAUs in the same time period. Candy Crush Saga now has 15.77 percent of the market, compared with FarmVille 2′s 1.15 percent.
