If you're a fan of Facebook games that allow you to compete for supremacy against your friends, rather than simply work together, you might be happy to learn that CityVille now offers some competitive leaderboards to climb by completing tasks that you would normally complete anyway. As of this writing, there are three different leaderboards to climb: Most Productive City, Fastest Growing City and Most Active City.
While earning the top three positions on each leaderboard will give you a themed trophy, the real prizes come in the form of Goods, XP bundles, and even Zoning Permits. For instance, if you win the top prize on the "Most Productive City" leaderboard, you'll walk away with 20 Zoning Permits, 1,000 Goods and 100 XP. Here's a more in-depth look at the three leaderboards and what you'll need to do to climb them.
Most Productive City - Earn points by collecting from businesses
Time Limit: 14 Days
Fastest Growing City - Expand your city into the most squares possible
Time Limit: 7 days
Most Active City - Finish goals to earn points
Time Limit: coming soon
It's possible that additional leaderboards will be added to the game in the future, but these three should give you more than enough content to work on over the next few weeks. Earning points in your city will happen automatically, so if you're among your most active neighbors, you could easily walk away with plenty of prizes without doing anything differently than you normally would by simply playing the game. Good luck climbing your friends' leaderboards and winning this feature's many prizes!
