We had our very first Community Appreciation Month in November – and we went all out in showing our players how much we value them!
The Sims Social, EA FIFA Superstars, Pet Society, Restaurant City, Madden NFL Superstars, World Series Superstars, Monopoly Millionaires – among our other titles – were all involved and we set out to say a great big thank you – and here are just a few highlights!
Launching The Welcoming Committee!
We kicked off Community Appreciation Month by introducing the new Welcoming Committee – a specially selected team of users who are there meet and greet brand new forum members and help them find what they need. It’s something our players have really appreciated and just one of the ways we wanted to say ‘thank you’ to our players – old and new!
Global Meet Up!
The Sims Social had its first ever Meet Up on November 14th! Over 7,000 people signed up from around the world – and it looks like people had a lot of fun, too! Check out some of these pictures taken by fans on the night – remember, most of these players had never met before and the only thing they had in common was their love for The Sims Social. We think it’s pretty amazing how a social game can really bring folks together!
24hr Gift Giveaway!
To celebrate our community’s third birthday, players were treated to free gifts all day long across participating titles for a whole day! Not only did they get free gifts on the fan pages, but in the forums, too!
Here are some great comments from our players from the event:
