  • 1.  Who won the WEM-AI Trivia Tower event?

    Hi folks! 

    For the month of May, the WEM community always turns it out with fun events and this time was no exception. They capped off their WEMAY event with some tough trivia questions in their WEM-AI Trivia Tower event. The results of this contest had an interesting twist: we had three top winners, but NONE OF THOSE PLAYERS chose to answer the bonus question worth three extra points. So even though they did the best at getting the trivia questions correct, they did not win the top prize, as those few extra points pushed other players to the top spots. I can't tell you enough how much those few points matter when it comes to deciding an overall winner.

    Before I reveal who that final winner is, check out the answers below to the WEM-AI Trivia Tower questions:

    So who was our big winner? Another plot twist was introduced when we saw we had a two-way tie between the next runner ups. It was between @Robert Wakefield-Carl and @Emily Kammerer. So we had to look at engagement scores to determine who would take this one home. In the end, it was Robert who had a higher community engagement score and so...CONGRATS, ROBERT! The top prize is yours! Thank you Emily for playing - you were so close! We know how hard it is to beat Robert in community engagement :)

    We have some fun events coming up this month, so join the Genesys Casual and Trivia Tower events for your next shot at winning.
