Over the course of the last five years, Racing Rivals has grown into one of the most hardcore racing games in the world. This loyal community has spent countless hours competing in millions of races in “winner take all” fashion – all in the name of Turf Wars and pink slips.
However, all good things must come to an end… After spending time evaluating Rivals and its future – we’ve decided that it’s time to move on. Simply put, the revenue generated from Racing Rivals unfortunately no longer covers the cost of operations. This was not an easy decision to make.
On March 31st, 2019 – Rivals will be racing off into the sunset, and will be permanently shut down. Current players have until this date to utilize any accumulated virtual currency. We’ll be offering some massive reductions in the cost of crates, installs and repairs in addition to a reduction on timers as you race your way into the history books. Effective immediately, no new in-app purchases will be permitted.
In closing, a resounding and sincere THANK YOU to our extremely driven fans for your loyalty and dedication over the years – we hope you’ve enjoyed playing Racing Rivals as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it.
Turf positions/ 500 error
As of 3:00 pm est on Saturday our team was in 41st place. As of today at 3:30 pm est and virtually nobody on our team able to race we have dropped in rank to 52. How are they going to determine your teams actual placement? Will they reset them and everyone forfeit their points for Sunday? Doubtful as people are spending gems imo. I'm not too concerned about dropping out of the top 100 right now, but what about those who were so close and are not able to make it up? Idk how many servers there actually are, I know at least 4 due to friends on different ones, but some servers are not effected apparently and can race which is a huge advantage for them. I don't think everyone who turfed deserves a turf car if they are nowhere close to 100, but maybe teams around 125 should be considered. Your opinions???
