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.

Suggestions for the future

w'sup everyone? I had a few ideas come to mind, so I figured id throw in my 2 cents. I've noticed that there are a bunch of complaints about the reg lobbies and maxed cars in every room etc etc.

My proposals:
1.You guys can integrate an option for the challenged racer to pick Head to head or bracket race (racers have to dial in a time closest to their estimated et) so their is no real disadvantage to either. that way friends can still be in the same room.
2. If number 1 is too much then add the same strict room ratings that you guys do in turf lobbies. (I know it makes you more money when someone loses a car and has to buyback; a shot in the dark) Its easier for us( as established racers) to lose cars and get them back; then it is a noob who will never play again bc he lost a car to an unfair race lol
3. Add a tuning track that cant be interrupted by other racers (sometimes the rooms are too packed to find a bot) engine damage should not be accumulated in this room
4. reduce repair times,price of parts, and install times by a nice percentage.
5. The "Halloween special" you guys had on gems should be more of a permanent package or keep the same prices and add 30% to each package. im pretty sure you all can compare financial data charts from standard prices to "holiday prices" I would think that more ppl wouldve purchased gems during specials than standard prices
