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.

Showdowns are pathetic right now

I'm sitting in a 35 lobby in showdown right now, as i'm typing this, nobody is there. I got 1500 points so far and will be lucky to stay in the money. Why? Because you guys decided to use the worst cars, for a showdown ever, Traffic is seriously down, The only people playing right now, are the weak boosters, that want an old plated car. You want more traffic? you want more people turfing? You need to draw in new players, showdown should be a free for all every time, not just an individual turf.

The current format wouldn't be too bad, except you only get access to a max of three lobby rooms. Right now there in nobody, in my room. Would love to race and get points, but you F'ed it up using Mitsu's for a showdown

    Just to add to this post, Honda S2000 event after the mitsu event? You guys are ruining a great idea, you should be getting people excited about turfs. Instead i know people wanting to quit after the mitsu event, the CR even right after is pure insulting bullchit. Sorry may be only my opinion, but whatever had to say it. I'll spend RR cash to get a car, even consider coining the cash needed, but won't gem a car i have not even been impressed with. The last Honda event, i never got beat by a CR with my CRX
