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.

Lets talk about the issue.

As i agree with @Hello Hi Hi and the other respected guys/gals on this forum. We can change it. Its all about Economics. Raising the prices of mills will prevent most from buying rrc. Therefore most prices will go down. The surplus in scammers is coming from the prices you guys are charging. Some think 10M for a car is too much when in conversion to USD its $5. Some think it's too little. I have faith that in the next update some of the issues are solved. God forbid they say " **** it " and wipe everything from everyones accounts and tell us all to start over. When it comes to the trades with newbies. If they dont wanna follow the rules of these forums just move on or tell the others to be Cautionous*. I agree with the fact that most of us are teenagers just looking to argue. Hell im only 16 & trying to establish myself as a respected member like @bighead6988 , @Shadey960 , @RicedOutMan* formerly , @iiAMSHiFTY , @Caboose1744 , those are some of the guys i look up to. They've been around for a while and are here for fairness(cough*) , trades , and even a little entertainment. We just might have to accept that there'll be glitches and hacks & some people will be childish. But it seems like when we put our faith in Glu they fix one problem & another of an increasing degree surfaces. All about our choices to change rr , we as consumers have the most power , the devs are sitting on our cash. We can make racing rivals the ideal racing game. It's already the #1 Drag Racing Game on Play Store.

    @"FORREST FORREST GULP" i put an asterisk next to fairness lol i considered that , i was thinkin about vouchers wise & activity ya know. & @shtoobie these guys been around for a while lol

    Yep, lots of shady people now, I only trust the ones that have lots of vouches, and now I've discovered the people who are active on the forum not just for sales and trades are the most legitimate ones

    @stonedamage as i said on your post, id rather not get into a verbal altercation with you. @RicedOutMan can redeem himself if he chooses. Your social status is irrelevant to me sir. Thank you.

    The real question you guys have to tackle is whats the best alternative to fix everything. Or just state all the issues and find ways to deal with them individually.

    Wow for a teenager that was a well written post. Here is my views on the current car market as you all know the current cars in the silver crates are getting vaulted at the end of today. These cars are not cheap Honda civics, they are very expensive to obtain. I am not a teenager so have I have a lot more money to waste on this game than most teenagers. Having said that I don't mind eating most of the cost to provide these awesome cars to people that don't normally have the means to get them, but I'm not going to just give them away. Everyone knows to get any of there cars blueprints your going to spend at least 20.00 in real money per car when you factor in all the bullshit you get in between prints. So in my opinion if I'm charging you 10 mill which roughly equates to 5.00 your still getting that car for a steal!. Your getting a 75% off deal on my hard earned money. Now if you don't agree with that logic that's fine and I respect everyone's opinion, all you have to do is just move on to the next post. I just get mad when people get rude and insulting when they don't agree, or when they see someone that doesn't mind paying your price and they shit on your deal with insults.
  • shtoobieshtoobie Registered Users 7,944 Posts
    I think your completely right, something needs to be done. It is all in the economics, but the problem is, we can't just go about selling things for way cheaper and expect everyone else to do the same. The economy is already inflated and I don't know enough to come up with a solution to fix that...
  • JustAnonymousJustAnonymous Unregistered / Not Logged In, Registered Users 2,482 Posts
    @Holeshot9892 thank you :) & dude i completely agree ! Ive spent a couple hundred. Youre right we spend at least $20 to acquire these cars and yet were subjected to take 10m rrc for it. People get angry when we do the math and say were being cheated. Because apparently 40M ( the exact price ) for an F1 Gtr is Too Much.

    Thanks for the mention man. Appreciate it. I know I'm a "scammer" and all but I got some good in me too! Lol. Also, I've been here since July of 2014. If I hadn't scammed in the first place (going back to an old account of mine) I would be up there with @FORREST FORREST GULP and @bighead6988 and @TEAM SRT . They were all good buddies of mine on all my previous accounts. Sorry to let y'all down btw. I agree 1000% with this post. Keep up the good work everyone!
  • JustAnonymousJustAnonymous Unregistered / Not Logged In, Registered Users 2,482 Posts
    @shtoobie , youre right. Its a collaborative effort , but then we have those who are stubborn who wont conform. & with the changes that may take place in other updates. We just might need the inflation. But when the prices of cars and upgrades increase in game. The RRC will be scarce. In a way. Tournament has its pros & cons. It provided more money for the new guys to get but also contributed to the inflation. 5.2M as a cash prize? Thats where they went wrong.
  • iiAMSHiFTYiiAMSHiFTY Senior Member Registered Users 965 Posts
    @Holeshot9892 explains exactly how I feel about this market! The forum community doesn't realize how much real cash is being spent when it comes to crate or gem cars... They think that we're over pricing our rides and shit but on the real, it's on the dot! 75% off of an actual price is a steal! and i refuse to lose out on my cash. That's just it..
  • Holeshot9892Holeshot9892 Junior Member Registered Users 543 Posts
    I can't stand scamming it's totally ruining the game it's casing the new players to delete this awesome game quickly. But I will say I actually agree with bounty hunting. I saw some really cool shit happen yesterday with someone getting not so funnys charger back.
  • Shadey960Shadey960 Junior Member Registered Users 9,345 Posts
    I agree with everyone mabye if the forums became more strict in some areas we would have control its not only about prices being high but its also about rules like jason stathem in transporter number one rule is not to break rules lol

  • JustAnonymousJustAnonymous Unregistered / Not Logged In, Registered Users 2,482 Posts
    We've gotta pinpoint the biggest issues. Forums is the best structure today to decrease scamming. But now im hearing about corruption in admins, im seeing people who barely joined 2 days ago as Junior Members.
  • Holeshot9892Holeshot9892 Junior Member Registered Users 543 Posts
    Because this is the unsupported trades page we can't count on glu to change anything, they are just sitting back laughing while we destroy each other . It's up to us to make this a better game.
  • Shadey960Shadey960 Junior Member Registered Users 9,345 Posts
    Theres a channel moderator who joined less than a month ago like wtf

    @Holeshot9892 , We need a council of some sort. I cant propose anything too authoritarian because of corruption. But we need a voting system. Something that is strict and within certain boundaries. A GOVERNMENT. lol

    $10 million RRC equals $5 usd? Where's this at? I went to the store and $1 million RRC equals $99 usd.

    @integra , theres a surplus in rrc. Certain hackers have had Billions of it. They dispersed to their friends. Now people are selling rrc for .50 - $1 per million on forums. Racing Rivals store has been made obsolete when it comes to rrc. Gems are the only VALUED currency nowadays. RRC is only used to upgrades & buying showroom cars. Inflation makes everything worse

    My apologies @Drag532 , ive only stated the people i've seen on many posts regarding drama , auctions , & other issues. I mean no disrespect to you.
