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.

    Ryyst, personally I don't think there's much wrong with the original campaign,any issues new racers have,used to get help from the RR community, that is half of the beauty of the game. Just feel it's in need of something fresh to reignite both old and new racers alike. What do others think???

    @Ryyst what is going on with crates won in showdown? I always try showdowns when I have time, I don't have an exact figure but I would say the last 20+ crates hat I had won have been cars. The ones that have been in there for a painfully long time: 128i, s2K, m3, z28, 370z, and gtsr and furai and ford gt. I refuse to believe it is completely random but regardless maybe it is time to get different but comparable cars in those crates. In past months I had been able to work on blueprints, win paint, rims, even the turf eligibles.

    @[RR]Ryyst, the hacks are back and in big number. It's getting out of control. This must be fixed soon or many legitimate players will no longer play, or at the very least, will no longer bet. Maybe reverting to 5.3 will be better until things are ironed out with the hacks, paint, rims, global chat, lag, font sizes, garage loading issues, apk force painting, and other issues are resolved with 6.0.2. @[RR]DownShift

    I'd like to know how this is an acceptable response. A cheater in a race = an invalid race. Any other circumstance it would be a DQ and I would have won the car.... Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this is foul play on GLU's part here. <img src="https://scontent.fsnc1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/15578579_10210282139188561_5079996002541591129_n.jpg?oh=8473d2867df18548953c642bce694f08&oe=58F6D77E" alt="" />

    Well I'm letting you know... this is terrible customer service policy.
    "Hi there - we are seeing they were cheating but you're SOL because you lost anyway".... is the message i'm seeing.

    Why is it so hard for customer service to replace cars lost due to hacks and cheats with proof? Spent lots of money never asked for anything. I get cheated. Show proof and they say screw you.

    The only proof we can accept is from our logs. In an age where screen shots can be doctored, we simply choose to take that out of the equation and rely on our own data. And yes, we've seen some really bad photo shop attempts.
    So start adding some of us older players to some low level bug team. I for one post every single error i can find. Since you guys most likely cant put in the hours racing people on the game to actually find out. I have a s7 edge with built in screen recorder would video proof be acceptable or would yall just tell us that " video footage could be doctored also."? I mean its going to be practically impossible to take the time to make a custom video and lying about people hacking just to get yall to fix OUR game. We constantly send screen shots and get accused of photoshopping lmmfao. Yall are moronic if you think we would waste our time to fake pics of modded .apk times to help GLU fix OUR game.. do tell me what do we get out of lying about someone hacking RR and acually trying to get GLU to fix it. Without us there is no GLU or Racing Rivals. We try to help out and get told our proof isnt proof when all we want is a safe race

    tournament cheaters.

    but you know what? Customer service would say I would have lost anyway or that I have a connection issue...

    Because they have great customer service that cares about players that play without cheating. Nobody acknowledges a problem. And Customer Service policy is to make everyone feel like they're stupid as hell for even contacting them.

    @dulwhite how about the fact your using a glitched Charher SE to win tournaments? That's not cheating?

    I'm racing what GLU gives me. Still, you're circumventing the main point of my argument. And another thing you can't bring up to customer service.
