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.

Unable to private message friend

My friend keeps sending me private messages but when I try to send a message back I get a message that says "INVALID_PARAMETERS". I tried to play RR on an android phone to see if I could message him but I got the same error. At first I thought it might be because he was playing on a previous version, but when I used my brothers phone that had the very last version before 6.0, the app made me update to the latest version.

    We're looking into these issues with chat but I'd like to confirm a couple of things with you:
    1. Are you both on the same version of the game? If so, which version?
    2. Are you both on the same platform? iOs or Android?
    Thanks!

    Actually, I had just found out that he was in fact playing on a previous version, so anyone that hasn't updated to 6.0 won't be able to receive private messages or team chat messages from 6.0 users unless they're able to join each other in a multiplayer lobby and use the lobby chat.

    Thank you for the additional info. For now, I'd suggest having them update to 6.0 as we investigate.

    Update: I'm unable to private message another friend of mine that is using the same version of the game as me, but he is using a Samsung Galaxy S5 while I'm using an iPad. We still are able to message each other in team chat, though.

    Me and my friend both have iPhones (6 and a 6s) both running the newest iOS 10 and newest update on the game. We have same issues. Sometimes it works. And then other times it doesn't. So I doubt it's game/device/version. I think it's server maybe cuz sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Hope that helps a little @[RR] DownShift
