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 Blog #6 Supplemental - Graphics Comparison 1

Here are some screenshots from various devices using the same exact car, with shaders on (if applicable) and just using the devices Screenshot function.

First shows the Cobra Jet from Rivals 5.3...

We then use older devices with the lower graphic scale settings and make our way to newer devices with higher graphic scale settings.

5.3

iPad 2


galaxy s3

HTC One

iPhone 5

Galaxy S6

iPad Air

iPhone 7+

This is your baseline. You can see how the game looks on an older device and on higher end devices.

Excluding cars with Matte Paint and Flake Paint (which are separate issues) if your cars look different or worse than the screenshots above please post a screenshot of a car (must not have matte or flake paint) and list what device you are using and your Racer Name.

I'm working on gathering screen shots from racing as well for more comparisons.

    @Caboose1744 Which Racer Account were those taken from.

    When you guys post screenshots make sure you let me know what racer name you used. I can find your exact device model easier that way, but still good to list your device here for others to see and compare.

    Can't figure out how to post a screenshot on to this forum, but the Lamborghini Veneno on my iPad Mini 4 looks so unappealing it makes me want to delete the game, there is no detail to the car what so ever and I know for sure my iPad Mini 4 can handle pretty high level graphics with no game play issues, also my IGN: Koenigsegg One:1

    does the Galaxy S6 picture cover the Galaxy S6 Active phone? i mean its pretty close anyway....Just thought id ask

    What's up!
    So I have a Samsung Galaxy s6 (not the edge) have been playing your game since my s4 active was still new... loved the old layout.
    it seems that the processing of the new back grounds and cars is causing my phone to lag during races and other movements such as rotating car in garage and when I'm in a race and try to use multiple taps to get a good rev it starts to trip over its self causing a launch lag effect traction loss ect..
    also the new format seems to put more strain on my eyes. on your old format I could play the game till the battery died while plugged in(I've done it to my s4 and s6...) now I get a bit of eye strain after about 10 min in the garage (doesn't seem as bad in the upgrade menu)
    well I'm trying to give it a shot but I really don't like this new direction and as far as how it looks on my phone both the S4 and the S6 look like the picture of the S3 you had up regardless of the graphics settings with everything off the movements seemed a hair smoother that's about it ..I also have screen shots of 10 load errors outta 16 I've gotten in the last two days some I managed to get header with time stamp..

    Okay, looks like you are using a Motorola XT901 which isn't on our list, so I'll add it to the list of devices we need to asses.

    Have a question do you think putting less memory intensive background may help I mean I know you're trying to render the background in the foreground and the cars and everything else in a higher depth but we don't need so much the cars are only going in a straight line
