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.

    Hey all,

    We all deeply appreciate your patience while we work through the issues affecting players. We have looked at all the info and feedback you all have provided and we are going to be burning the midnight oil as it were to get these issues resolved.

    We are currently testing a new update which should resolve many of these issues.

    Matte and Flake Paint issues
    Wheel issues
    Over all graphics
    Global Chat (option to turn off notifications)

    We will also continue to look into the feedback provided. We've seen your concerns about the following:

    User Interface (Color scheme, fonts)
    Race Results screens
    Racing Buttons
    Text sizes
    Thumbnails and more

    6.0.2 doesn't even let me play!!!! all it says is reload every time I open the game!!!
  • dulwhitedulwhite Registered Users 118 Posts
    Thanks for the patch. Already dramatic improvement noticed.

    With this round of fixes there are new problems. The experimental graphics now appear to have taken a step back rather than forward. On my HTC 10, the cars look more cartoonish then they were before the latest update, especially those with matte paints. However, I was never a fan of the 6.0 graphics to begin with, so I switch to the 5.3 graphics to go back to what I thought would be more to my liking only to find out that there are issues with those graphics as well. Everything is dark, except for the glare that comes off cars at certain angles. While it's understandable that the game is getting more realistic, does that justify adding in elements that are negative experiences? The mattes look fine in 5.3, all things considered, but now colored rims are distorted. My cars that are supposed to be Midnight Blue are currently dark gray.

    The home screen interface is still a gross misuse of space compared to what it was in 5.3, which I support by saying that the fact that I have to scroll down on the left side of the screen to claim my performance crate while 2/3s of the right side of the screen are empty, which is just plain silly. The game still reeks of trying to get too fancy when you already had such a good thing going. This patch makes it easier for me to continue my hiatus from Racing Rivals and inch closer and closer to not playing ever again.

    I still feel that the numbers while tuning for horsepower, torque, weight are too small to read, framerate still should be 60+ but it is locked at 30. But still, this is a huge step forward from the previous..."update".

    I still get crazy amount of lag at launch. Impossible to launch. Before 6.0 this was my main kill device. Had 0 lag.

    @[RR] DownShift/@ [RR] Ryyst, I have the nexus 7, pixel lx and the note 7. This is horrible nothing but lag and now that I can actually get in to my garage it takes like 2 mins for me to get in the shipyard and when I try to get in a lobby it takes just as long. I don't care about the cheap as gift that everyone got...I just want no lag. Once again I will be missing turf cause the lag is bad. IGN: N A S T Y (2 spaces)
  • dulwhitedulwhite Registered Users 118 Posts
    Still want the frame rate to be unlocked to 60fps

    Are you talking about low fps (performance), tuning issues or about rims ?

    @RR.Dropshift @RYYST The cars and crates are appeciated. But on my android devices I'm still experiencing slowness in garage moving around and upgrading cars also when switching to a different car and garage dissapers. Lag on clicking to race opponents. Lag on the drop and shifts it's just like the tach needle is in slow motion sometimes. My ios is ok so far but I experimented with graphics on and off and all of that makes it worse if any extra things are selected in options menu. 2 weeks ago my kids and I hit 61st place no self crushing or straight up got after it. It was a huge struggle with the android devices as if it was what it use to be it wouldn't of been so hard. My phone use to do perfect everything before 6.0.1 and 6.0.2 now it's equivalent to a dial up speed game performance wise and it's frustrating when Trying do what you need to do to play and have fun.
    Devices still affected and almost no change seen even after the 6.0.2 update are.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 4
    Samsung Galaxy tab 3/4

    @Ryyst; Thanks for always keeping the RR community as informed as possible. What is GLU doing to patch up whatever it is some racers are exploiting which makes them run faster times than the legit racers, when will that issue be patched up? It seems that whenever a "new" update gets released new issues associated with release pops up giving RR community new lever of frustration and disgust. Not to mention that much longer the wait for the game to be as hack/glitch free. My perspective on this latest "speed glitch/hack" whatever you want to call it is how can someone find a folder which to exploit and use to their benefit so soon after a major release if not being pointed the way by insider with prior knowledge of the ins and outs of that particular update. That said, i hope this latest glitch, loop hole gets patched up ASAP because i'm seeing more people just not playing or investing their hard earned money on this game. I know for one i'm not and wont be until they patch up this latest issue.

    Bossmann out.
