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.

Are you experiencing latency or a drop in frame rate?

When describing what you are experiencing, please be as specific as possible. What are you experiencing? Delay when you tap something? Everything slows down and gets choppy? Does it happen all the time? When do you experience this? In the garage? During the race? Do you have to restart often?

    Throughout the whole game everywhere I experience bad latency. More so when I'm in my inventory.. It's so bad that I can't race with that device. So I just keep it for a storage for my nice cars and extra inventory. In my ign that is not a zero. That is an oh.

    So do you use a different device to race? And a different racer?

    Device: galaxy s4 (sgh-i337)(at&t version)
    Os: 5.0.1

    I experience lag, not very severe lag, but severe enough to render the game unplayabe but the thing is i will experience lag for like 5mins then the game would go back to normal for some time then the lag starts again because of that i started running the game on pc on an emulator which is working fine, hardly any lag except for latency due to slow wifi, but one really annoying problem that seems to happen both on my phone and the emulator is that the replays of races dont play out to the results, it shows as much as the cars passing finiah line the it freeses for a second then nothing but a black screen after that wont go away(black screen as in the replay, not the UI, The UI would be normal jus no replay unless i click on a racer in lobby and click off back or refresh and then it repeats, race to line then nothing, it occasionally shows results and will start another replay but rarely) oh and i get like a 1 second lag everytime a new car joins the lobby, like i can tell when a new car joins without looking cuz it just freeze for like a sec (on emulator, this doesnt happen on phone.. And emulator is running android 4.4.2 if that helps) and thats all i got, game basically ok for me otherwise... And fix the o and 0 in the game, cant tell them apart from 6.0 update rolled out...

    Terrible lag on Samsung galaxy tab E haven't been able to play at all since 6.0 update
  • BlitzChaosBlitzChaos 419 PostsRegistered Users
    Galaxy Note5 on 6.0.1
    LG V20 on 7.0.1
    It only really drops frames and stutters with input (Such as scrolling or rotating car in garage) or scrolling through menus. So really it happens when navigating the game, which is all the time. I even did a hard reset to the V20 since it was brand new and didn't have anything on it really but even then the problem persisted.

    As far as IOS goes, I doubt there are issues in regards to performance and latency at all. This game is the stereotypical Android port of a game. Buggy, unoptimized, and overall a terrible performing mess. But I know Carbonated will fix this within the coming months

    Above you posted that it's hard to race due to frame drops and lag, yet....you took the risk of loosing a maxed car....why? Also, how do you know it was he that DNF'd you, and not your device dropping connection? (Bear in mind just how far the signal from your device has to go before it hits Glu's servers....from your device, through your modem, through your provider, out across the interwebs, etc)

    Ign.. PLANET BOOM
    PHONE info: LG K10 ( 6GB free memory) running android 6.0.1

    Issues: since 6 0 in game racing is near impossible. Everything is delayed in race. My reaction time is usually.288 or worse, if I need to shit at 7k rpm, I have to tap the button at 5k and hope. I have not been racing because of this.

    This is the only app I have downloaded on this phone. I use home wifi and the phone is not jail broken. When I contacted customer service, I was told that all they can suggest is too make sure I don't have other apps running. My wife has the same phone with same issues. Her ign is lilpoo.

    Finally my neighbor plays on a old lg volt, 8gb, android 4.0 in that area. Has less than 1 gb of free memory and the only issue he experiences is fps from third shift until the end if race. Every time. It looks like a slowed down video that flashes in and out. His ign is Nwowolfpac.

    That said we all have the same issue with the launch button, color of rims, and underglow. Underglow is orange at front and rear bumper but yellow in the middle.

    Any help to correct these issues with the next update would be greatly appreciated.
