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.
Ok so one thing I have noticed and hate in this game is the rating system. It's a great idea but it's lacking a good way to stay within a lobby you want. You obviously want to be as high as you can in any lobby. I would like to see some improvement to the way to stay within a lobby with as much performance I can stuff into my cars. For instance a metering system or build bar. Right under the speed rating should be a bar that will show you haw close/far you are to the next Lobby or speed rating number. This way you won't have to install one part to find out your speed rating is now the absolute lowest in the next lobby. How ever this shouldn't effect how fast your tune is per lobby. Just a metering setup to help keep you in a specific lobby you are tuning for. Just a idea sorry about the rambling.
