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.

Update 6.1.2 - For Android

Hey all,

We have just pushed a new update for Android players that should be available on Google Play soon.

This update should resolve the crashing on loading and after racing issues.

The update may take a few hours to propagate to all the Google Play servers.

    Please advise as to the following:

    Make and Model of the device
    Google Play Version
    Android Version
    Racer Name
    When it crashed - does it happen with any car? A specific car? In any event (multi, campaign,turf, showdown), or a specific event only?

    Please be as thorough as possible in your response, as the more thorough you are, the better the team will be in attempting to re-create the issue that you are seeing.

    I just wanted to comeback and give a update.....first race after the update the game crashed. (As did a teammate with the same issue). For some reason this has gone away and the game is back to normal for both of us. Strange but hey.....we're happy!!

    Ok so it appears I spoke to soon, and this is really random.....heres a video taken on 3-17-17 @9:15pm eastern time

    Crashes while trying to load. Crashes directly after a race (winning or losing) in multi-player, tournament and showdown. Last two crashes were after pinks. One won then crqshed so no crush points of course, and then one lost. Game would restart at all so I removed it and am currently downloading it again.

    Still crashing in regular, showdown and turf lobbies.
    I upgraded from an S4 to this S7 recently to avoid issues of lagging.
    Not sure which is worse: constant crashing with my new S7 or constant lag with my old S4.
    What a choice I have huh?
    Game being run is most current download available from Google play.
    Please help!

    I have not had any crashing, but when I am in my garage, particularly when adding upgrades, I lose the icons at the bottom of the screen. I can't change cars, upgrade, or maintenance. I only have the RACE option. I have to log off completely and restart the game to continue. If I just race and maintenance, it's pretty stable. Too much adding upgrades or a lot of car swapping makes it screw up again.

    Game still crashes, as does with many others .

    Crashed after multi, showdown, tournaments, turf.... while trying to load after crashing...

    This is stupid. We can't turf, can't showdown, can't do tournament, can't tune (can't see times).....it's just wasting time, money, and gems. At some point my team will kick me for not making min, which is increasingly difficult!

    Its been going on for over two weeks now........ come on.......

    They need to do something to accommodate for this ridiculousness!

    Ya know, I'm not gonna sit and bash.....or call you guys every name in the book. I am however starting to wonder why I continue to spend money on a broken game? I've (we've) missed out on the past 2 turfs, multiple days of showdown, some days it's a pain just to complete daily challenges because the game crashes so much.

    Yet we get new crates, new cars, and racer club thrown at us.....but have no idea when the issues at hand will be fixed. As a player who enjoys the game and spends my hard earned cash on it.....how do you think this makes some of us feel? I've been peeping around since the update on Friday and apparently mums the word??

    Getting more frustrated by the day.........

    So has the dev team been able to recreate the issues that is as racers are experiencing?

    Other players that I've spoken with so far have had the crashing issues go away once the updated.

    I've updated to 7.0, knock on wood.....no crashes yet. Talking with a few friends on Android, they don't have the option to upgrade to 7.0. Is this issue still being looked into for them?
  • NotPhunnyNotPhunny 54 PostsRegistered Users
    I went to 7.0 as well with my s7. Don't know if I'll risk turning my s4 into a brick trying to put 7.0 on it. We see how it goes. Hope for best
  • Supra_Mk4Supra_Mk4 2 PostsRegistered Users
    Thats nice but Android 7 is not avaible for the A5(2016) so far
  • NotPhunnyNotPhunny 54 PostsRegistered Users
    Looks like I spoke too soon. Third race in turf just now and it crashed. Wasn't a pinks race, it was just a warmup few races with my 1656 300zx car. Oh well.
  • penismightierpenismightier Junior Member 939 PostsRegistered Users

I tried to upgrade parts watching videos after videos were over it didn't upgrade parts.before I closed my other account I was having problems with turf wars, I was in a 1668 lobby and got smoked by 1680 that's messed up I don't know who was running this turf but they don't need to do it again I stopped racing this turf on Sunday. If that's the way things are going to be run I will never turf again.
