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.
New Tournament Hack (Date 05/05/2017)
Hello Guys, I am new to the forum. I made this account because for the past few days I've been experiencing something odd in the tournaments and it's really frustrating. I race in 1630 Tier 4 Tournaments mostly and in the past few days, I noticed a lot of users (Usually are Level 15 - 30) with 2016 2002 Tubromeister just sit there 24/7 and when u race them they lag during the race and their car magically teleports ahead of you just before the finish line and they win. Even if you get lucky and beat them in the race, when the result appear they win buy 0.2 secs. EVERY TIME. And the results takes way too longer than usual to load. It's absolutely frustrating to see someone just hack and get the rewards when you on the other hand put so much time and effort. Can someone please let me know what i am supposed to do. I reported to Glu twice. Yet to receive a reply.
PS: These are the users I have come across. "Nunu Lagi" .. "Domm Dominique"
.. and thanks for replying mate. Didn't think I'd get a reply so soon.
No problem - glad to help, it's what I do!
As for how to keep yourself updated - not really. Reason being - when they "fix" something, they don't make it publicly known, as doing so only inspires those trying to "cheat" to give up on that method, and hunt to find another. It's a double edged sword, and the battle will never end. As soon as one exploit is resolved, another will take it's place....it's been that way for as long as this game has been around, and even before it (back in the Nitto days).
I can only hope that a staff member will make posts in the section labeled "The Carbonated Garage" in an effort to keep the player base as informed as they can (without that informing being a detriment to what they are trying to accomplish).
I'm sorry if that answer gives you the thought of "well, that sucks".
