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.

Adding more gem rewards to showdown tiers

I feel (as well as team mates and friends) that the showdown rewards just don't do enough to put the effort in for them, by which I mean gems I know they don't want to give away gems constantly but I find myself sitting purposely at the second lowest tier of rewards just to get the extra gems instead of progressing more. I feel this is a shame as I know personally I would put more effort into showdown with gems rewards at every tier and I'm sure many people will agree to this, thank you :)

    This is one thing I have found funny and made no sense from the time I started tge game. Why does the lowest two tiers get the highest gems. Imo it should be the other way with the last two tiers getting 50 and 25 respectively.

    @JohnKIV if you add up what the crates you get at higher levels of showdown. They're alot more than just the 100 gems...
