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.

Tournament Exploits

[RR] Prodigal Grim[RR] Prodigal Grim Junior Member206 PostsRegistered Users, Administrator, Moderators
Reports of players abusing the tournaments have been coming in. We’re working on fixing it but it’s not as simple as pressing a button. So while we’re working it out, we’re keeping an eye out for these dastardly players and kicking them off the track for a week. Cheats and exploits have consequences, you WILL get banned.

Race on and keep it legit!

    Is this why the 150k tournaments are gone?

    Punish everyone instead of those doing bad.... Same old ways as before.
    Yes I'm a jerk and proud of it.

    No, I don't like you. I don't have a reason you would comprehend.

    People shouldn't abuse it also it's a glitch people use to automatically let them when you race you beat them but end up with a DNF at the end

    @DuceRee yeah I don't use mine very often. Only every now and then when I'm bored and want some quick cash. But I do use it to mess with jumpers I find in 1650 lobbies. Lol they flip out when my 1650 hits 8.7. lolol

    No these guys have found a way to alter (if this is the exploit they are referring to, because from what I've been told there is more then one) the way the tourney acts towards other competitors. So it will bypass you without you even having a chance to race. Almost like timing you out and not even giving you a chance to compete. I've also heard people complaining about there not being a way to prevent cars from changing their ratings when entering the lobbies for tourneys like how it used to be the case in the normal rooms. Either way they have work to do and will probably grind it out to get us the tourneys back because they do really help our new players and even our established players.

    I truly hope the reason the 150k tourney was taken down was to fix the issues.
  • [RR] Prodigal Grim[RR] Prodigal Grim Junior Member 206 PostsRegistered Users, Administrator, Moderators
    Yes, it was taken down so we can fix the problems.
  • JohnKIVJohnKIV 3,620 PostsRegistered Users
    Thanks Grim. Was there a in game notification that was the reason or did a I miss it? If there was no notification to players why not?
  • [RR] Prodigal Grim[RR] Prodigal Grim Junior Member 206 PostsRegistered Users, Administrator, Moderators
    It was there and then gone. It was my fault. I'm still learning the notification and messaging system tool.
  • TsukikageTsukikage 1 PostsRegistered Users
    Good to see it's being fixed. It happened to me a couple of times where it started the race I grabbed a perfect launch even and about half way down the track it just stopped and told me I was "disqualified" and the other guy automatically won.

    It's probably easier to just get rid of tournaments like they should global chat and figure out some other feature to implement

    To developers. You have really pissed away a good game. You have taken away the ability to make money and gems in the game because what you are just that greedy? You expect us to pay $75000 for a mediocre set of wheels but if we sell a set to game we get $500 that's bùllshít. 20 gems for completing all those daily goals and can't even buy your cheapest crate. What are you thinking? No way I'm paying you 25000 gems to buy back 68 tuned concept. Do you just pull numbers out of a hat when deciding value. Now tournament gone so need to make money too tune for turf sell off cars is about only option. I will give my cars away before buying gems until you fix game in players favor, not saying give game away but give us a chance. Probably the worst decisions I've ever seen I such a popular game. You really blew it guys. Good luck.i think ill give csr a chance now.

    The people who are in charge of the game now are trying to recover the game we all once knew and loved. The problem at hand is there was so much bullshit back and forth at GLU that nothing ever got done. All the things they could have changed and should have changed were never addressed. All the real issues at hand like the tourney glitch were never addressed because the leadership was poor. Carbonated is pushing to give us a great game with a controlled economy where the money and vehicles we earn are actually worth what they should be instead of an inflated market that is flooded with Middle Eastern farmed money. Give them some time to fix this and as you wait just buy some mills. They are still under a dollar each and are very easy to obtain.

    As for the buy back on the vehicle, that is also something they had been discussing. We all know to buy back a max civic is stupid because you can build one for way less then what it would cost you to buy one back if you lost one in slips. The value of a vehicle is a formula that has been the same for ages so for you to turn around and bitch about it now is stupid. Carbonated didn't create it they just haven't gotten around to fixing it.

    Giving out your cars will be your call and not theirs. To me doing that would be stupid because once all the issues are fixed you will come crawling back. Especially if you think that CSR with their

    NEGATIVE TIME RUNS (people can run sub 0 second runs and win without you ever having a chance.)

    will provide you with a better experience. They don't even have pink slips on that game.

    Days Ago I was racing a Tournament, when it starts the "countdown screen" appears and then back to the matches screen, I start a chat then in the background the race was started, I closed the chat and the matches screen appears again, back to chat and the race has finished showing a DNF for me. Next time that thing happened to me I race in the chat screen.

    @theghost911 you are quite contradictive. In tournaments you need to win just the same unless .......
  • SWEETRIDE95SWEETRIDE95 100 PostsRegistered Users

    Unless what

    @greenstaged

    You need cash to enter tournament if you don't have a token. You have to win once to break even, and twice to come out ahead. So it's win or nothing.
