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.
Showroom Shakeup and Gem Dropping
In preparation for the upcoming turf change (and because it just needed to be done), we evaluated the gem price of EVERY
car in the game. Some were way too high. But let’s face it, the whole thing needed an overhaul.
So what does this mean for you?
- The showroom (as a whole) dropped OVER 3,500 gems!
- The average car dropped 37 gems (That’s about a $1 a car). Some dropped 400 or more!
- We dropped the price on 41 cars.Nearly HALF the showroom!
- The price stayed the same on 49 cars.
- Only 6 cars went up.
How does this re-balance effect the turf points?
- Crush points are based on the value of the car starting with the original gem value for each car. This means that all cars need to be priced and weighted accordingly.
- By having all the cars priced appropriately, it ensures cars crush on a fair scale.
