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.
Team individual turf scores
So back in the day, our team individual turf scores didn't reset to zero until the beginning of the next turf. This was great for team leads because we could check Sunday night or Monday, & pay out rewards to our best team members.
Then—under Glu—that changed so that the scores reset immediately at the end of turf. It was a bit of a hassle because it meant team leads now had to log on just before turf ends every Sunday to record final scores. But the devs compensated by being willing to send team leads their team's scores on request if we happened to not be able to log in before end of turf. In fact, that willingness continued under Carbonated.
Until last week. Now I'm being told by support that providing my team's scores somehow violates user agreements, goes against company policy, yada yada. So two questions:
1. How can it violate company policy to provide scores that were visible to everyone on the team up until the moment turf ended? It's not like I'm asking for any private data that would compromise anyone's account. (i.e., what possible risk does that entail?)
2. Can you please go back to the old system of zeroing scores at the start of turf? That would make the problem go away entirely.
