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.
RR Foxx or any other developer please explain. A lot of the gem only cars will DQ if they run too fast. Why is this? Cars that cost real money should not be doing this. Examples:
A Class Corvette- crossed the line at 8.24 get a dq. You have to sand bag it to keep from getting a dq. Best I can manage is 8.33 and that's sandbagging the car.
B Class GMC Syclone- cross the line at 9.07-9.09 gets a dq. (This happened 5 races in a row) Best I can manage is a 9.100 with out getting a dq. Again...sandbagging.
C Class Mitsubishi Eclipse- cross the line at low 9.2's gets a dq. Best time managed is 9.29. My personal best is 9.33.
R Class Mclaren MP4-12C GT3- crossed the line at 7.25-7.27 dq every time. Best time managed so far sandbagging is 7.370
Why do real money cars not work properly? I've gotten multiple dq's running too fast in these cars. And it isn't just me, several people in many groups have complained about the same thing with the very same cars. Can this please get resolved?
