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.

Something fishy is happening.

Has anyone seen GTfreek, velysaan and MRgee? They are in almost every room I join. All together. And today I was on my iPad a friend was on his, he raced mrgee using his datsun and mrgee had a Datsun. I challenged him on my iPad and he had a c7 corvette. We both raced him using 2 different devices and 2 different cars at the exact same time. Yet, he had a c7 vette vs me and a Datsun vs my friend. Same with velysaan and gtfreek. How can you race 2 cars with 2 different people from the same account? Always these 3 together in low level rooms too.

    They are AI bots that get placed in rooms that are a little sparse.

    They are put there so that every lobby has cars in there then once the room starts to fill up with real racers they leave one by one or all at once depending on how many racers show up

    They are bots to help keep lobbies alive when they start getting low. They eventually disappear once the lobby reaches a certain number of racers. Every bot you race is similar to the tune you're using yourself, so you have a good chance of winning rather than losing. Most people try to find them to help with tuning so that can get continuous times. I love your original post though, kudos! -Your Friendly Neighborhood NiNja
