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.

Racing Rivals need to implement an ICON that represent selling and trading on ROADMAP.

This game is still an early development, but the time is coming near in which the game need to improvise a method that allow users to safely sell and trade their used vehicle. I am not losing hope in Racing Rival to be created for money, but for consumers entertainment and interaction with other online users.
I can assure majority of players on Racing Rivals have encountered at least one trouble with another player in deals of vehicle, cash, gems, parts, ect. These are reoccurring problem on this game daily! We all know that the game is not perfect in terms of server, connection, and other bugs. HOWEVER! Creating a new icon on this game that feature such interaction for users to USE can benefit the game and community many ways.
This new feature will promote more online users to stay on the server which can uplift the spending on Racing Rival to help or give creators to develop new helpful tools that can trigger new crowd and consumer into the game. Also, players will feel more secure and trusted among other Racing Rival Users, therefore more active users on the community. Yet, this game can bring a whole new style of gameplay that gives player the opportunity to not only race competitively, but negotiate smartly by uplifting their reputation along with street credit they earn.
The whole point of this game is to keep users to enjoy the game and entertain for years to come. Racing Rival, you have listened and rewarded the community by reading the threads. Now it is time to read this, and think about this idea for the years to come. Thank you!

    We've talked about a "Used Car Lot/Trading" feature on and off for awhile now. The problem is, that this is actually a pretty big undertaking and something like this would also need to generate money for us. I know, how dare we want to make money off a free game! Well, lets just get past the fact that we are a company, and we like to get paid and most of us would like to pay our rent and buy food. So yes, everything we do essentially works towards driving people to buy things.....

    So yeah, we've talked about it, and we've come up with some ideas, but we're not at a point where we believe it would be financially viable for us to undertake. Maybe in the future...

    Well I appreciate the response regarding my post with the THOUGHT that the company including you shared that "it is an idea and can possibly happen in the future." Crossing my fingers.

    Well if that does happen then that takes the adrenaline out of trading

    People need to take risks and have to have trust in the other player in order to have a good fair trade
  • NateVong02NateVong02 Junior Member Registered Users 602 Posts
    I mean when you get scammed you usually are suppose to think back and see what you did wrong and correct your mistakes the next time you trade!

    Theres another game I've played for several years that has this trading feature, does it eliminate scams, not hardly, but it does reduce the risk substancially. The way thier system is, is basically a consignment shop. Players can list items for whatever price they want, which makes it competitive, and they charge the premium (Real $) paid for currency for more slots to sell more items at once. Hell, make a 1 gem listing fee, I promise you'll make some money with this, as I would use it to avoid scams. The extra listing slots on the game arent cheap either, charge what you think would be fair.

    There is also a personal trade window within the game that is used privately between 2 players. One player places an item or rrc in the window while the other player does the same. I place 1m rrc in the trade window, the other player places a car, then confirm trade and poof, instant no hassle, scam proof deal.

    I'm not a video game developer, so i have no idea how much of a pain this could be to implement, but if it's not that hard, help us legit folks out guys!

    I personally say before they even worrie about another feature in the game they take car of cleaning up the bugs in everything else.
    When the game is operating smoothly and we don't have to worrie about losing our accounts, or not being able to get in our accounts, or losing car's due to "connection loss" in tournament pinks event's, and I'm sure many more bugs i have not yet had the pleasure of experiencing. Than worrie about undertaking another new feature.
    Don't get me wrong I'm with all of you! I would love a lagit trading option. But lets not pile more on an already problematic game..

    How to report player that take my cars and then ignored me?
  • JohnKIVJohnKIV Registered Users 3,620 Posts
    @saladin_gt3 you dont. The game developers do not care about you getting scammed and will not do anything to help you.
