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.

I figured something out

So I'm out of turf cars and decided to run cars I hate. I was in a 1650 skyline (r32 I think) and I'm in a lobby that has people that can barely run 10.2. I suk in this car and have a horrible history with it. So I think the game matches racers according to performance with a particular car. If I was in my 1650 focus people would be much faster.

    I've noticed the same thing. It does say "joining best track"

    We always said being placed in lobbies is not solely by car rating, its complex

    Due to the complex race lobby sorting system, and the ability to join friends, the lobbies aren't easy to race in, that's what makes the game challenging and fun!

    I was just stating that if I had my 1650 focus I wouldn't have been put in that lobby. Didn't say anything about rating in and of itself. Just seemed that since I can't drive that car and have a horrible history with it, the game put me in a 1650 lobby with players that didn't run a 1650 time as well as should be.

    Pink all stars... Only people who have played this game for a long time know them. They dominated turf for a long time

    That's interesting. I race in off-peak hours in the lower rated lobbies, so there's usually not enough people to sort such a way, so I would have never noticed this. At least not anytime soon.

    Im not sure that they put too much effort into lobby placement other than what lvl your car is. It seems very varied from night to night. But the whole join friend bs should stop (unless you join one that would regularly be in the same lobby as you) After winning 90% of my races the other night, I race someone for 10k (i don,t spend any real money on this game....just time and effort) Get my 9.4 sec 1656 car beat by an 8 sec a car @ 1670. BS

    Not really... We can force the game to allow us into any race room we want. I can even join turf races with incorrect specifications
