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.

+*+*+* SERIOUSLY!!! NO HEADS UP OR AN ADVANCE NOTICE?!?!??!?!!! *+*+*+*+*

    They did what they had to do to prevent people from being disconnected anytime someone raised or tried to race you pinks.

    So, I left this post up to address your concern, however if you continue to use profanity you will be removed from the community.

    So here is the deal.. You know when you drive your car and all of a sudden a rock hits your windshield.... Did the rock give you fair warning?

    If all of a sudden there is a power out due to some unforeseen circumstance, the power company probably didn't have the foresight nor does it employ fortune tellers to determine that an outage was going to occur.

    Issues arise. This wasn't something planned. If it was, ,we would have let you know. We found ourselves with a situation, players were not able to trade in the cars the had won in turf. So we of course have to look into that issue, and we did see there was a problem. So we had to shut down pink slip betting while we worked on the issue. We didn't plan it. We didn't know that something all of a sudden would stop working. So there was no way to let you know in advance that we were going to shut down pink slips because... we didn't know we were going to have to until when we had to.

    So we apologize for not using tarot cards or modified deloreans to help us determine when issues happen that cause us to shut parts of the game down so we can give prior warning.

    shit happens and happens all the time and u cant blame the game maker for that cuz it happens

    remember whoever made tgis game is a human being ...abit greedy but still a human and there will always be a mistake its normal and that happens


    glu did a great job so far in trying tocfix / improve the game ALTHOUGH they need to listen more to customers ideas and suggestions..ok to be fair they do from time to time but takes time

    anyway please dont keal flaiming at racing rivals emplotees i know they do deserve it sometimes but truth to be said they are human beings cant throw your garbage on them

    as said shit happens and happens all the time give it sometime and they will fix the game
