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.

CupcakeAds Have Taken Over

    No, I don't like you. I don't have a reason you would comprehend.

    You might want to check your browser. We don't have advertisements on the forums.

    As for the game, yes we do. Lots of free to play games do. Just like TV.

    As far as the RR in game ads, from what I understand only players under a certain level get those. I think its level 15-20 or something like that. I noticed this when I created a new account, I got ads until I got past level 20

    @Koaleader171 Well mainly happens on my Samsung Light but not much on my new Samsung Tablet
  • Koaleader171Koaleader171 Registered Users 458 Posts
    It only happens on my new accounts. My main and my secondary were both created ages ago before they started the ads. And I've never had an ad on them @K1TSAL0T
