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.

Why is it that I am thrown onto a track with my C1655 rated wrx coupe to race other wrx coupes that are rated at C1656? Now, if I take off more weight my wrx coupe will be rated at C1657 and I'll get thrown onto a track with evos rated at B1660? What's up with this, man? It seems I'm being penalized for finding the best tune for my car. Why?

I am frustrated with this. I thought it was something that would be eventually fixed.

    @Duvernay to elaborate on what k1tsalot posted. when you are tuned to 55 you are in the 1651-1656 lobby. when you are tune to 57 you are in the 1657-1663 lobby. that is why thats happening.the standard lobbies (in a tad more detail) are
    15xx-1610
    1611-1615
    1616-1620
    1621-1625
    1626-1630
    31-35
    36-40
    41-45
    46-50
    51-56
    57-63
    63-68
    69-1680+

    You can actully tune a car so that it still might be 56, but tips you up in a 56-63 lobby, watch the racetrack numbers. If they suddenly switch while your finetuning, then you need to remove a part.

    Tuning Weight tip: When you are tuning, wait till the fine tuning to make body upgrades. Those are cheap, instant and 1 to 3 pound increments. You can add / subtract to max out the lobby you are tuning to.

    @Howien yeah I know its not perfect, but I was just trying to give him basic lobby info lol. Thanks for the input though, I should have mentioned that myself, just slipped my mind XD

    These are still the same - the lobby ratings haven't changed.

    I want to know why there is nothing in game telling what the lobbies are? I had to find out by asking in lobby chat and I see newer players asking constantly in turf/showdown lobby chat.

    My guess is you often see that because people are double checking their builds and where their particular car is landing lobby wise. As for why there is no reference anywhere in the game to the lobby "brackets" - there never has been. I'm guessing, but I suppose that's part of the "underground" feel that CIE and now Glu wanted the game to have / convey.
