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.

Reset?

Good morning, fellow Rivals! TH3 INS4NE M00N, here, with a VERY interesting thing that happened to me, this morning!

I was playing in the Tier 4 Cash Tournament, in my Maxed Nissan R90CK. I beat a Mazda RX7 GT Spec for the $150,000 prize, and then it was me vs a Koenigsegg ONE:1 for the $390,000 prize! I ALMOST beat it, but my R90CK started to slow down near the finish, which is when the Koenigsegg ONE:1 passed me and beat me!

After the cutscene of your vehicle slowing down, the screen went black, when all of a sudden, a message popped up, saying something like "The Race Will Now Automatically Restart.", then, THAT box disappeared, then ANOTHER box showed up saying something like "Waiting For Your Opponent To Ready Up.", then the race restarted!

I missed the perfect launch, shifted the first gear WAAAY to early, skipped over second gear into third gear, and did a VERY mediocre job shifting the rest of the way.

The Koenigsegg ONE:1 caught up to me, and it was a photo finish.

The Cutscene of my car slowing down played, as I then awaited the results of the race.

And I won!

But, what I wanna know, is what the heck happened with the race restarting?! That has never, EVER happened before!
