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.
How Glu and the Long Beach team failed us
Here's a simple break down of how and why they failed . Totally overhauling 5.3 big mistake the game was hacker free during this time the graphics and game play was on point . Updating to 6.0 allowed for hackers to make new apks the main one being TechX at sinful android . Changing lobbies another huge mistake many people quit after the un needed lobby over haul . Not banning Accounts that did huge amounts of charge backs is another massive financial mistake on there end ! Why Glu wouldn't you ban people that charged back 1000s of dollars to get Enzo's out of the racer club or any other new thing added to the game ? Now let's adresss another in game expliot ghost shifting . You can can't skip gears in real life and your car go faster so why can you on racing rivals ? Who knows? I do know however a few players on the players council are all for it . I can gs some cars and I'm not for it it's a exploit that needs to be patched plain and simple . 6.0 I believe has been the major downfall of this once glorious game . Let's see since the update I can barely see race results . I strain to see dam near anything written on the game ! The launch key repeatedly fails now !!! A lot of times my shifter want freaking shift along with nos failing also . I
Once loved this great game . I'm still addicted to it I really do hope the people at carbonated listen to the people and address the issues at hand . Ps the current player council a mother fkin joke . If there was to be another one bring in actual players !! People that actually turf every week and play the game how it's supposed be played . Not people that only care about profits buy selling and trading !!
