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.

Hey all,

Just wanted to let you all know that this week, Racer Showdown is down for some maintenance. It shouldn't be too long, we do plan on having it return next week!

In the meantime, we have some exciting news to share shortly which I think a lot of you will enjoy!

    Being a mod and part of the players summit crew has it's perks. Haha. I can't say what is coming, but, hopefully, it'll be as well received as anticipated. I, for one, am very excited.

    Must be... Two new lobbies between 68 and max. Why else would showdown be down ? :#

    When will we get to know ???...danng.... you guys want to kill us with curiosity...
  • Roush SportRoush Sport Registered Users, Moderators 1,487 Posts
    Lol gotta build the hype. If a magician showed how the trick was done every time, where would the fun of trying to figure out how he did it be?
  • SWEETRIDE95SWEETRIDE95 Registered Users 100 Posts
    A 72 and 80 lobby would be nice. You could run maxed S and R classed cars and be competitive with everyone in the lobby.
    K1s get tiresome always wanting to race when your trying to run an R class car.
  • greenstagedgreenstaged Registered Users 655 Posts
    @SWEETRIDE95 I'm positive it's an addition in lobbies. I would say 73 instead of 72. That would also mean more tunes to work on. :)

    We get it. However, again, lots of people can play, so yes the world keeps spinning. We'll work on the game (we have people for that) while others will keep adding new stuff and what not (again,other people for that).

    If someone in a grocery store spills milk, does everyone stop what their doing to help? No, the baker keeps baking and the butcher keeps on ... butching.

    Galaxy Note 3 and 4, looks like we have other players using the same devices and are good. So it's not a gamewide issue, but more specific to your circumstances and perhaps those with similar circumstance... that takes longer to diagnose.

    In the meantime, the we'll also keep developing the game.

    I play on moto G 4th gen. 6 mos. old. On nougat 7.0 still can't race. Haven't been able to since 6.0 came out. 32 gig storage and 2 gigs ram. I can run csr2 which is a much high graphix demanding game without a millisecond of lag. RR lags so bad I have hit launch at the 3 yellow just to get an R/T below .100. smh
