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.

Finally run me off

I'm gonna run this turf for my team but the final straw has been sucked dry. January 31, Carbonated's man with a plan, then Rysst, said:

Ghost Shifting existed before the lobby change as well, just wasn't as prevalent. It's a "flaw" in the way racing works currently. It's something we will address once things settle down with the transition.

Today, the preeminent ghost shifter and current inmate in charge of the asylum refers to ghost shifting as the "normal typical things."

Lesson here, get away with cheating long enough and it becomes accepted. I've had it

    Ghost shifting isn't cheating IMO - and I'm sh*t at it. It takes skill

    @RogerTheTodger it is a flaw in the game that racers discovered and are now benefitting from. I guess it's easier to say it's a norm and a typical thing than say it will be fixed since there is no apparent coding solution to it....or rather they don't want it fixed.

    The thing is that via the news comments it was officially legalised.

    I don't see it as cheating. Anyone can do it just takes practice much like drop launch, rev launch etc. everyone has the same opportunity to practice ghost shift and to use it in races. Cheating would be using something that not all players have the chance to use much like game guardian. Everyone in the game can ghost shift if they choose to.

    @getterdone look for it on YouTube. There is a video by prodigal grim which explains it perfectly.
