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 much $ will GLU lose with this turf boycott?

    Every single time people said the game would fall after major changes, has it? No. It's more reactionary than actual reasoning. People gotta adjust. I don't think they'll let things fall down that badly

    @dwdtuning That's what I mean, people invested too much time and money into the game for them to just drop it. I mean, my garage only worth $250 or so but that's still a decent amount of money to many on this forum.

    These moron's changed the events lmao. This is getting ridiculous. It's almost a clinic on how not to run a business. Keep kicking your customers in the teeth and eventually they will tell you to F$&K off and move on

    I'm down with the boycott. AND I'll take the following as reimbursement for the botched launch/shift controls and for being the lab rat to test them:
    5 gold crates
    3 silver crates ( before they are gone! )
    2 bronze crates
    $1,500,000
    1500 gems
    Throw in a wrx sport too for pain and suffering... THANKS !

    Because no matter how much we have invested. They still own it. We think we do, but we don't. We pay, they still own.

    Just keep on playing without spending any more. Used to buy a lot of gems from the game. Rrc where available from the bm..as things are turning to be it doesn't take to be a genious to understand that this would effect plenty of racers...if these stop spending like I'm gonna do than the game will go down. It's inevitable. The game was successful due to the fact that rrc was in abundance. Even physiologically...to get a mill for 60c and from the game it costs 90bucks it encouraged you to go on..to wage high bet races to pink a lot since rrc was easily available...don't bother. Just enjoy it while it lasts.

    There is no boycott. They are all running. Those teams are all running alts instead of mains. They are all going to get the car

    T1 is still drama. They are all running. Come on 3m already and still 6 hours to go in first event
  • JohnKIVJohnKIV Registered Users 3,620 Posts
    What turf boycott. Looking at the top 25 teams points I do not see any boycott.
  • dwdtuningdwdtuning Registered Users 12,932 Posts
