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.

    Lol bye bye gs ;)

    Useful reply, again, thanks for that. We know they plan to remove. This threads purpose is in hopes they find a better solution. If they can remove it without changing rest of core mechanics, great. I still won't like it but I'll swallow it.

    Care to offer up something useful instead of "bye bye thing I can't / don't like to do"

    Playing field is already level.

    Why not just raise the class of the cars that respond well to GS?
    If you're in a c clas 1650 SVT, would you expect to win a race against an R2 NSX RE? No. So you don't race it (unless you're going for a long shot or hope they mess up / foul which we all do). Same logic applies with GS in the picture. If you don't GS, you don't race same car that is commonly GS'd. Plenty of other cars to race. If you're in a 1650 c class SVT, you wouldn't race a 1650 C class Subi Coupe, just like you wouldn't / shouldn't expect to win a race against a 1650 R2 NSX RE.

    No one said I can't or don't like to do it. You assume that. Your assumption is wrong. I choose not to do it. I see it as a desease, just liked I did not want nos to be removed. How I feel.

    without gs cars like the Renault turbo, lambo huracan and subi wrc are useless piles of crap. I say keep gs in and if you want to be competitive, learn how to do it.

    Actually they can remove it with out messing with mechnics. Just have it so shifts with in a certain time span does not register. @aubassplayer has had good ideas on how to "fix" it before.
  • SM4CKSM4CK Registered Users 62 Posts
    That's a really good idea and probably relatively simple fix. Makes sense, a different shift time block setting for each of the different classes of cars maybe.. but something else will probably get screwed up during the process so idk if it's worth it..

    Personally i don't like GS, That's basically racing a race car with a stock transmission, not too efficient. I like they intend to remove it, but they should put something back in it's place. I suggest a race transmission (different from the change in shift time currently), that is optimized for each car. This would allow, the fast guys to do their thing, while within the intended aspect of the game

    All they have to do is make it so the game doesn't recognize shifts closer than .25 of a sec. a part. No car in the game has shifts closer than that(if you shift normally). And to gs you have to shift faster than .12/sec. So if the game doesn't recognize shifts closer than .25. it will eliminate gs..

    Seems easy enough. Then the Jetta and Renault will be back in the worthless p.o.s. column where they should be lol

    Might not work, Cars like Furia will suffer. They rev up so fast it will make you miss the shift points

    I can't remember the last time I've seen a Furia in the wild, racing.

    Personally I feel they should leave GS alone. It will render far to many vehicles useless unless they have a contingency plan to boost every single GS vehicle ruined to a similar BM speed. If carbonated refuses to accommodate or cannot accommodate then it will put those racers at a terrible disadvantage. So, I guess it will be fair to ruin the garage of the GS'ers even though others have the opportunity to do the same but do not want to?
