  1. NOOOOOOOOOOO!
    I'm currently at 219 796 z silver, I was very close when it was 220000 zSilver, now I need 70204 more to redeem the Razer Blackwidow Chroma V2, which will take 2-4 months depending on how much time I able to spend playing in front of the PC.
    I'm so close and my zSilver expires in October 2018, without the paid to play I don't think I can reach the needed amount in time.
    I'm a student and I really want to get the Blackwidow Chroma V2 for a long time now, since I can't afford with real cash but with zSilver I can.
    I spent my saved up allowance to get a Razer Deathadder Chroma, I really want a Blackwidow Chroma V2 to go with it .
    If you are reading this, Please don't abolish the Paid to Play.

    Bad feedback???? I don't think so. I think that razer is just loosing 2 much money on this? What do you guys think, they shoudve just get prices on items bigger or reduce earning zsilver while playing games..... that's my opinion, if you got yours pls reply.

    I wish they kept it because after it suspends it will be much harder to get things for free I think they gave to much for free XD

    Because they are hypocrites and Pessimists XD

    Its small right so to get a orbweaver you need to do it millions of times

    without the P2P program players like us will take us many purchases and achievements to get what we need For ex: a blackwidow chroma with 235k points will be unachievable for mnay players and will take many zgold purchases to get it

    So at the beginning, my zSilver will be expired in Dec 2018. What if this program not gonna re-open in November 2018, which is 8 months after the program closed and no zSilver earning. Will it +8 months for my zSilver expiration date? Or it still be expired in Dec 2018?

    i think most of the complaints were about prices being raised without prior notice. they weren't "this program sucks you should shut it down". you guys are completely overreacting to a handful of anonymous online complaints

    are you guys still going to update the catalog? i've been collecting points since the beginning and i was hoping to buy some other razer gear (regular death stalker, regular black widow, etc)

    Man I literally have the worst luck....first I missed the deathadder by like 1.8k points before the adjustments. And now I'll be short like 900 points before I can get the Basilisks. But well I hope they bring it back, have always wanted some Razer peripherals( a poor uni student here).

    most are positive comments in the main thread

    then there are those that created separate threads to complain about the price hike and shipping fees etc

    and there are the supposedly death threats to razer which i have not seen. probably got deleted

    I really hope that they make another P2P program that can't be abused as easily. They could increase prices, decrease earning, etc. But this has its own issues, mainly causing fan uproar (which is allegedly the reason that P2P is being suspended in the first place). Perhaps they could give out zSilver for purchasing Razer products rather than just games. Unfortunately, I can't think of any way to monitor whether or not someone is actually playing that won't cause heaps of controversy due to privacy concerns, although I'm sure those clever minds at Razer can whip something up. Other than that, I'm not entirely sure what Razer might do.

    I don't get the negative feedback with the P2P system of razer because of this program I was able to play and try alot of my games on my steam, bnet, origin and uplay library.

    I think P2P is a great idea, but i can see why many people complain: cost. Unless you game for many hours a day, something not possible for all people, your zSilver expires before you can build up enough to spend it on something meaningful. If zSilver didn't expire, this wouldn't be a problem.

    You do not have to use up your zSilver by March 1st, redemption of rewards will continue as normal. Keep a look out for new types of rewards and different ways to earn zSilver as we revise and rework the Paid to Play program.

    From the FAQ:
    There is no change to the way Razer zSilver can be redeemed for rewards. Freshly earned Razer zSilver will continue to be totalled at the end of each calendar month, and subjected to a 12-month expiration period. Whenever you redeem a reward, zSilver with the earliest expiration date will be deducted from your wallet first.


    That's the goal here! We're open to feedback on this so be sure to send it our way in this thread!

    I'd like to know if they plan on extending the expiration date of our silver or removing it the expiration all together. I hope they come back with something soon. Thanks for the awesome program and i just hope that something comes in it's place because you've made so many gamers happy and would hate to see something ruined because of a few bad apples.
