    Hi!

    To this day, namely, before the upgrade, I could get a zsilver with two and more games, but now I give not the full amount due to my absence.

    The games have changed recently, and I think last weekend was a double weekend, also Cortex has been having some problems the last few days. So I'd say just wait and make sure you're playing a supported game and whether it's supposed to be giving you 1 or 3 zSilver per minute.

    EDIT: Oops, didn't realize you were cheating and now mad that you can't, I'm glad Razer fixed it!!:laughing:

    I mean... the system was originally intended to reward you while you were playing... not afk or running multiple games. Just enjoy playing and enjoy the system as it was intended...

    ... although, saying that, I can hear Min saying how gamers always seek the "unfair advantage" from some past interview in my head... :oops:

    It is Paid to Play
    Not Paid to Run Game

    I am sometimes really surprised how far man's stupidity can go... You have the nerves to COMPLAIN on a Razer forum that you are unable to cheat anymore because of changes introduced in a latest patch?

    If "Paid to Play" is ever shut down it will be because of greedy people that are trying to grab as much as they can, and they would cheat to get it...

    Worst part is that most of them are probably able to afford all the hardware they will get by cheating, eventually leading to some kid out there not being able to earn a keyboard or a mouse (which he/she probably wouldn't be able to afford otherwise) because he is doing it fair and square, playing 2-3 hours a day, as much as his parents allow it...

    Children should not be involved in this stuff as i believe there's a rule that you need to be 18+ to participate in the redeems. So for now let's say the parents will get them Razer gear if that's really what they want, as they can comfort their children with almost anything these days. So let the parents handle them until they reach a more diplomatic state of age.

    I understand what you are trying to say and I even partially agree with that but although none of what you said is incorrect when did EULA prevented 15 y/o to create an account? :)

    On the other hand, a lot of families can afford $400-500 PC that would be able to run most of these games at low settings at least, but not a lot of them would be able to afford a $100 keyboard or a $70 mouse (unfortunately way to often not even for their kids birthday or Christmas), nor they would be able to comprehend why such items even exist other than making them feel guilty for not being able to afford them.

    Wouldn't you be glad your kid actually earned something cool for himself while playing a game, something you otherwise wouldn't be able to afford him? I wouldn't care if he broke EULA and I would sure be happy to pay $10 shipping fee to US. Yes, this could also be considered cheating but I am sure you don't want to compare this to somebody complaining about not being able to earn all 900 zSilver in an hour by starting multiple games :)

    I understand your frustration. But I wouldn't call it cheating if there was such a loophole in the system that it was possible to obtain silver from multiple games.

    And what about your statement that a lot of hard to sit at a game for 2-3 hours to obtain 900 silver. Perhaps many simply do not have time to get this silver out for work or other more important things.

    And I think it's silly to talk about people and kids not knowing what kind of a life they live.

    Thank you for understanding.

    I don't think a lot of gaming studios would agree with you, these are called exploits and would certainly get you banned in a lot of games :)

    You can't possibly blame a kid if he is unable to comprehend that his parents aren't able to afford expensive gaming peripherals... I honestly hope you and your kids will never be in such position.

    In my opinion, Paid to Play is more here to help in cases where people otherwise wouldn't be able to experience awesome gaming equipment than to make richer even richer...

    But hey, that is just me ;)

    Just because there's a loophole doesn't mean it's suddenly okay to do.

    Imagine if a game gave you a small amount of in-game currency just for playing the game, but you could open 100 clients at once, all logged into the same account, and get 100x the currency you're supposed to be able to get. That is 100% cheating and there is no way to argue against that just because it's "possible".

    For this case, just replace "in-game currency" with "virtual credits used to get real stuff for free" and it's not just "cheating", it's also "stealing".

    What interview are you speaking about? I'm curious lol.

    Also glad that Razer maintains Paid to Play instead of completely dumping it because of a few cheaters :)
