    For those of us playing less popular games or older games, this system destroys our zsilver income. The less popular games that were previously supported will not be voted into the 5 games that are chosen every month. Not to mention the fact that in order to earn zsilver users must clutter their computers with new games every month and perhaps even buy new games.

    People complaining as if Cortex was a paid app or something... Play the games if you want, otherwise vote for your favorites, chill out.

    It sucks that 3 games are pay to OWN

    Thankfully Dota 2 and Starcraft are free to DL
    Dota even has a 2x bonus.

    Its almost like Razer wants us to BUY and Play Different games.

    this is the shittiest way to do this.... literally i have 2 games that were even on the list of allowed games for daily points i could play and only one of them i even play for more than an hour and that was overwatch. literally close to the one thing i want to earn and you guys just made it 100x harder on me and probably about 1000 other people. I literally just played for like 7 hours thinking i was getting points till i closed the the notification didn't come up and found that i have to play dota or star craft if i even want to get points for this month because either i cant get a game or the games on the list are stupid. also ya this might just sound like a rant or something but thats just kinda infuriating to find out about 8k away from my prize.

    How could you take out League of Legends... That's the only game the computer I got now can run....

    I feel like this is going to make a lot of people mad. This was not announced anywhere else, and because of the voting, it means the same ones are almost always going to be up. I don't want to download games I don't want to play, why the heck would I download DOTA if it's just gonna sit there unused, taking up space on my harddrive, MAYBE on while I AFK.

    People have the games they like, so what? Don't punish the ones who only like to play one game, because they're not going to go and suddenly try these games, they're gonna AFK with them in, if they even get them at all.

    Finally Razer shows the ultimate aim. From Paid to Play become Buy to Play.

    I feel like "most" of the anger was with the lack of communication of the change.
    Many people are playing other game not knowing they aren't earning anything.

    It would have been nice to receive a heads-up.
    Razer could choose to freeze all paid to play until further notice.

    I count my blessings
    Yes the system was better. But the system could be worse!

    It would be cool to earn zsilvers while playing Rust. :D

    i think it's not the communication problem, it is a free stuff from razer and they as the one who give us the free stuff can do anything with the term and condition even how to communicate that term.... it's just us that need to understand how the things work and accept it whether we can follow it or not...

    all of us just to focus on zsilver earning and we forget who we are really.... we are just a gamer who enjoy playing games and be grateful while we doing it we get the free stuff....

    last advice an i'm out, just follow what razer give us whether we can do it or not, stop complaining about the system cause it's not your problem... give build criticism so that the system can be even better and not a complain...

    I'm not very happy with this idea. I do appreciate why it was done but I feel that 5 games isn't enough. There should be a few games that are always available to gain zSilver with like League of Legends, Starcraft, CSGO, Dota and Overwatch, rather than there just being 5 games, most of which I need to pay for and can't run on my pc. The main reason I used this was because they chose a lot of games that didn't require a £1500 PC and most of the games were free. Will you still be rotating items that we can get? If you are going to be changing the items a lot, I feel it will be unfair for people who will gain zSilver very slowly from now on.
    Edit: I will still keep using the system and I have paid for razer products in the past like my headset and my mouse. I'll see how this goes but I wanted to give my feedback.

    Hi Guys,

    that means now I cant get rewarded anymore cause I am only playing CS GO ?
    Whats about people which are focusing only one game but have all that Razer Gear at home for Gaming?
    At then end everybody can create a Razer ID and earn Rewards - that makes sense.
    But what is with a game list, maybe the most played games all over the world, which are always available for zsilver?

    Regards from Germany

    I personally liked the old system better. It was more likely to allow players to benefit from playing the games they prefer to play than to feel 'pressured' to play games they might not normally play just so they can earn some extra zSilver.
    This to me just feels like a way of cutting down on the amount of zSilver that is given out so that there are fewer redeemed coupons for razer gear. Which on a business view....I completely understand....but on a consumer/player side...it kinda sucks.

    I must say that I'm kind of disappointed with the new system. This was the month I earned that mug, now its back out there somewhere in the future if at all.

    Counter strike:global offensive is the only game i own and play, I have played on that for 700 hours now this update came and now I cant get zSilver because of this update which means you can only earn through 5 different games each month which includes vote, why is there no csgo on the vote? It's the 3rd most played game on steam... so it definitely should be on the vote list! Not happy with the update all games should earn you zSilver.

    This new system sucks as it is now. With the Summer Games coming up, Overwatch would have been one of the games that should've been on the list. The new system would have been great if it was added on top of the old system instead of replacing it. So you have the core games like Overwatch, WoW, LoL, World of Tanks, Diablo 3 and a monthly selection of other games like Starcraft 2 PUBG and DOTA 2. That would have been awesome.
