    Of course they want the old system back. It was way easier! lol

    Discover cash back rewards you have to spend at least $1000.00 dollars to get back $3 or $4 dollars. I'm talking about spending real money, not getting "paid" to play video games. What do you think the credit card company would do if I told them I want them to increase my rewards? They'd laugh in my face, that's what they would do. lol

    I don't know if its because Razer has a younger fan base or what? But wait until you have to deal with mortgages and credit card bills and car payments. That's going to pop the bubble of the fantasy world they're living in.

    Yeah and the Discover cash back is crap and that's why people choose other credit cards, not sure why you keep bringing this up. Besides, last I checked Razer is not a credit company.

    Not sure what this has to do with Razer's loyalty program...

    I keep bringing it up, because it seems like people expected the grab bag party at razer to last forever. lol

    If I was razer, I would be saying "Get your hands outta my pockets!" lol

    Because Razer has been generous above and beyond what they had to do, And people are still ragging on them.

    When does it become enough to feed an insatiable greed?

    I haven't read the list, so I should check if Neverwinter is still there!

    As it seems Neverwinter won't be on the list next month either, I guess I'll uninstall Razer too cause I don't see
    it on the "to vote" list for September and I don't have time to wait months till it is and somehow I don't buy
    " Neverwinter is assured to be back on Paid to Play as 5 new games roll every month" nor won't I buy any of
    those expensive pay to play games!

    First off, you seem to have mistaken me for someone of the wrong age group, you should never assume... and if you fall for Discover, that's your mistake. You should have read the fine print!
    Second, Razer started the "grab bag" as you call it, if they go and turn it inside out it's sure to upset ppl. Certainly when it's less than the original setup.
    Third... Arc has a simple enough 'reward' system that isn't a popularity contest, limited to 5 games of someone else's choosing. It's based on all the games on Arc and rewards are usable in game.

    You know what, your totally right.

    Can you send me a link to Corsair and Logitechs paid to play program please?

    I'll be looking for it. Thanks! :wink_:

    This sucks a bit, one month without zSilver, I already bought the firefly and i wanned to collect for the Blackwidow.. and that takes a lot of time, but now - even more.

    Dude, not everyone was gaming the system. That 900 a day was peanuts compared to the zSilver you got for spending zGold at Indiegala or GamerGate. When people buy and spend zGold it's good for Razer. I think you are overestimating the amount of people that 'game the system' and the impact that has.

    Well, you know the old saying, it only takes a few bad apples to ruin it for the rest of us. It was obviously enough to force Razer to take action.

    I do like how you say that, "900 a day was peanuts". lol That looks like a BONANZA to me! RLMAO!

    It makes me realize how good you guys had it for so long.

    Maybe that's why I don't have any sympathy for anyone that's complaining.

    Don't misinterpret me.
    I was comparing it to the 15.000 you could get for spending great amounts of money for zGold. Not how it was 'peanuts' for me. On most days I got 200-300 zSilver for playing a few hours and 40 for logging in every day at Cortex. I boosted my zSilver by buying Wolvenstein 2, Southpark and a few other games with zGold. That's hardly gaming the system.

    For every one of you that was playing by the rules, I bet there had to be what? 4 or 5 who were being a hassa (A pig. A guy who wants more then what he needs and who dosen't "fly straight" anymore.)

    Grabbing with both hands like there was no tomorrow.

    And where did you get this information that it was due to cheaters that Razer decided to change this program? Where did you get the information that most of us are cheating? Your whole argument is based on assumptions.

    Well, you read stuff on the forums, you see things. I didn't even know what AFKing was until read it on here.

    And while I'm sure it was a combination of things that lead razer to change the program, you can't tell me that cheating didn't factor into it.

    Very bad decision to change it. If you don't play many games, like me (I only play one game), you maybe only have one month in a long time to earn zsilvers with. I play STO, not a very popular game, so maybe that one is one once in a year. Think I will uninstall cortex than. It takes too long to earn a decent amount with only the daily reward.

    I like this new system but 5 games are not at all enough... There is a really small chance to play those selected games. You should put at least 12 in the rotation....:disappointed_relieved:
