    I dont know who made this decision overall but 5 games isnt enough to keep everyone pleased and i highly believe this is a mistake on razer's part games like League of Legends, Hearthstone, Dota2. CSGO, starcraft 2 should definitely be on the permanent list and maybe World of Warcraft to balance all the genres these games have huge fanbase and if u throw them away based on "voting" the community will not be pleased for sure not to mention u closed the razer arena zsilver betting few months ago from there everything went worse and now this...making us to choose...I thought u were shutting down arena to make cortex better and not to divide gaming communities making them fight over a pick of 5 games sorry but thats the truth
  2. You should! We've started already with new games such as Playerunknown's Battlegrounds which was a big request from you guys. Thanks to the flexibility of the monthly rotation system, it's easier for us to add new trendy games quickly.

    Set yourself to score a Winner Winner Chicken Dinner in solo or group up with a friend - time will fly and before you know it, you'll have reached your zSilver goal ;)

    Nobody forces you to play games that you don't like. Paid to Play is not a mandatory program, there are many other ways to score zSilver. You can unlock achievements on Razer Insider or get your games using zGold.

    Have fun on Starcraft this month and don't forget to cast your vote for Heroes of the Storm! Bring in your teammates to vote too, it could tilt the results in your favor :)

    CS:GO won't be part of the Paid to Play games this month. We'll bring it back in the coming months for sure. Meanwhile, you can quench your thirst for zSilver by playing PUBG, Starcraft 2, DOTA 2, GTA V or Tekken 7. Also, don't forget to vote for the games you'd like to see featured next month.

    Glad to see this update allows Razer fans to discover and get together on new games! GL HF this weekend :)

    People are voting for lightweight games so they can let it run on standby to get zSilver without blowing up the room temperature XD XD XD

    So after i read all of this posts, i have the same questions as many others. Why isnt Overwatch on the voting poll, a lot of people play it and its a great game for zSilvers. And the 5 games monthly chose, do they give 1800 zSilver or the rate is increased by 6 per minute?

    This seems like a good starting point, however I believe that this could be built upon. Already to improve, I think 5 games a month is too small of a selection, considering there are even more than 5 genres of games. Perhaps 10?
    And while voting gives some semblance of control by us, the fact that the list is so small feels very restrictive.
    I think a submission based vote would work wonders, because you would see a true representation of what the gamers want. And that's what this is all about, right? For gamers, by gamers?

    The rate is increased only for DOTA 2 for the weekend starting on friday. So only dota 2 will have 6 zSilver a minute for the weekend days but the max zSilver per day will still be 900 from the paid to play program. The 5 games are the only ones supported for this month so no other game will give zSilver during August.

    Yeah this was a way to anger a lot of people,
    1) As others have said 5 games just seems like too little of an option.
    2) If you wanted to get people to try different games, give double/triple silver to not very popular games at different times
    3) Again if the goal was to get people to try different games, giving them the option to vote is counter-intuitive because the popular game everyone plays is obviously going to be voted on.
    4) To limit our option of earning and not increase the 900 limit and or rate of earn is pretty rough (yes there is double earning weekends but still not enough)
    5) I know it seems bad to be complaining about free stuff but to get used to the old system and be 100% happy with it just for it to be ripped away and replaced for this is kind of a slap in the face

    I do believe its to break away from "just the most common games played today". Its nice to see "change". Although I'm not up to speed on the process of silver/gold and games associated with it. I play Heroes of the storm and Starcraft 2, thats it. I'll eventually play all these other titles but in the mean time, I'm happy with the game I choose. If razer insider chooses these titles that I play, then I'll be very greatful for the opportunity and continue playing like I have been. You guys should welcome the "change". You might even find a title that you might end up liking because the "change" made you select it. At that point thank Razer for a new game and for the Zsilver.

    Well thanks for that, but if we look this realistically most of the people that play games dont have DANK PC for 2000$ to run games like GTA5 or TEKKEN 7 and comparing the DOTA community to the LOL community is like comparing milk and cheese the numbers are too far apart League of Legends its a MUST Starcraft is a MUST because its been the building block of ESPORTS especially in Korea and it is not showing any signs of dying soon. Razer must not disregard leading gaming titles to BRING UP GTA5 and the recently released TEKKEN 7 thats maybe played consistently only in america and parts of asia on a competitive level I dont see a logic in this. Especially when games like Overwatch and CSGO are getting bigger and bigger with everyday...Paladins is Ok since is a free game and people who cant afford overwatch can go and smash paladins...for free The IDEA IS GOOD but 5 games is NOTHING for a MONTH...the person who took that decision to add 5 games should be fired immediately

    Sounds good to me. If you're playing the same game as 8 months ago when zVault came out, mix it up some. There's lots of other games out there too.

    Does everyone remember a year ago when you just gamed for fun? Some people now think of this like a job. It's funny to see people complaining that now they "have to play" certain games. Play whatever you want to, if you get zSilver that's great, if you don't oh well. People are so entitled, just enjoy it and be thankful while it lasted.

    I've always thought the zVault was too good to be true with all the free money and free stuff and it's still a crazy great deal that no other company is even attempting to match. It's a fun and unique rewards program and has saved me a lot, so thank you Razer.:big_grin_:

    I voted for Battlefield 1 since it's coming to Origin Access along with newly added Titanfall 2. AAA games less than a year old for $2.50 a month, yes please.

    ^ Thank you for summing that up! Just simple appreciation for the fact they do what they do for our enjoyment and then some.

    Decent idea, horribly realized.
    Everybody with half a brain understands that this is about marketing other games which don't do so well.

    Next time you going to change something based on "poll", make sure people actually know about it. I bet 99% of the community wasn't aware, otherwise there would be two hundred-percenters a.k.a Overwatch and LoL.

    Either way still grateful, just keep going!

    i feel that this is a great initiative as it allows more participation from the community

    it allows the gamers of different communities to come together

    edit: oh, just realized that it is a new refresh every month, i would rather we have a basic staple of games and on top of that having 5 different games per month. that would actually be awesome
