    weekend is the only time we can spend up to 5h/day to play, why the need to double the earning rate? Why not give us double maximum earning if we can reach 10h?

    To be honest, I wish TF2, L4D/L4D2 and CS:GO were all added to the list - there's so much emphasis on syncing Steam with Razer Cortex, yet only a couple of games from that service actually let you earn zSilver?!

    This is making some players "forced" to play these 5 games to earn zsilver, especially those who dont have the 5 games on their computer. Would be better to have more than just 5 games.

    That's sorta-cold hearted dude. Wishing bad things on people who just wanted to mix things up a little for a program that rewards the gamer for playing games? I wouldn't blame razer if they just chucked the whole program so they wouldn't have to deal with all the BS.

    I don't know, go to Logitech and corsair and tell them to implement a program like razer's and see what they tell you.

    Almost everyone is playing CS: GO, this position should be mandatory on the list especially since Cortex guarantees more FPS in the game, it's some misunderstanding.

    It's a nice feature to roll around games and make players see something new. The fact that there is at least 1 free to play game is also very good , but this is only for people with decent pc's.
    My 2012 laptop barely keeps League of Legends steady at 60 fps with medium graphics. Hearthstone and LoL were the only games that i played not only because they were on cortex but because i like them and i can run them. Last time i tried Dota i got 35 fps at best on lowest settings. Seems that i will have to wait until September to add some zsilver.

    I like the changes, however it should have more games. 10 would allow a nice selection of games. Of the games for this month I only have Star Craft 2 and I played that about 5 years ago and never looked back. But with rotation, and please add more "less known" games as well, this will be better.

    So please increase the amount of games, and also have some more less popular games. Like for instance Guild Wars 2 :)

    guys i know you want to make something better but pls just go back to the old system and add 5 games with extended silver to earn or give them a multiplier like you get 2×amount of zsilver if you play these 5 games

    I like the whole system, but is there anyway that we could earn more zsilver per minute? 5 hours of gameplay for 900 szilver seems ridiculous, especially because im the type of guy that has alot on his plate per day; and I cant afford to fork over 5 hours of gameplay a day.

    So now I have a really good reason to buy & play Playerunknown's Battlegrounds now :) Saw this game on some streams & it looks really fun.

    The only reason I downloaded Razer Cortex to begin with was to earn zSilver while playing WoW, which I was doing daily anyway. Now that WoW is removed from the list out of nowhere (Which I only noticed after I clocked out for the day) I no longer have a reason to keep it installed. It's a shame and I hope you revise this system a bit. Even with the poll, it's clear that WoW isn't getting any love next month, after all.

    Can someone who has a definite answer clarify what the Double zSilver for DOTA 2 means...

    Is it 1800 / day, or is it just 150 minutes to get the total 900?

    Edit: also, I have none of the games on the voting list. Lol.

    I like the sh** storm of "true players" about changing paid-to-play system. Really guys, you don't have to use it. I use it for fun, I like to play games, and it's a great opportunity to have fun & earn some great stuff at the same time.

    And it's 900 zSilvers per day. On this weekend (from friday) there is 2x zSilver bonus when you play DOTA2 - so if you want to earn 900 zSilvers you have to play 2,5 hours instead of 5.

    I personally think this new system is bad to be honest. I prefer it if Razer would add them in to the old games so that way we can have more available games to play for earning zsilver. Here are my reasons for why this new system is bad.
    Reason 1) People do not have these games on their game libraries.
    Sure the solution is to buy the game, but not everyone have money like that they can spend.

    Reason 2) Game genres
    Sure Dota 2 can be used to get zsilver, but not everyone is a MOBA gamer. I don't play MOBA games as much. It's just boring to me. Everyone got different tastes

    Reason 3) Decent PC?
    Crossfire is a good game where we can earn zsilver without requiring a really expensive computer to play. Not everyone got a good PC that wants to earn zsilver for razer products.

    I do hope that Razer can bring the old system back and just add on to more supported games.

    Do you have a source other than this thread?

    I mean, it's very vague here: "we’re doubling your zSilver earning rate when you play DOTA 2."

    It says earning rate - which obviously means earning silver faster but could also mean that we can earn more than the normal amount.

    The reason I'm curious is because I want to know if I have to clock in full 300 minutes in DOTA 2 (which I don't even play normally) before playing other games while it's active, to not lose the rewards.

    E.g. play other games for 150 minutes, earng 450 silver, play DOTA 2 for 150 minutes, earn 900 silver. Total of 1350 silver only.
