    The new season with the Necromancer on Diablo 3 just started, and you decided to take it off? That kinda sucks.....

    Agree totally, I woulda given you a like, but I already reach my daily limit of 5. I'll do it when it re-sets. People really are a disgrace. The human species as a whole really are a selfish lot. I didn't want to believe it, but this thread has confirmed it.

    Not going to lie this was a big surprise to me today. Cortex could use some sort of news tab where they inform players about these changes by the way.

    Nonetheless, I also stand with the old system. Now I understand where you're coming from with these changes, but was it really necessary to limit the programme to five games per month?

    It was, or would have been a lot better, if you started adding new games to the already existing pool of games effected by the programme and promote a single one of them with a double amount of zSilver - like DOTA2 in this case.

    Not to mention that few of those titles that have been selected for this month can be easily abused.

    Hey there, Razer. Just bumped in here after I realised I wasn't earning any zSilver today. I'm kinda bummed since I don't like and/or own any of the featured games this August. However, I understand your decision to promote diversity among users, since this is just a reward program after all and nobody is forced to participate in the first place.
    That being said, I think it would be a good idea to make some of the most popular games permanent throughout the months. Overwatch and Dota 2 would be good candidates in my opinión.
    Hope you consider this suggestion and keep up the good work with your great hardware!

    Hm, I thought it was a bug that my razer cortex doesn't calculate me any silver. I am a new user so maybe I should be more responsible for the player's choice.:)

    Big step backwards, guys. Go back to the old system. Maybe let people vote on which game(s) will give x2 zSilver, but don't disable zSilver for games that many people play constantly such as currently popular eSports and such.
    This is a big mistake and a great way to ruin a great loyalty program.

    Also, for the love of god, zGold on Steam and in Overwatch loot boxes.

    I think the old system was better, the games were more popular with many people, the new system is good when it comes to getting people to play old games or jump into hot games on the rise, but i dont think it hurts to keep the really popular ones on the list at all time. I think the old system and new system could easily be incorporated together. Games such as Dota 2, LOL, Heroes of the Storm, Battleground, Diablo 3, Overwatch etc... should remain on the list all the time, then people get to vote for 1 or 2 other games. Games that get rotate in and out each month should get 2x earning rate of zSilver to encourage people to play it. Non rotating games should earn silver at normal rate, since they are popular people will most likely play them all the time anyways. Just my opinion.

    Just found out about this. Have been playing STO all this time and all of a sudden, nothing. Been making bank on that game since it's the one that I play the most. Still have SC2 and Hearthstone. Bring back STO!

    wow... what a lame update - forcing people to play other games only to earn some points

    Old system was way better, not only were there a variety of different games you weren't forced to play a free to play game you don't even like. My suggestion is to leave the most popular games always available and change out the ones that don't get so much attention. I don't approve.:frown_:

    I was very sad with this new update, I do not play any of these games, unfortunately, I will be 1 month without silver. ;( ;(

    Sadly time to deinstall Cortex. Razer keeps removing usefull features like savegame manager or now (pretty much) the reward system. I play 3 games max and have no interest in playing anything else.

    The double reward system on weekends is very strange. So you get double for every minute but max 900 per day.
    So it's like "Hey you don't have to play that much to get your reward" instead of "get more zsilver for playing"

    Pretty sure the community did NOT give you that feedback given that we're all pretty much unanimously against this idea. So don't push it onto us like this is what we wanted from you. Razer decided to do this on their/your own against our better judgement/wishes.

    People are so bad man. It's like what they're saying is, "WHAT? You're not supporting my game exclusively from now on? I don't care if it was supported from the start and I had a boatload of time to earn silver, I don't care about the other gamers who may not play my game and give them a chance to earn some silver, It's all about ME! ME! ME! ME! I am entitled razer, you OWE me all the free stuff I can grub, HOW DARE YOU! I'll show you razer, I'm uninstalling everything and I'm also taking my ball home so one else can play! That'll teach ya!"

    Why CS:GO and OVERWATCH have been removed from zSilver? As I noticed because I didn't earn no zSilver at all today. Played over 5hours CS:GO and it still says 0 zSilver and play over 300minutes! :angry:
    These have been the only 2 games that I have that were zSilver supported :slightly_sad: Totally uncool guys, uncool move
