    Razer should cancel the entire program, give everyone something real to cry about.

    ok so, from this change i believe it's one way to discover which kind of gamer you are... gamer who really love playing games and also love the community inside or gamer who love games but feel lacked of something because there is no extra benefit behind it or someone who looking free stuff trough playing games.....

    i read a lot of complain in here about doesn't get the zsilver.... it's a free stuff man, cmon.... in the beginning the idea is to give people who loves playing games a bonus while they playing games..... i highlight the word.... and i can see clearly a lot people in here looks like only targeting the bonus and not the love of playing games....

    if you are really enjoy or love games, then it shouldn't be a problem whether you got zsilver or not.... you keep playing the games before razer gives you this zsilver... so why complain now...

    that's what i think

    A guy randomly comes to your house and gives you $1 every day for the last 8 months for no reason at all, just cuz he's nice.

    Then he starts bringing you between $.05-$1 a day and you start hating him. You're not thankful for what's he done and you deserve that $1 now.

    I'll be surprised if Razer keeps the Paid to Play part of the zVault after all the crap they constantly put up with. Hopefully they'll leave the zGold paying part of it as they probably feel like ending the whole thing. Razer is much more patient with people than me.:smile_:

    naahh... it's more like they laughing behind watching the complain... they don't really care actually, cause they know these people ain't true gamers. True gamers will just enjoy anything razer threw at them....

    Please just add in more games to be supported and not rotate games. It was better before than it is now. This feels like a step back

    I just hope Dota 2 stays on the list FOREVER because I've been getting points just from this game, but since now there's PUBG.... I'm in a dilemma... Haha

    I do not play many games. Mainly dota 2 and cs-go. Playing too many different games requires me to download and it takes ages. lol The rotation of games is good but bad at the same time.

    I certainly prefer the old program but I understand why the change was made and I'm fine with it. People that complain need to understand that this is a BONUS, not a job payment. Play whatever you want, and if you happen to play these specific games then you get a BONUS.

    WHooo! PUBG and SC2, but rotating games, although it sounds nice, is also kind of a bummer when your game finally comes and you can't play that month.
    I have mixed feelings.

    Tbh this voting system will only ever favor games that are more popular. Games with lower populations will never be in rotation. Why not blend the old system with the new and have a standard set of games that doesn't change that is composed of the most popular games and then have a small rotation of other games that are voted in every month.

    I'm kinda sad about this change.
    I kinda only play League, the rest I don't have or play, for personal reasons...

    I have a feeling this might not have that "greatness" you guys hoped for...

    Well, I guess we can't really complain according that Razer is still giving us "Money" to play.. but indeed this new update is far worst than before. Please Razer let's just admit that the update is because zSilver was about to cost you far more money than you expected, This all "update is made to gather the whole community around certain titles for a month and allowing you to discover new ones" thing is a joke, It is just because it will cost you less money..
    I used to earn ZSilver while playing mainly Overwatch and Diablo 3, and guess what, none of them are available in august or in the poll for september.
    Your poll by the way is a joke too. The same 2 games will win the poll every month ?
    We still should be thankfull to Razer for giving us the opportunity to earn something while gaming, but the opportunity is now much more tiny.. at least for me it means no zSilver for august and september..

    All this statement is mostly right. However I found some misunderstanding.

    Let's say that we play because it's fun and we keep on gaming because we love it. In this case we might not play games that are picked for month, which means we are not earning silvers which is fine since it's our choice to play for fun and not for income. In my opinion statement that "Paid to Play is made to allow all gamers to get an extra out of their playtime" isnt true anymore since its not anymore for ALL gamers.

    It creates small conflict in which Razer wants to award ALL players for having fun, but at the same time awards only those who play games picked for month, or in worst case for those who really want silvers, forces them (i know its forced by those players and not Razer) to give up all fun they had, and play games they do not like.

    I hope noone will get me wrong, I understand all Paid to Play system is just good will of Razer that gives stuff for players for free, which is awesome. My point is that some moves are against assumptions stated in this post.

    Thats why I think Razer should not go back to old system, but also not keep new one. In my opinion system should be less rewarding for all games, but have few games picked by Razer which will have same rewards as it is now. Cutting total possible award for all games would be enough. For example total of 300silver per day with games not promoted for month and additional 600silver if you play promoted games. That would let ALL players still get something from playing for fun, while still allowing for promotion of new games.

    Sorry for making this reply so long, and I hope it wont be taken as next hate/cry reply, but more as free thoughts about actual problem.

    Thanks for everyone that somehow agree with me and remember to play for fun!

    Have a nice day!
