    Hi there I've recently broke the 100k Zsliver mark which is now-where near enough to afford anything now due to the fact that they've increased prices far above the value of the items themselves like the hammer head pro v2 It was 91,000 Zsliver already above the 70 doller asking price but still it's reasonable. Okay so now the price of it is in the hundreds meaning that it has far exceeded the asking price for the item, so I should just buy it this point if I wanted it which I don't. So will we see prices go down and more specifically will the basilisk come-back? and will the base sation chorma's carry over to next month? if not then will the death-adder elite comeback because i'm not paying 150k for a mouse that has branding for a game i don't even play or own. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to earn awesome razer gear.

    Maybe they will shut down paid to play all together next month so you wont have to worry about anything. I would suggest saving up more zSilver, prices will stay stable for atleast 1 month more but as for the rewards shuffle no one can anticipate which rewards will come and which will go.

    Im glad that you thank Razer for the free gear but dont think of it as paying 150k for a mouse since all the zSilver is just free currency Razer gives you. In the end your mouse will cost you only the shipping price which is different for all regions, could be as low as 10 dollars to as high as 30-40 dollars.

    "...zSilver is just free currency Razer gives you..."

    @OV3R_K1LL Don't bother, they will never understand, that's why P2P is dead.

    I don't understand why people think there's a monetary correlation between money and zSilver. There can never be anything available for zSilver that is above the "asking price", because there is no dollar value to zSilver (read the TOCs).

    In fact, the only correlation that zSilver has to anything is time. And just like real time, that value is fluid.

    If we think about the price hikes in the zVault in terms of "time spent playing", then maybe the Razer Paid to Play world would be a better place. Instead of "Razer wants me to earn more zSilver in order to get peripheral x", how about "Razer wants me to spend more time gaming in order to get peripheral x"?

    So there are no price hikes. There are more opportunities to play video games. If you want to play video games in order to obtain Razer gear, you'll do it. If you want to pay money, you'all do that. But no other company is offering you the CHANCE to get their gear by playing video games. What is there to really complain about, unless you're in a country they don't currently offer zVault?

    There was some posts a while ago that were comparing the product silvers price with the actual price of the product and was likely a good and stable correlation between the price in cash and the one with silvers. Now with the current adjustments of the prices these correlation are not correct anymore. And regarding the items in the zvault usually items are removed when there are new ones to be added, and since they don't add it monthly i'd say there's a chance to be in there for 2-3 months since they were added. And why is this rumor circulating about the fact they're likely to close the p2p program?

    @H00dy Im kind of glad that Min announced its demise, I got in early and got out early with quick redemptions and I have been happy with the system. Just not happy with how people abused it and made it into what it is right now, every other item voucher is out of stock or outright gone from the catalog. Not to mention the anti AFK system is a joke to bypass.

    @PT.Singer I guess the only monetary correlation could be the electricity used to game, but even that shouldnt be a factor if you are already gaming for your own entertainment. I think people who have the money = zSilver mentality are those who AFK so for them time and electricity are investments and the output they get is the zSilver.

    This isn’t a rumour about closing it, min said so himself that he thinks temporarily suspending it is the best idea until they rework it.
