    Would be great if people who own razer gear get x2 silver per min.

    There is a flaw in making razer merc. owners getting 2x points, there are still people that own razer wants to sell razer items on ebay. The flaw is not how people getting points the flaw was that people without any activity in game getting points. (opening up the game and being afk for 5 hours) if they fix this I believe only real gamers will get Zsilver.

    Well TBH, complaints about someone giving something for well... free (gaming is free, nobody tells you to do it) is a douchebag'y move. If not paid-to-play they'd just play without getting anything, and right now they can have cool stuff for free... Complaints are just strange for me, as thanks to this feature I've just started to play SC2 and I love it. You won't satisfy everyone so, I guess the best idea is to leave everything as it is.

  6. It may make it TOO restricted, but I think an application/signup would be a good way to keep just true Razer fans.

    Thats why it was a good thing that they had that 15min AFK atleast, they will work it out somehow in some way to make the program for real gamers better and not having those miners and ebay sellers for a quick pocket money

    Hi there!

    Here is my first post, I claimed my Razer Lancehead TE, few months ago. I'm Razer user since the old Deathadder, like 6 years ago, since that i'm using always Razer mices. I think people is just too greedy i don't know, always have to think the "trick" to win money, and f*** others who are real fans of Razer.

    This idea sounds awesome to be honest, i read few other things about x1 no razer owner, x2 razer owner, but i think it's just better to limit it to Razer owners, cause always will exist greedy people who just want to sell things, but if atleast you win 1 sell for that, it's "worth" for you while not shuting down Paid to Play to the real fans.

    Hope i explain my self properly.

    Thanks for everything anyway, and for the best mice in the market o/

    I love the idea but i do not know just how realistic it is. I have been a loyal razer customer since my early days of PC gaming, and if this gets implemented, i would be honestly very happy. On the other hand what do you mean exactly, will there be specifics on what it means to be a "loyal customer"? or can anyone who gets a naga for 40 bucks make it back in a month by leaving Fortnite running all the time?

    I am a new user to this program. I was disappointed to see the program being stopped, as I have not earned enough zsilver to purchase just yet. I like the idea of being rewarded for using razercortex, I also like the features of this program.

    After 3 months talking with Razer Support with hope to get Paid to Play working it would not be good idea to make it only for owners of Razer gear. No matter what you change or do there is most likely some guys who just want to quick bucks from eBay. If you have a dream to earn first piece of Razer hardware via gaming then don't kill that dream for most of us.

    One might say that stop complaining and go buy ur first piece. I would, but most of my gaming gear is won from local Lan tournaments and are still working. Always nice to earn your gear with hard gaming as the point is to game!

    Maybe instead of the whole gear, they can only redeem vouchers, and with that they can get themselves a Razer device with a lower price, then they can eventually redeem gears.

    Hi Min,

    I am unaware if it has been mentioned as I have not seen anything in the forums but could you give me an idea of what the complaints were regarding? This may be able to help the community provide you some extra ideas regarding the subject.

    The reason I am asking is I do have some ideas but would love to actually give you the one which would be most relevant.

    Hope to hear back and hope to help :)

    Many Thanks

    I am 100% FOR this idea

    There needs to be a way to weed out the free loaders and fake accounts. Forcing people to register an existing device would be 1 effective way of enforcing

    Hi Mltan & Min

    I am a new Razer Fan and have loved the "paid to play" for Zsilvers ! I am one of those people that don't have much money to buy lost of stuff ! I only got my first Razer products on the black Friday sales as they had a massive sale ! I would not have been able to afford it any other way ! When I found out about your rewards paid to play, I was glad that I found a company that cares about the people, and thought I could possibly get some new products in the future to replace my old ones when they stop working !

    Have you thought about tyring to limit the number of redeemable rewards? So that perhaps only a keyboard every 3 years and so on for other devices/rewards. That's why I am giving you this idea, as the products that we own have serial numbers embedded in the hardware that the cortex software pick up make it linked with you Razer Acc. so that way you can only get one keyboard every 3 years as the life span of a keyboard for an extreme gamer would roughly need a new one and a mouse every 2 years as they get hammered in battles.

    Please keep the "paid to play" for the little people like me who can't pay my way through a game, and for the other Razer fans like me. :smile_:

    I actually kind of mentioned this idea to them as well :) to explain every person who uses this program needs to have a razer account. Once a reward is purchased through zsilver the serial number which is attached should be linked directly to the razer account it is purchased with. If it is sold on then it will not work... So if someone does sell an item on and razer get a complaint they can ask for the serial number (or a number of some sort if they create something) and they will see that the person using it isn't on that razer ID and know its been sold on. This will cover razer if it is mentioned in the paid to play reward system and the customer will then have to make a complaint to the seller who sold them the item.
    Hopefully Min can shed some light on the subject and see if he thinks the ideas are worthwhile, but great thinking mate :)

    I like the idea of controlling who can earn Zsilver P2P by being allready Razer's stuff owner or active member on Insider (easy for me to say this because I do both^^).

    Would be quite hard for those who expect to redeem their first product via Zsilver but it would greatly limit the abuses.

    Why not just have a loyalty program? You could turn this program into a loyalty program?
    Anyway, I like it. You have made me try a few new games that ended up on the list that I hadn't heard of before. One of them I play all the time now!

    Cash and zsilver pay method would be awesome!

    I completely agree with the suggestions as well. The idea of allowing users who don't have Razer gear a way to grind toward owning Razer gear, is a generous idea. Unfortunately, there are some people who want this Razer gear for free just to sell them on eBay. If you limit zSilver for poeple who already have a Razer gear may help to reduce complaints. I hope you can find a satisfactory solution for the Paid to Play program.
