    I think that would be great to avoid selfish people.

    should check the ip address of the player to avoid cheating

    You can spoof your IP address very easily. You could suggest limiting 1 account to 1 individual MAC address but then people will use multiple computers with multiple accounts to farm zSilver. Imo no matter how clever the system gets its bound to get bypassed by people sooner or later.

    but razer did not take money from sponsoring games since you could earn points playing type fortnite, gta, pubg, hots, dota 2, etc etc? at the end of these games, in the period in which they earned 3 or 6 points they certainly received some increase and surely they would have had new players. Possible that razer does not take any compensation in exchange for this?

    In the end a system to control who actually uses razer products is there but this does not mean that the same owners of razer products do not go then to sell the same products on ebay. For now then they have added a system, mogul arena, which allows you to earn zsilver but only works in asia, have added a store similar to steam to buy games and allows you to earn zsilver, however you have to spend money to earn you do not know how many zsilver. I hope they find a system. For now I am keeping the 240k that I have and I am waiting for some interesting product, I would like a new edition of the TE mamba to come out because that hyperflux version has been released

    The idea for that could be you know how we register stuff to our Razer accounts? You could demand that (not just plugged in, but registered with your Synapse account too). As well as having it plugged in. Now, those with multiple peripherals could cheat the system, but base it off the MAC address of the router sending out to the internet (not the MAC address of the PC in use, though maybe track that as well to stop them sending via multiple networks with the same machine if that's possible?). Now they have to use multiple internet connections to stand a chance, as well as owning multiple peripherals. There will always be cheaters, but there are things you can do to put off most people looking into it. With this, I have 5 peripherals, but only 2 sources of internet available at any one time (our home internet, and the tethering on my phone). They'd have to purchase multiple internet packages and pay for multiple internet packages. Would it then be worth the extra costs for the free stuff then?

    Plus I'd have to register a new Razer ID plus buy a new item as all mine are registered to this account. They are also demanding mobile phone OTP use to redeem rewards. Maybe force that to engage in P2P as well and stall those using the same mobile phone number to only the gains of one machine? So they'd have to have multiple SIM cards for multiple numbers, etc. And on CDMA networks, you'd need to own multiple phones and I believe pay for multiple service lines too (though my knowledge on CDMA is more limited, I live in a GSM only country, but I do know that CDMA generally doesn't use SIM cards and instead stuffs all the information on the phone itself that GSM stores on a SIM).

    The most dedicated cheaters will do it, but this makes it a very unattractive proposition for almost everyone wanting to game the system. For those who just want to farm zSilver the intended way, well you'll already have all the stuff you need (except maybe the mobile phone, but that'd be an edge case), so just make sure Razer has all the info you need, and happy farming.

    This is a great idea most of the Razer community liked P2P and want it back. And it's look like a great idea. Mogula Arena is to hard to win Zsilvers and most of us have thousands zsilvers which look like useless today.
    Hope we will have P2P back to win more zsilvers.

    Yeah if deterring people from cheating is the argument then yes this system will work. Even the simple methods like IP limiting or letting people who own peripherals only farm zSilver can work too but the idea isnt to deter people, its to completely eradicate cheating all together. Razer wont introduce a new system without it being 100% bulletproof to not have a flaw that would allow cheating. P2P got anti cheating measures over the months it went along but this time they should atleast brainstorm a system that isnt susceptible to most common forms of cheating.

    I agree with most of the comments in this thread; however, because I am still in school my parents don't fund my 'gaming' interests. I have to pay for all of my peripheral's and the Razer gear is just too expensive for me at the moment. I fall into none of the fanboy categories. I have a Logitech mouse (Marathon M705) but that's just because that's what I could afford at the time. (It's a good budget mouse for all those wondering, it has lasted well) but I have been looking at Razer stuff for a long while now and this was the cheapest and easiest way for me to save up and get some Razer gear.

    I think this is a fantastic idea, props to whoever said it. I think that if this is the case complaints will drop like flies, and the Razer lovers will still be able to maintain use of p2p however if I were to add to that maybe you could make a daily max for p2p.

    bring back earning zsilver via playing games? I loved it when I could earn while playing WoW.
