    I feel like I got cheated a bit. Even though I enjoy chatting on Razer Insider, I was looking foreword to getting the Deathadder Elite mouse. Now Razer switched to ZSilver, and it will take FAR longer to get anything. I was at about 1/4 way there, now with the new system, I have a long way to go yet. For 500 posts, you only get 250 ZSilver?!? It takes 10,000 ZSilver for a $20 discount, and it used to take 250 posts for that kind of discount. I'm really frustrated about this, and I think its really unfair.

    My Opinion :

    "Rewards System" is just an addition to the forum, you always have the opportunity to purchase a mouse in the store.
    Ok u can be flustrated but Unfair ,? 20$ discount for FREE is unfair for you ?
    Its a forum of people interested in razer products, not a place to get paid periphery for free, that they provide such a reward system is only in their good gesture, and you can not demand anything from them.

    And yes 500/1000/2000 silver isn't enought like for 2000 posts etc, here i can agree with you
    sorry for mistakes

    Would you believe me if I told you that the DA Elite reward is still available till June 1st? Here is the link.
    You can find all the old rewards on it. You have till the 1st of June to get it. Good luck. :)

    Well I like your idea of thinking you are getting a free peripheral with the DA Elite but keep this in mind, you have to buy something from the Razerstore to claim it. And like most people who dont want to pay for shipping, usually everyone orders $49 worth of stuff or above. Which is kind of like you paid $49 or above for a bundle that got you whatever you ordered + the DA Elite. Thats my way of looking into it and looking at it that way you will realise that zSilver makes more sense by earning it through playing games, the insider achievements are a good supplement but no one will get 100,000 zSilver just by participating on Insider, you need to go at this on all fronts that Razer provides.

    That's an interesting way of looking at it. It makes sense that way, but Razer's other "fronts" don't work for me. Cortex slows down my PC and crashes, Arena doesn't work because I don't play any of those games. Same goes for Play to Earn, though that could really take off if they add more games.

    Cortex does slow down CS GO for me too but I usually mess around custom maps etc when I launch cortex and play. You should try Paladins if you can, not plugging them here but its a free to play game and its interesting enough that you easily earn enough zSilver through that. As for cortex crashing, you should try running their logging software to see what makes Cortex crash. Contact their feedback and support page, they have the necessary logging software there. Also Arena has a voting tab where you can vote on matches, its Esports Elite, I have no knowledge about Dota 2 but I vote on random teams and sometimes win extra 13 to 30 zSilver per match voted which is also a nice bonus.

    As for adding new games, I am trying to get R6 Siege added just by pestering Ubisoft into agreeing to it. Whatever game you love, I suggest asking the devs to look into cortex as its not a really difficult integration to go through. Remember Paladins, made by a small studio, got their game integrated into cortex fairly quickly.

    Just bringing this up, I am pretty sure Min said that you don't need to launch games though cortex, As long as cortex is open on your PC it should count for ZSilver. Also if you don't have gameboost on it may help, And if you do have it on turn it off since for some games i find, Gameboost just slows them down by a considerable amount.

    Thanks! I was a little disappointed as well, so knowing this is still there is actually extremely awesome!

    I tried launching cortex and CS GO individually but it doesnt give out zSilver like that for me atleast. I have to launch it through cortex for it to track it. Also yeah boosting is optional but I believe the in game UI is what causes a feeling of slowing down. However my fps dont indicate any losses so it might just be in my head.

    I received zSilver for playing a league of legends game where I opened cortex after loading into the match. So we can get zSilver in addition to the other rewards until June 1st?

    Hey everyone! Thanks for mentioning my post. And yes there are technically 2 rewards systems at the moment! (New and old) Links are in the thread posted above.

    As for the system, i agree it needs some tweaking.

    My recommendations
    • System to dislike a post, basically putting a negative like on their profile. Or at least a 'spam' vote option to cut down on that sort of thing and help out the mods. 10 different spam votes? Post automatically removed.
    • System to grant zSilver for liking/following! You've given out 1000 likes? Here's another 50 or 100 zSilver just for engaging in the community more! This would help out everyone, and make people who are just lurkers feel more a part of the community. (I know there is a few lurkers who never post/like/follow but read tons on here!)
    • A system to get me free cupcakes....
    • The current hand-out value of posts/likes/followers converted in zSilver seems quite negligible. I can theoretically earn 1100zSilver every day if i do all the logins/play on cortex/vote for games and be correct (900ish is more reasonable). So in 3 days of doing this i've made more zSilver than being a very active member of this forum for likely a year to unlock all of the rewards.
      • I would suggest before upping the rewards... to include the other two systems to keep the workload of mods/staff from dealing with a plethora of spam posts to get counts up.
    • Some sort of weekly giveaway, have to get a like and a post each week to enter, giveaway 1000 zSilver. Keep people active each week and reward those that engage in the community.
    • Each new 'official' announcement, the person who posts it (Staff) gives out 1000 zSilver to the best question or statement about what they posted (Entices more than just posting 'i want this' after each new announcement)

    Not all are easily implemented, but i dont think its asking too much for any or all of them. Small little things that would make the community feel like there is more direct investment into insider.

    "Even if i don't earn the zSilver i saw that JoeSchmo got 1000 zSilver for replying on that new news thread! Thats super cool! I'm going to work harder to post better content"

    I love the new Zsilver sytem, just wish I would be part of the first come first served on the Chroma mug. That live event with Min had me jealous again and wanting it. I can buy it but not at the Ebay $500 sale price on Auction. The post count is fair imo. I have been looking around here for years and not really posted much till this year. #RazerMasterRace

    Or buy yourself $49 worth of Razer stuff since you need it to get free shipping from Razer on your free mouse ;)
