    Wow, this update was truly quite disappointing. First cortex stops working since around Jan 12th and required the update/maintenance on 15th to properly fix it. Now, 5 new peripherals and 3 steam games are added to the zSilver rewards with some being removed but this comes with a pricey ~40% zSilver price increase to most of the rewards. A prior announcement to the zSilver rewards update would've been nice and courteous. Quite unfortunate and really sympathize with those who almost earned enough zSilver to redeem or just wasn't able to redeem due to vouchers being out of stock... :frown_:

    Well depends what country you're shipping but still most of the countries you have to spend a little but you're getting a razer product so its worth for the price of the shipping coz not everyone can afford the items that are on available reediming on the zsilver and i agree with you that its a little to much for a keyboard (315 days of playing non-stop) so hope for the best that razer lower a little the prices of all items!

    Well,I'm actually not satisfy with this move as they didn't make any announcement.
    I do accept that the fact they rise the price,but without informing....erm....
    By the way,in the January P2P refresh post they did mentioned that they are going to bring us new special event to earn zSilver. Well,let's hope that's not something like "Buy our zGold to earn more zSilver".

    But what I think is they wanted to balance out the inventory since there's only a significant price rise in keyboard.

    I've just joined as well, the zSilver prices don't seem crazy, but I get it. Why the increase? There's lots of opportunities. But how long exactly do we have until the points expire?

    I didn't expect to see zSilver prices go up at all.
    Glad I already redeemed my BlackWidow v2 before this happened.
    I hope they give us more double cap weekends after this.

    I was really shocked that some of the product was increased with huge amount. Luckily i did redeem my kraken pro v2 few weeks ago. I was bout to redeem the overwatch mouse pad but it also increased about 20k++ and i have to wait longer period to redeem it. Kinda disappointed razer did increased the value of redeem but not daily cap.

    Sadly welcome to a publicly traded company. Razer will start to become like every other company that sells gaming accessories just out for the bigger buck now that they went public. Was 30k or so from my Blackwiddow X now I am just going to get some smaller stuff and stop using Cortex. Yeah its great to get free stuff but at same time you still have to constantly focus on making sure you run that game for 5 hours sometimes 10. It is just not worth the hassle anymore I game consistently but would prefer not to run this bloatware in the background anymore.

    What rewards were removed due to outdate? I can't seem to notice.

    I only noticed Lanchead got removed.

    To everyone complaining about the increase in prices. Please do understand that they are basically giving you rewards for the time you play. It's no harm to keep playing some more. After all, they don't earn any revenue from this program. So increasing the prices a bit for high demand items is quite understandable.

    thats very diapointed. they became so expensive. whats the point of that? i was close to buy blackwidow chroma and now you added 76k zsilver? and i will still have to pay 53 euros for shiping. thats very disapointing. it adds 80 days to my progress.

    Waiting for Lanchead to be available in my country and suddenly it got removed and all required zSilver increased. such disappointment...
     
  16. The reason they gave for increasing the prices was because too many people are farming it/ using bots and then reselling it. However, they dont realise that by increasing the prices it gives those people farming a higher advantage than normal people like us as we dont get to play the full amount every day, while the people farming can get it pretty easily, hence making a larger percentage of redeemers the botters instead of real fans :/

    You have a good point. Anyway aren't they improved Cortex, so if you idle without play you don't get zsilver?
     
  18. Supposedly, but since when has people managed to completely stop bots lol. I would rather they not increase the price, and just refill it once in a while so people who checks it gets it first

    I saw all the price increases and cringed a bit. If it's truly over people botting in games to maximize zSilver acquisition and nothing else then maybe they should look towards an idea that was presented before the rewards fans who use Razer gear as was suggested/talked about before? The more gear you have the more zSilver you can earn overall or per minute.

    The price increases are a bit sad to me. but it is what it is. I'll still redeem when I have enough for the things I want. Glad the base station only went up 5k zSilver cause that was next on my list.
