    BlackWidow Chroma V2 is literally the best product you can get with vouchers, so we should have expected to increase it's price. But now it's so close to the silvers maximum cap, it'll be a lot of work for it.

    Hey guys!

    I know I'm not the only one with this situation, but I think it was a really rude move from Razer to suddenly increase the price of rewards in the store. Especially keyboards. Couple days ago I made a thread whether I should buy Ornata Chroma or BW v2, but they increased it so much that I should reconsider if I'd like to buy any of them cause the BW v2 costs the MAXIMUM zsilver you can ahieve.

    Like seriously Razer, it's really not fair....been waiting for a refresh and this is what we get. When I finally get to buy the BW v2, vouchers will be out of stock again, then wait several weeks again, and maybe they even remove it completeley.

    True. We are not blaming for changing the zSilver value, but, this is kinda unfair if you do it in sudden or without prior notice.

    What’s more ironic is that you mentioned “We’ll also bring you new special Paid to Play events to help you get closer to the zSilver rewards you want. More info coming soon, so stay tuned!” in the recent January update post.

    PS: Please bring back Blackwidow Chroma V2 TE.

    I would doubt they are going to remove the Blackwidow V2 from the catalog in general, if they would end up doing anything they might rotate switch types in the future.

    I mean, with the demand the program has gotten over the past little bit and the surge of people having the ZSilver to redeem some higher end items, they had to make some kind of cuts somewhere to slow everything down. ZVault had a player base surge a few months back around the summer, and this past month is around when those people from the surge started to redeem stuff. One of the main reasons they likely rose prices is because they want vouchers to stay in stock for a bit longer then what they normally do, and they still need to try to make money out of it somehow, since Razer is pretty much loosing money by doing this program for us.

    Anyways, IMO at the end of the day they are still giving us a way to get free Razer products, and while it might take a while to get it is better then getting rid of the program all together, and if they felt like it they could end the paid to play program, or make it much more strict and the process with Paid to Play longer.

    Yea but I've been saving up for a really long time, didn't miss a single day, or maybe just one in like 7-8 months.

    Same here. At least you have some ZSilver built up already and will not need to be one of those people that need to pray they will have enough ZSilver in time for a keyboard or something before it gets deleted.

    They need to keep the whole thing balanced so this was inevitable. Just my guess here but the Free to Play games always win the votes (only 2 exceptions have been PUBG and CSGO) so when there's less money coming in, there's going to be less coming out. The people buying zGold are the real MVP's.:punch:

    It's nice there are lots of games now that are Paid to Play:big_grin_:, I'm hoping for more exclusives in the Vault sometime, but it's crazy how many options there are now considering it started at about 5 things.

    Umm. I just realised they did not restock the Ornata and BW v2. Just increased the price, nice.

    I heard in some regions it was not restocked yet, but at least for me here in Canada the Blackwidow is restocked, meaning that it is likely restocked in North America and it should be restocked other places soon.

    Right but why can't Razer give the zSilver team more vouchers if they are just digital codes.

    I would say budget. If Razer is like most other companies, then they likely put a certain amount of money to certain areas. Since this is one of those things that they loose money on, there might not be that much of a big budget for it, and if they gave unlimited vouchers or a lot more then they do now, they simply would not be selling many of those products from their site since people know they can just get them for free and not be limits on how many are being put out there for free.

    I dont think razer is losing money on this, if they have the slightest business mind (what they obv have) the 5 games on your list that you can get Zsilver out of is sponsored.
    So this is actually if managed correctly is just an other source of revenue since sponsored content is really expensive nowadays.
    I dont think this is a giveaway programe, I think this is a very cleverly disguised AD.

    I love that the chroma strips are on here. That way when everybody says "you already have everything on the site!!" I can just scream that I need more chroma and buy more strips.

    Most of the games in the program don't have anything to do with Razer, They have contact with people at battlerite, otherwise I think that is all for this month, and even that game is not sponsored from what I can tell, they only have Chroma Lighting intergrated with that game. The stuff that they are partnered with are the different sites you can use ZGold on, and then using ZGold also gets you ZSilver.

    They not boosted only zSilver on weekends, they boosted also rewards price...hmm, how about bringing back most wanted item, the mug holder:) or new exclusive one like the toaster to make us boosted again. Those exclusive items price could be raised;)
