    There are far too many factors that make this expiration the worst idea yet. Prime example, in my case, when ARK: S.E. was eligible for earning Silver, I barely earned any silver at all. ARK is easily one of two of the games that I've put the most hours into from my steam library. During its time of zSilver eligibility, ARK had not officially released yet, it just reached it's official release status in the the past two weeks. Because of this, I rarely played ARK online. Let's just say that I've lost far too much progress in ARK to server lag to be able to mentally handle starting over again more times than I can remember. In addition, I am a courteous player who likes to build bases that are, awing, for lack of a better term. And building large, complex structures in ARK effects other players and their load times negatively. Therefore I keep my castle and mansion building habits offline where they won't cause players passing by to blindly lag-stutter their way to the feet of a rampage-ready Carno. There's no "if" about it, large structures WILL give players a hard time on servers. This is why I create the best of work offline. If friend want to play with me, then I'll hop onto the server they are on at that time.

    Where am I going with this?

    Well, there were quite a few times (still having these issues to this day, no matter the activity or workload) where I was playing ARK and was not earning Silver. This was due to my not knowing that my ISP was resetting my router multiple times throughout nights of that month. Other times of that night, the ISP was simple throttling my connection. The indication of this was obvious when I conducted several methods of ping testing only to see that either only two packets were being returned out of 50 for every minute that passed for up to three hours, OR, the ISP reset my router without warning and the connection never reestablished leaving me to have to manually reboot the router whenever I found that that was the issue. There was never simply no connection at, as my ISP hardly has any "outages" in my area at all, despite their horrible practices and ethics. The issue here is that I never knew/know there's an issue with my connection until I'm done with a gaming session. And no, it's not just me. My friends/family have the same issues, even my neighbors. My friends are spread all over the continent. Now, more issues are piling on top of the ones already in effect.

    So where I think I'm earning Silver, I'm actually being set back from the goals I want to reach, to be able to acquire something sweet from the Razer Silver Rewards Store. On top of these issue I have been dealing with, along with others, we come to find out that the Insider currency we save for rewards that are high in cost (not complaining about rewards cost), the currency some of us likely lose sleep over to earn, it going to have an expiring date?? I can guarantee this, some of the loyals are going to just call it quits after this decision. Myself included.

    Now, something that you COULD do to make things a bit more worth while that wouldn't make this new decision completely bonkers, is to add a sort of warranty voucher into the rewards store which extends the expiration date for additional 12 months. Don't get to crazy with the cost of that though. I can see myself coughing up about one-thousand to twelve-hundred Silver for additional 12 months. And of course there would be no limit on how many times one can redeem these "extended warranties". Only that they can only be bought with Silver when the time extension of the current active "warranty" has exhausted (if one was purchased for the account already).

    Something along those lines. But to just take away what people have risked blood-clots in their legs for (seriously gamers, get up and move around every now and then), I can't stand behind that.

    I play a lot of games, but the list is pretty small. For those who don't play a ton, there isn't much incentive. By the time someone earns enough for a 100k zSilver item, most of those points would have been expired :slightly_sad:

    Outside of that, the expansion of rewards are awesome and the program itself is amazing. It's something I wish Valve did outside of their "achievements" which seem to matter very, very little. Thank you guys!

    Been saving up points for a few of the higher priced items and you keep making the games that reward zsilver ones I will not play (and since you do not reward idle time I will never even install them) or games I do not own :/
    Its like I keep getting flipped the bird for being loyal <_<
    By the time I would have been able to get something I will have lost it all from this...
    Guess I will trash cortex and go back to just buying things as It may take years to raise the funds for this poor gamer but its better then saving up points just to see them poof because there is no way to earn points fast enough. *sigh*
    It was good while it lasted I guess..

    I've been loyal to Razer for years. If the expiration goes through with sliver expiring monthly, I'm done. That is complete BS and it doesn't make the rewards program worth it. And having a crap rewards program is a good sign that things are going to start going down hill quickly.

    If the program expiration was changed so that it the points expire one year, from the last date of earning that would be understandable, in line with most other major companies rewards programs, and not a complete mushroom stamp.

    i feel like they would more likely Reduce the daily earning vs Reducing the amount of time zSilver lasts.

    I think 500-600 a day would be the lowest before i say im done (600x365=219k Annually)

    When zSilver can be spent in Russia? I have already accumulated over 110,000 zSilver, but I can not spend it. Is Russia planning to add to the list of countries supporting the possibility of buying goods for zSilver currency?

    While we do not have a date on the restock on vouchers, keep an eye out for Razer zSilver updates on our social channels.

    Which is totally okay! We've got a voting system going where you can rally the community to have feature games that you want. Alternatively, you can take a look at some of the feature games and try it out.

    >.< If i earned Zsilvers before 31th october 2017 they would expire at october 2018 too? or maybe they'll expire a year after the effective earning? or for expample if i earned it on march they will expire on march too?
