    I would classify myself as a casual gamer. I play quite a bit each week. But I have a job, go to school, and I have three kids. I don't do tournaments, competitive, or long marathons. I don't buy games that frequently. Even after having used zGold to buy gems in SMITE and Paladins, I just barely broke 80K zSilver a week or so ago. (And with bonuses I am currently at 86K.) I don't earn zSilver at a very fast rate and had been saving up for a Chroma Mug Holder until recently. :sob:

    I most likely would never earn enough zSilver to redeem for anything I deem worth redeeming. Unless, of course, I am buying quite a few games/lots of premium in-game currency with zGold to earn zSilver. And then, everyday maxing out my 900 daily zSilver, (This would be highly unlikely as, in a spendy year, I might buy 10 games at most. And I don't normally buy premium currency.)

    I realize that this is all out of pocket for Razer. It's meant to give back and reward. But, I truly would prefer some other form of zSilver market regulation aside from an expiration date. Others have suggested a cap. As someone who would probably never even hit a 200,000 zSilver cap, I saw a suggestion for a 300,000 zSilver cap. Sounds great to me.

    I realize I'm not some big shot customer. I don't stream. I don't make content on any sites. I'm just one guy with what seems to be a humble amount of Razer products. But that's how I see this change. I will most likely "cash in" my zSilver and then abandon Cortex. (I primarily used it for the zSilver earning potential.) Especially since I have other programs that can do what Cortex does: broadcast, record, system boost... no real benefit to it anymore.

    All that said, I hope to eat my words *om nom nom* and see some super awesome rewards within reasonable reach for a casual like me. *crosses fingers*

    Is october of next year the moment when your zSilver will be gone or does this redemption already start from when you begin stacking up zSilver. For example I think I started in February. So will I lose the points that I earn previous February month or is it only that you start losing points October of next year.

    The image below answers quite nicely.

    So ANY zSilver you have earned since you started and will earn from now until October 31st of 2017 will have an expiration date of October 31st, 2018. (That's what I understood anyway.)

    I'm still hoping to see the BlackWidow TE Chroma V2 with yellow switches to redeem ^^)

    Who's with me?

    Nice, after closing source for having more zSilver then limit the time to use zSilver :oops:

    Cortex is the only way to have zSilver now and only 900 daily.

    I hope that this is last "bad" news.

    or I suggest choose one special game to double limit 900 to 1800 each day/week, and the owner of the game will pay for that great PR from Razer :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_:

    omg. They removed the razer kraken 7.1v2, I've been saving up for that and it's been months of grinding (I'm at 94k zsilver) and they remove the Razer Kraken 7.1v2 and now I can't get it after SO long of grinding and that was the only thing I was saving up for, I currently have over 1,000 hours of csgo played and I started csgo with zSilver. Plus August was the only month I couldnt grind because of the changes that there are only 5 games available and by my calculations, I can't get to 130k zsilver by the end of september (school starts for me, I play less and why does csgo have to be added this month D:) And I could've gotten 130k zSilver by now but I guess not, rip Razer Kraken 7.1v2 :slightly_sad:

    Hi, am I able to apply 2 checkout code at once? When redeem zSilver rewards, does it come with freebies which doing promotion at store?

    They might add it back to the system, From what I know they never had any codes left for the Kraken 7.1 V2 for the past week or so, So they might have took it off until they can get more codes that you can redeem.

    EDIT: Seems like you can't checkout two codes at once :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. Freebies also do not come with products.

    Razer does this with some games on the weekends, For example this weekend CS:GO gave off 2x more ZSIlver a minute but a limit of 900 a day, But a a couple weeks ago all games had double the daily cap of ZSilver (1800 a day, Not 900 a day) and Overwatch on its own had Double ZSilver per minute.
    It would also be cool if they do this for the week, But I doubt they would since Razer still needs to try to make some profit off of this as this is costing them a considerable amount of money.

    Do you think they're gonna add the Razer Kraken again?

    Smart system. Then people will have to spend them, and every year new players will have a chance at new items. :D

    It's really shaping up! Good job Team Razer!

    not the best idea, now those rewards that cost the most Zsilver will be even harder to get, since zsilver will be disappearing.

    Theres always the chance. It seems to be that the Kraken is one of the most redeemed products on the ZSilver product lineup, So we may see it again in another month or so, Who knows.

    This is getting a like when it re-sets, all of it except the abandon Cortex part.

    To all of you accusing me of being on Razer's "payroll". See, I ain't on Razer's sack all the time, I can be un-happy with stuff that they do.

    I can't wait until the next round of complaints, getting my popcorn ready!

    Looks good! I'm not sure I like the expiration date on the currency, but I like the new additions to the catalog!
    When is the new Basilisk going on to the Catalog? :smile_:

    Well, if you do the math, the total zSilver you can earn just from Paid to Play is 343,100 zSilver. Currently, the highest-value product in the zVault is the Overwatch BWC, which would take 249 days of Paid to Play to earn. Even if you got THAT, you would still have enough then and there to get a 100,000 zSilver item (like the Chroma Mug Holder was).

    If all your zSilver was gone because of the refresh, it would only take 107 days of Paid to Play to accumulate enough to get the exclusive. And remember that this situation is ONLY if you did the maximum Paid to Play time every day for a year straight, and then didn't accumulate more zSilver for an entire year - the only way to have that much and then lose it all in a single day.

    Dude, your zSilver won't expire for at least a year. Not soon.

    Maybe Razer can add an icon that tells you when your balance is going to expire. I hate doing math and it's hard enough for me to keep track of bills let alone keep track of when my balance expires.

    It's going to be shown in zVault. They have thought of that already. :) **Quote from the announcement** "If you have a verified Razer zVault account, we’ll tally up your zSilver at the end of each month and update you in a monthly email sent to your registered email address. You’ll also be able to check your zSilver balance after logging into your Razer zVault account. Additionally, when you redeem rewards, zSilver with the earliest expiration date will be deducted from your wallet first."

    I know somebody told you that you can check out 2 codes at once, but at the moment that is not possible. Only one code per "cart" in the store. If you want to use 2 codes, you have to make 2 separate transactions.

    I started collecting Zsilver almost from very begining of the Zvault (from february or march) and if I understood well, on next february every Zsilver that I collected in only that month will expire, and then for next month and so on?

    P.S: sorry for bad language :)
