    agree with everyone else stating that expiry of zsilver is a bad idea. significantly reduces any incentive for people to use razer as they are unlikely to benefit. I can understand Razer introducing this as a way to reduce the number of items that get redeemed. It also significantly increases the bar to redeeming the higher zsilver items such as keyboards as you are forced to play much more to get it. Seems like they are slowly tightening the screws to earn rewards now that everyone is in the ecosystem and have invested time into it.

    Can't blame them, they ain't getting the gear for free.

    As MANY others have voiced, I'm not a fan of the expiration date. I was saving for the next exclusive since I have all of the "standard" Razer equipment that my desk will take.

    So should we translate that as "you have only year to save up for something"? I am saving for Hammerheads, but only one game I play is on the list, so i am basicaly forced to play this game only? Well... that's kinda harsh...

    Ask your parents / older friends to redeem it for you? :)

    That's up to Razer, but Min listens to his people so who knows? This has been posted before but here is a Razer toaster video.

    Hey Insiders,

    I'm here to drop several clarifications that could have been made clearer in my initial post:
    • Next month, ALL Razer zSilver balance in your wallet will have a 12-month validity period starting from October 2017. There will be no backdating.
    • The zSilver you've earned AFTER October 2017, will have a corresponding 12-month validity period from its earned month.
    • If you have a verified Razer zVault account, you may check your zSilver balance after logging in.
    We'd like for you to use your zSilver to redeem more rewards and help us upkeep our ecosystem. Implementing these changes can get tricky but we're committed to bringing you more rewards on a global scale:
    1. MORE rewards - new Razer peripherals, gear and swag will be added to the catalog
    2. NEW types of rewards - Steam game codes, DLC codes, and even digital gift cards
    3. EXPANDING the regions eligible for full Razer product redemption
    We still have ways to go from creating the perfect currency + rewards system but your ongoing support continues to drive us towards greater heights. All that said and done, keep the feedback coming! We already gotten some really great posts from this discussion and there's always room for more.

    Ooh... Game codes would be pretty cool, if priced right...

    And @Razer|WolfPack? Would it be possible to get a lower shipping fee by choosing to pick-up or something? I don't think I can (I live in India) :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:, but just a thought.

    The problems I have with zSilver expiring are that I do not play the games that you guys give zSilver for playing. It was nice when Diablo3 was on the list, but I play Minecraft, Diablo, Miscreated, Cities Skylines etc which are not generally things that are rewarded here so in order to save up for something to even turn them in for, it takes me more than a year. And as has been stated here, many rewards are often sold out. (I would even be open to an expanded partial xSilver partial cash system, or in other words more coupons. )

    Now I realize we are complaining about receiving free items, but we are essentially your street team right? We are the fans die hard enough to spend our time here, reading Insider articles, drooling over pics and other peoples Razer products and setups. We take our gear with us to friends houses, LAN parties, DreamHacks, Cons, etc, and if these guys/gals(I know I am not the only girl here) are at all like me, talk about your products with our friends, on our Youtube channels, in our Streams and really to anyone who will listen, incessantly. Who else would you want to reward?

    Well, there are always some free games on Razer's list. I get a very slight feeling that some of the list may be sponsored (the games trying to get people to try them out), so maybe just do that and try out a new game? You might end up falling in love. This is a great chance for discovery.

    my takeaways:

    -stop saving your zsilver for big items
    -and if you do save up/forget .... may get punished if I forget to spend my zsilver
    -cant think of something positive that came out of reading that 1st post ...

  14. I almost left after the changes in earning zSilver, now with this... I'll never be able to save enough to actually redeem them for anything. :frown_::frown_:

    I have been saving up forever for the chroma mug and when it sold out i was pretty bummed... but now hearing that my currency I have been saving up is being put on an expiration date is going to make getting bigger prizes near impossible with my work schedule (i just dont have enough time to game THAT much)

    You guys pulled a full "Club Nintendo" here. Making it 1. HARDER to collect zCoins in the last month and 2. making the zCoins less valuable (expiration date). And 3. removing most wanted items from the reward section (I still want a Mug ;))

    People are going to quit your "Reward" system and only the people who have a lot of time on their hands will sell your free stuff to the highest sellers on eBay (and likewise).

    i still dont understand why you people complain about the expiration date, you have a full year to earn zsilver which means you can buy anything you want from the shop stop complaining its only for the active users you got to understand that and as long as it is almost free because you got to pay the shipping dont complain and i got another question about you guys, Which company does have a program that you can get free gear ? , let me answer : Not even one soo stop it and be happy for what they offer us (gamers)

    i don't like the expiration date on zsilver but i can understand it , i'd like to check out new gear coming for zsilver before it can be reedemed something like 5 days before and the ones that get pulled off too :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Please tell me the lancehead tournament edition is coming back to the zSilver rewards catalog, I was saving up my zSilver all summer long for 104k zSilver to redeem for that mouse, I check the rewards and only the wireless one is there. So I am here with practically 95k zSilver thinking I only needed 9k more to be able to obtain it *sigh*
    I guess you all in charge of the zSilver rewards have some reasoning for this.
    Anyways I'll just wait a bit to see if it comes back if not I'll just redeem another product. Either way thanks for actually giving this opportunity to actually obtain some equipment by just playing our favorite games Razer zSilver - Google Chrome 9_5_2017 10_36_57 PM.png
