    Assuming you get the 900 zsilver from playing daily, 40 from login, and 30 from arena, then you could get a Stealth in about a year and a half. Theoretically, there would be a winter sale, so the price would be lower. Since there is an option for buying discounts, why can't there be one for buying a system since Razer doesn't sell a large variety? Im new here, so I wouldn't know the answer.

    The zSilver cost would definitely be astronomical if they did do this. But I guess I don't see why not.

    To me, the grind to get even enough for a mouse or keyboard is a fun little journey in itself. I couldn't even imagine if my zSilver goal was in the millions hahah.

    But hey, just like Confucius says: :wink_:

    Agree, yeah that will take forever and not worth grinding for.

    To be honest though, a $5, $10 or $20 off coupon for something that costs in the 1000's is kinda... well, a slap in the face. All I can think to say. Especially since you can only use a single voucher per checkout.
    I mean, if you're spending $2000, is $20 even anything? That's a 1% discount that is kinda pointless. if you have 1k or 2k to spend, $20 is literally nothing.

    I'd like it if there were another way to earn one of Razer's systems (without giveaways) that's guaranteed. I need a new PC badly and don't even have $300 to put towards one, really.

    Grinding zsilver for a laptop is abit too costly in time in my opinion. Even a keyboard like the chroma V2 takes more than 200 days, a laptop would take way longer than that. Not worth man.

    By the time you save up there probably is a newer and slightly more expensive system and even if you could you would need 1 million zsilver and zsilver caps at 300000. I also think the vouchers only last for a month so you would have to earn more than 10000 zsilver a day. Sorry kluless but your probably not going to do it unless you win a bunch of arena games in one month.

    If you've got 900 zsilver from playing daily, 40 from login, and 30 from arena, that adds up to 970 zsilver daily.
    If you look at the cheapest Razer Blade Stealth, it is 900 USD.
    If you convert 900 USD to zsilver, you get 900000 zsilver needed.

    Now for the number of days needed (assuming you earn 970 zsilver/day) you would have 900000 / 970 = 928 days.
    In years, that would be 928 / 365 = 2.5 years.

    I don't think it is practical to have even the cheapest stealth on the zsilver, although I think I've got a better idea;
    I personally think that zsilver's current implementation is lacking, I think that zsilver should allow you to reduce the cost of ANY order. For example, if you have 39K zsilver, and you want to get the firefly which is 78k zsilver, it should allow you to reduce the price of the order by half, and the rest you pay with money.

    I sort of agree and disagree.

    Why not make a low-end Blade specifically for zSilver reward? Of course the one that can only run game with integrated GPU. It can still encourage us without a station to buy the external gpu case thingy.

    Razer's been doing a lot of giveaways almost bi-weekly. We've also been given the chance to get peripherals for free with the zSilver and that's thousands of people. Believe it or not, that's hurting the company and asking for a laptop on top of it would be just greed. It's the first time in my life that I have the chance to play and earn things just cause I play. I won't spoil that just to ask for some more

    Well that is a lot of gaming time even if you win the Arena matches every day. Plus this is costing Razer money, but its more about allowing people to game better and be happier to get Razer in the hands of people who love them but can't afford them. A discount is one thing but getting a whole laptop on ZSilver dime will cost way to much unless they do it like they may do the Mug. Where is a limited amount for people willing to grind up that high!

    I think this is a bad idea. If there's a low-end thing with integrated graphics, it can't really be considered a Razer Blade, even if it looks like one. It won't perform like one. And it doesn't help people like me who can't afford a better PC, even though it's needed. It'd just be a slap in the face.

    No, mate. I think Razer already has laptops with only integrated gpu.
    They can try to lower its spec down, ex. i5, 4gb ram HD res. and solo SSD etc, to cut down the cost just a bit and let it run as redeemable reward. It doesnt have to have the same spec as low as $200 laptops out there.

    If it exists and u earned one, u only need to buy that box thingy (which is about 500 at launch if i remember currently. Now IDK) and the GPU itself. That is already half way, mate. And it's portable.

    If you can do that it means you don't have a full time job ... if you get a full time job you'll be able to get it sooner :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    understandable, but like I said, I can't afford. $200 is too expensive for me, even if it's something I need...

    You're from canada and $200 is too expensive for you? If $200 is "too" expensive for you, then I don't think you're gonna like Razer putting blade laptop as zSilver reward :big_grin_::big_grin_::big_grin_::big_grin_::big_grin_: as the shipping and god-knows-what-else quote could to be that much.

    I could be wrong, though. But having something big as rewards that would take you years to earn is not gonna happen

    Considering it would take more than half a year for a keyboard i let u imagine how long it would take to redeem a lazer laptop xD

    Yes. $200 is too expensive for me. Our rent $1200, NOT including utilities and mom makes barely enough to cover all that. We can't even go get fruits/veggies/meats for meals and have potatoes, rice or pasta 99% of the time. On top of everything, mom has multiple sclerosis, making it very difficult for me to have a normal 9-5 job as her job is offset by 2 hours and we only have the one vehicle. Transit means longer than 2 hours that she'd have to be at home, probably doing nothing as 1, it's hard for right now to even walk through the kitchen to get to the stairs 2, stairs suck and are very difficult for her and tire her out 3, she wouldn't go downstairs to get food or anything because she's not comfortable using knives and she wouldn't be able to take it back up.
    We don't have 1000's of dollars to spend on new things, much less a computer, which I actually really need right now, and even much less to spend on groceries/good food and other needed things.

    This thing about Zsilver was made to give something to the people who like razer and gaming, i think is a good idea they give something but we cant expect they will give everything we want!

    That can be cool but i think it cost so much zSilver, somthing like 4 387 733 zSilver for Razer Blade Pro (512GB) if we are based on price of Razer Mamba for exemple.

    GL & HF for that :)
