    Now, I could ask a general question; like what games should they add? Or something like that, but I'd like to see what the rest of you think they should do to improve Cortex in general.
    First, I think that they should more games, but specifically something easy to pick up. Like Hearthstone, a game that won't break your PC if you don't have a good one, and can be very easy to pick up. Adding new/upcoming games like Prey or Earthbound could also be great. Maybe change the layout too, considering it looks... maybe a little too bright, and help reduce lag when going through different... 'tabs' in Cortex. Also add a place to show what games are Zsilver eligible. (There might be, bu I can't find it) So maybe just revamp the app to be easier to access various things and reduce lag.
    Those are my opinions, and I'd like to hear yours!

    Try Paladins if you dont have a good system to play on. It isnt demanding on the PC and is free so anyone can play it and earn zSilver easily.

    You mean to tell me to play Not Overwatch? Well in that way I'd betray my Overwatch Comrades! (I'm Master, 3553)

    You were saying of adding games that dont run well on Potato PCs so I figured you have a Potato PC too. If you can run Overwatch then you dont really need to Cortex boost etc. I was at 4303 in Season 2, havent played since cause I moved back to CS GO as it is a better game to play individually. Overwatch requires a willing and able team which is fun if you have friends who play too but cancerous if you try to play Solo.

    Dunno why you're getting half salty about it. And for reference, yes, I do. I currently use Xbox to play Overwatch. My 2,000$ PC is currently being built by me, and do plan on playing a shit ton of games on it. I don't have a willing team either, it's called hopping in game chat and talking to your current team. I can see why though, because you come off as normally aggressive, guessing you can't be nice enough for game chat. I do pick up people though sometimes, and my friend is with me, too. But really, not hard to communicate with other people to play competitively! :D

    Not sure why you think Im being aggressive, just pointed out what you said when you mentioned that Cortex should improve on being less laggy, which for most users with a good enough PC it isnt. And as far as communication is concerned that depends on a team by team basis. For instance you might have a full 6 man team ready to play overwatch while I prefer getting better individually so that when you eventually do play as a team you end up being much more adaptive to any team scenario.

    As for shit talking me, please refrain from that. New users apparently feel entitled to make a fuss about stuff that they cant understand properly.

    Says he isn't aggressive, proceeds to be a dickhead. A team isn't even good, yknow.
    Ever played with a 6 stack? It's awful. 3-4 stacks are the best. I don't see what 'new' users have to do with this, m8. You're just passive aggressive :)

    6 man teams arent good? So professional teams like Lunatic Hai and EnvyUs should just play with 4 people and get 2 randoms from the audience. Also if I sound aggressive to you, you probably dont realise you self contradicted yourself and now proceed to bash me with abuses and calling me names. Continue to do so, I honestly dont care, you feel entitled to pass judgement on me but im inclined to forgive your name calling simply because you have no idea of what argument you started and now proceed to justify it by name calling me.

    Any ways the thread is dead to be honest, and it was rich seeing you say "Cortex lag should be fixed" and then saying I have a 2000 dollar PC. If you did have a 2000 dollar PC I dont think cortex lags at all. I have a 1400 dollar PC with an SSD and cortex never lags. So whatever issues you have with your pseudo 2000 dollar PC are issues only you face so you might want to contact support.

    Came on here to find if people were complaining about the white window that is the Razor Cortex program. People already spend enough time staring at the monitor at work, or surfing the web, checking email, as gamers want to dedicate a few hours to staring at the screen even longer, any time you don't stair at a bright white screen is a blessing. You'd think that a program made for gamers would NOT be in white and as such blinding to the eye, loved the previous black layout so much more.
    Another thing I hate is the 'Game Booster' tab, click 'configure', and 'select process to terminate during boost' ...THE WINDOW IS SO SMALL! Only allowing to see 2 maybe 3 processee at a time. I like to compare process 'exe' names as a few have almost the same name, I also compare the memory used as I like to experiment with the 'dolby digital porcess' to maximize my earphone performance. Seeing multiple 'exe' onscreen at the same time was a big help, now I've been reduce to using my brain and memorization! It's a travesty I tell'yaz!
    Again the previous version was better. Visually anyway.
    I hope they change the layout back to black soon.

    I would personally like it to not lock up my computer every time i open up the gamecaster :/ I am not sure if i am the only one experiencing this or not.

    As a fan of dark themes, I have to agree with your first statement. An optional dark theme would be AWESOME! Most of Razer theming is dark grey/black and neon green anyway so it's not like it will be out of place (the white is more out of place lol).

    As for your second statement, this problem can be fixed by making cortex fullscreen. I can see 12 processes right now (all of which are Google Chrome haha).

    Dark theme aside, what Cortex really needs is some optimization and a connection to zVault. In the Rewards tab I can see my daily login progress and my pay to play progress. It would be super convenient if I could also redeem zSilver from the program.

    I think they need to fix some of the bugs on there, like every single time I try to log in, I can't log in because of "no network connectivity detected".

    I'm hoping they add the daily login to the Cortex phone App.

    They need to add a dark theme and dx12 support along with support for recording desktop and games. Thus you could use it with all games. So many games that it doesn't work on. I mean I can't even record minecraft with it cause it only sees the launcher and not the game(desktop recording mode would solve this)

    Also should add games like the division and wildlands to the pay to play games

    They should add more alternatives to gaining zsilver through cortex.
