    We created Paid to Play as an opportunity for gamers to get rewarded, just by gaming. Since the program’s launch, over 1B zSilver has been exchanged and over 35,000 rewards redeemed by our fans.

    We’re always listening to the community, and everyone’s feedback is important to us. With an increasing amount of negative feedback on the Paid to Play program, we’re going to be taking a hard look into the overall program and mechanics to do right for you and all the gamers who participated. While we take time to develop ways to make it rewarding and beneficial for all, we will suspend the Paid to Play program, effective March 1, 2018. In the event that we are unable to provide a satisfactory solution, the program will be suspended indefinitely.

    Making Razer zSilver the rewards credits for gamers has always been our goal, and we’re constantly working on ways to introduce more rewards to earn zSilver. With over 50 rewards on the Razer zSilver catalog, kindly note that rewards will always be on a first-come, first-served, while stocks last basis.

    If you’re a step away from redeeming your next Razer reward, here are other ways to earn zSilver:

    • Using Razer zGold to pay for your gaming purchases
    • Being an active contributor on Razer Insider
    • Logging in daily on Razer Cortex
    • Syncing your Steam account with Cortex: Deals
    • Subscribing to Cortex: Deals newsletters and more to be introduced soon

    We thank you for supporting Paid to Play, and welcome all feedback and suggestions on this thread. Should you have any other questions about Paid to Play, please write in to Razer Support or refer to our FAQs here.

    This is sad, I don't get why would the users of the P2P program would give any negative feedback.
    I hope they bring it back soon.

    The amount of zSilver you have remains the same.
    You still have your 53K zSilver and you can continue to redeem it to score rewards :)

    Only the P2P side of things will be suspended. Whatever zSilver you have is yours until it expires. You can redeem it for rewards at any time, unless vouchers are out of stock.

    Like @RazerGwynbleidd said, if you're close to redeeming a reward but you lack a couple thousand zSilvers when March 1 comes, there are some ways you can still earn zSilver until Razer could come up with a way to reward us fans that would benefit both sides.

    Don't know why people would give negative feedback when they are receiving something for free(exclude shipping fee).
    Weird:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    So, during this time, the means we will have to win zSilver will be the Insider achivement and the purchase of games on partner sites?

    It's pretty sad but thank you for what you do to improve your services.

    yeah man I'm confused tooo_O
    I mean we are able to get free stuff by playing some games we would play anyway and someone doesn't like it...
    So they ruin it for everyone:frown_:

    Thank You Razer for the zVault, an idea of P2P, and the opportunity to redeem my Lancehead. Without this program i wouldn't ever have it.
    Pity P2P was so exploited, lack of regulations and requiremants killed it soon after it begun.
    I'll keep collecting zSilver and stay green :wink_:
    Keep it up Razer!

    It's weird to think this way... the amount of time, electricity bill, and shipping fee just to get a reward; then sell them on eBay is crazy. I didn't do any research on how much profit could you earn by doing that but I believe it wouldn't be an excellent return on investment (ROI).

    Before the increase in zSilver rewards pricing, it took at least 139 days to redeem a single Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 and now it took 195 days with the P2P program. I don't see any significant benefit in AFK gaming or fake been active on Insider actually do any benefits to the someone who is looking for profit.

    I redeemed my razer kraken 7.1 v2 just before the price updates, and i was so happy. If i was going to sell it i wouldnt have profited from it and i was ready to grind for blackwidow X chroma. It is such a shame that the program is going to be limited or ended.
