    In August, Paid to Play brings out the big guns with Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, a new voting system and double zSilver weekends. Let’s dive in:

    Hey Insiders,

    Since the release of Razer Cortex Paid to Play, you’ve clocked countless hours playing your favorite games and scored an incredible amount of zSilver to unlock the rewards you want. Thanks to your feedback, we’re bringing in new features, games and events this month:

    VoteforPaidtoPlayGames_Banner.jpg

    Five games every month — vote for the titles you want to see. As we introduced more games to Paid to Play, we realized that only a very small group of popular games strived. That’s why starting now, Paid to Play will focus on a maximum of 5 games per month:

    - You’ll vote on Razer Insider to select 2 games you want to see compatible. The games which get the most votes will be featured the following month.
    - We’ll select the 3 remaining games based on their hype on Razer Cortex.

    You can already start voting for the September Paid to Play games at the top of this thread. The poll will close on August 31st and we’ll announce the winners in our next monthly update.

    Winner Winner Chicken Dinner — earning zSilver feels even better. In August, we’ve already selected 5 compatible games for you:

    - Playerunknown’s Battleground (by plebiscite :))
    - DOTA 2
    - Starcraft 2
    - Grand Theft Auto V
    - Tekken 7

    Whether you’re battling to the death in Pochinki or heisting in Los Santos, you’ll be rewarded with zSilver getting you closer to the Razer Lancehead TE, the Razer Ornata Chroma and more.

    Double zSilver weekends are coming — starting with DOTA 2. Cancel your plans and stock up on snacks cause we’re introducing double zSilver weekends. Starting Friday, August 4th 12:01AM PST, we’re doubling your zSilver earning rate (6 zSilver per minute) when you play DOTA 2. Make sure to seize this opportunity while you can, because the earning rate will be back to normal on Monday, 7th 12:01AM PST.

    August’s Paid to Play update introduces major changes to improve your experience. By focusing on 5 games per month and letting you vote for the titles you want to see featured, we’re able to let you customize your own exciting gaming journey while you score zSilver. Of course, we’re planning to bring you more features and events as we continue to improve Paid to Play – all thanks to your feedback. If you have any questions regarding this month’s update and the new voting system, feel free to ask me.

    GL HF!

    Wow, I'm literally sitting here slack jawed, finally StarCraft 2. I'm definitely liking this new system. Plus with the ability to vote for games razer is empowering the players to literally pick their poison, which is a good thing. A nice rotation of games to keep things from getting stale. And the icing on the cake, the Double zSilver weekends. I'm definitely vibing with the direction paid to play is heading!

    Thanks for the kind words Hucast! You perfectly summarized what we're going for with this new Paid to Play update. Good luck in DOTA 2 this weekend :)

    Hey Aell,

    Overwatch may be part of our Paid to Play game selection next month... Stay tuned! ;)

    The way I read it, is the games are going to be voted on and rotated on a monthly basis. So I'm assuming you'll have to wait until its back in the voting rotation during the next round of selections. Besides, Overwatch was there from the start, I think its fair to give other gamers who don't play overwatch exclusively per se a chance to earn silver.

    Liking some of the changes, but not really that it's limited to 5 games, most of which I don't own.
    While the voting does make me feel like we are a little more involved in the process, I wouldn't quite say it's like customizing the experience.

    At least there is a F2P game in there. Will it be standard to have at least one like that in there every month?

    Hey Manthe,

    We made sure that the roster of games contains at least one Free-to-Play. This month, to celebrate The International 7, you can score zSilver while playing DOTA 2. We even planned a double zSilver weekend on the game starting on Friday, GLHF :)

    Is it possible to add Warframe in the near future? :)

    Neverwinter is assured to be back on Paid to Play as 5 new games roll every month. Right now, you can play PUBG, Tekken 7, GTA V, StarCraft 2 and DOTA 2 to score zSilver. Next month, based on the results of the community's votes and the trendiest games on Razer Cortex, 5 new games will replace August's list.

    This new system allow us to bring you the trendiest games and the most requested titles from the community every month — keeping the list fresh and fun to play :)

    I have to say i'm quite upset that Overwatch was taken off the list. It's a very popular game and it's what i use to earn zSilver.

    So this month can you only accumulate clues with the 5 games listed above? I have so far made the palates with paladin and banged and now that you have them removed I have to download dota 2 with the ultralent line I have.

    Hello ,i think with the new changes you should add a badge on top of the supported games or a tab with the month's supported games as well as a tab or a choice for voting for the next month's supported games from within the app :)

    I dont like the new system. If i play something like 3 or 4 games i have to wait to see these games in rotation.
    This system should be nice if ADDED at the previous system, with 5 games with x2 or x3 zSilver earnings.
