    I understand that it is necessary to give other games a chance.
    That doesn't take away the fact that this new system sucks completely.
    It's either waste money on games i don't want for zsilver, get none at all or download a terrible game like dota2.
    Also taking away csgo, overwatch and LoL is a deadly mistake

    Many people don'¡t play CSGO or LOL, so there will be always people that will complain. If you want your games to be Paid to play, play the games and vote so it gets in the montly selection

    Still pissed the mug holder is gone. It's one of the only two items I even wanted from the program. That and the Firefly, preferably the hard version >.>

    If you really want the mug holder you should check out ebay. Just be prepared to pay a premium price. You could get 4 or 5 version 2 keyboards for the price the mugs holders are going for. It looks like the limited edition items have the real hidden value on the zsilver store.

    If I was razer I'd price them as the highest items in the zsilver store the next time they release a limited edition item.

    I'm pretty sure only the cloth edition of the firefly is available in the zsilver store.

    so lemme see if i got this right.
    you bate us to play our fav games for a while( csgo 4 me), then you take them out of your supported games, theen you make us vote which of a few games we want to be supported next month, most of which are on $$$bux. o_O

    really? ... if this is how it's gonna be i'd rather be out and just go with the game.
    I play games for relaxation not for collecting each month a different game; having your cortex platform next to me gaming was indeed a plus, but not one i care to follow to purchase other games, rather than enjoy my "classics".

    I'd recommend you guys review your position on the games list - offer gold for some premium list if you want to play it like that but DO keep the classics on the list, or expect a significant downfall for the active users @ cortex community?
    either way, I'll stick to playing the games i like, not the ones that'll be compatible with your razer vault +cortex platform..:wink_:

    Id love to have a 2x Silver on PUBG or even see CSGO return to the Pay-To-Play

    I have only been using this for a couple months. Previous to this, I was using something else that worked similar. They dropped their rewards program and this gave me an incentive to switch over especially since some of the games I currently played where on the list. It would have been even better if more games were supported.

    Having said that, what we had was good. The old system was better than what we currently have, but would obviously be better if more games were supported. It should have stayed the way it was but have the 5 featured games that give more points than the games that are not featured that month.

    While this new system carries a small "risk" for every player trying to get some zsilver, it's pretty cool! We are getting more involved on the gaming selection process, which is pretty nice! Nice move guys!

    What I'm seeing here is that we'll only get zSilver for playing the games Razer says we can. Regardless of the voting system since we don't get to select the games up for voting. And like a number of others have already posted...I don't play any of the Aug games. I only play 2 of the choices for Sept and it doesn't look likely that they will make the cut. It takes a full 5hr/day in order to get the full 900 zSilver at 3/minute. Some of us have real lives and don't jump around to what ever game happens to be popular this month. No real reason to keep Cortex now. Add in that half of my running processes belong to Razer figure it's time to cut the leash on the resource hog.

    The thing is, I don't have a gaming laptop or any peripherals of the sorts. And my internet is awful. This new Paid to Play thing is great! I would love to see at least one free game on the list of 5 games we get paid to play every month (on behalf of my other friends who can't pay for games). If this is possible, then I would love it!

    i think I'm liking the old system better, its great that we can choose the games we want but the chances of the getting the game we want as the month's P2P game is only 1/5, if we even own any of the games offered. Losing a lot of potential Zsilver with the new system.

    To RAZER!
    Users should be able to vote for 3 games and in total 6games per month. You choose 3, we choose 3 fair? :D

    Ok, this new system is kind of dumb. How about instead of taking away games, you promote games that earn double zSilver for that month? Or just will have double zSilver weekends. We should be able to earn zSilver for all games whenever we want, that way we aren't "forced" into playing the games you tell us to.


    So I was just curious how much they were selling for. Seems they are going for $400 USD!!!!! Um.....yeah, I'll go spend my money on something worthwhile instead of a stupid mug.

    Basically, they don't want to be giving out free zSilver to as many people as they used to. Fair enough. I can only hope that the F2P games I own eventually show up from month to month.
