Can someone from Shadow clarify exactly why activations are taking more than 6 months?..
Having placed an order I have been given an activation date of the 24th of June, is this correct?? if so why would it take over 6 months to activate.
Its a node in a data centre nothing more. I work for a distributor of I.T. equipment in the UK and if a client orders a node to be input into a datacentre it takes 3-5 days to do the build assuming parts are available if not add 2-3 business days for shipping.
An engineer can then be assigned to go to site and install and it literally takes them minutes to get it up and running.
Even with Covid restrictions in place this makes no sense as engineers/installers work in solitary anyways so its not like they have to worry about overly crowded data centres. Its not due to GPU shortages either as the GPU Shadow use is not a retail based GPU and as such is widely available.
Some clarity would be appreciated here please as I am seeing alot of the same questions being raised and with no clarity other than requoting individuals to look at “timescales for activations”.
In the nicest way possible that is not an answer lets get some clarity as customers/consumers as to why it takes 6 months.
I Genuinely would be excited by all the potential this business model has given the state of the console gaming industry right now as many people such as myself look to step away, but you can not expect a client base to pay for something that they “might” receive in the future for half a year.
