Hi everyone, my preorder status changed since yesterday and my subscription and payment site tells my, that my subscription ist active since 25. June. But everytime I'm trying to login I get the error “A:403 - e-mail or password incorrect” but I'm pretty sure I used the right ones. I also tried to login on three different devices (iPad, MacOS, Android) and changed my password. Is this maybe normal through activation? I hope someone could help me out. :) Greetings Oma (from Germany)
On 5 October I was billed for my first payment under the new pricing structure. going from $12 USD to $30 USD. While I understand the need for this price increase it does bring up a concern. I was fully prepared to transition from Shadow Boost to Ultra when it became available. My logic was (and is) that $360 a year would still be less than I’d likely spend on PC hardware upgrades over the same period of time and the hardware on Ultra was more than adequate for my needs. Now I am essentially paying the same monthly cost as Ultra without the benefit. The hardware currently running “my” Shadow is the equivalent of a six year old gaming PC. Which brings me to my question.How long will we have to wait before we find out what the new hardware landscape will look like for Shadow? Speaking frankly and for myself alone, the $30/mo I am spending for Shadow could easily be put into a new gaming PC with better specs.
Hi there, so while searching for any official news regarding current activation progress on infinite preorders, I couldn’t find anything. On german discord servers, moderators said, that the “by end of summer 2020” means the latest activation date. So I guess it is safe to assume that some/most people will get activated earlier. What is the status here? Why is there no official post about infinite activation progress?
To: @Ryan from Shadow, @Greta from Shadow We have read and seen all of your comments. We are temporarily closing down the comments to prevent misinformation. We understand the current frustration that people are experiencing and are working hard to address these issues. We will be coming out with more communication soon. We would like to reassure everyone that they will get their Shadow. -Greta, CM UK. In regards to your above decision to close the weekly activation updates, I want to point out as a customer I feel this is a mistake. You are taking a BIG step backwards, putting me back in the dark AGAIN and making me want to cancel my pre-order and just buy a PC! I’m sure there are others feeling the same way. Keeping us informed of progress through activation is key to assurance that it is coming. Publishing this information weekly was refreshing and open and honest! Closing it off again just feels like cloak and dagger and dishonesty or an inability to deliver. If you can s
Greetings,So, I just today ordered my Shadow Boost, and how come it says I’ll need to wait until March 29, 2022? That’s like, a year and I don’t understand why do I need to wait so long? I’ve seen other people get their Shadows in like, 7-15 days yet i need to wait a whole year? Adam
Hi, last year in autumn I pre-ordered a Shadow Ultra as an existing customer (from Germany). Unfortunately there were problems and the activation of my package was postponed to early summer. Now it's the end of May and next week the summer officially begins. Unfortunately, I haven't received any updates as to when I can expect an activation. I have absolute understanding that further problems or the COVID-19 crisis might cause the whole thing to be delayed. However, a little more transparency would be desirable, when it finally goes on. Hence the question: When can I expect my Ultra to be activated?
I’m sorry, but I am not going to pay 29.99 for the exact same PC. Either you guys show some transparency on why in god’s name you’d up the price and eliminate the other options, or I, and I’m sure many others, will be cancelling.
So my shadow £17.99 after 2 and a bit years is now nearly double the price monthly £32.50. With it seems no increase in specs or service at all and an outstanding upgrade dating from 2019.How is a doubled cost justified by the company when there is no addition of service or specs? What price is expected for the ‘elusive, upgrade that was £24.99?… £50? Your present customers weren't given options with your new pricing or a range of plans for customers. Just an agree to this price or service will terminate at end of billing cycle. Thanks for coming now off you go. I for one am disappointed and look forward to any reply
My Shadow sub recently disappeared (possibly relating to the changes going on currently). So I went in to re-subscribe and the only option I get is a pre-order for Shadow Boost in March 2022. Does this mean I can no longer use my Shadow even though £29.99 has been debited from my account today? I saw this post but does that mean everyone has lost access to their Shadow accounts until 2022?
Hello, I have noticed its been 4 days since I ordered my Shadow and it still says under 1 hour.Do anyone have a approximate of the time? I sat the data center at Georgia, USA because I bought it for a friend with VR.would that be the issue? also my discord is in my profile if needed.
Hello! I orded Shadow Boost around 6 days ago. And i searched through the whole internet for information about Shadow activation times. I read a post that said it was 0 to 15 days. But that was from 2018 so i dont know if that is still the case. On https://account.shadow.tech/order-tracking it will say: “Available in August 2020”. By reading that i was completely confused… Is it 0 to 15 days until activation? Is it activated in 2020? I am really confused and i hope somebody can reply to this with info about account activation. Thanks! (Btw I live in the netherlands, maybe it will help)
@Malte from Shadow Sorry to hijack this thread, but the current situation with Infinite and Ultra needs more discussion than ARM support in my eyes.We've been waiting for over a year and all we're told is "as soon as we have some solid news we will let you know"!? Yeah, of course you'll provide us with news once it's ready, but our preorder from 2019 is long overdue! Your default answer provides us with ZERO information.The account dashboard has not been updated for months and we are now in the targeted timeframe, "early 2021". Either update the date or provide us with a status update. We don’t even have a thread dedicated to the current preorder situation.If you really care about the community, this should be the weekly topic. You should have noticed that by now almost every second comment is about Infinite or Ultra. Do something about it!
As stated from the r/ShadowPC reddit; First off, I would like to say that using Shadow was a life altering experience for me as I had made all my edits (video editing) on there seeing as how I cannot do it on my real PC as it’s not strong enough to use the program. Without Shadow, I wouldn’t have met countless friends on games that I cannot run on my normal PC. Throughout using Shadow from these past years, there were bumps on the road with this service but they never cease to bring me a valuable and amazing gaming experience. I loved and was proud to have owned a virtual machine. My real PC couldn’t run literally 80%-90% of the games I play now, but with Shadow, I was able to run them with ease. Now, let’s talk about the present (at the time I am writing this.). Yesterday, I was making the most of my Shadow and was just setting up my Discord to look fancier using BetterDiscord. I went to go lay down on my couch whilst music was playing and then the music had suddenly stopped. I went t
