@24CCM You will likely not receive an email until your Shadow subscription has been activated.  Please check above to get a better idea of your Shadow’s activation timeframe.  Your account page should also have a timeframe as to when your Shadow should be activated.

I ordered on Dec. 21. Could my account be activated before the end of March?

hey Brittaney any news about shadow ultra and infinite? would be nice to know more about it. thx

Which of the info for the uk is most accurate as the activation dates on both are different? T.I.A😁

@Menachem24 It’s possible.  I post weekly updated information to reflect the activations currently happening.   If there is a possibility that your Shadow’s activation may arrive earlier, it’ll be reflected here.

@digitalsignal All of the information about Shadow Ultra and Infinite in the US is here.  We currently don’t have any new information for the EU.  This thread is solely for Shadow Boost activations.  

@Richie94 The information here is by datacenter, not by region or language.  If you are in the UK, you will most likely be in the Paris datacenter.  Otherwise, check this link here to find out where your Shadow will be located.

Hello, according to my activation for January 14, does this affect my activation?

@Bryan Sosa Sorry, I don’t have information about specific Shadows.  If you’re referring to the CH/TX activations, then no, you should still expect your Shadow to arrive then unless otherwise stated.

Well, it is assumed that by the 14th I would have my activation, according to what they told me when I hired it, but no way, I hope they activate it because I'm from Texas

@ox_eye As mentioned above, no new information for Shadow Ultra/Infinite in the EU.  This thread is only in regards to Shadow Boost activations.

@lewisH We cannot expedite activations for users at this time.

why do i give u guys money to hold when u aint given me the shadow yet carnt u just take it out my bank when i get it ? just wundering

@lewisH Your first payment serves to hold your place in our activation queue and goes toward your first month of Shadow.  You won’t be charged again until one month after your Shadow’s been activated.  This means you won’t be losing any paid billing time.

ok thanks but u dont understand how much i need this now my laptop is a patato and im looking for other cloud services to play on but carnt find any wich have games i wanna play so i dunno what to do any options ?

Your first month pays for your activation and the entire month beginning on the day you activate. The payment is not wasted and pays for a full month, with no extra activation fee. Your month just doesn’t start until you’re activated. You aren’t billed for a 2nd month until you have been activated for a whole month first.
