Yikes.

Just, like, from a PR perspective, "I cannot give you an update because I'm getting inconsistent information internally" does not strike me as something the representative of a company should be saying in a blog post lol. But hey, you do you Shadow

 


Exactly. Blew my mind when I saw that. Major red flag.

Must say though, I haven’t been personally delayed, yet. Nothing I have seen is giving me any hope. My activation is this week (supposedly).

Hi, I ordered from Chicago servers January 11,2021. It says activation date is January 21, 2021. Is this still gonna be activated on this date or will there be given another date of expectation?

so have i, im hoping we wont have to wait until next week and we will get it on the 21st like what was promised.

I ordered January 5th, and it said available on the 21st. But doesn’t look like they are doing any activations this week in the Chicago Datacenter. 

honestly think its bullshit that they have specific dates almost s if they are promising that we will get it that day but then they are just like “lol, yeah no. wait an extra month.”.

Happened to me. Ordered on early January, they said it’d ready by the 21st. Well, the 21st came and I logged in to find that my activation was pushed back until the end of February 🤦🏽‍♂️. Seems like ill have a better shot finding a ps5 or XboxSX before ill get my order activated. 🤷🏽‍♂️ 

 

My shadow says it will get activated on the 28th. I hope it happens. Im in cali data centers

Not a good sign. Multiple delays in service activation for various reasons, in what looks like every region that they’re in for every subscriber for the past several months.

Now they are delaying their notification of delay.

Sounds like they are imploding, but still accepting money from people that will never get service.

 

Damn right.

This is cancer. The countless days and months of waiting. Its pure agony.

Yikes.

Geez, thats like the only thing thats bringing shadow down, im sure its a great service once you get it and all, but man it really do be sounding like a mess atm :/. Bright side I can see is that atleast they don’t charge you monthly, not right after they activate your shadow.

You know what's funny? My shadow was activated last year. I am asked several times now, if I would recommend shadow to my friends. By all honesty what do you think I say? Yes shadow is nice and I am glad i ordered it last year. But would you recommend anything with a waiting time around 6 Months? You from Shadow have already a terrible reputation in gaming magazines and online test because of the waiting times and your incredible lack of information. Don't get me wrong, i really like your product and I hope shadow will be on top with cloud gaming. I have an amazing gaming experience, even with vr games like half life alyx. But you should stop telling people empty hang on phrases and start tell them how you will improve. And yes I know with covid everything is difficult but that can not be an excuse for everything. That critic aside I wish all of you the best and stay healthy. 

The newest excuse is not COVID, now its Cyberpunk...what a joke. Guys don’t tell us phrases. It is better not to give out any information than to fool people. I've been put off twice now and am already looking forward to the third time...NOT!!! Best regards from a angry customer from Germany.

Update: Due to receiving conflicting information, I will not be posting the new activation update until I have accurate information.

 

hmmm…?

Have a feeling that means there still are no activations this week for tx/ch but the activation estimate is still “mid January” like it has been all month.

Did you ever get your Shadow?

as someone who ordered on the 10th for Chicago servers, I will answer on his behalf. on the 21st “ activation day” it was then postponed until end of February. 

I though the postpone was only for Amsterdam, but it’s Chicago aswell?

Update: Due to receiving conflicting information, I will not be posting the new activation update until I have accurate information.

OK now I cancel my order, I totally loose trust in you.

More the time pass more blurry are things, we've be waiting long enough.

Your project is a monstres mess

hmmm…?

When will the weakly updates be posted...its 8”oclock for me. What time zone is this based off of?

 

Sad that it takes so long. When I finally have it and can't expand the memory, I'll go crazy. Had one before, but had to cancel it because I had too little memory.

I ordered 24th January and apparently i have to wait untill september 30th  :scream:  is this a bug or forreal? 

It’s forreal, you better search up on alternatives. I’ve been waiting 3 months for my Amsterdam instance, only to recieve an email a few days ago, that it has been delayed another month (which already happened in december, where it was delayed to january).

 

I’ve tested a Texas instance and tbh: You don’t even get what is advertised. You think you get an RTX? No. It's a similar one called “Quadro” with less power ment for businiess. Same with RAM. Nowadays you even have 16 gigs on an office laptop. But your Shadow instance will only have 12 gigs. Nice.

 

Now you probably think “Well there is Shadow Infinite. Costs more, but has 16 gigs”. Yeah have fun waiting for that. Just look in the threads here. People have preordered Infinite in 2019(!!!) and are still waiting for activation. It feels like a Scam!

 

Shadow will loose to it's competitiors sooner or later. Better use something like Paperspace or AWS with Parsec/Proton. It will cost more, but you won’t have to wait 3-12 months.

Not a question asking for my activation to be expedited but just one to hopefully help clear up some confusion!

I’m a UK based customer, and on “My Account” page it details the below:

Ordered on

16 January 2021

Available on

August 30, 2021

 

And on the first page it says activations this week are until August 30 for UK customers..

 

Does this mean that I’m likely to get activated this week or does it mean I’ll need to wait until end of August? I’m happy with either but just want to know where I stand to manage expectations!

 

Thanks!

It means this week were activated preorders of August 30th… 2020 ! 

I ordered 24th January and apparently i have to wait untill september 30th  :scream:  is this a bug or forreal? 

Lots of impatient crybabies on here pulling the ol' woah is me routine. 

Bruh, i ordered my shadow from texas cause im in Georgia and it said mid of January, it is the mid of january but now they say no because of more people r using it. Shadow team, if ur reading this, i will take out my order if you guys dont activate my account by wednesday

Hahaha! You're too funny Bruh, you actually think these people give two squirts that you're going to pull your order from them? You should probably get a handle on that immediate gratification thing it's going to come back to bite you in the ass at some point. Let them do their thing is what I say because personally I would much rather have a fully functional well-oiled machine as opposed to something that's glitchy and stupid because they're rushing to get you your order.

Please hire more people. I ordered my shadow nearly 3 months ago and I was really hyped to get my shadow pc this week. Unfortunately no activations this week for amsterdam servers:rolling_eyes:

Apparently, they have shifted the activations for this week to the end of February.

I just received an e-mail regarding this. I ordered it on 1st November and was expecting it this month. but they have moved it to next month. They really need more people….

I feel you are under the impression that they have set up my NEW shadow PC already. This is not the case.  This was about 2 years or so ago when they had them set up in a couple of days. Seeing as they also expanding to countries across the world, I could see the wait. But these are TOP OF THE LINE pc’s. All future upgrades. Newest Graphics cards, processors, all the time. All games on ULTRA graphics. These are by far some of the best PC’s that I have seen set up. But the date I have for the new one is the 28th of this month. 6 days. But I am also in the California data center. As long as you have a decent internet connection, you are going to LOVE the shadow PC.   

infinite/ultra sub?

Preordered Shadow Infinite 29th of October 2019, guess next week I will get mine.
Or not? @Shadow Team

Sounds good. I get mine on the 28th to so I’m exited. I have 5g internet so I should be ok. It’s cool that they are top of the line.

Were you still paying while waiting for them to set up a pc?

You should read the payment details they sent you in the mail. It’s under “Terms and Agreement.”
