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.   

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:

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

So long.. but i wait ! Can’t wait to play MFS2020 😍

I was kind of skeptical about January. (Chicago DC) I am similarly skeptical about February. I am thinking I’ll go ahead and build/use a PC and if Shadow works out, I’ll sell the PC. Sure, I’ll take a loss, but I will at least have some compute while I wait. My use-case for Shadow is Oculus Quest and I’m impressed by Shadow’s efforts to support it properly, so either way I’ll hang in there.

Some have remarked on the extra long wait for Europe. Obviously I have no real insight, but my experience is that while Europe is lovely and very efficient in some respects, it is sometimes hard to get things done.

 

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?


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.

Only a few Days before my activation week I get a message that it will change to the end of February. I can understand that it takes a little longer because of the work. But a postponement of a whole month? And i find the second one already quite cheeky by now. 

I had hoped to use Shadow as a long-term solution but, slowly I get more and more concerns. 

There is nothing wrong with prioritizing existing customers over new ones for a small company. You can expect no down time when you get it so I am not sure what this prioritization has to do with the long-term solution for actual users. It is actually good that they are doing this. Why pay 15$ for something that might not work half the time ? They make sure that existing customers have no down time and when you will get it, you will also have no down time, hopefully.

I have had two Shadow PC’s.  While it was in it’s Beta phases, I was still dealing with a few bugs and things that kind of turned me off of it. I understood that it was Beta so the Shadow team was still doing work on the applications. I came back a few months later to see if anything had changed, and they have made some new changes. They had each of my Shadow PC’s ready within a couple days. This is before they had any Data centers here in America. I feel the wait times we are experiencing now is the cause of how well the company is doing. People enjoy the Shadow PC. They have many of them to set up. I am coming back to see what changes have been made. It has been about 3 years since my last Shadow PC. It is going to be nice to see the changes that have been made.

I urgently need my shadow because i need it for my school work and my laptop is basically dead and i cant do anything. If u could activate it that would be great. I wont be playing games

Ende Oktober bestellt, Aktivierung für Januar geplant und heute bekomme ich eine Mail von Shadow das Sie die Aktivierung auf ende Februar verschieben müssen weil es wegen Cyberpunk 2077 einen zu hohen Datenverkehr gibt :joy::joy::joy:  

Das ist einfach lächerlich es auf das Spiel zu schieben!

Sagen sie doch einfach die Wahrheit! Das ihr Team gerade überfordert ist wegen dem Ansturm durch Covid19 wegen Home Office das ihre Server gerade einfach zu schlecht sind mit der Aktuelle Nutzer Zahl umzugehen.

Ich habe mich zum Glück doch entschieden meinen eigenen PC zu kaufen und Cyberpunk 2077 zuhause in 2 Wochen gemütlich durchgespielt.

I figured it out myself, it’s not what i meant whatever you answered but if you think the wait is worth, then thanks for your info. I do believe it’s worth it, if you havent used a good pc in your life and want good games. 

When will the next activation dates be? Please reply. I missed Amsterdam dates so i need you to tell me how often you do these activation dates.

The activation could be from end of January or end of February I don’t know especially from Amsterdam when you’ll get it. Hope this helps :)

If not, a lot of people are actually refunding but if wanna wait it’s kinda worth it.

Placed my paperspace order today. I suggest other do the same!

Can you tell me how good it is. I want try ordering it too.

Shut down registration. Do not accept new clients. Pushing activation back a week or two is one thing, but multiple times and now over a month extra on top of the already long wait? That’s is just going to harm your reputation.

I agree they should at least accept servers that don’t have high usage or people who have been waiting about 2 to 8 months because it seems they are doing activation on newer accounts then people who have been waiting longer.

Dude I’m pretty sure your gonna get it on that date it’s just the Chicago and Texas servers.If not I suggest a refund because of the misleading information.

This frustrating because of cyperpunk 2077 game not even that good. I just paid for shadow a week ago and I was supposed to get it today, but no I have to wait end of February cause of cyperpunk 2077 stupid game….

Edit: I actually ordered it 2 weeks ago

Was suppose to be activated today assumed it would be delayed but now its saying end of February, you've got to be kidding. Why say bs dates to begin with.

You know I was going to write a reply earlier saying I hope that this literally legitly turns on the 21st Chicago server like I said it was when I signed up now it's saying end of February I don't know if I should trust this place or not but my buddy is a huge YouTuber I'm on a show a lot with a lot of new tech I was going to try to sound for a month and then give it a nice review and you know help promote it I don't think so anymore it's like the same old story down servers it's like of course why don't you plan for that you know everyone's on covid everyone's playing video games look at how the ps5s are look how graphics cards are I don't know if I can recommend this first of all I can't even try it so I don't know I'm pretty upset and to be honest I look at the most of the replies that the same old story I think this is brought on to we too soon for pre-orders sad

Several different sources say different things unfortunately as for activation goes. Chicago hasn’t had a single activation in two weeks, while I am a patient man as I only ordered mine on January 13th; the bot says end of January, so does this post based on the date I applied, and until today it said it would be activated today as well. Now its saying on the orders page no activation until the end of February, the lack of consistency between several of your platforms, posts, and support is a little misleading and disappointing. I am hoping I can get a more definitive answer as far as when my activation will be, for now it could be anywhere in the next month and a half, despite being led to believe it will be ready today or sometime in the next week. Hope you guys figure it out and I’m looking forward to using your service, whenever that is.
