Hey #TeamShadow,

This week’s activations are rolling along at a steady pace across all datacenters. We do not have activations scheduled in the AMS datacenter this week due to high peak usage.

 

Thank you for your patience as you wait for your Shadow! While you wait for activation, we hope you take a moment to browse the forum to see what else the community is buzzing about. A good place to start is always with introducing yourself to #TeamShadow :)

another week without an activation in amsterdam :cry:

Userlevel 1

Damn. Gotta wait another week over here in Chicago. Probably 1 more week.

It seems the delay last night beared fruit thank you Brittaney for taking that step to assure us on the information though it does sadden me that not all my fellow members will get their equipment in as well and it is still a maybe at least there is more information than the blanket statements from previous weeks.the added information on what we should be looking for towards activation is an added plus

Ayy finally texas

For anyone who pre-ordered Shadow PC from New York, how long was the wait time for the activation to arrive?

Does anyone have preordered the 12th september 2020 in Paris ? Do you think we got it in 2 weeks ?

No Activation this week (Amsterdam) too?… Great!

@BrittaneyFromShadow I notice how most states are taking awile to activate CPUs,I feel there should be a way to pay for faster activation like how you can pay for faster shipping on Amazon ®️.I would be willing to pay up to 16$, but 7$ would be reasonable to have my shadow ready by February, 3. I feel this could help with the issue a little and be a way to get extra money for the business.(please consider.)

Yay hopefully Chicago stays on a good pace and I won’t have to wait until the end of Febuary 

Wow how sad… Shadow lied to us. Last week we were told that amsterdam will get new activations until the end of January. I am disappointed

Well it’s not exactly fair to people who don’t/won’t pay for that. Right now they work in a queue but if they adopt this method and large amounts of people buy it, How is it fair to those who now have to wait even longer if they didn’t pay extra.

Good point! Crying people on every new update!

I just have a question my activation day is tomorrow and I see all this stuff about waiting longer times my activation day hasn’t changed so should I still be expecting it tomorrow? I am in Chicago, Illinois

Same question. Says we should have gotten an email if we were being delayed, and I haven’t received one and account page says activation by tomorrow. This list makes it look like I wont be activated though.

@BrittaneyFromShadow 

Is anybody here who preordered Shadow Ultra from Germany? If preordered 06.12.2019 in Germany (For now I have Shadow Boost) and how I understood, my Shadow would be in Gravelines. When can I expect to be activated?

This is for Boost activation. We don’t get Infinite or Ultra updates here, sorry. 

This is second week I haven't seen any UK lists, I'm having to wait 6 months for activation anyways can we at least get updates?

@PickleRick @oTsRookie I have no information about specific Shadows.  This is the information I receive from the activation teams.

@Doobrie UK users are supported in our Paris datacenter.  Look under the Paris section’s english translation.

 @BrittaneyFromShadow  Ahh I see it's been merged 👍 still any news of thing moving faster? 6 months is a pretty excessive wait time....

Will the date on my account page show the accurate activation date?

I haven’t received an email, and I am due for the 28th and it says activation by the end of February for my time span. Should I be expecting my shadow activation tomarrow?

Edit: (Closest data center is Santa Clara)

Hope I get mine twomorrow as it still says I am.

6 months of waiting are very long for a company that wants to be the best. Maybe even unique.
