Thnx!

These activations for the Paris data centre is that “all” tiers or just boost ?? 

Covid-19 has messed things up quite considerably but allowing people to hand over their money for the promise of a cloud pc in 8 - 10 months is very bad business practice.

Aww that’s cute, 8-10 months…….I know its the wrong place but I pre ordered my shadow infinite in October……………………………...2019, and still don’t even have a hint of when its happening. It’ll come when it comes and everyone being so hurt by it just comes of as petulant and entitled (not picking on you, just saying)I’m pretty sure somewhere it said that there might be long activation times, that people agreed to.

Hmm. Shadow actually activated me early. Now I hope some of my AMS and UK users can get theirs early too.

Didn’t think for one second that you was picking on me! Everyone has a choice of whether to wait for it or to cancel.

I think shadow is excellent value for money so even though I think I'll cancel sometimes I simply wouldn’t as nothing comes close to them for the price.

Just thinking that if it’s true and all the delays are due to keeping their current customers happy and to make sure they all have the best experience then will this come at a cost for losing future customers.

I just wanted to make it clear, people are too quick to pick a fight these days, rather than discuss :P 

Yes it probably will, I just get really irked by all the "I ordered mine 5 weeks ago, where is it?" Posts I've been with shadow for over 3 years now and when the opportunity to upgrade came around I was super excited...now I'm waiting out of pure stubbornness...I've waited 15 months so far, what's a few more. I don't believe for one second that I'm getting my infinite "beginning 2021" but my current configuration works so what the hell :)

Thanks for the activation on Amsterdam Server today!!!

 

Order Date: 24.10.2020

P.S.: I didn't reseave an E-mail. I just tried the App and it worked! For all those who are waiting : Try it out

 

I wish you luck!

 

@herrderflammen87 @Florisse It’s due to the increase of users in the datacenter who are actively using their Shadow.  We want to ensure that current users are satisfied with their experience before activating new users by making sure that the systems are stable and that we are not overheating servers or exceeding capacity.

That’s a statement I can understand. So why aren’t you communicating this directly in the post?  High-Peak rates and queues do mean a complete other thing to me...

Yeah, I think most people would rather wait, if that meant once they do get in they won’t have to worry about having trouble connecting.  My shadow always connects, always boots, always works just fine.

I sure wouldn’t want that to change because they were over-activating.

 

The region you’re in really does seem to change how quickly you get activated.  In the US it’s like 2-3 weeks, and upon activation I was able to upgrade to Ultra right away.  (I think I’m using the Chicago data center, but it might be Texas)

Order Date: 28.10.2020

I can not Login. I have to wait..

My order got pushed back 1 month.  I would consider waiting a little longer, and I know how excited we are getting our Shadow PCs.  For them on concentrating on current users to ensure they get the best performance is a “GOOD” thing.  This means when you do get yours, you can be happy to know that they got your back and will not degrade your experience just to get new customers.

 

I hope there are lessons learned on these delay issues that they will iron out in the future.  I can only hope for success for Shadow Tech because their setup/services are the only way I can enjoy a decent PC that I can use anytime and anywhere.

 

Cheers!

I ordered shadow infinite in decembwr 2019 and its still not activatedd whyyyyyyyyyytt

So, happy news guys. My shadow in Amsterdam just got activated. I didn’t even notice it and just logged in to see what the news say. My order date was around 29th of october 2020, so there’s hope for y’all. I’m still very unsatisfied with the long waiting time, but I’ll give credit where credit is due. At least it eventually gets delivered. So time to see how the Amsterdam instance performs in relation to the Texas one. Have a good one guys.

Lowkey finna get made because it been a week bruh I just wanted to play warzone I feel like I’m just getting scam😂 I pre ordered feb 1 when do I get my email
