What are you doing there? 7 months for a simple activation? Like, are you building a custom pc for me or what takes so much time there, those cloud services are getting more and more customers in the future, think of a new way to activate a new pc...ridiculous 

unfortunately my hope in this company left ages ago, i used to have a activated boost account that I ended up cancelling as it could not keep up with the most modern games at decent FPS/Graphics, I have had a shadow infinite on pre-order with them since November 2019 and at first they were communicating every week about activations and now its been over 5-6 months of nothing at all, it states my pre-order is still active and will be activated beginning of 2021 but look at how long its taking for them to activate the standard boost servers then I have no hope, just glad I wont get charged till they actually activate it, if or when that happens

I been waiting since Oct 31 2019….. :(((((((((((((((((((((((((((

I keep looking for alternatives to see what is out there which is more out of curiosity and something to fill the gap for a few months and it seems that nothing comes close to shadow.tech , keep waiting guys I am sure it will be worth it in the end, (UK, August activation)

C'est quoi ce foutage de gueule, je vais devoir attendre 7 mois ?!?

Ouais mdr je viens de voir ça j’ai annulé la précommande direct. Je savais pas que ça existait des entreprises qui mettent 8 mois à livrer un produit dématérialiser.

Il ferait mieux de sous traité à AWS.

Toujours pas de news à propos des précommandes ULTRA et INFINITE de 2019. 

Pas un petit mot en 6 mois.

 

On attend tous le 31 Mars, date à laquelle ils communiqueront sur le prochain retard.
 

Merci Shadow

Dear admins,

can you please give some information regarding the short- and long-term solutions for this situation?

  1. What are you doing right now, to avoid further “no activation this week in AMS”-statements? - Are you already upgrading the AMS-servers? Or are you just waiting and hope that your “high-peak”-problem will disapear? 
  1. What are you going to do in future to make it possible to upgrade quickly from Boost to Ultimate, that customers don´t have to wait still more than a year? 

Can you please be more transparent in your communication with your customers, then we could be more understanding. 

Thanks!

For now to fill the time gap i purchased NVIDIA GeForce NOW for six months for $24.95+ and so far so good playing all my games on max settings no lag
