Absolutely typical you’re activating until the 16th in Paris and my order is on the 17th.


Guess 1 more week can’t hurt.

Cheers for all the hard work shadow peeps :)

I wait 1wk yes !

Wait I’m confuse I paid for a month of service,

 

im in NEW YORK time frame. Pennsylvania.

i want to know why I have to wait 3-4 months for they to activate my stuff. I really wanna play GTA IM NOT SURE WHATS GOING ON! And why I have to wait months for you guys to activate my account unless I’m reading it wrong. Can anyone help me out?

i paid on February 27. How long I have to wait?

You not French, i wait until october 16th so be happy thanks.

I’m not waiting 4-5 months and pay every month for a service I’m not receiving !! Just doesn’t make sense

You get charged once as a deposit then you do not pay again until the shadow pc has been activated, and the deposit goes towards the 1st month. 

Hello shadow  I'm confused my order date was January 30 2021 activision is September 30 2021. But its not on your list ?? Paris is my centre 

Hope mine comes in next week from Texas. But with the dates I got should they also do Feb. 27th to now as well? Ordered mine at midnight on Mar. 1 but if I have to wait for a week I’ll understand.

So does activation “by the end of May” mean it will guaranteed happen some time towards the end of May or does that mean it could happen much earlier, but will happen no later than May 31st?

It could happen earlier. But if so it probably won't be a month earlier. Maby a week or two. It's not guaranteed that you will be activated until the end of may. There are many people who got there shadow activation later.

3-4 months is not much compared to the waiting time in Europe. If I order now I have to wait until October or November. And the 14.99 that you paid are for the first month of shadow. If it's activated you won't be charged again until the second month.

 

Why I gotta wait till the end of December? This is unfair!!!

@SSJMadara That means your Shadow will be activated before the end of May.

@shadowgamer3355 @jacktroikonic Due to high demand in our European regions, the activation queue is much longer.   For more information, please check out our articles here: 

@Maxx4u This is for Shadow Boost, not Shadow Ultra or Shadow Infinite.  Please refer to the top of the post for that information.

thx for more of the info

I just preordered my Shadow how long will it take?

I just preordered my Shadow how long will it take?

Check what datacenter you belong in. It will give you a rough estimate on when your vm will be activated.

Just go ahead and buy yourself a PC.
This is not worth the wait.

Would there be any hope in getting it earlier because that is a very long time lmao
