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 

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.

i dont understand i have to wait till december shadow if u can im trying to get activated as quick as possible and u make it quicker

Badge

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

ikr its prob not that time we will prob get it earlier but i cant wait that long

 

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.

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

Wait, im confused, if i just bought it rightnow, do i need to wait till the end of december to get my shadow? (Paris)

Yes. You have to wait till december….

I ordered mine last night and I have to wait weeks or months to use it? This can’t be a real thing. How can you charge people for something they can’t use or access? When I ordered mine, NOWHERE did it say I would have to wait weeks or months to use it. This is complete bullshit and I’m not paying for this if I can’t use it immediately because when I paid for it, that’s sure as hell like you advertised it!

haha I pre-ordered mine over a year ago.  And it still hasn't been activated, all the others who pre-ordered later have already been activated, 
and when you want money back, it doesn't work, they don't want to give it back.

It clearly states when you select your location when it would be available you can also find the status under your account by logging into shadow NOT shadow forums

 

and to answer those that are asking about payments shadow states it on there website

My suggestion is if you pre-ordered over a year ago i recommend reaching out to shadow support  

One thing I don’t understand. It says for Amsterdam that this week are activations for people who pre-ordered between 19th and 22nd November, but I pre-ordered in 30th October and still don’t get any Upgrade? I’m from Germany and pre-ordered Shadow Infinite, shouldn’t Amsterdam be my Server Cluster?

Yes from what it states on shadows server status page Amsterdam is the server for Germany have you checked the status under your account? if not i recommend checking they may have delayed your upgrade i would also recommend reaching out to shadow support

No, pre orders ( ultra / infinite ) are on Graveland servers….Not Amsterdam like shadow boost orders…

did u read the news ? They got a new investor, I think it takes 1-2 months for now, for pre orders from Germany. 
 

if they even got the resources right now.

that’s the reason why they didint communicate earlier, they wanna give u that feeling you are just before activating your machine.

 


 

yeeees! Amsterdam next week, next week, next week, gogogo (order 6.12.20) :grimacing::grimacing::grimacing::grimacing::grimacing:

My mistake


 

 

 

In Discord someone said Pre-orders for Infinite are on PARIS Cluster and I also noticed that I sometimes had a french IP there (very rare and only for a few time, normally always German IP). Is that maybe the reason? On Paris servers my turn is end of April, what would explain why I’m not activated yet. Asked the Shadow support, but nobody replied until now.
