Are the infinity-pre-orders (in GRAVELINES) complete suspended?

"I have an active Shadow Boost subscription and a pre-order for Shadow Ultra or Shadow Infinite in Europe. What will happen?

For now, preorders are maintained. The arrival of a new investor will allow us to have more clarity on the deployment plan. As a reminder, preordering a Shadow Ultra or Shadow Infinite is free, and you can always cancel via your account page."

Same here! I pre-ordered on the 12th of March for a 29th of March 2021 activation, only to find my activation date now shows 29th March 2022.

It always would have been 2022.. It has been on the order page for a few weeks now. 

Must have read it wrong… wishful thinking, perhaps. What an anti-climax today was! :)

I did the same.. ordered on the 28th March and it said 29th of March for activation.. thought to myself that's not bad at all... Then today 30th was wondering why it's not activated yet then notice it said 29th March 2022!!¡¡ Lol by that stage a GTX 1080 will be old school.. 

Shadow's motto shouldn't be "Your PC is in the cloud" but more like "Your PC will be in the cloud"

Guys this is deceitful, I ordered thinking I would get same day activation, not same day in one year!

If it was written 2022 I would not have ordered it, I am sure that it was not written!

There is a difference between a few hours to setup up my account and building a new datacenter for it.

It says clearly when you order what your activation date estimate is, if you don't want to wait just request a refund. No further payments are taken until you are activated.

This is such a damn scam company for real, ive been waiting for months for this. and they keep pushing it back….its a bloody 1080 card. and by the time its activated it will be too shit to even play the games, cause of all the other way way newer cards. come on and get ur bloody act together for real! either put newer cards in the data centers or QUIT stalling and put those centers up and give people what they paid for

I mean, I would guess they'd upgrade with time.

 

 

 

 

I hope.

At this point, I will be surprised to see activations restart in those datacenters before either Shadow finds a new investor or they close the doors entirely.

 

It is, honestly, more than a little irresponsible that they are taking new orders at all at this point.

When I first got into Shadow, it was up and running same day. I’m definitely not waiting 6+ months now and I pray no one else does. That’s ridiculous and unnecessary. Wish I hadn’t put my card info in this site.

The current estimated time of activation is about a year. So you must have read it wrong while ordering, your activation will probably be in March 2022

Its too small of a company to handle all these requests… They shouldn’t be taking so many requests they’re so backlogged its gonna be whole years before we even remotely see these VM’s. Honestly guys, do like i have. Invest in Luna or GeForce NOW.

Luna and Geforce is just not the same, that's why it worth the wait. I don't know why all of you are ranting that it takes you too long. Then go get your money back. It is not like that your money isnt just a couple of clicks away instead of telling everyone how inpatient yall are.

To the peeps who really think they got tricked and it said march 2021, next time just read and don't let your excitement get over you. It says clearly that you have to wait for a year.

 QUIT stalling and put those centers up and give people what they paid for

 

You haven’t paid anything yet, bruh.

Dude honestly, It’s not worth buying, and its not worth refunding on it, i only had to give up about 7 bucks due to a promo code. But that isn’t the point. The point is that this is taking unbelievably long, who in the several layers of fuck, wants to wait almost a whole year to use this? Think about it man, in that long with a decent paying job, you could already have a pretty high end PC, and a nice setup. It’s like an impulse buy, but they don’t TELL us the wait before we fucking buy it. Its actually pretty deceiving, so you’ve impulse bought this product, and now you have to wait almost 8-9 months, or if you’re like some of these unfortunate people and have to wait a whole long year. You lose the interest, and the whole point of the impulse is just gone. So please before you try to play the Holier than Thou card, and say how we’re impatient, and that it says “we clearly have to wait a year” Do your math man.

Lostoz, you can’t be this dense, It didn’t clearly say we have to wait a year TILL AFTER we paid for it. Also our money is a few clicks away? They make you wait an entire business week for your refund. So you’d basically be waiting all that time for 11 measly dollars. Which isn’t even my case, I spent a tiny 7 dollars. You’ve completely undermined the point with just two shitty responses. The point is that it takes almost a whole year to go to a building and then setup parts. Which its not really any super high end constantly in demand parts. a 1070 can be bought just about anywhere, and are constantly in stock, Same with the rest of the parts. This was mostly an impulse buy, and probably for a lot of people because. WHO WOULDN’T WANT to emulate an entire PC completely over the internet? Think about impulse buys, you buy them at the speed of sound, and then later on you just lose interest. That is exactly the same case here, except you don’t get to use the product at all, you just wait. You wait and get even more pissed off about it than the last day. Also only march 2021? Dude some people have to wait a whole fucking year. Climb off your high horse and get down here with the rest of us.
