My Shadow Boost was activated today morning (April 6th) with a delay of exactly 1 month.

I ordered on December 6th.

The original activation day was March 6th.

Relating to the “sorry”-email I was expecting an activation in the end of April. I´m very happy. This information is for those, who aren´t sure if the estimated activations will be in time. Or if the “sorry”-email is lie or not. 

The only thing I´m worry about is the current financial situation of Blade. I really hope that I will use Shadow for a long time. Furthermore I really hope that the waiting time for you guys will be reduced to 3-4 months maximum. Waiting a year or more is unbelievable...

 

So the Paris activations have gone past my order date now:

Ordered on

01 November 2019

 

Are the dates printed on here made up and I’ve just wasted a year and a half waiting for nothing?

@Sambo We do not have any Shadow Boost orders left from 2019.  If you’re talking about Shadow Ultra or Infinite for the EU, please check here in the FAQ section.

So, I now have finally got my Shadow. 

I too got the email for that the activation may be end of April, but here I am: I've got postponed only 2 weeks.

I think Shadow now finally has their route back in sight, with 5 days worth of activation per week.

Hope you continue that and many others also get their shadow soon.

@Brittaney from Shadow FAQ does not refer to Shadow ultra activation schedule. Can you be more specific when you refer to the link where we could find answers please?

Unless you refer to “For now, preorders are maintained. The arrival of a new investor will allow us to have more clarity on the deployment plan” which is not exactly a schedule but just another excuse ?

thx

Hi there,

 

I ordered a Shadow Ultra on 29 october 2019 and you’re activating 7 november - 10 november this week for Paris. Have i been forgotten ? :joy:

Thanks for your work !

Cheers

hello,

I’m in the same situation, I pre ordered my Shadow Infinite on October 30, 2019 and there is no evolution on my account… I’m waiting, but it’s starting to tak a long time now…. 

Thanks.

Regards,

@Philion @Alésiæ @bardil We don’t have an activation schedule for EU Ultra or Infinite as we are waiting for the new buyer.  Please refer to the blog post and this post here: 

 

oOo ok .. It’s a really bad news …
Hope for you you’re gonna find a solution for all of this. I feel like I'm wasting my time, the purchase of pc would me bore profitable and faster :/

@Brittaney from Shadow I ordered on December 1. and yet still not activated, even in Amsterdam stands “All Pre-Orders until 9. December are activated, could anyone please explain me this?

Wow, why does it take so long to activate your account? I just ordered mine. On April 7th. Just by looking at the replies. I already have a bad feeling about this :/

I can tell you from my experience it isn’t bad. I’ve been using Shadow for a few months now and haven’t had any issues. Usually my Shadow is activated a LOT sooner than the estimated time. You have to keep in mind it is supply and demand and they only have so many slots in a datacenter, but I can assure you it is very worth the wait.

Okay, thanks for your time and have a nice evening. :)

Same here mate... Pré ordered 29 of October 2019, and guess what... Freaking nothing.

Contact the support, they tell you they can't read the future…

Well I'm able to read the past, and most of us are paying to wait the activation, and by reading the present I can tell that most of us are getting sick of the situation…

I mean since I ve subscribed to shadow I could have bought at least a beast of a gaming pc.

 

For me I ll wait a bit more then if nothing happens... Well I ll sell my account as they're not even able to have enough boost for everyone…

So much

@Brittaney from Shadow I ordered on December 1. and yet still not activated, even in Amsterdam stands “All Pre-Orders until 9. December are activated, could anyone please explain me this?

I explain you.

Full of awesome promises but nothing.

Ask the support, they'll tell you it's cuz of covid, and that they can not read the future…

Best answer ever for a monthly fee. 

@Philion @Alésiæ @bardil We don’t have an activation schedule for EU Ultra or Infinite as we are waiting for the new buyer.  Please refer to the blog post and this post here: 

 

Does not mean anything.

So what if a new buyer does not come…

Are all getting our money back from waiting more than a year and a half?

Cuz afterwards I m 100 percent sure, buying a gamer beast would have cost me less than shadow.

 

Hi, I pre-ordered a boost(temporary) and ultra in february 2020 and it seems that my order had an issue! Could you please help me?
