Does the UK fall under the Paris update? 

Germany 

original activation was in Sept 21, it now shows End of March 2022 - any reason why?

 

does not seem to align with the dates shared here

@mathiass Yes

@Landerval This is the most up to date information I received from the team but I have no information for specific Shadow activations.  I’d recommend reaching out to our support team with this screenshot so they can look into this.  Thanks!

Thanks Brittaney!

Hey @Landerval ,

It would be nice if you could post here what the support team has to say... If you're going to contact them 😄 I'm in the same situation, preordered on february the 20.

Thank you!

@connorjkiller73 it’s possible that the wait time may fluctuate.  Just depends on the availability of resources in our datacenter and the number of users in queue in front of you.

Hello i purchased shadow boost howcome it says that it will be available on in 2022

Because it will be available in 2022. You gotta read the thread before posting, man.

2022? JOKE? 

2022? JOKE? 

March 2022 too…. Datacenter in France. I cancel my shadow boost 2 months ago.. what a bad decision ! Why it’s so long ? How Shadow can resist against competitors with 1 year to set up a shadow Boost ???

@TheRama 

 

here is the answer:

 

“I've gone ahead and checked in with my Activation and Web Team.

At this time, there's an issue with syncing the data to display the proper date for pre-orders on our Amsterdam data center which is why it's showing you the latest activation date instead (March 2022).

For now, the information on our Activation Forum post is correct and the one you should follow. Our Web Team is working on getting the activation date on your accounts page to show up properly. I suggest keeping an eye on our activation forum post each Monday to see if there's any update with your activation estimate.

I hope this helps clarify your question. If you have any additional comments or questions, do not hesitate to reach out to us again.

Best,“
