Hi Shadow,

I’m a Legacy Shadow user (before boost offer) and I pre-ordered a Shadow Ultra in 2nd november 2019.
Just a little question : in this thread when you write for Paris datacenter, “activations cette semaine : 16 novembre - 22 novembre” you mean november 2019 ? :disappointed_relieved:

Thanks by advance for answer !

Peace !

@PYC This is for Shadow Boost activations.  Please read this forum article for Shadow Ultra and Infinite: 

 

hello I just pre-ordered a shadow boost and I would like to know if I will really have to wait 1 year before I can take advantage of my service thank you

@Tpercey Sorry, I don’t receive information for specific Shadow activations.  It’s possible that you may receive your Shadow earlier but it depends on the resources available in the datacenter as well as the people in line ahead of you.

Are there not enough machines in the U.S. data centers? I’ve noticed that there haven’t been any activations for a few weeks. Or maybe because of the buyer situation things are on hold?

@PYC This is for Shadow Boost activations.  Please read this forum article for Shadow Ultra and Infinite: 

 


I dont wanna be rude, but you do realize that your link is still 8 month (!) old? They is nothing in it. We only get information “Beginning of 2021 which for me is Q1”.

We are nearly mid Q2 which is an absolut bad customer experience. If i even ask via Ticket regarding any updates i only get as response “We didnt heard anything from that team” so maybe ask them? What is the problem with the delay?

Having a delay (which is also huge by now...) is one thing, but not giving any updates is different.

So i would really appreciate it if you give some information to the responsible team, to update the thread for Shadiw Infinite…

Regards

@Driblex While the original post itself is old, you’ll see that we actually updated it on April 7th, 2021.  The first line of the post is “last updated on Wednesday, April 7th, 2021 in reference to A new beginning in sight for Shadow.”

Other than the information shared there, we do not have any further information to give until the new buyer is in place.  

Hello! I would like to know when my Shadow Boost is coming. I really don’t want to wait very long so I hope I get it fast. I am in Romania and I think the datacenter I chose is Paris (If you can check and tell me, Paris is the most nearest to me)


I need it fast because I really want to play PC VR games since my PC doesn’t support some and want to play games with high graphics.
