Hi,

first of all thanks for your work. Just a quick question: I ordered on 21th December 2020 and my profile states that my shadow will be activated on 29th April 2021. I read in your post that for this week there will be no activations in Amsterdam. Will my activation therefore be delayed? @Brittaney from Shadow  I fully understand if my question cant be answered here.

Thank you.

Hey there,
I preordered the Shadow Ultra upgrade on 29th Oktober of 2019. If I read the sheet above correctly that would mean it was already upgraded for Amsterdam. But my account is still running on the Shadow Boost option. Am I missing something here?

Same here, preordered infinite from Paris on 19th of November 2019. Should have been activated last week. But still no news. Any help would be appreciated. 

Is this acceptable ? Pre-order the the 30th of October 2019… yes 2019… how is this possible ? Really don’t understand...

 

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 on Oculus Quest 2  since my PC doesn’t support some and I want to play games with high graphics. Please, I need my Shadow as fast as possible.

I have a bit of a question. I pre-ordered on March 2nd. I see that it says that my time will be delayed, and I received an email 6 days AFTER I should of been activated, that it was delayed to THE END OF JULY. Every day since I got that email, I have been checking on the bot, it says I should get it by the end of April.

I need to be informed if it will be at the end of April or the end of July, because I am only being patient because I see potential in me using this cloud service. If the wait time is going to be that long, then that is stupid. I would like to mention, I was told that I should of looked at the time I was told before I pre-ordered. I should of been activated on March 16th going by that. This is outrageous to wait this long after I was told, BEFORE I PRE-ORDERED that I would receive it in 2 weeks.

I got today an e-mail that its delayed. 

Why so Late ????

Why is it so difficult for everyone to realize they aren’t going to do any activations until they have a buyer? These threads get flooded every week with people not understanding this. You can’t really declare bankruptcy and then turn around to keep growing your business using your own funds. You will all be waiting a very, very long time to get your Shadow (myself included).

Don´t get me wrong, because i totally understand your point. But writing” you´re in time with the schedule” an then announce there will be no activitation this week (and getting an email about the delayed activiation) is like telling your kids dinner is ready and while there at the table you tell them you need another 15 minutes for being ready to serve. Hope you got my point;) have a nice evening.

Your point is understood, but it doesn’t hold on any water to me.

“Hey, dinner will be ready at 5 but we have no food in the house, the oven is broken, and no one delivers food here.”

The kids should have the critical thinking skills to recognize something is wrong with this sitiation.

Hope you have a nice evening, too.

See, the issue is, is that it says that Paris’ activation will be November 22 - November 27. That means they are doing activations but are being outrageously slow. Mine, if I am correct, should be next week based off of their schedule, and if that is the case and it is activated, then great!

Also. You point out that they are not going to do any activations until they have a buyer. While I was pre-ordering, the website gave me false information saying that I would get activated in 2 weeks. Then AFTER I was suppose to be activated, THEY CHANGED MY TIME FOR ACTIVATION!

I disagree. If there's no possibility of an activation in time, telling otherwise is shady at best, if not plainly deceitful.

Got an email, too. No activation, no new date. This sucks.

Activation supposedly on April 29th but got delayed…

The question is… where’s the new date since judging by what you guys said ‘’the activations are currently on schedule’’?

We must hope that shadow will be sold quickly to another investors who will restore efficiency. 1 year to have a Shadow Boost ?  What kind of planet do you live in Shadow ? 

 

But it’s the only cloud computing service for gamers where you can install all your games...
