I ordered May 18th NY DC, when can I realistically expect to be activated? Is early July anything before the 15th?

You may be activated within the next 24-48 hours (estimate) from what i’m seeing from others with the NY DC. I preordered on the 20th so I’ll probably have to wait a until thursday or even next week.

I ordered my Shadow Boost on July 6 2020 but when will I get it?

I don’t see how that’s possible is Shadow is estimating it will only get to orders of May 14th and earlier by next week

I just wish Shadow staff would be honest with us, how is 2 weeks from now early July?

Not sure about the English site, but in the German version of the site they don't use the term early anywhere just available in July which means the whole month.

 

This statement in fact is not wrong just not an optimal statement as for all other cases one come across available in July usually means you get your order within the first few days. 

 

 

Maybe it is possible to set up a personal update to the users who are still pending in the activation ? Like a estimated date of activation ? 

 

There are a lot of users, counting down, estimating a time of activation but nobody knows how many activation’s there are in front of him, or what the speed of actviaton’s is in a specif database. I can understand this is frustrating because you allready payed for the first month. personally i think, if you pay for something, you can ask something in return, and i believe giving clearence to the users is the least you can do in a pending situation. 

 

im may 15th for new york, im finally almost there!

Jesus. This is taking longer than It should. I still don’t know why they only activate on certain days. I purchased on June 1 and according to how everything is going then I can expect to be activated in another month? I think they should hire more people or something. I don’t even know if i can cancel when I signed up for the whole year. If i can then I’ll just stay with paperspace.

whoops, misread that section thinking the 14th is currently what they’re on.

Based on the current trend, likely next week. However, we’ll confirm that in next week’s update when we provide the new “Target by next activation update” for Amsterdam

Any information on when an order for 1st of April in Amsterdam will be activated?

I think previous weeks update thread did have the activation they were currently on, and this week it was changed to where they hope to be. I think this was a bad decision, it confuses people that have been following along and is less transparent, because now we have no idea what the actual activation rate is.

 

I have just about had it with Shadow, I’m starting to seriously consider just buying a video card and using my own system. I’m not real confident with how Shadow is going to work and the level of support anyone is going to get if Shadow can’t be transparent and honest about activation times to start with. I’m also seeing a lot of existing users complaining about the lack of storage and the pricing and availability of the storage upgrade. I’m not looking forward to getting activated and then having another months long wait for storage and another additional cost. I like the concept of unlimited cloud gaming, but I feel like the limited storage and price of upgrading are too high for me and I might be better off just upgrading my PC and trying moonlight.

If it’s a Shadow Boost pre-order on April 1st in Amsterdam, it should have been activated by now and I recommend the person contact support for them to investigate.

I preorderd May 8th from the NY datacenter and I still haven’t been activated. Is that normal, or should I contact support as well?

For all the people who want like by the minute updates on when you'll be activated, wouldn't you rather those resources go to getting people activated as quickly as possible instead of just communicating about it?

All those words and you still didn’t actually say anything about when our shadows will Be activated you just keep telling us your working hard we get thaat but people are still waiting and you working hard doesn’t really mean much to us 

I ordered July 3rd when am i expected round about to get updated?

so I wasn’t the only one who thought it said that last week was what day they were **currently** on, and not what they’re going to be on next week, hm.

 

 

Same here, i thought the same thing. 

I pre-ordered on June 24th 2020 and I still haven't received SHADOW

Hi, so a few quick questions. First up, because of the slight delay (due to the storage issues etc.) if I had ordered June 22nd, it would most likely come after the July 23rd date right? Second, due to the delay, I may be back in school (in California) by then. Is there a way to switch my server after I head back to school? Right now I am home in NY, so the NY server. But late August I’ll be heading back to Ca for college, so I was just wondering if I can change my server depending on where I am and / or what the process will be like when I have to switch back. Thanks!
