Hey #TeamShadow,
 

Welcome to this week’s activation update!

Previously, we announced a delay for New York pre-orders before July 16th. This week we’ve confirmed the dates for which users will be activated this week, and which will receive an email from us by the end of the week regarding the delay.

For Amsterdam, Chicago, and Texas users promised July 2020 for activation will unfortunately be delayed to August 2020, excluding those that will be activated this week. Please review your specific datacenter’s information below to determine if your Shadow’s activation will be delayed, as volume of activations varies by datacenter. Users impacted by the delays will receive an email from us confirming the new expected delivery date similar to New York.

 

Thank you for your continued patience as you wait to get your hands on Shadow Boost.
 

As a reminder:
-We activate Monday through Thursday

-Beginning at 8am local time each day for each datacenter

Ordered Amsterdam on June 20th, says available on July.. hoping for this week :cry:

Amsterdam, June 14th. Still waiting. Looking for next, rather the week after next.

Look at the ETA they give now, delayed to August, and given that they activated June 1st last Monday and plan to activate up to June 5th today, you will probably wait at least 2-3 more weeks.

Ordered 4th May UK so Paris server, I’m estimating I should get activated this Friday or early next week. Is that what I can expect or will I be waiting longer?

I was looking at my time of activation.

I am in the NY data center and it is telling me I will be activated in September of 2022 is anyone having this issue?

Ordered June 7th, currently August 3rd and still waiting for NY Datacenter. I’ll post when I get activated to help others with their estimations.

 

Also, we need a Boston Data Center!
