@RyanFromShadow Thanks for the update, I hope you had a nice long weekend! Just to point out that this is not pinned, I almost missed the good news of the Paris server getting up to 7 days worth of activations this week! 

All the best!

Yeah same here 🙂 Never know, could end up finishing the current activations quick enough to do a few of 21st/22nd. If not looks like we will be activated next week.

D'après ce que je comprends, les activations de Shadow Infinite et Ultra ont été suspendues jusqu'à l'année prochaine, je suppose en raison de covid.

I've been waiting for my shadow more than 5 days. I have been feeling disappointed with the wait. I literally purchase it last weekend and still nothing. There is no customer support online. I can't even email or anything . However help out because I do wanna use shadow. My email is <redacted due to personal information>        ----- please help out .

More than 5 full days? Ugh, that’s tough. Don’t be too disappointed, you will only have to wait 3-4 more months to get finally activated.

Your account ‘Order Status’ should show you when your shadow activation estimate is - it’s probably in a couple months.

@Warcraftproz Hey!  Just a reminder, please do not post personal information on public channels for your own safety.  You can figure out which data center you’re located in using this link here.  Once you know which data center you’re in, you can use Ryan’s post to determine when your Shadow will be activated.

I’ve been waiting for my Shadow Ultra since 20th of December 2019 - any updates on that? You keep saying activation is going as planned, but I doubt the plan was to activate my Ultra 1 year after the order?

If you actually manage to activate it at all at any point in time, it will already be 2 year old hardware by that time, just like the Boost is now...

It’s kind of stupid that I ordered august 3rd and someone could order today and get it a month before me… shadow really need to get their shit together.

Does anyne know when in Oct, the servers will go live in London ?

Encore 5 mois a attendre  :/

@MrPesto Your Shadow’s activation highly depends on the resources available at the data center.  We aren’t trying to block anyone from getting their Shadow at a later time than promised upon check-out.

@evan_draco If you’re in London, your Shadow will be activated in the Paris data center.  There are people currently using Shadow there now, the activation is for your own specific Shadow as it takes time for our team to go through the orders and assign users their GPU, CPU, storage, etc.

@Rotten boi Our team’s doing the best to activate everyone.  We had an increase in demand and our team is already working as hard as they can as they don’t want to activate anyone later than promised.
