When I preordered last week, I was told I’d be activated by this Thursday, but now my account is showing that my estimate has been moved forward to November 26th (which now makes sense in light of this post).

Should I adjust my expectations, or do I happen to be one of the last in the slate of activations this week? I don’t want to sound entitled (I know many others have had to wait and will have to wait far longer for activations), but I’m very disappointed in the adjustment of my account’s activation window, as well as the the lack of any notification to me of the change.

Yup, seeing Texas live within 24 hours still stings... Can Paris not be accelerated?

Had the same issue, I asked why on discord and a moderator said it's just a display issue and the team is working on it. So you should expect it on Thursday according to the moderator.

Lol don't worry, the first time I saw that I got sad. But the moderators I talked to on discord said it's just a display issue and you should still expect your Shadow PC to be activated by Thursday.

Not only that, I heard that you should think the activation date as the longest date you'll receive your PC. So basically November 26th is the date you'll receive your Shadow if something happened to it or the database.

really? January for new york? you've got to be kidding me.

I pre-ordered Shadow on October 24th. Are there any hopes that activation will happen before January 2021? :grimacing:

I hope so. I contacted support the other day and they said that January was the maximum wait. So theoretically you could receive an account activation before then.

I ordered early morning on the 23rd for Chicago when should I expect mine I fall right in between the time frames of course

By Looking at this Post I’m pretty sure you should get it this week hopefully unless something unexpected happens.

I ordered the same day and the same data centers. We should except to get it activated by Thursday of this week even though it says that it will be activated by November 26th which was a display issue.

So if i payed today when i can play? Tomorrow?

I’m from new mexico, texas

Well since Texas is live, you should expect it within 24 hours.

Sadly, I ordered yesterday and Chicago was listed as “24 hours”. Today, it’s listed as November 26th if I order on the 23rd or later. 😞 I’m hoping it’ll be sooner, but still makes me sad since one of the things that specifically made me take the plunge was that my data center had a 24-hour turnaround. I understand how tech goes, so, I get it, still… the sadness.

Jesus Christ, I need to wait 6 months for activation 😮 in the past it took me maybe a week or two.
I should have kept the subscription.

It's a display issue. Don't worry you will be getting it activated on Thursday. Because of how many orders that are being activated on November, it caused an display issue for the people in Chicago who pre-ordered the Shadow Boost recently. I have the same issue but the moderators on discord said it's just a display issue.

Same thing happened to me. I preordered because it said that it would be connected by the the end of the month on October 29th then as soon as I made payment and logged in it changed to November 26th. 

I'm in Las Vegas, Nevada. Am I really going to have to wait until November 26 to be activated??

I have to wait 6 months? this cant be right

Yeah when I pre-ordered it said good news, activation within 24 hours! .. but my account page shows end of November once they got my billing info.. 

Keep in mind also I’ve been a shadow customer for a few years now.. I was merely signing back up.. this is a bit ridiculous ..  I may just cancel my order

This seems a mess.. even their welcome letter is broken .. “HI {recipient},” 

They used to be amazing.. I have no idea what changed.. 

If i ordered the 23rd should i expect mine today,tmrw, or next week i ordered mine when it said i would get it by thursday

Moderators on discord said it's just a display issue so we should expect it today.
