With gratitude and appreciation, the EVE Online community bids farewell to EVEPraisal.com, a revered asset valuation tool. Over the years, the website played an indispensable role in the game’s bustling economy. By providing players with accurate market data, it helped them to value their in-game assets. However, the time has come for Sudodragon (EVEpraisal’s sole developer) to pull the plug on this beloved project, as outlined in a heartfelt message to all users.
Reflecting on the significance of EVEPraisal in a statement that is now available on the site, Sudo is proud of the positive impact it had on the EVE Online experience. It proved a trusted ally for traders and industrialists, shaped player behaviour on a scale not often seen, and enhanced gameplay across New Eden’s vast trade markets.
The decision to shut down EVEPraisal was not an easy one. It stemmed from a recent ESI IP ban imposed by CCP on the developer’s IP address. This disruption of access to market data through EVE Online’s ESI API prompted the developer to contemplate the way forward. As the developer is no longer actively playing the game, maintaining the website has become disconnected from their current interests.
Despite EVEPraisal’s closure, the developer expressed appreciation for the community’s unwavering support over the years. Their contributions and enthusiasm have enriched EVE Online, a game cherished by countless players.
To those who have grown fond of the tool and relied on its services, the developer offers a silver lining. The source code is now available on GitHub for others to use and modify.
As the players embrace the future without EVEPraisal, the developer hopes they will continue their journeys in EVE Online guided by the same resilience and spirit that characterizes this incredible community. With the customary farewell message in EVE Online, the developer extends their farewell message to all players with the words, “o7, fly safe.”
