Without going to much into the historical details or timeline: I can proudly announce that DOTLAN EveMaps has reached a major milestone and is providing a well known and respected service to all players of New Eden for 10 years now!
I can honestly say that the Eve Online community is one of the best communities I’ve ever been part of. From the gameplay itself, 5 awesome fanfests I’ve attended, the feedback of thousands pilots to the support of the community when I’ve upgraded my hardware and the donations I receive from time to time. But the best thing is the friendships that has been build. Friendship is the best ship Nothing comes closer!
When friends or colleagues ask me what EveMaps is all about I mostly describe it as “The Google Maps for Eve Online enriched with live data directly from the game” and I don’t think that this description isn’t to far from the reality or what do you think?
So, what’s your favorite story about DOTLAN EveMaps? Mine is still the day when Band of Brothers died/disbanded while I was sitting in the train and checking with my mobile if my server could keep up with all the twitter messages that appeared around it. Let me hear your favorite story!
A big thanks to the best eve online community ever for the last 10 years, my family, personal friends and colleagues that helped my building and running it. Let’s see where the journey will take us to.
P.S. To the german players: The pilots of the New Eden Podcast have recorded a interview with me. Happy listening.
