Implement importing of Evolve game-tracking data

 I have been an avid supporter and user of Echobit's Evolve game-tracking software ever since 2011. Around the time xfire was showing signs of dying. Jumping ship was easy and straight forward when xfire's inevitable demise came to pass due to Evolve's ability (and Raptr's) to import xfire hours.

Now here's the problem. Evolve is now showing the same signs as xfire did. Devs are no longer active. Parts of the service have stopped working and nobody is saying anything about it on the forums. The forums themselves are a wasteland of silence or bot spam. Switching to Raptr would be a no-brainer if I were able to transfer my gaming time over in a similar way to how it used to work with xfire.

But if I were to be required to start from scratch, without being able to salvage anything, I'd rather just give up tracking altogether. I've been doing it for years and it has helped me land a job in gaming (QA Testing) because I used it as proof in my CVs.
Far be it for the Raptr team to even bother with implementing such a transfer for a lonely anonymous user on the internet. But if you take into account that if you do in fact do this, you will be attracting a quite massive number of disgruntled Evolve users to your service, you could see how this would benefit Raptr as a whole. Bellow you can find Evolve's website, and a link to a (my) gaming profile that might help you guys figure out if there is a way to import data. I will be linking this topic over on the evolve forums as well in hope it gets seen by the right people.

I find myself in the same exact situation. For how much i loved evolve it's dying and i would switch if i could import my data

isn't evolve 2.0 at a beta state? Meh, If evolve is dying Rapre is even worse. Overwolf is the best choice atm.
