Exploration isn’t about isk per hour, it’s gains are spread more…days of nothing sites, lots of carbon.
then all of a sudden, it’s raining isk in your wallet.
For me exploration is about seeing the EVE world in a different way, the escalations are fun, and often yield some loot that i’ll either sell or use,
and I agree with what everyone else is saying, get good at wormhole exploration, they spawn null sites, and can be lots of fun. I took my astero on a journey in wormholes, jumping from hole to hole, cloaking my way around, until i popped out with several billions in the hold,
plus you build the skill of Dscanning which pays off in other elements of the game.
