I’ve been gone for a while, and just recently getting back in. I’m mostly just doing day trading while I read about updates, until I can really dive back in. Anyways, back during Odyssey the archaeology and hacking markets experienced a total crash. Prior to that I was running lowsec exploration out of a recon, and occasionally mixing it up with some hidden plexes. After Odyssey, I was forced to go deeper into null to maintain profits, and even that was beginning to tank really hard. It reached the point where I had to take to a break from my preferred playstyle because it just wasn’t cutting it. I figured I’d hop back into it after a few months, but then life got in the way.
So how is exploration these days? Is it still a dead end as far as profitability? Are complexes still good? What kind of hourly income are you looking at? Basically, should I bother with it, or look into other avenues?
