Sudden lack of relic and data sites?

I just spent several hours rapidly visiting about 40 systems, scanning down every cosmic signature and did not hit a single relic or data site. Has anyone else noticed this? Did something change with the update? I usually average 1 or 2 sites for every 5-10 systems.

Yeah, my friends and I have been teaching newbros ‘there is gold in them dar hills’ and they are making bank on cheap fits.

Or *sudden increase in Explorers? Hmmm

I have noticed the same decrease in sites, but I only just started playing again after a six month break. I’ve been averaging 20-30 systems and 2 relic sites for the past couple of nights. And I only ran into 1 other person with probes out during that time.

I’m just chilling it up to bad luck at the moment.

Read the patch notes - they added triglavian exploration ships into low sec. They hack sites as NPC miners mine high sec belts. You must get quicker, then they are, or kill them.

a area is only allowed a certain number of sites aswell, i constantly run into people who “cherry pick” sites and leave which keeps the site from despawning and letting a new one spawn somewhere else

Go to wormholes.

to find all the gas sites?

Where are you exploring? I’ve been in a few different null regions recently and haven’t noticed a significant change in site frequency.

Regarding despawning sites, I try to do this if for some reason I’m in hi sec, or if I’m in low in a system with no other pilots, but I’m not taking the extra time in null. Sorry guys.

Can’t mine or rat in even relative safety anymore. Everyone is over-saturating the safer PVE content. Unintended consequences for incoherent, scattered development. Who knew?!?!?!?!??? Maybe not every player wants to pvp?? maybe?? yeah??

Then they should not play a game where PVP is in literally every facet of the game world
