WH Combat site respawn reduction c5 post Guardians Gala Patch

Hi

So i have been in a C5 for some time and after this Gala patch, I see more connections to other wormholes.
That is fine, but,
before the patch, there would be at least 2 Combat sites spawns each 24h, yes I like combat sites :slight_smile:

Now, last 24 H there has been 0 new combat signature spawns but 5 new spawns to Whs. This is very unusual.
Ofc it has only been like this for 24H and is too early to say if it is gonna be like this from now on.

Has anyone else notice this?

The mechanics for respawns isnt time based.

CCP doesn’t want you to have too much enjoyment in 24 hrs, also you might profit and we can’t have that.

Wormhole site spawns are very likely based on activity in other wormholes of the same class/constellation, so if you’re not finding sites is probably because other people aren’t running them in their holes. Why? New wandering spawn rates makes it a lot riskier, especially since high class wormholes form a sort of web of connections right now.

As far as we know, The wormhole sites spawn mechanics has not yet changed.
Due to recent bug found in Sisi ( Drifter had orbited target at 60km ) and increased wandering connections, C5 farmers might have run less sites after the patch.
If other people in C5 space run less sites, you will have less chance of spawning sites in your space.

These connection to other WHs rate is this a permanent thing, or for the Guardians Gala event only? And will go back to regular wh spawn mechanics?

The first week after the patch had WAY TOO MUCH wandering wh in high class (we had up to 7/8 wh in our home hole xD)

They reduced the rate spawn so now we have 2/3 wh in home on average but the (now) slight increase is now permanent

It’s permanent.
It was difficult to find more than 10 jumps out of your home chains before the patch, but you can easily dive into more than 20 jumps out as of now.

Wormhole spawn rates are way too high. 1 day a week maybe will have 1 or 2 but the other 6 days wormhole galore. Turn down the spawn rates a bit. This is getting outta hand.

What are you talking about?

There is a fixed amount of sites in each WH-region. If nobody does them, then they will never respawn. If all people would farm the same region, then we would have a high respawn rate.
Atleast Region 24 doesnt feel like it has a high respawn rate.
