I am getting conflicting information about static/K162 spawn mechanics from proper wormholers and need to find actual recognized/authoritative documentation.
It was my understanding that once your new static spawns, after a roll or it expires, that if you do not scan it down right away, there can be some delay before it spawns the K162 side for randos in empire space to scan down and enter your wormhole.
I am getting a conflicting opinion from another proper wormholer, affiliated with big wormhole names, saying that if I or my team never scan down the newly spawned static, it will NEVER spawn the K162 side for people outside the wormhole to scan down. The effect being that people inside the wormhole will have ZERO visitors while we have not scanned down our newly rolled statics.
It was my understanding that the K162 will not spawn on its own until the connection has 15hrs or less of life left, after which time it has a chance every few minutes to spawn the K162. What I read SEEMED to be saying that you are pretty much guaranteed that the K162 will spawn within a couple hours of that 15hr mark.
He is the only one asserting that position, but he supports his position invoking names with reputations. Id like to be able to advise my own guys and our friends with certainty one way or another but I cant find anything explicitly saying a statics K162 WILL eventually spawn or WON’T.
If he is correct, it seems to me that before the increased connections, and even now, some/most wormholes would have been inaccessible for days at a time if no one was scanning connections from the entry side, and since wormhole space, nullsec, and lowsec are MOSTLY quiet and empty, people would rarely find their way into wormholes.
Any reference material, dev statements, or opinions based on purposeful observations that you can link would help a lot. I appreciate any help and even just any further opinions or thoughts.
