The last few weeks I would scan for wormholes in my little corner of nullsec - I would always find 1 or 2 in the constellation I base out of. Some were usable, some were trash.

The last week - nothing. Two days ago I scanned down 2 constellations - not one.
So today I tried an experiment, I scanned down an entire region (a small region to be sure, but still).
Result:
23 total sigs, less than one sig per system in the region.
How many wormholes did I find? One.

What the heck happened?

It's all luck based. A bunch of wormholes just spawned in my area today.

WHs to Null sec aren't super common. I rarely run into them even when moving about in a class 6 or class 5 WH. When you consider how many Null sec systems there are, its no surprise you're having trouble finding them.

people in whs go in whs to get away from nullsec. so no point opening null sec whs, just prevents them from making isk

I wish I had your problems.

I went on my 15 system path last night and found about 35 wormholes and 2 grav sites. Just over an hour of scanning and 0 reward.

Maybe I should do level 4 missions and make 245 million ISK per hour.

This is kind of my point - 15 systems == 35 wormholes vs 25+ systems with 1 wormhole. That seems tremendously uneven.

It never ceases to amaze me that the only factor people take into account is "must be something wrong."

Where are you both probing? What time?

Op, you mention you probe in null sec. As the one poster mentioned, people don't really scan those down. Now there are wormholes that are outbound from K-space and into wormholes but these are not as common as statics. K162s in high sec are super common (and to a lesser degree low sec) because people actually want to get out. Not many people settle in null sec static holes, and if they do, they probably don't open them too often.

I don't think there's anything wrong. I was just annoyed that I ended up on the wrong end of the RNG luck spectrum.

My understanding is that when a site despawns, or a wormhole collapses...another takes its place minutes after?

Thats the idea but if you are probing in high sec, and especially Amarr based space, its a good chance you will run into a lot of K162 wormholes simply because a lot of people live in systems with high sec statics and want to get out AND Amarr space is huge, thus higher chance for wormholes
