I just got ganked in a Wormhole while trying to jump back to hi sec side. A window kept popping up saying something about overheated coil and a 41 second timer. Any Idea what this is about? I didn't overheat any guns, so i'm baffled at this. After My ship popped, my pod was able to go through just fine.

After you jump through a wormhole 3 times (Say you jump in, then back out, then back in) in quick succession, the game will make you wait to jump again (2 or 3 minutes). That's probably what killed you.

Sounds like someone didn't repolarize their coils...that was a mistake

Wormholes have timers like gates you can only jump through at 30 second intervals. I am not perfectly clear on the details but:

16. Jumping through the same wormhole twice starts a 4 minute timer during which you can not jump back through.

From this wiki page.

Thank you for the explanation and linkage. Lesson learned the hard way tonight :(
