Way more lowsec anomalies/sites than nullsec?

I usually live in lowsec but started doing stuff in nullsec recently. One thing I noticed is that most lowsec systems almost always have a stack of cosmic anomalies and combat sites. On the other hand, most nullsec systems I visited have close to zero, even though no one but me is in those systems.

Do sites and anomalies spawn much less in nullsec?

In populated systems people are more likely to run them. In deep null there are rarely visited systems where the signatures accumulate. Can be quite a bonanza when someone does eventually find them.

In sov null there are mechanics which allow a system to be upgraded so it spawns more sigs/anoms. If you visit fully upgraded system you will notice dozens of these (as well as dozens of null sec players running them.)

I have a theory that each region or maybe each rat type shares a set number of each anomaly and since lowsec is so scary for the kind of people who would rather run hideaways and refuges don't go to lowsec, it's not surprising they are stacking up there. Smile

It used to be based on constellation, if I recall.

The idea was to balance the system load by distributing players / sites.

Can't say if it still is.
