Hello !

This wormhole...
"Has had its stability reduced, but not to a critical degree yet"
I've read many guides and I can't define if this means 45 or 50% of mass left.

If anyone is able to answer precisely.. Thanks !

between 10% and 50%.

Or more elaborate between 10.0000001% and 49.99999%

Why can I also find 45% then ? I can understand a rounding from 45 to 50, but why would certain sites do the opposite ?
At the same time, why would websites give a number if it's not precise ?

Possibly because the wormholes themselves are no precise. The actual total mass can vary by I believe upwards of +-10%

I've seen that yeah ^^

Nobody never tried to define precisely this number by making a huge amount of small jumps in key times ?

The number is definitely 50% but people don't understand and write all sorts of things.

All right ! I assume that this 45% story probably comes from people finding a wormhole in the +1-10% total mass, jumping 500kt and doesn't understanding why its still above 50%

Why would somebody ever be wrong on the internet. I can not comprehend this.

CCP states it's 45%. Or, at least, the page has been reviewed by CCP Habakuk (contributors list).

I will say, however, that my own experience has always been 50%, with the 10% variance on top. So believe what you will, I guess.

It also says EOL is 25%, has anyone every found that to be the case on WH that aren't 24 hours? EOL is always 4 hours I think.

I believe that whole wiki is fubared.

It's 6 hours for a WH with a 24-hour life span, 4 hours for those with 16 hours. I've lived with N766 and a B274 statics, and it was correct in both those cases.

Maybe I don't know as much as I think I do (almost certainly true) but our static is 24h and I'd bet like 100 bucks right now it's 4 hour EOL.

My experience tends to agree with Nathan, but I've also seen a few anomalies in time left. (4 hours becoming 6, never seen 6 becoming 4 however)

It's always 4 hour EOL on a 24 hour hole. Plus or minus the 10% variance of course.

I know because i stare at holes all day.

And 25% of 24 is not 4. So yeah, wiki is fubared.

Just to clarify on the percentage error thing: there's a difference between percentage difference and percentage point difference.

10% of 45% is 4.5% - meaning anywhere between 40.5% and 49.5%

I think though, the standard deviation is pretty narrow as in my experience it's tended to be very spot on to 45% nearly all of the time.

EONL is definitely 25% on the WH statics I have known (16hrs and 24hrs total life giving 4 and 6) but there's nothing to suggest this hasn't been improperly applied to some static types.

When I lived in a C6 > C6 WH (the static is a 24h hole) EOL time was always 4 hours.
We kept good track of iit and often ran out WHs on time in those days.

Couldnt tell you the EOL time on our current C5 static since i don't think i've ever seen it time out.

My 3 years of experience watching and rolling holes says it's 50/10 on the mass and always 4 hours for RENL (16 or 24 hour holes).

Probably 4 Hours, but I've had a few holes last longer than they should before.
