theres a problem with probes i have found for while some bug that sometimes happens and no, its not my miss use of shift or alt or anything.

issue: i set up my probes at what ever range there all same range, everythings peachy but when i hit scan all of them exept one go up one range, whats really irritating about this is if your pvping trying to scan someone and you have to scan again cause your probes are disfunctional it waste time, further more theres a skill to reduce scan time on probes. In other words this stupid bug makes that skill point less now doesnt it

I have noticed this behavior as well. If you look carefully after you resize your probe scan range you can see that even though the sphere graphic is showing the range you want the actual numerical value shown remains at the last setting for a moment as each probe changes it's range one by one to the new setting over about 2-3 seconds.

I find if you wait that extra second or two before you hit scan again the issues doesn't present itself. I noticed they started doing this after a recent patch. Don't remember which one though

Who has time to wait an extra second with that hot, PvP breath fogging up your neck???

We must accommodate the idiocracy.
