So, u gapclose on ur melee toon, and u wanna go ahead and q up ur next ability right?

Except it is greyed out cause the range on ur target has not updated yet.

Y does range update so slowly now? It was super smooth b4 the latest patch with the instant update.

txtspk is hard to read.

It's not specifically range that causes/suffers the problem. Any ability with a condition attached (in/out of range, enough Fury, some debuff needed(1) etc.) becomes enabled (or disabled, I think) its greyed-out status takes a (relatively long) moment to change.

(1) Example: Commando's "High Impact Bolt", which can't be used unless the target has a specific type of debuff. When the debuff is applied (normally by Grav Round in solo content), High Impact Bolt doesn't light up as available for a second or so, whereas it used to light up immediately.

Dude #1 [walking across livingroom floor] "Dude! I don't think I'm ever gonna get across the room!"
Dude #2 [sitting on couch inhaling spice] "What ya mean, dude?"
Dude #1 "I'm moving but man the distance... it's not updating man... I think I'm across but not sure."
Dude #2 "That's some heavy spice right there, dude."

He's talking about the current GUI bug. The distance to target also has delays in updates, next to skills not showing as active when they should be. It's a known bug and BW are working on it. That's all we know.

Nothing like tanking when half of your abilities don't light up even when you have enough force and they're off cooldown, lol.
