Ranged comp fix broke lots of PVE encounters

Pretty much anything that is a ranged PVE has been affected unintentionally by the latest patch.

To list a few odds things that i have noticed so far:

- snipers running around/evading on thrasher
- horic running around chasing ppl down on warlords
- torch in bloodhunt running around, chasing the person with agro if they try to stay far

Im sure there r more examples in other areas of PVE content. Would probably be a good idea to revert the latest patch until it affects ranged comps exclusively instead of anything that is ranged in the game.

Almost seems like an AI buff Didn't we always complain that PVE is too easy and bosses are too predictable?

Frankly, I find NPCs chasing their chosen mark more interesting than increasing difficulty with insta-kill mechanics or doubling trash mobs and hit points. Sure, It may be broken right now (haven't encountered it yet) but with a bit of tuning "smart AI" mode sounds like a nice higher difficulty setting.
Let us sort our companion list and hide or kick out the unwanted ones!

1. Yeah that needs to be fixed.
2-3. That actually unintentionally brings some interesting mechanics into older fights.

I havenít seen these glitches yet but Iím excited to see them atleast, except for the first one.

I saw number 3 the other day, I'm pretty sure. Didn't realize there was a difference until I saw this thread, tbh. It's an interesting dynamic though. She certainly feels mobile, which makes sense given the jetpack and all.
