Drone move timer reset
in Report a Bug
I had just finished a portal with my drone and was watching the cool down. It said 8 minutes and change, so I knew I had a little bit of time to get a drink even though this was going to cross 12:00. When I came back, the timer had been reset to a much higher value. Since coming into the event I could not have scheduled a drone refresh that suddenly dropped to zero, I find this to be problematic. The published cool down should have expired normally, and then the drone should have scheduled a normal refresh cycle. This is obviously an error, but it looks like it took some specific programming to accomplish because of how the time got reset.
This was already reported over a year ago, but the concensus was that while it's a really weird design choice, it's probably intended. At the very least, Niantic never changed it.
