I was playing as the Imperial Remnant on Ascendancy earlier today, and up until this point I never paid much attention to one of the Imperial Star Destroyer 1's abilities: Probe Droids.
As I tested it out, I came to realize that in the span of 5 minutes, all of my scout ships became completely obsolete and I saw EVERYTHING (on a 100+ planet map) due to the ability recharging in 15 or so seconds at level 1. I just thought I would bring this to you guys' attention as I thought about how overpowered this ability would be in a multiplayer match or community game on Corey's channel. One could literally scout the entire galaxy in only a couple minutes and then keep scouting it over, and over, and over, and essentially have an even better information net than the Empire of the Hand.
One could, quite literally, just sit their 1st free SD at their homeworld and do nothing but scout, and then go down the Palpatine tree later and be able to mark out any target, with PINPOINT accuracy, and know immediately what is there to determine a threat to the Remnant. Then all they have to do is fire the Galaxy Gun and that planet is gone, absolutely annihilated as well as all of its resources, and possibly allowing the Remnant to quickly gain an upper hand that they should not have had. If I had this ability when I played in a community match with Corey a while back, I would have abused it and possibly found a persons world that was simply an economic powerhouse, and annihilated it without hesitation.
