After updated, Purple Security Doffs will have a 20% chance of summoning in ONE additional Rank 3 security team member and only a 10% chance of summoning TWO.
The OP has 3 Security Doffs equipped, this is why multiple tooltips are showing and is not something that is likely to change as each individual doff is applying its bonus separately. In other words, having three 20% chances is not the same as having one 60% chance. The tooltips are set up in this manner to illustrate this difference.
And one last note: Security Escorts beamed in by this Doff are currently not suitable for hazardous environments (such as Nukara) and will combust upon entry. The responsible duty officers are now receiving additional training regarding environmental precautions, and should be capable of avoiding this situation in the future.
Yes, judging by how the purple doffs work with Support Drones, Phaser Turrets, and Quantum Mortars, I think the 20% chance for two security officers was intentional on Heretic's part, to represent a clear step up from the blue versions, and he allowed slotting multiple Security doffs because unlike the Engineer turrets and drones, they last for a lot less time, and die much easier.
