Nameplates changing their alpha value mid-combat

Hello, i hope someone can help me here, because i have no clue what the acutal issue is nor whats causing it.

Sometimes when I'm engaged in a fight, some nameplates start changing their alpha value and color (see provided screenshot). This is really annoying because you can't really see them anymore. Why or how does it happen? I don't know. I'm not a heavy addon user so i just use the default Blizzard Nameplates and customized some CVars to my personal preference, you can find a list of changes i made beneath.

The CVars are changed within the AdvancedInterfaceOptions addon. Disabling it, did not solve the issue.
Cvars:
Code:
SetCVar("nameplateMinAlpha", 1); -- Default 0.5
SetCVar("nameplateMinScale", 1); -- Default 0.8 The minimum scale of nameplates
SetCVar("nameplateMaxDistance", 60)	--Maximum distance at which nameplates are shown
SetCVar("nameplateOverlapH", 0.8)	-- Default 0.8 Percentage amount for horizontal overlap of nameplates
SetCVar("nameplateOverlapV", 0.5)	-- Default 1.1 Percentage amount for vertical overlap of nameplates 
SetCVar("nameplateSelectedScale", 1)	-- The scale of the selected nameplate
SetCVar("nameplateMotion", 1)	--Defines the movement/collision model for nameplates 0=Overlap, 1=Stacking
SetCVar("nameplateShowEnemyPets", 1)	--Hide enemy pets
SetCVar("nameplateShowEnemyTotems", 1)	--Show enemy totems
SetCVar("nameplateSelfAlpha", 1)	-- The alpha of the self nameplate
SetCVar("nameplatePersonalShowAlways",1)  --Always show the Personal Resource Display
SetCVar("ShowClassColorInNameplate", 1)	 --Enable Class Color in Enemy nameplates
SetCVar("ShowClassColorInFriendlyNameplate", 0)	--Disable Class Color in friendly nameplates

Small piece of code i use aswell:
Code:
--Scale / Outline NameplateNames
local function ScaleNameplateNames(...)
	for i, frame in ipairs(C_NamePlate.GetNamePlates()) do
		local names = frame.UnitFrame.name
		names:SetFont(STANDARD_TEXT_FONT, 10, "THINOUTLINE")
		names:SetShadowOffset(1, -1)
	end
end
NamePlateDriverFrame:HookScript("OnEvent", ScaleNameplateNames)
