This is entirely different situation. They halved the power added by consoles and skills. This is a situation where it's absolutely not true that our effectiveness hasn't been reduced. It absolutely has.

Frankly I'm not sure whether +3.5 energy at VA even warrants wasting a console slot. I think the +power consoles have been nerfed to the point they are worthless. They didn't used to add any significant power until hitting around Captain rank anyway. Now even at VA they add so little, and at lower ranks they add even less.

Can't really say I'm surprised, as this is the sort of haphazard balancing Cryptic tends to do. There are still problems with the new ground combat system that never will be fixed. This probably won't ever be fixed, either.
