You are in error.

It was nerfed from the old 110% increase to 70%, but the effect is the same regardless.

It isn't just for that, however.

It is used to better accommodate skills like Emergency Power to Shields.

It is used to accomodate the ability to swap power settings mid-fight (which EVERY good PvPer should be accustomed to) to fit the situation (shield power when focused, aux power when healing, engine power to retreat, etc).

You're nerfed if you're not taking advantage of all of these things.

You cannot effectively take advantage of them without an EPS.
