Everything must be nerfed in order for them to raise the level cap.
The specific energy type consoles should be better than the generics. You gain by being selective, or get a lesser bonus that lets you mix and match, but the optional use of multiple energy types/effects. The numeric changes don't bug me because as I understand it, the math ended up the same. This change was very different and I'm thinking it will take a while to figure out how to get the complete change to give the same result the old method did. I don't think it can.
