That's basically what the PvP community has been saying since the wretched thing was announced. If a console is so good that everyone needs to use it, then what's the point of having it? Why not just adjust the stats upward the same amount?
Terrible design decision. And now this latest change, while better than having them stack at full strength, is bound to tick a lot of people off. Every single person in the game is getting nerfed, but if Cryptic didn't do dumb things like designing items that are absolutely must-have they would have never be in this situation :p
As an aside, this patch also has a lot of good changes, like shield distribution officer and HE changes. Unfortunate that sci is getting nerfed further into uselessness though (and this is coming from a guy who pre-season 5 was saying that sci was too powerful in PvP and needed to be toned down) -- 75% resists to science was a monumentally bad idea, although I'm guessing gravity well was broken by accident.
