I know it seems silly, but they don't want to allow stacking ICPR to the point where power pools are effective unlimited without sacrificing huge chunks of other stats. Before, there was no danger of this, but with the Fate changes it really is possible for a group to get within a few hundred ICPR of infinite power. So they're just stopping us Cappies from putting them over the top, is all. :P
Really, though, it's a net buff, precisely because the Victory Banner and Tactic: Focus are so rarely used. We get back some of the Fate on IDoME, so we end up with the same amount of ICPR on it but slightly more Crit Rating.
So, no complaining from me, despite how weird as it is to see our most useless Tactic get repeatedly nerfed.
