This is NOT earth shattering people! All of your characters, minus a few that are utilizing feats they no longer qualify for, are perfectly fine and playable. +1/6 is a little too much of a cut from +1/2 IMO, but +1/2 was pretty ridiculous. There was a reason that everyone was taking this FCB. It was mechanically well above everything else. As such, it was bound to be brought back down to reality / "nerfed."
I think, in a vacuum, it wouldn't have been a big deal. I agree those options were very powerful, and probably should have been nerfed more toward 1/4 level or so.
However it came right on the heels of the ACG errata, which completely obliterated a lot of character builds. Personally, out of my 12 living PFS characters, 5 had some amount of retraining, and one was changed so much I'm still not sure how to fix him.
On top of that, it came out the day before GenCon starts, so it's a recipe for a lot of confusion and frustration as people try to get everything fixed. The errata should have been released after GenCon, and especially after the retraining rules were worked out.
