Most RBs in PVP run 38pts in RB and Planer Blade which provides no damage, or healing.
38Pts in RB means ET procs 100% of the time for .15% of AP for each pt in RB, which equates between 45-55 points of Air damage per tick. With Valor that will be effectively cut in half 22-27pts of damage per tick. Probably around 100 points of damage total. Not sure but I will verify when I get home.
Does not look too huge to me.
Sabo -> "hey give me a few seconds of dealing 0 damage to you to load up my charges..."
"fml that target just died! new target"
"yeah! now to wait more seconds for damage to occur over time"
Or you know, while you're placing charges, your target can either los you, or runs away from the rest of the group before any damage is actually done.

(you shouldnt get them all)
This nerf literally does nothing to hurt 38rb/28champ. It only hurts the warrior solo farm spec, which already was nerfed in 1.8 despite already being behind clerics in terms of grinding speed.

All I can say is have fun with GW2. I won't miss another PvPer whining because they can't always win.

Done about 10 matches so far since servers came up. So far it doesn't really seemed to have changed much. Sure it hits for slightly less damage but overall it doesn't appear to have impacted my spec (38rb/28ch).
I don't solo in this spec, but I can see it hurting the viability of the 38/28 PVE spec, as it was already somewhat behind the other choices. Really I think this change has nerfed the wrong audience.
