Three minutes of being detected and unable able to use their favour they paid 200-1600 renown for is one hell of a cheap trick. Not too mention negating the void blending they may have paid for. Recon Beacons are skills and so are very very cheap (25pts on a light cruiser) compared to the 200-1600pt favours they wipe out.
Okay so the widowmaker can detect to 10k but at least you can try to counter it. There is no counter for the 25pt recon beacon.
At the moment... the only defense is that most people don't think of using it. Just look at all the threads about people complaining that Eldar are OP.
