Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Here are the Falcon buff notes

    Honestly I would need to see him in action. I do think Gambit got the better buff, but then again locked on with the lower cooldown might be very nice.

    It sounds like he will (almost) be to evade champions what Torch is to Mystics. Just able to scale up damage to a genuinely absurd degree. This may sound niche (because it is), but also some of the most difficult content in the game has evasion involved. Every single Abyss and Labyrinth fight, for example.
    Or every single alliance war that has a mix master Korg, Falcon will absolutely shred. Just activate locked on right at the start of the fight and go to town. With 100% ability accuracy reduction, korg won’t shrug off parries or send thorns damage back, and anytime mix master would have been triggered you get additional damage. He’s definitely got his uses now.

    You really think he'll be viable for Mix Master Korg? The problem I see is that there's no way he'll end the fight in 14 seconds so you'll just have these damage intervals mixed in with intervals where you can't do much since you're waiting on the cool down for Red Wing.

    Side note: When it says "When the opponent fails to trigger an evade", does it mean:
    (a) When fighting Black Widow with a 7% evade chance, you gain crit damage on every hit that she doesn't evade? Or
    (b) You'll only gain crit damage when your AAR prevents an evade that would've triggered?

    Cause if it's the second one, Falcon still kinda sucks.

    Yeah, I’m thinking that if you have it active when he would regain his rock stacks, it will be permanently shutoff. I think that’s what the spotlight is getting at.
    As for the other question, that I don’t know. Probably the second one though

    Does feel like they've changed his overall mechanics but instead beefed them up. And I'm fine with that.

    I'll need to see him in action (and I have a very low rank 5* I will take for a spin) but it seems like in the right scenario, he can do some major numbers. Like most evade champs you can really build your damage. And they make the Lock On more available.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how he plays

    He looks really disappointing.

    Having Gambit Falcon as my first 6 stars doesn't look so bad anymore

    He also has a synergy with Thor ragnarok coming soon. Thor ragnarok is getting buffed!!???

    Like others have said the cooldown feels way too long. On evade heavy fights where you're basically using him for the evade shutdown there's already champs out there who don't have to spend a third of the fight without their evade counter active. Maybe the damage increase will be enough to tolerate the long cooldown, we'll see when it goes live, but someone like NT or Elsa can do the same job without it. Cut it down to 4-5 seconds and it seems more practical to be worth using.

    It’s not about making him the best option , it’s about making him a viable option. Sure , may take a little longer , but Elsa and Nick cant counter thorns, or korgs?

    It’s worth using if you don’t have them either

    I hope his zeroed in effect stays for the whole duration of his special attacks. The spotlight doesn't state clearly if the zeroed in disappears when locked on expires. Would suck if you trigger his sp2 then the zeroed in expires before he lands his second hit.

    I think he looks phenomenal.
