He looks seriously good now on paper. Lets see what everyone else thinks. He has bleed resistance, big sp damage, he counters thorns, a new ability called Flax Jacket and what i think is a namor like sig ability. I can't wait to test him out when the buff goes live!

    hes also gonna be great for suicides and the only bad thing i see so far is the reduction of stun chance on sp1 from 100% to 85%. would have been cool to see him get some new synergies but its fine.

    falcon looks interesting as well. he doesnt appear to need the dupe, unless you want better crits. imo gambit looks better on paper but im excited to play with both of them.

    I also have a 5 star falcon...that's why I was excited about both...he looks like a good evade counter
  • i have a gambit as a 6 star. can’t wait to see what he’s like in game because hopefully then he will actually be viable...

    Just watch some old Gambit gameplay, he deal some ok damage with 180% prowess, now imagine it with 400% prowess, that gonna be crazy. Btw answer to OP, it is like Omega red's Tentacle hits

    Unknown character in one of Falcon's synergies? Consider me intrigued...

    For the upcoming buffs, I'll wait for a YouTuber to dumb it down for me. I'm severely confused, probably because I don't even know what the current abilities of the champs look like.

    Captain Falcon? US Agent? Another Winter Soldier?

    I have both champs as 6* and a mutant T5CC. Hopefully gambit will be worth it, if not, it looks like a fine upgrade. Falcons looks great as well, but seems to be for more specific fights. He will counter Very annoying fights at least.

    Surprise Seatin hasn’t done a video about them.
  • I shall wait for some gameplay on them. I may have use for gambit yet. I still don't like falcon, but thats personal. Maybe I'll be abel to use that 6* now though

    It has actually always been 85% in the description, but I believe in increases based on armour rating so it ends up being a stun every time

    I havent read the abilities, but reading your comments made me excited cause my last 6 star pull was gambit and i also have a 5 star falcon.

    Now on to read both new abilities =)

    As some one who has a duped Gambit in quite pleased with this update

    Im assuming the -100% bleed thing works like Surfer's? The debuff still shows up, so I can a) still use AA against him and b) use him on Biohazard or bleed nodes and heal?

    Isn’t this same as the old Gambit stun chance?

    @DrZola he currently has 2% increased AA for each blocking charge, so it goes up to 100% assuming you don’t cash them in.

    I didn’t see that in the new abilities so idk what’s up with that.
