I took out the shiny new Falcon, Sand Vag: A Prequel (don’t ask, you probably don’t want to know), last night and it was everything I imagined and more! I jammed every Falcon I ran up against, kept entire fleets we fought jammed, and generally made our opponents’ lives hell. We even had the following exchange due to my “skills of an artist!”

I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t want to fly a Falcon. I felt like it was giving up on the underpowered class to play the OP King (warlocks anyone?). But after last night, I can say that OP is sweet.
Yes, Falcons are overpowered. But I don’t give a tin shit any more ’cause I have one now. HA HA HA!
