    rag is a joke and this interaction is most likely bugged

    I personally think that 5 green is a lot more useful. The AP generation from the 4 surrounding tiles are doubled which means you get 9 AP back for spending 8 green. (If it destroys a green charged tile, you get 6 green AP back). So if the board has a lot of green, or pesky tiles to get rid of, or in general just fulfilling her support role as a AP battery, 5 in green would help out a lot more.

    Is it a bug that she gets 9 ap? From the description, she gets 1 selected tile, and 5 random tile around it. That should be 6 ap gained, from 8 green ap.

    I don't know if it's designer's intent or not, but currently it works like that. And it is 4 tiles surrounding the 1 tile, so even with your scenario is 4+1=5, not 6.

    Hmm, actually upon re-reading the description, since level 5 restricts the destruction to non-friendly tiles, I would assume that at level 4, you CAN destroy your own charged tiles?

    There's no such thing. There's no ownership of charged tiles.

    You cannot destroy your own charged tiles, but you can destroy them if an enemy created them.

    My witch has 5 in green and I hate it. She is exclusively partnered with Gsbw/KK and even then I want to switch her out to 5 purple. 5ap back for 8 is tinykitty and the %chance to miss an enemy countdown tile is too high. Her green has let me down many times. I'd rather go 5 purple and have her be a much more flexible character even if her purple won't be used with Gsbw/KK/DP.

    I want to run Beast/Witch SO bad.

    And yet, she won't destroy them. So I think there is ownership of charged tiles, it's just meaningless ownership. There shouldn't be, but there is.

    Does a team that (except for GSBW's awful red) only has actives on purple and green actually work? Seems like too many eggs one basket.

    its a bug she doesn't/does destroy charge tiles based on whether they're yours or your enemies. Honestly, I'd like clarification from D3 on the whole thing because obviously, if you can pop a charged tile for AP, friendly or not, you're gonna want to.

    Except, like previously stated, you are getting 9 AP back for 8 AP due to the doubling of the four random. I prefer to think of green as a localized Lightning Storm, where you trade green AP for slightly more overall AP in other colors, but you get a 50% or better chance of hitting 1 particular tile.

    I don't know about that team, but I've been using Charlie's Angels (Prof X, SW and GSBW) as a climb team in shield sim of late and that works really well. GSBW is the only one who really takes any damage (I still need to max level my SW), but usually the match is over fast enough that she's in no real danger.

    Come on now, just because it doesn't work the way that you personally think it should makes you assume that it's a bug? It is also not the first time that it's been posted that you cannot destroy your OWN charged tile, and you're very welcome to test it out for yourself rather than assuming there's no such thing. All I'm doing is just raising awareness that 5 green is just as viable a build (and better than 5 purple imho).

    Prof X, SW, GSBW is probably one of the most best PVE teams around if Prof X has 5/?/0. Totally would suck for PVP defense though.

    who said dat?

    I said I would like clarification from D3, because right now SWitch's charged interactions are whacked out

    never said it didn't happen

    You're right. Without a proper third, they aren't that great. My favorite is Magneto simply because tile conversion without any team-ups in the way is amazing and he has a single target nuke that the pair sorely lack. Ap generation is on par with the girls team but do more damage faster. This is my go-to whenever I get to pick my 3 heroes and they are awesome at waves as well. My favorite part is that no bad board is ever crippling because your ability to reset the board comes free.

    I thought he was flat out wrong when he said you get 9 ap back. The wiki and front page of this thread has no mention about double Ap. But if this is the case, then I must reevaluate. I had no idea.

    Think this was in response to charged tiles vs basic.

    I run 4/4/5.

    Don't really use her purple/green, but when I do, I like having the utility of both the extra stun at 4 purple, and the extra AP at 4 green.

    I'm not sure anymore. Ebola said the same thing- that the random Ap gets doubled, which is a distinct difference. Maybe its an unwritten perk for going 5 in green? No idea, but I will test soon.

    I've got 4 in green, and it still doubles.

    You need to pick her out of your roster - the auto-select for required characters is broken (or possibly disabled on purpose, it comes to the same thing) in the latest patch.

    I got 3 green and it doubles the AP from the non selected tiles. If this is a bug then I'm staying 5/3/5. If this is intended then 4/4/5 may be the better option as its a net gain of 2 more AP
