    Looks good, really not a fan of charge tile characters because far too often it benefits the other team with not enough damage benefit for my team to be worth the risk. Still looks like a good three to pull for.
    Yup more often than not it seems that they benefit from charged tiles than I ever do lol

    If charged tiles are destroyed not matched, does a single charged tiles destruction deal triple damage  ?

    I was curious as most of us know charged tiles are a double edged sword as they remain available for either team to match and gain benefits from. I was thinking if a character with decent board shake, just a few cone to mind at the moment Juggs, Carnage Thanos, destroyed a bunch of tiles if any charged tiles destroyed this way cause additional damage, of if that only happens when they're matched. 

    Was trying to think if this character and whoever else they pair with would actually lead to too many charged tiles on the board. If that could be the case, someone with good board shake/tile destruction could be a good partner clearing a bunch of charged tiles, juat wasn't sure if charged tiles generate extra damage if destroyed individually through powers like these.

    My take - since her charged tiles target "special tiles" regardless of ownership, she's actually not going to pair well with certain S-Tier characters.  She'll wipe out Apocalypses repeaters, for example, and frequently kill SW's repeater which limits its use as well -- depending on what order you put your characters it will either proc first, or else be destroyed first and be re-created so it can help mitigate damage, but if will frequently be destroyed which is sub-optimal.  OTOH she'll have all the board-shake, destroy BRB's protects but only ding his CD, and massively fuel Polaris, so there's that as well.
    Unless her numbers actively suck compared to her contemporaries, I think she'll be very useful.  If her numbers are actively good?  She'll probably be S tier, I think, particularly with the right partners.  If you're dependent on things on the board, she'll be a liability, but with other kinds of teams she'll mesh well with many of them.

    I guess this would be a good opportunity to use the singular they.

    She'll probably be good with Polaris and BRB though.  :D She'll be better than KK in terms of laziness. After 4 or 5 turns, the board probably will have 30-40 protect tiles on the board, thanks to Thoress.

    I'm still waiting for trap, web and airborne meta.

    So people were data mining because they said she but you also don't like they... What's your preferred way to describe it? The As Yet Unnamed Character is a lot to type!

    Imo KK will be pretty close to airborne meta.
    If they released some day a 5* venom and rebalance spidey, there could be a web meta.
    And a traps tiles meta only will happen if a 5* appears fortifying trap tiles.

    I think the weakness with trap tiles is being overwritten or destroyed, not being matched away.

    This one will be very interesting to see what is better red or yellow for damage

    Deadpool 4* is interesting because he has repeaters acting like traps, and then are susceptible to double dip on fortifying them. 
    Imagine if a character fortifying trap tiles appeared, sinister would be really glad to meet him.
    Edit: I got it! It's a task for mysterio 5*: mysterio enhances and fortifies 3 selected traps and 3 random tiles. The enemy will see 6 basic tiles fortified. 
    Which one will be the real trap and which one the illusion? Use your spider sense! :D

    Yellow - What KGB said. Destroys all tiles, totes up the number destroyed, and deals out a packet of damage for each one destroyed (so it double dips on Strikes/Okoye, etc). It then makes 3 Charged tiles afterwards to jumpstart the cycle.
    Can you please replace the last comma in the description with a semicolon to articulate this more clearly?

    It should be enemy special tiles. Destroying your own special could be interesting for Polaris and Kamala but harmful for any other character.
    It seems a really reliable 5*. Enforcing charged tiles meta is a welcomed idea.
    Characters such as crystal, BB, storm, cable, havok, negasonic, lockjaw and black knight could see more use.
    Can’t forget Silver Surfer in the mix of charged tile meta.

    As a note, we should be releasing the announcement for this character tomorrow. Going through some final balance/grammar passes and some other approvals. Soon(tm).

    It does not say the adjacent tile destruction is only when they fire a power. It says it also happens at the beginning of the turn.
    Yeah my bad sometimes my reading comprehension is bad when I'm drinking, and I just completely missed that part.

    It is interesting that her power will destroy all special tiles though, and not just enemy tiles. She's like an overpowered Throg who doesn't have to fire a power to clear out a board.

    I just imagined a scenario related to mirror matching of Polaris/BRB, and it's going to be traumatising as time goes by. Good luck to those using BRB/Polaris for climbing, unless you want to use + 4 blue ap every match to slow down the eventual madness. The RNG and tiles multiplication will be off the chart.

    Am I the only one who is hoping it's a tag team combo of Thor and Mighty Thor? We still don't have any character pairs in the 5* tier like Cloak & Dagger and Rocket & Groot. This definitely seems like a great opportunity for Love & Thunder.
