From what I gather, it’s not a matter of whether it works or not. It’s a matter of the stat gain involved.
By evolving a yellow to red using a green, you are getting a lower total stat growth than if you use 2 yellows to make the red. The optimal statistical outcome for a tower would be using 4 greens to make 2 yellows, then those 2 yellows to make a red.
The ultimate point being made with this thread is that a red made from a yellow and a green will have a lower total DPS than a red made from 2 yellows.
