    I’d take a Raged King under eternal time in the core over a Queen under the same circumstances any day.

    Different uses. Different utility.

    I ask you this. Which is better a hammer or a saw?

    Add a few healers and a rage. It works perfect

    I think Supercell should give him something extra and cool power ( like when we use hi ability.. first he should stomp his sword in the ground and then we get something like Earthquake Spell type damage in surrounding area..
    What do you guys think ?

    Youíre comparing apples to oranges, Call of Duty to Animal Crossing. The king isnít meant to work with healers (Iíve tried...), he is a tank. The queen is a more strategic hero that takes healers or protection to be effective.

    Also, bolded line is quite sexist, youíre basically saying men are always stronger than women when in fact, that is entirely not true. And I am not female, I speak from experience.

    Thanks so much to TerMinus Prime for the sig pic!

    None of the Heroes are inherently "stronger" or "better" than the others. Saying the Barbarian King is not as strong as the Archer Queen is just ridiculous since they both fill completely different roles.

    The Barbarian King is designed to take massive amounts of damage. The Archer Queen can't. So in that regard, the King is far tougher than the Archer Queen. Each Hero is designed for a specific function. If they all performed the same role, there'd be no need for unique Heroes.

    It's like saying this apple isn't as spicy as this chili pepper. Just because both of them are fruits doesn't mean they should taste the same.
    Come on man, the Archer Queen is clearly far superior to the Barbarian King. "Designed to take massive amounts of damage"? My king has half the HP of a Pekka, that's hardly massive amounts of damage

    I don't see any problem with the 1st TH7 hero being weaker than the TH9 hero, but let's not pretend like obvious facts aren't true. There's a reason why every online strategy page says to prioritize upgrading AQ over BK - because she's just flat out better, absolutely no matter what attack strategy you are using. BK is still useful though so I don't see any problem with it

    Looks like the OP is trying to conjure a cool and powerful answer

    You quoted my post and yet didn't answer my question at the very top of it. What facts are you talking about? Or to clarify, in what way is the AQ better? What metric are you using to compare who is better or worse?

    At level 70, the BK has 9300 HP where the AQ has 3190 HP. I don't care how you slice it, 9300 is almost triple what the AQ has. I'd say that makes him much more durable.

    Damage per hit, the AQ does 585.75 while the BK does 600 per hit. Once again the BK has a higher stat.

    One of the reasons why strategy guides recommend upgrading the AQ is simply because she has range. Queen Walking is one of the most effective strategies where you can take advantage of her ranged shots, whereas the BK would be forced to soak up a lot of that damage.

    To be fair to op here I do agree, maybe weaker isn’t the right term but I can do a lot better when my king is upgrading attacking with my other hero’s than I do with my queen or gw or now even my rc upgrading I would not be surprised if you pulled analytics on stars or percentage with hero’s offline folks missing a queen or gw in an attack on average will score lower than folks with a Bk offline. I think that has more to do with that you can replace a Bks main benefits with healers on a queen or gw or by tanking using another tanky troop . Where we no troop combo + king replaces what the queen or gw bring to the table. There isn’t a way to boost other hero’s attacking power in the same way you can compensate for a lack of the Kings tanking. Sounds like we need a new troop that instead of healing boosts damage or attack speed so you can do king walks

    all kidding aside if there was any ability id like to see added to the king it would be that he draws (redirects to himself) fire from near by buildings when you use his abilities

    I think king isnít weaker just he just not a battle starter but needs to be selectively deployed at the correct time to cause maximum damage.
