The Princes are dead

Since this morning's update I announce that prince and dark prince are dead. Now useless. They can't charge anymore. Prince can be stopped with 3 skeletonts without charging back again to the tower. Mini pekka is faster, stronger and costs less. The worst nerf to these two cards, they are less powerful than 1 year ago before buff

    They are fine imo. It was annoying to see a prince doing double damage by initiating charge 0.1 tile away from tower.

    I told everyone this was going to happen. Nobody listened, but their spot in the meta is exactly where I said it was going to be.
    I use some color code in my posts. Here is a small key to help you understand what some colors mean in my posts.

    They're still pretty good imo. The double prince Giant deck is still going on strong. True, the Princes now don't utilize their ability as much as they used to. But i feel like they're much more balanced now, not underpowered.

    I agree with Ferell. They were previously OP. They are now strong but not OP.

    yep. ever since the update, their charge times have become crap. it's too hard to utilize them decently on offense anymore. supercell bombed those changes, but at least they did well in other areas.

    I use Dark Prince as my damage buffer, his shield is nice.

    The princes are the main troops I play. I used to be at around 3800-4000 cup and been through higher. but now I’m stuck in 3600-3700 cups. I did not notice this balence because of being messaged but through experiencing mysterious loses. Even though I can tell the opponent is less experienced than I am and I thought I would win easily but turn out I win hardly or even got beaten up. I think I will just quit playing this game until the god damn problem was fixed. I have no idea why CR is making this adjustment while there are still other cards that are overpowered and need to be fixed.

    Well of course they're not going to perform well for you if you were uninformed about what happened to them. If you go about your merry way and expect them to charge when they used to you're going to be sorely disappointed over and over. If you pay attention to the balance changes and know what to expect you might have been able to play them in a way that would have accommodated for the change. So that trophy loss is on you solely for not educating yourself.

    And they made the adjustment because the princess were overpowered and taking over The Meta, that sounds like a pretty good reason to me. Part of the reason they do balance changes is to keep the game fresh and The Meta interesting, it's not only about balancing cards that are over or under powered.
    There will ALWAYS be other cards that are overpowered, and this time around it happened to be the princes, no personal Vendetta against you, and you quitting the game isn't going to change it back.

    I feel like the princes charging up fast kind of makes it the same as just having really fast speed, so it kind of ruins the idea that they are charging and not just fast troops.

    The princes should take a long time to charge up, but should have insanely fast charging speed and insane charge damage to compensate for the time it takes get moving. This way its much easier to tell that they aren't just moving slightly faster but are truly charging
