Break Week Primebeard was stronger than Roger

#23
There is multiple statements made throughout the manga of them being equal. In their last encounter, they fought for 4 days with no victor. It's not really up for debate. The two guys were equally as strong.

There is a reason why Oda created Whitebeard, and had him called Roger's equal. At the time, there was no basis of comparison for the "Pirate King" title. Oda used it a lot, but there was nothing empty speculation to go off of because Roger was dead, and Oda wasn't ready to reveal anything about him yet. So he was smart about it, and created a character who was still alive that he could use to depict just how powerful Roger was.

Whitebeard matched him for haki didnt use his gura and the fight ended up being more of a gift exchange.

All we saw was one clash and that was it. It's impossible to tell what exactly happened in those four days.

And just because the two partied afterwards doesn't mean anything. Shanks and Mihawk both party together, but that doesn't mean they didn't give it their all in their fights. Same thing will be the case when Zoro and Mihawk fight. They spent two years together as student and teacher. Probably drank together alot. Does that mean they won't give it their all when they fight for the title?

Both sets attempted to steal the others valuables and ended up exchanging gifts instead
it wasnt a serious fight.

At the end of the day Whitebeard was WSM

I doubt there's room for two and why didn't Oda also state that Roger was WSM

By facts Whitebeard is stronger
By hype they are on par best case for Roger

When we have multiple statements of characters being equals, kinda useless to attempt to refute it.
Akainu and aokiji are equals, yet one won over the other in the end, jimbei himself said they were equal. Thats what i mean, i a deathmatch battle im betting on WB winning.

No two people can be exactly equal, though. Someone would eventually lose. Like another poster mentioned, it took 10 days for a gap to emerge between Akainu and Aokiji. That's worthy of considering them equals, but Akainu has the edge. Statements of WB and Roger's equality wouldn't conflict with that view. Keeping that in mind, it's plausible that one of them has the slight edge.

I believe 36-38
I could be wrong.
Wb died at 72 2 years ago right ? So he would have bien 74 currently.
38 years ago during GOD valley,Wb was thus 36.
5 years later,the remnants of Rocks started recruiting.
30 years ago,Wb reached wan and met Oden making Wb 44 at the time and they left wano the same year.
4 years after Wb and Oden left wano(year of Hiyori's birth), they fought the Roger pirates thus making Wb 48 at that time.
Shanks is confirmed to be 39 from what I remember.

Buggy stated that whitebeard was the world’s strongest man because he was the only person to tie with roger

that seems to imply whitebeard’s title only comes from his duel with roger
