Kingston in most aspects is very comparable to Lianna. Lianna has slightly lesser stats that Kingston, but she more than makes up for it with her higher single target special (512% compared to 445%). Lianna has an attack stat of 729 while Kingston has an attack stat of 749. The difference in damage is between 50-200 in raids depending on the defense of your target.
However Kingston provides much more utility in the form of his attack reduction debuff on enemy heroes. This attack down debuff can save your team in many situations, often buying enough time for you to charge up your healers.
Kingston in Offensive raids
Often at times when using a regular sniper, your objective will be to take down an enemy hero that is about to fire their special skill. However, most of the time it is usually a few heroes that are about to fire their special skill at the same time.
This is where kingston really shines. Kingstone will be able to neutralise (kill) one target, and at the same time, really negating the incoming damage that is going to come from the rest of the opponent team.
Kingston in Defence team
On defence it is an annoying debuff to play around, but an opponent can simply wait it out before firing off their specials, or sending a huge wave of tiles.
Kingston fits well in the wing or flank position, to help with the durability of your tank.
Kingston VS titan
Against titan, Kingston has good stats to deal sufficient tile damage to any titan, plus with the debuff helps to ensure that your team would be able to have great sustainability against the titan.
Kingston definitely fits well into the tile damage spot for the titan team after defence reduction, attack boost buffs are taken care of.
