Aatrox often has a much larger longest killing spree than his foe does. Commonly, Aatrox takes more damage than Gangplank. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also show that the champ with increased health has less agility and thus is not able to flee from further harm when poked or engaged.

Aatrox typically racks up less CS than Gangplank. Champs that do not amass much CS normally don't need much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling fully off their abilities alone. Yet, champions with many minion kills, such as ADCs, typically have to have a lot of items to be effective. In either case, work to top the averages displayed here to do well.
