Ashe’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 2.2 is nearly equal to Swain’s ratio of 2.4, indicating that Ashe may be just as central to her team's team fighting potential than Swain.

Ashe normally has a similar longest kill spree as her foe does. On average, Ashe takes less damage than Swain. This often reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also indicate that the champ with higher HP has less agility and thus is unable to flee from additional harm when poked or engaged.

In Ashe vs Swain matchups, Ashe often tallies many more minion kills than Swain. Champs who on average do not get many minion kills normally don't need much CS to be effective.

In either case, work to do better than the averages displayed here to do well.
