As an example, Azir’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 1.8 is similar to Riven’s ratio of 1.9, highlighting that Azir may be just as central to his team's team fighting potential than Riven.

Azir typically has a significant smaller longest kill spree than his enemy does. Commonly, Azir takes less damage than Riven. This commonly reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also indicate that the one champ has less mobility and thus is unable to kite away from additional harm when poked or engaged.

Azir typically racks up a similar amount of CS than Riven. Champions that do not get many minion kills typically don't require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale properly off of their abilities alone. However, champs with plenty of minion kills, such as ADCs, usually have to have a lot of items to be useful. In either case, try to pass the values shown here to do well.
