Diana typically has a slightly larger longest kill spree than her opponent does. Typically, Diana takes less damage than Nasus. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities; however, it can also illustrate that the champion with higher HP has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from additional damage when poked or engaged.

Diana commonly gets less CS than Nasus. Champions who on average do not get very much CS typically don't have to have much CS to be effective. They are capable of scaling adequately off of their abilities alone. Yet, champs with a lot of CS, such as ADCs, typically need a lot of gold to be useful. In either situation, work to exceed the values presented here to do well.
