Diana normally has a slightly larger longest killing spree than her foe does. Typically, Diana takes less damage than Nidalee. This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also imply that the one champ has less mobility and thus is not able to escape further harm when engaged or poked.

Diana commonly tallies many more minion kills than Nidalee. Champs who on average don't acquire very much CS typically do not require much CS to be useful. Instead, they are able to scale easily off of their abilities alone. Yet, champions with many minion kills, such as ADCs, typically have to have a lot of gold to be effective. In either situation, work to pass the averages presented here to do well.
