Ekko usually has a slightly larger longest killing spree than his foe does. Commonly, Ekko receives a similar amount of damage to Nidalee. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also imply that the champion with more HP has less mobility and thus is not able to flee from additional harm when engaged or poked.

Ekko commonly gets much more CS than Nidalee. Champions that don't amass a lot of minion kills typically do not require much CS to be useful. They are able to scale adequately off their abilities alone. Yet, champs with large numbers of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, typically require a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, try to exceed the values presented here to do well.
