Graves usually has a much larger longest kill spree than his counter does. Typically, Graves receives more damage than Brand. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also show that the champion with increased health has less agility and thus is not able to escape further harm when poked or engaged.

Graves commonly tallies a similar amount of CS than Brand. Champs who on average don't acquire much CS typically do not have to have much CS to be effective. They are able to scale fully off of their abilities alone. However, champs with a lot of CS, such as carries, usually have to have a lot of gold to be effective. In either situation, work to best the averages displayed here to do well.
