Hecarim typically has a much larger longest kill spree than his enemy does. Commonly, Hecarim receives more damage than Bard. This often reflects different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also indicate that the champ with more health has less mobility and thus is unable to kite away from further damage when engaged or poked.

Hecarim often earns a similar amount of CS than Bard. Champs who on average do not finish with much CS typically don't require much CS to be useful.
