Heimerdinger usually has a much larger longest kill spree than his foe does. Commonly, Heimerdinger receives less damage than Leona. This often reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also imply that the champ with more health has less agility and thus is unable to flee from further damage when poked or engaged.

Heimerdinger commonly earns much more CS than Leona. Champs who on average don't earn many minion kills typically don't have to have much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale adequately off their abilities alone. Yet, champions with tons of CS, such as ADCs, usually have to have a lot of items to be effective. In either case, try to do better than the values displayed here to do well.
