Illaoi normally has a slightly smaller longest killing spree than her opponent does. On average, Illaoi takes more damage than Caitlyn. This often reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also imply that the one champion has less mobility and thus is not able to flee from additional harm when poked or engaged.

Illaoi often totals a similar amount of CS than Caitlyn. Champs that don't amass many minion kills typically don't have to have much CS to be useful. Instead, they are able to scale well off their abilities alone. Yet, champions with plenty of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, typically require a lot of gold to be effective. In either situation, work to exceed the averages shown here to do well.
