Janna normally has a significant smaller longest killing spree than her counter does. Commonly, Janna receives less damage than Jayce. This often reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also indicate that the champ with more health has less agility and thus is unable to escape further damage when poked or engaged.

In Janna vs Jayce matchups, Janna usually gets many fewer minion kills than Jayce. Champs that do not get many minion kills usually do not require much CS to be effective. They are able to scale fully off of their skills and stats alone. However, champs with tons of CS, such as ADCs, typically require a lot of gold to be useful. In either case, work to outperform the values shown here to do well.
