Kalista usually has a similar longest kill spree as her opponent does. Typically, Kalista takes a similar amount of damage to Qiyana. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also indicate that the champ with more HP has less agility and thus is unable to escape further harm when poked or engaged.

Kalista commonly tallies a few more minion kills than Qiyana. Champions that don't finish with many minion kills normally don't need much CS to be effective.
